Terry Bradway just said on WFAN he's coming up to interview Mangini this week. Interesting.
This is starting to really piss me off. Mangini needs to focus on Denver this week.
I didn't think coaches still in the playoffs could be interviewed. I'm a little surprised Mangini is getting this much attention. His defense injuries or not didn't even start coming on until late in the season.
I predict that if Mangini is hired by the NYJ then our new DC will be Rob Ryan or Pepper J.
It looks like BB isn't too concerned about since the Pats had to give permission for the interview.
I thought they could only interview during the bye week and then it was all hands off until the playoffs were over.
They said on Mike and the Mad Dog that they changed the rule and with the Clubs permission interviews could be done. I think they said this was the week last year that Romeo pretty much secured the Browns job.
This is bullshlt if it's true. Mangini needs to focus, dammit.
Well if that's the case, I have to wonder what the HELL BB is thinking about?
We have a game to prepare for. I am sick and tired of this organization giving their people away. He just started coordinating the defense properly and now just like that he'll be out the door?
THIS SUCKS, and I have to question the intelligence of BB on this one.
I'm sure BB remembers how he was denied the opportunity to interview for HC jobs by Parcells. Perhaps BB thinks it's better for the Team, plus it's really going to motivate Mangini to in his preparations for Denver. If our D comes out strong, Mangini has a better shot at an HC job.
This could be BB's way of screwing the Jets too. Have Mangini string them along until the end of the playoffs, hoping that most of the top candidates have been hired leaving what's left over for the Jets.
Nah, that's TOO crazy.
agreed....But can we blame the Jets for wanting to talk to probably the best prospect out there? In the long run, I don't think that looks like a job that a first year coordinator wants to take. The J-E-T-S, are falling A - P-A-R-T.
I'm sure you're going to get rich questioning the intelligence of Bill Belichick. I might suggest asking that question of your ******* mirror first, you moron.
Well that's great for the other team, but what about us?
There is no need for you to insult me and frankly I don't appreciate it. I am angry about this and I have a right to be. We just lost both of our coordinators last year, Mangini went through some growing pains for half a season. I was hoping for a little stability next season. Now we might lose our DC again. I don't know about you but I'm not happy about it at all.
i dont see the big deal.. the interview will take a few hours maybe.. romeo did it last year.. i dont htink it will be a distraction.. BB wouldnt allow it probably if he thought it would be..
I saw an interview with Martz yesterday (ESPN Outside the Lines, I think it was) and he said in no uncertain terms that he wouldn't consider anything but a head coaching job. I couldn't tell if you were serious about Martz and any possibility with the Pats, but anyway, there it is.
Actually, there is a need to insult you because your post shows the mentality of a 6 year old. Bill Belichick has done things in New England that most of us never thought possible, and when he does the right thing by allowing Eric the chance to interview for 1 of 32 head coaching jobs in the league (providing there's any truth to this rumor at all), you're right there to question Bill's intelligence. Like I said, start with who's in your mirror first.
Those people are human beings, they've done an incredible job here, and if they can be rewarded for it, I say great. An interview is not going to impact the outcome of this game this week one iota. Eric Mangini isn't Bill Parcells. You can't figure that out?
Just grow up. A couple of points for you to consider while you do:
1) How did we get our current head coach? Was he hatched? Or didn't you think about that?
2) the Patriots won three Super Bowls before they lost either of their coordinators, both of who deserved the shot they got. The Patriots have been extremely fortunate in this respect.
Try thinking rather than ranting. My money is with BB, not some internet guy who is not happy.
If Mangini goes to Jets all that will be needed then is for Pats asst. coach Josh McDaniels to end up as Bill's head coach to make the AFC East the Belichick Tree Division.
The NYJs are such a loser job, I think BB granted permissionn only with the assurance from Mangini that he won't take the job.
While interviewing allows him to raise his stock for the future, I hope Mangini is smart enough to see what has happened to so many other NYJ coaches careers.
The players were right and Mangini was wrong on that - but its not surprising to see his early season approach to the defense considering the injuries and abilities of our secondary
Given the loss of Harrison, and the play of Starks and the inexperience of others, is it any wonder coddled the secondary?
As the season progressed and Stone and some others developed (and as Mangini implemented a 4 CB scheme), the time was right to unleash the hounds among the front 7.
I guess I'm saying that earlier in the season, given injuries, I have some doubts as to whether we could have been as effectively agressive as we were later in the season.
NEM should want Mangini to bolt and be replaced by Ryan - now there's an aggressive coach.
I can't say I'm happy about all this but the "BelichickFan" in me is a little happy about the ridiculous tree that is being grown right now.
An interview will not be a problem, all we heard last year was that Weis was going to be "distracted" when he took the ND job in December, I think that worked out all right, no?
Having interviews is also a way these guys get thier names in the papers/electronic media for exposure. Even if Mangini doesn't want the job, which he'd be crazy to take, IMO, that fan base will be all over him from day 1, that exposure will make it more likely that other teams, this year or next, will think of him too.
I'm impressed with the tree but I'd much prefer to see the fruits of it landing in other freaking divisions then our own thank you!!
I am with you on this on DR! BB is the hottest coach in the NFL and everyone wants a piece of him, that is the curse of his success. I know that EM had some HC expirience with Austrailian Rules football, but I don't know if this qualifies him to run an NFL team.
Not to sound like a whiney Bill Polian, but the NFL really needs to change this rule!
what rule is that, specifically? And a follow up: did you think the NFL should change "that rule" when the Pats wanted Belichick to be their head coach?
And somehow I think it might be Eric's 11 years as an NFL coach and the numerous division, conference and league championships he's contributed to that would be the thing that 'qualifies' him, and not two years he spent in Australia when he was in college. You "don't know" if he's qualified, huh?
If Bradway, ex of the Superbowl, powerhouse KC Chiefs organization, wants to come up here to interview Master Mangini, great, its a cheap flight for your expense report (plus no overnight hotel needed).
I see this as nothing more than Head Coach interview practice for Mangini at this point.
A little more about Eric Mangini for those fans who have been too busy stamping their feet and holding their breath because of some big green meanies to learn anything about the guy they're talking about:
Mangini joined the Patriots after three seasons (1997- 99) as the defensive assistant/quality control coach for the New York Jets.
Hey, wait a minute.....how was THIS allowed to happen? The NFL really has to do something about these rules.
