Jets G.M. hire coming today or tomorrow

Idzik

The Jets should draft linebacker Manti Te’o, if for no reason other than gratitude.

Te’o’s travails have made us all forget, for a while, the dysfunction enveloping the New York Jets.  But we’ll be reminded of it soon, when the Jets hire a General Manager.

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, that hire is coming on Thursday or Friday.

Roughly 10 candidates were interviewed, and an unknown number of them were interviewed a second time in New York this week.  The finalists are believed to be John Idzik of the Seahawks (pictured), Omar Khan of the Steelers, and Jets assistant G.M. Scott Cohen.

Whatever the Jets do, the move will be criticized and the G.M. will be scrutinized and another bad season could get everyone fired in 2014.

    I don’t know why they didn’t fire Rex Ryan. He’s the reason for all the dysfunction on this team

    Hire the guy that wants to trade Mark Sanchez the fastest and has the best plan to sucker somebody into taking him. Removing overpaid QBs that are not efficient or valuable is a great way to start rebuilding for the future.

    Exactly what the Jets need right now, yet another “capologist” with little to no talent evaluation skills. Go Green!

    Did the janitor accept the position?

    My bet is for Cohen. Why would someone from outside want to work there. Might never recover from it.

    This just in. In an effort to increase the intelligence and competence of the Jets management, and decrease the dysfunction and drama, Woody Johnson just announced that the following are now being considered for the GM post:

    Charlie Sheen
    Hank Williams, Jr.
    Elmer Fudd
    Lindsey Lohan
    Carrot Top
    Cher
    Wiley Coyote
    Glenn Beck
    Snoop Dogg

    forget the J-E-T-S if the Steelers lose Omar khan it will be a huge loss this guy has been invaluable to them. although everyone knew his day was coming as he deserves a shot in some front office he is most powerful with the numbers, period.

    Rex Ryan should have been fired, then they would get a decent GM. Now it’s a question of who will work in that place with Rex. No one wants the job and who can blame them. It’s like working with a bunch of idiots.

    Is Bernie Madoff still in the mix?

    Jet’s new GM, Manti Te’o’s Girlfriend.

    Feel sorry for that poor bastard.

  14. thebigtebowski says: Jan 17, 2013 10:11 PM

    Exactly. Lets bring in another guy with no personnel experience and Rex Ryan continue to run the show

    According to ESPN and the Daily news, the two final candidates John Idzik and Omar Khan are drawing straws to see who becomes the next GM… The loser gets the job.

    Its also reported the Woody Johnson narrowed it down to these two candidates because only wants people with quirky funny names …like himself.
