Remember when the Packers were criticized for firing coach Mike McCarthy with a month left in the season? As we argued at the time Drew Sample Jersey , that’s far better than the alternative.The alternative is this: Working secretly behind the coach’s back to line up potential replacements before firing the head coach, finagling a head start on the process before severing ties with current coach.Manish Mehta of the reports that the Jets did just that, and that the effort included a late November/early December meeting between CEO Christopher Johnson, now-former G.M. Mike Maccagnan, now-former V.P. of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger, and agent Erik Burkhardt. The goal was to discuss the possibility of hiring Kliff Kingsbury to become the team’s new head coach.Mehta also reports that Johnson engaged in other efforts to explore replacement coaches without Maccagnan’s knowledge or involvement. Johnson used an intermediary to touch base with two “established head coaches” who would have had the power to keep or to fire Maccagan. (It’s unclear whether the “established head coaches” were coaching other NFL teams at the time; if that’s the case, it would open a separate can of worms for the Jets under the tampering policy.)Moreover , Mehta confirms that the Jets also made overtures to Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh before firing Bowles. PFT reported in December that the Jets intended to make a run at Jim Harbaugh. Johnson quickly issued a statement denying that, but we stood by our report.As Jets coach Adam Gase said last Thursday, none of this matters if the Jets win. And he’s right. If they keep losing, however, fans will continue to point to this and other evidence of dysfunction, forcing them at some point to do what not long ago would have been unthinkable: Count the days until Woody Johnson returns to reclaim day-to-day control of the team. Two years ago, then-rookie running back Dalvin Cook was having an Adrian-Peterson-as-a-rookie-style impact on the Vikings. A non-contact torn ACL got in the way of what would have been a special season.Now Ryan Finley Jersey , Cook is healthy and, somehow, even better than he was as a rookie. In his third straight 100-yard game of the year, Cook performed like a man among boys, constantly cutting and twisting and bursting his way to more and more yardage. With uncanny explosion, he zips through the line and disappears into the second level, and beyond , on almost every single play.For the season, Cook has a league-leading 375 rushing yards — and he’s averaging 6.6 yards per carry. That puts him exactly on pace for 2,000 rushing yards. And, yes, he’s good enough to do it.At some point, defenses will overcommit to stopping him, although it may not matter. But what that will do is create even more chances for a passing game that has Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen Michael Jordan Jersey , eventually establishing the kind of pick-your-poison offense that the Vikings haven’t had since 2000, the year of the Four Norsemen of the Apocalypse — Randy Moss, Cris Carter, Robert Smith, and *numoderuota* Culpepper.Still, those Vikings passed to set up the run. These Vikings need to run to set up the pass. Or run to set up more running.With Cook and high-end understudies like Alexander Mattison and Mike Boone, the Vikings may be able to do it. Given the presence of a defense far better than any defense the Vikings had in the golden days of Randy Moss , maybe this could be a team that wins big games during the regular season (starting next Sunday at Chicago) and, eventually, multiple games in the postseason.As long as they make the running back and not the quarterback the focal point of the offense, it’s not such a far-fetched possibility.
