For what its worth, I went to the Jax game and sat with a bunch of jets fans from fan clubs in Tampa and Carolina. I met a guy who had a pregame field pass from a friend who works for the team or something. He said that he heard Woody hired someone to evaluate the entire organization and that big changes would be coming after the season ended. Word was that Cowher was going to be brought in to run everything.
I honestly didnt give it much thought at time, but who knows....this was on Dec 9th, well before reports of Woody hiring any firm, and now Cowhers name is out there. Again, take it for what its worth...just thought it was interesting given the information that has come out since then.
I guarantee you one thing, he won't lose the pulse of the team and he would hold players accountable.
Another interesting tidbit. His OC the first 3 seasons with Roethlisberger was Ken Whisenhunt.
Cowher runs a team like an executive. Very much a cheerleader on the sidelines. Same with Tomlin.
Only reason Pitt is good is because they have a great D-coordinator that usually gets you 6-9 wins minimum and they managed to draft a gutsy QB whos' in the top 10 for sure. He gets you the extra wins.
But, but, but he would NEVUR come to the Jets!!!!!
Could this be true? Of course it could, although if WJ was really looking to dump Rex, why issue the statement of support and say he WAS coming back next year?
I'd remind everyone again: this is Fatcesa, a guy who when LT was arrested for rape, announced on the air that he had "spoken to his sources in law enforcement in NJ," proceeded to pontificate how the charges were trumped up, and then backtracked as soon as he realized LT's rape thing happened in New York.
This is what Mushnick said about it at the time:
That's all we need to know about Fatty's sawces.Francesa makes mis-state-ment on LT case
Mike Francesa, pants on fire: Professor Fran-say-so, Thursday, again was caught big-timing an audience he figured wasn't bright enough to know; he again trapped himself in his own device by trying to promote his bogus Mr. Inside Big Shot image.
With Lawrence Taylor charged with rape, Francesa, sounding as if J. Edgar Hoover was on hold, said he's already on the case, working the phones. Yup, he'd spoken with "law enforcement people in New Jersey" who thus far only could provide him "very sketchy" details.
But when told that Taylor had been arrested and jailed in The Town of Ramapo, N.Y. -- not Ramapo, N.J. -- Francesa started to tap dance. Repeating, "I thought it was in New Jersey," didn't explain his reliance on his Jersey "law enforcement" contacts to provide him the nuts.
No doubt this also lands on the "Mike's Mysteriously Missing Show Tapes" list.
But the Taylor story, on WFAN, has been heavy on farce.
Friday, Evan Roberts, deadly serious, said that all signs suggest that the pimp who allegedly delivered the child prostitute to Taylor, "is not a good pimp."
Later, Joe Benigno soberly said, "It's obvious that this pimp is a bad guy."
Yep, this guy might give pimps a bad name.

seems like francesa had lunch with mehta today
Would love to see Cowher take over and talk Rex into being his Dee Coordinator, That would be my wish...
You know I would love to see Madden 14 have a feature where you can change GM's HC, OC, DC with all kinds of implausible management scenarios....... Cowher as HC with Rex as DC; Belichick as HC with Rex as DC, Rex, with LeBeau as DC, Norv as OC.........
Kotite as HC with Schotty as OC, Rob Ryan as DC
Would sell millions of copies
But I think this is all a pipe dream. I can't imagine Cowher wants any part of the Jets with Sanchez and no signs of a better QB. I could see him in Carolina for sure.
