Summary

The problem with the New York Jets quarterback position - aside from the fact that there's not much talent there - is nobody knows who will win the job. If McCown wins it, you're getting a decidedly mediocre quarterback who has been inconsistent over the last two years in Cleveland. Landing with the Jets - which really isn't a more talented group of players than McCown had with the Browns - won't help him become more stable of an option. The weapons he has to throw to aren't fantastic - Eric Decker is a solid No. 2 who could be forced into an ill-suited No. 1 role again with Brandon Marshall gone, while Quincy Enunwa is a decent receiver who is still has some developing to do. The rest aren't anyone you can count on, and the Jets don't have much in the way of proven pass-catching tight ends either. McCown can find the running back out of the backfield and both Matt Forte and Bilal Powell can be dangerous with the ball in their hands out a screen. However none of this adds up to anything which will induce confidence. On top of all of that, the Jets can't seriously expect to contend which means they will take a look at Christian Hackenberg at some point, so even if McCown wins the job, he won't keep it the whole season.

Jets | Equal opportunity for Jets' quarterbacks (Tue May 23, 03:56 PM) - New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg will be given equal first-team repetitions during organized team activities, according to offensive coordinator John Morton.

Our View: McCown has the advantage from his playing experience, and he may win the job because of it. No matter who is the starting QB for the Jets, there is no fantasy value to be mined here.
