I'll take "Screaming into my pillow until I pass out for $800 Alex"

Herm was the flim flam BBQ man. He inherited a great team, threw everyone under the bus when things didn't go swimmingly, then cratered the talent from the Parcells era teams leading to a total overha

Can someone tell me who voted for Herm so we can have that person sent to Gitmo?

Mangini never should have been fired.

The two people though flawed but who actually had a real plan in Mangini and Idzik get fired after a couple of seasons.  The awful horrible coaches and gms who from day one look like garbage all get 5 years.

The difference is that the idiot GMs and dumb coaches we’ve had here knew to suck up to the fanbase and throw Manish a bone every so often to keep the public pressure low.

If it's 2009 I'd still go Rex because he was the right coach for that roster at that time in 2009 and 2010. 

 

Otherwise I am a vote for Mangini out of that list. Not a great HC by any stretch but he at least knew how to get the GM to put together a good roster. Mangini was not some genius at scouting or roster management. He was proficient (admittedly with some clunkers) at assessing players and knew how to convince the front office to follow a functional plan. A good roster can bail out some not so good coaching and would at least get the team pointed back towards competitiveness. At a minimum Mangini would be good for two or three years to build the roster and make the team a better destination for somebody who is equally as proficient at roster input but better at coaching.

Genuine question, why isnt Mangini in a front office somewhere if he is such a big personel guy?

Politics. Look at the influence Kraft and Bill have around the league. Do the math.

Lots of good coaches end up out of the league because of networking and politics, like all walks of life.

Yep.  And few leagues have more disgusting levels of nepotism/despotism and blackballing than the NFL.  Just look what happened to Colin Kaepernick.

Even though he wasn’t listed Walt Michaels by far. He rebuilt the disaster that was the Lou Holtz Charlie Winner era made them competitive in 2 years had a brutal 1980 season but the next year had a legitimate Super Bowl contender ( Same can be said for Parcells as well)

I really believe if Hess didn't fire Michaels after the 1983 season, the Jets would have gone to a Super Bowl or two. Those teams were stacked.
