It's amazing how when it' all right there they don't change. The first GM fired next season.....Mike McCagonuen(spelling, not that he's worth knowing)
I wasn't completely sold on McCarthy either but man, I'm just not feeling this one. Of course if it was some organization that knew what it was doing and not the Jets I might give it a little more of a benefit of the doubt but...
What an awful hire. Jets are beyond incompetent... they can’t help themselves.
This is like the Bills hiring Rex Ryan but Gase really showed nothing in Miami. His teams had no expertise at any objective. The whole objective of the head coach is to coach your coaches. Maybe this is why the trees of even Bellichick haven't seen returns.
Like I said when he was fired, I've never understood the fascination with him as a HC. I was surprised when media immediately said he'd be a top candidate for other jobs but they were right.
The "QB whisperer"......
It is partially an indictment on McCarthy. On paper it looks like a slam dunk hire but at the same time one title in 13 years with 2 hall of fame quarterbacks is nothing spectacular.
Wasn't that when Manning struggled?
Nah, Gase is a much better choice then that fat piece of garbage. Still uninspiring.
I agree neither were inspiring but I disagree that Gase is good at all or even better than that slob who isn't all that great.
I mean it wasn't really a great choice if you wanted an experienced coach and after twenty years of hiring inexperienced coaches, it was time for the Jets to stop treating a NY job like an entry-level position. And the only defense I have of Gase is his QB's were a vat of uninspiring and the locker room was filled with high-maintenance players just like Tanny did here with Rex.
I do wonder if Gase even gets an interview if we were 5-1 against him instead of 1-5. Not much of an accomplishment beating Todd Bowles and the last three years of the Jets though.
The thing I find alaming about Gase is his team mailed it in the last 2 games after getting eliminated after losing badly in Minnesota after making a bit of a rally. Outside of a horrible pick 6 by Allen at the end of the 1st half the Dolphins really did nothing all day. They had a shot to be .500
Well, he is going to NY, almost all of their sports teams have high maintenance locker rooms. The market creates that.
WFAN will be an absolute joy to listen to tomorrow. Wow.
You have McCarthy basically begging you to hire him and you hire Gase?
Mike Maccagnan is a freaking disaster.
The worst part is, when they finally realize they got it wrong, they'll probably have already stunted Darnold irreversibly.
Boomer might have a rare temper. Wish Carton was still free, he would be crying for 4 hours.
The Patriots streak of winning their division will continue a few more years.
I actually think Buffalo may be on the right track. This upcoming year may tell a lot about that though.
I'm stunned the Jets hired Gase, maybe Darnold will have a good sophmore year.
But Gase couldn't get jack **** out of Tannehill.
To be fair it seemed like nobody else was really banging down McCarthy's door before that public proclamation. His whole 'I'll only have interest in the Jets job' was a PR play IMO. Who else even interviewed him besides the Browns (maybe)?
Isn't Carton doing one of those stupid gambling shows on a cable network now?
Hmmm...looks like not anymore.
Good for Gase
Will be interesting to see how Darnold does with him as HC
I don't recall him doing a gambling show, if he did it had to be out of Jersey because King Cuomo still hasn't really legalized it. Eventhough it's legal it's up to the particular state to legalize it. WFAN operates out of one of the boroughs. But yeah he got busted by the feds almost a year ago now.
Ah yes, the supposed "QB Whisperer" goes to work taking a hatchet to another career.
Hope you like your QB being adverse to taking deep shots and resorting to checkdowns ad nausem, Jets fan.
He did nothing to make Tannehill look good (i'd argue he looked worse at points), he made a trash can like Cutler look less trash, and then he gets zero credit working with Peyton Manning because it's Peyton ****ing Manning. He made Jim Caldwell look like a competent coach.
Edit: Not to mention all the allegations of Gase being an enormous *****e behind the scenes. His supposed "culture change" was basically "if you disagree with me even the slightest, you're worthless to me." to the point guys like Kenyan Drake were losing touches because of his ego.
I thought the Manning ride was in Denver when Manning was on his last legs and the last 2 years was a shell of his former self?
