    Jim Popp for GM!!

    http://en.montrealalouettes.com/page/jim-popp

    He's now my choice. Why? Because he's been successful running an organization (granted it's not the NFL, but the skills may translate), which can't be said about any of the other guys we're looking at.

    Maybe it's time to think outside the box? Why not at least interview the guy? He could bring Marc Trestman with him as OC or QB coach.

    Qualified or not, the media would have a field day if the Jets hired a guy from the CFL to be their GM. So would this site.

    And they would be just as correct as when the people on here familiar with the CFL were hollering for the Jets to get Cam Wake and were shot down and laughed at because he was a CFL scrub.

    I don't think either of those guys are on the Jets radar but both would be very good. I do agree that the optics would not be good for a franchise that likes the splash.

    Popp has kept the Alouettes competitive for roughly 15 years. With all the player turnover that goes on in the CFL, and their limited cap budget (4.4 million for 53 players)....I think he'd be an intriguing hire.

    Popp was also a runner-up in the Colts GM search last year.

    The Jets would be served well to bring him in for an interview.

    What the hell is a Jim Popp?

    No one is going to want this job. Scott Cohen will get it. Simple as that.

    @MMehtaNYDN: Jim Popp, GM of Montreal Alouettes in CFL, is believed to be on Jets GM radar as well, I'm told. He had been in mix for Panthers job #nyj

    @JasonLaCanfora: @MMehtaNYDN Popp has been contacted, yeah man. not sure of definite interview but thought of highly in that organization for good reason

    @MMehtaNYDN: So to recap expanded Jets GM search: Upcoming interviews for Jerry Angelo, Omar Khan, Brian Gaine, John Idzik. Jim Popp also on radar. #nyj

    @JasonLaCanfora: As @MMehtaNYDN notes, CFL GM Jim Popp likely to interview with Jets as well. Popp is very good. Runner up for Colts job last year...

    I can't remember who tweeted it, but read earlier tonight that Carolina was set on Gettleman, then Popp crushed his interview, and ultimately made their choice much more difficult than anticipated.

    Well. This site is going to ***** no matter who is hired.

    This guy has a great résumé!

    People want a personnel guy. He's a personnel guy. I'd take him.

    I heard that Popp wowed the Panthers and made it tough on them between him and Gentleman for the job. He was also a finalist for the Colts job last year.

    Maybe hes impressing teams but they are nervous about hiring a CFL guy?

    No doubt that's part of it. But it's a fair concern.

    Dimitroff was a CFL guy as well but he left a lot younger. They had to find a ton of under the radar talent to stay a contender for 20 years.

    There is a connection between Popp and the Jets

    Herb Zurkowsky ‏@HerbZurkowsky1
    So now reports are surfacing #Als GM Jim Popp could be candidate for NY Jets. Brock Sunderland, Jets' scout, used to work for Montreal.

    Good find. Brock's father, Marv was a long time scout for the Jets. Marv is now a scout with the Titans

    I'd put Popp as my #1 choice followed by Gaine and Ross.
