Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on Twitter

The Jets quarterback position is always closely scrutinized, with controversies dreamed up even when the team is adamant none should exist.

If the team says it's an open competition, everyone suspects they'll hand the job to their favorite. When they say their choice gives them the best chance to win, nobody agrees. Even if they name a starter and give him all the starter reps, the tendency is for everyone to assume they must be lying.

This year is different though. There's a real competition, drawing justified attention on a local and national level because it's completely wide open.

The case for Josh McCown

McCown started the first 13 games of last year and the Jets were a different team without him. Although he only won five, the Jets blew a late lead or missed a late opportunity to tie or go ahead in more than half of their eight losses with McCown at the helm. With a better supporting cast, McCown could have had the Jets in contention for a postseason spot late into December. He now has the improved supporting cast, so how far could he take them?

The issue is that the Jets can't rely on McCown emulating his 2017 performance. A few years ago, they re-signed Ryan Fitzpatrick after a record-breaking 2015 season, only for him to completely fall apart in his second season. Of course, part of that was because he missed most of the offseason program while waiting for a new deal. McCown has had a full offseason to prepare and take the lion's share of the first team reps, having succeeded last year even though he barely played in the preseason.

The case for Sam Darnold

With the rookie Darnold, the only question is how soon is too soon? This will be his team in due course and, based on his progress during the offseason, that seems like it will come sooner rather than later. Jets fans have already seen how a quarterback who starts as a rookie can develop bad habits, require high-priced talent around them to succeed, and can get the yips once they lose trust in themselves, their receivers or their protection.

The prevailing notion that the Jets aren't a playoff contender might not be shared by the team, so the idea that they might as well just throw Darnold out there as soon as they can doesn't really fly. If the future is now, that could mean they're sacrificing the possibility of a postseason run -- one which would be the first for this regime and each of their longest-tenured players.

More important than that, though, is whether sitting Darnold or throwing him out there before he's ready will slow down his development. If the Jets feel he can learn by shadowing whoever starts, then he might have to bide his time.



The case for Teddy Bridgewater

In any other season over the last decade -- and probably longer than that -- Jets fans would have sold their souls for a player with Bridgewater's credentials. A 25-year old pro bowler who led his team to the postseason in his second season?

If it sounds too good to be true, it's because it probably is. There's a reason Bridgewater was available, let alone on the team-friendly deal the Jets signed him to.

Bridgewater's horrific knee injury two years ago could have ended his career and the jury is still out as to whether he can be an NFL starter ever again. However, the ongoing concern over whether he would be able to compete during the offseason program was overblown. After all, Bridgewater saw brief action in a regular season game late last season, so he'd already made it back to the point where he could practice fully and be on an active roster six months beforehand.

Reports indicate Bridgewater looked good in practice in Minnesota but that Vikings doctors still had some concerns. If his athleticism is compromised, how much is that going to affect him? Bridgewater has always been more of a pocket-passer than a dual threat quarterback, so he doesn't rely on his legs as much as his quick decision-making and accuracy.

Outlook

With McCown in place, the Jets' whole season doesn't hinge on Bridgewater being able to perform well as the starter. In 2013, the Jets brought in an injury-prone former pro bowler in David Garrard and after his injuries forced him to retire before preseason, they ultimately ended up forced to start rookie Geno Smith, who was ill-prepared and inconsistent.

Darnold may yet prove that he is ready, but if he doesn't win the job he'll likely see early action -- even if only in mop-up duties. The calls for him to take over will grow in intensity if the starter falters or the team falls out of contention.

The Jets win over the Giants in Week 10 came as a costly one. 

Head coach Adam Gase said two starters, tight end Chris Herndon and offensive lineman Brian Winters, both suffered extensive injuries. 

Herndon, who was making his season debut, fractured a rib. Winters re-dislocated his shoulder and may need surgery.

Crowder: Jets showed resiliency 00:00:59
Jamison Crowder talked to Jeane Coakley after the Jets win. The wide out believes the team can build on this win to start a win streak.

Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder spoke with SNY's Jeane Coakley after the team's 34-27 win over the Giants.

"I thought we played a really good game today," Crowder said. "Like you said, started out hot, kind of stalemated a little bit. But then was able to finish at the end of the game, and that's what we needed... Some things we still got to clean up, as always, but I thought we played good overall."

