The New York Jets, despite a record breaking, franchise resetting season are out of the NFL playoffs.
The Jets have the NFL’s dynamic 1000 yard receiving duo in Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. This season they added a 1000 yard rusher in Chris Ivory and got a surprising 701 yards from Bilal Powell!
Coaching changes have been announced as their Special Teams were abysmal and their offensive line faces dynamic changes.
The team brought in Pepper Johnson for the defensive line coaching department and now have a chance to add one of the greats, Kevin Mawae to help out on offensive coaching.
Mawae presents a unique opportunity for head coach Todd Bowles to better a line facing changes as their 30 year old average increases.
New blood and depth are lacking from this roster and they’ll need the expertise of Mawae to coach incumbents hampered by the CBA training restrictions.
Who’s better suited than their own 6x pro bowl center who garnered another 2 pro bowls after being cut too soon. That’s 8 pro bowls in all.
Mawae is a Polynesian football hall of famer and a current NFL hall of Fame candidate. Former NFLPA president and currently owns and coaches via Elite Line Camp.Inc as well as helping out in other local offensive line camps in Texas and Louisiana.
It would be a huge failure on the part of the New York Jets organization to not at least try and obtain his services. Of course there’s no guarantee he’s interested, but certainly worth the phone call.
This week’s episode of the OneJetDrive Podcast covers the loss to the Bills, play evaluation, and so much more. A must listen for any true JETS fan.

For a team known for their third down conversion and Redzone scoring percentages, this team came out tight. Again they couldn’t start fast and there was no fantastic finish as we’ve come to expect during this 5 win streak.
Defensive strategy came into question as did offensive line play and play calling. You decide.
Mike Maccagnan, you’re on the off-season hot seat, now devoid of the 100 million previously available is gone.
With an expected $153 million dollar salary cap number, who stays and who goes.
Sheldon Richardson: We can’t keep everybody on this defense, we’ve out played our contracts. I’m going to miss some guys.
