Jets let their GM:
Go nuts in 2018 free agency
Trade everything to draft Sam Darnold
Fire Todd Bowles
Hire Adam Gase
Spend tons of money on Le’Veon Bell
Spend tons of money on CJ Mosley + more
Run the 2019 NFL Draft
Then fired him.
Justified or not the process is real weird.
If Christopher Johnson has doubts about Mike Maccagnan, he should’ve fired him with Todd Bowles after the season. It would’ve been a fresh start. To let him run free agency and the draft makes no sense. #Jets
So the Jets fire Todd Bowles, but keep Mike Maccaganan ... then let him lead the new coaching search, spend $100M-plus in free agency, and run the draft (including the 3rd overall pick) ... and THEN fire him and elevate a coach they've had for four months?
Makes no sense at all.
If you follow me, you know how I felt about Maccagnan as a GM. He was terrible and he should have been let go with Bowles (it has basically become a TOJ drumbeat for 12+ months) but this timing is wild and shocking.
Gase won a power play in 3 months?
My mom has been through A LOT recently. #Cancer. Two surgeries. Other health issues. It’s been tough. SHE’s been tough! She also wanted to keep things private - until now. This is her story. Watch this video in full HERE: https://t.co/ZGmCx21gZd
you look like you ask 15 year olds on snapchat for nudes
A couple thoughts on this crazy news:
1. Maccagnan should’ve been fire with Bowles obviously, so this is weird.
2. Adam Gase BETTER deliver the goods this season if he wants to play wolf pack leader.
3. Joe Douglas >>> Mike Maccagnan so sign me all the way up.
So lets recap the last five months in New York sports:
Bowles fired, Gase hired, Porzingis traded, OBJ traded, Lev Bell signs, Dolan gets trolled, Daniel Jones at six, Knicks lose out out on Zion, Macagnan fired.
You can't make this stuff up.
Flug is gebucht. Ab morgen bin ich dann da Chef voms #Jets FO. Kann ja nur besser werden.
(Warum man ihn nicht mit Bowles gefeuert hat(was logisch gewesen wäre) und ihn noch den Draft und FA machen ließ, ist mir ein Rätsel. Hätte er mal einen Center gedraftet😅) https://t.co/c6WpV7zRrF
The problem didn’t exist before free agency and once it surfaced it was too late to do during free agency/draft. So yes #Jets should’ve fired Macc with Bowles but for entirely different reasons

I will always put others feeling before mine and that’s my problem
Zac Bowles really just needs to shut the fuck up
All these people out here claiming they wished Macc was gone with Bowles... not so fast.
I was definitely in the minority for YEARS saying what a bust Maccagnan was.
The proof is in the pudding. Show me the pudding. Go back through my work. It’s there.
Especially when they could have fired him when they fired Bowles
you seriously couldn’t last 2 months without being the biggest clown show in New York

This is a great article but why didn't you bring the same smoke to Mac when Bowles was fired? He was a god awful GM. Thrilled he's gone

The Jets gave both Macc and Bowles an extension that you fully endorsed at the time and of course are criticizing now. It must be nice to be bad at a job like you are and keep it.

This was great timing on this to keep us pumped up during the off-season; pacing it with Bowles firing, Bell pick up, The draft and finally Mike gone! Looking forward to the fall and hopefully this is not a bunch of build up for a typical Jets let-down.
Fire Bowles and Macc: D- somehow
Sign and draft pass rusher: B-, Polite is a decent draft day value but only one player with question marks
Sign Bell: A+
Draft 3 OL: D+, Meatloaf said 2/3 "ain't bad," so I assume 1/3 is bad. I like Edoga, though
Who hired Gase? Seems the GM was out of favor with Jets management...maybe he kept Bowles around too long.
Strange timing but shuda wouda cuoda was when they canned Bowles and right before the draft.
I guess his picks sucked again.

Don’t think he’s going totally Sparano, he just is closer to Sparano on the spectrum than let’s say Cam Cameron, Joe Philbin, or Todd.Bowles
Macc war ein schlechter Drafter. Die guten Draftpicks (meist 1st rnd) hätte ich auch gemacht&ich bin wahrlich kein NFL GM/Scout. Hat oft Fehler gemacht in FA (meistens aber nur einmal). Weine ihm nicht nach. Hätte ihm mit Bowles gefeuert. (Nach dem BUF @ home Spiel letzte Saison)
Why can't you guys stop being such a clown show? You're giving Gase the keys to the city despite him having done nothing to deserve it. If you were going to fire the GM why not do it when you fired Bowles? So tired of rooting for this joke of a franchise.
You would get our votes for the GM position! Hard to have patience with the Jets organization Gary, why fire Mac now? Why not before the draft ? Or shipped him off with Bowles. Typical Johnson family.
I have no problem with Maccagnan getting canned, it's the timing. Fire him with Bowles and start all over from scratch. Now the new GM inherits a coach he didn't pick and you let Macc make all these huge decisions on players this offseason
I think it’s funny how the jets let Bowles go but hired gase like he better 😂😂 both got ran by the pats and buffalo
Maccagnan put Bowles out there. Other than the fact that they were both in the Redskins organization, there was very little linkage. In fact there was allegedly a lot of he said he said.
@ErnieAcostaWFAN @Scott13NY @daverichard
To say “well other teams blow drafts too”. He’s been here quite a while. He hired Todd Bowles, which was enough to show he was a dope. This team is so flawed it’s amazing.
once they knew they were firing Bowles, they should’ve been smart enough to clean house totally. now the new GM will have a coach he didn’t hire and that’ll be an issue unless they hire a “Gase guy” as the GM. naturally, this is a mess. https://t.co/D91GPJePEI
If Adam Gase really didn’t want Leveon Bell and CJ Mosley then maybe the Jets fired the wrong guy
I totally agree with Maccagnan being fired, it's just the timing of it all that confuses me. Why didn't they fire him with Todd Bowles or right after the draft was over?
@mattcolalella @jasonms316 @FieldYates @joebaseballs
Woody Johnson changed the Jets organizational structure when he hired Bowles and Maccagnan. I don't think they'll ever have success when the Coach/Gm have a conflicting agenda/aren't married to each other. Not having “one-voice" from football operations does not seem ideal...
Are you not curious why they didn’t just fire MAC when they fired Bowles? I’m not mad for Mac being gone, just don’t get the timing
