The New York Jets are facing yet another losing season but firing general manager Mike Maccagnan will not completely solve all their woes.
It is one thing if you fire a head coach. Bringing about change in the way the coaching situation of the New York Jets is right now is totally a move that many fans and possibly even some of the players feel is necessary. Others may laugh at Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett for his clapping, however, Todd Bowles lacks the enthusiasm and emotions needed to get these guys motivated.
Fans may look back to when Rex Ryan was involved with the Jets and the defense was way more pumped and much more exciting to watch. Mark Sanchez may have not been the best quarterback to ever do it, and his infamous butt fumble may have put him in humiliation forever, however, fans tend to see the bad before the good.
Sanchez has brought us some very successful seasons. Ryan had our defense on point. Jets fans had hope in 2010. To completely trash Sanchez for the easily very embarrassing moment if not most humiliating moment in Jets history is one thing, however, you cannot say that before it all got real that you did not have hope during that timeframe.

After a while of doing the same thing over and over, you can only hope you can get to the root of the issue and fix it to move on.
Maccagnan has made some decisions that many have questioned, but you must give him credit for the signings and attempting to fix a team that has been historically awful for a while. While his patience and faith in Bowles are obviously there, he knows that you can’t turn a franchise around overnight.
Firing Bowles may be needed. Too much change can impact a team significantly for the worse by bringing in new faces and completely wiping out everyone who may have had some sort of connection.
It’s in the best interests of the Jets to keep Maccagnan as it’s evident that the franchise has major issues with coaching and preparation, not the overall talent on the roster. Firing Maccagnan won’t magically fix all the woes of the Jets as it’ll set them back even further. Maccagnan isn’t perfect but has done enough to stick around for at least a few more seasons to finish what he started.
