    Why are we still "scheduling" interviews?

    What is the delay here as far as actually sitting down with these GM candidates?

    Caldwell apparently has already interviewed once in Jacksonville and is scheduled for a second round.

    Gamble still hasnt sat down with our search firm and its already Thursday.

    Are we moving too slow here? If Heckert goes with Andy Reid, and Caldwell winds up in Jacksonville, we are putting a LOT of eggs in Tom Gambles basket.

    Just surprised we havent actually conducted an interview yet.

    Hopefully we're already in secret negotiations with Cowher.

    The boys were given the week off and are on vacation (at least Rex is).

    Per reports they start tomorrow.

    As you can see with the end of season presser Woody is alittle slow with how he does things.

    If anyone takes a job today without waiting till tomorrow/Saturday to meet with us, that means they weren't interested in our job to begin with.

    It would be foolish for 2 reasons.

    1. If you're really interested in our job, why take another without learning more about ours? Could be screwing yourself.
    2. You lose negotiation power and potentially leave money on the table by not being able to play the two companies (teams) against one another.


    Don't sweat it.

    The guy we want is still in contention and on the Left Coast. I'm not sure he can simply drop everything and fly cross country when there is still business at hand. At least, not immediately. Plus, if we heard reports of Woody and Co. going on a roadshow, traversing the country looking for a GM, he'd be a laughing stock here.
