    Absolutely. Why wouldn't you want someone associated with such a winning tradition?

    I am guessing it will be someone realitively unknown. If Rex stays and Tanny in another capacity they don't want the new GM to have that much power over them yet, and so they knowing the jets will find a yes man GM instead of a strong one like polian

    By John B on Dec 22

    Tom Gamble is a very experienced general manager candidate. He has experience doing pretty much everything. His bio on the 49ers website notes he has scouted college and professional football, negotiated contracts, and coached. He even has ties to the Kotite Era Jets. Despite that unfortunate resume blemish, Gamble is a desired general manager candidate.

    Since 2011, he has been Director of Player Personnel. He has been given some responsibility over the Draft, but Gamble's primary responsibility has been making sure the 49ers acquire the best available players from other teams.

    Gamble has a solid track record. The Niners have become one of the best teams in the NFL under his watch at least in part because of solid free agent additions such as Carlos Rogers, Donte Whitner, and Jonathan Goodwin. I happen to think the success is due much more to the incredible coaching of Jim Harbaugh and Harbaugh's staff., but Gamble has been part of a well-run organization.

    Gamble has a lot of experience in the NFL, which means he has a long list of quality people he knows and could bring in. He also has been involved in more aspects of running a team than many first time general managers do. I'm not really sure he'd be a homerun hire, but he is qualified to be a general manager. I wouldn't be thrilled if he was hired, but I wouldn't be upset either.

    Would you approve of Gamble becoming GM?
    This Tom Gamble guy is sounding more and more like a good choice!

    Russ Ball, Packers VP of football administration/player finance: Known as a good people person with an ability to manage, Ball has overseen the Packers cap since 2008 and has 23 years of NFL experience with five teams. He actually got his start as a strength coach. That diversity of experience -- and his association with a championship program -- makes him an intriguing candidate.

    Nick Caserio, Patriots director of player personnel: The 36-year-old has quickly become one of the most respected personnel guys on the circuit, with steely focus and drive, and worked extensively on the coaching side as well during the Patriots' championship years. As one GM said, "He gets it." That likely would be apparent in an interview setting, but it won't be easy to pry him from Bill Belichick's side.

    Eric DeCosta, Ravens director of player personnel: DeCosta has been a top-of-the-list GM candidate for a half-decade now, but it'll take an enormous opportunity for the 40-year-old to uproot. His wife is from Baltimore, and he's seen colleagues go elsewhere and find browner pastures. Plus, if such an opportunity doesn't come, he's content to wait and succeed Ozzie Newsome as Baltimore GM.

    Brian Gaine, Dolphins director of player personnel: Miami's instability notwithstanding, Gaine was part of constructing the Cowboys' talent-rich roster in the middle of the decade, sat next to Bill Parcells and Jeff Ireland in the draft room in Miami, and has worked both small-picture (advance scouting) and big-picture (team building) parts of an operation. Gaine is well-regarded in the scouting community.

    Tom Gamble, 49ers director of player personnel: This season in San Francisco has caused a lot of folks to re-evaluate how the 49ers were built. Scot McCloughan, having already been a GM, doesn't qualify for this list, but he might get another look as a GM (maybe in Oakland), and Gamble's is another name sure to come up, with his experience in pro and college scouting, contract negotiations and coaching.

    Dennis Hickey, Buccaneers director of player personnel: Promoted this year after serving for six years as the team's college scouting director, Hickey played a big part in turning Tampa Bay's roster over, from an aging group under Jon Gruden to its current state as the league's youngest team. Even though the Bucs are struggling now, there's still a strong base to build around.

    Will Lewis, Seahawks director of pro personnel: Lewis is another ex-Packer personnel man. He went with Ted Thompson to Seattle in 2000 and carries a pretty complete résumé. He's regarded as a solid evaluator and hard worker with leadership potential. He also brings experience as an NFL player and a coach. The Seahawks' continued improvement will only help his cause.


    Reggie McKenzie is no stranger to the draft war room and is one of the hottest prospective GMs in the NFL. (Evan Siegle/Associated Press)
    Reggie McKenzie, Packers director of football operations: He might be the most attractive candidate on the market, with the Packers' success and his 25 years of NFL experience. A former player, McKenzie started his run in personnel with the Packers back in 1994 and worked his way up. His ties to former Green Bay GM Ron Wolf have many believing he'll wind up getting the job in Oakland.

    Pat Moriarty, Ravens VP of football administration: Another "cap guy", but one with a very interesting background. Moriarty briefly played in the NFL and was in commercial banking for more than a decade after that. He joined the Belichick Browns in 1994 and has managed the financial structure of one of the NFL's most stable rosters over the past decade, while working closely with Newsome.

