Jets QB Josh McCown Getting No Love in Recent QB Rankings

It’s not a big secret that Jets QB Josh McCown is not going to be the QB of the future after the team went out and drafted Sam Darnold from USC this past Draft.

For now though he’s not getting a lot of love from the website Newarena.com, which is ranking all 32 starting QB’s around the NFL.

McCown is ranked ahead of just four other QB’s of all the starters in the league. Here’s what they had to say about him.

2017 stats: 267-for-397 (67.3%), 2,926 passing yards, 18 touchdowns, 9 interceptions

It’s safe to say Josh McCown and the Jets were one of the biggest surprises of the 2017 season. Not only did many think the Jets would go 0-16, but McCown was expected to be nothing more than a body to help guide New York to the No. 1 pick in the 2018 Draft. Instead, the 38-year-old completed 67.3 percent of his passes and guided the Jets to a 5-8 record in the games he started. He doesn’t possess elite arm strength or accuracy, and obviously isn’t the longterm solution for New York, but he has proven to be more than capable of putting his team in a position to win. It’s only a matter of time until Sam Darnold takes over this spot, but McCown serves as a respectable place holder and a perfect role model for the young QB from USC.
