    I am in FULL AGREEMENT with you.

    Gregg Williams dead man walking?

    LOL. What does Woody's read though? Born on 3B?

    Robby signs tender

    Sorry - I had to do it.
  4. Gase already pulled the "power play" maneuver in Miami and it was rumored to have happened in NY (before Macc was fired). So why would you just assume that Macc did something between the draft and yesterday? Isn't it FAR more reasonable to assume this was another power play on the part of Gase? If we end up with Joe Douglas I'll feel a lot better about the situation. But if he turns down the Jets then we're back to being the circus.
  5. Well he certainly wasted no time making his first trade.
  6. Yes he was but they are at least in the process of building him back up again. But wow did they ever waste some prime years of his.

    Apparently Gase "took on" every big player on the Dolphins last year. I guess Belichick does that with Brady but Gase has an impossibly long way to go before he can be mentioned in the same universe as BB. Andy Reid is a top HC in the NFL. He does have a post-season knock against him but I still have faith in the guy.

    This Has Happened Before ...

    For the record: I didn't like the Bell signing at all (I think OL is way more important). I loved the Mosley signing. Yes we overpaid but we had to if we wanted him here. I did. I have no idea about Gase as a HC but I do think he's both a nutjob and an a-hole of a person. Again though, it doesn't mean he can't be a successful HC. His main job is to tutor Sam Darnold because QBs are what win Superbowls. I'll certainly give him (Gase) a chance even if I do think he's an a-hole. Gregg Williams is another nutjob who seems like an a-hole of a person but seems like a good DC (for a couple of years until he wears out his welcome). I do like the idea that he's probably a DC only at this point in his career because that lets Gase focus on the offense and building up Sam. I could be wrong about this but IIRC, Williams was forced on Gase. I hate that the Johnson family feels like they're knowledgeable enough to meddle like this. I also hate that Gase and whoever our next GM is officially report to CJ (even though the GM will really report to Gase). Everything is just completely screwed up accountability-wise and it's entirely due to the Johnson family's meddling.

    He's 4 months into the job and already he's the HC and interim-GM. His credentials are "Peyton Manning loved me".
  10. And who knows if we're in the process of completely screwing it up.

    Stop blaming the owner, you idiots

    The new uniforms are ass compared to the old ones.

    Stop blaming the owner, you idiots

    Even by your logic, who chose to hire Macc and Bowles? Who kept both of them on for far longer than either deserved? Who chose to have the HC and the GM each report to ownership (instead of the HC reporting to the GM)? Who chose to let Macc spend $100M and run the draft and then fired him (rather than letting the new GM come in and decide how to use those resources)? Who chose a HC that wasn't on the same page as the GM? (And don't give me this "Macc hired Gase" nonsense. The Johnson family hired him).

    Tannenbaum on Michael Kay about Gase

    Really? Because it feels like he just gave full control to Gase. He's now the HC and interim-GM and he's going to help hire the next GM. I think the next GM is basically his puppet because Gase has already proven he has the faith of ownership by winning the power struggle (that both he and CJ are trying to pretend didn't happen).

    Tannenbaum on Michael Kay about Gase

    Good to hear but I would be way more happy if we get Joe Douglas.

    Gase: Success or Failure?

    I don’t know about Gase but if we end up with Joe Douglas then I’ll be happy on the whole even if we should’ve hired Douglas going into this offseason rather than after Macc spent $100M and ran our draft.
  16. Offer him a ton of money and somehow reassure him (ideally contractually) that he, not crazy-eyes, is in charge.
  17. Probably. Watch him end up as GM of the Dolphins next year.
  18. The Jets better not screw this up.

    Bad start for gase, SOJ (merged)

    Bill Belichick was absolutely no laughingstock. He was a highly regarded DC, a hand-picked replacement by Parcells and the Jets tried to give him the job twice. He was always going to get another shot as a HC. I have no idea if Gase will be any good. He seems like a lunatic and an a-hole (as a person) but that doesn’t mean he can’t be a very successful HC. I’m rooting for the Jets to win regardless of what I think of Gase as a person (well, so long as he doesn’t pull a Tyreek Hill type thing). And I would love it if Joe Douglas is Macc’s replacement. I still stand by all my points though. I see no reason why Macc shouldn’t have been fired at the end of last year.
  20. Typically ex-pats don’t do well with other teams but I’d still take the chance. I say bring him in! And I’d still love it if Mangini is brought back, too.
  21. Even though I still say it was absolutely idiotic that they didn’t fire Macc at the same time as Bowles (at a minimum), I would be ecstatic if we ended up with Joe Douglas (and I’d be more than fine with Daniel Jeremiah).

    No, it says “you report to Adam Gase, who completely runs the show here”

    Bad start for gase, SOJ (merged)

    LMAO! Since the day we drafted Darnold I’ve repeatedly said that I’ve never been more optimistic about this franchise. As I previously said, you just are positive about everything they do in the hopes the team eventually gets really good. Then you can brag about how you're “better” than other jet fans because: A/ You’re a STH B/ You weren’t “SOJ”. You’re part of a “new era” of Jet fans who aren’t negative (and that’s what was killing the franchise, etc)

    Bad start for gase, SOJ (merged)

    Most people on here wanted Macc fired but again you’re missing the point If the GM and the HC are not on the same page (and the plan is to fire the GM) then why not fire Macc BEFORE letting him spend $100M and draft players?! Even if Gase works out, this is still indefensible!

    Bad start for gase, SOJ (merged)

    So you’re saying you don’t see any more to the story than that? Because if you read practically any of the posts complaining about this move, you’d know people are upset about the timing of this move. Specifically, firing Macc AFTER letting him run FA and the draft. Also people are wondering what exactly Gase has done to deserve both the HC and GM roles. And make no mistake that he’s not the “interim GM”. He runs this franchise.
