No way is Mangini ready to be a head coach, and BB knows it. While I'm sure BB is disappointed to lose his promising young coordinator, I'll bet he's happy Mangini is landing with the Jets. Mangini was a gifted work-in-progress as defensive coordinator, but a WORK IN PROGRESS nonetheless. Plus, he has no expertise on the offensive side of the ball. If I were a Jets fan, I'd be tearing my hair out and screaming for Bradway's lynching. The Jets need stability, and won't get it with a green kid (no pun intended) like Eric. For more, check out this snippet from today's Herald: Despite the deal, questions remain regarding ManginiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s readiness to become a head coach. According to Patriots sources, he wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t always a take-charge type during defensive meetings this season, his first as defensive coordinator after five coaching the secondary. During the first half of the season in particular, a source said, he often acted more like he still had his old job than his new one. The result was a defensive game plan that minimized exposing the patchwork secondary at the expense of aggressiveness up front. The Patriots were ranked 31st in overall defense (386.3 yards per game) when the decision came to turn loose the front seven before the Dec. 4 game against the Jets. Tellingly, that decision came not from Mangini but frustrated head coach Bill Belichick. The result was one of the best defensive units in the league over the final six weeks of the season.
