Jets expected to hire Tom Gamble

77 posts in this topic

chances of hiring a GM before Tuesday's anticipated Rex Ryan/Woody Johnson news conference remain highly unlikely. The Jets may speed up the search because of the competition for top candidates, but they want to be smart and deliberate.

If the Jets aren't convinced they've found the right man by the end of the first round of interviews, which will be Monday, they could expand the search to include more candidates.

Conventional wisdom would be that taking time and making the right decision is a good thing, with Woody it means we'll probably wind up with Scott Cohen, Joey Clinkscales or Parcell's will sell him on Pioli. Woody thinking too much is never a good thing.

Either A: They have a handshake with Gamble and are just looking to satisfy the Rooney Rule on Monday or B: Korn/Ferry is trying to manipulate the market with a steady stream of rumors to make it seem as though the Jets job is super-desirable. I'd be a little hesitant to let my #1 choice go out to San Diego and interview, myself, but who knows?

Rooney rule is the dumbest rule in sports, after the defensive holding for auto first down despite field position. Lets say they did want Gamble, they have no legal way to seal that and like u said, can now lose him to a competitor.

Pretty funny that Woody needed to throw 200k at a guy to tell him to hire the same guy pretty much everyone on this forum could've.

Funny and true

Rooney rule is alright and makes sense unlike the Brady Rule where atleast one gay candidate needs to be interviewed!

On one hand it sucks not being able to sign your preferred candidate.

OTOH, this is the Jets we are talking about, and the forced discipline being imposed on them by having to interview Marc Ross is probably a good thing. He was a major contributor to two championship rosters in the past five years, after all.

However, how insulting must it be to Marc Ross knowing that you are the token black guy. Just another case of political correctness showing to be ill-thought out at best...

At least it gets some minority candidates facetime with owners and GM's that they wouldn't be able to get otherwise which could always lead to jobs down the road. Whats the alternative?

Most rules and laws are made because people chose not to do the right thing. It may not be perfect but it has helped more non caucasian coaches to be hired and seeing the success some have had i think its added to the game of football.

Francesca is a fat idiot too but he's not wrong. I think it's pretty clear that Rex has Woody's ear regardless of whether the hire turns out to be Gamble or not.

Doesn't matter. Whomever holds the GM position will be a failure. Whoever the new GM drafts in April will be a failure. The team is a failure. The coaching staff is a failure. The entire organization is a failure. They have been a failure since 1969. They will always be a failure. Nothing will ever change it. The Cubs will win a World Series before the Jets as much as win a AFC Championship. If the entire team was injected with syphillis not a single player would die because the disease would be unable to be successful around all that failure.

Why do I fear that you are going to give yourself the POTW next week for this one? :)

Just a couple of thoughts/questions:

1. Im not a Smith supporter, but didnt this kid have like 4 OC's in 5 yrs? I mean, thats gotta be difficult for any young QB, no?

2. Technically, based on the hunch that pure breed Anglo Saxons are a dwindling race...wouldnt Gamble actually be the minority candidate? (I would just like to add that I am a minority for the record)

3. Does anybody think that Gamble isnt the route we should go...and why?

Here's the problem:

-He's done the job before. (we always hire first-timers into these positions)

-People have heard of him. (see note above)

At some point the jets will announce, with much fanfare, the thrilling promotion of Timmy the bathroom cologne attendant.

Hate to bump my own post, but when this drama all shakes out let's not forget who called it.

One thing I forgot though: Timmy is on the Giants' payroll, but they'll end up letting us do a 50yr shared arrangement. He'll be a GM during our week, and he'll hawk the Avon Racecar on theirs. (He's got some Avon Bowling Pin but you have to tip him)

I am not sure what happened there but Brian rarely tries to break stuff. He has a lot of contacts so I am sure he felt this was a done deal. Although his contacts are more in the SNY realm since he doesn't cover the team on a daily basis.

It still might happen.
