(somewhat of an) UPSET PICK OF THE WEEK
Although there were rumblings from fans, especially by the end of last season, that Todd Bowles should be fired... there were still many fans that believed he could still turn things around. Franchise management also believed this evident with the contract extension.
Following back to back absolute offensive stagnation, along with habitual bad (overly conservative) game planning, and severely questionable game management (at critical points in the game whether it be time outs, kicking FG's late in the game, etc.) by the HC... we have witnessed something grow astoundingly in this time period; an overwhelming number of Jets fans and critics have not been shy about what they believe the Jets should be doing... Fire Bowles!
More importantly, are the players, in a subtle manner, publicly displaying they are sick of losing attitude. I do not blame them, and also believe if the Jets lose this game... it will be good by Bowles... and I believe the players know this. I also believe the fans know this... if the Jets suffer a 3rd consecutive loss in which the defense does everything they can to get the win (watch for a less than stellar performance by the defense) and the offense remains extremely ineffective... Bowles is gone, period.
No HC (unless ownership has problems of their own) in this era of the NFL allows more than two years maximum to show they have what it takes to improve, get things done, and display indications that they can build a team to compete for a Super Bowl. Patience is not an option in this league anymore.
PREDICTION: Take the Buffalo Bills +255
FINAL SCORE PREDICTION: Buffalo Bills 17, NY Jets 10
