Nickel Package: Should Todd Bowles be in the discussion for COY ?

Field Yates and Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith discuss whether or not Todd Bowles should be in discussion for the Coach of the Year award, given how the Jets have performed compared to expectations.

This is even worse than I expected.  I fully excepted the talking heads that don't actually watch this team to line up to praise this guy if we won more than 3 games but it will go to a whole new level.

It is going to be such a terrible mistake when the Jets give the guy and extension in the off season.

I posted the COY possibility in another thread to rave reviews.  Normally COY is given to a HC whose team has a very good record (of course they have a lot of talent also). If the criteria were solely preseason expectation vs actual results, Bowles would be in the running.

I think there is an inherent problem with giving the award to a coach of a sub-500 team.  Don't know why, but it just feels mediocre.

If he gets to 8-8, he should definitely be in the serious running for the award.

On another note, it would be disappointing if the OPOY and DPOY are both players picked after the Jets picked.

still too early, if we make the playoffs I think so but there are some other franchises that have been struggling that have real playoff chances like in Buffalo and Jacksonville and if either of those teams made it their HCs would get it.

Has anyone ever got that award and was fired the same season? Asking for a friend .

Well there was Marty Schottenheimer who was fired after a 14-2 season.

Joe Girardi might be interested in this discussion as well.

Oh and if this was actually a serious question....No.

 

Pederson (PHI) and McVay (LAR) have to be the top dogs right now.  Doubt anyone else has even a remote shot.  The Jets would have to finish with at least a 5-2 run to even put Bowles in the running IMO.  Good luck to him.

Funny "Nickel" is in the thread title ... And one of Bowles egregious mistakes is trotting the $h*tbag Skrine out on the field series after series 🤓😵💩

If we finish with a winning record or make the playoffs he'll be a strong candidate, considering where pre-season expectations were.

Right now I'd say Doug Pederson (overall performance) and Sean McVay (exceeding expectations) are far stronger candidates though.

The Jets have won 4 bum fights, and right now are under .500 in a parity-wild NFL. What kind of drugs does one ingest to suggest this idiocy? 

What a complete load of crap. Bowles is a middling coach on his best day.

Should Rosie O'Donnell be in contention for the SI swimsuit cover? Should Betty White corner the green banana market?  Should Alec Baldwin enter a vow of silence monastery?

Bowles has as much chance of winning coach of the year as does Mohammed Wilkerson winning defensive player of the year.

Except no. His chances of COY dwarf Mo's chances of DPOY. 

Jets' expectations, based on the roster handed to the coach = 4 wins max

Mo's expectations, based on the massive contract awarded by our GM = pro bowl, if not first team all-pro (especially with Watt breaking his leg a month into the season).

+1

I should ban you for foisting upon this board the visual of Rosie O in a swimsuit, though, effing a-hole that you are.

If the Jets get to six wins, should they get the Super Bowl trophy? Next, on ESPN.

Steven A. Smith and Max Kellerman's next episode of "that show on at the gym because you can't change the channel that nobody really watches".

We have the same record as Atlanta that should tell you all you need to know and our roster is.a joke on the offensive side of the ball. 

So luagh at Bowles all you want but the reality is he is better than many of the clowns on the sideline.
