Apparently, the days of ground-and-pound in New York are over, and the speculation about another controversial quarterback has already begun.
According to multiple reports, the Jets are going to hire former Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg to replace Tony Sparano.
After the Jets finished 30th in the league in offense, that’s no surprise. But Mornhinweg represents a significant stylistic change for head coach Rex Ryan and the Jets considering Mornhinweg’s West Coast Offense background and heavy lean toward the passing game.
The New York Daily News points out that this increases the possibility of pursuing Michael Vick, if new Eagles coach Chip Kelly doesn’t keep him.
There are about eight layers of chaos that would ensue if that happened, but nothing about the Jets makes you think they wouldn’t welcome it, or that it wouldn’t be an upgrade over Mark Sanchez and what they’ve been doing.
