Hate having to talk about this which seems EVERY other year, but damn jets, so here we go....
- Regardless of how terrible this place becomes/is there are only 32 of these positions across football. Contrary to what the media says, there will be someone clamoring for this job come next year.
- People underestimate how prideful and egotistical NFL coaches are. Most of them have been in some assistant coach role that they turned some unit from chicken s*** to chicken salad. Therefore, given the opportunity to run the entire ship, you would expect them to feel like they can make even make the jets contenders. One caveat is, they would have request more control usually the worst the team/owner.
- Then we get to the idea of control. A coach with said ideals mentioned above, would demand more control. Listen as terrible as the jets have been, a coach will always jump at the opportunity if given certain levels of control in the org. For example, Gruden. Although he has Mayock his form of control was a 10 year deal, which guarantees he'll be there longer than you'd expect any GM.
-Last but not least, possible #1 pick , top 3 in cap space, barely any bloated contracts, the ability to sign/bring your own coaching staff, NY allure( make it here, legend status, blah blah blah), capable GM, and a "start from scratch roster", a coach can really put is imprint on this team for the foreseeable future.
I'm sure I'm missing more points, but this is my subjective take on the state of our future coaching search. The question is, who sees what I see and who's willing to turn the jets around.
