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.

Have a hard time seeing the Lions not going for Saleh. From Michigan, and the Fords, while as dumb as the Johnsons, have larger gobs of money. Seems obvious.

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.

 

 

good point!

For this to work out I would think we would need Bienemy to not get a HC job. It sounded like Kafka was next in line for the Chiefs OC and nobody in their right mind would pass on that for the same position with the Jets.

good point but maybe he would to have more autonomy instead of being a "coffee fetcher" like the cool kids here say....

Just a tiny bit of food for thought IF Saleh somehow becomes the next Jets HC.  One of his first tasks after assembling a staff will be to work with JD on the approach at QB, whether to keep Darnold, take someone at #2, etc.  Let's remember that Saleh defended against Sam Darnold in Week 2 vs. the 49ers, a 31-13 victory for SF.  Here is how Sam did...

The positive here isn't that Sam played bad or played well.  It is that Saleh had a firsthand look at Darnold, prepared for a week for the Jets O, stood on the sideline with a front row seat to see how Darnold played.  Whether that would help or hurt Darnold I have no idea, but it will help the Jets in their decision-making and that's the most important thing.

If you like the rah-rah emotional sideline prancer, the Pete Carroll 1994 type, he's your man.

Updated List:

Pederson:  Yes
Daboll:  Yes
Brady:  Yes

Glenn:  Yes
---------
Bienemy:  NO
Lewis:  NO
Mullen:  NO
Martindale:  NO
---------
Graham:  Declined
Harbaugh:  Declined
Campbell:  Declined

Pete Carroll was not given a fair shake here.....      Saleh, gave me pause but after reading his bio, Im good.

I think the Jets are a more attractive opening than the Eagles at this particular moment in time.  Feel free to call me a homer.

The Eagles are definitely the worst HC opening. 75 million over the cap, QB controversy, old team, bad drafts, power hungry GM and irrational owner.

here’s a very good but very long read on Saleh by SI. Assuming it’s already been posted before but definitely worth a look if you haven’t read it. 

great Read long but very much worth a glimpse of our possible HC. Article make me even want him more now worked his way with Grit and determination and never wavered I'm down for this hire.

We should anyway. 

Why?  Unless you just prefer grass, which wont happen because of two teams playing on it, after the early concerns it didnt seem to play any different that any other turf field
