firemanCould someone please explain to me why on Earth the Jets are so attached to Brian Schottenheimer? The offense stunk it up the final five games and the play calling was atrocious all season long.

I’ll never forget sitting in the freezing rain/hail storm watching the Jets take the field aganst the Denver Broncos.  Nastiest conditions I’ve ever sat through, the hot chocolate was luke warm.  Everything was frozen and slippery.

What did the Jets do on their first posession?  Double reverse pitch to Cotchery who naturally fumbles the ball to the Broncos.  That’s a tricky play indoors under the best of conditions but during a Biblical rainstorm it belongs in the playbook to be pulled out another day.  I know that.  You know that.  How come the Offensive coordinator who’s getting paid boatloads of cash doesn’t know that?


That’s just one glaring example in a season where the awful playcalling was one of the few consistencies the Jets had to offer.  The front office wasted no time in firing Mangini.  The Defensive Coordinator is practically gone already- they’re just waiting to make a decision on the head coach before they fill that slot.  So why, I ask again, is Schotty even being interviewed for a head coaching position? 

According to Brian Costello in Tuesday’s Post Schottenheimer interviewed and “impressed many in the organization.”  For real?  Impressed them how?  With his last name?  Schottenheimer has done nothing to brag about in his tenure with the Jets; never breaking the top ten in offense, never winning a playoff game, and never using the right tool at the right time.  The guy out thinks himself, his quarterback, his offensive line, his fan base, the commentators, Joe Namaths’ mom…everybody!  and it doesn’t work!  The Jets had the AFC’s leading rusher and yet how many times this season did you see a 3rd & 1 result in an incomplete pass?  WTF!  This guy is a major part of the problem, so why is he even mentioned when looking to the solution?

I’m serious people.  I don’t get it.  Do you?
