On the ganggreennation.com podcast, where Tony Pauline (the one who broke the story on trouble between Mac and Gase) is a guest, one can hear the following:Mac and Gase had problems almost before the ink was dry on Gase's contract.Tony Pauline heard about it at the beginning of FA. He was told by someone in the league whom he trusts that Mac would probably not survive the Anthony Barr situation.Tony said that almost from the beginning Adam Gase was saying that Mac had to go.The Jets courted Matt Paradis. Paradis was in NYC at the NFL HQ on the first day of FA. Both his agent and he expected to get a contract offer from the Jets and didn't. The agent was ready to drive to Florham Park and sign the contract. That created a major rift between Mac and Gase. Gase wanted Paradis.A week before the draft Mac, Gase and another individual from the Jets' FO (Heimerdinger?) went to dinner, aired differences and tried to resolve their issues and seemingly did, but it didn't last because of Gase's personality.Mac was being overpowering, overburdening.Tony Pauline heard before the Combine that the Jets were only going to look at 2nd tier FA RBs like Tevin Coleman because they didn't want to spend a lot of money on a RB and they thought that Coleman was a better fit for Gase's offense (outside, zone runner). Le'Veon Bell's agents told Pauline that even before the Sr. Bowl, the Jets were showing little interest in Bell.Pauline wonders if because of the Barr situation, Mac felt he had to go out and make a big splash.Pauline said that Gase really wanted TE Daniel Fells, and that when Mac didn't sign him, Gase complained to people outside the organization. He was frustrated that he didn't have the say over personnel that he wanted.Pauline said that there was a major rift between Mac and Gase, a power struggle, and it was a failure of leadership from Chris Johnson.Pauline thinks that Mac not signing a starting C and Edge Rusher in FA had a lot to do with the problems.Mac and Gase have totally opposite personalities. It's known around the league that Mac can't make a decision. He frets over the pros and cons.He doesn't think that there was any one event or decision that changed Chris Johnson's mind.He doesn't think Joe Douglas will be allowed to come to the Jets. They have blocked other teams from speaking to him before. He thinks they will offer him a promotion.Pauline thinks that Woody is better than Chris Johnson. I disagree with that.
