    Another poorly written article that makes no valid point.

    1) Tanny is not the problem

    2) The Jets aren't managing the Salary Cap properly

    Those two things can not both be possible....

    Really? That makes them more expert than anyone on this board could dream of, and more expert than almost anyone on the planet.

    Although he's not a "football guy" I'm guessing with his NFL contacts he'll be helping Woody with any searches

    Jets name new team president

    Apr 11, 2012

    By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com

    Neil Glat, who worked the last 15 years as an executive in the NFL league office, was hired Wednesday as the Jets' new team president, owner Woody Johnson announced.

    Previously, no one in the organization held the title of president, but the Jets lost two executive vice presidents in recent months, Matt Higgins and Thad Sheely. Glat's job likely will incorporate both roles, heading the business operation.

    The last team president was Jay Cross, who left after the 2007 season. Glat won't have a say in the football operation; GM Mike Tannenbaum still runs the show.

    Johnson said Glat "distinguished himself with his extensive NFL experience, business acumen, and leadership skills. We have accomplished a great deal during my 12 years as owner of the New York Jets, and I am confident that Neil will continue the growth of our business and elevation of our brand."

    Most recently, Glat, 44, served as the NFL's senior vice president of corporate development. His responsibilities included strategic initiatives, league and club business development and stadium development.

    "Neil Glat is a talented executive who has contributed to a wide range of business accomplishments during his NFL career,” commissioner Roger Goodell said. "I have worked closely with Neil on many projects and he will undoubtedly continue to make his mark on the league in this important and exciting new role with the Jets."

    With the NFL, Glat played a key role in stadium development included the advancement. He also an essential part of the successful expansion processes for the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans.

    "The Jets have established a unique and innovative brand and are leaders in many areas," said Glat, who will start in May. "I look forward to building on this momentum and working with everyone in the organization."
