Jets should not force Dan Leberfeld

New Jersey – Mike Maccagnan has emerged as a favorite for the Jets’ GM job.

If he does get the job, the Jets need to make him an integral part of their search for a head coach.

Woody Johnson and the consultants should not force a head coach on him.

After two years of the head coach and GM not always being on the same page, the Jets need to make sure their new coach and GM are in lockstep ideologically.

Let’s say Maccagnan is hired, and he prefers somebody like Doug Marrone or Gary Kubiak over Dan Quinn, don’t force Quinn on him.

The Jets need to hire a GM first, and get him heavily involved in the coach interviews.

And his vote for who the new coach should be, probably should be the most important one in the board room.
