Perhaps he can serve as a bridge for the Cardinals, Giants or Broncos' next quarterback.It's a shame that Mc Cown has been knocked out for the season, but this is a good thing for the Jets. They need to begin losing to be able to draft the best player possible, and starting either Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg will accomplish that.

That'll impact Pittsburgh's ability to beat the other Super Bowl contenders in the AFC. Follow me @walterfootball for more hiring/signing grades and updates.

I received some requests to do this Disaster Grade, as well as one for Riley Reiff. Josh Mc Cown played well beyond expectations this season, throwing 18 touchdowns compared to nine interceptions.

This is a new feature where I'll list Disaster Ratings (one being the least problematic, to 10 being code red) for NFL teams involving offseason retirements and injuries.

With some of the recent players going down or calling it quits, I thought it would be nice to have a new section where I can discuss and rate everything. The Vikings collapsed following their 5-0 start last year because of major offensive line issues.

Shazier is the quarterback of Pittsburgh's defense, and when he got hurt, it was obvious the Steelers weren't the same defensively.

Players were in the wrong places, and there were numerous blown assignments.

If there's any consolation, Wentz suffered no other damage, so there won't be complications.

Also, Wentz is also an extremely hard worker, so if there's anyone who can make it back in nine months, it's him. Follow me @walterfootball for more hiring/signing grades and updates.

The Steelers won't need Brown for the final two regular-season games, as they get to battle the Texans and Browns.
