Just temporary. I hope they bring in a legit GM.

Would like to think they have Gase's buddy Douglas somewhere nearby, but it is the Jets so...

This is bad news for leveon bell.

This was a huge point of friction btwn gase and mac.  Gase does not want players like bell. He made that clear in miami.

Bell tells mac anything he wants to hear b4 signing the contract.  Mac tells gase,”Adam, he gave me his word.  He is even going to show for the involuntary stuff.”

Bell no shows.  Gase furious.  Mac pathetic.

Disagree. A pass-catching back in an offense featuring a young QB and a shaky OL is going to get dozens of bubble screens tossed his way.

Big assumptions there. It’s pretty dam obvious that Macc didn’t pick Gase.

Don't really get this. Grant that the Jets' organizationsl structure chart is basically a bowl of spaghetti. While Maccagnan may have been in the room,  he did not pick Gase. And watching your franchise QB run for his life  all last seasonto then see your GM spend draft picks on specials guys and a corner with 2 bad knees and only one OL guy was INFURIATING.

They do a lot with anaytics, too, IIRC, which is long overdue here.

Maccagnan is a scout who should never be a GM. A scout  falls in love with players. No way an analytics team allows a 2nd round pick to be spent on the likes of Hackenberg. That pick was a scout talking to his buddy, nothing more. A scout picks 2 safeties when his offense is from hunger. A scout keeps taking DL guys when you have those slots covered. I have never heard any other team spend as much time and energy selling their picks as THE BEST AVAILABLE PLAYER. Adams, for example, is a good safety. But taking him over Mahomes or Watson at that time was CRAZY AND STUPID. 

This move doesn't smell like roses, but it's still the right decision. He has no concept of positional value, and he specifically and the organization generally have overvalued defense and DBs above all. And done to at a time when the rules make DBs overhead, not important.

Yup.  And he is starting to go after them.

 

This may sell his crappy newspaper. But the move is not wrong. Clear for too long Maccagan was really bad at his job. There was no point to keeping him around if was going to spend his days pining for Matt Rhule and badmouthing Gase. Either get with the program and DO YOUR JOB or be gone. 

Next time Maccagnan or another GM tries to snow reporters by saying over and over his draft choices were THE BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE some reporter will take a few minutes to break out the laptop, look at profootballreference.com and try top see if that is true rather than taking him at his word and printing such garbage. 

Mehta is the f___ing worst. What a clueless dick.

Could be the DC/son stuff, and at that point they couldn't go on a GM search in March so they just let it go through the draft. 

You don't hire a HC and say here's your force-fed DC, and then the DC says here's another force-fed coach because he's the DC's son. Honestly I think that was the last straw for Gase, and the worst offense. You make a guy the HC he gets to pick his own staff or don't bother hiring him. Just took this long for him to wear down Chris Johnson, who probably hoped things would smooth out for a while at least with the draft over.

I also don't think Gase is as thrilled with the OL as the GM was. Osemele was a fine addition, but the line isn't good overall. They're starting a backup center and next year both tackles are UFAs. The biggest splashes in FA went to the defense even after hiring an offensive-minded HC (not just Mosely, but don't forget the 2nd-biggest splash was to be Barr not Bell, and it's possible there is no Bell if the Barr signing went through). 

Like Anderson. But between the Williamses and Anderson, you are spending an awful lot of cap room on DTs. And not nearly so much on the OL. When you consider Tru Johnson, Adams and Maye and the legion of other DBS Coffee Boy has amassed, that is a ridiculous misallocation of resources. Said it over and over; DBs aren DL guys who do not get to the QB are overhead in 2019. Yet this idiot devoted the bulk of his chips to those groups.

The Jets, at no time in the near past or future, were ever going to be "the most attractive job in the league. It's a dumpster fire and everyone knows it. 

Unless ownership changes,objectively  this is never going to be an attractive job. It's how you end up with Rex Ryan (unhireable by the Ravens who new him) and an incompetent like Todd Bowles. Or Herman Edwards. It's why Bellichick ran away, and  it's why Parcells quit.

When a  coach took the job against Bellichick's wishse and then stuck his neck out for this franchise like Mangini did first  with spygate and then going along with Favre, they fired him anyway. That did not go unnoticed.

The Johnsons are 2 lucky sperm club Richie Riches who flit from one bad idea to the next. Doesn't preclude them from getting it right, makes it a lot harder though. Today probably has nothing to do with football, and the timing is awful. But Coffee Boy deserved this axe for a very long time. Hiring Douglas and thisngs could turn around.

That's sexual harassment and he doesn't have to take it.

Have no knowledge,pure speculation:  because this was so rash wonder if there weren't some other kind of workplace considerations for this to happen so suddenly. The Johnsons are scared to death of any negative PR.
