Josh McCown is A Dark Horse in Tom Brady Era

[Oct 18 2017 GMT]

Josh McCown will be the 13th quarterback to start a game for the New York Jets during the Tom Brady era, which began in 2001 with Mo Lewis' momentous hit on Drew Bledsoe. You know the rest of the story.


At 38, McCown isn't the quarterback of the future, but he's playing well in the present. He's second in the NFL in completion percentage (71.4) and is riding his first three-game winning streak as a starter. Clearly, McCown has found a nice fit in coordinator John Morton's West Coast offense.


"I guess the best analogy I can say is, everybody likes different kinds of music and, for some reason, you like that genre versus this genre, and I think for me it’s just this type of offense, just the way it’s structured is kind of how my brain sees football," he said. "So it makes sense to me."

On Sunday, McCown will make only his second career start against Brady and first since 2004. In the interest of nostalgia, let's look back on the Jets' starters during the Brady era, including their records as a Jets starter and against the Patriots:


Vinny Testaverde (35-26, 1-3): He was the starter on that fateful day in Foxborough when Brady replaced the injured Bledsoe.


Chad Pennington (32-29, 2-6): He took his lumps, but he beat the Patriots late in the 2002 season, helping the Jets to their last AFC East title. He's also the last quarterback not named Brady to win the division; he did it with the Miami Dolphins in 2008.


Quincy Carter (2-1, 0-0): He was spared.


Brooks Bollinger (2-7, 0-2): He was one of four quarterbacks to start in 2005, and he had the misfortune of having two starts against the Patriots.


Kellen Clemens (4-5, 0-1): His only start against the Patriots lasted less than a quarter. The Jets forgot to block Richard Seymour on one play and ... bam! Battered ribs.
