This Sunday, 38-year-old Josh McCown will actually compare up with an hostile quarterback who’s older than him.
“It will be good for once,” McCown quipped Wednesday in the Jets locker room.

“Brady will substantially be personification prolonged after I’m retired the way he’s going right now,” Todd Bowles said.
There is one spark of wish for the Jets: Brady has missed two true practices since of a twist in his non-throwing shoulder. But the signal-caller pronounced Wednesday he expects to play Sunday but any stipulations when the Jets and Patriots face off at MetLife Stadium.
The leader takes over solitary possession of first place in the AFC East.
“I feel really good,” Brady pronounced on a discussion call. “I’m vehement for this weekend. I’m not too worried.”
McCown, now in his 15th season, uttered honour for his counterpart.

“Tom has set a customary and a symbol for quarterbacks in the league,” the Jets starter said. “What he’s been means to do is zero brief of conspicuous and to a degree, it’s special to go against him since he’s widely regarded as the best to ever play. In my opinion, substantially justly so.”
Running back Bilal Powell (calf) and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, toe) both missed use Wednesday in Florham Park.
Wilkerson — who hasn’t available a pouch this deteriorate — was formerly traffic with a shoulder damage he sustained in Oakland, and he combined a toe issue to his flourishing list of ailments in the Cleveland win this past weekend.
Powell, meanwhile, suffered his damage at the finish of the first half of Sunday’s victory. Bowles pronounced Powell’s standing is “up in the air.”
