Todd Bowles Says Some Things


Recommended Posts

It's at least encouraging that he's contemplating not only not starting McCown, but maybe actually starting a rookie. 

Even a rookie can run that  the vaunted Bowles run up the gut/run up the gut/3rd and 8 chuck and duck offense. Would be nice if this moron with oodles of resources spread across his beloved defense could at least make the unit marginally competent.

Funny how the coach said all the things you pretty much expect a coach to say this time of year but will get criticized anyway just because people hate him. lol The man cant win this crowd over no mat

"they traded up to No. 3 not with one player in mind but with 6-7 they believe they’ll have a chance at."   Ug, so why not stay pat at 6?

Anything said at this point about the draft should simply be ignored.  He knows, we know, everyone knows the Jets traded up with 3 QB's in mind - nothing more, nothing less.

I would HOPE he would have to be open minded.

100% chance. Mac too. 2 more years at least. 

Actually I was thinking of this last nite. I can see Macc staying and Todd on the unemployment line if we doesn't go at least .500.

Three straight years of getting worse as a coach and not livingup to the defensive genius billing has a way of weighing on fans. I’d give it a 25% chance he is coaching here next season. 

Year 1 featured a top 5-6 defense:

Oh and the first Jets offense in the top half of the league in nearly 15 years...The first top 10 passing offense in nearly 15 years....

Here I am starting to feel good about how good a job Mac has done so far this off season. Chris Johnson saying all the right things. 

And then Bowles speaks, and I’m reminded why we’re where we are in the first place. It’s quite scary. Now in my head I’m think it’s Darnold, Rosen then Chubb. And walk away with no QB. 

What did he say that makes you feel that way?

Eh just the overall tone of how he gives his answers, the 6-7 players thing, can't find a way to use honey badger. I feel like he can do better with speaking/showing his personality to give Jets fans a bit more confidence that he's the right man for the job.

I'd give it a 25% chance he is coaching here by Week 5.

He's a placeholder.  We need to build a roster that's decent enough to attract a top quality HC candidate.  Hopefully someone with prior experience.  The Jets rookie HC carousel is just as bad as the lack of a franchise QB the past 30 years.

Honestly, I dont think anything he says or does to the public will sway opinion

There was a brief window where I thought signing Matheiu was a thing. Then I learned he had blown out both his knee, played a league high # of snaps or something, and remembered that this is the NFL. He's a better 2018 injury candidate than some superstar they missed out on.

Better yet, why not tell everyone who it is they want?  Can't imagine that could backfire. Lol

One, he's not the OC.  Two, that's the offense you think you saw last season?

He didnt want to sign the Honey Badgers because he couldnt think of a way to use him...

I take it as "I don't know how I would use him with our roster".

I mean, why doesn't Todd Bowles just tell everyone exactly which player they want the most, right? Every other team's GM/Head Coach tells the media their exact game plans, why don't the Jets????

From Schefters podcast I thought Bowles' comments were kind of interesting. More OVER ANALYZING....

http://www.espn.com/espnradio/play?id=22924538

About the trade up: "We knew there were gonna be a lot of people moving up, so, there was a chance if we stayed where we were we'd be out of the QB business....or any other player. Chubb or Barkley."

How do you feel about this QB class? "It's talented top to bottom. it's not just about the QBs. the RB class is talented. You have a great defense end sitting right there at 2. Regardless of what we do we're gonna pick a good football player."

you may be right but you proved my point...your statement has nothing to do with what he says and if there is a problem with his statement.

Yeah that is a little bit different. Sounds like Macc drafted two safeties last year and those guys are going to start. So he went somewhere else so he could be more than a nickel corner.

Oh boy.  Remember that little Chubb skit I played out???

FWIW - i was going off this...he didnt say it exactly this way but it was a read between the lines thingy.

He also said it would have been hard to sign the Honey Badger because he wanted to start and he couldn’t figure out a way to use him.

Fire Todd Bowles into the sun.

So he basically said they moved up because they didn't want to get shut out of the QBs and then tried to cloud the issue by talking about RB and defensive talent.  There's no chance we didn't move up to get one of our to 3 QBs

lol. But why would he say "sitting right there at 2"?????? 

Because the Giants are taking Chubb or because he's 2 on their board? HMMMMMMMMM
