Josh McCown will be the Jets' Week 1 quarterback.

McCown will be one of the worst, if not the worst, starting quarterbacks in the league, but Christian Hackenberg would have been one of the worst starters of all time. The Jets had no choice. They gave Hackenberg every chance to show improvement this summer. Instead, he went all the way off the rails. One of the most brittle players in football, McCown has zero shot at making 16 starts during his age-38 campaign. Bryce Petty will likely be the next man up, though the Jets have yet to announce the No. 2. Gang Green threatens to be historically bad on offense in 2017.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said he will announce his starting quarterback next Monday.

Bowles wants to watch the tape of the third preseason game before making a final decision, but the competition is all but wrapped up after Christian Hackenberg laid an egg on Saturday night. At this point, it would be a shock if Josh McCown was not named the starter for Week 1. That said, McCown's injury history suggests Hackenberg and perhaps even Bryce Petty will get a chance at some point.

ESPN New York projects the Jets to keep three quarterbacks, but believes Bryce Petty could be in "some trouble" if he's out-played by Christian Hackenberg this summer.

That's not a realistic scenario, so it appears the Jets will be keeping three quarterbacks. It's not the best use of resources when you get to keep only 53 players, but the tanking Jets have spots to spare behind brittle veteran Josh McCown. It's quite possible all three quarterbacks make starts in 2017.
