Mangini Accepts Offer To Be Head Coach (Merged) in NY Jets Forum Posted January 19, 2006 What the hell is this criteria that a HC has to "handle the media". Hey, it's all wins and losses, but there's little question that we saw a nervous coach up there at the podium. I think the fact that he NEEDED water shows the point I was trying to make. If the press was inconsequential, then why was he so nervous? He's a human being and human beings don't mix well with the NY media. Anyway, if he wins. it won't matter. Just win baby.
