So why did Jets coach Todd Bowles decide to sit Josh McCown? On Thursday, Bowles said McCown "will play" against the Lions. "He needs work." After tonight's game, Bowles said he and his staff decided McCown didn't need the work. "Josh has played in a million preseason games," Bowles said. Clearly, Bowles still was in audition/experimental mode. This really puts the pressure on McCown and the offense to get in sync next week against the Giants, assuming he rests his starters in the finale.
