    It's time for Todd Bowles to go

    posted by: Site Admin | 0 comments | Jets Regular Season

    This Sunday afternoon was just like many others lately. The New York Jets took the field only to once again lose, showing absolutely nothing worth of notice on both sides of the ball. As the Gang Green suffered their second loss in a row, falling farther below .500, it became pretty obvious that this was shaping up to be yet another losing season. Bowles' third losing season in a row. The Jets lose. We're used to it by now. It's not that they lose but how they lose. If they don't turn the ball over, then they simply cannot execute. If they do execute, they commit a dumb penalty that moves them back. There's always something. It's the Same Old Jets again and again.

    The point spread in last week’s game threw us for a loop. The people who know about such things and do so for a living can be found at Sportsbook Review, a site that features the latest, breaking odds at all the major online sportsbooks and particularly those at 5Dimes, the sports bettors choice in online gambling. The line told us that the Minnesota Vikings, a powerhouse NFC team and one that boasts the league's most prolific pass/catch combination in Kirk Cousins and Adam Thielen, were just 2 ½ point road favorites over the Jets.

    It's not often that kickers steal the spotlight but when one breaks a franchise record with seven successful field goals in a game, tongues start wagging. That’s exactly what unheralded Jason Myers did last week which contributed mightily to the Jets' 42-34 victory over the Colts. The Marist College product drilled 30, 48, 32, 37, 45, 37 and 45-yard attempts through the uprights and his 24 points are the second-highest single-game total by any player who did not score a touchdown in league history. Myers was claimed off waivers from the Seahawks prior to the season and out-dueled Taylor Bertolet for the kicking spot.

    Sam the Man - Baptism by Fire

    After a grand total of four games in his professional career, Sam Darnold is getting not so rave reviews from the armchair quarterbacks and even a few of those who should know better. The shop talk is that the Jets should have stayed put at No. 6 instead of trading up to get Darnold at No. 3 which meant that New York could have saved their sixth, 37th, and 49th picks in the 2018 draft, plus the Jets’ 2019 second-rounder from going to Indianapolis. The assets that general manager Mike Maccagnan traded to move up three spots is certainly open for debate, particularly because New York is not a team on the precipice of greatness but rather one that’s on the cusp of mediocrity.
