  • we have breaking news here into first take our Adam Schefter is reporting that the Jets have fired defensive coordinator Gregg Williams again.

  • The Jets have fired defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

  • Stephen, I talked to May.

  • Well, um, what we I think what we need to say at this particular moment in time.

  • I mean, you know, you know, I'm not gonna laugh at somebody who fired or anything like that.

  • Um, but it's clear that he deserved it.

  • Uh, that was one of the worst calls we've ever seen.

  • We understand that.

  • But when you hear the things that have been said about him and you consider his resume, um, I sincerely hope that, you know, he has a nice pension plan or whatever, because I think this is his last job in the National Football League.

  • He's been in there for 22 years.

  • Hey was associated with Bounty Gate, which would force them to ultimately get suspended.

  • Obviously, he didn't have the greatest relationship in Cleveland with Freddie Kitchens and Todd Haley before they were, you know, I'm talking about Todd, Todd, Haley and, uh, Freddie Kitchens.

  • But, you know, ultimately, you know, he took over an interim basis for Hugh Jackson.

  • Once you Jackson was let go.

  • And then obviously there was some relationship issues.

  • There he get arrives in the New York Jets, he's running the defense.

  • Andi, you got players.

  • Numerous players that were clearly frustrated, including, specifically markets.

  • May out of Florida four years in the National Football League literally goes into the postgame conference and say, We have to execute, but you gotta help us.

  • You gotta put us in the right position and call it calling a cover zero blitz and giving no help on the on the outside toe toe.

  • Lamar Jackson when he's covering Henry rugs and you have no safety help over the top whatsoever.

  • It's just so flagrantly bad, so unnecessary, so inept that to get fired in the immediate aftermath of that being 62 years of age.

  • Being in the league for 22 years.

  • Um, I think this is probably his last job in the NFL, certainly is a coordinator because I think it's the combination of the chances he takes, how it's not even questions about his intellect.

  • It's his ego that gets in the way, which gives the impression that he is difficult to deal with.

  • I think all of those things being taken into consideration, I'd be hard pressed.

  • Toe.

  • Imagine that somebody else is going to hire him.

  • Is their defensive coordinator when you've got the second worst defense in the National Football League right now and you've just been fired with four games left in the season Because this is the lasting memory, the indelible mark that you've punctuated your career with.

  • I don't see him getting another job after this.

  • First, I need to say about Greg Williams because Bounty Gates always the first thing people talk about.

  • I always thought that was nonsense.

  • If you play a full contact sport and Stephen A, you follow the fight game, part of the strategy is breaking down in the body, you know, through attrition, and then you you go upstairs.

  • I mean, like in football.

  • As long as you're not being told to do anything illegal, if you're like, hey, I'll give you a little bonus like a fun thing you do with the team or a motivational thing.

  • If you knocked that guy out within the rules, if you injure him, that's part of football is creating injury In fact, that could be part of your strategy when you wear another team down, a bruising running back, a defense, whatever it is.

  • So I always thought, the NFL, that's really you know Which way is the wind blowing?

  • Let's protect our bottom line and show we mean business with this guy When he didn't actually, as far as I could tell, break the rules.

  • Nevertheless, that's what happened.

  • So I'm gonna put Bounty Gate aside.

  • I thought he did a good job with the Cleveland Browns.

  • It's an interim coach.

  • So did you.

  • In fact, Steven, if I'm not mistaken, you suggested maybe they should hire Greg Williams.

  • I know maybe I didn't mean people.

  • E did say that.

  • Yes, E did.

  • This is what I'll say if you make a play call.

  • And afterwards, defenders on your own team are calling you out.

  • Your head coach is not backing you up when you're basically you're in charge of the defense, you have autonomy.

  • Your own player calls you out on the defense.

  • Your head coach doesn't back you up.

  • The opposing quarterback thanks you for the play.

  • Call every media member and every fan knows it was an idiotic play call.

  • That's bad enough.

  • What's worse is when you talk about ego Stephen A.

  • It was, though he was saying, This is the way I do things come hell or high water.

  • And when the Jets a winless team, they're gonna pick first.

  • Regardless, right, a winless team have played hard and they're in a position toe win, and you put your own.

  • Well, this is the way I do things ahead of putting them in the best position to win.

  • That's the straw that breaks the camel's back.

  • Stephen A.

  • When you think about play calls, it's funny.

  • We argued earlier in the show what was the dumbest play of the year.

  • You argued Falcons, I argued Greg Williams, but what was the upshot?

  • In both cases, Dan Quinn essentially was fired.

  • Maybe not exactly directly as a result of that, but maybe.

  • And now Greg Williams is fired.

  • These these these this was so bad, you have to get rid of the guy.

  • Hey, listen, Like I said, I don't ignore Bounty Gate because even though we could absolve the players, you know the bottom line is the the NFL Rather found him guilty.

  • They weren't they weren't paying trying to pay players for performance.

  • They were trying to pay players to actually injure other players, you know, getting caught it off the field and things of that nature.

  • But But again, I'm not gonna revisit that.

  • That's just the NFL's position.

  • We understand that.

  • But in the end, 22 years in the NFL and this is how it ends, Um, I'm hard pressed to see him getting another job asleep.

  • There's a coordinator.

  • I'm hard pressed for that.

  • Look at what Greg has been and you could go back.

  • I think two years ago, when he was in Cleveland, they finished the game very similar to this against the Denver Broncos and vast Joseph at the time.

  • Like this is just who he is, and it is ego, and it is part of that ego making you feel like you're weight is right.

  • And that's what Gregg Williams was doing, especially when you looked earlier on in the game.

  • They were trying to play coverage, and Marcus may have to make a great saving play out of phase on Nelson A galore when he's deep to play before you get beaten zone and So it's like, Okay, let's go get him.

  • Let's get it out of here.

  • And if the linebacker dog rushes like he's supposed to do and cover zero blitz, he it's Derek Carr in the face.

  • I'm not saying it's a great call.

  • I'm not defending it.

  • What I'm saying is I'm not surprised Greg did it, Um, also not surprised that they finally fired somebody in New York.

  • I think the hypocrisy is crazy, but, hey, somebody had to go.

  • The coach called him out.

  • Adam Gauge didn't back him.

  • The player said something about it, so he got let go.

  • But I don't necessarily just think it's that awful off a call when it's compared to the rest of the stuff that's going on in New York.
