Woody got lucky his first 2 years, and those were his most imp't years as that is when he needed to sell his PSL's.
In many respects this is unfair to Mike T. With Mangini his draft picks (with a glaring exception) trades, and free agent signings were first rate.
One has to wonder how much of the change in Tannenbaum was self motivated or came from the top. If it came from the top he deserves to stay, get rid of Rex, and build the way he knows how.
Absolutely. Look at the trajectory of GB vs NYJ post Favre.
Additionally and interestingly, Forbes magazine had the NYJ as a top 5 organization in drafting from 2005 to 2008.
