New York Jets Regime Change – Who Is Up Next?

Joe Caporoso reviews potential GM and HC candidates for the New York Jets in 2019 and also discusses Interim HC options for the rest of this season

The New York Jets are likely to fire Todd Bowles immediately after the season.

Here is a run down of prospective replacements for both and a few thoughts on potentially putting an Interim Head Coach in for the remaining games in 2018 and why it isn’t likely to happen.

“Play Like A Jet” presents episode #16 of your weekly NY Jets debate show “What’s Your Point?” with Dalbin Osorio  vs Greg Armstrong. This week the guys do battle on four of the hottest topics surrounding the New York Jets immediately following the team’s 41-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills at Metlife Stadium:

  1. Would firing Todd Bowles in-season really fix anything right now or would it just be something done to appease the fanbase?
  2. What has been Todd Bowles’ signature moment of incompetence as Jets head coach?
  3. Todd Bowles has done a poor job but is he being scapegoated for problems that go beyond just him?
  4.  If Bowles is fired, should GM Mike Maccagnan be next?

Initial Reaction – Rotting Garbage, Jets House Of Cards Fully Collapses Versus Buffalo

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 41-10 regime ending loss to the Buffalo Bills

The New York Jets laid down to die in MetLife Stadium this afternoon, as Matt Barkley (!) and the Buffalo Bills, who had managed 20 points over the past 3 weeks, ran it up in a 41-10 victory. Any shreds of delusion around this failed Jets regime, that is now 23-35 over 58 games, have firmly been put to bed. The Jets are no better than they were 4 years ago when they laid down to die against the Buffalo in Detroit and received a similar whooping. The myth is over, no matter how much media posturing continues to take place.

2018 NFL Best Bets Against the Spread – Week Ten

Jake Benaquisto with his week 10 NFL Best Bets…

If I ever bet on Todd Bowles and the Jets in any way again this season, please come to my house and punch me in the forehead. Despite that horrific game, I still managed to go 3-2 last week. Before I give my picks, here are a few thoughts on the NFL as we go into week 10. 

  1. It’s no guarantee, but if the Steelers ever get back Le’Veon Bell, I think they’re the favorites to win the AFC. That offense was an absolute machine against the Panthers on Thursday. 
  2. I’ve already reached the point of the season where I’m just rooting for the Jets to lose. As sad as it is, I don’t want there to be any reason for this front office and coaching staff to return. The Darnold injury is frustrating and I’ll root for him when he comes back, but wins do absolutely nothing for this team. It’s time to clean house and build a contender around your franchise QB.

New York Jets – Week 9 Secondary Breakdown

Ben DiNapoli with his breakdown of the New York Jets secondary heading into week 10…

In what was an all around ugly game, the Jets dropped their third straight, falling to the Dolphins 13-6. The offense struggled once again, but the defense did everything it could to keep the game close. As for the secondary, it certainly helped to face a team led by Brock Osweiler, as the group put forth their best performance in weeks, limiting Miami’s passing attack to 139 yards. The secondary did it without Trumaine Johnson, who will be returning in week 10 after missing five games due to a quad injury. (more…)
