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

Or did the Jets tell him he was a finalist for the job and they would be conducting other 2nd interviews. The reporting all along has been that the Jets planned on bringing in multiple people for 2nd interviews. 

IF an offer was indeed made, it would be reasonable for Jets to say "we will hold it open for 24/48 hours whatever, but in the meantime we will be continuing our process, you understand." The guy's not even allowed to sleep on it and discuss with his family/agent? Lol some of you guys.

It's enough to just say that I disagree. If Jets offered Saleh knows they aren't offering someone else the job within 24 hours. Never heard of a job offer with an acceptance window that closes when the interview ends.

Who said they offered anything? Isn't it quite possible that they've planned on having multiple 2nd interviews all along? That is what has been reported all along. That narrative only changed on this site.

The word "if" in my post should be self-explanatory.

This is just not accurate. If you want the job, you take the job. There are no place for feelings on professional sports. It's a cutthroat business. What if he is doing what you say but then loses out on the Jets job bc they didn't want to wait then the Eagles decide to choose someone else? It's a game of musical chairs and you don't want to be the last one standing. 

Meh. You never interviewed multiple spots knowing you're leaning towards somewhere else? Plus he's going to Philly. It's a quick stop to hear another team out and what they're offering. 

Really don't think it's unusual at all.

No I realized after I said that, he won’t be coming in till after they’re eliminated. Flying in would trigger some kind of quarantine I’m sure. 

If we really like Staley, we'd need to have a fall-back option in case some one else scoops him up early next week while we wait. Daboll, Glenn and Bieniemy of those we interviewed, or Martindale.

I didn't say that. But you're assuming they offered him the position. I'm sure they talked about contract parameters, which is standard, but offering the job is a whole other thing. How quickly their next scheduled 2nd interview is will say a lot. If it's multiple days away then they weren't planning on bringing other candidates in. If it's soon then they were. I guess we'll see.

Staley has a bunch of all pro players on defense. Aaron Donald is a monster. He's not a better choice than Saleh.

The only dude I'd take after Saleh is Joe Brady. After that, I rather just go into next year without a head coach.

I said "If Jets offered" and then offered an opinion based on that condition. Why is this unclear?

The Jaguars opening is looming. I doubt anybody under consideration for that job will agree anywhere else before that's decided.

I mean let's be honest, JD interviewed 100 people the first round... did we really think he'd pick Saleh right away and pull the trigger? I imagine we'll have another 1 or 2 second interviews, at least. It just seems to fit Douglas' style

Growing up, telling my dad “calm down” was worse than saying fu ck you. He would go apesh*t.

Exactly. Everyone get some perspective. The NFL is a fraternity. He agreed to an interview with the Eagles that had already been set up. The private jet set up by Lurie was probably already waiting for him. What goes around comes around in such a small industry. Get the reputation as someone who doesn't honor commitments and that could hurt him for jobs down the line. Could also be a negotiating tactic by Saleh even if there's mutual interest with Jets. Nothing is effed here.

Maybe they broke up. Maybe not. This is a profession and business. Do we want a coach to fall all over us and not keep other commitments, if they have been made? Do the Jets want to not conduct total due diligence and vet every candidate to the best of their ability?

If I am Chris Johnson, and JD only brings me one candidate to meet me in person, I would have to wonder if he is doing his full due diligence. If JD is owning this responsibility, do it fully. Present options. That allows comparisons to be made.