Crowder had five catches for 81 yards and one touchdown in the win. He scored on a 23-yard pass from Sam Darnold in the first quarter to give the Jets an early 14-0 lead.

Jamal Adams after Jets big win 00:02:18
Jamal Adams talks to Jeane Coakley after the Jets beat the Giants. Adams forced two fumbles and scored his second-career touchdown.

There's nothing else you can think of to say about Jamal Adams' performance against the Giants other than that he was all over the place in this game.

The third-year safety out of LSU was already having a good weekend with the Tigers beating Alabama on their home field, but he carried that into an even better performance at MetLife Stadium for the Jets.

Adams led the Jets with nine tackles, two sacks on Daniel Jones, a pass defended and forced two fumbles, including a strip sack that turned into a fumble recovery for a touchdown. Adams ripped the ball right out of Jones' hands after beating Saquon Barkley off the line of scrimmage, and took the ball to the house without it ever touching the ground.

In their first game against each other at their shared home in MetLife Stadium, Daniel Jones and Sam Darnold put up some solid numbers for their respective teams. But Darnold got the last laugh as the Jets pulled out a 34-27 win over the Giants.

On paper, it seems that Jones got the best of Darnold based on individual statistics--Jones finished the game 26-of-40 for 308 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions, compared to Darnold's not as eye popping performance of 230 yards and one touchdown on 19-of-30 passing--Darnold also ran in for a touchdown, as well.

But the glaring issues for Jones came at a familiar spot that's been hurting him all season: holding on to the football while in the pocket.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The season has already been embarrassing for the Giants. On Sunday they managed to make it worse.

And that's a huge problem for Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and his coaching staff after the Giants lost to the awful Jets, 34-27. Things were bad enough, but a loss to the crosstown rivals is a humiliating defeat that is sure to enrage owner John Mara. Even worse: They've now got two weeks to stew about it, thanks to an ill-timed bye.

To this point, Shurmur wasn't really on a hot seat and his coaching staff wasn't in much danger. The Giants underwent an uncharacteristic, in-season change just two years ago and don't really have an appetite to do that again. GM Dave Gettleman also genuinely seems to like Shurmur as a coach, and according to a team source, has preached patience and believes the team is headed in the right direction.

The Jets lost some protection for Sam Darnold in their tight matchup with the Giants Sunday, as right guard Brian Winters has been ruled out for the remainder of the game with a shoulder injury.

On a 3rd-and-11, Darnold tried connecting with Robby Anderson for the first down, but Anderson couldn't complete the catch before being taken down hard to the ground. The receiver was shaken up on the play and seemed to hurt his shoulder/collarbone, but was able to leave the field under his own power and eventually return to the game.

Back at the line of scrimmage, Winters was hit by another member of the offensive line and went down holding his shoulder area. He too was able to leave the field on his own after trainers came to check on him while down on the field.

C.J. Mosley is not having the year he thought he'd have in his first season with the Jets, having missed six games and on his way to missing a seventh this Sunday against the Jets.

Entering his sixth season in the NFL, Mosley had only missed three total games in his career prior to signing the with Jets in the offseason.

But in just his first game in green and white--a fantastic performance at that--Mosley injured his groin and has missed all but one game since.

Jets owner Christopher Johnson is "expected to remain patient" with Adam Gase and not looking to make a head-coaching change, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Jets want to see how Gase does on the job over a longer period of time and reportedly believe the situation "will sort itself out."

While the team is 1-7 entering Sunday afternoon's matchup with the Giants, it has dealt with injuries, as well as the loss of quarterback Sam Darnold earlier this season, when he was diagnosed with mononucleosis.

"It's probably just the way he's gone back to work," Gase said. "Finding ways to correct the mistakes that have been made. He's done a good job at practice, we just got to get it to carry over to games."

With the Giants and Jets playing each other on Sunday at MetLife Stadium, it will be the first time that quarterbacks Daniel Jones and Sam Darnold face off in the regular season.

Both QBs are just 22-years-old -- in fact, Jones is nine days older than Darnold -- and are already leading their teams as starters since being drafted. The Giants selected Jones with the No. 6 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, while the Jets took Darnold third overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.

ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky and CBS analyst Rich Gannon, both former NFL quarterbacks, spoke with Steve Serby of the NY Post to debate which quarterback looks better so far in their young careers.

That's why I feel like I was placed in New York, to kind of pick up where my dad left off. His career was cut short, and I just feel like that's my calling. Do I want to be here? Yes, of course."

Since the trade deadline on Oct. 29, Adams has voiced his frustration with the team after he was reportedly shopped in trade negotiations with the Dallas Cowboys.

Every New York sports fan has their one favorite player or coach, past or present, that they absolutely love. They've given years of service to help your favorite team win, and they've done so while playing or managing at the highest level. 

But not every marriage has come to a happy ending in the Big Apple. 

While this city has had its fair share of legends on every team, there have also been some pretty bad breakups throughout each league. And, as agents of chaos in this case, we're here to remind you of some of the ugliest divorces that your favorite teams have seen in recent years.

The Giants and Jets are a combined 3-14, one year after going a combined 9-23, one year after going a combined 8-24. That's a 20-61 record over the last 2 ½ seasons, for a "winning" percentage of .246.

So no, the Giants and Jets don't match up particularly well with the rest of the professional football world right now. But how do they match up with each other?

In advance of their big showdown on Sunday at the Meadowlands, let's take a look:

The Jets have already been without their starting linebackers for weeks now. Leading up to Sunday's matchup with the Giants, it looks like they'll be without their starting cornerbacks as well. 

Trumaine Johnson has hit the IR this week, and is likely done as a Jet. And now head coach Adam Gase revealed on Thursday that CB Darryl Roberts suffered a calf injury during practice on Wednesday. 

According to The Daily News' Manish Mehta, Roberts is dealing with a calf strain, which would likely keep him out on Sunday.

The Jets placed CB Trumaine Johnson on Injured Reserve earlier this week, and the team has now added a new cornerback into the secondary mix.

The Jets have claimed CB Maurice Canady, who was waived by the Ravens on Tuesday. To make room on the roster, the team placed S Rontez Miles on IR.

Canady, a 25-year-old native of Richmond, Va., was originally a sixth round pick of the Ravens in 2016 out of Virginia. In 24 career games for Baltimore, Canady made two starts, recording 50 total tackles. He made his first career interception earlier this season against Baker Mayfield and the Browns.

The Jets announced Tuesday that they've placed CB Trumaine Johnson and WR Josh Bellamy on Injured Reserve.

Johnson, who played in seven games this season (five starts), had 25 tackles, two passes defended and one interception on the season before being placed on IR. He exited the Jets' loss to the Jaguars in Week 8 with an ankle injury and did not play in their loss to the Dolphins this week.

Based on his play for the team over the last two seasons and how his contract is set up, it isn't too far off to believe that Johnson will not suit up in a Jets uniform again.

As the Jets wait for the results on the MRI Le'Veon Bell had on his knee, the team has signed another running back to the active roster.

New York signed Josh Adams to the roster from the practice squad on Tuesday, reports Manish Mehta of the Daily News

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, though, the two situations are not related. Adams is joining the active roster, so the Jets can block a certain team from stealing him off the practice squad. Schefter's source says Bell is "good," and as NFL Network's Tom Pelissero pointed out as well, Bell was seen dancing in his recording studio and has had MRIs on his knee this year as a precaution.

The Jets are 1-7 and haven't played their best football. The same can be said for quarterback Sam Darnold.

Most expected a step forward for the second-year pro this year. Many observers of the team say Darnold has actually regressed instead of improving this year.

But Darnold himself doesn't think so, though. And neither does his head coach.

During his weekly press conference following a game, Jets head coach Adam Gase begins with his injury report. And following the tough loss to the Dolphins, star RB Le'Veon Bell was on that report. 

Gase revealed that Bell was getting an MRI on his knee on Monday morning, and was forced to miss all his normal Monday morning meetings to go through with it. Gase isn't sure exactly why he needs the test on his knee. 

"I'm kinda waiting on this information. It was something I heard about this morning," Gase said. "He had to miss everything this morning to get the MRI. Haven't talked to the trainers, still going through everything. I can't say exactly where it happened because he never said anything to me during the game or said anything after the game. Not really sure the extent of this."
