The Jets have surprised plenty of people with their performance this season, but the organization hasn't yet approached coach Todd Bowles' camp about extending his contract, a source with knowledge of the situation told NJ Advance Media on Wednesday.
This has become a topic of conversation over the last few weeks. By most measures, the Jets have overachieved this season which is a credit to Bowles.
I can’t say I understand why folks are in such a rush to see something definitive done, though. There is still a quarter of the season left to play.
What if the the Jets lose out?
What if the Jets win out?
This team could finish 5-11. It could finish 9-7. The wild disparity of those outcomes would surely impact the Jets’ decision-making.
Unless the team loses out, I think Bowles has probably done enough to earn a fourth season. He has done a nice job this year. I’m not sure I’ve seen enough at this point to justify a longer-term commitment. It might be a good move to let this thing play itself out.
