I know it's a process but Mangini must be laughing his a$$ off at this revisionist history of him being a sensational HC and genius personnel guru..
The guy that from all published reports pushed and pushed and finally got his guy Vernon Gholston selected with the 6th pick in the first round...
and then went from the Jets to build that SB juggernaut in Cleveland
Mangini SUCKED....it's a process

Look at the Jets team he inherited from Herm in 2006:
- Terrible O-Line
- No RBs
- No QB
- Crappy defense
Then look at the team he left Rex in 2009:
- Best O-Line in football
- 2 very good RBs
- Still no QB
- The building blocks to a top defense (great NT, All-World CB, Decent LBs)
He missed the playoffs for various reasons, but there's no denying he left the team in much better shape than when he first got here.
As for pushing to get his guy, Mangini didn't have to trade picks to get his first round bust. Rex gave up picks and players for his (Sanchez).
That's ridiculous - these guy, like everyone else in the world, are looking to make the most money.
If we wanted Cowher or Gruden and willing to pay them more than anyone else they would happily come here
Tennessee Volunteer online forum fans are absolutely convinced Gruden is taking their job. They think their entire coaching search (which included literally offering the job to Charlie Strong) is a smoke screen to make the AD look like a hero when Gruden takes the job the day after Jets/Titans on MNF. Guys are nuts.
