The debate over if McCown is an upgrade from Fitz is equivalent to arguing which pile of fecal matter is less pungent. Culling through the various tweets since the signing, I found this one from Chris Towers to fit my viewpoint. Josh McCown is 2-20 with 26 fumbles and 24 interceptions since that fluke half-season when Alston and Marshall carried him to relevance. McCown has a worse career QB ranking and many of the stats are equally horrible for both QBs. I am not sure a Cleveland castoff is anything more than a cheap placeholder until the Jets can tank themselves into a decent draft position in 2018.
