    So, you let the GM hire the coach, make the FA signings, and run the draft, then fire him? So they’re sticking the coach and the new GM with one full year of a team they didn’t build? Wow.

    Isn't that basically what the Bills did a couple of years ago?

    McDermott was hired in January, but Whaley wasn't fired until after the draft.

    Similar but a bit different because everyone knew Whaley was a dead man walking so they basically let McD run the draft.

    I was critical at the time but that was the year we broke the drought...

    Also, the Bills did not name McDermott the GM at any time, even though we all know he played a major role. Big difference there, too.

    I think the Bills knew they wanted Beaner all along pretty much...my opinion.

    So yeah, it was different.

    If the Jets are successful who is going to get credit? MacCagnan stacked the team with talent. He drafted Darnold before Gase was ever around. They are saying though, that MacCagnan overpaid for Bell where he didn't have to, because there was absolutely no competition for him. And they paid so much for him that they HAD to use him as a workhorse back. And that Gase didn't want to do that.

    Maybe they'll do something even dumber next, like hire a soccer coach to replace him.
