The current setup of the New York Jets between Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles has created division, friction and passive-aggressive petulance. 

The relationship has eroded over the years, which began as a shot-gun marriage arranged by Charley Casserly and Woody Johnson.

The belief is Maccagnan can learn from his mistakes, but the brain trust has lost faith in Bowles. 

Bowles and Maccagnan do not share the same vision or views on players. While they have been professional, they don't think the other truly respects the other's ability to identify talent.
