I believe until they are eliminated 

Not for Jet selfish reasons but the NFL needs to figure out how to make coaching vacancies fair for all teams and candidates.   Unless there is some under the table deal in place, often teams cannot wait until after a team is eliminated to hire a coach.  And a candidate should not be at a disadvantage either for coaching opportunities.  While I do understand that no one wants one of their coaches on interviews while preparing for a playoff game, it still unfair.

Come up wish a solution that is fair and transparent to all.

Latest I've heard is that a person of interest thinks 49ers DC Robert Saleh will land the job. They cautioned that they haven't been told anything and that the primary decision makers have been pretty

Sounds like he impressed at the very least, but I'm not sure how he fits what the Jets are ultimately looking for. Maybe he can, and maybe he's showing that more in interviews, but from what we know h

Who tf cares? He’s giving us info that gives us something to talk about. No different then someone posting a dumb LaConfora tweet.  If you don’t believe it, move on.

Kinda hoping Jets draft Wilson and Schefter comes back saying “Well fk, that’s surprising”.

Well the Saleh era is off to a fantabulous start.

The thing to me is why would they commit so early to Sam? What has he done to deserve that? I'm sure by the time the Jets can interview and workout the draft prospects things will change...

They aren’t committing to anything. I think they’ll go through the process but ultimately both the coach and the GM believe in building around the position, Douglas is a big believer in Sam, and they believe LaFleur can tap into his potential. If Wilson blows them away maybe they change their mind, but going into the offseason the expectation should be Darnold

Jets will trade down with the Carolina Panthers, possibly 49ers. Wouldn’t it be ironic if the 3rd round picks they got for Saleh getting hired were traded to the Jets in a package for #2? 

Ultimately see Darnold coming back

I must say, I was very much “Darnold has to go, draft a QB” and was stringent in it. 
 

however, I feel like all your perspective on it (in terms of how the front office, or NFL GMs in general) see him and how they see how the roster would work has brought me along where I can accept not drafting the QB now, and running with Darnold again under a Shanahan system. So cheers for that! 
 

as for the Panthers/49ers craic, is that based on stuff you’ve heard (like, you’ve heard they trying to move up) or just personal opinion/guess work?

I think their plan TODAY is to keep Sam, but I would be absolutely shocked if the Jets do not take QB at #2. There is way too many reasons the Jets need to do that. We need the GM, HC and QB all on the same page. Darnold is not they guy.

I am fine with this.  If qualified football people like Douglas, Saleh, and LaFleur think Darnold can be turned around with a functional system and a set of playmakers, bring it on.

The haul we can get for #2 without worrying about a QB in the mix can turn us around much faster.

Kind of wish it it would have been left up in the air longer..  was hoping to see these guys heads explode on draft night when a trade was announced.

Hope Arthur Smith left with a good impression as perhaps he'll be the one convincing whoever the next Falcons GM is to give up a haul to move up and grab Wilson.

Heard Carolina. The two finalists for that GM job are close to Joe Douglas, especially Monti, which could get the ball rolling on brokering a deal. The owner (Tepper) has given Rhule freedom to do whatever he wants, but I'm sure he wants a QB. If they don't trade up I think Trey Lance is their guy so we'll see.

49ers I haven't heard but I just think it makes sense. They're 1 piece away, and that piece is the QB.

SORE I

“Adam” Gaze is fired!  First choice Saleh is hired!  Bills win their first playoff game!

Will SORE I ever be right?  EVER?

He is right about those Allbirds though. The Men's Tree Dashers are nice.

Maybe you and @Mogglezcould verify something I heard last year.......Rhule withdrew because he didn't like Sam as the QB. The coach forcing stuff was Jets PR cover.

Just another small angle here. Since this is LaFlauer's first NFL OC opportunity and to call plays, perhaps the thought is go with Sam for a year and see what happens. It will allow LaFluer to work with a 3 year QB who has a year of experience in primarily the same system compared to going with a rookie QB and OC/playcaller.

Then why would he even interview?  And especially to go that far along in the interview process?  Everyone knew Darnold wasn't going anywhere.
