Jets Fire Clueless 'Man-Genius'

Two years ago Eric Mangini was feted as a celebrity in New York while fans howled for the scalp of Tom Coughlin.

My, how times quickly change. Heck, six weeks ago Jets fan were salivating over a possible Super Bowl bid.
Black Monday continues, but takes a somewhat surprising twist. has learned that the Jets have fired head coach Eric Mangini.

Players began getting calls from team officials this morning informing them of the move, telling them that it will be announced at 10 a.m. ET and that GM Mike Tannenbaum, who appears to be safe, will be addressing the team at noon.

The Jets suffered an abysmal collapse, which unfortunately is nothing new for the organization.
In a surprise to nobody, the architect of the 0-16 Detroit Lions is also looking for employment.

If Jerry Jones has any self-respect Wade Phillips would be unemployed by the end of the day.
