Another set of eyes might help

It can’t hurt to have another set of eyes.

When you lose the way the Jets did to a mediocre Indianapolis Colts team, clearly there are myriad problems.

The Jets could probably use a consultant to review their football program.


Because of their power structure.

Their GM, coach and team president are all equal and report to owner Woody Johnson.

Johnson is a good man, but he’s a business man, and they have some serious FOOTBALL decisions to be made.

Since the GM, coach and president are all on the same level, if they made suggestions about the another guy’s department, it would be like backstabbing. Should equals in a corporate environment be critiquing each other? Probably not, unless somebody gets promoted.

Johnson’s right-hand man, the man who has his ear the most, is Ira Akselrad, a lawyer and money manager.

Akselrad isn’t really equipped to make football decisions.

So with the Jets’ current power structure, it might be a good time to bring in a highly-regarded football consultant to review the operation and make some suggestions – a Mike Shanahan, a Tom Coughlin, a Bill Polian, somebody like that.

Sometimes when you are too close, you can’t see the forest for the trees.

So maybe an outside perspective would be helpful.