    Marc Ross, Giants director of college scouting: The 38-year-old has put together an impressive run of draft classes since joining the Giants in 2007, and was in the mix for the Seattle GM position when Pete Carroll was hired as coach in 2010. Ross was once the league's youngest college director, at 27 years old in Philly, and has a Princeton degree, which is sure to please the business side of an organization.

    Les Snead, Falcons director of player personnel: Snead has been with the Falcons for 14 years (and in the NFL for 17), so he's seen plenty -- from the team's Cinderella Super Bowl run in 1998 to the highs and lows with Michael Vick. And his most recent experience at GM Thomas Dimitroff's side only bolsters his reputation as a well-rounded candidate capable of leading at the highest level.

    Ruston Webster, Titans VP of player personnel: Quietly, Tennessee has built a solid roster, seems to have found the right mix at quarterback and has ridded itself of troubled players without a big talent dropoff. Seattle's interim GM before John Schneider was hired, Webster was part of that the past two years, and part of Tampa Bay's late-1990s/early-2000s rebuilding, and has a wealth of pro and college scouting experience.

    Doug Whaley, Bills assistant general manager: Whaley is considered the future in Buffalo, working now at the side of Buddy Nix. The roster has improved greatly of late, despite the team's recent swoon, due to Nix and Whaley's ability to turn over every rock to find talent. Just as important, Whaley was raised in the Steeler system, so he has strong knowledge of what a championship team looks like.
    If the Jets go near Caserio, Whaley, Gaine or Snead, I am done with this team. This is not rocket science. Look at Pitt, NYG, GB, Baltimore and yes, Seattle -- the hawks have done a terrific job in the draft the past few years.

    why a retread like Polian whose best days are past him. why not a young up-and-coming football mind who has enjoyed success in today's NFL environment -- not Polian from the late 80s Bills. Again, Polian was fired in Indy because without Manning the talent on the team was so insufficient. Why bring that to NY?

    McKenzie is Oakland's GM..since January '12..His good buddy from high school / college is Clinkscales.

    So how old is this list?

    Exclamation WOODY TALKING TO MIKE MACCAGNAN FOR GM

    =o GM that you want running your football team, like Houston’s Director of College Scouting Mike Maccagnan, who has been approached is going to have any interest in this type of power sharing arrangement. As our source has stated all season, Woody and Tannenbaum have a close working relationship and no GM who will want Tannnbaum looking over his shoulder on every move.

    Why can’t this organization just flat out fire anybody? Former GM Terry Bradway was just demoted into scouting after an awful tenure, where he could continue to hurt the Jets with his poor personnel decisions. Former Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton, who was awful at his job was only demoted to linebackers coach. Current quarterback coach Matt Cavanaugh stil hasn’t been fired for some ungodly reason. You need to fire ineffective people. Get them completely out of the building.

    The Jets are a disaster right now. Woody Johnson can’t be that blind not to see that. The solution is simple. Fire Mike Tannenbaum. Fire Terry Bradway. Fire Tony Sparano. Fire Matt Cavanaugh. Allow the newly hired GM to make the decision on Rex Ryan and go from there.

    Happy Holidays everybody!

    please stop already. A disaster is 1-15; 3-13. The jets are far from that. A few changes will right the ship real fast. Although, i agree with you that some decision makers need to be fired asap -- TS, MC, Bradway, Sutton, etc. If the new GM thinks Tanny should be fired, so be it. I am against firing Rex. It is not warranted imo.

    I don't think Rex should be fired, but he needs to be given an ultimatum that whoever comes in as the OC is allowed to play aggressive football and not be coerced into the ground & pound BS that Rex longs for. To me this is the biggest sin of this Jets regime , they're pandering to an idea that's counter productive to today's NFL rules.

    Rex would rather win with defense then to have a team that averages 30 pts /gm on offense. He needs to wake up and understand that it can work both ways. Early last year he was pissed at Shotty for allowing the O to throw too much, Hey Rex wake up that's how you win the NFL today. You can agrue that they don't have the talent on O to play that way , and its true when the coach & GM basically neglect that side of the team.

    I agree with you 100%. However, let me add that we need to bring in a true offensive-minded coach from a staff like NO or GB, not frauds like NE. History has enough examples of failures from the NE tree; that organization's perceived success is due to two factors -- Tammy and Spygate.

    agreed lets do it!

    did someone actually say tanny should get another year? lol... better question is who wants this job anyone? after woody has already turning off 90% of potentials by saying he would like to keep tanny as a cap guy, nobody thats good will want to work for woody Johnson.. He needs to sell.. but we need a offensive minded GM..Rex has done great with the D, getting the right players, drafting D guys is Rex. Mo Wilk is looking like a great pick b Rex now, so is Coples.. Look what happens when we draft offense.. terrible picks, outside of kerley.. Sure thats MT, but whoever else has had his ear on O drafting needs to go too.

    Hell no!

    Stop listening to the talking heads and do some research before you make a suggestion.


    Fantasy sports will do that to a person.
