    Looks like Arthur Smith was being targeted but not for a clear-cut OC job. Sounds like they'd love to fire Hackett, but are stuck with him. Is this not the most typical Jets BS you've ever seen?...


    The Athletic’s Dianna Russini reports the Jets interviewed Steelers OC Arthur Smith about “possibly being part of the play-calling process,” this season.

    As we now know, Smith didn’t take the role, instead landing the offensive coordinator job with the Steelers. ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio later learned that part of the reason Smith didn’t take the job with the Jets was “because the role wasn’t clear.” On the one hand, it’s not surprising to learn that the Jets sought out an assistant for Hackett, whose struggles have been amplified since his one-and-done season as head coach of the Broncos in 2022. Hackett was brought in last season at the request of Aaron Rodgers, who has continuously stuck by the OC due to their previous relationship at Green Bay. Hackett, along with head coach Robert Saleh, both enter this season on the hot seat after any hopes of success in 2023 were dashed by Rodgers’ Achilles injury. Assuming Rodgers is healthy and playing well, Hackett should be fine. However, if things start to go awry, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Saleh turn over play-calling duties to someone else. The Jets’ first training camp practice is scheduled for July 24.

    How this franchise can look anyone in the face and claim to be a serious is beyond me.

    We're really just in this thing so that the other 31 teams have slightly better odds of winning it all.

    If you're wondering why I voted no on the Jets winning the division, it's these IQ of 69 things that are the reason.

    Well either it was Arthur Smith Or Bust, the other guys didn't pick up the phone, or Smith is just the only one that thought to rub the Jets' faces in it publicly.

    I guess there is also the possibility that the same leaker from the earlier Russini hit piece dished on this too.

    One of the networks or streaming services should really make a workplace comedy about the Jets. Although a straight up documentary would accomplish the same thing and generate about the same amount of laughter.
