2017 was a much better year in the grand scheme of things for the New York Jets. Here are the grades for the team’s quarterbacks this season.
Overall, even though the New York Jets had the same 5-11 record in 2017 as they did 2016, it was still a much better season for them. Most of the young players showed quick progression as the season went on. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for everyone.
While there were a lot of progressions, it wasn’t really shown from the young quarterbacks. Bryce Petty seemed to get worse, and no one can say much of anything about Christian Hackenberg since he still hasn’t seen the field in a regular season game. The only positives at the quarterback position came from veteran Josh McCown.
McCown threw for 18 touchdowns and only nine interceptions. He also had a 67.3 completion percentage, and the all of the team’s five wins. While it’s nice they had progress in one of the quarterbacks, it would have been nicer if it was out of one of the younger guys. Well, without further ado, let’s get to the slideshow.
