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

did not expect him to emerge as the front runner, but I like it! 

I like it too, but it doesn’t necessarily make him the front runner.

Remember, teams can’t bring coaches for in person interviews yet, if their team is still in the playoffs.

There could still be other guys they are planning to bring in.

Seems like a well respected young coach.  While I have no way of knowing if he would or would not make a good HC, I would be happy with this hire. 

And, if it did not work out, he was a tight end in college, guy looks like he could still suit up, and given the state of our TE depth chart....

That is a stunner.  In a good way. He's been my top choice for a few weeks now partly due to his potential to hire a promising young OC, but Kafka?  Giddy up.

That would be a nice combo, but if  Bienemy moves on I would think Kafka would take over the offense in KC.   Maybe he wants to get out from under Reid’s shadow (and that’s a very large shadow).

 

I'd be ok with Kafka or LaFleur as OC.  But the "source" that thinks it's Kafka is a Sirius Radio Host giving his opinion.

Remember the Lions and others may want him, if you want him you have to get off the pot

you still interview people before you hire them..

Not if you worked with him in Philly and either weren't impressed or just didnt like him.

Everyone assumes that because they were in the same building wants Pederson, likes and or is impressed with him.  I dont know why the opposite isnt an option to people

Pederson coming late to the party is an issue unless JD loves him.  If Pederson even wants to coach now

Saleh just emanates leadership and culture i think the bald-headed Duo would work well together.

Saleh was initially thought to be a lock for the #Lions. I believe it might be #Jets or bust for him. He’s made it through to Round 2, so that’s a good sign for him.

Jets or bust? Soooo we're the only ones interested? Ehhhh

Or maybe Bieniemy doest get one of the HC gigs and hes stuck behind him again

Agreed.

And the Johnson's tend to go for opposites to try to flip the culture quickly.  Saleh is the anti-Gase from a personality standpoint.  Energetic and animated vs. quiet and pensive.

If we're not going to get an experienced head coach and must choose a coordinator, this is the guy I'd prefer.

Or you can read it as the Jets are the only job hes interested in.

I love the idea that we should be scared because the Lions arent interested in Saleh though lol

"Late to the party" they interviewed Daboll yesterday and still have other guys on their list to interview

His source said It was Saleh and they we’re trying to schedule an in person interview but they had to contact the league and expected to hear back in 24-48 hrs(fell right in that timeframe too I believe)
