Jets Front Office & Coaching Staff Staying Sharp Through Lockout

It has been impressive to see how dedicated and organized the New York Jets players have been throughout the lockout. From “Jets West” to Darrelle Revis taking Kyle Wilson under his wing, all the way to their recent “Camp Lockout,” they have maintained a sense of organization and dedication needed to remain a Super Bowl contender. Fortunately, the team’s front office and coaching staff hasn’t been slacking off either.

In an effort to hear new ideas and stay sharp, the team has brought in a variety of coaches and executives to pick their brain on new concepts both on and off the field moving forward. Dan Reeves, who played and coached in nine Super Bowls, was recently at the Jets complex and before him, former Washington Redskins coach, Joe Gibbs spent time with the coaching staff.

Former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator, Tom Moore came to Florham Park to break down offensive film and there is now a rumor he could join the team as a consultant, which will surely make all those Brian Schottenheimer haters out there happy.

Mike Tannenbaum took it upon himself to meet with Bill McDermott, who is the co-CEO of SAP AG, a leading provider of business software and Kevin Plank, the CEO and founder of Under Armour to pick their brain on running an organization. It is a savvy move by the Jets GM to take time to learn from successful, talented people and work to constantly improve.

It remains to be seen how much all of these visits will help in the upcoming season but it is encouraging to see the entire organization not resting on their success from the previous two years.
