Conspiracy theories, wtf? I've got nothing against Pep Hamilton if he's the guy. Maybe it was Bradway who suggested him. But it indicates that someone beyond Rex or Scott Cohen is suggesting candidates. Just think they are getting closer to a gm hire, is all I am saying. If I were the Jets, I'd make sure the GM was at least involved in the hiring. If Rex gets canned next year (likely) you either have an heir apparent on the offensive side of the ball, or at least you might be able to focus on the defense only so you're not cleaning house on offense 4 years in a row. No way the OC is named before the GM is in place. That would be sheer stupidity.
I'm sticking with my premise. That a new name has surfaced who is not a Rex guy is probably indicative of a transition taking place this weekend. That's not a conspiracy, it's common sense.
