It happened, and Twitter will never be the same...

Jets’ GM Kevin Cheveldayoff and Head Coach Paul Maurice are going into their final contract years, both of which were extended in 2013 and 2014 respectively. The argument against the move is that the team hasn’t played up to its perceived ability, and missed the playoffs last year. Some were even questioning the coach’s deployment strategy. The details have not been announced as of yet, but as soon as they are, we’ll update this article.
