    Hearing the idea of hiring John Idzik intrigues the Jets. Has business sense, and Seahawks have put him on the road to scout of late too.

    Media does not know crap, but please let this be true!

    Translation: connecting dots and/or hopping on someone else's report.

    I'd take Idzik, though. The Seahawks -- and Korn Ferry -- have built a strong FO in Seattle

    I would not hate Sundquist, but I will pass on him for either Idzik or Khan.

    You have to believe that Idzik is going to be K/F's final recommendation to the Jets. They are familiar with him from Seattle and he has the experience.

    And for good reason, he has experience in all aspects of the game. He has also been part of a winning program wherever he was worked.

    The problem there is Khan is not a personnel guy. Sundquist is.

    Granted, but Khan does have some input none the less. He would bring in some Steelers scouts with him I am sure.

    Been lurking through the GM search, just gotta say to those of you that do this threads each day with the twitter posts - thanks. It's good to have all of this stuff aggregated in one place, without having to have to use twitter myself.

    Keep it coming!

    Jim Popp is no longer in consideration for the #Jets GM job. #nyj

    That is a bummer, but something I believe we all expected.

    I agree with this position. Just because Tannenbaum came from a cap management background and didn't know how to leverage scouts, and whose opinions mattered on player select, it does not mean that will be the case for all GM candidates that come from a financial background.

    Khan, ideally would come with an understanding of the Steelers infrastructure, and the blueprint to re-create similar success. He'd almost certainly have a better working relationship with scouts, and they'd probably be people he appoints to their roles. I would hope.

    If it's true that the finalists are Khan, Cohen, and Idzik (and I take everything that's reported with a mountain of salt at this point), then I agree.

    Khan is strictly a cap guy. Cohen is strictly a scout.

    Idzik's a bit of both.

    It sounds like the final four are: Kahn, Idzik, Sundquist and Cohen.

    Idzik or Khan for me personally.

    From Cimini Blog

    To that, I quote former longtime GM Bill Polian, who told SI's Peter King: "Football teams need to be led by football men who know how coaches think, how players think. You can't learn that in business school or law school."
