Favre became a sexting predator
Hard Knocks created this mind set that each individual had a voice....a separate voice with an opinion, opinions that have ripped apart the locker room yearly. Everyone thought they were a TV star, especially the classless clown coach who has hurt the Jets brand more than any other.
As far as the GM search....Wrecks has positioned himself as the top dog and any GM that comes in must defer to Wrecks. This hierarchy plan is clearly unacceptable to the strongest candidates with their own ideas of how an organization should be run. Clearly, the candidates are questioning the judgement of the owner first and foremost.
I don't think anybody has turned down interviews b.c of Rex or the cap. That is unprofessional. However, some of these guys will take interviews even if they do not plan on taking the job.
I just have a very hard time believing that the cap situation would scare any of these guys off. Year 1 is always a honeymoon and our roster is so bad that they will likely get 2 seasons before anyone expects anything.
Most GMs want to build a team and like the challenge. But in order to do that they must have their guys in place. If they don't believe in a HC that is being forced on them then they won't take the job. Just like every single play of a player's career is on film and evaluated so is every move and job of a FO exec. If they think they are not going to succeed in a certain situation, they will not put themselves in that situation. For most of them, they will get only one shot at being a GM.
So now we're begging people to take the job? Nice
Wow!We are such a pathetic organization!If our idiot owner would have just canned both Tanny and Rex we would most likely have a competent GM in place right now!
Jets owner Woody Johnson is having a hard time finding a new General Manager. Per Jay Glazer of FOX, the team “can’t give the position away.”
Glazer says the Jets are calling back candidates who already have turned them down, asking them to reconsider. Meanwhile, guys they wanted who had other options (like Dave Caldwell and Tom Telesco) opted to go elsewhere.
Those are the facts. So when the media paints the picture that the Jets "can't give away the GM job".. They are spewing utter nonsense and garbage.
I understand the Jets are being thorough with their GM search, and interviewing as many candidates as they can certainly supports that mandate.
But letting Jerry Angelo in the building should result in someone punching Woody in the face.
To any GM candidates, coaches and fans who can't stand the 'circus': GFY - there are 31 other teams to root for.
I love how you guys think you know what the f*ck you're talking about when it comes to hiring a GM. You're all clueless about who is and isn't a good candidate. Stop pretending you know who and what is best for the Jets b/c you don't. Just like I don't. You don't work for the Jets and you never will. And that reason is simple, you don't know what the f*ck you're talking about. Stop listening to rumors and what other people who don't know sh*t either (Glazer, Schefter etc.) about the Jets and the GM search have to say. Twitter is the worst thing to ever happen to journalism. It's just a bunch of hacks making **** up or quoting sources that are distant relatives of somebody involved in the process. It's a joke.
