Does anybody know how Jets will fare after coup? Dan Leberfeld

The New York Daily News back page stated “The Jets are the biggest joke in town again.”

This after the Thursday firing of GM Mike Maccagnan after he just ran free agency, the draft and helped pick the new coach.

WFAN’s Evan Roberts called Christopher and Woody Johnson “fools” after the news came out.

But the thing is none of us know how Adam Gase’s successful coup d’etat will turn out.

Don Mattlingly once said, “Nobody can see into the future. Nobody knows what’s going to happen.”

So it’s probably too early to call the Jets “the biggest joke in town” or “fools” before we see who they hire, and how they do once the real games start.

Now some might want to blast Gase for his bloodless coup, but that is an entirely different matter than how this is going to turn out.

So to label the Jets “a mess,” which is all over the internet following Adam Schefter’s announcement that Maccagnan was dismissed, might be premature.
