Is it time to move on from Todd Bowles?
By Jason Rodriguez
Has time run out on head coach Todd Bowles for the way the New York Jets have performed these past few weeks?
Going into his third full season, head coach Todd Bowles hasn’t seemed to get things turned around since he has been in position. Since 2015, the New York Jets total wins have regressed and it looks like it won’t get any better. He has a record of 18 wins and 23 losses which is a .462 winning average. It also seems he hasn’t had a grip in making the correct decisions when it needed to count the most towards winning football games.
He shows no emotion on the sidelines which you wonder if he cares enough or if he is there just for the paycheck. He doesn’t hold players responsible for the mistakes they make and he doesn’t change things around that have been a success. He seems like he second guesses himself on many occasions in crucial situations.
When you compare him to the majority of other head coaches, you see them very emotional on the sidelines but when you see Bowles he has nothing. He looks like a motionlessness person that you wonder what in the world is he thinking about. He doesn’t get in players faces and he continues to be outmatched and doesn’t take enough risks.

The culture he is trying to install in this organization doesn’t seem like it has been working. Maybe it is time for them to go there separate ways and bring in someone fresh who can bring a tough and winning attitude.
They have some great young talent on this team that needs to be utilized the correct way and Bowles hasn’t done it. They can’t let this talent go to waste for how long they have left with them under contract.
They need to convince the players to continue to believe but it looks like Bowles is losing them. It does not get any easier as it is tough but it looks like it is getting to him and he doesn’t know how to handle the situation.

It is time for the Jets to move on from Bowles and bring in someone who can bring a fresh start? They need to look at some veteran coaches out there, and maybe they can look at some college coaches that can come right in and take care of business. They need to bring a winning mentality to this organization and stop being one of the laughing-stocks of the NFL, especially in the AFC East. Whether Bowles is removed during the season or after it, things aren’t looking so good for him at this point in time.
