    Atlanta was ranked #5 in points scored in 2010, #7 in 2011 and #7 in 2012.

    In terms of yards, they went from #10 in 2011 to #8 in 2012. They actually had more yards on offense and scored more points in 2011 than in 2012.

    So, I'm not sure what you mean.

    Wow, now people want to trade places with Jacksonville, the team that has one 1 playoff game in the past 13 seasons, is playing games in London through 2016, can't sell out a game, will most likely end up with Tebow, and might move out of Jax, all because they hired a GM who fired the coach.

    Yeah, yay for them! This place is a mess

    but the Jags offense under his watch was horrible. Maybe it was because he didn't have the personnel, I don't know. If we are looking for fired HC's for our OC, Norv would be the only one i would entertain

    Except it's really not true with respect to Atlanta.

    The post was a bunch of...mularkey.

    Who's wishing we were the Jags? We're wishing our owner would let our GM have authority.

    Some people are just better coordinates versus head coaches. Also Mike never got a fair shake in Jacksonville, everyone knows that.

    Did you like the way he handled the MJD contract situation this year, would you have felt the same if Woody handled Revis in the same manner ??
    I think Khan handled the MJD situation great. He made him honor the deal he signed in 2009 and wasnt going to let MJD bully him into giving him anymore money. It would have been foolish for Jax to give MJD anymore money or years. You dont sign aging RBs to a second big contract.

    Exactly. Mularkey would be a good choice for OC. Rex as DC and Gruden as HC.

    Get on the bus!!!

    Khan just took over as owner this season and he has done a very good job thus far in my eyes. The record of this team speaks of the incompetence of the previous owner.

    Who really cares about the Jaguars? Not even their fans. You want to make a mark in this profession as a GM, you take a tough job like the Jets.
    If you can make it there you make it anywhere baby!

    These guys get the big bucks for a reason, not to be some pansy azzes complaining about having a great defensive mind coaching the team.
    Saying no one would want the Jets GM job is just stupid.
    I'm glad they are taking their sweet Azz time trying to get the guy here they feel has the same vision they do.
    If I owned the Jets , I would also have some type of vision as to what type of team I'm looking for or direction to go in.
    How would you like to be a Dallas fan & have Jurry Jones running the ship.
    By the way, Jurry does know a lot about football, where has that gotten him lately?

    I'm sorry, should have said passing offense. They got away from being a primarily ground focused offense and became a passing focused offense. We're looking to do the same.

    Matt Ryan went from 4,100 yards to about 4,800 yards (more TDs too) while Michael Turner went from 1,300+ yards to 700 or so.

    That's not saying I wouldn't want him, he is certainly capable. Just that he may be the opposite of what Rex is looking for.

    Its a mess because people take a simple comment about how Jax let their new GM fire the HC, and turn it into "Wow, now everyone wants to trade places with Jacksonville". Not one person said that.

    Ryan developed nicely under Mularkey it seems.

    It wasn't a big difference in passing yards between 2011 and 2012. Only 317 yards. Who's the say that Mularkey wouldn't have achieved the same?

    Was he fired as OC or did he choose to leave because he was offered a HC job?

    I'd take Gruden over Rex as HC on any day that ends in a "Y."

I do not hate Woody, but at the end of the day he handled this process the wrong way.
    So he made a move that's perceived to be the correct move by the masses, that in of itself makes him a competent owner. Again, i'm not riding you but I think a lot of people here are overestimating just how much impact an owner has on a team. Basically, you want an owner who allows his GM and staff the financial backing that they need. Woody , has done that , he's consistently spent up to the cap and has been willing to eat contracts of fired HC's & Gm's.

    The rest of the crap circus & all that is just a manifestation of the NY media and the SOJF mentality that is drawn to it like a moth to a light.
