Thread: NYJ assistant GM Scott Cohen gaining support

    But I'm making foolish assumptions. Laughable.
    We now know the only true puppet master is Rex. That guy has masterminded a nearly flawless plan to get everyone fired for the team's collapse except for him.

    But that doesn't make sense. He has a history with Rex. He knew the deal coming into here for an interview. Why would cancel his interview with Jacksonville.

    I don't understand why it wouldn't have went well then. Maybe his personality clashed with Woody? Guy helped build a strong roster in SF, I'm sure he would have outlined a similar type of plan to Woody. What type of plan is Cohen outlining? Being Tanny's yes-man while we traded for Tebow?

    That was hours ago.

    And by the way. People here say Rex is a buffoon. Does he have the brain capacity to be a puppet master at this level?

    Did it ever occur to you that maybe after interviewing with Woody and hearing how Woody felt about Rex, that he said there is no way he wants to be a part of that kind of situation?

    It's amazing really.

    He has been here four years. His DC wants out. He has fired 2 OCs. He got his GM fired. And the new GM has to be on board with him being in place for the foreseeable future.

    We should all play office politics as well as Rex Ryan.

    But that's the thing. We don't know of the relationship between Cohen and Tanny. If the two are similar thinkers, then there was no point in firing Tanny.

    Still doesn't make sense. He has sources of his own. He should have known the deal coming in here.

    If you can win over Woody, you've got it made in the shade.

    if you don't do that you'll get the inevitable..

    "The Jets didn't even test the market to see what was out there" non-sense..

    This reminds me of when politicians due a nationwide search for the most talented people and hir people that worked on their campaign.

    They got rid of Tannenbaum and want to move in a new directon. They said as much at the conference. Why would they hire a guy with similar tendencies to Tannenbaum to replace Tannenbaum? If you are going to hire a similar thinker who agreed with a lot of the decisions Tannenbaum has made to replace Tannenbaum, you may as well have never fired Tannenbaum in the first place.

    And don't go with the "giving the impression" excuse. Fans and media see right through that.

    It's a lot easier to play when you have a fawning stooge like Woody for a boss.

    All of you doom and gloomers are ready to jump ship. Oh well.

    When the Colts were looking for a GM last year they interviewed big names like Ross, Caldwell etc.

    Instead, they went with Grigson, a virtual unknown and a guy who as director of player personnel with the Eagles presumably signed off on a huge contract for Mike Vick.

    Yet Grigson, conceding that he had a win/win no brainer choice with the #1 #1 last year, still managed to build a playoff caliber roster from the trash that remained on the Colts team at this time last year.

    Moral of the story is....you never really know what you're going to get.

    We could land Gamble who turns out to be a dud - or we could land Cohen - who turns out to be a star.

    Let's just get a GM in here and hope for the best.

    the thing is, there are other qualified guys out there! Not just Gamble and Caldwell! We do understand that, right? They just happen to the buzz names now.

    Here are a few more guys who the Jets could consider:

    Brian Gaine, asst GM Dolphins. Worked with Parcells and help build the Cowboys teams in the 2000s (you can't deny they weren't talented)

    Dennis HIckey, Bucs director of pro personnel. They might not have the record to show for it, but do you see how young and talented the Bucs are now? Remember how old they were just a few years ago? Hickey had a big hand in that.

    George Paton, asst GM Vikings. Was a leading candidate for the Rams GM job last season so the Vikes gave him a promotion to asst GM.

    None of these guys are "sexy" names, but they have good track records if the Jets are looking for a fresh face.

    You are really struggling with this aren't you? IF they hire Cohen it woudnt be because he was their first or second choice, it would be because the other candidates turned them down and took other jobs. Cohen is their safety net. Its like when you were applying to colleges, you have your "reach" schools and then you had your safety net schools. Cohen is Montclair State College, cheap, easy to get into and local.

    The thing is that they need to get one in here NOW. The longer this goes, the more grumbly the fans become and the more suspicious they become.

    Not a good metaphor to use when speaking to a graduate (Undergrad and Masters) from Montclair State UNIVERSITY.

    And that was my first choice of school for their Broadcasting Department.
