Manish talks about the famous “200% wrong” declaration involving the reports that Mike Maccagnan’s job was in jeopardy, what he thinks caused him to end up being on the wrong end of that issue, his thoughts on the perception that he was in Mike Maccagnan’s back pocket and how his recent Twitter outbursts may have helped to further feed that perception, the real story of how everything actually went down between Mike Maccagnan, Adam Gase, and Christopher Johnson including an interesting tidbit about Woody Johnson, and more!

In future episodes of this series, Manish will talk about a variety of subjects including what drew him to reporting in the first place, the road that led him to the New York Daily News, his penchant for controversy, and he will answer criticism of some of his most infamous moments on the Jets beat!
