Wednesday, the New York Jets have fired their offensive coordinator, John Morton. What does this mean? Plus more notes and quotes.

Well, there’s a bit of news for the ticker. John Morton is one-and-done with the New York Jets as their offensive coordinator. This shouldn’t be terribly surprising considering all the reports during and at the end of the season of turmoil.

The timing is weird because the Jets season ended over two weeks ago, so what was the holdup? I think this is a slight indicator that perhaps the Jets have honed in on his replacement and feel comfortable moving on with that security blanket.

Speaking of security blanket, my sources have told me that if the Jets opt to stay in-house, the replacement would be Jeremy Bates, the current quarterback coach. He has a great rapport with the rest of the staff and has an energy that meshes well with the team.

This is an important offseason for the Jets with the uncertainty of the quarterback position. Their next offensive coordinator will prove to be a huge hire in the future of head coach Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan.

Speaking of, the Jets released a statement on Morton’s dismissal. Here’s what the team had to say:

“We appreciate John’s contributions and wish him the best moving forward,” said head coach Todd Bowles.

Short, sweet, and to the point.

Here’s some eye candy Jets fans…you’re welcome.

Who doesn’t like a little eye candy? Here are the top 100 photos from the Jets Flight Crew from the 2017 season. While there isn’t a lot to be proud of with a 5-11 season, this should help you feel just a little bit better watching the playoffs.
