a blowout win over the Lions in the year’s first Monday night game and there was a lot to like about back-to-back wins earlier this month James Carpenter Jerseys 2019
, but two straight losses have dropped the team to 3-5 at the end of the first half.Jets head coach Todd Bowles said on Monday that he feels the team is “closer from a chemistry standpoint and camaraderie standpoint,” but their on-field work has taken a serious turn for the worse.“The halfway point right now, it’s very frustrating,” Bowles said in his Monday press conference. “Like I said White Buster Skrine Jerseys
, we got to put our heads down and we got to correct this and we got to try to come out and win some ball games. The season is not over. Whether halfway through it, three and five, you don’t like where you are but we dug ourselves this hole, we have to dig ourselves out.”Bowles said he believes the team is capable of correcting what’s wrong and doing so would mark a difference from the last couple of years.It’s the third straight year that the Jets have been 3-5 at the halfway point of the season and they wound up failing to improve on that record in both 2016 and 2017. Bowles survived back-to-back 5-11 seasons Buster Skrine Jerseys 2019
, but another year with a record in that range would make it difficult to argue that the team is showing the kind of progress that would support continuing the relationship for a fifth season. Adam Gase’s coaching staff will contain at least one holdover from the Todd Bowles era. Special teams coach Brant Boyer has signed an extension with the team.Boyer joined the Jets prior to the 2016 season after the firing of Bobby April. His first two years in New York were uneven, but Jets special teams grew into one of the top units in the league in 2018. The unit produced a pair of Pro Bowlers in return man Andre Roberts and kicker Jason Myers. It was one of the most surprising developments of the season as special teams were generally viewed as a weakness entering the season.After the divisive hiring of Gase, this will likely be a popular move Jets fans can agree upon.Boyer previously served as assistant special teams coach for the Indianapolis Colts from 2012 through 2015. He also played in the NFL from 1995 through 2003 for the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars White Brian Winters Jerseys
