Listen: New York Jets, Adam Gates, Nick Foles discussed on John Jastremski Show
"And the New York Jets obviously had conversations about Mike McCarthy potentially taking the job now when mccourty met with the New York Jets. According to Jason lockenfora. He had some concerns about the structure and composition of the front front office of the jets. How to productive interview with ownership? Team officials. This is coming from Jason lockenfora as the jets began deeper conversations with the finalist for the job it became clear. He was not going to mesh with their direction. Specifically sources said the jets asked to see a list of potential coaching staff so that they could pursue and consider the options McCarthy complied with the request but began to have reservations about the process at this point and was unsure if in fact, this would be a match. Listen. Luke warm on the idea bringing McCarthy and. I think the interest in Matt rule was far more legitimate. And I do believe that Matt rule may have been their number one target and then I'm on candidate. Sometimes these things work out. Now one thing you should be doing. If you hire head coach, let them is on staff. You want him to have people on staff that he's comfortable with that. He has a rapport with that. He's going to be able to get the most out of now, I get it. You have an offensive minded head coach you may want to have some semblance of saying. I'm sure the jets are with Greg Williams, for example, with Adam gays that they want let's say Greg Williams to be the defense going there. I can get that to some degree. But for the most part, I want my head coach signing off on all these things. And it would concern me a little bit. If the jets went through this process and ding get their number one choice because of staff qualifications. Now, I'm okay with the Adam gays. I as I told you guys Friday, I'm okay with the higher. No. Think any of these choices would have been slam dunks. No, I really don't. I there are questions about Mike McCarthy would have been a ton of questions about Matt rule. There will be questions now about gays. I also think Adam gays can couch. And if he's the guy that gets the most status, and I think a lot of these stories and points that are coming up kind of ended up being window when it's all said and done if the jets win and win big if they don't at zoom, and, you know, this if there are six and ten seventy nine teen, and the coach leaves a lot to be desired and the same questions you had in Miami are around this team then. Yeah, they'll be folks around the jets saying that we settle for a second or third choice when it comes to coach and his team, you know, when I first heard the news break about getting gays. I was heartbroken. I was completely heartbroken as a jets fan. I couldn't believe it. And I was. You know what I'm saying? I was heartbroken. But then I'm looking at things a little bit. Clearer now hiring. Greg Williams might have been one of the biggest moves that this team will make going forward because you look at your mall Adams. It's a very loud guy. He likes to talk. He gets something from being a little bit more extreme, you know, he's a vocal leader on that team. Greg Williams is going to be the guy that gets everything the jets have ever wanted or could imagine from black. So you're hoping Eddie. Opens. And that's all I can see. And you know, what if case can even get us a little bit of what Sam can be or just let Sam be Sam because he has confidence that you know, he has the Kahane's to make some of these throws other guys wouldn't make and that will get you in trouble. But it also make you some huge plays. You know, some of the best touchdown throws. He made this year might not have been the smartest Storrow. So. If case allows him to be him, they get the right weapons around him. I think this offense overrun with them. And the best thing also. And you know, this case loves rotating those running backs so you signed bell for a ton of money. He's not going to be taken to thirty carries. So he didn't Pittsburgh. He might do fifteen and get like three receptions. That's a lot better on a five year deal for running back, and I'd be very Leary there. We'll get a little bit later in the show, but Adam games going to work in a variety different running backs and equal quarterbacks. The question is could he manage a fifty three man roster? In a proper fashion, and you know, what at the end of Miami. The answer is not. That's my concern can connect can he relate with all the guys on his team not says the atom gays guys at zoom in you got to be able to connect with every guy. They don't have to like you. But you gotta command and demand the respect, and you got to be accountable, whatever player in that locker room. So you agree that he does kind of have an issue with maybe choosing some favorites and go down that was the issue Miami. Listen guys that would run into a brick wall for Adam gas every quarterback he worked with tannehill Cutler matting Tibo, then won't say they're worried about they love the guy. But you gotta be able to connect with all the guys in the locker room. Do you think he got short ended up sick? No forces way out. So you don't think if you were the GM owner, whatever of Miami, you wouldn't have fired. Adam gay slots, the dolphins wanna fire Adam gates. I think the dolphins wanted change in a way Adam gays was handling certain situations. And basically it was like I'm going to do with Adam gays going to do and they said, well, you could do that somewhere else. And he said that God that's why the jets fan. I feel a lot more confident about this higher. Look now, it's about Warner from your mistakes, really as simple as that. Let's head to queens. Dave I'll next