UnitedWhofans Posted November 22, 2016 Share Posted November 22, 2016 I was naive. I thought that since Woody Johnson brought in two football people (Ron Wolf and Charlie Casserly) to assist him in finding a GM and a HC, that he had finally seen the light. That he had finally realized that since he knows very little about football, he should get people in who know about football and are not just bean counters and that when these football people are brought in he would let them do their work. Boy was I wrong. He is as meddling as ever. Even if he didn't meddle in this QB decision, it's clear that he still wants his hands on the team. The statement that Mike Maccagnan, the GM OF THE TEAM, doesn't have the power to fire the head coach, is ridiculous. If Maccagnan turns out to be a bust, which I dont think so yet, no football executive worth his salt is going to take this job. There will be more unproven rookie executives and head coaches because veteran head coaches will want some power and Woody will be unable to give it to them. Maybe this is why Belichick left, I don't know. And of course there is another problem with Woody that I have certainly let known. He listens too much to the media and the fanbase. Joe Beningo, who I wish would just shut up and go back to peddling fruit, said this this morning: "I like Woody Johnson. He listens to fans......." THAT'S THE ******* PROBLEM! He listens to people who are clearly not in the capability of making football decisions. He sways with the wind. He makes too many decisions with the fanbase, media and his wallet in mind. This Fitzpatrick decision is clearly based on getting butts in the seats or getting his money's worth on the 12m. And why was Fitzpatrick resigned? BECAUSE MEDIA AND FANS WANTED HIM TOO. And those who didn't want him were not loud enough or did not have representation in the media. Joe Beningo, to me, represents everything that is wrong with the Jets fanbase and in turn the organization. And the fact that he has a prominent voice in this market is a big reason why there is this cesspool here. I have believed before that the Jets could win a championship with Woody Johnson as owner. Now is the first time in my fanhood (12 years) that I don't think this is the case at all. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
