Thread: PFT: Jets GM Candidates will, indeed, have to keep Rex Ryan

    Cimini: Jets GM Candidates will, indeed, have to keep Rex Ryan

    There will apparently be time to add more tattoos, if Rex Ryan chooses.

    During a discussion of the Jets general manager candidates, Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork points out an important caveat in the interview process.

    He writes, while discussing in-demand 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble, that the “word on the street is that the Jets are telling potential candidates they won’t be considered unless they agree to keep Rex Ryan for a year.”

    makes sense to me...a year should give the GM enough time to do a recon of the current team including the coach and make their own decisions. the new GM will have a lease of at least 4-5 years to put a good team on the field...plenty of time to stick with a year of rex (or longer).

    PFT didn't do the report... Cimini did the report. PFT did exactly what you are doing and just bringing to light Cimini's report.

    Ah, my mistake. I'll correct it.

    Edit: Well, seems as though I can't actually edit the title. Meh.

    This is a huge lynch pin to landing one of the upper tier candidates.

    And because of it, we'll probably end up hiring Scott Cohen.

    /lights self on fire

    There goes our chance at a heavy weight GM. All this move does is delay the rebuilding process. Rex HC next year and one of Tannys guys promoted to GM? Can't wait.

    Didn't someone say Rex has an input on GM choice.

    Not surprised. This is what the Chicago Bears did this year. So this is not uncommon.

    and the Bears new GM never wanted Lovie which is why he got fired after a solid year..Keeping Rex is moronic.

    Why? Actually in a year the Jets will be good cap wise.

    Wait but I thought all signs pointed toward him being fired... *sarcasm*

    I pretty sure anyone that knew anything about how the NFL works knows he was going to be retained. Or he would of been fired the day after the game .

    I don't mind if Rex stays, but it should be the new GM's call.

    This is a wise decision on Woody Johnson's part. You don't get rid of good HC's just because you want to give a new GM the courtesy of being able to surround himself with people he wants.

    That's putting the cart before the horse.

    Rex Ryan is the best HC this organization has ever had. Short of Weeb Ewbank's SB win, Rex Ryan is also the most accomplished HC in NYJ history.

    Firing Rex Ryan just to give some guy who isn't even in the organization the courtesy of hiring his own people is DUMB. Woody Johnson is showing honor with this move. It means he's always willing to go to bat for his good employees.

    If we can still land a great GM who agrees to keep him for a year then that's fine.. But if we have to choose, you have to take the GM. We are rebuilding and Rex is set up for failure next year anyway. It should be the GMs call IMO, not Woodys.

    Rex Ryan was one mediocre QB away from the playoffs this year.

    There are tons of job openings this year.

    Let Rex try to clean up his own mess. If he can't then let the next guy clean up a smaller mess as so many bad contracts will be off the books, and dead money will be back for the team.

    I don't think it will really interfere with bringing in a top GM. "Look, next year is a rebuilding year. Use Rex, if you approve of him, keep him. If you don't, fire him and bring in your own candidate." What's so awful about that?
