McCown's emotional farewell proves Jets weren't tanking? (1:38)

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets coach Todd Bowles explained his curious clock management at the end of the first half, when he passed up a chance to have a meaningful possession. Bowles said QB Josh McCown was "pretty banged up" at the time and he just wanted to get to halftime. That's why he didn't use a timeout, opting to let Denver milk the clock before a FG. Bowles also said, "At the rate we were playing, we needed to go in and regroup."

So the Jets have dropped six of their last eight, their unofficial team MVP (Josh McCown) could be done for the year and now they have to go on the road again to face the Saints. Worried about the team getting demoralized? "No, not at all," Steve McLendon said. "Why would we worry about the team falling apart or anything like that?"

Jets C Wes Johnson said Josh McCown became the team leader on the first day of OTAs in the spring, when he organized a players-only practice. Now McCown (fractured left hand) could be lost for the final three games. Said Johnson: "I have all the confidence in the world in Bryce (Petty) ... I'm not worried about him at all. I'm actually excited for the opportunity he could get."
