It wasn’t black Monday but it was bleak enough on Tuesday with the New York Jets as the remarking of the 2017 team began in earnest with shakeups to the coaching staff.

Quarterbacks coach Kevin Patullo, running backs coach Marcel Shipp, defensive line coach Pepper Johnson, outside linebackers coach Mark Collins and defensive backs coach Joe Danna learned  of their dismissals on Tuesday.

“I appreciate all of their hard work and commitment and wish them the best,” Bowles said.

The Jets will also have a new Offensive Coordinator as Chan Gailey announced his retirement. On this one if you believe it was his decision only or that he told head coach Todd Bowles that he was retiring at the end of the year …well there is a bridge in Brooklyn I like to sell you. Gailey as the expression goes fell on his sword. He clearly thought he had more left and with basically the same players as last year he clearly had a better result offensively. Clearly Bowles wanted a go in a different with the offense and Gailey saw the writing on the wall make no mistake…this was a firing just done gracefully. The surprise is that Kacy Rodgers is still on as Defensive Coordinator even though the defense didn’t play up to it’s capabilities.

  1. The coaching staff was the least of the New York Jets’ problems . It has all stemmed from the lack of foresight shown by this organization over the last eight seasons. The pomposity of Rex Ryan , led to a slippery downhill slope , while team owner , Woody Johnson showed himself to be dead from the neck up . They spent way too much time dedicating themselves to Met Life Stadium and not enough time to placing a decent on field product to entertain the fans. Pretty much sums so many of the other franchises , who have found themselves in the same predicament , namely the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers .

    1. I don’t think there were any surprises for me.Many of the firings were by non playoff teams and usually those firings are justified in the end. Was there any surprises for you?

      1. Gus Bradley had to go and so did Jeff Fisher in Los Angeles ! The Rams’ front office spent more time dealing with the relocation of the franchise , then they did formulating any type of competitive strategy much less building a team capable of winning. Anyone who actually believes Chip Kelly is an NFL caliber coach needs to be on some type of medication .

      2. Two stops has confirmed Chip Kelly is not a NFL coach. His game hosting system will flourish in college. Josh McDaniels seems to be hot ticket again and the Rams seems interested. Pete Carroll is also being looked at by the Rams.

      3. I wouldn’t call what we see in the PAC 12, football ! Teams there just don’t play defense at all. Carroll won’t be leaving the Seahawks. l. He would be a fool to do so , because the front office of the Rams , as it’s led by Les Snead remains a damn joke.

      4. I don’t see him eating I said he was tied to it because of his days at USC which is bigger than any problems team in LA other than the Dodgers. But the Rams really need to do work

      5. I think the mess created with the Rams was avoidable ! Team owner Stanley Kroenke is overrated as not only a businessman , but also as a professional sports’ franchise owner . As to the idiocy taking place with the San Francisco 49ers , it’s now time for the York family to sell the team to someone who cares and knows something about football from all aspects. That franchise hasn’t been truly relevant since Eddie DeBartolo was forced to give up the team by the NFL hierarchy.

    1. Here let me help them …Revis Richardson Fitzpatrick…Geno Smith if I can get a taker…Mo Wilkerson Devin Smith can’t stay healthy Eric Decker nice player but can be replaced need Tightends …the running backs and Mangold I’m open to keep but other than that everyone 30 and over…bye!

      1. Easier said than done. because the Jets’ GM Peter Macaggnan is still treading water assessing a team which failed to deliver on so many fronts . They overpaid for Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty is still learning the nuances of being an NFL quarterback. I would be interested in seeing Geno Smith’s Wonderlic test score , because I doubt that it would be on par with IQ’s of either Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian or even Sarah Palin.

      2. Fitzpatrick got a 1 yr deal at which he got less than he felt he should have got …he wanted 16 to 18 million he was not overpaid because it was a 1 yr deal. Petty we still don’t know about need to see more. Geno well
        … I don’t see anyone making him a starter …first thing he has to do is spell starter…

      3. Maccagnan has his work cut out for him either way. Fitzpatrick through much of his career has been overpaid while producing little if anything worth a damn !

        The vast majority of the NFL general managers are barely qualified to write their names along the dotted line , but somehow they’re given jobs way above their capabilities. Look at the mess created by both Trent Baalke (Niners), Les Snead (LA Rams) and David Caldwell (Jaguars) . Damn ! For the alleged work , when you look at the returns on the field it is something of a joke to think these guys (general managers) are paid a king’s ransom .
