I bet this was Bowles' idea to begin with. He probably talked Mac into making an offer.
Johnson being the business man he is, quickly sensed that the jets were being used. He gave them a deadline and pulled the plug when he didn't have an answer. Suh never even bothered to visit.
This is a good move by our CEO, stay hands off but get involved if/when needed. Mac wasn't sticking with the strategy, he was trying to appease the head vcoach. This is why Bowles was not involved in the final decision. I hope our next coach works FOR the GM and not as peers.
