Jets hire Bowles as coach, MacCagnan as GM

It took fiftteen long days of interviews and discussions between New York Jets owner Robert “Woody” Johnson & his consultant’s in former GM’s Charlie Casselrey & Ron Wolf, but the decision has been made as former Houston Texans head of College Scouting Mike MacCagnan & former Arizona Cardinals defensive Coordinator Todd Bowles have been hired in their respective positions as General Manager and Head Coach.

Mike MacCagnan started out with the former London Monarchs of the World League of American Football as a scout and then made several stints in the Canadian Football League as well as a 20 year history inside the NFL as he was once the right hand man of Charlie Casselrey as the GM of the Washington Redskins & Texans, who helped out Johnson with the interviewing process.

To be honest there were rumors circling around that Casselrey were interested in trying a NFL GM job one more time, but it looks like that he is missing his TV Time for the NFL Network. But while MacCagnan is known for checking out prospects in these senior bowl types of games as a scout, we will find out if he is suited for the big office as a General Manager.

As for Todd Bowles his hire is very simple, Dan Quinn is still a part of the Seattle Seahawks coaching staff and has a NFC title game to play against the Green Bay Packers, as the Jets didn’t want to wait and see if Quinn would be available if the Seahawks would head back to the Super Bowl or not. But once again the Jets hired a new head coach who is a master tactician on the defensive side of the ball with the Arizona Cardinals.

Unlike Dominic Rodgers-Cromartie who left the Jets training facility after his interview and signed with the Giants, the Jets gave Bowles his second interview and kept him to sign his contract. A man who played eight seasons in the NFL as a defensive back for the Washington Redskins & San Francisco 49ers will lead Gang Green into the future. He was the interim head coach for the Miami Dolphins back in 2011 after Tony Sparano was fired and has a 2-1 record.

Listening to all the talk shows on radio and NFL Network suggested that Bowles is the next coordinator to make the move into a head coaching position and right now it sounds like MacCagnan & Woody Johnson have found their man very quickly to make this happen. But once again we won’t know anything about these people until we get to the NFL Draft in the end of April, resigning key free agents and free agents who want to come here.

We will need to see what Bowles can really do as the top man of the Jets once we get to training camp, exhibition games and when the regular season starts in September the weekend after Labor Day. At the moment it’s a solid start to this new tandem and hopefully they will get the chance to change things around.

Red Bulls fire head coach Mike Petke

From Kristian Dyer of Metro NY Newspaper in the late Tuesday & Early Wednesday hours just reported that the New Y
ork Red Bulls has fired Head Coach Mike Petke after two seasons. This shocking move came out of nowhere as Mike Petke had two successful seasons getting the club into a place they have never been.

Winning the 2013 Supporters shield and sending the club deep into the MLS Cup Playoffs last season with the first playoff win at Red Bull Arena and defeating DC United, but just falling short against the New England Revolution.

More news will be coming but right now chaos and turmoil have hit the Red Bulls just before the schedule of the 2015 season comes out.

The Rex Ryan Era is officially over in New York

On Black Monday after the final regular season game ended in Miami during the 2014 NFL Season with Head Coach Rex Ryan along with General Manager John Idzik at the helm as the season ended with a 4-12 record, but it also ended with a bit of a positive as the Jets defeated their rivals down in South Beach.

But sadly what should’ve been an improvement to an 8-8 season from 2013 became a gigantic disaster as both Idzik and Ryan didn’t actually mesh well from the offseason of 2013 towards the end of this current season and it really showed at the end.

For six seasons Ryan led the New York Jets and in his first two seasons towards the AFC Championship Game but sadly fell short of the Super Bowl at the Indianapolis Colts and at the Pittsburgh Steelers. You thought there was going to be more of these types of seasons as well as a Super Bowl appearance from Ryan, but sadly his faults came to him quickly.

While he was a defensive genius and had the best cornerback tandem in Darrell Revis and Antonio Cromartie for three years and slowly started to build a great run defense with Sheldon Richardson, Quinton Coples, Muhammad Wilkerson, David Harris and so on his powerful secondary has crumbled.

Ryan sadly hasn’t developed a quarterback as we saw some signs of the late struggles of Mark Sanchez for four year and while it was a decent start for Geno Smith, we saw what happens when a young gun suddenly falls apart mentally in the sophomore season slump. What Ryan does best is get his players ready for battle and sadly as a player’s coach it can backfire on you like what happened in the blowout loss at the San Diego Chargers.

Idzik who had to inherit a head coach sadly didn’t make his mark with the Jets with the only exception of a $40 Million salary cap relief fund and failed to fill in the necessary holes that led the Jets to their 4-12 record in 2014.

Obviously Idzik wanted to build the roster thru the draft and felt that getting a few low level players was good enough to get through a season, but what he failed to understand is that it’s okay to build a roster thru the draft and it’s okay to get quality players to challenge for a playoff spot at the same time.

Getting swept by the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots and nearly defeating all four opponents in the NFC North just doesn’t cut the mustard while you barely defeat the Oakland Raiders and defeat a quality opponent in the Pittsburgh Steelers who thought it was going to be a cake walk at MetLife Stadium.

At the end of the day Robert “Woody” Johnson did the right thing, as he fired both men at the end of the season. While I liked Ryan as a coach, the truth is he wasn’t going to get another season after a destructive 2014 campaign. Idzik never deserved a third season as the GM as he is a salary cap-ologist and while he did make some shrewd moves & picks in the draft, you knew he has no idea about personal moves for the roster.

But if Johnson fired Idzik and kept Ryan, he would’ve been considered a joke of an owner. If he fired Ryan and kept Idzik the fans would’ve started a movement for Johnson to sell the team. But he listened to the fans and he saw with his own eyes that a housecleaning was needed and for that I am grateful he wasn’t blind to the problems at hand.
