I am not advocating for him, or against him, for that matter. But he is now available and has had some success. He has also been a part of this organization at one time. So I am curious to read what the consensus is out there for him.
He would make a great usher in Section 101. Otherwise, no.
He created a train wreck in KC. How does that make him qualified to run the Jets?
Tom Brady is a better "jobs program" than the US Government could ever devise. He has saved Belichick, got OC Josh McDaniels a Head Coaching job, got a very average Deion Branch a Super Bowl MVP award, etc. The Tom Brady "halo effect" is huge. Pioli was just one of the many beneficiaries.
Set me straight. You don't think Tom Brady has made a ton of average or good people seem great???

Here at Jets Insider, I do not favor Scott Pioli as our next GM. His lack of success without the Brady/Bellichek combination is concerning.
Pioli drafted Brady. Before his glory years in New England he was the director of pro personnel with the Jets during the Parcells years and was partially responsible for us going from 1-15 to 12-4 and AFCG two years later.
Pioli made 2 bad mistakes in KC which ruined his tenure there (Cassell, Haley) that said I think he deserves another shot and could actually help us acquire talent on offense.
Chiefs fans were paying out of their own pockets to fly banners over the stadium to fire this turd. Many of the fans that actually showed up were wearing black to the games instead of the usual red in protest. How some of you can be even remotely interested in Pioli is mind-boggling.
Yeah absolutely not, Pioli's a joke...I laughed almost as hard as when Cimini suggested Jerry Angelo as a GM candidate when I heard Pioli's name mentioned...I think a lot of Jets fans need to stop thinking like the old organization that in various times throughout history had no idea what they were doing...
The Jets are looking at GREAT candidates, and word is Tom Gamble is their top target so I'm just hoping for him and if that falls through I want Marc Ross or David Caldwell (although I heard it's pretty much a done deal for him in Jacksonville)...if they hire anyone but those 3 it will be a disappointment in my eyes
Still doesn't change the fact that 99% of coaches and executives from New England have fallen flat on their faces once they've left for a promotion.
How many of them drafted Brady? Or provided Belichick players on defense that led to 18-1 season and 3 Super Bowls? Drafted Seymour, Wilfork, Mayo, Matt Light, Asante Samuel, traded for Welker, signed Koeppen as UFA - ever wonder why the Pats haven't had a good draft since 2008? Or helped Parcells take the Jets from 1-15 to 12-4 in less than 2 years?
It's easy to dismiss Pioli as a joke because he missed badly with Cassell in KC. You want a NFL GM with a perfect record? No such thing exists.
