as a Sewell at 2 fan, this is a silver lining of the Johnson's not knowing what a sunk cost is 

what's the worst that happens they take an All Pro tackle and find an identity

Fair point.  The concern is that the Jets end up exactly where Philly is right now if they exercise the 5th year option or extend Sam.  They have an expensive QB that's difficult to unload and they're drafting in No Man's Land between say 8 and 15 the next few years with no real ability to find Sam's replacement.

How about Fields at #2 and Sam Cosmi or Alex Leatherwood later in Round 1?  There's also no reason you couldn't also keep Sam in this scenario.  The Jets extended Sanchez (without a big commitment) while also drafting Geno Smith.  The Eagles extended Wentz and drafted Hurts.  Why not use some of the huge Cap space for 2022 to exercise Sam's 5th year option, gaining a bit of time and leverage, while also drafting someone like Fields?

No worries.  This is classic good cop, bad cop.  Owner says all the nice things, Joe Douglas steps up behind Joe Pesce with the gun in the empty room from Goodfellas.  

Just listened to the whole presser. The problem now is that Joe Douglas has gone from the quiet nerd in the background to being the front man and the guy responsible for hiring the new head coach

Douglas will speak eventually, who gives a flying you-know-what about when it is?  He’s in the middle of putting in requests and figuring out guys he wants to target today, let Johnson handle the pres

i don't know how anyone can say this?  parcells and the bellichicken certainly took an interest in the offense even though they were defense guys. i'm not sure where john harbaugh came from but he was the special teams coach before becoming head coach.  this whole ceo designation is getting people tied up in knots.  to me it just means the next coach is going to be more of an overseer.  he not necessarily going to be calling offensive or defensive plays.  this is a good thing.

Parcells had Charlie Weis call and design the offense and Belichick call and design the defense.  Not sure I can imagine seeing a new HC like Daboll not being more like a Gase where he focuses on the offense and his DC is almost like an equal...

I suspect Harbaugh doesn't even get a call.  Douglas is going to hire someone he, or Rex Hogan is familar with.

Didnt they report that Harbaugh and Michigan were near an extension through 2026?

JOE DOUGLAS is the true ALPHA MALE FOOTBALL GUY that this franchise needed.

The ultimate catalyst

He trimmed the fat.

He forced the fake news journalist to be banished from the NFL.

He traded/cut the malcontents like Adams/Bell when they were alienated by their HC.

He fired the meek, bookworm pencil pusher that was Adam Gase who couldnt connect with the whole team.

He aced his first draft and masterfully played the board like a RESPECTED GM.

Leave the keys in the hands of the true FOOTBALL personnel GUY,  the ALPHA LEADER of the franchise. 

He is the KRYPTONITE of the eeyore SOJ "fans" that thrive and consume misery 24/7.

SOJ fans hate him and everything he does.

In other words he is exactly what the Dr ordered.

He really should just keep quiet. This is the same idiot who called Gase an offensive genius a few months ago. 

The only time we need to hear from him is when he introduces the new HC.

"The book hasn't been written on Sam."

They said the same thing about Hackenberg right before they got rid of him.

He's referring to his check book....  my understanding is he also said It won't be his decision... :)

This. If new HC or JD get rid of Sam, then it’s a signal the owners are staying out of it.

The fact that Douglas didnt run the call today leads me to believe nothing is really changing. How was he not involved in this? 

I hope it's because he's too busy doing real work.

Communications is real work. Arguably the most important.

More important than organizing the search for the HC?

Please tell me you're being sarcastic.

"I’m a huge fan of Sam. I think he’s a great QB,” Johnson said, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. “I think he has wonderful talent and drive and leadership. I don’t think the book has been written on Sam. He has a very big future. And I personally hope it’s on this team. That’s what I told him after the game: I hope he is a Jet going forward. But that decision will be made by Joe Douglas and our new coach. That’s about as definitive as I can get on Sam.”

The most concerning part of this quote is that he told Darnold personally he wants him to stay a Jet. This could have been dismissed as just standard talk to hype his trade value until he revealed his personal conversation with Darnold. This is not good. When Joe talks to the media I fully expect him to say Sam Darnold is the starting QB in 2021. Typical Jets investing in sunk cots basing decision on value they gave up for previous mistakes instead of moving on.

There is nothing bad about this. Our owner can be a fan. As long as Douglas and the new coach are making the decisions, that is progress.
