Prediction: New GM Tom Gamble will be on the podium for Tuesday presser
I'm trying to make sense out this whole Tuesday business. I think Tuesday we'll be introducing Tom Gamble as our New GM.
1 - Korn/Ferry must have been working on this for a while. I'm sure they reached out to candidates to gauge interest (not sure if this constitutes Tampering), but as soon as the Jets were given permission, there must have been heavy conversations. Search firms normally due extensive interviews with candidates before trying to place anyone. There must be significant interest before sending a candidate on an interview. I really believe that Gamble wants the job and if he hits the interview, the job is his. Why else would Woody pay them $200K?
2 - Having the new GM on the podium TOTALLY changes the nature of the presser. In essence, Woody and Rex would be off the hook. The whole presser is about going forward, not looking back. Sure they would still have to answer some questions, but the Focus will not be on them.
3 - This whole silence from the organization is too un-Jet like. Something is up.
4 - Rex in the Bahamas? Gotta be a reason he staying as far away as possible. Woody doesn't want him around to spoil anything.
5 - Gamble has been leaked as the likely candidate.
6 - Bill Polian pushing Gamble for the job - isn't it convenient that that leaked out??
I know trying to make sense out of anything Jet related is probably a waste of brain matter, but I'm calling it. Tom Gamble new JET GM - introduced on Tuesday!!
