As the 0-2 Jets prepare for their home opener against the Dolphins, let’s dip into the Jets mailbag: Calvin (@shadytext) If McCown continues to minimize mistakes, how do you go about benching him? Michael Natale (@michaelnatale31) Is Josh McCown’s play making it tougher on Todd Bowles to start Christian Hackenberg or Bryce Petty? This is...

Jets have found their perfect transition QB

Claude Pelon, a defensive lineman on the Jets practice squad, was trash-talking fellow defensive lineman Mike Pennel about whether Pelon’s USC Trojans would whip Cal in a battle of unbeaten teams Saturday. In the middle of it was Josh McCown. At one point Pelon was on McCown’s back as if trying to get a piggy-back...

Buffalo Bills league leaders: Jordan Poyer standing out in the secondary

Buffalo Bills league leaders: Jordan Poyer standing out in the secondary

He sits at second in the league in pass breakups and at the top of the sack list among defensive backs The Buffalo Bills’ offense put out a weak showing in their 9-3 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, but a few individual defenders used the game to boost they’re profiles a bit. Passing A low-volume performance from Tyrod Taylor caused him to fall to 24th in the NFL in passing yards with 349, leaving him between Josh McCown and Blake Bortles on that chart. His two touchdowns from the Jets game still put him in a tie for 14th in that category, although his placement in the...

Josh McCown gives an honest assessment of Jets’ bludgeoning

OAKLAND, Calif. — Here’s one of the things that’s to Josh McCown’s advantage for all the things he has seen, and felt, and heard; for all the times he’s left football fields battered, bloodied and bruised; for all the times he was on the wrong side of a final score’s hypen: You lose the ability...

Raiders: Game grades

Offense Nice start for offensive coordinator Todd Downing, with 71 points and 769 yards through two games. Another telling stat: The Raiders didn’t commit a turnover against the Titans or Jets. Defense There were some penalties, mistimed jumps (hello, David Amerson) and ultimately two Jets touchdowns. But the Raiders also allowed only 271 yards and sacked Josh McCown four times. Special teams Johnny Holton deserves credit for racing downfield to...

There’s another four games to be played, and we’re still here. Dolphins at Chargers The fighting fish begin their season in LA facing the newly-moved Chargers after last week’s game against the Buccaneers fell by the wayside due to Irma. This game should be a toss-up. Both teams are strong Jets at Raiders The Jets are one of the most hapless teams in the NFL, having continued their travails to find a starting quarterback and settling for Josh McCown. They’ll be facing the Raiders, who finally found their answer in Derek Carr (and Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper). It’s hard to see...

Five Raiders to watch week 2 vs Jets

Five Raiders to watch week 2 vs Jets

There aren’t many that see the New York Jets as a threat to the Oakland Raiders but there are a few new players fans will watch to see how much they will help. The Oakland Raiders are heavily favored in their 2017 home opener against the New York Jets Sunday. We already know the Raiders have too much on offense for the Jets. Quarterback Derek Carr has receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. The Raiders also have the best offensive line in football to handle the Jets’ formidable defensive line. So QB Josh McCown and his weaponless offense shouldn’t be able to keep up with the...

Jets have competition if they truly want to be worst in NFL

Bless Josh McCown’s unassuming, unbridled blind ambition as he powers on in pursuit of goals most of the free world believe to be impossible to attain. The Jets’ 38-year-old quarterback, playing on his eighth team in 15 NFL seasons and carrying a 2-21 won-loss record as a starter dating to 2014, is a mere caretaker...

Josh McCown not worried about Jets' rough Week 1

New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown and head coach Todd Bowles say they aren't concerned about the team's poor offensive performance in a 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. What It Means: It should be noted that a large chunk of the Jets' skill players just got to the team during training camp, and McCown touched on that. “I think we’ll get better as they learn the offense more,” McCown said. “Shoot, those guys got here five days ago and they had some explosive plays in our game." It will be another tough game in Week 2 for New York, as they travel cross-country...

Think of it this way: Your spouse drags you to a restaurant you would otherwise never have heard about, let alone eaten in. In my house, for instance, that’s Indian food. I tell my wife I’m going on the road, she instantly dreams of how much chicken vindaloo she can hoard while I’m gone. I...
