McCown was widely viewed as simply a place holder, a veteran who would bridge the gap until the next franchise quarterback stepped up and took his spot under center. But a funny thing happened along the way: The 38-year-old McCown has had the best season of his 15-year career, established himself as an emotional leader. Coach Todd Bowles reiterated on Wednesday, Dec. 6, that McCown will be New York's starter for the final four games of the regular season.
