We know he wasn't a good hc.. Lets hope he can handle the o-line duties effectively. Sometimes when these coaches fail at hc,, the can do wonders as an assistant if in the right system . Let's hope that is the case here.

Gonna want to have a doctor check Long out 1st. He's becoming a cripple. And it's a damn shame, as when he's healthy he's as good a LT as anyone.

Why not? He is an Agent for Lechler
He made the JETS master his 3 and out offensive philosophy
Lechler will be an All-Pro next year

Well since he was willing to take the demotion from HC, I think he should do all right, but my boys gotta prove it to me on the field on game day, not practice nor the media. That's why I haven't bought any jerseys of any modern day players. I do have a Stefan Wisniewski one that was given to me for Christmas last year. I know the guy were talking about here is a coach but still, he's got to do his job
