Brett has options on all his pass plays..he chooses the receiver to throw too..He is not making the right decisions sometimes and with his gunslinger mentality he trys squeezing the ball into tight spots.We all knew this before Brett ever became part of Gang Green.
.So Mangini should be ranting on the sidelines huh? He coaches full grown men and embarassing them in front of millions is not the way to go in the NFL. Mistakes and chewing out takes place during meetings behind closed doors not in front of millions..Its not high school Bob.

Totally agree with you Bob. Mangini makes all the wrong calls (and just very lucky to come out with a few wins)...they call pass when we should run and vice-versa. And the nonchalant attitude on the sideline and the gum chewing, yuck. Throw the gum out mangini, and learn to coach !!!

Bravo! Bob,
I couldn't have said it any better, I find my self thinking the same things when I'm watching this team, although with a lot more colorful language. What happen to the creative offensive of schottenheimer of two season ago.

"The Jets have only two interceptions all season."

Revis alone has three interceptions. Barrett and Eric Smith each have one. I think that adds up to five.

Agree totally, the coaching is absolutely horrible. May be time to pull the plug on this Mangini experiment and bring in a coach that plays to win, not to 'not lose'. Tannenbaum has done a good job of bringing in the players, now he has to see past his friendship with Mangini and bring in a coach.

Yeah bob, you're wrong on the interceptions stat that the Jets have. And even though I agree that I don't think Mangini is the right coach, I don't agree that he has to act like a raving lunatic either. Tom Landry didn't get emotional and I think he did pretty well as a coach. Not to mention Bill Belichick. I mean you want to talk about being totally emotionless, Belichick wrote the book on it, and we all know how he's done as a coach. I'd like to see more agressive plays being called on offense and defense, rather then him being agressive on the sideline.
And I think this IS a game that will decide what type of coach he is. He needs to understand that he needs to coach this team to a win this upcoming week, and show the league, the division, and the fans that he knows what he's doing and that he can coach in big games. If he loses this week, I think it'll be the beginning of the end for him.

EXACTLY my point, Bob. The arm-folded frown on the sideline seems to say ""this sucks but oh well". And in the worst of times you can see some Jets smiling and joking ... other teams take it seriously when they suck. This stuff scares me.

It will take some innovating coaching to beat Buffalo this week. Is Mangini up to it? He hasn't shown any evidence so far that he is. I'm afraid this will get ugly fast.

Mangini, if you hope to be a head coach next year, just note: EVERYBODY is watching!

I agree about Mangini. I was wondering if he was even interested in coaching this past sundays game. Wake up, man! Coach the damn team! And get some better play calling going on!@

C'mon Glauber when you get simple facts wrong like how many interceptions a team has, you lose any credibility. This is another dumb article by you, ur a weasel.

The JETS have been visibly outcoached this season from top to bottom. I'm far from a Patriots fan but I was thinking to myself as I watched the game on Sunday what would a good coach such as Belichek have done here! Belichek, just as he has done with a mediocre team this year to win his games, he turns these types of games into boring smash mouth football. Running the ball 60 times, running the clock and making sure the opponent never touches the ball as the Chiefs did to gain momentum. Mangini seems to miss these types of "IT" factors going into these games! The Chiefs would have barely touched the ball if a better coach had managed this and other games better this year! Poor Coaching is going to doom this team this year. It's written all over the game plans every Sunday. I'm just shocked to see the Media has not picked up on this as of yet!

You hit the nail on the head. What is wrong with the Jets is the coaching plain and simple. No emotion, no blitzing on D, passing 40 times against weak run D of KC. What disturbs me is what you pointed out. Flatline emotionally from HC Mangini. The genius who calls his offense game-plan specific (what does that even mean) can't get the best out of Favre. Lets hope Mr Johnson is watching and that he NOT another Leon Hess.

I agree Trends, the press has generally given Mangini a pass for a long time. He did some razzle-dazzle two years ago with some success, but it was really gimmick plays, not good coaching.

Belichick or Parcells (or a half dozen other coaches) would be able to squeeze alot more from this team.

I can't say this with any more conviction - Eric Mangini has Got TO GO. Today even. Let Westhoff run the team rest of season and make a pitch for Cowher or Jimmy Johnson. Jets NEED a coach with fire in his belly - not just a couple of cheesesteaks. Offensively and defensively Jets have played down to level of competition. W/ young QB at helm for KC defense shows NO BLITZES, and dropes eight into soft Cover Two, which young gun rips apart. Plain and simple Jets were LUCKY to win vs KC and Jets luck has never run very hot.

Tom Landry and Belichick both are disciplinarians who don't need to show much emotion to motivate team. With these guys it was perform or your gone. Mangini even undermines his own K, by keeping Nugent on the roster. What is Feely supposed to think? Can I win a job here or am I gone as soon as Nugent is well. K 's are the most replaceable commodity in football.

"The not-so-good: The Jets have only five interceptions all season"
