Both decision-makers were largely expected to be retained for the 2017 campaign, as Rich Cimini of recently reported that Bowles and Maccagnan would receive “mulligans” from ownership. Clearly, the 2016 season didn’t go as planned — instead of building upon a solid 2015, New York regressed to a 5-11 record, last in the AFC East. The Jets ranked dead last in DVOA heading into Week 17, and were porous on both sides of the ball, placing 31st in offense and 26th on defense.

The Jets figure to be active this offseason in terms of clearing cap space — currently, the club projects to be nearly $5MM over the cap in 2017, meaning Maccagnan and staff will need to release several veterans in order to be in compliance. Meanwhile, New York’s coaching staff could also undergo changes, and offensive coordinator Chan Gailey is expected to be the first coach fired.

    Don’t blame Bowles. Players such as fatso Revis, nut case Richardson, and no effort Wilkerson are poison. Fitzgerald if he was a horse would be put out of his misery!
    Team needs a character adjustment.
    Geno Smith if healthy will be the starting quarterback next year. That says it all!
