I love how the jets have said nothing and everyone is freaking out and speculating. This should be the new standard for this organization. Say nothing Ever bout Anything then just do it. Fans and media be damned. Pats do it, Giants do it...winning franchise honestly don't care for the opinions of the fans or the media. Looks like Woody has finally grown up as an owner.
Jim Nantz and Phil Simms both just said "swag." It's official. That word is no longer cool.
Give him a one year deal and be prepared to clean house from GM all the way down to the guy who gets coffee.
The cap will be better, new GM can build his team from the bottom up.
Plus, now that we have already reached out to every single potential GM in the league, we should be able to do it rather quickly. Instead of going into week 3 of our search.
His player evaluation has led to some of the issues we faced. He doubled down on Pace and Scott, when had he left the contracts as is, he couldn't have cut them prior to this season and been a player in FA. Additionally poor drafting killed the ability to maintain the team. If Wilson plays like Wilkerson, we are able to jump out of the Cro contract with no worries or maybe we even move Revis a year sooner, who knows. It was his terrible player eval that killed the cap. The contracts themselves (as originally created, not after the reworks) were really well designed.
From our three finalists these are my rankings.
2. Cohen (Only because after we bomb next season, there will finally be a complete organizational change.)
999. Angelo (Because the guy does not know how the NFL draft operates.)
Perhaps the delay and apparent "smoke signal" has something to do with the person(s) the Jets are targeting may happen to be part of an organization that is still involved in the playoffs? I know this has nothing to do with coaching, but perhaps there is more to this notion that not?
Fact remains we very well may be landing Cohen or Angelo........
Let us pray to the football gods this does not occur!
Really nice article written by our own Jason. Figure I would link it because the article is pretty large to quote and I think he'd appreciate an extra hit for his website.

A league source tells me Brian Billick wanted Mike Pettine to be his defensive coordinator if he got Eagles job, until Pettine went to Bills
