I just found the winning entry in this thread.

Absolution for NY MICK.  He was the ONLY one who had it right!  Everyone ripped him to shreds.  He stood his ground.  Now, no "told you so's '.   Gotta get some recognition for all that, don't you thi

Good god, why the **** would you resurrect this thread now? I just about sh*t myself to death when I scrolled down and saw the thread title.

And there it is: RT @JosinaAnderson: I just got a text from Todd Bowles, "Im taking the Jets job."

 

I haven't been this happy about a coach we've hired, since Parcells.

 

Bowles might have put forth the best individual effort by any coach, at any level, in 2014. I also read somewhere earlier that he was drafted by Casserly and worked as a personnel guy for Wolf, so his resume has more than just coaching on it - and he's got ties to both of our consultants.

You would hope that MacCags had influence in this decision...   I also would hope that the discussion of coordinators came up before pulling the trigger...

 

I think both concerns you are bringing up are table stakes in HC interviews.

This is the jewel in the rough.  I felt strong;y from the get go that he was the best candidate ( although I was originally hoping for an offensive guy) . I'm legitimately excited about this hire.

So all the happy people, tell me why this is a great move.

 

(Not saying it isn't, but I'd like to know in more detail why it is.)

 

Everything I've posted about him today... that. 

 

Honestly, like I just said above - he's got the resume, he's got the reco's, and he's coming fresh off of what I think was the best individual coaching effort of 2014. He's not a re-tread, so there's an element of not knowing, but by all indications he's got the makeup of a guy that can do the WHOLE job.

This says it all.

Last season, Bowles' defense ranked sixth in the NFL in yards allowed per game, and first against the run, while allowing the fewest yards in team history for a 16-game season (1,351). This past season, the Cardinals were 24th in yards allowed per game and 13th in rushing yards allowed, but still made a quite an impact on a playoff team. Bowles’ crew boasted the league’s fifth-best scoring defense (18.7 ppg.) and third-best red-zone percentage (43.9 percent). 

Bowles is known for his aggressive approach. 

"Oh yeah, Coach Bowles is a very aggressive guy," Johnson said. "He loves the fact that he has guys on the back end that he can trust in certain situations. I think every game we were in this year that was close and we were on the field to win the game, it was a zero blitz. It got to the point that we’d be laughing on the field, because the middle linebacker would be waiting on the call and we’d be like, 'What you waiting on the call for? We know what it’s going to be. Just go ahead and make it. Just go ahead and get lined up.' 

"He’s very aggressive, but at the same time, he knows how to mix it up because teams have learned that he’s a very aggressive guy. He’s just very smart about how he brings his pressures." 

Johnson called Bowles a "players' coach" and put a little context behind the label. He recalled getting burned by Eagles receiver Jordan Matthews on a third-and-12 play for 23 yards back in Week 8. 

"We were in zero coverage and I let Matthews beat me across my face," Johnson explained. "I came to the sideline and the DBs coach was out of his mind going crazy. Then Coach Bowles comes up to me and says, 'Hey man, I saw him give you the stick for the outside move. If he beat you on the out, that’s my fault. I put you in a position to play it from inside-out. Just don’t bite on the outside move.' And I was like, 'OK, Coach, I got you.' 

"He tells me he made the call and put me in that position. You’ve got to respect that." 

That’s not to say Bowles goes around absorbing blame for every misstep. 

"It’s not like he’s going to let you slide," Johnson said. "He’s definitely going to let you know when you’ve done something wrong. I think the one thing we respect most is that he treats everyone the same. Whether you’re an All-Pro or a rookie, when we came in and watched film, he didn’t hold back in saying something to the All-Pro. 

"He’s straight-forward and honest. And he's been able to take the personnel that he has and know how to put them in positions to exercise their strengths. If you can’t do something, he’s not going to call on you to do it. He’s really good at putting schemes together to make his guys successful. He's definitely a great coach."
