Whoever the Jets choose as Head Coach

Recommended Posts

They almost did that Sunday.  They still reined him in with the 15 point lead, like they had a defense that could protect it.  The gloves came off again when they went behind.  Pathetic.  If they had let him throw a few of those TE passes earlier it wouldd  never have come to that.  Instead it was all sideline comebacks and stuff like that.  So predictable

If they keep Bowles the entire fan base will go ballistic. I do not see any way they keep him. Having said that, I agree 100% with the OP. Tell me one person who did not know we were toast losing the coin toss in OT. That is what we want Sam to be. A QB who gets the ball in OT and finishes the game right there.

Playing meaningless games in December and winning them or playing well will not save Todd Bowles he has been a piss poor HC here for 4 years.

The 1st and 20 after the fake punt is what drove me crazy.  Two runs between the tackles and a screen pass on 3rd and 19.  They needed to try to pick up some yardage on 1st down.  Instead they sent Mcguire between the tackles for -3.   And then another run on 2nd and 23.  Let Sam try to throw downfield and win the game.  The first down is more important than the clock at that point.  Even on the 3rd down play call, how about we throw one deep and maybe get a defensive holding or DPI call -- we know the refs were throwing flags all night.  Maybe a guy makes a play or we get a call.  But no, we turn it over to a future hall of famer and expect or defense to come up with a big stop with the game on the line; something they have not been able to do in years.

They couldn't stop Marcus Mariotta, lol, and Bowles had them run plays to run the clock? Rogers was slicing & dicing us, everyone knew if Rogers had the ball the Jets were dead meat. I have to say, I knew when they won the coin flip it was over and I was OK with it. 

Sam played very well, we lost, better pick, more dirt shoveled on Bowles grave.

Theres two sides to this though.  One thing Darnold needs to learn is that when he buys time in the pocket (due to his ridiculous pocket presences and athletic ability) that there will be plays to be made down the field, BUT there will also be check downs that will result in big plays as the secondary is further down the field.

Its great to take chances down the field, and he will only get better and better at that, but hitting your RB and taking what the defense gives you is also a good play and how you win games

Bowles is offense averse, it's in his DNA. He's a big chicken, this idea that we can't trust the QB to win a game but he's comfortable putting Clairborne 1 on 1 with Adams? Lol.

The way Sam was playing, he was better off going for EVERY 4th & short, than putting his defense on the field. It didn't matter where Rogers started, could have been the 1 yard line, the Jets defense was not going to make a stop if Rogers had 4 downs. 

He's Jeff Fisher cloaked in darker skin. I'm happy with Matt Campbell, Zac Taylor at OC, we need young guys in here that will encourage Darnold, fill him to the brim with knowledge on offense, and build on that offensive scheme where every week a new wrinkle is added. Could you imagine having Bell I the backfield (I've mentioned I'd rather get 2 players for one but I won't cry if they sign him), we somehow land Deebo Samuel at the top of the 3rd? 

I want to see an offense with these Jet sweeps and RPOs. Hell, Cannon would be a candidate for Jet sweeps with his speed, you can't just let him get to the edge on you. A good OC could turn this young man into an unstoppable force surrounded by playmakers. A smart, accurate QB that can also throw darts on the run from right or left is a PITA to a defense. There has to be coaches out there seeing film of Darnold & salivating. 

Cannon is crazy fast.  Receiver potential

2nd and long is the worst down for the Jet offense.

NO!  We need to be on the leading edge of things.  Bowles said earlier this year that the league is cyclical and it will be a run first league in 10 years.  We MUST get a head start and start running on 1st and 2nd down every time.  We will be the new visionaries.

Ten Years. huh.  "Start" running on 1st and 2nd down?  Got the market cornered on that one.  Better lock up Bates with a long extension before someone swoops in and scoops him up.  I think Bowels said "this league is cynical"

Funny how McVay gets so much love for a coach who hasnt won a d@mn thing.....

So far while totally exciting to watch, these high powered offenses havnet done much more than boost the ratings.  (lately)

I wonder how many times we have run on first down this year. 80 percent of the time? 85 percent?

Sam seems to be picking up the play-action thing.  I see more throwing early int he future.  With a different coaching staff, of course.

Idiotic statement, meant to be contrarian to what the whole world sees, and to make himself appear to be saying something smart and profound. The NFL is a business first and it’s customers, mostly, love watching Offense...hence all the rule changes that give a huge bias TO Offenses throughout the league.

The Jets might finally have gotten the Memo if they finally pick an HC with an Offense background.

Bowles can't leave soon enough.  He hampers our offense because he is so conservative.  You have to play like you are behind.

Surprisingly we are right about 50%.  Which is just about league average.  We are just not as effective, run or pass.  We average about 5 yards gained on first down.  League average is closer to 7.
