    Second, it makes no sense to say Rex isn't a concern, but the circus is. Rex and the circus are one and the same. Don't blame the media. They don't seem to bother any other team in NY as much. Same thing happened up in Boston with the Red Sox the past 2 years. If you lose control of your clubhouse and your own mouth, you're going to pay the price. By the way, that same Boston media has restricted access to the Patriots. No circus there, is there?
    Is the 2014 cap that good considering where our leverage is with revis?

    That situation is an ENORMOUS problem for an incoming GM

    Jets opt to do Hard Knocks, they are a circus despite going to AFCCG that year, a number of other teams do it and no one cares.

    I will grant SOJF's that bringing in Tebow was a "circus" like move, but that is just about the only thing that can be objectively considered a "circus" like move. Its just the crappy media guys like Manish that make the Jets appear to be a circus.

    I think most GMs are smarter than worrying about that though and they are probably scared off by the salary cap situation and NO QB. If we had the exact same roster and Cap situation but had the first pick with a guy like Luck or RG3 available GMs would be knocking our door down.
    One thing. The Favre media circus was a Favre thing. Not a Jets thing. The Farve media circus followed him to Kiln, MS and to Minnesota. I mean the offseason after he was cut by the Jets, ESPN set up camp in Kiln waiting for his decision on whether he was coming back as if they were waiting outside the Vatican for them to announce the new pope.

    One thing you can blame the Jets on is bringing in players who already have their own built in media circus like Favre and Tebow. Both had media circuses associated with them prior to the Jets.

    "Cap situation" is code for "Rex Ryan? F-ck that".

    Your a clown without one fact to back up anything you say. Your a one note poster, who can't think outside your fire Rex box. The facts are an experienced GM, who has worked in other organizations, will take the job, knowing that Ryans the coach.

    Common sense.

    Many of us have been worried about this since the beginning.
    Proof?

    Woody needs to promise no interference in bringing sideshow QB's etc to the Jets to generate headlines to any serious candidate. And yes, Tanny really left the Jets with a ****pile to sweep up.

    we all know you are anti-Rex, but when you force things that aren't there, you really do not look smart as you say. Cap means cap. These candidates interviewed knowing Rex was going to be around for next season. Not a difficult concept to understand.

    That's just not true. The Tebow circus wasn't Rex's fault. It's clear that was a Woody Johnson move.

    Agree Inept Woody needs to agree to keep his head out of everything. Disagree about the situation. Jets defense is already set up for success just need to get a couple LBs in the draft, we're $30 mil under the cap after cutting the fat (Tebow, Scott, Smith etc) and if you add minor mid-level fa's at RB and TE you'll see Sanchez play alot better next season.

    If this is true, it's embarrassing. But, what else is new.

    They should absolutely interview Jim Popp if they haven't.

    Solution: Do nothing.

    Let Revis earn $50 mil guaranteed from another team after playing stellar next season and getting us back in the playoffs. You can always get good corners in draft/FA and if we improve the pass rush you can win with decent Corners. See Giants.

    Let's please stop pretending that the Tebow nonsense was our only problem. This was a circus long before the idea of bringing Timmy here ever entered anyone's head. Rex's bravado, his guarantees, his bickering with opposing players, insults to guys like Norv, his lost locker room, his issues with his assistant coaches, his costumes, YouTube videos, etc. all have nothing to do with Woody or the media.

    These are all created by Rex. Tell me what other coach in the league generates this much noise around his team. Please.

    SAR is the Mike FATCESSA of JI.

    He constantly puts up posts where he's basically fishing for a reaction out of everyone and succeeding.

    I heard they haven't and because they're the Jets, they won't.


    Why? 'Cause it makes sense and that's not the Jets MO.

    DD,were going to hire a GM this week, you might not like who we get. But that GM, is somebody who has worked with other teams and knows who the coach is. When i read some of these posts, you get the impression everybody has turned down a chance to interview for the job, which, of course is not true.
