Give Mac an extension for signing Trumaine.

Give Bowles an extension for teaching team discipline.

In fairness NOBODY could of predicted this would happen with Johnson.  I’m not trying to defend Macc but I try to be fair. He was a top corner on the market and as far as we know didn’t have these issues beforehand

Why didn’t his previous team want him?   It’s not like they didn’t have the money.

Saw an interesting slant from Jason_OTC that the Jets may be trying to position themselves to be able to void some of his guarantees. Would assume based on some sort of breach of contract, but he didn't expand much.

This behavior will stop when we get a real coach.  Bowles is a joke.

Tony Dungy would change all this.

Let’s hope the next coach gets the best out of him and gets him back in track. That really is the best thing to hope for at this point.

It’s Todd Bowles’ fault that a 28-year-old man didn’t want to show up to work. Most definitely. 

No it's Maccs.

Which one are you talking about?  Revis, mowil, tru, shel rich, roberts?

So many to chose from.

If it is not apparent to you that bowles is a soft touch that players walk all over i am not sure what to say.  He is the leader, the coach, the tone setter.

Zero discipline re players, zero discipline re penalties.

Grown adults definitely need mucho discipline. Bowles should have considered bringing back spankings and/or no Super Nintendo for a week.

You have to give Bowles some credit for this. He’s disciplining players on the way out and could have let this slide.

Missing practice is serious. I would hope there is something in the cba or his contract that allows the jets to fine him or take other extra measures 

Tru had been slacking all year. This is just a whimper of an ending 

I read it as missing the meeting which is prior to practice and showing up to practice but late. So for example if meeting are 8 am and practice starts at 9 am. He probably showed up 9:30.

Or it wasn't his decision, Or he has been told he is gone so he doesn't care about the win....

Pretty sure there were lots and lots of people on here saying how bad the signing was

There were never any effort or disciplinary issues with this former all pro and perennial pro bowl player until he started playing under Bowles and Rogers.  That's a fact.

Good time to remind everyone that:

1. Every single time Mike Maccagnan has had more than five dollars to spend, it’s turned into an abject pants-sh*tting disaster

2. The absolute dumbest people in the universe believe that Mike Maccagnan’s access to a large amount of money this offseason is one of the Jets’ major assets 

ALL OF THIS. The man must go along with Todd Bowles. The one regret I will have with seeing Bowles go is that I won't be able to use this anymore:

That's actually not a fact. Clearly you lack discipline.

There was a report that the Jets may be trying to use this as a loop hole to get out of the remaining guaranteed money in his contract. Hopefully they can figure out a way to do it.

Players union would be all over this. Don’t see it.

There needs to be a “turd rule” for players that cash in and clearly dog it and not be professionals anymore.

Which is funny because it’s the same guy who signed fat revis, gilchrist, and cromartie. 

Give this man an extension!

bro sheldon richardson and darrelle revis didn't have any issues ever with anything before bowles got his filthy hands on them and that is a scientific fact

Stop it already! He played six really ok quarters of football this season! What more you want? 

Six more than Revis 2.0

This may be why GB and CLE were smart to can their HC mid-season.  Players aren't going to fight for a dead-coach-walking.  But a new guy with everything on the line, they might go the extra yard for.  But the Johnsons are just too polite to hurt Todd's feelings.  Yay us.

Can’t blame Bowles, coach has no responsibility to keep players motivated, in check, in the right place, or really anything other than looking like a fine piece of ass on the sideline

No idea what the CBA says, but they should move to void his contract.

The players love Todd*, respect Todd*, play hard for Todd*, play 15 yards off the ball for Todd*... Say the players who enjoy a lack of accountability under Todd*.

and they'll all walk through walls.  blocking, tackling, playing in position, catching the ball, etc aren't the same.  the bottom line is bowles has not yet been able to get the vets to play 100% or even 80%.  johnson knows bowles is gone as does kearse so they just don't care much about what bowles says.
