    please don't snub us
    If he doesn't want us, then we can't be upset. Would you want someone to just come in here and not want to be here?

    The quote I copy/pasted is straight off the Seattle Seahawks website. Go see for yourself.

    The guy is Mike Tannenbaum II.

    He's a god damn operations manager, not a player personnel guy.

    Rex Ryan is The Devil.

    Wrong....

    In addition to all this coaching carousel talk, Seattle stands to lose a central figure in their front office, VP of Football Operations, John Idzik, as he interviews with the Jets for their vacant GM position for a 2nd time today. Idzik, from what I understand, has been an integral piece of Seattle's rebuild and the man behind the salary cap management over the past few years. The Seahawks have been tight with their money, but this frugality has led Seattle to become one of the best-managed franchises in the NFL over the past two or three years, a stark contrast to teams like the Raiders and Ravens, for instance, who face the possibility of dropping key players because of cap overages.

    According to the Seahawks' website, Idzik "oversees player negotiations, the team's compliance with the NFL salary cap, player personnel transactions, all football operations budgets, staff and team contracts, team travel and most aspects of the day-to-day football operations while also remaining active in player evaluations."

    Albert Breer also pointed out yesterday that the final sentence up there is true, Idzik has a role in scouting players, and the Seahawks have sent him on the road with this function of late. This dual ability - a business management acumen plus an ability to evaluate talent - is what makes him so valuable to the Seahawks and attractive to the Jets. I don't know if it's warranted, but I'm almost more worried about losing Idzik than I am about losing Bevell or Bradley.

    We'll be good again. It'll just take some time. We're a broken team right now.

    That Kentucky Jet?

    In my book, he gets no credit for anything around here.

    Prolly tough for him to leave a great, young Seattle team that he has had a major part in building. They are in position to be an elite team for the next 5 years. Could be a dynasty in the making.

    The only reason this guy would take this job is if he was very desperate. We'll find out soon.

    I'm sold. I pray he's the guy that wanted to draft Wilson. He looks like a high energy guy too:



    And his dad was a football lifer:

    Except that the Niners are in their way.

    Pats are nearing the end of their run, Niners have just begun theirs.

    Knock it off.

    I'll trust Korn and Ferry on this one.

    Their reputation is on the line and without that, they have nothing.

    It's exactly why I rarely post here anymore.
