"Especially in this league where the quarterback drives the ship, I don't know if you're ever ready to handle losing your starting quarterback," McCown said. "But I think the structure is in place and the emphasis has been put on individuals to do their job and do their part. If we continue to get that, and we felt like we got that yesterday, it allows the quarterback to step in there, whether it's Jay or myself, to function and play, because guys are going to be coached to be where they are supposed to be and do what they're supposed to do."
"Jay got hurt and I served my team by playing and doing what I could to help us win a ballgame, and then play effective football when I was in there," McCown said. "When he's healthy, he comes back and he's the starter and that's how it goes. That's how we operate."
