New York Jets Transcript – Head Coach Todd Bowles, 9.24

On how tough it will be for the players to move past the loss against Cleveland…

I don’t think it’s going to be tough at all. It’s a long season, we understand that. If we would have won, we would have moved past it. We lost the game, we’re going to move past it.

 

On how the team came out of the game and the weekend with injuries…

Everybody looks to be okay right now, but Wednesday will tell on the full report. I didn’t see anybody having any problems.

 

On if he got a sense today that the team has already moved past the loss…

Yeah, we’ve passed that. We don’t carry anything too long. We have practice to get better at, and we have Jacksonville to get ready for, so we’re on to the next one.

 

On how he spent his Sunday and if he watched football…

I worked some and I watched a few games and then my son had a football game and I went to that one.

 

On how his son’s football game turned out…

They won by forfeit. The other team didn’t have enough players.

 

On if there was anything they could have done to prevent the Browns second-half comeback…

Yeah we could have coached better and we could have played better. All the way around on both sides of the ball, including special teams we just couldn’t make a play. There were a lot of things we could have done better that have hurt us in the past two or three weeks that we are going to try and work on. We understand that we need to do a better job on both sides.

 

On if he is considering any changes to his starters…

No, I’m not.

 

On if he is optimistic about Marcus Maye playing this week…

Again, still hopeful. He’s running better, but I know I’ve been saying that for a while. But he is getting better and it’s early in the week. As the week progresses we will see if he has a helmet on out there.

 

On how he thinks Sam Darnold will handle his first taste of adversity…

I think he will come out of it fine. I think Sam has the right mentality and he has the right work ethic to learn what he has done wrong, as well as the rest of the team. They come back out of it, and he’s not in it by himself. We are in it as a team. Everything he learns from is an experience. He made some good plays. He had some plays that he can learn from and some plays that he would like to have back. I think he will come out of it fine.

 

On what Darnold needs to do to take the next step in his progression…

Again, it’s more or less the little things. Getting in and out of the huddle, getting the guys on the ball and ready to go and just making the adjustments. The more blitzes and coverages he sees, the more adjusting he will do with the audibles and everything else. I think he is doing a good job now, but that will be never ending for him as a quarterback, regardless of what year he is in. I see him getting better there.

 

On how much of a challenge the Jacksonville defense is for Darnold…

I think every week is a different challenge. They are all tough. We don’t have any patsies playing defense over there. They have an incredible team. We know they went to the Championship Game last year and they have some star players over there. We just have to focus on getting the game plan down and doing the things we need to do to win.

 

On Darnold saying that he wants to be more decisive on his reads and if that is something he has noticed as well…

That’s part of being a rookie quarterback when you see different things. If it’s drawn as it is on the blackboard that’s easy, but when they do different things and you hesitate a little bit, those things come in time and that’s part of his maturation process.

 

On the new roughing the passer penalties being called around the league…

It’s hard. I can’t explain it, it’s tough. I don’t know what to say. From my vantage point, the ones I have seen, those were some very good plays. I don’t know how to coach that in certain situations. That’s very difficult to deal with.

 

On how satisfying it was to see the personal growth of Austin Seferian-Jenkins…

Like I said before, that is outstanding. You’re always worried about the person first and not the player. I think he’s done a great job and continues to do a great job of doing everything the right way, and that helps his football element as well. You know about the talented guy on the field, but from what he’s been through and where he came from, I can’t do anything but take my hat off to him. I have tons of respect for him.

 

On what went into the decision to not re-sign Seferian-Jenkins and how the players now have done filling that void…

It was just business. It was nothing personal. We had other things we were looking at the time. The timing wasn’t right, and he got away. That’s just part of free agency every year, we lose some and we keep some.  But the guys have done a good job filling in right now, and we’re happy with the guys that we’ve got and I’m sure he’s happy where he is.
