New York Jets – Why Josh McCown Was Right Choice

Scott Mason on why the New York Jets signing Josh McCown was the right move…

Our long national nightmare is finally over.

Quarterback Josh McCown has signed a one-year deal with the Jets, putting an end to one of the most pathetic quarterback searches in recent memory.

The career journeyman, who will be 38 on opening day, brings with him a career that includes making starts for five different teams with an accumulated completion percentage below 60%, a touchdown to interception ratio that is nearly even, a sub 80 QB rating, and an overall record of 18-42 as a starter.

New York Jets- Veteran QB Options Ultimate Breakdown

David Aitken with the ultimate breakdown of the New York Jets remaining QB options…

Embrace the tank? I don’t know if the Jets are there yet, but they clearly aren’t taking the aggressive approach to free agency. The Tyrod Taylor situation turned out to be a nonstarter, and the panic of going full-Osweiler on Mike Glennon turned out to be an overreaction. Even Brian Hoyer – the generally accepted “settle” target – quickly signed with the 49ers. Who is left?

NYDN – Another Geno Smith Hit Job?

Scott Mason on the recent takedown piece of Geno Smith by the Daily News…

Daily News’ Jets beat reporter Manish Mehta wrote what can only be described as a blatant hit piece on quarterback Geno Smith, a complete and total character assassination of the lowest order.

Geno Smith is not without his faults both on and off the football field, but the lengths to which Mehta went in attempting to destroy the quarterback’s reputation makes you wonder if there isn’t something deeply personal behind the attack.

Should New York Jets Pursue Chase Daniel?

Dalbin Osorio on if the New York Jets should pursue Chase Daniel at quarterback

One of the bonuses of being patient and letting the market dictate itself before you jump in on free agency is that you are able to take advantage of opportunities that aren’t there at the beginning. When free agency started, the QB market was Mike Glennon, Brian Hoyer, and Colin Kaepernick. As of today, the market includes Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, and Chase Daniel. The Jets are not expected to be in on Romo, have expressed interest in Cutler, but is Daniel the best option aside from re-signing Geno Smith

New York Jets Sign Kelvin Beachum & Chandler Catanzaro

Don’t panic.

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve seen me constantly tweet the hashtag #DontPanic as the offseason is now two days old. The New York Jets were in on Nick Perry and Mike Glennon until presumably the price tags for both players became too high. They appeared to not be in on any of the top flight cornerbacks, like AJ Bouye and Stephon Gilmore, and they did not appear to be linked to any of the tight ends like Martellus Bennett either. As exorbitant contracts were doled out ($47.5 million for Pierre Garcon?), Mike Maccagnan smartly sat out the first wave of free agency and it appeared he would not give in to impulse and was very content with resigning core players that performed well and letting the market come to him.

Could New York Jets Turn To Familiar Face At QB?

Scott Mason on the New York Jets needing to potentially turn to a familiar face at quarterback…

So much for Tyrod Taylor, Jets fans.

The 27 year-old quarterback, who was the object of much affection on Jets twitter, broke many green hearts when he agreed to restructure his deal with the Buffalo Bills just days before he was widely expected to be cut.

Taylor is by no means a perfect quarterback.  While his athleticism and arm strength are off the charts, he is, at his core, a one-read quarterback who does not see the middle of the field.
