That also means Jets fans won't see Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg at all, as many thought they would.

Coach Todd Bowles has previously implied McCown would maintain his job, but he left little doubt this time around.

"That's what I've been saying", Bowles said.

So McCown will be the guy the rest of the way?

"That's what I've been saying", he repeated.

The New York Jet quarterback and Jacksonville product passed for 331 yards and a touchdown and rushed for two touchdowns on Sunday when the Jets rallied to defeat Kansas City, 38-31.

It came as no shock to McCown. To hear (I'll start rest of season), I guess, reaffirms it. "I just have to keep my head down and keep working". "I had every expectation of doing that anyway, so glad to hear it and I'm excited about it".

"I think every guy in this locker room, when your number's called, you play until your opportunity is gone", McCown said. "That was my mindset going into each week". The Jets are expected to draft a quarterback and if they keep McCown to groom him, or sign another veteran, Petty and Hackenberg could both be on their way out the doors.

Lions QB Stafford "not out of the woods yet" with hand injury
He is on pace to finish with his seventh straight season with more than 4,000 passing yards. However, the injury sounds quite painful and is to the quarterback's throwing hand.

"Josh has played really well". I understand that eventually [the opportunity] is going to come. "He's played at a really high level".

Things just haven't played out that way. "He's earned that. So I don't really see why it's a big deal". That probably makes the top offseason questions at quarterback for the Jets to whether McCown, who is set for free agency, is part of the plan for next season and whether there's a young quarterback they think is likelier to get into the lineup than the 2016 second-round pick.

The two touchdown runs put McCown in an elite club: He joined Jim Thorpe and Doug Flutie as the only players in National Football League history to rush for two scores at 38 or older.

Petty appeared in six games and made four starts in 2016, throwing for 809 yards with three touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Asked if it's tough to remain patient, Petty responded, "I think my whole career has been 'stay patient.' If there's anything I've learned from that, it's the fact that when I start being antsy and thinking that I've got a plan figured out, it normally doesn't work out that way". "So I'm just going to keep working. keep working, keep working, keep working, not worry about anything else I can't control and we're just going to worry about who we are in here, being a good teammate, working hard in the meeting room and on the practice field".

"Patience is the key", McCown said. "I always tell young guys, 'Hopefully you're going to get an opportunity to play at some point.' So it's not necessarily if, but when". And when, are you ready? "I still have a lot of confidence in those guys, and look forward to when it is their time".

And, McCown might be the ideal complement to whomever is drafted — even if that means moving from the huddle to the sideline next season.
