Herman Edwards

Herman Edwards’ leadership style is a unique combination of honesty, innovation, motivation and trust. He applies a wealth of knowledge gleaned from years of playing the game at the highest level, combined with having learned the intricacies of the game from some of the most astute people in the National Football League, such as Kansas City’s Dick Vermeil and Indianapolis’ Tony Dungy. His now famous mantra, “You Play to Win The Game,” was one of the most lasting memories of the 2002 NFL season and became the Jets’ rallying cry for their remarkable second half of the season comeback, turning a tumultuous 2-5 start into a stretch where the Jets captured seven of their last nine games and earned the division title.
