Or you have a carefully considered succession plan in place which a well run McDonalds has let alone a Billion Dollar enterprise. In management it is called a SWOT analysis an it is ongoing and comprehensive.
The fact that the Jets conduct most of their business by the set of their pants whether it is Tebow, or Edwards. This organization reveals time and again that they have no strategic plan in place and fundamentally I see no thought in what type of team and organization they want to be that should dictate what type of GM they hire.
This is their primary problem IMO.
