The Return of Woody: November 2020

Recommended Posts

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson is reportedly expected to return to the team from his diplomatic role overseas in November of 2020.

The New York Jets franchise is a miserable mess of masochism right now and that all boils down to the ownership.

Sure, it’s easy to blame head coach Adam Gase or the past front offices who constructed this roster, but incompetency within an organization is often a product of incompetence at the very top. And that goes for all businesses, not just sports.

The Jets suffer from that and they have for years. And even when owner Woody Johnson took a temporary leave of absence in January of 2017 to take on the role of the United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom, little ultimately changed.

His brother, Christopher Johnson, assumed full-time ownership of the Jets and while he does appear to have a stronger relationship with the players than Woody did, it’s clear that the issues still remain.

That said, Christopher’s time as the owner could soon be coming to an end — perhaps as soon as November of next year.

Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network has reported that Woody is expected to return as the full-time owner of the New York Jets in November of 2020, regardless of the results of the election. That last part is the important part as it supposedly guarantees that Johnson will return, barring unforeseen circumstances. And Woody may very well return to a franchise in a state of pure misery.

The Jets have limped their way to a 1-7 record this season and there appear to be very few reasons for optimism.

Gase has come under heavy scrutiny for his handling of the team’s offense — mainly young quarterback Sam Darnold — and when looking at the results, it’s hard to think he’s the right man for the job.

And there is still a good chance — unfortunately — that Gase is the team’s head coach upon Woody’s return from the United Kingdom. If that’s the case, it might be Woody who is tasked with the ultimate decision of firing him or retaining him at the end of next season.

Even if Gase is let go at the end of 2019, Woody will still return with a new head coach and a general manager fresh off his first offseason with the team. If things fail to improve, he will have to make some tough decisions.

Johnson purchased the team back in 2000 and has received mixed reviews, to say the least, from fans and media members alike. But it’s hard to look at the state of the team right now and think that he could do any more damage than what has already been done.

I'd post a gif of someone freaking out and crying in a panic, but after two or so years of Chris Johnson, I really don't think it matters.

He’s gonna bring those smooth negotiating tactics he learned from his flawless Brexit experience back to Florham Park, baby. 

It's really a shame for him, too, because he just figured out how to charge his phone with those newfangled outlets they have over in the UK.

woody is not the answer. No johnson is. too bad godell sucks up to him. woody should not be allowed back. after all he just ran out of town when he was given his current glam post by trump

 

They were born with silver spoons. they never had to compete in the real world. they have servants, they do not stand in line. they never ran a biz. and its mommies money any way. some freakin toy

we all suffer while they play and ruin the team.

My initial impression was that Chris was a breath of fresh air as a replacement for Woody.

Chris then proceeded to extend Mac and Bowles, fire Bowles, fire Mac, hire Gase and hire Douglas and Co.  I still believe the last one will work out.  

I don't know what to say here, other than the best answer would be that Woody will sell his and his family's interest in the team before he comes home.

Would you Sell an Investment that appreciates about $200,000 PER DAY?  And that’s Win or Lose.  Makes no difference because if you own a NY sports franchise it’s like a license to print money.  The worst example is the Knicks with everyone’s favorite “Blues” band leader and troll as owner...Jets a close second.

Seems strange he'd leave now. He's just now really getting the hang of speaking the native language there in the UK.

Can we lock him up in the Tower of London? And throw in Chris too?

Off with their heads.

Heres how it will go:

So that Chris does not feel picked on Gase will remain for another horrid season. In January, Johnson will fire Gase and hire the hottest DC on the marketplace to be HC, then in April we will draft the "best player in the draft" a run stuffing DL

Can Woody talk Trump into buying the Jets?

Pretty sure he tried to buy a team.  Owners didn't want him in the league.

Yes.  That’s why he got involved in the USFL

 

I don’t think he could afford more than a 1% minority piece of a nfl franchise anyway
