By my count, we need at least two and probably three new LBs, a new safety, two new OL, at least one new WR, a new RB, and a new TE. Oh, and there's not a single starting-caliber QB on the roster. Mike Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan cannot be allowed to acquire these players, at least not on their own.

Possible scenarios:

1. Tannenbaum is fired (or demoted) and an experienced personnel executive is hired to serve in a football czar-type role. This sounds great, but why would someone like Bill Polian want to work for someone like Woody Johnson?

2. Tannenbaum is fired (or demoted) and a promising young scout is hired as GM. This sounds great, but why would someone like Eric DeCosta want to work for someone like Woody Johnson?

3. Tannenbaum is fired (or demoted) and the Jets are forced to settle for a second-rate career scout. Phil Emery 2.0.

Oh, and of course:

4. Tannenbaum is retained. This is most likely, only because the universe enjoys nothing more than kicking Jets fans in the sack.

These choices, in order of likelihood, are #4 (remember: sack-kicking!), #3, #1 (though we'd certainly hire some dipsh*t like Mike Holmgren), #2. In other words, we're pretty well buggered.

It should be rather apparent, as this is the Jets we're talking about after all. We'll start off with a little more #4, followed up by what would appear to be a #2, but instead actually turns out to be someone who does the job like a steaming pile of #2.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

The two times that changes took place here were when Herm forced his way out and Tannenbaum staged his coup, and then when they sacked Mangini because Woody wanted someone to sell seats in sh*tBox Stadium.

IMO, if Woody is to make a change it's going to be because the stadium is empty down the stretch. That's it. Otherwise, you'll get the same sh*t next year and, if Rex goes .500, you'll get the same again in 2014. Woody doesn't know anyone in the league. He's not plugged in with the Good Ol Boys, so he doesn't have any idea who the next big GM is, or where he can find the next great coach. He's completely reliant on Tannenbaum to inform him on inner-league issues. Firing Tannenbaum puts Woody out on an island, and he'd have to go beg Goodell to intervene in a hiring search in much the same way he had to ask Tagliabue to help him find Herm.

In short, status quo next year. The Jets are dead; long live the Jets.

What ever you think about them as people, why did Belichick and Parcells run away despite Johnson looking to write them big checks for a long time?

BB ran away from Parcells, not Woody. He was hired as HC in NE before he was HC of the NYJ. Then Tuna stepped down as HC, which contractually made BB the HC after he'd already secured a deal with NE. But Tuna still stayed on as GM, still to be BB's boss right after he scuttled his HC job which paid millions more and miles away from Tuna's shadow.

See if Woody was serious about being in this business he definitely wouldve cultivated relationships with his peers instead of pissing on them. Woody's best relationship is with Jerry Jones I think anyway, which puts him in the flashy, not real football people camp. He cares more about promotion than product, he is an egotistical silver spooner on a mission to prove to everyone in his life that kept him away from the family business that he can in fact run one. Thats my inner Freud coming out sorry.

MORE embarrassing to an owner than empty seats is a fan base on national TV that [publicly voice their frustrations in a cohesive, responsible manner.

Empty seats on Thanksgiving night can be explained away. A rally to enact change can not.

Jerry Jones, the GM of the Dallas Cowboys? That Jerry Jones? Perhaps that explains the piss-poor draft and personnel decisions this team makes. Woody is just emulating his glory-hole buddy by being the de-facto GM of the Jets. It all starts at the top.

Jerry Jones was a football player and didn't make his personal fortune in his family's (life insurance) business. He isn't anything remotely like Woody Johnson in either regard.

Conversely, John Mara and Steve Tisch inherited the Giants from their daddies. They didn't exactly work their way up. Ditto Irsay with the Colts and probably a good number of others. Woody brings in sucky people because he doesn't know any better, not because he didn't earn this or that.

Is Bob Kraft a "real" football person, as you put it? Or did he just know enough to find them and hire them?

As football team owners, some guys quickly (or somewhat quickly) pick up what is right and who are the right people to surround themselves with. Others suck and are clueless and surround themselves with the same. Woody falls into the latter category.

Belichick left because he wanted to be his own man NOT Parcells' puppet, and NE offered him that.

Parcells left because he wanted to maintain his reputation as a football genius.

Their subsequent careers bear this out: Parcells has never won a playoff game as a HC without Bill Belichick as his DC, and he left Miami saddled with a crap coach and depleted talent after his stint as the Carp GM. Meanwhile, we all know what Belichick has done since he left the Jets.
