Report: Jets Offensive Coordinator Candidates Include Ex-Texans Assistant, Saints WR Coach

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Two more names have emerged in the Jets’ search for an offensive coordinator.

According to ESPN, the Jets have expressed interest in former Houston Texans offensive coordinator George Godsey and New Orleans Saints wide receivers coach John Morton.

The Jets could interview Godsey, 38, this week at the Senior Bowl, ESPN reported. The Texans and Godsey mutually parted ways after the team’s playoff loss at New England earlier this month. In his two seasons as Houston’s offensive coordinator, Godsey’s units ranked 19th and 29th in the NFL. He previously served as Houston’s quarterbacks coach and the Patriots’ tight ends coach.

Morton has spent the past two years with the Saints. This past season, New Orleans had two wide receivers (Brandin Cooks and rookie Michael Thomas) who had more than 1,100 yards.

Morton, 47, previously spent three seasons as the 49ers’ wide receivers coach, and he was the offensive coordinator at Southern California from 2009-11.

Gang Green is looking for a new playcaller after Chan Gailey announced his retirement following two seasons with the team. Hiring Gailey’s replacement is an important decision for head coach Todd Bowles, who could find himself out of a job if the Jets struggle again next season.

New York (5-11) had the league’s 26th-ranked offense in 2016 and enters the offseason with many questions, the biggest being who will start at quarterback.

The Jets already have interviewed Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville for the position. They also had sought permission to interview Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo for the job, but their request was denied.

Ryan Reynolds Responds To Deadpool’s TOTAL Oscar Shutout!

We really thought he had a shot.

Ryan Reynolds blew Hollywood away with his self-referential superhero flick Deadpool, not only wildly exceeding box office expectations but garnering critical praise in the process.

And after a slew of Golden Globes nominations and even Writers and Producers Guild honors, we thought the Merc with the Mouth might actually become the first superhero movie ever to score a nod from the Oscars for Best Picture or Best Adapted Screenplay.

But this dark horse is getting sent to the dark glue factory, as today’s nominations came out with no Deadpool in sight — not even for technical awards.

But RyRey is keeping his chin up, and also his nimble fingers ready. He tweeted after the announcement:

How classy!

See, Donald Trump? That’s what’s called grace. It’s what people with dignity do when they lose out on something.

Did we just tell the President to take tips from the star of National Lampoon’s Van Wilder? Yes. Yes, we did.

5 things I’d fix with the Surface Studio

Last week I gave my review of the Surface Studio. There’s still more to the story as I now have the high-end version with the NVIDIA GTX 980m GPU in the office. That version doubles the video memory from 2 to 4GB and gives a nice boost to graphics.

We’ll have a showdown in gaming and benchmarks between the two as well as the SSD upgrade, but for now, I just want to share a few things that Microsoft should do for the Surface Studio 2.

Don’t Call It a Comeback: 6 Bag Trends From the Past That Will Be Big in 2017

The dawn of a new year is always a good time to assess the state of things and look at what’s likely to transpire in the year ahead, and as I’ve been doing that with the accessories market over the past few weeks, two related patterns have emerged: there’s going to be a lot of new trend emerging this year, but almost none of them are new new. If there’s something from the recent handbag past that you’re wishing would resurface, the odds are good that 2017 is your year.

Fashion spent most of the last year and a half plumbing the 70s for boho inspiration, but 2017’s bag trends focus on the more recent past: the 90s and 2000s. Most of the resurgent trends fall into half a dozen categories, and if you’d like to get a peek at what the year in handbags will probably look like, check out our predictions below.
