So his eyes not withstanding, here’s what I don’t like -
I don’t like that he’s saying he’s more or less going to be hands off when it comes to the other side of the ball and prefers to find -“a head coach of the defense”. That could just be a public overture to lure Gregg Williams bit I hate that concept.
Lest we forget, this is the second HC under Mac. The previous power structure that was doomed to fail was Mac reporting to the owner and Bowles reporting to the owner. I don’t think this structure has changed. It’s a recipe for disaster. This only leads to power struggles and back biting - see the Browns last year or heck, the Jets this year. Smartly, the Browns have eschewed this structure and gave Dorsey control of it all. The Jets will likely be mired in the muck until they find a GM that is afforded the same trust.
I was ok with the Gase hire but I’m not ok that the Jets are setting him, Darnold and themselves up for yet another failure.
