    He didn't walk out. He (secretly, IIRC) got the UColorado job but was intending to play out the season. When the news leaked, the Sullivans suspended him for the final game or games of the regular season, but reinstated him for the playoffs (which was a crushing administered by the Oilers if my memory serves correctly).

    Ok -- here's what Wikipedia says. Having read that, it is not at variance with what I can remember (I was only 10 at the time :)

    You said he called him out before the SB then won. I accept you meant something else, but that is what you said. I can only respond to your words, not what is in your head.
    Well first we are talking about him as a Head Coach, and second I simply realted what he has done vs the Patriots, which is not at all impressive. You said he "he had no problems shutting down our offense when he had the weapons." which is totally incorrect outside of a couple of good games. 30 ppg over 9 games is not 'having no problem shutting down an offense' by any interpretation.


    I say he should have figured out by now Sanchez blows. Why not play McElroy? Sanchez is obivously not the answer. Do you think BB would have stuck with him this long?

    Actually, my exact words were "he called out Steve Young leading up to the Superbowl". Kind of you to accept that I meant something else.
    I never stated "Head Coach". I said he was a good coach. "WE" is your perception.
    In regards to points and wins;
    2009 was his first year at the Jets head coach, we split as they held us to 9 points in a loss
    2010 was his second year, we split as they held us to 14 points in a loss
    2010 was his third year, we won both season games, they beat us in the playoffs as they held us to 21 points.
    We trounced them in 2011 and they lost their Island in 2012.

    I don't know what BB would do. Just that the Jets will probably trade or draft a qb next year.

    If this is true (if!) then I think the blame goes to the Sullivans. Shmessy, are you prepared to open your heart and forgive him after 35 years?

    This statement oozes of entitlment. Woody Johnson couldn't hold Billy Sullivan's jockstrap.

    I'd agree that Billy, Chuck and Pat wern't exactly the triumvirate of fooball genius, were sometimes irrational and not exactly rich owners that could cover up their mistakes but they were self-made men (Billy because he was the dad), founded the region's 1st NFL franchise, got them sucessful out of the gate, built a stadium, hired good people (most of the time) and were owners during the team's 1st SB appearance (should have been two if you count 1976).

    Is he Kraft? Not even close but he blows a silver-spooned, asleep-at-the wheel Woody Johnson out of the water.
