[QUOTE=DBarrett=all<3;4751776]I consider myself a fan who follows the game pretty closely, but I'm always amazed at how you guys know about staff who work for other teams at a level lower than GM. Could someone comment on what is known about Gamble and what makes him an attractive candidate?[/QUOTE]
Look at the 49ers and what they've done over the last couple of years. That's why.
As for Gamble, not only does he have a past history with the Jets, he also was a scout for the Ravens in 1997. Even though it was two years before Rex went to the Ravens, they still have a common link with Ozzie Newsome and company.
The 49ers have playmakers at seemingly every position. I would love this hire. Also he has the "name" to over-rule Rex's ego at times when he thinks he can make a player out of any athlete. Make it happen Tangenious!
