    Press Conference

    You are certainly correct pressers don’t win games. However, when they are so bad/strange as this one was it puts Gase deeper in the hole. I can guarantee that none of those guys wanted it to go where it did. They probably wanted a eventless press conference with a few easy questions. Get in and get out. They did not want memes of a bugged eyed head coach. When I say of of the worst it is because it will be replayed for years after he his long gone. Also, I do find it funny how people are claiming he is on the spectrum without ever meeting the man. Honestly he is just probably a little awkward nothing more.

    Press Conference

    Obviously that was one the worst press conferences ever for a new head coach. The worst part is that Gase has done this before. You can give a first time coach a pass (well in most markets) however a coach with three years of experience is not a great first impression as a new head coach. Was I mistaken when Gase was speaking about how his Miami Offense was not highly ranked say “we gave up stats for wins”? If true, 1. Don’t teams usually win more with better stats on offense. I mean this made me do a double take. Not sure if I heard that wrong. 2. What players in today’s NFL will want to come play for a coach who says that he held the stats down? In a “I have to get mine numbers for my next big contract” will this play out for FAs? Granted Gase was not my first choice and will still get behind him however I am not feeling very positive about this hire. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Gase Fair Expectations

    Realistically, 6 wins. We have a new offense and new defense coming in. Hopefully new actual talent (who knows who we draft/sign). I will assume we get some of the picks and FA right. (Not a ton of faith in Mac). This all adds up to 6 wins. I am sure there will be growing pains with all the new systems and players. One week it will be a defensive lapse the next an offensive lapse. That being said if the players show improvement I will be fine with the process. If Mac does his usual draft he will be gone. If Gase blows up they are both gone. Regardless, it will be entertaining.

    BREAKING: Jets going to hire Gase

    I think Gase could become a very good head coach. The problem is it rarely seems to happen when a hot shot young coach is fired then takes another HC job right after. He probably would have been better served to go to a team as an OC for a couple of years and regroup. I hope I am wrong and he learned from his experience in Miami.

  5. Just look at it this way. I will not even bring all the college coaches in. How many Big 12 head coaches would want a head of Rhule? Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  6. Not sure how some kind of gloss over the lack of NFL experience. College and the NFL are really two different animals. It’s great he turned two programs around. That has nothing to do with running a NFL locker room filled with multi-millionaires and large egos. The Jets always seem to get first time head coaches. As a fan there is always a learning curve for them. Why in the world would you have to have a young FQB deal with that in addition to learning how to be a Pro!?!?

  7. There is nothing signed yet. I can only hope that this is just Twitter rumors. I mean hiring a head coach with so little NFL experience will only end in disaster. I will give him two years and we will be looking for new GM and coach. The talk of interviewing other would be head coaches to take over as OC is a bad move. Forcing people to work under another rarely works. (Look at the Browns this year). Hire an NFL guy! They will have connections and at least a working relationship.

  8. This is just more Manish foolishness. McCarthy is a very good to great NFL head coach. Rodgers by some accounts seems to have “out grown” him as a coach. That is not a bad thing just the next step for Rodgers. A long term working relationship between coach and QB can change (look at NE it is not what it once was between Brady and Belichick) it doesn’t mean McCarthy can no longer coach. It just means that Green Bay needs a change. The Jets need someone to develop Darnold. He needs to be put in situations that allow him mature and learn. McCarthy has done that with Gannon, Hasselback, Brooks, and Rodgers were all effective when he was involved with them. If we can hire him it would be a no-brainer. Take him, have him develop the basics with Darnold in the long haul it would be the best move. Also, those talking about the failed coordinator from his coaching tree. 1. Most “hot shot” coordinators fail has head coaches. 2. It at least says he hires and trains up others for the next job. I cannot remember the last time one the Jet’s coaches was poached for a head coaching job. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  9. I agree Macc should be fired. He has preformed as badly as Bowles. Will a big time coach work under Macc? I highly doubt any would. If they keep the same structure where GM and coach report only to the Johnsons? Maybe one will take it. There are only a handful of openings. They may take it knowing they will win and power struggle. (Coaches have massive egos) Unfortunately, the Jets have a terrible organizational structure. They don’t allow Macc to hire his own coach when he started and was an unknown quantity but they now allow him to hire or at least have input in the coach when he has proven himself to be a poor GM!?!? If the Johnsons don’t fire him now we are stuck with Macc for at least a couple of years if he hires a first time coach. My guess is we will miss out on the big names coaches and Coordinators. We will talk ourselves into liking whomever is hired only to be back here in a year or so looking for the next coach and GM. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  10. If Mac is picking, it is an assistant coach. No way, he wants an established coach who has a high name recognition. He will be exposed very quickly. I bet he goes for a DC who likes all the first round picks we have along with the 3rd pick in a D heavy draft. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  11. I can only hope that the Johnsons go big game hunting for a coach. It will limit Mac. He will basically be under that coach’s direction or he will lose any power struggle. If they hire a Mac guy we are stuck with him for a couple years as they will it want to pay 3 head coaches. (Bowles still getting paid after the extension).

