His agreement with Fox kneeling on the ball at the end of Broncos-Ravens (he was on Mike and Mike this morning) proves he has not changed one bit from his previous failed coaching strategies. That type of mentality from a coach will never win a team anything. Golic and Greenberg were practically beside themselves arguing with him over it.
Just thought I'd point it out as there was some groundswell of support for Mangini among certain posters here.
Eric Mangini is a good coach and his body or work with the Jets was a good one overall. Look at the roster and the way the organization was run. Not too many coaches get fired after 9 and 7 seasons. To label him a bad coach is far from the truth.
As for him returning. That ship has sailed.
