The New York Jets needed a veteran quarterback to develop their younger players as Josh McCown fits the bill perfectly.

Quarterback Geno Smith wasn’t a polaroid. He didn’t develop fast. Fitz-Magic disappeared when fans noticed he had no long game. Quarterback Josh McCown is a more well-rounded vet on the other hand and New York Jets fans should welcome him to the 2017 rebuilding year.

Head coach Todd Bowles can afford another losing season. The Jets cannot afford not to make serious changes, though. Fans covered their faces as we played for draft picks during the 2016 mid-season. The last legs of games were awful and fans saw the team not even trying.

McCown brings a strong arm even though the Cleveland Browns are terrible themselves. The defense needs to give him some cushion and we can definitely see more wins than last year, though. It can’t get any worse.

Vets are seasoned leaders. They are able to change plays on the dime. Plus they know the strengths and weaknesses of their supporting cast. McCown fills that role.

He can help with the development of the younger set of quarterbacks on the Jets. McCown can also serve as a building block for the future. We want the crowd to get back involved with Gang-green.

Start the shouting of J-E-T-S Jets! Jets! Jets! again. Fans shouldn’t write this off as a failed pick. We are taking the necessary steps to free salary cap room and get the ball rolling again in the future.

The majority of Jets fans are optimistic about our future. We call the New England Patriots cheaters. We look forward to winning the New York Giants game against Geno. Don’t put brown bags over your heads yet. McCown is going to show you what un-tapped potential is capable of. Especially when he does his part of developing Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg for what should hopefully be successful careers in the future.
