Something to ponder about the Jets search . . . Dan Leberfeld

It looks like long-time Houston Texans executive Mike Maccagnan is going to be the Jets’ next GM.

So who will be the coach?

Most arrows point to Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn getting that job.

But, you have to wonder, if Woody Johnson told Maccagnan – “Mike, it’s totally up to you who the Jets’ head coach is going to be. You make the call,” what would his answer be?

It’s clear the Johnson loves Quinn, who seems like a very good candidate.

But in his heart of hearts, would that be Maccagnan’s choice?

Let’s be honest, Maccagnan wants to be an NFL GM very badly. He’s been working towards this day for the last two decades.

I’m not saying he doesn’t like Quinn. I’m sure he does.

But while Maccagnan is a fine candidate, it’s not like he has a lot of other offers.

Do you really think he’s going to fight with Johnson over this, and risk not getting the job?

Maccagnan has a background with Doug Marrone and Gary Kubiak.

We are unaware of any connection to Quinn.

Once again, don’t get me wrong. I like Quinn as a candidate. The guy has paid his dues. From what I hear, he’s an outside the box thinker, which is always a good thing.

I’m just asking the question – if you left this decision entirely up to Maccagnan, who would he pick?
