|Jets will name starting QB next week|
HC Todd Bowles knows who it is, but won't say yet
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 22, 10:40 am
|Coach Todd Bowles announced he would make his decision next Monday, after watching film of the team's third preseason game against the Giants. It's currently between Christian Hackenberg, who flopped in his surprise start on Saturday, and veteran Josh McCown.
"I have my own thoughts, but it’s a coach’s decision out of all of us," Bowles said Monday, but keeping those thoughts to himself. "We’ll discuss it after the game and we’ll come up with the best starter." (New York Post)|
FFToday's Take: Considering veteran Josh McCown has received a majority of the first-team reps in practice - and has led the scoring-challenged offense to its only touchdown in two preseason games - it would be a stunner if the 38-year-old isn’t named the starter over youngsters Hackenberg and Bryce Petty.

QB competition brewing as Jets look to settle on best option

|Though veteran Josh McCown still spent most of Monday’s practice with the first team, 22-year-old Christian Hackenberg received his most reps with the top unit in training camp. Hackenberg, who took 21 overall reps, had six opportunities with the first team, and overall, went 10-of-21 with one touchdown. (New York Post)|
FFToday's Take: This means there could be a real QB competition brewing in New Jersey. Mike Maccagnan said yesterday on Michael Kay's radio show that the team is not tanking, but the jury's still out on how effective either the journeyman McCown or the very raw Hackenberg will be without the requisite offensive weapons. WR Quincy Enunwa was just lost for the season with bulging disk in his neck. None of the Jets QBs are worth more than desperation wire fodder.
