New York Jets – The Winding Road To A Likely Smart Decision

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets potentially turning a corner in their perpetual rebuild by landing Joe Douglas

The New York Jets were able to close over the weekend, landing their top choice for General Manager Joe Douglas with a six year deal. Douglas will now begin the task of rebuilding a front office and scouting department that has been the biggest reason for the team’s prolonged playoff drought.

The Jets perpetual “rebuild” has not been a straight line process or a mastermind four dimensional chess strategy but enough parts may finally be starting to come together for them to turn the ever elusive corner.

Why The New York Jets May Have Finally Got It Right

Dalbin Osorio on the New York Jets decision to hire Joe Douglas as their next GM

It wasn’t “normal”, despite numerous instances in recent history showing that it definitely was. It was viewed as unorthodox, when a new head coach may or may not have pushed a bad general manager out because he wasn’t as much of a maniac as he wanted. Fans freaked out when that same head coach, as interim GM, jettisoned players that realistically should’ve been moved months ago.

The circus was back, they said, because Owner Chris Johnson saw in 3 months what alot of people had already seen enough of: Mike Maccagnan was bad at his job and he needed to go. All Maccagnan had shown a penchant for was being able to spend Woody Johnson’s money two offseasons over, and to not pass on high ceiling prospects when he was picking in the top six. Maccagnan had not shown an ability to scout skill position players beyond the first round, Jordan Jenkins and Robby Anderson notwithstanding, and the draft misses were piling up.
