    Same Coach Different Personality

    Something I realized today:

    As I watching us get our heads beat in I kept thinking that the Jet just have the same issues year after year after year despite changes in coaching and players.

    Then it hit me that it is entirely predictable because the last 3 coaches the Jets have hired are pretty much the EXACT same coach:

    Defensive coaches that are ultra conservative on offense, struggle to make in game adjustments and are very poor at game management

    The only difference is personality. We started with the affable players coach Herm, moved to the nerdy detail aloof guy in Mangini and then moved to the brash outspoken Rex.

    But at their core they are exactly the same. Woody has essentially fired and then hired the exact same coach each time. So we repeat the same mistakes and philosophical mistakes over and over and over.

    The only way to stop the merry go round is to hire a different type of coach: a modern one that will bring some offense to the Jets and some in game skills.

    I'm surprised no one has responded to this yet. This is a very solid post.
    Why is it that we keep hiring coaches with the same philosophy, despite different personalities? Why is it that the last 5 Jets head coaches have all been defensive minded?

    Great summary.

    Cloning Bill Parcells without Dan Henning, not happening.
