Joe Douglas is the man all New York Jets fans currently trust.

Sure, the Jets’ horrendous record is just 20-46 in the 66 games Joe Douglas has presided over the franchise. And sure, No. 2 overall selection from the 2020 NFL draft, Zach Wilson, hasn’t quite worked out.

But don’t think for one second that this man hasn’t turned this ship around.

When Christopher Johnson tabbed Douglas as the next general manager of the franchise in 2019 (after the 2019 NFL draft), the mission was simple yet oh-so difficult: Find a way to rearrange everything in a way that an influx of young talent comes to Florham Park, NJ.

The last great roster the Jets had—prior to Douglas—was when the Eric Mangini-Mike Tannenbaum duo started doing work in 2006. Rex Ryan took that roster to back-to-back AFC championship games, but the talent, culture, and process rapidly dipped to a level that’s incredibly hard to overcome.

After a decade of horrid results, Douglas took on one of the toughest jobs in the NFL, and all involved with the New York Jets are thrilled he did so. Players such as Sauce Gardner, Garrett Wilson, Breece Hall, Alijah Vera-Tucker, and Aaron Rodgers lead a talented roster with legitimate Super Bowl 58 aspirations.

Joe Douglas signs Rodger Saffold to the practice squad

After losing another two offensive linemen to IR (Connor McGovern and Wes Schweitzer), New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas signed veteran lineman Rodger Saffold to the practice.

The kicker is that Saffold has been promised game-day elevation, which means Jets fans should expect the NFC champion (2018 Los Angeles Rams) to dress as soon as he’s ready for action.

Joe Douglas’ Jets knock off his former team

Remember, Joe Douglas’s work in Philadelphia with the Eagles—and subsequently their Super Bowl championship—is what put him on the NFL’s radar as one of the up-and-coming personnel minds in the game.

Now, in 2023, he can boast that his current team, the New York Jets, knocked off one of his former teams. The Jets’ mesmerizing 20-14 defeat of the Eagles in Week 6 has the Robert Saleh-led squad heading into the bye at 3-3 without Aaron Rodgers.

Joe Douglas’s GM record is nothing to write home about. With a terrible 20-46 record—entering the 2023 season—nothing about that win-loss mark screams success.

Yet, to truly evaluate Douglas’s efforts, a much closer look is required. And once that look happens, it’s astounding to realize just how things have turned around in a short few years.

Joe Douglas’s executive history began on a familiar program over two decades ago. When the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens became the first team to star on HBO’s Hard Knocks, then a lowly scout, Douglas was nicknamed “The Turk,” as he held the dreaded responsibility of informing players they were indeed cut.

Slowly but surely, Douglas learned the ropes from legend Ozzie Newsome, collected two Super Bowl rings in Baltimore, moved to a bigger role with the Chicago Bears for one season, and finally wound up as the Vice President of Player Personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2016.

In short order, Douglas collected his third Super Bowl ring, this time with the Eagles. Subsequently, he became a hot name as the next potential NFL general manager for a football program needing a major rehaul.
