Well dam! Just how bad is our rep around the league?

I actually think the Johnsons are pretty decent people and that is one element of why they have struggled.

They may or may not be. But I don't think anyone ever criticized the Johnson's for being jerks.

They have been criticized for being incompetent.

The saying nice guys finish last is an expression for a reason.

Maybe not jerks but chaotic inept incompetents and their were hints of toxic ness.  I point to a guy like Greeny.  He has become an incessant apologist and defender of millionaire players. He plays the player victim card more than anyone; especially as a whole does and is right there.  So this summer with the whole Jamal saga, while most level headed folks called Adam’s for what he was, greeny attacked the jets and ownership and gase and created a perception of disfunction.

 I don’t think saleh was necessarily referring to anything specific but rather the general perception.  Yea the  perception of being losers is very fair and having hired bad people is also fair.  But guys like greeny and media took it much further.

fwiw, I find greenys whole players are victims narrative beyond ridiculous.

The biggest thing that concerns me about Saleh is his assessment of the Johnsons. But then again, he's probably just saying nice things cuz they sign the checks. Hopefully, this is all just about JD.

i don't see why the johnsons get such a bad rap all the time.  they poured money into the facility and even though they share a stadium they poured money into that too.  and when they've hired coaches and gm's they've given them pretty long leashes.  with the exception of tebow and favre, i don't think the johnsons actively campaigned for any particular player and who really knows the story behind those guys.  they've just been unlucky at hiring stand up people to run the team.  i'd sure like to know why tanny was forced out.

It's nice that he "picked the Jets" but until the Jags went with Urban Meyer he didn't sign.  Doesn't that kind of indicate we may have been second choice?  It may have just been based on income tax, but it sure seemed he was waiting on Jacksonville.

So much so that when Saleh went to get into his car service ride to head off to Florida for his interview with the Eagles, he texted his wife, Sanaa: Honey, if they call, we’re going to New York. They later called and, in a twist befitting Saleh’s good feeling for the organization, he did more than take the job—he actively chose the Jets.

You remember the trouble Woody got himself into in London? I wouldn't characterize him as a good guy. Also, his associations with high ranking officials bring up red flags. I wish he would stay away permanently. Chris, on the other hand seems like a really nice guy.

The Zoom call was different? Must have done some Breakout Room activities. Maybe even a poll. 

JD probably had some subconscious Eastern Mediterranean cuisine images sprinkled in throughout the zoom call that Saleh could not resist.

Probably had one of those professional looking green screens to make it look like he was conducting the meeting from Fiji or some sh*t. Douglas playing chess while everyone else plays checkers.

I'd also like to point out that the above is a fantastic ******* joke, and if your job doesn't demand that you have to experience the excruciating pain of endless Zoom in order to get it, I am envious of you.

No. If he thought that, he wouldn't have taken the job.

You're lucky if you only have the one platform.  We bounce from skype, TEAMS, Zoom, webex and google meet based on level of security concerns and if we have too many people online for some of the usual suspects to work properly.  The constant platform shifts are a huge cluster****.

“A lot of the interviews, you go through it, and you’re like, Huh, that’s exactly what people told me it was gonna be,” Saleh told me late Friday. “When I walked into the Jets [interview], the Zoom call, it was like, Oh, that wasn’t that bad. I was expecting something different. I was expecting something disorganized. Instead, what I got was a very organized interview, a very collaborative interview. It felt like it was done really, really well by them.

I'm almost surprised he'd even admit this in an interview even though it's clearly true.

Props to Joe Douglas.
