I really don't want anything to do with Angelo. We already have Cohen on staff and he's not going anywhere unless the new GM fires him. So if this Post report is true, why don't we just hire Khan as GM and keep Cohen as his assistant?
We do know this, Tanny had zero background in personnel. No one argues that. So three people were responsible for giving him input, Cohen, Rex Ryan, and Bradway (this assumes that Bradway speaks for he scouting department).
Woody knows who was behind the decision making process. Whose idea was it to bring in Tebow as your back up rather than go after Wilson? Whose idea was it to sign Holmes, Harris, and Sanchez to their latest contracts - all the while playing hardball with Revis?
Lets say it was all Rex. What I am fearful of is that if Cohen was not the lead guy influencing Tanny or in other words deferring to Rex, why would that change just because he has a new title?
Rex has already had too much influence on our roster. Look at Coughlin. Multi SBs and he isn't running the show.
It's not like debating a conspiracy theorist - because there is a body of evidence from which to draw a conclusion, something you seem incapable of realizing and acknowledging. Woody is the owner. He makes the decisions! Conspiracy theory! The fact that you have to cry CT indicates you not only have no basis for your argument but are deluding yourself and in denial, refusing to see facts.
in my opinion the pick will be cohen.the jets will see how he works out as the g.m. this year.if not the jets will wait untill next season to make major changes.
Woody is not going to do that. He has invested too much time and talked to too many people not to make this decision long term. If Its Cohen, he is going to get paid and extended. Woody is just not going to turn around and do this all again next year.
The Chicago Bears Screw Up First Round Draft Pick Trade with the Baltimore Ravens
The Chicago Bears GM Jerry Angelo took full responsibility for the botched trade with the Baltimore Ravens that occurred during the first round of the NFL draft. However, the Bears didn't end up compensating the Ravens' as Commissioner Roger Goodell suggested.
Chicago who owned the 29th pick of the first round and Baltimore who were three spots ahead of the Bears were in trade discussions during Baltimore's allotted time. Chicago, who ended up selecting offensive tackle Gabe Carimi, had a deal in place with Baltimore to move up to take Carimi. The details of the deal were that the Bears would swap first round picks with the Ravens and give up a fourth rounder this year. Baltimore's General Manager Ozzie Newsome phone the trade into the NFL Office, as required, with around 2:30 left in their allotted time.
The problem was Chicago didn't make the call because Angelo delegated the responsibility to two Bears staffers who thought the other made the call. Baltimore got confirmation about the trade so after the Ravens allotted time ran out, once the allotted time runs out the team temporarily forfeits that picks, the Kansas City Chiefs handed their pick to Goodell and selected Wide Receiver Jonathan Baldwin. Baltimore then composed themselves and took cornerback Jimmy Smith with the 27th pick.
Khan or Gamble
The NYPost, is an even bigger tabloid rag than the NYDailyNews....... but people decide that it's the "gospel" when it fits their "sky is falling" mantra. There haven't been a bunch of "leaks" to the press, lately--- which is telling, in and of itself. Therefore, in the absence of actual facts, the media are speculating, on a daily basis, as to what is going on with the Jets.
In my business, I've had the opportunity to interview and hire numerous people. During the interview process, I didn't routinely talk about the candidates with any other employees..... let alone, outsiders.
I don't know what the source is, for comments, such as "the Jets can't give the GM job away"....... but, I'm more inclined to believe that it's an agent for a candidate that is no longer being considered, than an actual league-wide consensus. Any agent is going to protect their client--- if a guy isn't being considered by such a "desperate" team, as the Jets are perceived, then he could be considered a bad candidate....... unless the story is spun.

The 'joke' sounds mocking.
http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/jet...of-tannys-past2. Another quarterback? If you think the Jets' QB depth chart is crowded now, imagine if Terry Bradway got his way during the last draft. Bradway is the senior personnel executive and he lobbied hard for QB Russell Wilson, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine revealed. "(He) was the champion of Russell Wilson," Pettine said. "The joke was that they were calling him 'Russell Bradway.' He just loved him so much." Wilson was picked by the Seahawks in the third round (75th overall). The Jets selected LB Demario Davis two picks later. It would've been real interesting if the Seahawks had passed on Wilson and he was there for the Jets.
What you call evidence, I call creative speculation based on partial circumstantial items and a mess of lolmedia gossip, designed to fit a prejudice against the owner, and willfully ignoring that the Owner employs not one, but several people who are professionally responsible for making those player decisions.It's not like debating a conspiracy theorist - because there is a body of evidence from which to draw a conclusion, something you seem incapable of realizing and acknowledging.
In point of fact, you don't have a single point of evidence. You have a theory, nothing more, nothing less.
Now, if we her a few weeks, months or years down the road from Tanny or Rex that "Woody forced Tebow on us", then you'd have at least some evidence/testimony. Or, say, you find a memo signed by Woody in the trash one day saying "You MUST sign Tebow". otherwise, sorry my friend, what you have isn't evidence at all.
