One disagreement between Adam Gase and Mike Maccagnan/Christopher Johnson...
Gase absolutely did not want to sign Le’Veon Bell, per sources. In fact, he made it clear that he didn’t want to spend a lot of money on any running back.
Statement from Jets Chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson on Mike Maccagnan.
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
Jets’ owner Christopher Johnson delivered the news today to GM Mike Maccagnan and VP of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger that he was letting them go.
Jets CEO Christopher Johnson announces that he has fired GM Mike Maccagnan.
Christopher Johnson's conference call can be best summed up with one word:
It's hard to believe anything he says at this point given everything he had said up until this point.
Christopher Johnson at the owners' meetings (late March) on Maccagnan: "I think he’s terrific at his job. He has a plan that I believe in. It’s really key that he’s working well with Adam." How's that for a quote? #Jets
Christopher Johnson just finished a call with beat writers. He insisted this wasn't a power struggle, and that his decision to fire Maccagnan had nothing to do with Gase. But he also said the synergy b/w AG and MM "was not everything I was hoping for." #Jets
As I reported previously, CEO Christopher Johnson was so concerned about the Gase-Maccagnan dynamic that he started spending extra time in the building before the draft. It was that concerning. #Jets
Jets CEO Christopher Johnson on Gase's involvement in his final decision: "This has nothing to do with Adam."
I mean... Give me a break.
Christopher Johnson on perception he's indecisive: "It was only thru diving deep into the organization...that I understood how this organization was lacking in certain ways. This isn't a decision I could have made at the end of the season. I could with Todd. I couldn't with Mike"
My sense is that once a new GM is hired, the power structure will remain the same as before, meaning Gase and the new GM will report directly to Christopher Johnson. #Jets
Statement from Jets CEO Christopher Johnson: "This morning, I informed Mike that he was being relieved of his duties as General Manager of the team, effective immediately. Mike helped to execute the strategic vision of the organization during the last four seasons and...
Christopher Johnson said he has no remorse about how much money the #Jets paid for their players. “I approved them all.” #jets
Jets CEO Christopher Johnson tells reporters: 'This job is a lot more than a talent evaluation thing.' Says he has great respect for Mike Maccagnan but adds
a deep dive this offseason allowed him to understand how the organization was lacking in certain ways.
Christopher Johnson conf call:
*Needed this offseason to evaluate Maccagnan. Wants “a great strategic thinker” as GM.
*Gase & GM report to CJ.
*#Jets did “great job” this offseason.
*No regrets over FA $$ or draft picks: “I’m totally good with that. I approved them all.” #nyjets
Christopher Johnson says he thinks the #Jets did “a great job” this offseason.
“But this is more than Mike, more than Adam. This is about this team moving forward”
CEO Christopher Johnson: 'There is never a good time to do this... As I educated myself about this process, it became more clear to me the deeper I got in this building, that it was time for a change and time to move on and that's what we're doing.' #Jets
#Jets CEO Christopher Johnson: 'I want a great, strategic thinker. It’s more than a talent evaluation guy. I want a great strategic thinker, a great manager, a communicator, someone who can collaborate well with the building. I’m convinced we’re going to find that person.'
Reading these Christopher Johnson quotes like....
(This team makes no sense sometimes.) #jets
Jets CEO Christopher Johnson: "I think this is going to be a real attractive job. I don’t think we’re going ot have any trouble finding a good GM here. I think this is an excellent spot."
Christopher Johnson says "there will be no change in the (reporting) structure going forward."
So the new GM and Adam Gase (who will hand pick the new GM) will be on parallel tracks directly to the owner again. Gase will not report to the GM, who he will hand pick.
Christopher Johnson: 'There is going to be no change in the structure going forward.' Adam Gase is the #Jets temporary GM. 'The structure will remain the same,' Johnson tells reporters.
Giants being the laughing stock of NY football lasted a few weeks. The #Jets are back for their crown. Firing their GM to give Adam Gase the title. Why have Mccagnan draft and sign FA, then fire him? Christopher Johnson is a disgrace as an owner. Disfunction at its finest
Christopher Johnson said that Adam Gase had nothing to do with the decision to fire the GM, but if Gase was fighting with the GM, with the owner more around the team, didn't he have something to do with the decision?
O presidente do Jets, Christopher Johnson, informou através das redes sociais do time q havia dispensado Mike Maccagnan de suas funções de GM. Em nota, ele disse q a mudança foi muito pensada e q preza pelos interesses do Jets. Ixi, o q será q rolou p/ essa decisão?🤔📸: @nyjets https://t.co/NvWrrp7WDs
Christopher Johnson on firing Mike Maccagnan: "This was a learning process for me, too. I’m going to get some things right and I’m going to get some things wrong, but I think I’m getting this right."
It’s so impressive how quickly Christopher Johnson has made me despise him as much as I despise Woody Johnson. Really hard to do.
This is really astonishing how incompetent an organization can be man. I wanna punch Christopher Johnson in the face so badly. https://t.co/YNXwuQl2Yt
Are we sure this wasn't Woody Johnson in a Christopher Johnson mask? I mean, both brothers can't be this stupid, right? #Jets
I wish I was the owner of the Jets. Christopher Johnson sucks !! Woody was no better neither
have to put Christopher Johnson on the @TMKSESPN
(the #1 rates sports show) to answer the fan’s questions. The fans deserve to know what’s going on!
: Christopher Johnson says he made the decision to fire Maccagnan "in the last few days.": "I'm not going to get into a lot of specifics about why we're moving on from Mike."
Christopher Johnson is a absolute joke. How many years does it take to learn Christopher? Wow I wish people would not show up to the games until the Johnson's sell the team
So YOUR owner Christopher “ I know nothing about football” Johnson signs off on the F/A additions. And the Alpha male in the room has a problem with how much Bell’s getting paid? Really? Then you can’t play nice in the sandbox with your GM who has added some nice players?
Dude I have no fucking idea what’s going on there. I have even less idea after Christopher Johnson’s conference call. This feels like a giant clusterfuck
Keep in mind it was Christopher Johnson, not Woody, but hey, you’re a douche who doesn’t seem to need to know the facts #AssHat
#Jets CEO Christopher Johnson might want to consider investments in shovels because it appears he was shoveling a lot of crap on that conference call.
