    I think the logical move for whoever comes in would be to keep Rex. I think Rex could still be (and, in some ways already is) a good coach. And even if he's not the guy to lead them for the long term, its still makes sense to have Rex lead the rebuilding process for a year and, if necessary start over fresh.

    But stuffing the current coach down the throat of a new GM could be off putting.
    I agree with all of this, but I would think that this is a given. It would be a horrible way to do business otherwise. That said, I do think Woody will want to go with a hire who would want to keep Rex at the same time.

    - You are going to be given a 4-5 year contract worth between 8-12 million
    dollars

    - After spending years travelling the back roads of the U.S. scouting
    colleges you are going to be able to create your own NFL team

    Remember these candidates probably started out as "gofers" in football
    offices and worked their way up the organizational ladder. The above
    factors make any GM job attractive no matter what people & media
    think
    I'm so glad we are looking at guys with solid scouting backgrounds. Forget contracts and the salary cap. Stockpile talent and everything else will take care of itself. For those that want Rex gone.. the only obvious problem with that is that our defense will suffer mightily in the short term. I just want the GM to make that decision.

    He did flatly deny the Jets job. Apparently he also flatly denied KC as well. Polian has flatly denied everyone because he's comfy where he is in the studio.

    There was nothing inaccurate, Polian denied interest in being the Jets GM.

    This guy gets it.

    Polian doesn't want to be a GM. Not just the Jets GM, but anyone's GM. He's gladly giving us a recommendation of Gamble, who he thinks highly of. End of story, nothing to see here.

    Plus he's 70, or older.

    It's not always a given especially with teams with strong willed owners. I think what everyone is saying is that they don't Rex to be an obstacle of getting the best GM possible whether that's Woody stubbornly only hiring one that wants to keep him or not giving the new GM full authority. A GM is the architect of your team and could be with us for a decade or more. I want Rex to get another year, but if losing him means we can get an A+ GM then I will accept it.

    I think Gamble is a candidate in SD and Jax also. But from what I have read, SD may go with Telesco from Indy's front office and then bring in Arians as HC to work with Chuck Pagano's brother who is still the DC in SD.

    As far as Jax, I've read that they are also really high on Caldwell from Atlanta who has a previous working relationship with Mularky, their current HC.

    So let's say Gamble would prefer to remain with SF to stay of the west coast, we then would turn to Ross.

    Ross has been mentioned as a candidate in Carolina and SD. The media in Carolina seems to think he is their third choice behind Beane and Gettleman.

    So even if Ross decides he doesn't work for the Jets and Caldwell actually goes to Jax, then Heckert would be are other option.

    IMO, I think we get Gamble.

    San Diego is better than the Jets and needs a GM. Their QB is better than the Jets also. They are one hit on Manning from being the AFCW champ. The Jets are not even close.
    Plus there he may be able to pick the coach.

    Losing Rex also means that we could miss out on some of the top names that are out there, or the most qualified coaching candidates that are out there.

    I would NOT be happy with any GM coming in, and replacing Rex with some young guy on the up who that new GM thinks is ready to make the jump to the NFL head coaching ranks.

    In this case, we all need to be careful what we wish for.

    Yeah because all the other orgs needing a GM are a pillar of success

    Can't make this stuff up folks.

    You pursue the area with the greatest chance of success - organization wise or personal wise.

    The Jets are a perennial failure.

    The point is that I trust a great GM to build the team in his vision more than I do Woody. Arbitrarily keeping Rex would be our owner making football decisions which I don't support. I'm not saying get rid of Rex. I'm saying let the GM decide. Otherwise you are handcuffing him for no reason. I'm 90% sure any new GM will give him one year at least anyway.

    As are some of their fans apparently... And that analogy had nothing to do with the subject at hand.. That's like saying should I drive to the subway store for a sandwich or get the one that's already in my fridge..

    a guy like parcells is confident to go in anywhere, make changes and win. he doesn't care which market, which team, he believes he can do it.

    the key is to find that alpha male gm who knows he can win in this market, and not hire someone who will wilt when things get tough.

    Based on reports, Gamble is being talked up big time by Polian. Say Gamble comes in this weekend and blows away Woody with his interview. If Gamble says he wants his own coach, you don't think Woody will allow him to fire Rex? If he really wants this guy as his GM, I think he will.
    YES.....THIS MAKES SENSE.

    I'm not so sure SD is a better situation. They have a weak fanbase, they don't sell out their games, they play in a crappy stadium, they're a half step from getting moved constantly and they are pretty much an afterthought in stature and prestige.

    Of course, if the dude likes the Left Coast and his first preference is not to come back to the NE, then obviously SD is more attractive. He's got choices, from what it seems, and lifestyle and family life are not insignificant considerations. But from an upside perspective, you can't beat that of having the opportunity to revive the Jets.

    if he can fix the jets, he's a genius, a savior and can write his ticket. if he can't, well, the team is so dysfunctional that it probably wasn't his fault anyway. no lose for this guy.
