    Could Todd Bowles be fired in season ?

    Bullsh*t. First of all, nobody was hanging billboards/flying banners telling ownership to fire the head coach. The wrath of the fanbase was aimed squarely at John Idzik, not Rex Ryan. Second of all, there are plenty of reasons to NOT want the Jets' HC job, but fearing fans hanging up billboards after three years of being awful is NOT one of them.
  2. I get the impression that Todd Bowles, at some point, essentially realizes that the game is out of reach, and then goes into survival mode; eg, it's no longer about thriving (scoring points), it's about surviving (not losing by 30). Once he's admitted that a loss is inevitable, he's willing to punt it while down three scores w/ 4 minutes to go. I can cite many examples of this happening in previous years, the most egregious being last year's game against Denver, but that's neither here nor there. That's the only thing I can conclude. This is the same coach who went for it on 4th down as the second quarter was winding down. For him to go for it there, but not in 4th quarter when down by three scores, makes absolutely no sense. The only other theory that makes sense to me, besides the one I outlined above, is that Todd Bowles is actually a huge idiot who doesn't have any clue as to how to manage a team on game day. That's the most likely reason for his in-game management, but who knows...

    Quarter Pole Observations

    Yesterday was easy to watch for me. I left my heartbreak in Cleveland and will not be duped or tricked into rooting for this team until Todd Bowles is coaching some other team's secondary next year. Unfortunately, with Woody Johnson in the UK, it's now up to the fourth estate to do God's work; they need to make it an impossibility to bring Todd Bowles back for a fifth year...
  4. The Jets trading for Bell is the equivalent of buying a Ferrari to take it to the demolition derby. We should probably figure out long-term solutions at LT, LG, and C before we go trading for a $20mm/year running back, who won't have any holes to run through behind this rag-tag offensive line.
  5. Leveon Bell isn't getting traded for a 1st round pick. The Steelers would be lucky to net a third rounder at this point.

    This Game Broke Me

    This loss was awful, a season killer, and absolutely one of the worst losses for the Jets in the last 10 years. I'm done rooting for the Jets so long as Todd Bowles is the head coach. In fact, I will be rooting for as many losses as it takes to guarantee that his tenure of employment here comes to an end by the end of the year. Sometimes you need to hit rock bottom before you can get better.
  9. At least he didn't celebrate his touchdown by pretending to slit a police officer's throat, and laugh about it after the game.
  10. Year four of Maccagnan and Bowles “franchise building” and this team has no spine, no killer instinct, and no discipline. I’m done rooting for any team coached by Todd Bowles. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  11. I rooted for this team until today. I’ll actively be hoping they lose as many games as it takes to get Todd Bowles fired. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    It’s ok if Sam sucks tonight

    Sam Darnold is the least of my concerns. I'm much more worried about dumbass Buster Skrine chasing Jarvis Landry around all night in the slot...

    Jets Waive ArDarius Stewart

    Maccagnan has been nothing short of atrocious in four out of four phases of GM'ing: free agency, drafting, and re-signing his own players, and trading. On the free agency front, he's done nothing but apply short-term bandaids (one/two year stop-gaps) at key positions of need (Terrell Pryor, Kelvin Beachum, Morris Claiborne, Josh McCown, Matt Forte, etc.). On the trading front, he's done very much the same (Brandon Marshall for a 5th, Ryan Clady for a 5th, Ryan Fitzpatrick for a 7th, etc.) and then doubled-down on blowing draft picks by trading up for nobodies like Bryce Petty. In free agency, he blew through $100 million+ signing guys like Revis and Cromartie and then threw more money away at re-signing his washed-up veterans like Davis Harris. He re-upped Brian Winters at exactly the wrong time, overpaying for him, and then managed to somehow get nothing in return (a four year deal) for all that money he spent. Brian Winters will be ready to cash-in again as a free agent at 29 years old; if Maccagnan was going to overpay for Winters, fine - but overpay in years 1 and 2 and get a longer deal locked up so you can recognize savings in years 3-5). Don't sign him to a 4 year freaking deal, where the guy is going to be in the middle of his prime and expecting one last huge payday. Need I even bring up paying Wilkerson a boat-load of money while they watched Damon Harrison walk across the hall to the Giants? How about his drafting, which has been atrocious as well. Sorry, but drafting the lowest-risk players at the least-important positions with the #6, #6, and #21 picks is NOT a Super Bowl winning strategy. It's the sign of a spineless blowhard. Mike Maccagnan is a millionaire living in metro NYC and still drinks Dunkin' Donuts coffee every day. He can't "scout" coffee, it's no wonder that he can't scout football players.

    We're really missing Kearse

    I have a tough time with any post that refers to Jermaine Kearse as being "exceptional."
