Always seemed to me like an easy scapegoat during this 12 year playoff draught. Has Woody been perfect? No. Has Woody been a terrible owner? I would also argue no. Lets take an unbiased look at his record. 1) Buys the Jets in January of 2000. 2) In his first 3 years as owner, Jets do not have a losing record. Brings in Herm Edwards after first season as GM after stop gap coach Al Groh is let go by Johnson. 3) Herm Edwards teams make playoffs 3 out of 5 seasons (imagine that Jet fans) with two double digit win seasons. 4) After a bad 4-12 5th year at the helm, brings in Mangini, a much talked about hire at the time. Makes playoffs first year, bad second season, actually a winning record 9-7 in his 3rd year but no playoffs, let go. 5) Johnson hires Rex Ryan! Takes team to AFC Championship twice! Only 2 losing seasons in 6 seasons at helm. Makes right call and lets go of Rex after 6 seasons. 6) Hired Todd Bowles, a MUCH praised hire in 2015, team goes 10-6 and then lets him fledge around for 3 more seasons. 7) Takes UK ambassadrship and Chris Johnson hires Gase. 8. Brother hires Saleh. Since his return it has looked like Joe Douglas still makes football decisions and coach seems to have alot of flexibility, even so much as to bench the number 2 pick in season 2. All that aside, seems to pay contacts when asked, built a state of the art facility in Florham Park and has no crazy scandals (see Commanders) etc to speak of. What do you mean by meddling? Like an owner who doesnt have any interest in the team? Thats not going to happen. He owns the ****ign team. Does he do press conferences every game like JJ in Dallas or a physocpath like the guy in Carolina or DC? What meddling? How is this guy such a bad owner. Seems like lazy analysis to me. What is our record under Woody?? He is 151 L 123 W He has had 7 HC's, multiple GM's. Has never had a solid answer at QB in his tenure. 22 years and the most important position in all of sports, his management team can't find one. He left his team to be run by his very unaccomplished brother so he could be an ambassador Haven't been to the playoffs since 2010 Won 10 or more games only 4 times Below 500 7 years in a row, 12 in total Has not been able to surround himself with football minded men. How any one could look at this and think the team is in good hands must be under 45 and grew up where all kids got a trophy. His tenure is not even mediocre. It is so far below average it is scary. He is amongst the worst 6-8 owners in the league based on facts. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