    Joe Thomas: Darnold is a Bust

    The easiest thing to say about any QB is to say they will bust. Why because most do. So many things have to go right for a QB to become successful. Right team, right offensive system, solid talent around and stay healthy. Take it with a grain of salt and just watch the progression. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Poll rank our last three GM’s

    Tannenbaum has to be 1. His drafts had solid results and seemed to formulate a plan for the draft with worked with the team structure and needs. 2. Idzik a terrible drafter but cleared the cap and at least had a plan for the draft. (If he was drafting in 2015 he’d draft Williams too) should have been fired when he was. Close 3rd Mac - takes early safe picks and I gets lost in the later rounds. Within two years our LT and center retire. And nothing in the draft. Pat Elflein passed for a WR (regardless if he was cut) was questionable on draft day. Brown passed this year for DL (not saying brown is all world but youth and depth for a bad O-line seems like common sense). I don’t think Mac or Idzik will have another GM job.

    I am not saying Mac did not do anything right. Just his overall body of work is as poor as Idzik. He did get Darnold. I thought like most he’d be 1 or 2 (thought the Giants would have been all over him). I do find it ironic that he had to use one of Idzik’s guys to get a pick that secured the #3 pick. Am I glad we drafted him? ABSOLUTELY. I am glad he did not overthink pick and took Darnold. (On draft night was there any part of you that held your breathe because you feared Josh Allen’s name being read at #3 instead of Darnold?) Even, as a fan base, we knew after two years of Idzik he was over his head and his claim to fame was as a bean counter. He cleared cap space and left draft picks for Mac. He was handed Rex and it was mess like most thought. Mac’s claim was as a talent evaluator. Granted he was handed Bowles (a terrible HC, too) but look at the last 4 drafts and there is a staggering lack of talent. We should thank him for Darnold and show him the door. Do you have any more faith in his drafting ability over Idzik? I do not. If you look at the last six drafts can you see a marked improvement? Or do they look similarly bad? Our last two GMs have been terrible and at the end of the day both should not be GMs. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    I would actually say Mac is worse than Idzik. Idzik and Mac first round picks are eerily similar in strategy. Idzik takes Milner (a highly regarded draft pick that fell out of the top 5) Richardson (a solid pick) and Prior (a head coach’s guy). Mac took Williams (the “top guy” in the draft), Lee (a coach’s pick), Adams and Darnold (both guys that fell to us). Second round picks- Idzik takes Geno (he did not work out but he was the Best QB prospect in the draft and we needed a QB) and Amaro (we needed a TE and he was talked about as borderline first round talent). Both misses but hard to fault the picks on draft day. Mac- Smith borderline first round talent and we needed speed. Hackenberg a total reach and had bust written all over it from the start. Maye double dipped on Safety not a bad player if healthy but so many other needs. The later rounds Idzik looked for roster depth at positions of need. The late rounds have a very high fail rate. He hit on Winters, Enewa and Dosier (kind of). Mac have been Snell and ? He doesn’t even look like he knows the holes in the roster. In the third round this year he goes small school DL when Orlando Brown is there. A once first rounder who would be depth for an old and low talent line. FA- Idzik was killed for letting Cormartie-Rodgers leave for the giants. It was actually the right move. He also cleared the books for Mac. Mac- his signings have been poor on the whole. A few low cost signings have worked out however the big contracts have not. We ran Idzik out in two years and set to give Mac more time with less success?!???
