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.


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.

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.


The Jets are the NFL equivalent of West Virginia.

Caldwell back for second interview

By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com

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.

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.

Woody, during the press conference, said what great outside candidates the Jets were interviewing, and then quickly interjected the great internal candidates also. It was almost an afterthought, in deference to Cohen.

i do not believe Cohen is the guy.

I've been thinking about this. After the press conference I thought Cohen was going to be the guy. Now I'm having second thoughts. Gamble, Caldwell, Ross, and Cohen all have interviewed but we've yet to name a replacement GM. What I really think is NONE of them wants to be the GM here. In typical Jets fashion, we've been turned down by every single GM candidate that we've interviewed. Even our in house guy is going to turn us down because he knows first hand what kind of circus this organization is. I bet he goes to Cleveland. I just have a gut feeling that we're going to be left scrambling to find a replacement for Tannenbaum. Who in their right mind would want to be the GM of this team after watching that press conference?

I'm not even kidding that this whole press conference ruined my whole day. I was getting so excited and now I couldn't feel worse. I guess anything's possible, and I hope we can look back and quote me for being such a nervous btch after one of the better candidates comes in at the last second. Cause i feel about as bad as I've ever felt as a fan right now

Want to understand-how exactly would Jimmy Haslem introduce Scott Cohn as the man to replace Mike Holmgren as GM? How would you sell that to your fan base, and how could you look in the mirror afterward?

The Jets are playing us. The headhunter, the vaunted search, toiday's press conference, all smoke and mirrors to cover up that until further notice the overgrown child named Rex Ryan is running the whole damn show.


and you thought that Rex was just a DC. He is actually a jedi that has mindfvcked the whole jets organization into doing his bidding. yes jets fans, let your anger flow through you...

Jets want a guy who will work as a team member. None of these guys seem to want to do this. I expect the Jets headhunters will find an unknown candidate to fill the spot

perhaps you should re-examine your expectations.

They really had my hopes up when I got really wrapped up into the whole Korn/Ferry "new attitude in the office" thing. Then Rex spoke and Woody said "I concur" and that was probably when the depression set in.

new attitudes don't win rings. Franchise QBs do. Until the Jets get one and Brady retires, expect more of the same.
