With everything that's happened since the end of the season, I get the sense of a new approach being taken by the Jets. In the past it seemed like the Jets - Woody - believed he was doing people a favor by hiring them, and only hired people who agreed to that relationship. Hiring first timers as HC and GM - Rex, Idzik, Macc, Bowles - allowed Woody to basically dictate the terms since they (ostensibly) didn't have any leverage. But with Douglas - also a first timer - we see him push back and not simply take whatever was offered. Basically he said "If you want me, prove it. Show me the money!" And rather than pass on him and go to the next sucker on the list, Chris blinked. And that's a good thing. I think Macc knew he was in over his head and was thrilled to even be offered the job; Douglas on the other hand knows his value and would only take the job if the Johnsons acknowledged that value too. I feel confident that we have the right guy now who will push back against the Johnsons and Gase if needed. I'm finally ALMOST optimistic.
