    I am pleased with the hire. I wonder if there is some significance that is was finally announced on the day of the 2nd interview with Bowles.

    For #Jets fans dying for a GM with a thorough personnel/scouting background, Maccagnan is your guy.

    Who cares about personality? I want wins.


    Brian Costello @BrianCoz · 8m 8 minutes ago
    I have heard that Maccagnan is a great talent evaluator. There are some questions about how his personality will fit as a GM. #nyj


    Brian Costello @BrianCoz · 6m 6 minutes ago
    I have heard the Jets plan to bring someone in to handle the salary cap/contract side of things since Maccagnan has no experience there.




    Brian Costello @BrianCoz · 2m 2 minutes ago
    The good news is I heard from one source he is a "brilliant" talent evaluator. One person called him the best in football. #nyj Shocked

    Nice..........

    Jeff Darlington @JeffDarlington · 45m 45 minutes ago
    Now that deal between Mike Maccagnan & Jets has been reached (the guy they’ve wanted since the start), allow me to explain how it happened.


    Jeff Darlington @JeffDarlington · 44m 44 minutes ago
    Charlie Casserly targeted Maccagnan at start of this process. Casserly has known Maccagnan since early 90s when Maccagnan started as intern.


    Jeff Darlington @JeffDarlington · 45m 45 minutes ago
    Casserly was not present for Maccagnan interview. Ron Wolf, Jets’ other consultant, conducted it. Wolf immediately came away impressed.

    Jeff Darlington @JeffDarlington · 45m 45 minutes ago
    With Wolf and Casserly both on board to endorse Maccagnan to ownership, the Jets still continued their due diligence for a thorough search.


    Jeff Darlington @JeffDarlington · 45m 45 minutes ago
    Maccagnan, though, wasn’t simply going to take job. Not his style. He wanted to make sure scouting dep’t would be sufficiently supported.



    Jeff Darlington @JeffDarlington · 45m 45 minutes ago
    Ultimately, Jets proved ready to support Maccagnan, known in league circles as a true grinder and respected as a cerebral, hard worker.


    Jeff Darlington @JeffDarlington · 38m 38 minutes ago
    When I saw Maccagnan wants scouting dep’t to be sufficiently supported, it means he wanted proper resources invested in the crew he’ll hire.




    Jeff Darlington @JeffDarlington · 34m 34 minutes ago
    Maccagnan isn’t going to wow anyone with words or charm. That’s not him. Better ways to describe him: Logical, focused, rational, smart.

    I could not be happier he wanted the scouting dept prioritized.

    FWIW re: Maccagnan, one person not with the jets who I spoke with said he was far and away the best among the candidates interviewed.

    sounds like a good hire.  hard to really know how a guy will do his first time in the big-boy chair.  we can't just look at the texans drafts and say if he is good or bad since he didn't make the final calls.  but it seems most of the reviews of his knowledge and work ethic are very good.  i like that wolf led his interview and came away impressed, so it's not just casserly selling his guy on woody.

    glad that part is done with before they make the final call on coach.  obviously it would have been better to have had maccagnan in on the quinn interview, especially in light of bowles being in today for round 2.

    Jets GM and head coach will each report directly to Woody Johnson. Maccagnan will have final say over the 53-man roster. #nyj
