NEW YORK (AP) - Start them right away? Ease 'em in? Have them sit a whole season? When it comes to developing young quarterbacks in the NFL, it all depends on who you talk to. Some teams think it's best to throw rookie QBs into the fire to learn on the job. Others prefer to gradually work them into the offense. Some say it's more beneficial to have them grab a cap and clipboard and take it all in from the sideline.
Time to start the "Which coaches are on the way out?" watch in the NFL, and all eyes are on Todd Bowles of the New York Jets at the moment. How quickly it all fell apart for them. After going 10-6 in his first season there, the Jets are 13-29, a .310 winning percentage.
If you are hoping to see your team play in Super Bowl LIII, they better get to scoring. So far in 2018, each of the top 5 offenses is eclipsing 29 points per game, bringing the league-wide average to the highest it’s ever been at 24.1 points per game.
