    Tanny to be on NFLN Tonight

    Tanny will be on NFLN tonight, 2/14 @ 7PM.


    I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't a sort of audition to fill Lombardi's shoes.

    Yeah. We have been discussing it in another thread. I think he is looking for a TV job too.

    How you feeling?

    EDIT - Just checked your thread. Glad to hear everything went well. Best of luck with the recovery.

    He was on ProFootballTalk kinda in that role and he was HORRIBLE. He cant give truthful detailed answers, hes much too much of a politician. Evasive and vague and unforthcoming.

    With all these TV road shows Tanny is going on, has anyone asked him point blank why he gave Sanchez that ridiculous extension?

    Yes.

    His answer was that is he knew Mark was going to turn the ball over 26 times he wouldn't have done it. LOL.

    Yes, and he gave the worst possible answer - it doesn't seem like a good decision in hindsight.

    This guy is an egotistical hubris filled jackass. The only thing I can think of him being worse at than GM'ing, is talking about it on TV. He sounds like his mouth is full of marbles and he is out of breath and is a 33 record going at 78.

    Sounds like he would make a perfect analyst for ESPN

    Nothing Tannenbaum says seems to interest me. I would rather listen to Mangini. Tannenbaum will eventually land a office job for some team but I don't think we will see him on TV or as a GM again.

    That's kind of a weird statement: He turned the ball over 26 times last season, too.

    Yes. During SB week. He said hewas coming off a 32 TD season and it enabled them to get cost certainty at the QB position for 5 yrs.

    Spoken like a true bean counter.

    Cost certainty. Not talent certainty.

    i guess the 32 TDs part went unnoticed..or his 2010 season or playoff performances...Yes, it looks bad now..but at the time it wasn't a terrible decision..A BIG if..But if Mornhinweg can straighten Sanchez out it still might be a good contract...If he can't he's gone in '14...

    Bean counter just said on NFLN that if he was starting a franchise he would take Russell Wilson.

    Former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum said on @NFLNetwork that he'd take Russell Wilson over Andrew Luck, RG3 and Colin Kaepernick? I laughed. Hard


    Manish exposing himself as an idiot.

    @7BOOMERESIASON: @MMehtaNYDN now is a good time to DUMP on Mike T since you don't have to cover him anymore. I laughed hard when I saw this.
