Todd Bowles is "Freaking Perfect."

According to Jason Taylor, who is totally most well-known for his one-year stint with the New York Jets and not his Hall of Fame career with the Miami Dolphins, said today that Todd Bowles is "freaking perfect."

Taylor then went back to Miami for the 2011 season, his last in the NFL. Bowles, a longtime defensive coach, was interim head coach for three games that season following the firing of Tony Sparano.

Despite going 2-1, Bowles was passed over for the full-time job in 2012. Taylor said he likely would have played longer if Bowles had gotten the gig.

"If Todd’s the head coach, I want to play for Todd," Taylor said. "That’s the kind of guy he is. I would run through a brick wall for him."

Bowles has been touted as a defensive genius, but unlike his predecessor, Rex Ryan — who was also known for his prowess on that side of the ball — the 51-year-old native of Elizabeth, New Jersey, is about paying attention to all facets of the game, not to mention someone who holds his players accountable.

"Schematically, forget about it. There’s nobody out there that can touch him," Taylor said of Bowles’ ability to design defenses. "He’s honest, very honest, and he’ll tell the players exactly where they are and what they need to do. He’ll have a very focused, disciplined team that won’t have a ton of mental errors or penalties. He won’t put up with that."
