New York Jets new O.C (Reports - Marty Mornhinweg hired)

New York Jets new O.C (Reports - Marty Mornhinweg hired) 


I felt this merited it's own thread.
There are many candidates out there as to when Tony Sparano is relieved of his play calling duties.
ESPN has stated that Rex Ryan is strongly vying to bring in Norv Turner-

If this does indeed occur, i feel the Jets will push very strong to acquire Alex Smith from the 49ers.  Norv began grooming Smith and started to shape him into a boom instead of the downward spiral he was headed.
IMHO, this candidate may come to fruition if Tom Gamble is our GM, as he also worked with Norv in SF.

If this doesnt occur, i feel the next runner up may be Cam Cameron.  Rex can make a legitamately strong argument that he and Cam's system worked very well together down in Baltimore.

Other notable ones:
Chan Gailey
Pat Shurmur
Ken Whisenhunt {though i feel he'll be named head coach at Buffalo}

Good read from Brian Bassett:

"Still as far as the ground and pound, Turner’s offense won’t be what Rex has said he needs to run his team. Maybe he’s re-thought that notion. Instead of running the ball to hide the passer, he’d rather just have an effective passer."

I'd love to have Norv Turner. Of course, Tina Turner would be an upgrade, too.

A Gamble/Turner hiring would have the potential to relegate Rex to a defense-focused role, which I would welcome. I see some potential conflicts, however, as Norv would be Gamble's guy, and Rex might feel threatened. I know I don't want Norv as the HC if Rex were to lose that pi$$ing contest, so that scenario might pose some significant risks.

Rotoworld is reporting that Rex wants Norv, but I really have no idea why he would come to this mess, unless of course he gets alot of $$$$$$$$

Whisenhunt is supposedly Cleveland's back-up plan if they don't land Chip Kelly (who is scheduled to interview with Cleveland tomorrow_.  O'brian is a dark horse for Cleveland's job too.  I hate to see him leave Penn State.

True, but we need a QB, RB, line help, maybe new TE, and another Wr most likely. We also aren't in great cap shape.

I would love getting Norv, but I agree.  If Dallas wants him, he'd have to like their offensive talent more, and the money would be just as good I'm sure, and he'd probably even like his chances better of succeeding the incumbent.  That said, if he turns the Jets ofense around, he'd be viewed as a GOD.  How does he feel about Rex?  Remember the whole "if I coached those SD teams, we'd have won a Super Bowl" comment?  Norv was pissed.  So pissed, the Chargers jumped on us in the game, then folded like a lawn chair.

Well we better decide on a GM quick bc I imagine that Norv wont stay on the market long. I mean we could just sign norv w/o a GM but will prob limit the number of legit canidates that will be attracted to the job.

If Rex stays, I wonder if Hue Jackson is in play. That's who Ryan wanted in 2009 but agreed to keep Schotty.

John Clayton took his weekly shot at the Jets, talking about how unlikely it is for Norv to want to join the Jets.

Get used to it. Other jobs will be portrayed as opportunities. The Jets jobs will continue to be bashed. If the media are right, nobody will actually want to coach or play for the Jets.

Not willing to settle for anything less than a role as a head coach to leave Cincy from what I gather.

Considering the shot Rex took at Norv before the game at SD last year, I wouldn't be at all surprised that it (Norv putting that behind him to come to NY and report to Rex) is unlikely. In fact, I imagine the only reason Norv would come here would be to take over for Rex.

I agree with that. Rex doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut.

If that was the reason given, I could see it. But it wasn't. Clayton acted like the Jets were the only team in relative turmoil, where pretty much every team with a GM, HC, or coordinator vacancy is in similar circumstances.

True. Why don't we just shut the team down? According to the media it's hopeless. I Have to say that all this bashing is really Pissing me off. It's just one joke after another. Enough already.

Re: New York Jets new O.C 


The Eagles, who branded themselves the "Dream Team," are almost a mirror image of the Jets, except they have underachieved even more over the past two seasons. Bad choices at QB, turnovers, loudmouth players...if anything, they have had even more drama, with some of the unfortunate issues surrounding Andy Reid's family, the Michael Vick situation out of prison, etc.

Yet the Jets are the joke, not the Eagles.

Since Woody Johnson became owner in 2000, we've had only 4 losing seasons. How that makes us a "joke" I'll never understand. Especially considering 2003 & 2005 & 2007 Pennington suffered serious shoulder injuries.

Re: New York Jets new O.C 


By waiting until a new GM comes in and fires Sparano, Rex might not be perceived as the bad guy who fired him.  In fact, he could make it seem like he tried to save him but was overruled by the new GM, thereby saving face. If he did this though, and the story out there about Rex wanting Norv is true, it would shine even more of a negative light on Rex and I would lose a lot of respect for him as he as portrayed himself as a brutally honest person, who says the buck stops with him.    

Most likely is that Woody issued a moratorium on all personnel moves until the new GM is in place, thereby tying Rex's hands.  Of course, as previously mentioned that does create a risk of losing a good candidate or 2 to other teams. 

Typical Jets - damned if you do, damned if you don't.
