That a large cohort of fans is, predictably, letting Manish Mehta tell them what to think.

I've been in the sh*t for 15 years, 3 tours. Broke in on the front line of the war on Penningtology back on Scout and was deployed to JI when the war escalated. Dont think I've ever recovered. To this day my PTSD kicks in when someone even mentions completion %

These days I root primarily for what will cause the most bitching here. 

Don't listen to CTM. He knows very little. 

Jets fans like me have the thousand yard stare. A Jets fan gets it after he's been in the sh*t for too long. It's like you're really seeing beyond. I got it. All real Jets fans got it. And you'll have it, too.

This place is bonkers right now.   I can barely even post. 

 I am a pessimist by nature.  And while I am concerned by the appearance of chaos around Darnold when what he needs is stability, I really believe everything is going to be fine when this team hits the field...  except for cornerback. 

It's May.

LOL  More people worrying about us as a fan base when we are at odds and going off the rails when times are good let alone when times are bad vs an actual event that seriously affects the team.

Good post.

I'm having a hard time understanding the crowd that's been given just about everything it has wanted for the past 12 months and is still finding things to violently complain about.  Sure, the firing wasn't perfect and looks a little messy, but how often are firings a pleasant experience that everyone agrees with?

There's a chorus of Jets fans that has been asking for Bowles to be fired (done), hiring an offensive-minded HC (done), getting Darnold some offensive weapons (done) and firing Maccagnan (done), etc.  We've got people getting the precise Christmas gift they've wanted.....and they're b!tching about the wrapping paper.  Oh well, I don't get it.

I agree. Clean house, hire a new GM, let the GM hire a new coach. All the Jets did was create chaos with doing this ass backwards. We're not dealing with rocket science here.

The fan reaction has zero effect on the performance of the team. The Gase-Mac War and resultant action will, Let's just hope that the effect is ultimately a positive one.

The fans. Everyone knew the guy should have been fired along with Bowles 2 years ago. The timing is stupid but keeping him around even longer only compounds the stupidity. You realize the talking heads who work on ESPN/Radio/Jets Beat don't like or give a sh*t about the team? Now that these titans of clickbate are complaing cause they lost Mac as source, all for a guy who'd like to go Mad Queen on them, you dopes are upset.

I voted for the second option, but honestly both. Mac should have been fired with Bowles 2 years ago.

Fans here just have to have something to complain about and right now its Mac being fired because of "insert excuse"..

 

Mac was bad, deserved to be fired long ago. lets move along....

I mean, I don't care what the fans think.

This was an embarrassing bungling of the situation by the organization. The obvious move was to fire Maccagnan along with Bowles in December. They stuck with him and allowed him to shape the roster then fired him after the coach he interviewed staged a coup -- and all of this was a product of the inane management structure the Johnsons have implemented in the first place which they are apparently continuing to roll with.

There are certainly fans who are overly negative and hate everything the team does but I find it baffling anyone could objectively not think the way this played out was idiotic.

So it seems.

So should I put you in the camp of wanting to keep Maccagnan longer just so that the Jets could fire him "at the right time" after the 2019 season, when they can compete for a GM along with 5 to 7 other teams?

The Jets DESERVE the criticism - no matter where it is originating from, CASE CLOSED!!

Gase has done absolutely NOTHING to merit the Johnson's  entrusting him with personnel moves or front office management decisions.

But that would put some of these fools on record and hurt their feelings the way the Macc firing did.

Option 3:

 

Having our quarterback, and having some very solid pieces added in FA and the draft allowing us to hopefully think we are about to turn the corner and contend, only to come crashing back down to being viewed as the circus, and feeling like we are back to square one,.

Nope.  You can put me in the camp that would have fired Macc years ago, or at the least, at the end of last season along with Bowles.

Folks can spin this any way they like, the Jets organization didn't handle it correctly. 

The outcome is fine (well, we'll see who they hire....), the methodology was horrendous and speaks to an ongoing fundamental mishandling of the organization and it's assets by the men in charge at the top.

Combine with the fact that Gase in no way shape or form warrants any GM title of any kind no matter how short-tenured, and yeah, there are legitimate reasons to be critical of how the move was made.  How.  Not that it was made.
