    of course he has overwhelming support from the players. He doesn't hold them accountable. Remember that this season as you watch Buster Skrine get burned over and over and Sharon Lee misread play after play

    Could this also be a side effect of CJ backing his players in the revolt? I think it's a bit of both honestly.

    I'm not even a huge Bowles guy, I just don't hate him, so I don't care enough to get into semantics. But: I do agree Skrine is horrendous and needs to be gone the second Nickerson proves he can handle the duties, I disagree that Darren Lee misreads play after play... he progressed nicely last year and I think he'll be solid this year.

    Could be, I'm just basing it off Schefter's tweet where he said he chose the Jets over the Niners because he wanted to play for Bowles.

    I remember seeing this kid ball out on the Cowboys. Bowles likes to deploy 3 safety looks anyway, so don't be surprised if you see Wilcox on the field more often than not.

    Makes total sense now. "A blow to depth" may be a stretch, but it's certainly a "hit".

    I have to say I've always thought the man looks like he'd be a really devious little weasel. I kind of feel bad for thinking it, but there it is.

    No accountability>>>>>>More losing Seasons

    Its baffling that a few posters use Bowles popularity among the players as a yardstick for his Success

    Someone will post that in Philly Pederson its not much of a disciplinarian and they won a SB..

    But take a look at the winners/Playoff teams last Season and you can spot a trend: Jax with Coughlin/Marrone dont fool around; Vikings Zimmer/Schermer are tough managers...and of course we know about the multi SB hated Pats with Bellichek that "its not fun to play there..bwaaah"

    3 years of TB management HAS NOT worked and prob never will

    The Question is with all the talent that is out there if U owned the team knowing that Belly was in your division would you have hired Bowles instead of say the Eagle Or Ram HC :mad:

    10-6 fucked over for the play offs by Fitz choking in the final game.
    5-11 fucked over by Fitz stinking and Marshalls butter hands
    5-11 REBUILDING did you not catch that last one mate ?


    REBUILDING

    You are not getting winning seasons while you rebuild, how is that not hard to understand, you can't keep smacking Bowles around the head for last seasons losing season, fuck far too many of us were disappointed we won 5 anyway, it cost us a pile of 2nds to rectify that error.

    The question is, did they give him a new contract ?

    If they did then they choose to keep him as they obviously have faith or they see the players have faith in him and believe he is good enough to do something.

    I wasn't so keen on him myself but after seeing the players give their all last season despite me wanting 0-16 season, I have decided to back Bowles and see how it goes moving forward, a lot of you should be pleased as it is no doubt a huge death knell for him as our HC lol

    No a smart owner would have asked himself the question before hiring Bowles can Bowles mentally compete with Belly & IMHO that answer is huge big fat NO so he should not have been hired 3 seasons back then Chris made mistake #2 by extending him again IMHO:mad:

    So what did you not like on Bowles’ resume 3 years ago that you did not want him as the coach?
    I’m fact, go ahead and dig up your posts from when we were in the interview phase stating why you did not like Bowles.
