Not sure if this is in the Twittersphere, but Jimmy Raye is leaving the Chargers to be VP of football operations for the Colts.
Speaking of work done gone awry, what the heck happened to Lesly Visser?
By the way, this was in Cimini's Sunday notes http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/jet...-mass-rex-odus
"Johnson, Hughes and team president Neil Glat are conducting the GM interviews. Ryan hasn’t been present, I’m told, although he’s expected to participate once it gets close to the end game. From what I hear, Johnson has appeared humble in the interviews, basically asking each candidate, “How can you help us?” At least he recognizes there’s a problem; it’s the first step to recovery."
I found this very interesting:
I remember hearing nothing but great things about Gamble before he interviewed with the Jets. He was near the top of every list. Then it was reported he had an awful interview. I wonder if Glat had anything to do with it. I think a lot of people are in Woody's ear. I know Woody cares about business and he must value Glatt's opinion.Typically, a G.M. has to deal with only one person: The owner. In New York, the G.M. will have a straight line or at a minimum a dotted line to Glat. And Glat, we’re told, has been asking esoteric football questions during the G.M. interviews.
Aside from that, I try to entertain every theory. Positive or negative. Just so happens the negative ones are making more sense to me. Not saying I think all of them of true.
