    Actually today is day 1 towards 50 years when the NYJs last won a SB. IMHO Bowels is a cellar dwelling HC like all the NYJ HC have been including BP since Weeb. By extending Bowles they have told the STHERs & fans that we continue to be garbage & a bottom of the barrel team for at least the next 2 years :mad:

    Actually, I look at it this way. Its year 1 of our run at the Cubs' record of futility.(too bad we don't have any goats). It should be noted that the Cubs did indeed win a WS. That being said, the odds are decent that between now and 2068, we'll be in a SB. Can't Wait!! (no, really I can't wait that long...)

    I don’t see it in Bowles. He is a good leader. Fine but his in game adjustments are bad. His situational football awareness isn’t there and he is a scared chicken during games who prefers not going for 4th downs when the game is on the line. I can’t imagine him coaching in the Superbowl. He will look like a deer in the headlights.

    The sooner we part ways with Bowles the better.

    By keeping Mac and Bowles for a 4th year it makes the Jets attractive to potential candidates next year should we still suck. Johnson & Johnson gives you 4 years no matter how much the fans moan and groan. Billboards don't work anymore.

    He seems outmatched in almost every game he coaches. He's just not head coach material.

    Only two coaches out of 37 who didn't make the p.o. their first three years even made it to the SB, and none have ever won it. THAT is what tells me that Bowles needs to go. And it also reinforces my belief that the Johnsons are completely clueless about what makes a winning football team. The only "stability" that's worth anything is sticking with those HCs who consistently win. Consistency for consistency's sake is a road map for mediocrity at best. A good manager/owner is able to weigh the odds of the moves he wants to make, and deciding to ignore (if he was even aware of this before which I find doubtful) these odds proves Woody and Chris to be ignorant. And even if there WAS a HC who could buck these odds and win a SB, does anyone believe Todd Bowles is that guy? Extending him (and Macc) simply delays the inevitable and further delays progress towards a championship.

    I'm not even sure he's DC material. He seems like a position coach at best.

    The way he has established himself as the boss in the locker room getting rid of locker room headaches is great, he has let everyone know that he is calling the shots proven by having had it with Wilkerson.
    Unfortunately he has maxed out his worth off the field, during a game he has shown nothing, game adjustments, clock management, non stop penalties, timeouts, name it and there is nothing about coaching talent on the field.
    Coaches during a game to be happy If they are close at the end, we’ve had way too many coaches in the last 40 years coaching this way.
    Can he do it, I doubt it.

    From what I understand UPS delivered a plain brown package to the Bowles residence in NJ recently.

    A neighbor spotted Todd opening it and it was "Football Coaching for Dummies"

    So of course there's hope..

    Watching the tail end of the Bird Bowl (Falcons vs. Eagles), and Atlanta just went for it 4th and 6 from their 40 with 3 minutes and change left. That is something I don't Bowles would ever do. As it turns out they made it, but even if they didn't it was the right call. That's the difference between a championship-level coach and a pretender.

    Watching the same game and had the same thought. Even more amazing is that the Berds still have 2 TO's with 79 seconds left deep in Iggle territory.

    I was watching the Eagles/Falcons game today, and when that first down got overturned leaving 4th and 6 at midfield with under 3 minutes left we all know he would have punted the game away right there.

    Todd’s two biggest fears are:

    #1 Going for in on 4th down
    #2 Being aggressive to try to get points before the half

    #1 is something that anybody would fear given the Jets offensive personnel at this point.
    #2 is the consensus among NFL head coaches in this era. Nobody tries to go down the field for a quick strike unless they have a very strong offense *and* they've had trouble scoring points in the 1st half in the game in question.

    That's exactly what I was thinking at that point.

    Even with their offensive problems, what would they have had to lose? That's the question I would like Bowles to answer because apparently he's more afraid of that answer than he is of losing the game.

    When Tony Romo was broadcasting the Pats game he was constantly talking Bowles up. I can help but shake the idea was he thought we were pathetic and he had to find some positive thing to take from the game.
