Yesterday, the New York Jets fans were at a “2.” Today, they’ve been collectively turned up to a “10.”

Watson, 25, has been the NFL’s top story over the last several days. The disgruntled quarterback is unhappy with how his employer ignored him during the head coach and general manager hiring process. And now, many people within the league believe he’s played his last game with the Texans.

Recently, Watson’s business manager liked a Craig Carton tweet suggesting the Jets make something happen. Now, Watson himself decided to get in on the action.

The post in reference features the back page of the New York Post Monday, which previews Brian Costello’s recent angle that the Jets do whatever it takes to land the unhappy star quarterback.

According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Watson wanted Houston to interview now-Jets head coach Robert Saleh and Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. The Texans clearly lost out on Saleh, but suddenly, they’ll be interviewing Bieniemy, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Could Saleh’s presence, an abundance of draft capital and cap space be the perfect combination that lands Watson? The majority of New York Jets fans, who are now at that previously-mentioned “10,” certainly hope that’s the case once the new league year officially opens.

Will be interesting to see how the Bieniemy situation goes. If Watson is leaving, that makes job much less attractive to EB. If EB is offered the job, does Watson relent and forgive? Watson and EB are both in a tough spot now–hiring EB may not paper over all the issues Watson has with McNair. (I suspect it won’t.) Might be a bit of a deadlock, with Watson’s uncertain status the sticking point for any HC candidate. If Texans trade Watson, that means they are in a full-on rebuild possibly with tank mode activated. Changes the landscape for any potential HC hire.
