TB wants expeirnce, so it seems Ferentz is out. He also hasn't mentioned Sherman, though he'd be my pick. Not expremely impressed with our coordinators and God help us if it's Fassel or Haslett. Maybe not realistic, but I'd take Tice.
Mike Heimerdinger has the resume, football knowledge, and demeanor to be a good coach in this league in the mold of Mike Shanahan, who is his mentor or Mike Holmgren and Andy Reid who are connected to him on the Bill Walsh coaching tree.
I wrote three years ago that we were brain dead too give in too HERM extention and raise after a 6-10 year there was SABEN WEISS avilable and ounless others. BUT we cannot i mean cannot pass on MANGINI. HE will instill and go for your throot and not let you breath mental approach and won't run scarred or be afarid too clean up HERM/TB mess i.e cutting the FABINI's,MAWAHS,MARTIN's, PENNINGTONS of the world. DOING and putting the fear into players and having the detail mind of the importance of every single play of every single game and actually making in game offense and defense adjustments. Having and understanding of the CAP and paying players what their worth bases on performance and not out of loyalty. just waching Samual play where he just luched himself like a projectile at the ball carrier and sent him too the next zip code i've yet see that from our defense ever.
Fassel's strongest assets is his knowledge of and dealing with the New York Press Corp.
Sherman brings the most to the table in terms of experience and with Terry wanting to make a more forceful effort at representing the public face of the Jets in the new regime this might suit Sherman to a tee.
Heimerdinger. Mikey has the inside track. He is a known commodity to Bradway he has a long tenure in the NFL and he landed as the Jets O-Coordinator because his HC interview with the 9ers fell through. He took the Jets job because he felt that working in New York would give him increased visibility when an HC job came open. Debuting in the "City that Never Sleeps" may be a tall order but rarely to these type of gigs come made to order.
All of these guys have one thing in common. They come from the Offensive side of the ball which is going to be a necessary prerequisite. During Herman Edwards tenure he focused almost exclusively on Defense and left a mess on offense for the next guy to clean up.
