    it's so hard to figure out who's going to be the right coach.  i like the fact the guy is from a winning program and has worked his way up.  on the other hand you get clowns like little joshy who just don't seem to realize they are not the bellichicken.

    we'll see. there's still 7 games that may just save bowles.  and there is actually still a chance he'll be a decent coach.  there just seem to be too many personnel talent holes to fill to really judge this guy at times.

    After four years what you see is what you get.

    ha !

    good point

    Imagine what this board would have been like if they had internet in '76? 

    After the victory, Holtz whipped out sheets of papers and distributed them to the players.

    ''I've written a fight song,'' he explained. ''We're going to sing it after every Jets victory.''

    The song, to the tune of ''The Caissons Go Rolling Along,'' started: ''Win the game, fight like men, we're together win or lose, New York Jets go rolling along.''

    My favorite choice(s) to be the next head coach of the Jets are not on that list. They both share a surname. They are brothers and both very successful at being a head coach at the highest of levels in their profession. Folks, I'm sure you know who I'm talking about. Jim and John Harbaugh. Hiring one of those guys would get me awfully excited as a Jets fan. I hope Woody Johnson will invest in one of them to come here and help build this team into a perennial contender for years to come.

    Woody fired Mangini because he rubbed him the wrong way so I doubt that he and Jim Harbaugh are going to hit it off. Having said that, I'd love to see him given the job and, if he can't turn it around, then fold the franchise because there truly is no hope.

    True. But nobody did Bowles any favors by sticking him with the NFL leader in interceptions. What the hell is a head coach to do with that?

    Sam leads the league in interceptions. That’s on him. Can’t blame the head coach for that. Sam threw interceptions at USC, he will throw them till he retires. Can’t expect the coaching staff to make a QB play better. 

    Why not? Isn't that what the coaching staff, and specifically a QB coach, are for?

    I think the most likely scenario is Maccagnan stays, because it would be unfair to fire our bewildered, oafish failure of a GM without first letting him further damage the team by picking his own coach.

    Given the current reporting structure Mac is not going to pick a coach. He may have some input but the Johnsons will make the final decision - which is more terrifying than Mac making the hire.

    I'm glad he's out and we know who we are dealing with. This team has a track record of struggling against backups when they are brought into the game.

    I could just picture this team dominating Tannehill, he limps off the field, and on comes Osweiller to lead the Dolphins to victory. Kinda like last year with Moore...

    Or this year with Mayfield.

    Hackenburg never took a regular season snap at all ever.  He's not gholston but not that far away.  Hackenburg never looked like he could play at any point in his tenure.

    In any case it is not one pick that defines you it is many and Mac has ha way too many guys gone with a year or two of being picked, just horrible.

    Actually he was 51 - 6 = 45 places away, which is significant. Gholston was drafted based upon athletic ability, not his performance on the field - that's not who you draft at 6.

    Draft picks are overrated. The Browns have had 46 draft picks in the last 4 years and their record is 6-49-1. The amount of draft picks you have means nothing. 3rd round picks fail about 80% of the time. Would you rather take that chance or bring in a proven veteran player that can help your team immediately? 

    In fairness to the Browns they did have Hue Jackson coaching those draft picks.

    I want them to replace Long with Harrison and I know Harrison sucks. I'd rather a better exchange between the center and QB then a few missed blocks. It's a pick your poison kind of deal.

    Harrison can miss a block on a blitzing linebacker and Sam could be injured. I'd not pick that poison.
