    Never burn your bridges in the NFL

    Yesterday's trade for Mark Sanchez started earlier after last season was done when the Jets fired Mangini.Many of the TV experts couldn't understand why the Jets never knocked Mangini publicly after his dismissal.Woody Johnson spoke fondly of him. Mike T gave him high marks for the job that he did with the Jets.That lack of bitterness with a coaches firing was absent and the catalyst in the Jets chase of Sanchez.There was no baggage or hurt feelings with these parties and allowed this deal to get made.Mike T had laid the ground work with preliminary talks this past week with Cleveland.Personally I believe we stole the guy but history will tell us if the Sanchez deal was the beginning to the Jets winning a SB.

    Mangini may be a fatso doofus nerd, but he's very professional, or at least acted that way when he left.

    The Browns were the only team that we could have done this with..Mangini knew the players involved. Him and Tanny are still friends and the Browns DC is Rex's brother..

    Throw in the hatred that Mangini has for the Patriots, and the willingness for him to do anything to help another team beat them.

    Speaking of which, does anyone know if the scumbag ever opened Mangini's office or ever returned his personal effects?

    Excellent point. No need to dump all over guys once they have left, you never know when you will be running into them again.

    Spot on. It always pays dividends to behave with professionalism and respect, which is exactly how Tannenbaum and Mangini acted toward each other when Mangini was fired.

    Great point. I overheard a little tidbit from Michael Smith on ESPN this morning that Tannenbaum actually sent Mangini a bottle of champagne as a farewell gift after they fired him. Seems like the split up on good terms. And it really helped us out yesterday.
