New York Jets
In an offseason of total upheaval, the Jets recently made possibly one of their most important decisions.
Who says he wouldn’t be good on television?
As far as some of the Jets see it, the underinflated footballs saga is just the Patriots being the Patriots.
Todd Bowles hired Kacy Rodgers as his defensive coordinator and Bobby April Jr. as special teams coordinator Friday. Bowles tabbed Chan Gailey as the Jets’ offensive coordinator earlier in the week.
Beyond our native hubris, do we have absolutely anything to be proud of? Do we have any hardihood on the hardwood, diamond or gridiron?
Todd Bowles says you can’t fool New York Jets fans into thinking their team is good when, put simply, they’re not.
The most encouraging thing that came out of Todd Bowles’ mouth this week had nothing to do with rings or toughness or locker room culture. And yet, it had everything to do with them.
“I don’t necessarily want to rule Geno out or anoint him,” Maccagnan told Carton and Connolly. “It’s a work in progress.”
“I thought it was a first-class operation all the way through,” Maccagnan said. “…It was very clear to me that (Johnson) will do whatever it takes to give us an opportunity to be successful.”
The 63-year-old Gailey was out of football the last two seasons after being fired as Buffalo’s coach following the 2012 season. But Todd Bowles targeted Gailey early to be a part of his staff, which is beginning to take shape.
As has been the case since the fall, the Islanders and the Rangers have been really the only reasons for New York City-area sports fans to feel pride. And they seem to be getting better as the season progresses.
If the Jets are entertaining any notions of moving up in the draft to get one of the two top-rated quarterbacks available, they better look in the rearview. At least one team is reportedly plotting a power move.
After interviewing for at least three NFL head coaching jobs, Marrone landed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tuesday.
Tampering charges have reportedly been filed against the Jets after owner Woody Johnson said last month he’d be interested in Revis returning to the team.
“I feel great about the candidates,” Casserly told WFAN’s Mike Francesa. “I hope the Jets fans feel equally as great now. They should.”
