New York Jets turning to a surprising option at Quarterback

It has been quite the week for San Francisco Giants Pitcher Madison Bumgarner, he led the Giants to World Series victory and now has a new job lined up?

The New York Jets are 1-7 this season and currently enduring a crippling seven game losing streak and there is one question hanging over Head Coach Rex Ryan's head.

The question that has been around since the start of the season, who should be the Jets starting Quarterback? Geno Smith or Michael Vick?

The Jets have leant on Smith all season and needless to say, he has not delivered, but now it looks like the NFL veteran Vick is set to take control.

In his press conference after Thursday's training session, the Jets Coach was maintaining his sense of humour by making a strange selection.


When asked about the Quarterback position, Ryan joked about the San Francisco Pitcher, claiming he could be starting in green and white this weekend.

"All right, we're gonna go with that Bumgarner guy, I think,'' - Rex Ryan

Bumgarner arguably won the Giants the World Series during game seven against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night.

Entering the game in the fifth inning, he pitched a no-hitter to secure a very narrow game and series win for the Giants.

Bumgarner was crowned the World Series MVP and has been hailed for his performance in game seven, so could he actually teach the Jets a few things?

The path to eight

With the Jets currently on a joint NFL high seven game losing streak, their fans are desperate for the win this weekend.

It won't come easy however as they face a road trip to the city whose sporting hopes now lies on their NFL team and the Kansas City Chiefs aren't easy to beat.

The Chiefs already hold dominant victories over two of New York's AFC East rivals this season following a big 41-14 win over the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins crushing 34-15 loss in Kansas City.

Should the Oakland Raiders pick up their first win of the season this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks - no matter how unlikely, they will leave the Jets atop of the biggest losing streak in the NFL list.

That is of course unless the Jets can pull something in Kansas City, if they can't it doesn't get much easier for them as in the coming weeks they face the Pittsburgh Steelers and a road trip to the Buffalo Bills.
