Peter King reported Saturday that Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is one of many coaches Buffalo still plans to interview for their head coaching position.
New G.M. Buddy Nix and owner Ralph Wilson must have liked what they saw Saturday night.
Schottenheimer called a fantastic game against the Bengals. Mark Sanchez had only three incompletions, and two of them were drops. There were often receivers wide open against a talented Bengals secondary.
The Jets featured rookie Shonn Greene over Thomas Jones and the rookie responded with 135 yards. Dustin Keller was used very well at tight end and the kid even blocks now.
One game shouldn’t mean very much, but the reality is that “hot” coaches from the playoffs often get jobs. If Nix was predisposed to Schotteheimer before Saturday, he may have an easier job selling Marty’s son to Wilson now.
