Robert Saleh Interview Discussion : MERGED


Recommended Posts

Agreed, but guessing and predicting are what discussion forums are for.  We'll be off Saleh and into the next Candidate Of The Moment tomorrow, it's how it works.

Jason Garrett is looking better and better to me.  Dak, Zeke, Dez, a Top 10 offense for a decade, can handle a vicious media and ornery fans.  He lives in NJ too.

Agree that guessing and predicting is part of the game. But the ironclad statements that "it's over with Saleh" or "Jets lost their man" are not predictions. They are ghosts formed by an incorrect analysis of the situation.

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

Daboll, Saleh, Garrett, Pederson.
Those are my Top 4 in any order you prefer.  Offensive guys, two of them proven playoff winners and leaders in big fishbowl markets, two of them hot coordinators that most NFL experts believe are going to be great.

Oh please no Garrett

ANYONE and I repeat ANYONE is better than Adam Gase.

No No No.  Everyone keeps saying that.  For every HC after the Jets have fired them.   Same is said about every Jets QB too.   Yet every one sucks just as bad.   I don't know if Saleh will make a good HC.   I think he would be, but I also think there are other good coaches too.   

 

Joe Douglas said this would be a long search.   Yet everyone is freaking out about first coach seriously interviewed.   

 

Besides if Jets hired Saleh, he would suck and every Jets fan would scream at CJ and Joe Douglas about not doing a thorough job in interviews, rushing to judgement and hiring the first bum that come along

I’m actually enjoying every minute of this hiring process.

i dont understand this, we completed the interview, but didnt hire him so its a no go according to you? is that what Is supposed to take from this? I mean i get it, it would be nice is he signed up but just because he left the building does that mean we dont want him?

Perhaps more talk is needed? Like ok evrerything sounds great let me talk it over with my wife etc stuff or maybe Joe is like let me talk with the owners etc..

 

I know I dont think it 100 percent is RIP...

Maybe I missed something in the news?

Agreed, I would feel much better if he wasnt going to Philly

Pretty aligned. Disagree on Roman but what do I know lol

Roman is a tough one he has done well to redesign an offense to suit his QB.  I have a tough time getting over the fact that they have the worst rated passing offense in the league, worse than the jets.  Sooner or later you have to pass to win in this league.

Well even if Jets didn't want Saleh or Saleh didn't want them, you still have 3 potential winning tickets :)

we are on a collision course with Pederson or Schitty

It's a good point. The Lamar regression is real although it's almost impossible not to regress after an MVP season.

Douglas was never bringing Harbaugh here. 

Let it go.

People need to calm down. Many of the best HC hires were guys who were not the HOT candidate when hired.  Maybe I remember wrong, but I don't think a bunch of teams were in competition for McDermott, Flores or Judge. And all 3 seem to be pretty darn good hires.

Roman designed the offense around Lamar’s skill set.  He only usually attempts 25-30 passes a game

Yea let me pass on one of 7 available jobs paying millions of dollars because I’m curious what the guy down the street has to say. 


I do believe he is the one HC candidate currently being vetted league wide that is pretty much guaranteed one of the 7 slots. He may see himself as having considerably more leverage than most candidates in past years. I’m also guessing that he doesn’t have it too bad in his current situation as DC is SF.

JD picked his guy, the one every team wanted.   Got him to come in and spend the night.  One quick meeting with CJ to finalize and settle on compensation.   
 

CJ screwed it up

 

if I was JD I would quit.    Just walk away

Well, you know more than I know then, again.

With that information, this should be wrapped up within 48 hours. One way or the other. 

Psst, I get tingly too.

Better ownership, better roster, probably offering a better number

I don't think many exec/coach types would agree the Eagles are in a better spot roster wise going forward.

I know it is hard to believe but we are one of the best landing spots for a new head coach. 

If you have a plan that includes in-person interviews with a few finalists, you don't scrap that plan because you fall in love during the first in-person interview. That is called desperation.

I think this may be different pre-covid where all interviews were in person - but that isn't reality right now. 

It is not the popular choice, especially with the media yelling "if he's number one don't let him leave!" But I think you have to see the plan through without fear of losing out on someone. 

I applaud JD for sticking to the plan.

If this is the plan then I applaud him too.  But if JD conducts two or three other in-person interviews and then determines he wants Saleh, and Saleh has taken a job someplace else then that would be really unfortunate.

Maybe you've been lucky in your career and hit your dream company on day one but those of us who have been through many, many interviews knows that it just doesn't work this way.

It's not often that a coach gets the chance to be HC of an NFL franchise. If he liked the Jets job, he'd be foolish not to take it.  These jobs don't grow on trees.  And the Jets job, with Douglas and the draft picks and the cap space, is a good job right now.  He would get a 4-5 year contract worth between $30-40 milling. He'd be set for life financially and will have attained his lifetime goal.

If he walks away and then doesn't get another offer, he may never be in this position again.  He's not walking away because he has other interview commitments.  He's walking away because the deal wasn't closed one way or another.  The Jets did 8 interviews already and Saleh has interviewed with other teams already.  He spent parts of two days here.  Everybody in the NFL community thought he was signing here.  Something went wrong.

Or he's walking away and taking the Jets' offer to mull it over for 12-24-36-48 hours whatever.

Ok using last time around for context...

 

Still think this is a different situation because of the virtual interviews and Saleh being here two days, but maybe it will follow a similar pattern. 

I could be wrong but my impression of the 2 days thing is more so the timing of when he got to the facility rather than the interest they had in him.

That is not to say that they had any less interest in him as a candidate. Dont misunderstand.  What I am saying is he arrived at the facility around 8:30 at night I believe.. So a 2 hr interview with Douglas would put the time around 10:30.. so I would assume they opted to move the second portion of the meeting with ownership till today in order to let him get some sleep considering he had another interview scheduled for tonight in Philadelphia.. There also was no rush as he was going to be in this area anyway for that interview..

That is a wild conclusion based upon an inaccurate reading of the current facts.

If you say so.  They also have one of the worst cap situations in the NFL and the vast majority of the talent they do have is not young talent.

As opposed to the Jets zero talent

Here's my scenario:

Christopher (less dick, more) Johnson: "Robert what we would like to do is offe..".

(phone rings, Johnson flips it open and answers)

(meanwhile Saleh thinks "Dude has a flip phone? He's a billionaire)

CJ: Yes?

Joe Douglas (on phone) "Mr Johnson, Matt Campbell just called. He said he thinks he's interested"

CJ: "Yes"  (flips phone shut, and turns to Saleh)

CJ: "sorry, what I was saying was that we would like to offer you a token for the buss to the private terminal at Newark"

RS: "the <bleep> you say? A bus? And elephant ears on NFL is saying we are about to sign the deal. Your guy, said you love me"

CJ: (wrings hands, stares at the baby shampoo painting acoss the room

CJ" "well, yes I guess a cab is in order"

RS: (leaves shaking his head)

CJ Flips open phone and dials Woody (more dick, less) Johnson:

CJ "Woody, Campbell is interested"

WJ" " Great, but we are still paying Gase. Dont offer more than he makes now. Only 32 head coach jobs in NFL, that should be enough"
