BlakeSpenceBlockedPunt Posted December 23, 2014 Share Posted December 23, 2014 There are a couple developments that have actually broken right for the Jets and will help as we start the process of rebuilding our football team and football operations: The 49ers and Harbaugh being at odds. The guy has had tremendous success wherever he's been and it looks like he'll be available. I genuinely believe if he hits the market we will at least get a sit down, which means we can literally not let him leave the building. Coughlin returning to NYG - thank goodness we don't have to deal with the comparisons of how the Jets and Giants are going about conducting a coaching search. Having the Giants job (with their history, etc.) open at the same time as the Jets job would have hurt our chances of landing the best candidate out there. They have some things we don't (a 2x SB winning QB, stable ownership, tradition, etc.) that would have been difficult to overcome. Now we may be able to use the lure of the NY market to draw the best candidate. Winston having character issues and our draft position. Jags and Raiders most likely won't go QB that high in the draft. Tennessee and Tampa most surely will. Jets will be in the mix to make a move or potentially have Winston drop to them if teams are concerned about his off field stuff. Not out of the realm of possibility for teams to fall out of love with him after he gets slaughtered in the press during the pre-draft buildup. That's the player I want in this draft and there's a legitimate chance we can get him. Think about it. Harbaugh is under contract. Coughlin should get fired. Winston is a clear cut franchise QB if not for the off field issues. However, there are circumstances that are at play with each situation that are good things as we head out of the Rex era and hopefully into a period of sustained success and football sanity. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
