  1. Mangini was a sane human being at least. I think if given more time, he would've built a winner. But that's just my opinion.
  2. In a follow-up post, he did say that Jill needed to go but that the Jets were too scared to fire her because of #MeToo.
  3. I still blame the Johnson family for this though because they paired these 2 together while having each report to them. I still don't get why a franchise would do that (and I know the Jets aren't the only ones doing this btw). I think you hire "the guy" and let him make the decisions.
  4. I'm not saying Bowles didn't deserve to be fired too but Macc didn't give him very much to work with. Look at our QB situation for example. Hack was a huge swing and miss. Of course that stuff happens (e.g. the Broncos and Pax Lynch). But you can't really win in today's NFL without a good QB. And Macc's non-high-1st-round picks were mostly forgettable (Devin Smith, Chad Hansen, Ardarius Stewart, Lorenzo Mauldin, etc). For a guy with a scouting background, that was inexcusable. Let's hope he hits on a few in this past draft but I'm not holding my breath. I'm confident Quinnen will be good but we'll see if he hits on any others.
  5. "How To Be Popular" - is that the type of thing you're joking about - lol! Speaking of the Brady Bunch, hopefully Gase can prevent opponents from stealing our playbook. Btw, what boy that age would risk having Marcia break up with him by stealing her brother's playbook? Where were his priorities?! He was dating Marcia Brady for crissakes!
  6. Were we even on pace to build one in 7 years?
  7. I didn't want any part of any of these coaches (McCarthy, Ruhle, KK). I don't know about Gase (there are seemingly some positives but he seems mentally unstable) though I wasn't thrilled with the hire. I badly wanted the Jets to get John Harbaugh but he didn't shake free and I wouldn't haved trade our #1 for him. So, in short, I don't know that I even had a preferred candidate of what was out there. I did want an offensive HC for once and Gase was at least that. And he was supposedly a highly regarded OC before he went to Miami. I remember people around here talking him up early on in his Miami tenure too. I just fear he's the type of guy who is too combustible to last long-term anywhere. And I feel like Jet ownership is now bending over backward to find a GM who can work with him. Maybe they're going to have to name Gase both the HC and GM. This way, if it fails, they can start from scratch and just hire a GM and let the GM decide the rest (as it should be!)
  8. Probably Charley Casserly. Of all the stories out there, that's the one that really bothers me the most. Macc was going to get fired in Houston but he was Casserly's buddy so that was the recommendation. The Johnsons hire the guy for his help and he pulls that crap?! I'm probably more upset at Casserly than I am at Macc/Bowles/Johnson bros.

    Rumor: Peyton Manning To The Jets?

    This I'd be fine with. Well, I think so anyway. That "Director of Football Operations" thing for Peyton (who is still unproven) scares me a little but if that's what it took to have him as "Personal Guru to Sam Darnold" then sign me up! If Douglas doesn't happen, I'll be very bummed out. I'd like the Jeremiah thing to happen as well.

    Rumor: Peyton Manning To The Jets?

    The LAST thing I want is for the Johnsons to try to reinvent the GM position by hiring “out of the box”. I can only imagine what they’re envisioning. Does Peyton have ANY front office experience?! I love this whole “he has to get along Gase” talk. I don’t think it came from CJ but I feel like there has to be truth to it after Gase won the power play. It truly is like “Emperor Gase”. Bottom line - just do whatever it takes to get Joe Douglas in here.

    Rumor: Peyton Manning To The Jets?

    Would be the greatest train wreck imaginable but I’d still be for it for the entertainment value.

    Which Franchise is the Worst?

    From what I’ve heard, this is not true. Mexico loves American football. I think the sport is growing in England as well

    I wouldn't "give" Gase any extra time. If it looks like he's a trainwreck then fire him after next year. This franchise should be laser-focused on getting the right people in place to help Sam Darnold.

    You make a good point.

    Clayton: jets could trade Bell

    Oooh I know! The greatest HC of all time.

    Are you still looking forward to the season?

    I don't know about that. I think this is going to be an overarching thing this season. Gase is going to be the one with the target on his back. And even if the fans would forget (which I don't think they will), they'll be reminded by the sports media on a regular basis. Basically every Gase controversy (or even potential controversy) is going to bring up a rehash of stuff like the other day.

    Maybe our HC never wanted him and we're about to get a new GM?
  18. Someone posted an article earlier about CJ didn't want to fire both his GM and HC because it would be too overwhelming to fill both positions like those. So it sounds like he trusted Macc to help find him a good HC. But then he turned around and fired Macc (like he wanted to all along) and is going to a hire a GM based on the reference of his new HC. It's sounds crazy enough to be 100% true.

    I'm pretty sure your post has words in it but I haven't gotten around to them yet.

    Maybe KC?

    I think I'm actually more interested in this coming season after all these fireworks. It seems like it's going to be crazy.
  22. That would've been a solid move IMO. Shanahan is at least a professional.
  23. It would be a good story (and great for the Jets) but I'm not optimistic about it.

    100 percent false. Maybe 200 percent.
