    :lol: I saw Glazer talking about this on the FOX pregame earlier. :lol:

    Even the studio host said he would pass on the job and followed by saying only because I love it here so much while winking. :lol:

    There are only 32 of these jobs in the world. They are well paying jobs and everyone in the field aspires to be a GM one day. Yet the Jests cant give the position away. :rotfl1:

    Looks like Jay Glazer is just a casual, uneducated fan.

    Whiny media and average fans don't realize that the Jets are giving careful consideration and being thorough in there search. :rolleyes2:

    You can't make this stuff up. The Jets have outdone Al Davis in his final years of the Raiders. Seriously, I don't remember ever seeing any professional franchise this bad. Jets fans should be humiliated their owner is putting them through this. What's pathetic is a few of their fans actually believe the **** Woody is shoveling to them. Morons :lol:

    My theory is this...

    1. While Rex may not be the reason candidates are turning down the Jets, I have no doubt he's a problem. Remember when we were looking for a GM way back in the day, Wayne Huizenga told all candidates that they would not be allowed to fire Wanny. Pretty much every candidate withdrew their name.

    2. The cap situation is just difficult. With how the contracts are set up, unless they can get teams willing to make a trade, they cannot get rid of contracts. If they cut players, they'll have dead space.

    Rex is the ringmaster, of course he is part of the reason people are turning down the Jets.

    Jay Glazer and Rex Ryan are good friends. Rex lets Jay Glazer bring his son into Jets training camp, the only reporter who gets that privilege. Enough said.

    Cap problems? They are just going to cut some guys and voila, problem solved. They have no cap problems, a winner for a qb, ,tons of weapons who are really awesome but just got hurt and an awesome coach.

    The jets are not a circus, you're just jealous of all their successes as an elite team over the past decade.


    Hahahah

    Who would want to go there?

    -a d coordinator who can't shut his mouth for a head coach
    -the worst starting qb in the league, being paid waaay too much
    -a brutal press
    -one of the worst cap/talent situations in the league

    tht only thing I could see that would entice someone is if woody gave the gm a guaranteed 5 years and the ability to fire Ryan. Woody has shown he is willing to spend.

    They're in cap hell because of their previous GM that they just fired. This one guy posted this disturbing fact:




    Boy am I glad this is not our situation. Jets are serious contenders for first pick overall if this is true.

    I won't even address the "elite team" comment...

    Moving on, just cutting guys doesn't necessarily solve the problem. I haven't looked at the contracts and don't really care to, but if you cut players with big signing bonuses, all that proration gets accelerated into one year. Cap hits are why you don't see teams pulling a Marlins like coup.

    I'm sure Dave Wannstache would love to take a shot at being a GM again.

    we've been turned down by 1 candidtate who used us to get more money/power from jax.

    this job isn't for everyone. To be in the spotlight and to alreayd have a HC in place it's not an ideal place for someone who has options.

    That bolded statement says it all. Most would argue that Jacksonville is the worst franchise in the league. But, given recent developements and the fact that the Jaguars have come out and said there is no way they are taking Tebow whereas the Jests did, Id say a new contender has emerged for that title. :lol:

    So Glazer saying they've been rebuffed a lot is actually only by just 1 potential GM? Makes sense.

    There's no pressure in jax, he doesn't have Tom Brady to deal with and he could pick his own coach. See the difference?

    I've spoken with too many personnel guys who would relish the #Jets GM job. I'm not buying recent reports nobody wants it.

    Taking that a step further, he also knew that he wasn't saddled with the kind of judgment of an HC who hired The Meatball, more or less calling him "just like me," the ridiculous hellish cap implications including having to keep the worst starting QB in the league since JaMarcus nor sight unseen, any worse of a Tebow-foisting, headline pandering meddlesome owner who tampers with front office decisions. See the difference?.

    So let's ignore Jay Glazer's report but accept Mike McCartney's b/c why?

    No but I think sometimes things get overexaggerated especially w/ the Jets this year.

    Yea like Rex saying how Tebow was going to be used, how they were going to be physically dominant on offense, how Sanchez was going to be a solid QB, how the offense in general was going to be imposing to the opposition, how teams were going to hate playing the Jets, and how good the defense was when they held teams with no offensive ability at all to low yardage production.

    Things change when yor top 2 options in the pass game are out. when you play the majority of a season w/ Kelrey, Schilens, Gates, Cumberland, reuland as your top weapons in the pass game that's not good.

    Oh yea. I forgot how physically dominant Santonio Holmes is in the running game. He is a regular Hines Ward. I can see how his absence ruined all of Rex's plans for them to be phyisically imposing to the point other teams hated playing the Jets.

    Actually things become clearer when the best coach on the staff, present from the get go this season, admits there were were really never any preseason secret packages or sets for Teblow (regardless of who else lined up alongside him). Anyone who doesn't think that The Beancounter was set up as the fall guy for the meddling, attention-whoring, trust fund, tax-cheating owner is either a blind homer or failed Logic101. Not that the Beancounter didn't deserve the heave-ho for the Ponzi Scheme-like cap hell he created, or the caliber of players he either drafted, signed or resigned over the last several years - however, here in the No Spin Zone, we all know who foisted Teblow on the team.

    we actually ran it ok for about half the year(the 2nd half) but w/ no threat in the pass game it made life difficult for the QB. Did you see what the backup did when Mark was out? We had few healthy weapons on O.

    Caldwell used the Jets for a money grab from Jacksonville? :lol: Trouble with that theory is that the Jets offered a 1mil housing allowance and the Jags didn't.

    Caldwell went to Jacksonville where there are no cap issues, he can pick his coach, has no meddling owner and the QB situation, though horrible, is not as bad.

    Comparing Mike McCartney to Jay Glazer. :crazy:

    Considering he was the third option on the team at the beginning of the year and had absolutely no practice time with the 1st string...he did pretty good. 19 completions; 1 TD / 1 Int with a passer rating avg of 91.5 PLUS: NO BUTT FUMBLES!

    I'm sure he got more money than when he first interviewed which is the point. he wanted the jax job, nothing wrong with that. Not everyone can handle being in the spotlight.
