Exactly. Why is it that most people don't realize this? I guess I understand if people not from the NY area don't get it, but everyone else should have more of a clue about these bozos. They will take a non story and blow it up and hound the team when they are on vacation after the season is over and most fans question the coach, not the slime bucket that followed him and his wife. The same people that complain and cover the Jets are the one's that create the circus. Just listen to any of the players and you'll figure this out. The ny media is all a joke of people that think what they write is overly important and are mostly a traveling circus themselves.

Why would a GM want to come here, when there's a threat that reporters will follow him on vacation and snap pictures? Or try to dig into their personal lives to find something to create a story out of and further trump their "circus" story line.
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.
Who are you again and why do I care what you think?
I love how you guys think you know what the f*ck you're talking about when it comes to hiring a GM. You're all clueless about who is and isn't a good candidate. Stop pretending you know who and what is best for the Jets b/c you don't. Just like I don't. You don't work for the Jets and you never will. And that reason is simple, you don't know what the f*ck you're talking about. Stop listening to rumors and what other people who don't know sh*t either (Glazer, Schefter etc.) about the Jets and the GM search have to say. Twitter is the worst thing to ever happen to journalism. It's just a bunch of hacks making **** up or quoting sources that are distant relatives of somebody involved in the process. It's a joke.
I'm not going to pretend to know a damned thing about which GM candidate is better than another, but if a respected journalist says that even the Jets interview process is humiliating and dysfunctional, that's a different story.
We missed out on the A+ guys. We are stuck with C- guys. Now we are begging B guys to please reconsider.
No young GM candidate is going to say "I don't like the owner" or "The head coach is unacceptable to me" because they want to have a future in the NFL, there are only 32 jobs, and you don't piss off an owner or a head coach.
You'd say something benign like "tough cap situation" and say 'no thanks' like a gentleman, keep your reputation intact, send out a signal to other owners that you know how to act.
-being force fed Rex
-offense is a mess
-Woody is an awful owner
take your pick. Anybody who thinks otherwise isn't paying attention to reality.
You forgot a few:
-Rex Ryan is your defacto 'boss'.
-All your GM peers know you don't call the shots.
-Woody Johnson has the HC's back not yours.
-Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are in your division.
-After you're fired, your next potential employer questions your decision-making in taking such a stupid job in the first place.
Most of what we've seen suggests cap hell for one season and than a lot of clear sailing in 2014. Any GM who signs will sign for at least 3 years, so I call bull**** on the cap driving potential GMs away.
