    jump on Bowles ahead of Atlanta(who scheduled the 2nd interview with him first) and got their man, so I like that proactive approach.
    I wish we did that in 1991!

    I'm still have that so/so feeling about Gailey...but time will tell.

    I posted yesterday pre Bowles hire it was crunch time and if he was our guy we couldn't let him out of the building without a contact. If he got on a plane to Atlanta today they would have signed him. Seems Woody agreed.

    As for Gailey he is not an exciting choice but he is a solid one. He was always a good OC just a failed HC. He will give us enough offense to win with Bowles D

    That said, Quinn was the name closest tied to Idzik, so it's possible the team wanted to go in a different direction there.

    Quinn and Bowles were close, so if my preference was Quinn, it wasn't by that much. I'm pleased overall.


    yea I wanted Quinn also but I am happy with this selection and the process that woody used... J-E-T-S

    The coordinators that are still in the playoffs get screwed. Do you they should change the rules to where you can't talk to anyone until
    after the Super Bowl?

    Rex always said he was going to bring Super Bowls to the Jets.

    Is it possible he meant "Super Bowles"?

    (OK, I'm sick of the puns, too.)

    Jets had no clear indication they were Dan Quinn's first choice and, quite frankly, they liked Bowles better. so no reason to wait on Quinn



    Gary Myers @garymyersNYDN · 14h 14 hours ago
    Bowles was scheduled to fly to Atlanta on Wed AM for second interview. Once Jets knew he was their guy, didn't let him out of the building.



    Gary Myers @garymyersNYDN · 14h 14 hours ago
    If Jets liked Quinn better than Bowles, they would have waited to interview him again Monday and taken risk of not getting either.




    Gary Myers @garymyersNYDN · 14h 14 hours ago
    Basically it came down to this: Jets were more impressed in two interviews with Bowles than one interview with Quinn.




    Wow, all the positive reactions that I'm reading to our hires............... as a Jets fan, I'm not used to this Very Happy .

    I'm excited about Todd Bowles. No candidate would have us doing cartwheels. I think this is as good a shot as any. Let's go #Jets.

    I was very excited about Quinn...Bowles was top 3, so I can live with it. I feel better about Bowles than I would if we landed Kubiak or Del Rio, two recent coaches to land jobs...so this direction, to me, is more exciting than those directions, IMO.

    Very interested to see if #Jets pursue CJ Spiller, had monster year with Gailey and is FA. Also think Harvin is even more likely back now

    Anti Mornhinweg/Sparano RT @AllbrightNFL: Chan Gaile the OC had always maximized the talent in his offenses, masked the weaknesses.

    Congrats to Todd Bowles on the HC job w/ the #Jets. Remember when he was the DB coach in NY my rookie year. Overdue...LessTalkMoreResults

    I think Harvin could have a monster year in Gaileys' offense

    From Wiki -

    Thomas Chandler Gailey, Jr. (born January 5, 1952) is the offensive coordinator for the New York Jets. Gailey was formerly the head coach of the NFL's Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys, and also the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets college football team.

    Gailey previously served as offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins in 2000–01 when the Dolphins posted consecutive 11–5 records. He was on the Pittsburgh Steelers staff from 1994–97 when the Steelers won four straight AFC Central titles and coached in one Super Bowl (XXX). He was offensive coordinator in 1997 when Pittsburgh ranked sixth in the NFL in total offense and seventh in scoring.[1] Gailey served as the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008 and three games of the 2009 pre-season.

    Really wanted Bowles. Got a lot out of Cardinals D while hit with injuries. Did not want Quinn, he had a very good D in Seattle. and had a fairly easy time, Felt Quinn was overrated

    Spoke to Bill Cowher re new Jets OC Chan Gailey, his former Pitt OC. Says Geno Smith will benefit from Gailey's "less-is-better" approach.

    Looks like Bowles and Quinn were always bound to NYJ or Atl!

    If Maccagnan retains Harvin at 10.5 million then I will be very skeptical of his chops as a GM. No way in hell Harvin (injuries, character, locker room presence, size as a true wideout, etc) is worth north of 10 million per year.

    Regarding Spiller, that would be a home run acquisition and would fill neatly most of what Harvin brings to an offense, and likely at a greatly reduced price tag. I don't think Spiller has realized his potential yet (think Leon Washington with even more wiggle), but the prime years of his career are the next 3-4.

    A move like that (dumping Harvin for Spiller) is how you make your mark as a GM and turn around a franchise.
