Jets need to ignore these people at all costs Dan Leberfeld

In the process of looking for a coach, the Jets need to ignore the advice of certain kinds of people.

They need to stay away league-appointed consultants with agendas. So often these guys push people who used to work with them.

Also, don’t listen to NFL reporters pushing “hot” candidates. So often these “insiders” push coaches who leak stuff to them. So, in return for scoops, these NFL insiders push these guys for head coaching jobs.

Or they push candidates represented by agents who consistently leak stories to them.

You know the old saying, “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.”

This is quid pro quo journalism, so ignore what these people say about “hot” candidates you should hire.

Do your own research and ignore people with agendas who aren’t looking out for your best interests.
