Jets Announce That Coach Todd Bowles and GM Mike Maccagnan to Be Back in 2017

Todd Bowles

The Jets won a meaningless game over a team that was with their second coach of the season Sunday in the Buffalo Bills, but after the game were quick to announce their head coach and GM would be back next season.

New York after wrapping up last season a game out of the playoffs, end the 2016 campaign at 5-11. They have major roster questions, especially at quarterback, but at least know they will have their coach and GM back for 2017.

Running Back Matt Forte a Game-Time Decision Against the Dolphins

Matt Forte

The Jets may not have the services of veteran running back Matt Forte this Saturday, as he practiced on a limited basis and will likely be a game-time decision against the Dolphins.

With the game being Saturday evening, Forte will have to get ready in a hurry if he wants to take the field against the AFC East foe.

Forte sat out practice Wednesday with an injured right knee, but was able to participate in some of Thursday’s session. That’s an encouraging sign for the 31-year-old running back who leads the Jets with 792 yards rushing and seven touchdowns.

Jets Wide Out Brandon Marshall Says Painkillers Made Him Forget One of His Best Games

Brandon Marshall

In a conference call with San Francisco Bay Area reporters ahead of Sunday’s Jets game against the 49ers, New York Jets wide out Brandon Marshall made a rather bizarre admission, talking about barely remembering his three-touchdown performance against the Niners in 2014 when he was with the Bears.

The wide out said he can’t recall much about that game due to a ‘painkiller fog,’ according to Ryan Lazo of the New York Post.

“I don’t really remember much about that game, because I worked really hard to get back from a high ankle [sprain],” Marshall said. “I’ll say it: I took a couple of pain pills that masked the pain.”

Marshall was injured just 10 days before that game, suffering a high ankle sprain, but in the game for Chicago he had 48 yards and three touchdowns on five catches.

“I was supposed to be out four to six weeks,” Marshall said. “I don’t remember much from that game. I just remember catching those balls and that was pretty much it.”

Jets Coach Todd Bowles Admits He Screwed Up the Way He Changed QB’s Monday Night

Todd Bowles

The Jets season has been a disaster pretty much from day one, and now there appears there’s issues even when it comes to trying to communicate changing quarterbacks, as Jets coach Todd Bowles admitted he botched the exchange,

Rich Cimini of ESPN New York has the story.

Bowles was so busy tearing into his team after an embarrassing 41-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts that he failed to inform Ryan Fitzpatrick he was being replaced by Bryce Petty for the final four games.

Fitzpatrick learned of his permanent demotion from assistant coaches, moments before he faced the media. It made for an awkward news conference late Monday night because Fitzpatrick didn’t seem to have the details.

Reporters already knew because they heard it minutes earlier from Bowles.

“I’d been meaning to tell him and I got tied up with a few things,” the coach said Tuesday.

He acknowledged he could’ve handled it better.

“I probably could’ve and he tried to cover for me,” Bowles said. “Like I said, I had a lot on my mind and got some things off my chest, and it kind of went over the wrong way. I’ll talk to him [Wednesday morning].”

What if the Jets Logo Was Made in the Likeness of President Elect Donald Trump?

Donald Trump

Like it or not, next month Donald Trump will be the new President of the United States, and one thing that can’t be denied is it’s going to be an interesting four years in our country.

There’s been plenty of fun poked at the President elect, and one site – Uproxx, has taken it upon themselves to design every NFL logo in the make of our President elect.

Check out what they think the logo of the Jets will look like made in the likeness of Trump!

Andrew Luck Nearly Perfect as Colts Crush Jets 41-10

Indianapolis Colts v New York Jets

Andrew Luck was nearly perfect in his return from a concussion, throwing for four touchdowns, three to Dwayne Allen, in the Indianapolis Colts’ 41-10 romp Monday night past the inept New York Jets.

Not that Luck had to work very hard against the hosts, who were booed by a much-less-than-filled MetLife Stadium almost from the outset.

Luck missed last week’s loss to Pittsburgh, cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol on the weekend, and came back in style with a prime-time performance. He lifted Indianapolis (6-6) into a tie for the lead in the AFC South with Tennessee and Houston.

Allen and T.Y. Hilton were his main targets as he went 22 of 28 for 278 yards, and they received little opposition from the Jets (3-9).

Darrelle Revis Done? Jets CB Reportedly “Doesn’t Want to Play Anymore”

Darrelle Revis

Darrelle Revis announced this summer that he was “going to play until the wheels fall off.”

The Jets cornerback’s decline is due, in part, to his questionable drive and lack of commitment and discipline to maintain his body.

“He’s done,” a Revis confidant told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “If he had his way, he’d be done right now. He doesn’t want to play anymore. He’s made a lot of money.”

Although it’s impossible to get inside Revis’ head, people close to him sense that the guy, who once ate, slept and breathed football is gone forever, replaced by this sad version.

While he can’t say for certain what Revis is thinking, the Revis confidant put the cornerback’s season this way: “He tanked it.”

Revis has waxed poetic about his love for this franchise. He wanted to be a “Jet for life.” He was supposedly downright giddy about “coming home” after two seasons in Tampa and New England.

The Jets will have to make a decision on Revis’ future by the second day of the 2017 league year (March) when a non-guaranteed $2 million roster bonus is due.

Revis has suggested that he’s amenable to moving to safety in the future, but there’s no guarantee that the Jets would want to pay him $6 million to play a new position and he’d actually be a good safety given that he’s repeatedly shied away from contact this season.

Jets Can’t Close Out; Fall to Brady and Patriots 22-17 to Drop to 3-8

New England Patriots v New York Jets

Tom Brady was hobbled, yet efficient as ever with the game on the line and time on the clock.

Playing with an ailing knee, Brady tied Peyton Manning for most wins by a quarterback in NFL history, getting his 200th by throwing a go-ahead 8-yard touchdown pass to Malcolm Mitchell with 1:56 left, leading the New England Patriots to a 22-17 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.

It was the 50th win for Brady after facing a fourth-quarter deficit or tie.

“The quarterback’s job is to win,” coach Bill Belichick said. “He’s won a lot. That’s good. I’m glad he’s our quarterback.”

Trailing 17-16 with 5:04 left and the ball on the Patriots 17, Brady led a solid drive by completing six passes. After James White stretched for 4 yards on fourth-and-4, a 25-yard catch by Chris Hogan put the ball at the 8. Brady then zipped a pass to Mitchell to put the Patriots (9-2) ahead.

“We didn’t play as well as we wanted to,” Brady said, “but we made the plays when we needed to.”
