I understand the GM search has been 2 weeks, but this is obviously a decision you don't want to screw up. Whoever gets hired already knows what he wants to do with the team/roster. And those decisions aren't due until after the Super Bowl.
But I'd like to have a GM in place before the Senior Bowl, especially if the GM is a a personnel guy (which I hope it is).
This search will wrap up very soon.
Exactly. The same loudmouths around here who yell about how Rex's two AFCCG appearances don't count because he went 6-10 this year seem to think that the same dynamic doesn't apply to a firm like Korn-Ferry and this search. If KF via Woody trots out some weak candidate that everyone in NFL front offices is chuckling about, does anyone think that's NOT going to hurt the firm's future prospects of running these kinds of searches? Will KF be able to say "The Jets search in 2013 doesn't count! We hired Seattle's GM in 09!!!!1111" ?
