So at least Tannenbaum's firing is somewhat official. Still waiting to see what capacity they stupidly keep him under to scare off new potential GMs.

When I saw this thread title, I briefly hoped it was referring to a football executive, like the Panthers hiring Ernie Accorsi. Then I remembered that Woody is significantly dumber than Jerry Richardson.

Reflect on that last sentence for a second.

Woody is dumb enough to include Rex in the interview and decision making process to hire his own next "boss". Think I am kidding? Just wait.

There is a finite number of people who are a. capable of being an NFL GM and b. a smaller pool of those people who will put up with having the 2 previous GMs down the hall 2nd guessing them. And for a guy that won't spend up to the salary cap Johnson will now pay a headhunter to find a GM which he could probably do with a few phone calls and an internet connection. And he did this to hire them president the immortal Neil Glatt.

We are fvcked every which way.

Woody Johnson is cheap, cares only about media buzz instead of winning, clueless to the task at hand and loyal to people who kiss his ass.

The Jets also used Korn/Ferry when they hired current team president Neil Glatt.

It would be fitting!

The fact that Rex will survive this is so disturbing, he is as responsible, if not more than Tanny

The ratings have never been higher and teams have never been more profitable. Pretty sure the owners think Goodell is doing a damn fine job.

I just want this firm to be able to find someone tall, sturdy, hardended/steely, and handsome that once enjoyed the glory of playing the sport of Football. One of these Men is pretty much the only way I could see this situation turning around. My suggestion would be the latest kid from the latest and greatest team, though the level of success of the previous team can vary so long as publications agree that this franchise does things the Right Way, which is of course to hire Football Men to run the Football Show.

Overdid it.

Completely different. The commish handles the business of the nfl being one of the biggest entertainment brands in the world, juggling lots of different balls, none of which are talent evaluation and player personnel decisions. I want a high powered CEO type or one of the great corporate managers running the nfl, I do not want him running my team's draft board.
