Assistant Gm Scotty Cohen gaining support

Recommended Posts

had to be. Again....you DON'T keep the coach and fire the GM.

Nobody credible will come.

Wow just wow.

I am not sure about that. If there is a more qualified guy to be HC that the JETS could bring in, I would be all for a HC change.

But just changing a HC as an ego centric move by the next GM is something that should get the GM candidate out of town on the next flight. Think that;s what happened with Gamble.

If the JETS are smart they are telling the next GM he can make decision on the HC by next season (if he does not have a winning season) or 2 seasons when his contract expires. If he is not winning he should be gone and the GM can hire a new HC.

But right now it looks like Woody just wants to promote Cohen in house so the keys of the organization are essentially in Rex's hands. That would be AWFUL.

Rex may be a great defensive coach and a decent HC that can lead the team but he is not a personnel guy. If Rex is in charge of everything expect to see some seasons that may have people longing for the Kotite era!

Hey Hess, maybe I was right all along, maybe we WOULD have been better off with the Dolans winning the Jets over Johnson &....at least the Jets would be playing their games in Jets Stadium on the West Side of Manhattan instead of sharing one with the Giants who already own the new one-just like they owned the old one

we could have, at least had...something to hang our hats on.

and let's face it bro, they couldn't possibly BE any worse than the clueless, unconcerned clown that we have owning the team now. Why couldn't Woody have been given the same advice his brother gave his nephew on that HBO special a few years back-take up either collecting old maps or philately (stamp collecting). Anybody else remember that show?

Guys, let's relax here. This HAS to be a non-story and that Woody is going to do the right thing and get a qualified candidate, outside of the organization.

You don't spend a couple hundred thousand dollars for a search company, and then hire internally. No one is that stupid.

I can't tell if this is sarcasm, did you miss todays press conference? Woody is that stupid

This organization needs a CULTURE shift and a CHANGE in the way that they are conducting business, evaluating players and developing talent.

This would be an unmitigated disaster

Never going to happen with a clueless fool as an owner. The rot is from the top.

Caldwell back for second interview

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The Jets could be getting closer to naming a new general manager.

Falcons director of player personnel David Caldwell, whom they interviewed last Friday, was brought back for a second interview, according to sources.

Caldwell is in demand. He already has interviewed three times with the Jaguars for their GM vacancy.

The Jets have interviewed at least four candidates for the job, including 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble, Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross and Jets assistant GM Scott Cohen.

Gamble was considered the early favorite, but Caldwell started to gain momentum over the weekend as team officials evaluated the situation. It's not known if Gamble was invited back for a second interview.

Owner Woody Johnson, speaking Tuesday at a news conference, declined to comment on the search. He did, however, confirm that the new GM won't have the power to fire Rex Ryan this offseason. Johnson wouldn't say if the GM would have that power in 2014. The GM will have final say on personnel, the owner said.

Johnson's desire to retain Ryan probably reduced the pool of interested candidates, although he insisted that isn't the case.

"They know he's a good coach," Johnson said, revealing that Ryan will be involved in the search.

maybe you guys should see if this actually happens. Ya know. before you cry about it.

This is the only way to drive post counts. Max asked us to post more so he makes more ad money.

And also it makes it look like we care... As Woody said, if we didnt care we wouldnt be posting or calling into shows or threatening to cancel our PSL's

If the Jets actually do this, we'll have to come up with a whole new phrase to describe this team. Still using the phrase "same old Jets" would be far too great of an insult to dare compare these guys to any of those past teams, regardless of if they had as few as one win. Nothing can possibly compare to a team who would not once, but twice in a row, hire their GM in-house, both times after coming off of laughably horrendous seasons which he had a hand in, that included a roster of crappy starting talent with absolutely zero depth.

Nightmare. This franchise needs a strong voice from the outside, period. There hasn't been any fresh air in the front office since Parcells left.

I 100% agree, as do all others(?) in here. But what I can not grasp is why Woody is prepared to screw us all over once again? He will loose a big part of the fanbase and that will cost him big bucks. I am prepared to let Rex stay one more year and evaluate after that. But why oh why give him this divine power? He should be afraid of loosing his job after next season and how could anybody describe that wt as sophisticated is beyond me.

I can´t understand why a man would love to throw all credability and future out the window. The Jets are already the laughing stock of the league, now is the time to change all of that. Not build on it. This is absolute bullsh*t.

the Jets could have 0 fans and sell no tickets and still make money from the TV contract which is a 1/32 slice of a 10 billion dollar per year pie (313 mil). People say that winning will make Woody money, that's not really true. 31 teams fall short every year and they all make money. and btw no one buys an NFL team to make money. there's alot easier and better ways to invest than owning an NFL franchise.

The Jets are the NFL equivalent of West Virginia.

cross him off the list.

if true, really odd. He flew to NJ this morning for 2nd interview. Usually that means 1st interview great and 2nd talk is for contract terms. What the hell happened? Jags threw boatload of cash at him? Gamble really was #1 all along? Ross flying under radar?

Ok fair point, but lets talk about why you should buy a team then. Hopefully you have been a lifetime fan or close to it. You want your team to win SB as you are most likely a very competetive guy. You want to be taken serious as you are a successful business man.

What is wrong with this Woody? Where does he come from, I mean what made him buy the team in the first place? There must be another reason.

I'm hoping Gamble was the target all along and there's a lot of misinformation intentionally coming out of Floram Park. About time they learn to manipulate the media.

But I guess you can't rule out the possibility Caldwell heard that PC and passed. I can't see how that would happen given he had to have been told the situation in the 1st interview.
