It is well known that I'm not a big fan. I have constantly said he is in over his head and an incompetent in this job. I have taken a lot of grief over my vehement opposition to us joining a shared stadium with the Giants in NJ on this board. Yes, I believe that is Woody's original sin, but let's stay away from that here.
I don't see how anybody who heard Woody today can say that I was wrong in my assessment about him. The Jets are doomed as long as Woody stays the owner. How sad!
I'm very happy with woody right now. The guy has tremendous guts to stick with Rex and do what he thinks is right despite the fact he will be torn apart by the media and fans.
what was I saying?
Well, bad example. But, as a Mets fan, I don't love the ownership but they've been really.....Uh, duh what?
I was Met STHer through the first season in Citi. When I saw the direction the team was going I gave them up. I'm not talking about losing seasons. Sadly I am used to that. I'm talking of not be willing to or able to spend money on the team.
So yes I would say the owners of the Mets and Islanders have made a difference in my degree of fandom.
On the contrary
Praise Woody Johnson
Praise Woody Johnson for realizing the mistake of letting a glorified accountant run your football operations. Praise Woody Johnson for aggressively pursuing two hot ticket GM prospects with a pure football background.
Praise Woody Johnson for ridding us of Shades & Cavanaugh Syndrome.
Praise Woody for talking Rex into pursuing a modern day philosophy on offense and a new QB as well.
Praise Saint Woody Johnson
That's it. Duh! How obvious can you get? I want my GM to be successful. Geez. If he had any vision or idea about how to build a football team or a direction to take it - his statement would have consisted of a little more than 'I want a GM who can be successful'. He is clueless, wandering around without a compass hoping to trip over something that works. Every move he has made has been a knee jerk reaction to the previous mistake. Mangini was reserved and quiet, so he hired the loudest brashest non-Mangini out there. Tanny was a bust, so now he knows he needs someone able to evaluate personnel. He has no overall vision, just corrects the last mistake. While inserting his need for media attention with suggestions like Favre and Tebow. Guaranteed the next HC is an offensive guru.Woody: GM will guide us to next level of success - looking for consistency.
I wanted Shades and Cavanaugh gone.
I wanted the Jets to pursue Gamble and Caldwell from the start.
They've pursued them.
I've wanted the Jets to consider Norv Turner for OC.
They're considering him.
I've wanted the Jets to adapt to a modern offensive approach, one that doesn't try to "ground and pound" you like it's 1962.
How could I not be thrilled with what has transpired?
Amazing how some people can harp and harp on vlad ducasse....so we took a shot on a developemental olineman with 61st pick in the draft and it didnt work out.
How has jeremy kerley worked out, was that a good pick? How about wilkerson, coples, slauson - a 7th round 2 year starter.
NOT EVERY PICK IS GOING TO BE A PROBOWLER
