  1. With Murray now deciding on football, there may be several teams interested in trading up for him. He may even be better than Haskins in the long run, with the right team and system
  2. I think we'll have a clearer picture of what potential moves we will be able to make after the combine is over, and after the pro days are over. For some reason, teams have changed their priorities after attending the combine and pro days. Then, we can see if there are any teams that are willing to make a deal with us for our #3 that makes sense.
  3. I'm not sure that he's a bust, at least not yet. With the lack of a legit pass rusher, I think that the defensive genius HC should have considered moving to a 4-3 defense, especially with the LB's he has. Williams may be much better suited to a 4-3. I guess we'll have to wait for the next HC and DC to see if he can realize his potential. I'd hate to see him go and become a perennial all pro with another organization. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. 4-12.... and that's assuming we beat Buffalo at home, otherwise, 3-13
  5. Some guys are just not cut out to be head coaches, but are very good coordinators...Norv Turner, excellent OC, mediocre HC, Rex Ryan, great DC, mediocre HC, Wade Phillips, same story. I think Bowles fits the same mold. He might make a decent DC for some team, but he just doesn't cut it as a HC.
  6. Overall he's been better than expected IMO. For someone his age, with only 8 games under his belt, he has established himself as the leader of the offense, it's obvious that his team believes in him. Remember Jared Goff's rookie year? Everyone was declaring him a bust. This kid certainly looks, at least so far like the real thing. He has shown poise, accuracy, the ability to extend plays, and importantly, the ability to shake off a bad throw, or an interception and bounce back. I'm excited to see what he'll be able to accomplish in the next 2-3 seasons if he can get the right pieces in place around him. If he can stay healthy, I think this kid can be an outstanding QB for years to come.
  7. A question for all us Jets fans...Assuming Bowles does get fired, I'm interested in who you would like to see as the next HC of the NYJ? Please, no crazy opinions of coaches who would not even be a remote possibility such as McVay, or Kyle Shanahan, but a realistic candidate whether it be a current coordinator with another franchise or a current college HC.
  8. I think Pepper Johnson tried to fight that very same fight for the defense...Bowles is a brick wall.
  9. Bates doesn't have the experience to take over as a head coach IMO. Rodgers is a mess, and if Bowles goes, he should join him. How about we get an offensive minded HC in here for a change? I like the job Greene is doing with the LB's, I'd like to see him stick around.
  10. Last year Bell had 321 carries and 85 receptions = 406 touches...For his career (5 seasons) He's had 1541 touches. He's also had a Lisfranc injury in Aug. '13, (missed the 1st 3 games of the season), a grade 1 concussion in Nov. '13 (cleared protocol-no games missed), a grade 1 hyperextended ACL in Dec.'14 (missed wild card playoff game), a grade 3 MCL tear in Nov.'15 (week 9-missed rest of the season) and an Inguinal Groin Sports Hernia in Jan. '17 as reported by Mike Tomlin, and never appeared on the injury report. He underwent surgery in mid March '17. Too much tread on the tires for the price, and not an immediate need. Pass rusher, O-line help, LB depth way more important.
  11. I wouldn't mind seeing them hire an offensive minded head coach paired with a top notch DC.
  12. For the past 2 seasons, I've been somewhat of a Bowles apologist however I can no longer take that view. I've seen nothing that can be considered as growth or improvement in him as a HC, and the lack of discipline this team displays week in and week out is almost beyond belief. Consistent mental mistakes (critical penalties, uncalled for penalties, blown assignments, etc.) are as common as they were when he first got here. Seeing his emotionless expression on the sidelines as his team implodes is as irritating as the nonsense on the field. Everything I see seems to validate Bart Scott's criticisms of Bowles and his DC. He seems unable to make any type of adjustments either in game or halftime, and once, just once, I'd like to see him pull a player aside and rip into him for a dumb penalty, or mistake. Fines don't work, Todd...sometimes benching for a quarter, or a series or a good old fashioned a$$ kicking on the sideline would send a message that enough is enough. Otherwise, I'm all for a new HC either next season, or if this team nosedives, then perhaps even in season.
  13. I really don't have anything critical to say about the interview considering the nature of all involved that he mentioned....They are all highly competitive individuals and type A personalities. The fact that Pepper Johnson played for, and worked for BB for so long validates his qualifications as far as I'm concerned, and I'd certainly defer to him as he knows far more about the game from a players and coaching standpoint than I do. Furthermore, his comments about the Jets coaches, at least for me, is hard to just dismiss. It just seems to have too much of a ring of truth to it, and anyone who doesn't think that the NFL "blackballs" so called undesirables, is either naive or plain ignorant.
