Zimmerman: Tannenbaum to be FIRED on Monday Funday
Posted 27 December 2012 - 02:31 PM
According to a league source, Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum will be removed from his position on Monday.
Sunday will be the last day of the Jets' 2012 season. It also will likely be the last day that Mike Tannenbaum will be the team's general manager.
As first reported on Sunday, according to a league source, Tannenbaum will be relieved of his duties as team owner Woody Johnson searches for a replacement.
One potential scenario is that Tannenbaum will be reassigned to another role within the organization.
Tannenbaum, who joined the Jets in 1997 as director of player contract negotiations, was elevated to general manager in 2006, replacing Terry Bradway who has remained with the team as a senior personnel executive.
The Jets are 6-9 going into the final game of the season. They have reached the playoffs in only three of Tannenbaum's seasons as general manager: 2006 wildcard game, 2009 AFC Championship and the 2010 AFC Championship.

We've seen how the Jets front office has handled things over the years. And this Tebow mess, what good GM or HC would want to join an organization where the Owner demands to get a player for the tabloids and not for improving the team?
If Rex stays, it becomes one of those, GM came onboard but didn't' get the coach and coaches he wanted. Start over. If Rex picks some QB or for whatever reason, they stick with Sanchez next season because he lights up the Bills, it'll be another few wasted seasons cause the GM came onboard and didn't get his QB.
I honestly think they need to fire everybody and start over. But that never happens. Terry is around. Tanny will be around. And some new GM will hear whispers.
