Tannenbaum is such a great drafter that he cut more than half of his draft picks from this year. He's such a good drafter that the offensive side of the ball is literally devoid of talent.
Keep making excuses for the guy, keep wearing the green colored glasses. Everyone else sees him for what he is.
You do realize every GM - and I mean every one - hits on some picks. Look at the absolute dearth of talent on the roster... at the 3 and 4 player drafts (while the Pats were picking 11 or 12 guys)... at the pass rush which has been dormant since Tanny took over 7 offseasons ago... at the nothingness that is our WR and RB corps... at the pathetic state of the OL after Mangold and Brick... did I mention QB?
Please, this fan base has overrated Tannenbaum since day 1. Thank goodness it appears an injustice will finally be addressed.
So you want to waste another year just for the sake of continuity? That makes sense.
When you recognize utter mediocrity, you fix it. You don't wait and hope it will get better. Unfortunately Woody is 4 years too late with Tannenbaum, but again... better late than never.
Proof positive the media is full of crap and adds their own agenda driven crap into their work, and in this case, riding out the overplayed wave that seems to be a media favorite in mocking the Jets."That's totally ridiculous," one exec said. "Only the Jets."
There is no ****ing way an actual football exec said this. It could have been an ex-exec like Mike Lombardi, who works for the NFL network, and has a well known hatred for the Jets and would spin anything to jump on a headline.
LOL @ the ****ing media, again, and AGAIN seeing fans buy into this crap.
I follow the draft as closely as anyone... It's dumb but it's my hobby. I'm not saying Tannenbaum is great by any means, but he's done a good job compared to a lot of the NFL. I don't think a lot of you realize how poor some teams are at drafting.
I think Tannenbaum should lose his job, but that's not my main reason.
I want him entirely gone, if it means waiting one more year to clean house then continue with this refusal to make tough decisions, I would rather go one more year with Tanny as GM then 5 more with another poor GM and Tanny in "Capologist" role.
The idea of refusing to fire GM's is ridiculous...
Just throwing out the fact that I follow the draft closely so it's not like I'm talking out of my ass when I say that Tannenbaum hasn't been trash when it comes to drafting.
He should lose his job but the main reasons should be some of his contractual decisions and just about everything regarding Sanchez.
Seems like you're throwing a fit that I don't agree with your opinion. Better to make it easy and stop reading my posts. Or come up with some real discussion and comparisons as to why you disagree with my opinion.
Good to know we're not insane here on the inside - it really is a league wide stigma."Only the Jets"
If this is true, which judging from previous FO moves probably is, then it is the dumbest thing I have heard in a while. The Jets must clean house and Woddy must make the right call for a clean break otherwise nothing will really change.
