Jets find someone willing to take GM job

http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...anager-sources

Quote:
Coming off a season of disappointment and dysfunction, the New York Jets started the rebuilding process by hiring Seattle Seahawks executive John Idzik as their new general manager....

The Jets set out to hire a GM with roots in scouting and personnel, but they opted for a longtime executive whose background is salary-cap management and contract negotiations. They surely will be criticized because it's an extension of the Mike Tannenbaum model, and he was fired at the end of the season.
Quote:
They expanded the search after meeting with the four candidates on their "A" list. They targeted former Atlanta Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell, whom they reportedly were prepared to offer a $1 million housing allowance, but he spurned the Jets in favor of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Caldwell, Idzik and Khan were the only candidates called back for second interviews, a source said.

Three candidates, reached by ESPNNewYork.com, described their interviews as unusual because no so-called football people were in the room. It was Hughes, Johnson and team president Neil Glat and Johnson's attorney, Ira Akselrad.

"It was strange, to say the least," said one candidate, speaking on the condition of anonymity. "Let's just say there wasn't a lot of X's and O's talk."
there but for the grace of god go the chiefs...

One of the biggest mistakes Tannenbaum made was keeping Holmes and dumping Edwards. Sanchez was getting better, only slightly, with Edwards and never liked throwing to Holmes. The wheels came off when Braylon left as evidenced by the severe regression that happened to our offense this season

I think Mark Brunell was the booger glue that held your team together.

I remember thinking there had to be something wrong with the dude for him to be sold for that cheap...

generally if something smells like a rabbit, hops like a rabbit and looks like a rabbit...it's usually a rabbit

I think he had a big part of it but not all of it as we didn't have the locker room meltdown this year that we had last year. Alot of problems that kept us out of the playoffs weren't there but the sheer lack of talent and originality caught up with us something fierce. Not much you can do with an owner who wants the back page, see Tebow, one of the most unimaginitive coordinators in the league in Sparano, no depth anywhere, as well as being pitifully slow at RB and Linebacker
