With many options on the table at the quarterback position for the New York Jets, we sort out the real players and the tempting posers.

Forget about the broken record for a moment. The ongoing discussion surrounding a franchise quarterback and the New York Jets is far more excruciating than the oft-used, old-school phrase uttered by everybody you know.

Whether the time was the late 1970s or the 1983 NFL Draft with many options available, or now, the 2017 offseason, these Jets and their quest to find that firm face of the franchise whose fingers become far too acquainted with the center’s backside is everlasting.

Finding the next Joe Namath is all that matters, especially considering this day and age of football that sees the pigskin fly through the air more frequently than ever.

This spot of the internet will break down each QB face the New York Jets are linked to this offseason. It can be a draft prospect, a rumored trade piece, a free agent or, even, a current quarterback on the roster.


First, we begin with the current New York Jets and key you in on whether they’re a “player” or a “poser.”
