Jets Coaching Candidates & Eli Manning’s Future w/Giants
As the Jets' head coaching search hits full swing, Mike McCarthy finally had his day with the New York front office.

McCarthy had nine winning seasons with the Packers and a Super Bowl victory in 2011. He also gets credit for helping to reinvent Brett Favre in a lot of ways as well as grooming eventual two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers.
