It was reported late Friday that the New York Jets were targeting former NFL QB legend Peyton Manning to fill in their GM role. Let’s note that Peyton Manning has never worked in any capacity of a front office. So this might be the most Jets idea of all time.

Adam Gase and Peyton Manning know each other from their time in Denver from 2012-2014 where Gase was the offensive coordinator during Manning’s historic MVP season in 2013. Either way, having a GM who is a first time front office executive isn’t probably the best idea. This is just another moment where the New York Jets are acting like The New York Jets.
