Jets coach Todd Bowles said he will stick with Josh McCown as his starting quarterback.
The Jets have Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg waiting in the wings, but Bowles said the only way the young quarterbacks will get in the game is if "something happens to Josh." At 4-6 heading into the bye, the Jets are not going to make the playoffs, but that does not mean they are ready to throw in the towel just yet. McCown will be a low-end QB2 against the Panthers after the bye.

Josh McCown completed 23-of-39 passes for 262 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bucs.
He took six sacks against a Tampa Bay defense that entered this game with a league-low eight sacks. The Jets' offense never got going until what amounted to garbage time, when McCown hit Robby Anderson for a 38-yard touchdown in Brent Grimes' coverage with less than a minute left. Gang Green went on to lose 15 to 10. McCown is droppable in most leagues with the Jets on bye in Week 11.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan is open to bringing back Josh McCown in 2018.
"Josh has done a very good job for us, and not only on the field as a player but also what he's brought to the organization," he said. "He's fulfilled all our expectations of the potential we thought we had in him." McCown was brought in to be a one-year stopgap but has exceeded expectations while keeping the Jets in the Wild Card discussion. The Jets are still likely to draft a quarterback, but could bring McCown back on another one-year deal if he plays well down the stretch. Neither Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg look like franchise quarterbacks.
