Jets head coach Todd Bowles recently said he won't be switching quarterbacks anytime soon, and current starter Josh McCown agrees with him.
Despite losing four of their last five games, the Jets are still in the thick of the AFC playoff race as they sit just one game back of the final Wild Card spot. McCown has been leading the Jets' offense all season, and with playoff implications still relevant, he doesn't see a reason to change now.
"I guess we're both kind of on the same page with that," McCown told NJ.com's Darryl Slater. "There wasn't a scenario where I saw it either. I think it's good to hear it, but we were already on the same page. So I don't know if that was necessarily a new thing."
McCown is only on a one-year deal with the Jets, which is the main reason why fans are calling for either Christian Hackenberg or Bryce Petty to take over. But Bowles isn't focused on the future at the moment with the Jets looking to win.
The 38-year-old has also been performing above what was expected this season. He has thrown for 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions while owning a 93.7 quarterback rating, which is good for 12th in the league.
McCown will continue to give the Jets' his best for the next six games of the season in hopes he can help secure that Wild Card spot.
"Obviously, that's the goal," he said. "What I said when I came here is you want to bring stability to the position, and hopefully be able to play good ball while you're in there. And then if the situation changes, be able to help whoever is out there playing. I've been able to do that to a degree, but I still feel like my best ball is ahead of me these last six weeks."
The Jets will look to get back to their winning ways against the Panthers at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.
