    Rumor: Peyton Manning To The Jets?

    Good question. First, I don't think it sends the right message to be doing commercials while a full time GM. Also, he wouldn't have the time as a GM to break away for a week at a time to do a commercial. He does probably 6 a year, equating to maybe 6 weeks worth of work. No way he gets that much time away from the GM job. With that said, I really have no idea how long it takes to do a commercial, maybe it only takes a couple of days per commercial.

    Rumor: Peyton Manning To The Jets?

    Peyton would lose millions from the commercials he makes to come in as GM, that much is true. If however, he truly wants to get back into football maybe money doesn't matter all that much to him. Not sure why he would want to deal with all the BS of being a GM for a historically bad franchise with historically bad ownership. The only way I see this happening is if he desperately wants back into football and really would enjoy working with Adam. Other than that I don't see why he would take the job. Would he be a good GM? Who knows? He's been in the trenches playing for almost 20 years and has won at the highest level, so I think just being surrounded by great players might make him a good talent evaluator. He's seen it all on the field. With all that said, maybe, just maybe Payton would make a good GM. I don't think we'll ever know though. My guess is he is flattered at the offer but turns it down. I know I would if I were him. He could continue to make millions off his commercials while spending quality time with his family. I have to imagine making commercials is easy money, while being a GM is hard work for less pay.
  3. Probably best not to bring him back...too many bad memories post 2010. Not sure we want to burn another draft spot right now for a backup QB with so many holes and there aren't many good options in free agency. We haven't had much luck with the QBs we've drafted outside the first round. Interesting to see which way Macc goes with this.
  4. My money is on the Patriots until Bill and Tom retire. They've overcome all the adversity there is and still wound up on top. I see the jets a competitive 2nd place..hopefully 10-6.

    Why did bill leave the jets

    These aren't just opinions or speculation though. These are fan compilations of what was communicated over the years through the media and interviews with BB and BP. The rub has always been to try and piece together the truth from the chaff. I think some of the knowledgable fans on this forum have actually correctly pieced together the puzzle of information and deduced what is probably the most accurate set of reasons BB left. BB will tell you it was the uncertainty of the ownership and that is partly true, but there is more that happened behind the scenes and outside the media's attention that has alluded us for years. BB won't publicly say that Woody Johnson is an idiot and that he would never want to work for him. But that is true, he just won't and really can't publically say it. Either way, I think we have finally figured it out and can put this to rest...at least I can.

    Why did bill leave the jets

    No, not at all. The only reason I think it keeps coming up is because he is the HC of a team that seems to go to the SB every year and has gone to 8 AFC championship games in a row. Jets fans know that he should've been our head coach with Peyton Manning as our QB. Meanwhile our clueless moron owner hired loser after loser.

    OT: Knicks trade Porzingis to Dallas

    The Knicks might be the worst NY franchise right now....no wait, they are.

    Why did bill leave the jets

    Did anyone (at the time, circa 1997-99) think much of Bill Belichick? I for one, didn't think that highly of him. He had some success in Cleveland but overall, outside of maybe Kraft, Hess and Parcells, who knew the guy was a football genius?

    Why did bill leave the jets

    This is 100% true.

    Why did bill leave the jets

    This is the single greatest answer I have ever heard with regards to this topic....as if it came straight from BB being completely honest about the situation rather than what we have been fed...the politically correct answer. I think the Bill Parcels angle does hold some weight, but the owner situation was the overriding reason. The timing could not have been any more SOJ. If Leon lived on for a few more years, Jets history is completely different.
  11. Predict the future you can 😲. I'd settle for 1 SB in the next 10 years. Set the bar low and you'll never be disappointed.
  12. Stephen Smith is livid that there were no minorities hired as head coaches and is taking out his frustrations by lashing out where he thinks he can. Adam is an easy target.

    DC Williams... IT"S OFFICIAL

    10-6 is a realistic record this coming season with this new staff. I'm pretty excited.
  14. Exactly! We need an Offensive Coordinator. Head Coaches that also act as coordinators don't make sense to me. Gase needs to hire a guy that he can trust to call the plays that support the overall gameplay. Gase needs to be engaged on both sides of the ball.
  15. Do the Jets have a full-time Psychiatrist on staff? If not they may want to consider hiring one

    The Adam Gase Poll

    Well we'll see how this turns out. I'm not too optimistic, but maybe Gase learned from the last 3 years. He is still very young, so who knows.

    McCarthy is NOT the answer damnit!

    Agreed. The Jets are way past the point where gambling on a head coach is an option. We've been gambling since Parcells left and we've lost every time. Enough ******* around. We need McCarthy.

    McCarthy is NOT the answer damnit!

    And this makes him qualified to run an NFL team how exactly?

    McCarthy is NOT the answer damnit!

    Name one other available coach that won a Super Bowl, has 6 division titles, won 15 games during a regular season, has a .618 winning percentage and actually wants to coach this sh*tty team? Matt Rhule, as a college head coach, has a 36-40 record, is 8-17 over the last 2 years at Baylor, and his only NFL experience was as an Offensive line coach and you want this ******* guy to resurrect a dead NFL franchise? Bruce Arians went 27-39 at Temple, had two good seasons with the Cardinals but never got them to the Super Bowl, let alone won a Super Bowl. Oh and he is 66 years old. Good luck in Tampa with Todd Bowles calling your defense. Todd Monken 27-35 at Old Miss only 1 winning season in 3 years. Adam Gase - 23-25 with the Dolphins over 3 years. I think the choice is pretty obvious, which means the Jets will do the opposite.
  20. With all the conflicting media coverage, just curious where we think Mike McCarthy winds up coaching next year.
  21. I don't disagree he probably sits out this year, but I was hoping he would bring credibility back to the Jets. The last time we had a Super Bowl winning coach was Bill Parcells and we got close to winning it all. I think Mike could do the same for us and maybe even get us to the promise land.
  22. Sounds like it will be a cool uniform. Now we just need a Harbaugh to go with them 😁

    Johnson Denies Harbaugh Report

    I'm not going to speak for Tom, but I think what he means is that the way the Johnson's treat the firing of Bowles will be watched closely by the league and by head coach candidates. It has to be done in a professional manner.

    Johnson Denies Harbaugh Report

    But are you mentally prepared to watch the debacle that will be next season if Bowles is still at the helm?
