I wouldn't say never change the scheme, but we certainly need some consistency and stability. This is the key point for me as we move forward. I have commented about this a couple of times already, but it isn't the changing of HCs itself that has been the problem for the Jets. It has been the constant changing of schemes each new time a new HC was hired and either one or both of the schemes were changed, so as a result, our roster had to keep turning over, and the players that were retained had to learn a totally new system. That's why good players like Jonathan Vilma and others were traded. It's absolutely insane. IMO Douglas needs to decide upon what schemes that we will run for the foreseeable future, and then stick to them. Hopefully, with the hire he makes, the HC will be successful and can be here a long time, so the schemes won't have to change. I would hope that even if coordinators changes, that the HC would stick with the same basic schemes and hire new coordinators adept at those schemes. I may be mistaken, but I think that's what teams like the Steelers, the Ravens, and the Patriots have done, what the 49ers did, and that led to great stability. Of course some systems go out of "fashion" so at some point, they may need to be changed, and as players retire or are replaced, the systems should be tweaked to adjust to the talent of the new players rather than forcing them to fit into a system for which they aren't a good fit. That's where the HC and GM must work together to identify players who are the right scheme fits and draft them, rather than taking BPAs and hoping that they will fit. IMO any competent OC ought to be able to run any offensive scheme. He may have one that he prefers above all the rest, but he should be willing to be flexible, adjust and adapt as necessary. I hope these Coordinators who have a set system and expect that all players have to fit into and adapt to their system rather than vice versa, will soon go the way of the dinosaurs. IMO it's lazy, egotistical, inefficient, wastes talent, has an adverse affect on teams and on W-L records, and I hope those types of coordinators never exist again. As far as Bieniemy, if he is hired it should be as a CEO, and the play calling should be left up to the OC he hires. I have zero interest in his learning how to call plays on our dime. I wouldn't have a problem with his implementing Reid's scheme or Bieniemy's version of Reid's scheme as long as we have the personnel to fit it and wouldn't have to get rid of Bectorn or Mims or Crowder. With the NFL adapting more and more college schemes, I'd rather the Jets be on the leading edge of something for once, rather than 10 years behind everyone else. I wouldn't want the HC to be totally uninvolved with the side of the ball where he has expertise, as that would not be taking full advantage of his talents and knowledge. I think the schemes should come from the HC rather than the coordinators. That's how one would maintain consistency; otherwise, every time a coordinator changed, schemes/system would change. Again, I'm hoping that Douglas makes the right hire and that HC will be here for at least 15-20 years so we have a long period of stability using the same systems, being able to keep good players that we drafted, and not have all the constant turnover. You're not overthinking this at all, Red, at least not imo. I think it all just depends upon what Douglas means by "CEO." There are different ways he could go with that.
