As the New York Jets head into their bye week, head coach Todd Bowles recently broke down the strategy he hopes can put the team in a better place.
Right now, the New York Jets are stuck between a rock and a hard place. They’re 3-7 and at the bottom of the AFC East thanks to their current four-game losing streak. Fans are asking for a coaching change and even an entire leadership regime change after their embarrassing 41-10 Week 10 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Luckily, the Jets are heading into their bye week to take a step back and assess their entire situation. Head coach Todd Bowles will not be relieved of his duties as all signs point to the organization keeping him in place to finish what he started. What happens at season’s end has yet to be determined.
If anything, Bowles knows that time is ticking and with just six games left on the schedule after their bye week, it’s all about ending the season on a high note. The Jets are not in any way, shape, or form going to the NFL Playoffs but if they can at least come back from their bye ready to fight for wins, perhaps it can lead to better things in the future.

For now, Bowles knows that there is a lot of work left to do in this last month and change of regular season football in order for him and his coaching staff to have some kind of job security heading into the offseason.
Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is what Bowles said he can do differently to change the current state of the team:
We’re going to take a long, hard look at everything this week, coaches and players. We’re going to put the best guys out there that can help us get better. We’ll review everything we’re calling on both sides of the ball. That’s what you do during the bye week. We’re going to try like hell to win the last six games.
Hopefully, Bowles lives up to his word and puts together a better game plan as they will be facing quite the team after the bye week. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, the Jets have a date at home in MetLife Stadium against the New England Patriots. It’s time to make some serious changes during the bye week and at the very least, play some competitive football from here on out.
