There is will be no late-season change of heart. McCown's 68 percent completion rate ranks fourth in the National Football League, and among players with more that 205 pass attempts McCown is 10th in passer rating (96.7). Hackenberg, a second-year pro and 2016 second-round pick, is still looking for his first professional snap.
"As a competitor, you expect to play well, and your goal is to play well. But at the same time, for his career and what he's gone through, how do you not root for a guy to finish it out right?" a gracious Petty said at his locker Wednesday in Florham Park. "As productive as he's been, you want to see that".
Todd Bowles on Wednesday confirmed a notion he'd been hinting at for the last several weeks: Barring injury, McCown will start the final four games of this 2017 for the Jets, who remain on the fringes of the AFC playoff picture after a home victory over the Chiefs last weekend.

He was drafted in 2003, and out of the league in 2010 coaching for a high school team in North Carolina. But he's having the best season of his career for the Jets.
McCown has thrown for over 100 yards in eight games this season, which ties his career high.
"I watch them work every day and they work really hard on the practice field and in the film room, so I do believe that wholeheartedly that when their next opportunity comes, they're going to be better for it because of the work that they put in right now", McCown said.

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". Maybe they didn't? If not, the Jets would take another in April's quarterback-rich draft. He's only been active for two out of his first 28 games. So I think for me. I understand that eventually [the opportunity] is going to come. "I just have to keep my head down and keep working". Taking extra time to throw whenever I can to throw, or work mechanical things. "You go back, develop a plan in the offseason".
Christian Hackenberg will have to wait until next season for a shot to play.
If they don't play this season, there's a chance they won't be here in 2018. But neither Petty nor Hackenberg are concerned about the future. Petty is viewed more as a backup. "So I didn't consume or concern myself with anything other than that, just being as prepared as possible so if something were to happen, we'd be ready. He's earned that. So I don't really see why it's a big deal".