on the fan. What's up? Dave. Dave. What's happening, dude? How you doing? All right. Sunny afternoon, taking the money with bouncing around everywhere. Dave here there and everywhere. It's an all Beatles. Revolver, I'm pulling that one out of the baggage checks. So he got that. And you do a fabulous job at it. Tell you a little story. I. Up bridge and then went to Maryland with the fan. Uh-huh. Tickets per week. And then I played for the weekend. There. Rams gps. I got charges, and I got the Saint, but some say well there you go see two for two right now. Now is it a four team or do you have four individual wages? Oh, okay. So you're guaranteed to cash to now. We'll see if you're going to be cashing two more. The next time you end up at that fan does sportsbook. Probably be Monday. Catch him. You're gonna have to wait and see if five forty if I'm on the same page as you are with the chargers and with the New Orleans Saints. We'll have to wait and see how leaning with both of those games. Two chickens. 'cause you're either betting against the more talented charge team. You bet against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in their own building. Or you're going up against to me the most impressive team at all football all year in New Orleans. On a foot side, you're going against the. Juju and the voodoo that Nick foles in the Philadelphia Eagles bring to the table to very difficult cancer handicap down a red Bank, New Jersey, Nick joins us, Nick. On the fan. Gay gay, Nick, what's up out? He got is not you know that the colts had like a bad omen yesterday. Going into the game. What was that? Okay. Yesterday was the sixty year anniversary of the Super Bowl, right? Joey won't Joe Willie New York jas right side to the day. That was the day was the day. So you know, they had to be thinking on these days. Day is not March. Well for us. Let me ask you one thing. What Janik hausky what's the word on him? Well, what does it matter, Nick? I mean the Seahawks out of the playoffs. I mean, what am I thinking? He's on the charges. You don't have any like who the hell cares about Sebastian Janikowski at this point. Now, the injury dispassionate Jankowski. Let's just say cost a couple of people so shackles last weekend, depending on where you got the Cowboys and that turn of events and why you know, you had two point conversions and all the wacky stuff. Yeah. Going on in that ball game. But I could care less about Janikowski now move forward until next year Columbia, New Jersey. Bob joins us. What's up, Bob? Good morning. About the Cowboys lost tonight. Better could have happened. On another subject giants going forward with Eli. I. We all know what the future is in March. They choose to pay the phone us and go forward we're going to have more of the same mediocre. Maybe eight nine win season. I don't see anything better than that going for with Eli. If if they choose to cut their losses. We'll probably get worse before we get better. But I I think the time, and that's all I have to say for now, I can't fully on appreciate call Jackson, a very weird predicament. They got six picking the jazz. They got star running back Tom notch wide receiver. There's some pieces you like on the elephants side of the ball to gotta get better on the line. That goes without saying they gotta find their quarterback of the future. Not an easy thing to do. But they got a lot of holes on the other side of the ball to jazz giggle variety different ways in the first annual, okay. Giants. Joe williams. Let's say an offensive tackle. You're gonna fault that pick Noah giants, and they'll put a premium pass rusher something they desperately need. Something defense has been lacking. You're gonna fold that pick. I can't giants end up taking a guy like Dwayne has skins calamari. Jazzy going any of those three directions. And you know, what I'm gonna say fills in it. Let's at the queen's Baltasar up next on the families up Balthasar. Hey, hi, how are you? Don, I feel like it. That off the top. I appreciate that, man. That's a very lofty standard Baltasar a lotta people been doing this, man. So thank you. That means a lot. So I just wanted to. I wanted to talk about I I want to tell you about a little bit. Make a comment about the eagles. I I with you to a point about the eagles. I feel that you know, that guy was otherworldly in the Super Bowl both. I think he did good against the against the best. But they just barely squeaked out for that. You know, that was nerve wracking. Listen they were down in that ball game against one of the best defense in the league. They need a big boy drive. They need a fourth down conversion. Back and forth over now. You're right Chicago could've hit a field goal. Could've sent the eagles packing. They didn't the point is. Well, I think the eagles are as good as New Orleans. Absolutely not do. I think the eagles are as good as the ranch. I think there is good as Kansas City or the LA chargers and New England. No. But they have the magic for whatever. The reason is when Nick foles is under center good things happen at franchise allow for him, right? They go all out for him. You're right about that. And it's one of those things in sports. You really can't explain and you go back to last year last year. The eagles are playing great. With Carson Wentz dish, you didn't happen. I don't know if it was Carson Wentz trying to do too much. I don't know if it's simplification of the poi- balking one guys that Doma Nick foles on the Senate. I can't explain it. They've played better gavitt different walk a different feel when he's the quarterback. We'll see if that continues on Sunday eight seven seven hundred thirty seven sixty six sixty six it's JJ after Dax ski yesterday right here on the."
