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

Why? You shared what you were told. If something happened in the room that changed things, that's not your fault.

I know.

It’s just a really sh*tty feeling.

There he goes 

Unfortunate.  But let's see what happens.

I think this takes his chances of being hired by the Jets from 60% down to about 15%.  Then again, Philly is just down the road and perhaps this is leverage Saleh is trying to gain.

Let's see what we hear next from the Jets regarding 2nd interviews with other guys.

Has anyone thought that maybe it is as simple as he did not do as well in a second interview?

And the theory is then they kept him around for a second day, giving him a mulligan?

If you keep him for day two its quite the opposite

So here is a hypothetical for you all.  You are the leader of a coaching search and you and your bosses have laid out the parameters before hand of how you are going to handle it that being you are going to cast a wide net and do video interviews with a 6 or 8 people.  You are then going to narrow it down to 3 finalists and have in person meetings with them and then make a final decision.  You and the search group are going to be disciplined in this approach.  You know before hand that your candidates are sought by others.

All of a sudden you get leaks that a number of other teams are very  interested in one of your top 3 guys.  If he goes for a 2nd interview you really risk losing him.

Do you stay disciplined, make sure you have in face meeting with your other two finalists or do you toss all of that out after meeting the 1st finalist and hire him in fear of losing him?

Hypothetically speaking of course.

I'm not giving up hope.  If Matt Campbell honored his commitments like this half the board would build him a statue.  Maybe he simply wants to make sure no stone is unturned and make sure he's 100% sure the Jets is the job he wants.

You’ll feel great in 2024 when Marvin Lewis gets us to 9-7 and the 7th seed. Chin up

Money - it's the Johnsons.  Going to wind up with the scraps again.  They have supplanted the Dolans as the worst owners in NY sports.  If you can't afford to compete, get the hell out.  Take your profit, sell your team to someone who wants to win.

Work those phones Mogglez! Embarrassing that you're going to keep pretending. What the hell do you get out of this?

What do you get out of being an a$$hole?

Welp

probably the usual money and staff issues 

 

The money, maybe.  The staff issues I think were more of a Maccagnan problem.  I'm not sure Joe D would be as embedded in the idea that he needs to force staff on a new HC, but who knows.

The Eagles will scoop him up.  

- Eagles chose Pederson's assistants last time, that same GM is still there

- They are in horrible cap situation

- A QB controversy with a QB on a nearly untradable contract

 

I don't think Philly is going to be a threat. I think the Chargers, Lions, and Falcons are bigger threats.

The Jets as an Organization are EMBARRASING  at times -there is just no way around it!

Please don't tell me how the Jets zeroed in on a Gase Part Deux type II HC and he was the best candidiate! :(

Aren't people overreacting? 

I like Saleh a lot as a candidate, but it had already been reported that multiple guys were in line to get second interviews. 

A lot of the stuff painting Saleh as the Jets favorite candidate seemed like speculation. 

I do agree that him leaving the building means he probably doesn't get the job, but it just feels like everyone fell in love with this guy overnight based on the hype that he was probably going to get the job. I don't remember the passion for this guy a week ago. 

Just my 2 cents. 

Exactly what I just said.  Bingo.

Nobody was this passionate about Saleh at first.  Calm down.  Jesus.  You guys hate one second, love the next second, hate the next second.  Next interview and we go from there.  

Agreed.

This should be pinned to the top of the board. I don't know what you get out of this Mogglez. Keep in mind Chris Johnson didn't meet Saleh until the next morning. Its false and embarrassing that it wont affect peoples misplaced belief in this guy

Isn't Douglas the money guy? Wouldn't be odd if he were authorized to propose a contract.
