The New York Jets are expected to name quarterback Josh McCown their starter for Week 1 in a press conference next Monday, per Rich Cimini of ESPN. What It Means: Head coach Todd Bowles told reporters he would announce the team's starting quarterback for Week 1 of the regular season next Monday. With the uninspiring performances of Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty this preseason, it would be a major surprise if the veteran signal caller McCown was not named the club's starter. Our models project McCown as the 30th-best quarterback in fantasy for 2017 with 3,333.2 passing...

New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg started Saturday's preseason game against the Detroit Lions, completing 2-of-6 passes for 14 yards. What It Means: Named a "surprise" starter by head coach Todd Bowles, Hackenberg played jaw-droppingly bad football in this one. He took two thundering sacks and let a ball squib out of his hand, generating a total -3 yards of passing offense. His "completions" were a pair of checkdowns to the running back. The Jets hid Hackenberg as a rookie because he wasn't ready, but it has done nothing to make him better. Our models still project...

Josh McCown to be named Jets' starting quarterback next week

The New York Jets are expected to name quarterback Josh McCown their starter for Week 1 in a press conference next Monday, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.

Bowles knows when he’ll know Jets’ Week 1 quarterback

The Jets quarterback competition was most likely decided in earnest Saturday night in Detroit. Coincidence or not, the competition was given an official end date two days after Christian Hackenberg flopped in his surprise start. Coach Todd Bowles announced he would make his decision next Monday, after watching film of the team’s third preseason game...

Only Jets defense can prevent this season from historic flop

Now that we’ve found out — with more-than-reasonable certainty — that Christian Hackenberg is not ready to be the Jets’ starting quarterback any time soon (read: Week 1 in Buffalo), it’s time for the Jets to get down to the business at hand. That means getting veteran quarterback Josh McCown ready to start the season...

Christian Hackenberg thinks the Lions did great job studying Jets tape [Stafford: nope]

The New York Jets lost to the Detroit Lions on Saturday, and Christian Hackenberg thought the Lions deserved a lot of credit for their preparation. Matthew Stafford offered a slight counter to that. I’m still trying to find the exact quotation, but the tweet above sums things up pretty well. The Jets tanking is in full force, and while it seems obvious, I find myself wondering if all of the Jets players understand it. I feel like I’m watching an NFL version of Major League, only I have little reason to think the Jets will turn it around like Cleveland did in the movie. The 49ers had a...

Christian Hackenberg continues awful preseason for Jets

New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg started Saturday's preseason game against the Detroit Lions, completing 2-of-6 passes for 14 yards.

Christian Hackenberg wasn't good in the Jets' 16-6 loss to the Lions. Did he blow his chances of being the Week 1 starter?

Jets aren’t good enough to give Christian Hackenberg a real shot

DETROIT — This was the first true benchmark moment in Christian Hackenberg’s young career. The second-year quarterback got his first NFL start, which was a surprise move of sorts on the part of Todd Bowles, but also a good, smart move on the part of the Jets head coach. The problem is, it didn’t go...

Bryce Petty gets a full second half: 'I was a lot more comfortable'

DETROIT -- Bryce Petty has been considered mostly an afterthought in the Jets' quarterback competition, with speculation focusing more on veteran Josh McCown and second-year passer Christian Hackenberg in the bid to win the starting job.

Awful Christian Hackenberg just lost his chance to be Jets starter

DETROIT — If the solar eclipse had occurred during the Jets-Lions preseason game Saturday night, Gang Green fans might have stared into the sun just so they would not have to watch their team’s putrid play. Silver linings for the Jets were harder to find in this one than Todd Bowles’ smile in a 16-6...
