That’s because the “other guy in the room” was Maccagnan.  So CJ did know more than the other guy.  

Don’t fear being wrong. You took a swing based on legitimate info; and apparently it’s what is being heard around the league. Kudos to you, regardless of what happens. 

According to Ian Rapoport and Peter Schrager, Saleh arrived last night and met with some of the people from the Jets organization and is now meeting with Christopher Johnson this morning.  He wil

Wow, Jetsrule has aged.

The irony of this is, Jets rule is still doing the same shtick, and he’s gotta be at least 30 now.

It all sounds promising at this point. He either signs today, or he flies out to explore other opportunities.

If he leaves the building, he's not coming back and the Jets will move on to their next target.

second update: I did a little research and Saleh and Lafleur are both from Michigan as in born there.

Lafleur is 34 years old and is obviously the dude from Green Bay's little brother and he is listed as the passing game / wide receiver specialist

Agreed and the piece will repeat every hour. They made it a point to emphasize that it's known league-wide that he will be getting a  head coaching job, and the Jets should learn from past mistakes like with Kliff Kingsbury. If he's there guy Jump On It

What PFN is hearing about Robert Saleh and the NY Jets

“They have several candidates they are looking at. If it’s a defensive guy they ultimately hire, you’re talking about somebody that is going to have to have a plan for a strong offensive coordinator to come with him,” Allbright said. “If it’s Robert Saleh, that’s probably gonna be Mike LaFleur — Matt LaFleur’s brother — or Mike McDaniel… if you do bring in Saleh, it probably means you stick with Sam Darnold for a year…Saleh could be the guy. I don’t know if he’s the heavy favorite right now, but he’s in the mix.”

Allbright emphasized that Saleh’s offensive coordinator would likely be Mike McDaniel over Mike LaFleur. Allbright also mentioned that the team had previously reached out to Bills OC Brian Daboll and Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy. However, he doesn’t believe either will be strongly considered for the job.

“If you get a defensive coordinator or a defensive guy up there, he’s got to bring a strong offensive candidate to really sell that group,” added Allbright. “Because the Sam Darnold thing really hinges with this pick and what they are going to do — whether they take a quarterback at 2 or trade back and keep Darnold, which is Joe Douglas’ preferred idea.”

Note: You can listen to Allbright talking about the latest on what he’s hearing in the video above. Don’t forget to visit and subscribe to the PFN YouTube Channel for more.

 

Jets’ GM believes Robert Saleh can help Sam Darnold

In a previous episode of PFN Weekly, Allbright mentioned that Jets General Manager Joe Douglas is a firm believer in Sam Darnold. This means that Joe Douglas would likely prefer his first head coach hire to be a guy who he believes can help Sam Darnold become a true franchise quarterback.

Bringing in a coach who believes in Darnold would also allow Douglas to trade out of the second overall pick and accumulate more draft picks. Allbright reports that this is something that Douglas would like to do.

If it’s Saleh, with Mike McDaniel as his offensive coordinator, that means a Kyle Shanahan-style offense, which tends to be quarterback friendly. Saleh has flown in for his second interview already. Right now, he looks like, at the very least, a finalist for the job as the next Jets head coach.

A look into Robert Saleh’s time with the San Francisco 49ers

Saleh has been the defensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers from 2017 to 2020. He’s turned the 49ers’ defense into one of the best units in the league through that time period.

In 2016, before Saleh’s arrival, the 49ers’ defense distinguished itself in a different way. They ranked dead last in the NFL in average yards allowed per game. They were the only team in the league to allow over 400 total yards per game on average, and they were also the only defense in the NFL to allow over 30 points per game.

Robert Saleh provided an immediate boost in his debut season with San Francisco

In 2017, his defense ranked 24th in the NFL in total yards allowed per game, eight spots higher than the previous year. They also saw a massive decrease in points allowed per game, from 30.0 to 23.9. Saleh’s growth continued in 2018, but things didn’t truly come together until 2019. In that season, Saleh once again helped his team reach the Super Bowl.

The 49ers’ defense has been competitive and feisty under his tenure. He has been instrumental in unlocking DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead, and Fred Warner in San Francisco. His track record of player development, dating back to the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans, is impressive.

In 2020, Saleh’s 49ers’ defense ranked sixth in total DVOA, despite losing key players like Buckner, Nick Bosa, and many others.

Saleh’s fit as the head coach of the New York Jets

The Jets’ defensive line was arguably the best part of the team in 2020. Players like Quinnen Williams and John Franklin-Myers really broke out and put out encouraging tape. Considering Saleh’s emphasis on the defensive line in San Francisco, this bodes well for his potential future defenses in New York.

Perhaps the most critical part is Saleh’s offensive connections. As Allbright mentioned, Mike McDaniel would be Robert Saleh’s pick at offensive coordinator. McDaniel is the run game coordinator for San Francisco and is a bright offensive mind. McDaniel has worked with plenty of positions and has been Kyle Shanahan’s understudy for several seasons now.

Kyle Shanahan’s run game is regarded as genius. This takes a lot of pressure off the quarterback and makes his scheme “QB-friendly”. Obviously, that’s something Joe Douglas will consider with Sam Darnold in mind.

Let’s get this guy & his cronies. I absolutely love what the 49ers do in their running game! 
Build the Oline, protect Sam (we are not starting a rookie in 2021), even if we draft one. 
This could be like an Alex Smith/Mahomes type of situation. Rookie QB sits for a year.

I think McDaniel is the higher rated and more experienced coach, but there is the Michigan/family connection with LaFleur so either guy could get the call.

Bring them both lol...

Why is Kingsbury a mistake? He was a Hail Mary away from a losing record

It's not my personal opinion that klingsbury was a mistake, they were just making a reference to it on gmfb. I would imagine that the Jets liked klingsbury but didn't realize there's only five freaking jobs available and they can't take their sweet time. The point is if this is your guy get it done.

I know...it’s just tough to convince my brain of that.  Whatever happens, happens I guess.  I gotta try and not sweat it too much.

I don’t know how people do this for a living lmao.  It’s way too stressful.

Don’t sweat it. Thanks for, if nothing else keeping this site on the edge of their seat and interested in what you do hear/share.

Not sure why you or that footballguy care if you're wrong..  you heard something if its right great if not who cares.

Guys like @Jetsfan80 are wrong way more often than they're right.  He keeps his head down and spewing misinformation.  Accuracy be damned.

Lol, I think it’s more about letting everyone else here down.  I know it sounds corny, but it’s just my anxiety.  Nothing more, nothing less.
