    I know it's obviously way early and all that jazz, but I'm home sick tonight and we're going to need one of these threads eventually anyways.

    I really hope we can Bowles even though the shitty record won't really be his fault.

    Some options to consider:
    Darrell Bevell - Seahawks offensive coordinator since 2011
    Yardage ranks w/ Seahawks - 28th, 17th, 17th, 9th, 4th, 12th

    Mike Shula - Panthers offensive coordinator since 2013
    Yardage ranks w/ Panthers - 26th, 16th, 11th, 19th

    Todd Haley - Steelers offensive coordinator since 2012
    Yardage ranks w/ Steelers - 21st, 20th, 2nd, 3rd, 7th

    Steve Sarkisian - new Falcons offensive coordinator, formerly Alabama's coordinator

    David Shaw - Stanford head coach (65-17)

    Mike McCoy - Broncos offensive coordinator, Chargers head coach 2013-2016
    Yardage ranks w/ Chargers - 5th, 18th, 9th, 14th

    Scott Linehan - Cowboys offensive coordinator/former Lions offensive coordinator
    Yardage ranks w/ Lions & Cowboys - 26th, 17th, 5th, 3rd, 6th, 22nd, 5th

    I really would prefer to not get yet another first time head coach promoted from a coordinator spot. That's why I sort of like Haley, Linehan or McCoy on their second go around.

    McCoy's Chargers teams got killed with injuries and poorly timed turnovers, not to mention the franchise moving.

    Haley is a hot head and coming from my Steelers fan friend, he strongly disliked him in the beginning until he and Ben started gelling. Now he is extremely innovative with the way he makes sure he gets the ball in the hands of his best playmakers.

    Linehan was 11-21 as the Rams head coach. That franchise was pretty beat for talent though. He's also worked under Jason Garrett for the past two years and he's a damn good offensive mind, not to mention he aided in the development of Matthew Stafford.

    I'll add some more as I look deeper into it.

    Throw some names out there.

    I stilll like Brian Kelly.Hes had great success every where he's been..he knows QBs,knows talent & wont be pushed around by the NY media.I do worry about him having schiano/Petrino/Sabine syndrome wherein he doesn't have the personality to handle pro players but I'd be willing to take the chance.

    Of the more experienced candidates I guess I'd lead towards Haley.Hes a hot head sort of guy but he has strong ties here & knows offense. He's passionate & hates losing the same way this fan base does.Additionally if it ends up being Darnold at QB I'd like somebody in charge w familiarity w that type of skillset as he did w Big Ben.

    I don't think McCoy is built for this market..not a strong enough personality & just seems like more of a west coast guy. Though admittedly any offensive mind tied to the Chargers interests me bc they traditionally scout offensive skill as well as anyone.Clearly that's something the jets scouting dept needs some help w

    The Scott linehan era w the Rams was absolutely horrible.He lacks the personality & leadership to be head coach.Hes much better suited in an offensive coordinator/assistant head coach type of role,in my opinion.

    As I watch Todd Toilet Please Euthenize Me Benjamin Buford Blue PUNT THE BALL AWAY ON A 4TH AND 8 DOWN 9 PTS IN THE 4TH Q WITH 4 MIN TO GO.

    What human being that is more intelligent than a doorbknob can we get to coach this team in 2018

    Gruden, Cowher...anybody please who has an understanding of pro football. Please open up the coffers Woody. Bowles is so mentally challenged frankly I don't understand how he's not in assisted living. How does he dress himself? How is he even allowed to drive?

    What's your cut off before someone who hasn't been coaching for years shouldn't be a candidate.

    Why not list Parcells, Vermeill, and John Madden if you are going to list Gruden and Cowher?

    I don't care. If he's 80 and obese like parcells. I just want a head coach with an ounce of intelligence. Bowles is a moron. He is mentally disabled

    Lol to upgrade from bowles there is no cut off. Parcells at least understood putting players where they're best. That works forever. Parcells understood it all starts in the trenches. That works forever. It's ridiculous

    Chucky is young enough to potentially be an option. Maybe not a good one.

    Jets need an experienced coach with an offensive background and understands the value of being able to score as a prerequisite to winning by defense.

    What's your problem?

    We weren't supposed to be good (did you have high expectations?). And (not shocked) we're not.
    Keep your expectations low this season, you'll live longer.

    On to Oakland

    No but you would like to see improvement from your coach in year 3. What's the point of building this team from scratch if your leadership doesn't know scratch?

    Because we keep hiring terrible head coaches.

    I'm all for letting a coach weather the storm through a shitty year. But not when in year 3 he still can't do basic math in figuring out when to go for one or two point conversions.

    Todd Haley is overdue to get another shot as a HC.

    Don't see a realistic shot at him but I would love Josh McDaniels. We need an innovative offensive mind.

    I didn't get to see the game..tons of errands getting ready for a close friend's wedding followed by possible CAT duty in FL(P&C insurance)

    I was able to pay close attention to the game thread..for those still defending Bowles..

    In year 3..when exactly does the "Good" Todd Bowles kick in?We certainly haven't seen anything beyond a flash in the pan thus far

    But every year is a shitty year, it's like we're stuck in some horrible chicken or the egg scenario.
