    Disagree. First impressions are the one's that last. Many people have had great resume's but are poor interviewers and don't get the job. It's probably happened to everybody on this site in their lives. With a respected outfit like Korn/Ferry running this, you better bring your "A" game to the interview. As it should be. This is a huge hire, and you have to get it right.

    I won't be completely despondent as long as we pick somebody outside of the organization. But it would be quite disappointing to go from potentially getting someone from a team like like the Niners or Falcons to one from... the Dolphins.

    We have our own criteria for hiring candidates. We already are looking to replace our OC with Cam Cameron, a coach so poor that he was fired by a playoff team before the season was even over.

    Their criteria for hiring a GM will eventually lead them to him;

    Now its perfectly clear that the hiring of the firm was NOT just for show and that Cohen WASN'T the plan from the outset.

    The last thing we need is more Dolphin trash. Jesus we are getting desperate.

    I didn't realize that - this whole time I was thinking it was our Jimmy Raye and was really perplexed. Makes more sense now.

    The interview not going so well can be more than him simply stumbling over some words, etc. Woody has to work with his new GM, as does Glatt and everyone else in the FO. If they don't jive personally or philosophically, it would be doomed from the start.

    I don't know what the issue was as Gamble was highly recommended (and seemed to want to come here) but there was obviously something amiss on one side or the other.

    Its weird that we haven't heard more about Marc Ross though.

    Funny. But if he gets us a Calvin Johnson

    Correct. Plus Chuck Pagono's brother is the SD DC.

    @Gil_Brandt: Joeckel could go No. 1 to @kcchiefs, but there's no sure-fire first overall pick. I have 15 names I could see going at top spot.

    Nice work. I was asking to see if the poster knew anything about him since he was trashing him

    FWIW on own Tony Pauline knows Gaine and speaks highly of him.

    If you're talking about me, I said "could be" a dog and pony show.

    My opinion as to the real issue for the Jets: not allowing the GM to hire his own HC.

    I was really aiming at pcola, but whatever....

    I understand why that is an issue. But it all could be gone after a year.

    Agreed. Our GM search is beginning to resemble the Bears HC search.

    At this point it's obvious no one will come here to work for Rex. At this point make Rex the GM with ZERO authority to trade future picks or give out multi year contracts. Then fire his @$$ after next season and start this whole GD process over.

    Anything Woody does at this point makes it harder to win in 2014 and beyond.
