Bruce Arians Retires, Bowles In At HC

Bowles was a horrific, emotionless, boring, coach who ruined our best chance at the playoffs in the last decade and subsequently gutted this team of all entertainment value for a number of years.  His teams were lifeless, boring, and ill prepared.

Any success Tampa has will be due to a talent rich team with a cheating QB who has a different set of rules than anyone else.

You’re probably right, and that’s how a good HC should look out for his right hand man in this type of situation.

And since Bowles isn’t a scumbag, I don’t expect him to get to the podium tomorrow and say that he’s retiring as HC of the TBB.

Those ‘16 Jets were maybe the most unlikable Jets team in franchise history. Leader of men Bowles totally lost the locker room. Should have been fired then. There’s no coming back from that as a coach.

Bowles deserves another shot, and I’m happy to see him get it with a good team.

Me too.... He was NOT the problem here per se. HE KNEW we had no talent, Mac was a bum and he towed the company line.

If he fails, oh well, I think he willbe at least, a good HC.

i think bowles will do well.  he started with a decent jet team but then couldn't win once it started to break down and mac failed to bring in good players.  arians was no spring chicken but you have to wonder if this the tampa management suddenly making a woke decision.

Bowles is a good man who got shafted by Maccagnan’s historic awfulness here.  Glad he’s getting this chance.

Yea, this covers how I look at it, if I’m being honest.

It was only a matter of time, though surprised Arians did this after the news of Brady returning.

I do wonder how much Brady will outweigh Bowles in situations.  Bowles once said that it was easier to pick up an onside kick than it was to convert a 4th and 7.  Maybe it was because his QB was Bryce Geno Fitzpatrick but I would certainly think that wont fly with Brady.  That said, they'll win 13 games either way and that's awesome for Todd Bowles.  I think he has some misguided decisions and principles as a HC but it was his first time in the position and I'd be curious to see how the presence of HOF QB changes his approach to the game.  While his mentors philosophy "is no risk it, no biscuit", his was 100%, just dont lose the game.

Arians didn't want to drop Bowles into a situation where he starts a rookie / journeyman QB after years of success and become the fall guy. Brady coming back makes for a far easier transition situation.

gotta believe he isnt happy he didnt get the job.  I would have thought he was a shoe in for it.  

Tampa wants the 2 3rd round draft picks when Leftwhich gets hired some where else.

Bowels is a great defensive coordinator. Will never be anything More.

 

 

 

Saleh was a mediocre defensive coordinator and so far has destroyed Zach, Mims and Becton.   So far as bad as Bowles was as the Jets HC, he was the better than both Gase and Saleh.

Let’s see how much Bowles likes Brady’s incompletions now! 😆

 

Bowles deserves an opportunity to work with a legit franchise and have a legit team. Happy for him. But my “**** Brady” default settings ultimately means that I’ll have to root against Bowles this year. Unfortunate.

Ban what. It’s a statement from the nfl. I didn’t say it. It is what it is. Truth

In your defense, here in Charlotte when Tepper came in, a whole change of management was made and I can tell you 1st hand as I know many people who work for the organization, that the NFL policy is being pushed down on the teams.  I am agnostic to it, just reporting facts.

I still think he ends up on SF next year (though Miami is probably also in play).

I seriously doubt at his age he want to move himself and family accross the country to play for a team ranked 3 in their division.  Tampa was a np brainer, they had a clear path to at least the playoffs and that would be at least three years earlier

Dan Campbell for the mf win !

he punted more than he should have but that’s likely because he didn’t trust his Qb

I would think that Leftwhich knew there was little chance that he would get the Tampa gig over Bowles.

Especially if Arians had any input

I don’t know if this is true, but definitely sounds plausible. And if it is true, I’m an even bigger fan of BA than I already was
