Nope. 100% wrong. I have been a Jets fan for 30+ years and in all that time we have had one legitimately good head coach: Parcells. OK, maybe Walt Michaels but I was too young to really say for sure. Anyway, give the fan base someone who is obviously competent and we will stick with him. You can't compare what happened to buffoons like Coslet, Kotite, et al with someone like Cowher. Hell, Parcells botched the backup QB situation badly in '99 - no one wanted him to leave. If you can recognize someone knows what he is doing, you can be patient. When it is obvious someone is incompetent - as has been the case with 99% of the Jet head coaches in my lifetime - you want them out as fast as possible.
If only Woody were smart enough to give Cowher a blank check. Unfortunately we all know better.
