It is an ugly time for the New York Jets. The team heads into its bye week on a four game losing streak. The most recent of those losses was particularly ugly, a 41-10 home blowout at the hands of a Bills team playing a quarterback recently signed off the street.
Change is in the air with the Jets. It won’t come immediately. Reports broke on Monday that the team will not fire Todd Bowles at this point. While this will be to the chagrin of some fans, the long-term impacts are negligible. It is merely delaying the inevitable. Bowles will be fired at some point in the coming weeks.
Less clear is the job status of Mike Maccagnan, the team’s general manager. Many people think he will survive. Many think his body of work is superior to Bowles’. Is it really, though? I have my doubts. Maccagnan’s suspect record is the topic of today’s podcast.
