They're doing their due diligence, being patient, and they will pick who they believe is the best candidate. Where's the problem?
It's not like the candidates are going anywhere. There are only a couple of jobs still open and Reid isn't picking one of the guys we're interested in.
It's the same retarded logic as the fools who were getting all upset about the Jets not speaking right after their final game.
Jeff Capellini says he is hearing that Scott Cohen's chances of getting the general manager job are not good. Been talking to various people close to situation all day and the consensus is Cohen will not be promoted unless roof caves in. #Jets …
I would rather have Gaine than Angelo, let's just put it that way.
I think it is going to be a hit, like they did to Joe Pecci in Goodfellas for the Dwayne Robertson trade.
Yes the first GM's were hired a week ago. So they are getting started. We won't even have someone in place for another week at least with all these new interviews. It doesn;t even seem they know what they want. By the time we get someone in the office and working it is just about Feb. I am saying the longer we go with this the longer it hurts us.
Also, the teams with good GM's and long term staff have alot of this done already because it is an ongoing process. When the new guy comes in, they still have to figure out how they want everything to work and train the organization on how things will go. That is not an easy thing to do number one and number two, it is this kind of stuff that they will be spending alot of time on while the other teams will be spending their time on football related activities.
The only guy who it was reported received a 2nd interview was Caldwell and they may have done that for the sole reason that Jacksonville was moving quickly on hiring him. Jets probably passed which is the reason he took the JVille job.
Most normal organizations in any field or business review candidates and rank them BEFORE interviews. Then pick the top 3-5 to interview. Bring back 2-3 for second interviews and make an offer.
What is clouding the situation is that the Jets reached out to 9 or 10 candidates and only got 3 interviews (not counting Cohen).
Now we reached out to 6 additional candidates. Woody either doesn't know what he is looking for, or the three other interviews went south, or none of the three gave any indication that they wanted the job. All in all it looks bad.
The inner circle of NFL ownership and front offices is quite small. People talk to each other all the time. If you are respected in that circle (and not laughed at by the others in the circle) you get recommendations from your peers. You interview 4 or 5 guys and you make a decision in a timely fashion. Why? Because there is alot of work to be done and not that much time to do it.
It is now January 10. The senior bowl is about 2 weeks away. The East West Shrine Game is in 9 days. The Combine starts in 4 weeks. Free Agency begins in 2 months. How much longer before we hire a GM? What if he wants to change the front office/scouting departments (which i hope he does). What about the coaching staff? Will he have enough time? All the other teams already have a leg up on whoever we hire.
This is why the Jets approach so far has been so minor league
