    1) Tannenbaum was respected amongst GMs. He has no clue about Idzik.
    I asked about the Sanchez deal and he said.."Yes, big mistake, we all make a few".

    2) Rex is a good HC and would land another job in his opinion and should be given time to work through this.

    3) I asked about Rex's ability to evaluate talent. he said "All HC's think they can evaluate talent, they usually can't. rex is no different. He said Billicek and a small few can.

    4) The truth.. He said and I quote "Hated Sanchez in college and am not surprised by what has happened. In fact, i'm surprised it hasn't happened sooner.

    5) Without a decent QB..NO team can do well. Jets must fix this.

    6) Thinks the PATS cheating is not spoken about enough and that Tom Brady should not be a 1st ballot HOFer. Make him sit out like a steroid user at least one round.



    Trust me...this happened.
    How is Rich McKay doing these days?

    Btw, it's not hard to get the guy to talk. He loves listening to himself speak.

Playing golf with some random fired NFL exec who likes Rex and Tanny only serves to make Jets fans feel good.

    Frankly I don't really care, it's the offseason. NFL and CFB guys golf and BS all day. Who cares?
    The guy had a nice day with an interesting playing partner, and shared some tidbits from their conversation. You don't have to be such a jerk about it.

    This seems pretty clear by the fact that so many teams were falling all over themselves to hire him. Oh wait, that's right, he's out of the league.

    Actually, he does. He was born at the intersection of Dick and Wad.

    Cool story bro....







    My money is on Bill Polian. The hate/respect for Pats seems to fit.

    200% agree on Sanchez. Not sure about the respect for Tanny - but to miss on a #5 pick for a 'franchise' QB could certainly seal your fate...along with the the last couple of seasons.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I care. It was very interesting.

    great post, beancounter

    pay no attention to that worthless chowd troll, ASS0631

    like the rest of that loathsome, arrogant crowd of douches.... he has a addictive and unstoppable need to defend anything anybody ever says or said that doesn't say "My Shats are the bestest and so are Belicheat and Tammi"

    your GM dared to speak the truth and the Shat Defense Team needed to swing into action and insult you

    I loved what Tannenbaum did in 2006 especially with regards to the draft but he changed up his strategy for short term success and it bit us ultimately. I like what Idzik is doing so far considering where the franchise currently is, let's see how he handles the draft.

    Thanks for sharing. Interesting and some fair/objective points.

    Frankly I don't really care, it's the offseason. NFL and CFB guys golf and BS all day. It's CPA's intention to imply that some random dude who hates Belichick represents the thoughts of the NFL - he cheats, nobody likes him! Couldn't be further from the truth.
    LOL! The irony! The fact that this bothers you so much is just hilarious.

    This is actually vintage sg3 right here. Mid season form and we haven't even had the draft yet. I am impressed.
