Who the F cares other than this jerk and his cronies? Really Cimini should've at least mentioned which Tower he is staying in and how he's doing at the blackjack table. As usual he is doesn't have all the information....
exactly. after 1 season, the new gm could get rid of both rex and sanchez, and he wouldn't be blamed for anything that happens with those guys. he could draft gino smith, glennon and build around him, or draft no qbs and build elsewhere. woody basically has to give the new gm this power, or else nobody else worth his shoes will want to come here. it's an intriguing opportunity, b/c of the market and the state of the franchise. anyone who can rebuild this organization will be regarded as one of the best guys in the nfl, but it's not for everyone.
+1 Add to that we have a decent defense, and a fan base that pretty much expects rebuilding pains. We need a decent QB, productive RB and pass rusher, and depth. If he can tone down the circus atmosphere, add two of the first three needs, and add depth, he'd be considered a savior of the organization regardless of record next year.
funniest part is that for years, the ny media has blasted rex for talking too much. now they're upset he's not talking at all. truth, their jobs are far less interesting - maybe even useless - when rex isn't talking. they're baiting him to get him so speak. "please rex, talk so we can all keep our jobs."
I am not sure why people think Rex had nothing to do with the Sparano hire, he said it was like "looking in the mirror" when talking about Sparano's offensive philosophy. The HC is responsible for his coordinators, but now people are saying Sparano was a Tanny hire?? Comical.
That should have been our first red flag since Rex doesn't have an offensive philosophy. Unless dysfunction is the new offensive trend.
If I'm Gamble and thinking rationally, there is no way I take the job in Jacksonville. I either go back home to NJ and rebuild the Jets or stay in San Fran.
The new GM is being hired to fix Tanny's mess, not to continue with it.
The new GM will look like a hero if he can fix the salary cap mess and have a good draft. The Redskins and Colts proved the team can improve drastically in 1 year -- I believe that's 10 times in 10 years that a team has gone from last to first place in the division in 1 year. We need a QB, stud OL, pass rusher, and RB. Plus we have a bargaining chip in Revis.
you are apparently not attuned to the ways of the ny tabloids. who gives a F about the truth. the more controversy and the more readership = $$$
I'm quoting Shuler here, but this is really just a devil's advocate position to the slew of fans going after Mehta.
Why the hate, exactly?
The way I see it, it's killing the messenger, or maybe more accurate, the inevitable by-product.
Mehta is essentially a creation of the running carnival that is Florham Park. If the Jets were run differently, if it were a professional, disciplined franchise, Mehta couldn't report what he writes. Their isn't ONE deepthroat. There are leaks everywhere. FP is the sports version of Washington.
Say what you will, Mehta seemingly is out-working the other slobs, getting all the big scoops. He's kicking everyone of his competitors asses. He has all the sources. What story has he completely made up? Do you really believe Rex (who has proven to be a liar) over Mehta in a he said she said?
Bottom line: Mehta is a creation of the mess, not the cause.
