It was a relatively eventful weekend for the Jets’ coaching search. It was also a very eventful weekend for the NFL as the Playoffs got started. On today’s podcast we will talk about both.
The Jets conducted an interview with former Packers coach Mike McCarthy. Reports indicate the interview went really well, and there is mutual interest. It seems as though McCarthy might be the favorite at this point in time. In other news, the Jets gained a potential candidate in Baylor coach Matt Rhule and lost a potential candidate in USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury as the school reportedly has denied the Jets’ interview request. For some odd reason, the NFL is backing the school.
The first weekend of the NFL Playoffs is now complete. Three of the four road teams won. The Colts, Cowboys, Chargers, and Eagles join the Patriots, Chiefs, Rams, and Saints in next weekend’s Divisional round. We will discuss some of the key notes from this weekend’s game.
