Is it time for Todd Bowles to be replaced or should they bring him back for another season with the New York Jets? It’s best to give him another year with Gang Green.

After going 10-6 last season, the New York Jets looked primed for another run this season with the players they have on the roster. Unfortunately, things have been a downright disaster this year.

They had finally brought back quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and brought in running back Matt Forte to help out the running game. The Jets got younger on the defensive side of the ball by drafting linebacker Darron Lee and spent big money on a new contract for Muhammad Wilkerson. Those particular achievements don’t overlook the Jets problems that have occurred this season.

The Jets are dealing with quarterback controversies with the poor performance of Fitzpatrick and a questionable locker room situation with very inconsistent play. These problems are all signs that somehow, head coach Todd Bowles and his staff have lost chemistry in that locker room and inconsistent play.

General manager Mike Maccagnan provided the players to Bowles to win but has fallen tremendously from the overall culture. Everything will come down to how coach Bowles utilizes his coaching decisions this second half of the season.

If you come out of the bye week with a 3-7 record, while going up against your arch rivals the 7-2 New England Patriots you need to come out fighting. Bowles needs to show some more passion and discipline his players for making so many consistent mistakes.

The future of Bowles basically comes down to whether or not he continues to stick with Fitzpatrick or just let Bryce Petty take over and see what he has to offer. He should see what Petty has to offer and maybe he could bring something beyond this season.

The one person Bowles should part ways with is offensive coordinator Chan Gailey. He has hurt the Jets in being effective and consistent on offense. Bowles needs to be more of an effective coach and be a leader that his players need to trust. Hopefully, with some better talent next year and players that are developing now, Bowles could have a better outcome next time around. It’s best the Jets stick with Bowles and see what he can do in his third season leading the team.
