Great to see the Tuna's other peeps doing well - question is do you want the house cleaned and cleansed? Or do you want to keep what we have? Bringing the Tuna back means Tannenbaum and Sporano stay
First of all, the three biggest issues with the team right now ( with the exception of Sanchez) is:
All three are here either because Parcells directly recommended them to Woody or in Sporano's case, his hire in Miami.
Parcells can coach football. He cannot operate in the front office of an NFL team. He can't hire coaches, he can't draft, and he is tok short-sighted to build an NFL team.
Heck, when he was in Dallas, he stripped Sean Payton of his playcalling duties. Woody, please think for your self.
Fatboy and Parcells had a falling out a few years ago. He even said so on his show. Pretty sure they never made up b/c I don't hear Fatboy slobbering over Parcells' testicles every other show anymore like he used to. If anything, the Jets hiring Parcells as the new GM with Rex still as the HC would be the ultimate FU to Mike Francesa and the entire WFAN.
Bring back the Tuna.... that's the same thing I tell my estranged wife once a month.
But the path for this team is quite clear
1 Tannenbaum Sparano and Teblow out the door NLT Monday AM
2 Mr Johnson with due diligence and consultation with current and/or former NFL personnel, other owners, executives hires a President/Director of Football Operations/ General Manager empowered with full and final say on all football matters (referred to.in the rest of this essay as The Executive)
3 The Executive will quickly evaluate the Jets coaching and all other football personnel, interview and consult with those he trusts and make decisions. If it is his decision to continue Rex Ryan as Head Coach then Rex Ryan willcontinue as Head Coach.
4.The Head Coach whether he is Rex Ryan or not will be able to assemble the Coordinators and Assistants he desires subject to final approval by the Executive.
5, Free Agency and the draft will be a joint effort of the Executive and the Head Coach but the final decisions will be made by the Executive. Coordinators and Assistants will be asked for their input and scout and work out prospects but there will be no such thing as signing or drafting a player because he's a "Westhoff guy" as has been the case. Draft picks and free agents will be treated as precious assets and not toys and snacks to be rewarded to assistants or traded away in a frivolous manner
On this firm platform the New York Jets can go forward and rebuild a successful football team we as fans can be proud of

Everything Parcells has done AG (after Giants) was a manifestation of his ego. The white knight rides into a no lose situation with reclamation projects of teams who have been in their deepest holes. He spends feverishly to acquire his type of veterans , loads up contracts and produces a dramatic turnaround w/o winning a SB. Now when the bill needs to be paid for his spending the Tuna jumps ship and heads to the next can't lose situation. But yet people want to put him on a mantle for this. Again I have no problem giving him his kudos for his term with the Giants , after that its been a big smokescreen fueled by the media and his ego.
I can even argue that a team with as many 1 st rounders and high priced vets should be an elite defense even without the genius Defensive coach.
Most coaches that regress 3 years in a row get fired.
To say Rex isn't the problem is ignoring everything else that goes on with this team outside of the defense. And a lot of that ultimately falls on Rex.
