Aldon Smith yes, but when those other players were acquired he was in pro personnel not college. He brought in some excellent pro players Rogers, Whittner, Justin Smith, Ginn, etc, Be happy for what he did do.
some of you are happy and you don't even know why you should be happy.
Like we need you to tell us when we can/can't be happy. Go **** yourself, troll.
"Johnsonís man should be Tom Gamble, the 49ers director of player personnel. Gamble fits the Jets perfectly because his strength is in personnel and he has done virtually everything else in the game other than long snap and cook team meals.
Gamble, the son of former Eagles president Harry Gamble, has been in the NFL for 25 years and has coached (with the Jets in 1995-96), been a college and pro scout, done contract negotiations and has extensive experience with the draft and the salary cap.
There are available candidates with more experience, but there is not a more well-rounded, qualified candidate than Gamble, who is scheduled to interview with the Jets over the weekend.
With the 49ers, Gamble has had a hand in building every facet of their roster, which will send nine players to the Pro Bowl this month. Itís a roster that produced an 11-4-1 regular season, an NFC West title and the No. 1 playoff seed in the conference, one year removed from making the NFC Championship Game.
In part, that includes the drafting of defensive end Aldon Smith, who had 19 1/2 sacks this season, free safety Dashon Goldson and linebackers Patrick Willis and Navorro Bowman. All are going to the Pro Bowl.
It includes signing key free agents such as defensive end Justin Smith, the first cornerstone of this defense, and cornerback Donte Whitner ó also Pro Bowlers.
Gamble has been a part of a culture in San Francisco that builds the team through the draft and stockpiles picks ó the opposite philosophy the Jets have employed. He has been a part of building 11 playoff teams ó four with the Eagles, five with the Colts, and two with the 49ers.
Gamble worked with Buddy Ryan in Philadelphia and has known Rex Ryan for more than 20 years. So he and Rex, who have a mutual respect for each other, could become a strong team."
Woody...give him full powers and authority...and Jets will be a playoff calibre team for the long haul. Starting in either 2014, or no later then 2015.
I wonder if we get Tomsula to come here as the DC. He and Dunbar on the same staff would be great.
If I was Gamble and they were forcing me to keep Rex I would try to bring him and tell him that if Rex phucks up next season he gets the job.
Except that none of that makes sense.
You are suggesting that Gamble should come in with some kind of chip on his shoulder, and start laying down his authority with a coach who YOU assume is being forced on him, nevermind the 20 years of history Rex has with the man.
That is how you want things to start off with the Tom Gamble Jets?
