please lord jesus...we cant let woody screw this up!

http://www.nypost.co...qYAdCJPShTv0lxM

Woody Johnson is about to enter his most important month as the owner of the Jets.

The team is at a crossroads, and deciding which direction to go is not easy. This is not like 2006, when it was clear the franchise needed a total overhaul and he replaced his general manager and head coach. Nor is it like 2001, the first time he had to hire a GM and coach after Bill Parcells and Al Groh bolted.

This time, the answers are not so clear.

It appears GM Mike Tannenbaum is on his way out. Reports have surfaced the team already is reaching out to potential replacements. But what about coach Rex Ryan? Does he escape blame for the last two years because of the roster’s deterioration? Is it time to tear it all down and rebuild?

One thing is clear: Johnson is going to need help with this process. He has leaned on Tannenbaum and Ryan on all football decisions for the last four years. Clearly, they cannot decide their own fates.

That is why Johnson should call on old friend Parcells and hire him as a consultant to find a new GM. The former Jets and Giants coach seems pretty happy watching the horses in Saratoga and doing some commentary for ESPN. But he always has a football itch and this is the type of temporary job that could fill his football fix and then let him go on his way when the mission is complete.

Parcells still knows the league and understands whose reputation in the scouting community is deserved and whose is not. He hired Jeff Ireland in Miami, who after a few years of struggles now seems to have that franchise heading in the right direction.

Johnson must recognize he does not have the football knowledge to make this hire. Team president Neil Glat seems like a very smart guy, but his background is in the business side of football.

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson made a wise decision by bringing in former Giants GM Ernie Accorsi to oversee their search for a new GM and the team is now zeroing in on Giants personnel man Marc Ross, according to reports.

Parcells would also bring credibility to an organization in desperate need of some. No one would be painting Parcells as a clown.

Would he do it? It’s hard to say. He did not return a text message seeking comment yesterday.

Parcells is close with Tannenbaum and may not want to be involved in any way with his ouster. But he’s also a football man to his core and might enjoy the challenge of interviewing and identifying the best man for this difficult job.

It should then be up to the new GM whether Ryan stays or goes. Fixing the roster needs to begin immediately and it won’t work if the new GM and Ryan are butting heads over what moves need to be made.

Why is it his most important month? There is no accountability for him. He can keep running this franchise into the ground and being a clueless moron for as long as he wants.

Meh, Parcells is 71 years old. Seventy ****ing one. If you're bringing in a guy as a consultant in that regard it's hard to rely on the wits of a 71-year-old being in tact. As evident in the fact that this is a guy that hired Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano during his last front office run.

Just hire whoever on this list is willing to come here:

Marc Ross, Director of College Scouting, New York Giants

Marc Ross has already been interviewed for general manager jobs in the past, and seems like a strong candidate to make the jump this offseason. Few teams have drafted as well as the Giants have during Ross' tenure as director of college scouting. Jason Pierre-Paul and Hakeem Nicks are among the most notable picks during his five years, but Ross has been a part of putting together two Super Bowl rosters. I think he will get his chance at the big time this offseason.

Eric DeCosta, Assistant General Manager, Baltimore Ravens

Eric DeCosta has worked for Ozzie Newsome for the past 17 years. That alone makes him an intriguing GM candidate. Take into account that he has performed a variety of roles in the Ravens' front office, including Director of College Scouting and Director of Player Personel, and DeCosta becomes a very attractive option for team's looking for a general manager. He is thought to be the man who will replace Newsome when his career is over, though, so it may be tough for a team to lure him away.

Mike Maccagnan, Director of College Scouting, Houston Texans

Few teams have developed the type of roster depth that the Houston Texans have over the past four years. Mike Maccagnan has played a vital role in the draft process for the Texans and has proven himself as a talent evaluator. That doesn't always translate into success as a general manager, but it's not a bad starting point. He should be on the radar of teams seeking a new GM.

Brian Gutekunst, Director of College Scouting, Green Bay Packers

Brian Gutekunst has truly worked his way up from the bottom in the scouting world. He started off as an intern and has now been with the Packers for 14 years after a brief stint in Kansas City. The Packers are widely regarded as having one of the most successful scouting departments in the entire NFL. Gutekunst may be young, but he has tons of experience in evaluating talent.

http://www.nfl.com/n...t-gm-candidates

Russ Ball, Packers VP of football administration/player finance: Known as a good people person with an ability to manage, Ball has overseen the Packers cap since 2008 and has 23 years of NFL experience with five teams. He actually got his start as a strength coach. That diversity of experience -- and his association with a championship program -- makes him an intriguing candidate.

Nick Caserio, Patriots director of player personnel: The 36-year-old has quickly become one of the most respected personnel guys on the circuit, with steely focus and drive, and worked extensively on the coaching side as well during the Patriots' championship years. As one GM said, "He gets it." That likely would be apparent in an interview setting, but it won't be easy to pry him from Bill Belichick's side.

Brian Gaine, Dolphins director of player personnel: Miami's instability notwithstanding, Gaine was part of constructing the Cowboys' talent-rich roster in the middle of the decade, sat next to Bill Parcells and Jeff Ireland in the draft room in Miami, and has worked both small-picture (advance scouting) and big-picture (team building) parts of an operation. Gaine is well-regarded in the scouting community.

Tom Gamble, 49ers director of player personnel: This season in San Francisco has caused a lot of folks to re-evaluate how the 49ers were built. Scot McCloughan, having already been a GM, doesn't qualify for this list, but he might get another look as a GM (maybe in Oakland), and Gamble's is another name sure to come up, with his experience in pro and college scouting, contract negotiations and coaching.

Dennis Hickey, Buccaneers director of player personnel: Promoted this year after serving for six years as the team's college scouting director, Hickey played a big part in turning Tampa Bay's roster over, from an aging group under Jon Gruden to its current state as the league's youngest team. Even though the Bucs are struggling now, there's still a strong base to build around.

Charlie Casserly, former GM: Houston Texans from 2000-2006

Scott Pioli, former Director & VP of Player Personnel: Patriots from 2001-2008

Instead of bringing in super old Parcells why can't Woody just read the threads over here on JN ? There are some mighty good suggestions.

Edit: Or just read Jetsfan80's post above.

All I did was delete guys that were listed as "Cap gurus". Plus the people for the Bills and Titans.

Gutekunst sounds interesting. 14 years is a long time to be with an organization that has not gotten off track much in that time. Plus I would love to be able to say that name so often. "You're being a Kunst" can finally be seen as a compliment.

I also don't hate Pioli enough to say no yet either...I like the process the Chiefs have taken in the draft (name brand players, lots of picks), and don't find it different from other probably hotter names right now. Good track record that goes back...A Football Man of lore.

I have thrown out a McDaniels/Pioli combo and still don't hate it with a passion...

Hire DeCosta or Maccagnan. Those two will do well at the next level. Get rid of Tanny and Sanchez and let one of these two pick the new QB and OC. Its clear that Tanny, Sanchez and Sparano must go. I say Draft QB - Mike Glennon from NC State. Just watch the senior bowl and the combines...the guy is a beast.

Maybe if you post the same exact thing in seven more threads, it might actually come true.

Parcells hired Tannenbaum as his errand boy. Johnson made him king.

Still, this isn't what Parcells does. He doesn't lead from behind a desk, and he definitely wouldn't work for a dope like Johnson again. Plus, he just looks and sounds worn down. I love the guy and every Jets fan should kiss the guy's ass for bringing 4 years of legitimacy to a clown franchise, but he's not the right hire here at this point.
