I actually think Gase is a good coach, he doesnt care for pre-Madonnas.

Would that be Cyndi Lauper?

Im on record as suggesting I'm not sure what Bills fans are laughing at. We did the same thing two years ago.😅

 

Unsure.  It was pretty clear that Whaley was a lame duck from the post-Rex-firing presser on, and certain once they hired McDermott.

It was arguably not the best choice to keep Whaley through the draft, but it was pretty clear McDermott was basically using him as a scouting service and making the picks, and it's pretty clear McDermott knew who he wanted.  It may well be that they couldn't bring in Beane prior to the Panthers draft without  burning a bunch of bridges around the league.

 

I don't follow the Jets much: was that their situation?

...stay as GM and rehire Wrecks as HC......get the "Clown Show" in FULL bloom............

Just as long as he doesnt stay as GM and promote  Greggo.

 

After all he was probably offered the HC job 5 times but turned it down so Gase could get it.  Just ask him he will tell you.

Better yet keep Gase as the HC and Rex at the GM!  Could you imagine the team Rex would draft!? :D

The Bills did this, however, I trust McDermott a lot more than I trust Gase.

 

Rumor has it, Gase didn't like the signings of Bell and Mosley.  He is now stuck with them, while the guy who signed them, is gone.  I think McDermott was running FA and the draft, even when Whaley was here.  Doesn't sound like that was the case in NY.

I would say she surpassed Madonna in status so couldnt be considered pre-Madonna.  It would be more along the lines of Brittany Spears.

@ScottLaw doesn’t follow the Jets either; he just views his job on TSW to be “that guy” critiquing Bills fans critiquing anything another organization does because “McD and Beane haven’t done anything yet.”

Nah.

 

It does stink of dysfunction, seemed like a power struggle between Mccagnon and Gase with Gase coming out on top. 

 

In ways it's very similar to the Bills situation a couple years ago. Goes back to ownership not having a clue. A lot like here.

I won't speak for others, but for me I am enjoying the apparent disarray the Jet organization seems to be in.

There was some national and even local (this board for example) of the seemingly disarray the Bills went through.

It worked out well for the Bills in my opinion.

 

As for McDermott and Gase records.  I'll stick with Bills HC McDermott beating Gase 3 out of 4 times.

Arguably one catch away from 4 out of 4.

And in ways it's totally different, but hey...

 

As for the second part of that sentence, link?

The biggest difference between this and Whaley is that we didn’t give Adam F***** Gase power..

When the coach doesnt want you to  draft a 3-tech DT and you still go ahead and do it ....

When you did the same thing with drafting DT Leonard Williams a few years ago and then put him at EDGE all but ruining his productivity ...

When you overpaid to draft Darnold basically handing the Colts continued run at the post-season in the AFC in the coming years .....

The Barr fiasco ......

When you guarantee  25 Million to a RB against an Offense oriented coach's express wishes...

When you guarantee  51 Million to a LB also against the recently hired  coach's express wishes...

 

Excellent list.  I’d also add 99.9% of GM’s don’t survive Todd Bowles as their head coach choice and Hackenburg as their first swing at getting a franchise QB.
