k Jets.For now Youth John Miller Jersey , at least.It was business as usual Monday for Bowles, whose job status appeared extremely shaky after the Jets' embarrassing 41-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday , their fourth consecutive defeat that dropped the team to 3-7."We picked a bad day to have a bad day," Bowles said during a conference call.No doubt about it.Fans at MetLife Stadium booed the team throughout and chanted for the Jets to fire Bowles. That sentiment was echoed by many fans on social media and sports radio Monday morning. Several published stories also speculated that the time to make a change would be now with the Jets heading into a bye-week break.Instead, owner Christopher Johnson opted to not fire Bowles.The two were scheduled to have their usual Monday meeting later in the day, but no change in Bowles' status was expected."What gives me faith that I'm the right guy? I coach football," Bowles said. "As a coach, you go back to the drawing board. And that's what I'm going to do. We'll come back and we'll prepare better and get ready for the next one."For many, it's a surprise that there will even be another game for Bowles to coach with the Jets.He is 23-35 during his run with the Jets, a .397 winning percentage that is better than just one coach in franchise history with at least 30 games in charge: Rich Kotite (.125). And, as anyone familiar with the team knows, that's one name you'd prefer to not be associated with.The Kotite years, when New York went 4-28 during the 1995-96 seasons, are synonymous with losing. It's not nearly as bad with Bowles. But there hasn't been much winning Authentic Kyle Williams Jersey , either.The Jets got off to a promising start under Bowles, who guided New York to a 10-6 record in 2015 but fell a win shy of the playoffs in his first season 鈥?losing a win-and-in game against Buffalo in the regular-season finale. Many expected the Jets to take the next step under the coach, who was considered a terrific defensive mind in stops in Miami, Philadelphia and Arizona.It hasn't happened.Consecutive 5-11 seasons followed, and now there's this increasingly dismal one, in which even five wins might be tough to come by. And, Bowles doesn't need to look far to point blame."I take all of it," he said.That's the noble approach, but there's plenty of culprits: playing a rookie quarterback in Sam Darnold; a struggling offense under coordinator Jeremy Bates; a wildly inconsistent defense and a lack of overall roster depth 鈥?something that is a big strike against general manager Mike Maccagnan."I don't talk about my job status, but we know we get paid in this league to win football games," he said. "We're 3-7 and we've got to do a better job."The fan base is understandably frustrated and restless, and keeping things status quo will do little to appease those who wanted to wake up Monday morning to the news that Bowles was gone.So, the fired-up criticisms at the stadium and on the airwaves will continue, and Bowles knows it."It's not my first rodeo Youth Vladimir Ducasse Jersey ," he said. "When you win games, people cheer. When you lose games, people boo. I get it. It's part of sports."In some respects, it would have been a bigger surprise if the Jets had fired Bowles at this point. Parting ways with a head coach in the middle of the season is rare for the franchise, and has never happened since Woody Johnson purchased the team in 2000.The last in-season coaching change for the Jets came in 1976, when Lou Holtz resigned with one game remaining. The last coach to be fired was Charley Winner in 1975, when he was replaced by Ken Shipp for the final five games.Christopher Johnson, who is running the team while his brother has the role of U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, apparently believes it's better to see the rest of the season through with Bowles and make the final decision on the coach 鈥?and, perhaps, on Maccagnan 鈥?after the final game.After all, there's no other coach on the current Jets staff with previous NFL head coaching experience. Only wide receivers coach Karl Dorrell has even major college head coaching experience. So there would have been no clear-cut option to take over to finish the season.That's not to say there won't be any changes. Bowles wasn't considering shaking up his coaching staff at this point, but wouldn't rule it out."I'll focus on everything," Bowles said. "There's no one thing when you're 3-7 toward the bye. The self-evaluation starts with me Cheap LeSean McCoy Jersey , then the coaches, then the players. So, I'll make sure I cover everything."This could all be moot in seven weeks, of course, when the Jets could 鈥?and likely will 鈥?move forward without Bowles. But until then, he's focused on somehow figuring out how to salvage this rapidly deteriorating season."Yeah, it comes with winning," he said. "Winning turns things around."Buffalo Bills week one inactives: cornerback Vontae Davis a healthy scratch When the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens square off today in their 2018 NFL season opener, they will do so with only two players missing the game due to injury. With NFL rules being what they are, however, five other players join injured wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud III and injured linebacker Julian Stanford on the inactive list for today’s contest. Also included on the list is one very surprising name.Here are the Bills’ inactives for this week.WR Ray-Ray McCloud IIIThe rookie receiver/return man will miss the contest due to a knee injury he suffered late in the preseason. The Bills still have five active receivers for the game: Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones, Jeremy Kerley, Cam Phillips Cheap Kelvin Benjamin Jersey , and Robert Foster.CB Vontae DavisWhoa. The presumed starter at corner opposite Tre’Davious White is a healthy scratch for his first game as a Bill. Phillip Gaines will start outside, leaving rookie Taron Johnson to man the slot.CB Ryan LewisLewis was added to the roster after cut-downs, having spent the preseason with the New England Patriots. He’ll wait at least a week to suit up in Buffalo.LB Julian StanfordThe veteran linebacker was questionable for this one with a nose injury, and he will be unable to go as a result. The Bills have five active linebackers: Matt Milano, Lorenzo Alexander, Tremaine Edmunds, Deon Lacey, and Ramon HumberT Conor McDermottMcDermott was inactive for the majority of the 2017 season with the Bills, and he will begin 2018 in the same fashion.G Wyatt TellerThe Bills are comfortable with Russell Bodine and Marshall Newhouse serving as the only backup linemen for the day. Newhouse was cross-trained at both guard and tackle this summer, presumably for this very reason.TE Khari LeeThe Bills roll with three tight ends, including Jason Croom, who will appear in his first professional game. Backup tight end Logan Thomas is also the emergency quarterback, which may have given him the edge on Lee. Here are Baltimore’s inactives:
