    Matt Hasselbeck hopes to return as Jake Locker's backup http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...gn=Twitter_atl

    With the talent the Chiefs have, they get Andy Reid, they will win that division for the next 5 years. Enjoy it while it lasts, Broncos.

    Hmm.. Maybe... Any GM going to Jacksonville knows that the move to Los Angeles (or somewhere else if SD moves to LA) will be hanging over him. Not to mention Jacksonville is in a very similar place as the Jets, but with more salary cap room and less talent on defense. Not to mention winning in NY has more cache than winning in Jacksonville.

    lol, this is good thinking, lets not hope for the best person for the job, lets get offended and do the old, if he didn't want us we don't want him nonsense.

    As I stated in my other post on here, the Jets have a couple of major minuses for a GM to consider vs other teams.

    In any case we could hire Richie Kotite as GM and half the forum would be anointing him and throwing rose petals at his feet without really looking into the hire. (Like sparano)

    The Chiefs have some nice players for sure but still no QB.

    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.

    As to your take on the Jets, you exaggerate to this extent. Rex has 2 yrs left on his deal so he's in lame duck mode in 2013. There's no way he is going to have "power in the make up of the team."

    Did Woody just extend Rex? No. That's telling.

    As to Sanchez, the new GM is not committed to him next year. There has not been a single report stating that the new GM is required to keep Sanchez. In fact, the Sanchez extension was one of the reasons Tanny got fired.

    The new GM is being hired to fix Tanny's mess, not to continue with it.

    True, but having the 1st pick may help with that. After all, Andy Reid got a 2nd AND a starter for Kolb.

    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.

    Bill Polian said he would only go to a team that was pretty much set not one that needed work.. In other words give me a paycheck that I don't have to work for..

    It will be telling as to who finally takes the GM job. If the top guys pass on it, then it would suggest that Woody really didnt give them the full control over the organization and the freedom to fire Rex if necessary.

    he's been there, done that. the jets need a younger, confident guy who isn't afraid to deal with guys like rex, isn't afraid to cut dead wood and isn't afraid to make changes.

    The home town bit is an attraction, I'll grant you that.


    As to your take on the Jets, you exaggerate to this extent. Rex has 2 yrs left on his deal so he's in lame duck mode in 2013. There's no way he is going to have "power in the make up of the team."

    So you say. He is a strong personality. Also a lame duck coach for 2013 is a good thing for an incoming GM rather than him having the authority to hire his own guy?


    Did Woody just extend Rex? No. That's telling.

    So why did he not fire him? Once again a lame duck coach or a coach that is being foisted on a new Gm is hardly a selling point.

    As to Sanchez, the new GM is not committed to him next year. There has not been a single report stating that the new GM is required to keep Sanchez. In fact, the Sanchez extension was one of the reasons Tanny got fired.

    His cap hit is what is making Sanchez committed, to go along with the miriade of holes on the team. Can the new G just dump sanchez and take the cap hit? sure but he is now behind the 8 ball cap wise, has a lame duck coach and may have to let players he'd like to keep (landry) walk

    The new GM is being hired to fix Tanny's mess, not to continue with it.

    Rex Ryan is as big of a culprit ion the mess as Tanny was....and he is still here.
    Taking all emotion away, just looking at teams and their make up and dynamic, the Jets are not a great situation to have to step into.

    A new GM might just eat Sanchez dead cap and move on with a bunch of young guys. I would.

    You would think if you just HAD a black HC the year prior that you would be exempt to that rule, but I guess that is not the case.

    So will the music chairs continue?

    If Heckert follows Reid to KC will Pioli be in play for the Jets? Not advocating for him at all but there is some familiarity with the organization and Johnson has been known to hunger for the "patriot way".

    Herm Edwards should go in the designated minority interview Biz.. To skate the rule just go to FlimFlamBBQman.com and set up a interview for the low price of 5 grand then go get your man..
