Can McCown help Petty “see the game?”

Injured Jets QB Josh McCown will be on the sidelines in New Orleans to help starter Bryce Petty.

Jets coach Todd Bowles was asked on Wednesday how McCown can help Petty.

“It can help him see the game,”Bowles said.

As for McCown’s presence helping Petty “see the game” – perhaps to a degree. When the Jets’ defense is on the field, McCown can talk to Petty and review the blue tablet. But so often, when you talk to young quarterbacks about reads, when they go back on the field, with pass rushers trying to hit them, defenses being disguised, their mind starts racing and much of info goes by the wayside.

So McCown can’t help him “see the game” while Petty is in the game. He can help him a little going over things on the bench. But since can’t can be his eyes and mind when he’s actually on the field, the impact of these skull sessions in minimal.
