now the one saving grace could be that Jax has a suspect owner by the sounds of it but otherwise, other than money why would you go to the jets?
If I'm Gamble and thinking rationally, there is no way I take the job in Jacksonville. I either go back home to NJ and rebuild the Jets or stay in San Fran.
As to your take on the Jets, you exaggerate to this extent. Rex has 2 yrs left on his deal so he's in lame duck mode in 2013. There's no way he is going to have "power in the make up of the team."
Did Woody just extend Rex? No. That's telling.
As to Sanchez, the new GM is not committed to him next year. There has not been a single report stating that the new GM is required to keep Sanchez. In fact, the Sanchez extension was one of the reasons Tanny got fired.
The new GM is being hired to fix Tanny's mess, not to continue with it.
