Some people get off on seeing their threads accumulate posts. No one here had probably ever heard the mans name before and we are supposed to trust the number 1 most Jets haters on this? Just because you say its so?
His resume speaks for itself, and thats the only answer he should (IMO) give the NY Media Jackels.
All teams choose players by committee SAR. You may not like it, you may try and deny it, but every team takes input from their Coach and Coachign staff as to whom to aquire. Every single one, even those with the perceived "strongest" GM's.Question: "It appears that for the past four years the Jets had a 'committe' approach to picking players with the HC heavily involved and possibly having final say. Who will have final say on all personnel matters now?"
The real question is not "who picks the players" but "who has final say in times of a disagreement". And that should be the GM.
And I'm willing to be it is, based on already made statements by the Owner, who outranks both GM and Coach. "The GM picks the players, the Coach picks the coaching staff". Seems clear cut and already answered to me, all thats left is for folks to call woody a liar over it.
In 06 Mangini/MT picked Dbrick #4 over veron davis #6.. smart to pick a lineman but to pass up a TE like Davis and some other very good players, not a great pick at #4 overall..
2 years later in 08 Was a terrible draft by MT/mangini.. 1st round 1 of the biggest busts ever in Golston #6 overall..Joe Flaco and much better talent behind him.. Then they once again traded up end of the 1st to pick keller. Keller is not a bad pick but hes small for a TE, basically a big slot WR who cant block and isnt a huge target a TE should be.. Had we taken Vernon Davis over Dbrick, obviously wouldnt have taken Keller..Prob take a RB. And The talent of Rbs taken in 2nd round of 08 was amazing. (yes I just looked this up) ray rice, Desean Jackson, Matt Forte..all were taken right after the 2nd round pick Jets traded away... If we had 1 of those guys... I know we had Tjones but he wasnt going to be long term at his age.. Wouldnt have hurt having 1 of those guys ease their way in.. I know im playing revisionist but id rather have
Ray rice or Forte
But about Dbrick.. I didnt like the pick then.. #4 overall just seems to low to pick a lineman unless he is going to be an allpro force every year.. Dbrick is solid your right, but not exactly all pro. Know hes made 1 or 2... With 2 picks at #6 and #4 Jets failed to daft that impact player that are always available at that draft position..
I stopped listening regularly after Chris left because his arrogance became apparent. But what annoyed me the most was his agenda against the WSS. It was so blatant! Why would he care that the Jets would get instant popularity playing in Manhattan? Because his beloved Giants would lose their hold on NYC? Please..
