Just because Tannenbum screwed the pooch, doesn't mean those under him are equally as bad. For all we know, he may have made great recommendations that were all ignored. This is where Korn/Ferry needs to earn their money. Maybe we have a real diamond that we're all ignoring. Hell, Woody didn't need Korn/Ferry to come up with Gamble, Caldwell or Ross. All he had to do was see who everyone else was interviewing. Not saying Cohen is anything special, but who knows? Doesn't hurt to talk to the guy. I just hope that Woody has someone competent sitting in on the interviews with him.
EDIT: "The GM search commenced immediately. The Jets requested and received permission to with speak with at least two candidates -- Tom Gamble, the San Francisco 49ers' director of player personnel, and Marc Ross, the New York Giants' director of college scouting."

Think about it. Rex's contract is up, you can move Sanchez out as well as other players to leave a ton of cap space. If they suck next year (which a lot of people think they will) they will have another high draft pick to get talent.
See the media and a lot of people aren't looking ahead to after next year. They are only looking at the situation next year.
y is terry bradway still here?
If the upper tier candidates don't fancy the situation here (with Rex being retained), I believe hiring Cohen could be a real possibility.
To which, we'd all should light ourselves on fire if that happens.
They've gotten permission to interview everyone on their list so far.
http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/201...er_person.htmlPer a Fox Sports report, the Jets have requested and received permission from the Falcons to interview director of player personnel Dave Caldwell for general manager.
The key here is that the GM needs to be able to decide Rex's fate. Even if he has to keep Rex for next season, he should have the power fire Rex if he feels he does not fit his vision for the Jets after watching him for a season.
