At this point, no matter who the Jets hire, they will be blasted. Which I guess is SNAFU around here anyways.
I said from Day 1 that I felt Ryan's presence would deter hiring one of the top names.
A good GM can fix the other things. That's his job. But if he can't pick his own HC to implement his vision of what he wants, then that's a potential problem IMO. And a big one.
