From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 12): After a resurgence in 2017, McCown was a wet blanket for an already off track Jets offense. He is only worth a roster spot in leagues where every starter is rostered, and maybe not even there if Sam Darnold is ok after the bye.

For all the talk of Josh McCown coming in and potentially saving the Jets offense, he looked like exactly what he is: a 39-year old backup quarterback who is likely a much better coach than player. McCown had to deal with the same things Sam Darnold did -- poor offensive line play, no real run game and a moribund play selection -- but his veteran savvy didn't help him overcome them. His first of two inteceptions came when the Jets were already down 24 points in the second quarter. McCown came under pressure and, throwing off his back foot, tried to hit Trenton Cannon on a route down the sideline. He had nothing on the ball though, which fell well short of Cannon and was picked off. It should have never been thrown in bounds. McCown's second interception of the day, in the middle of the fourth quarter was as bad as anything Darnold has thrown this year. On a 3rd & 4 play at the Buffalo 37, McCown under very little pressure threw a pass to his left to Jermaine Kearse who was running a slant. McCown somehow missed Micah Hyde lurking underneath and the ball was picked off. If Hyde had missed the ball, the defender who was covering Kearse was likely to pick it up anyway, as he was between McCown and his receiver. This was not the improvement the Jets were hoping for.

Jets | Josh McCown struggles in Week 10 (Sun Nov 11, 05:35 PM) - New York Jets QB Josh McCown went 17-for-34 for 135 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10.

Our View: McCown was no improvement from Sam Darnold which means he was a disaster. The Jets offense is in dire straits no matter who starts after the bye next week.

Jets | Josh McCown to face Buffalo (Sat Nov 10, 09:49 AM) - New York Jets QB Josh McCown will start Week 10's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Our View: No surprise here. Rookie Sam Darnold has a foot injury that needs to get some rest in order to heal up. The Jets may have Darnold as McCown's backup this week as they only have two active quarterbacks on the roster. They do have Davis Webb on their practice squad but there's no word if they'd activate him to play as a backup or not.
