Turn On The Jets:
Jason La Confora is reporting the New York Jets are starting the process of acquiring a new General Manager. Good news, right? Wrong. Woody Johnson apparently wants the new GM to work with Mike Tannenbaum who will be demoted to a salary cap management type position. Not surprisingly, no credible candidates are interested in such a foolish arrangement.
I love writing and sometimes that leads me to carry on when writing about this team but let’s keep this succinct today, since it is the holidays and this situation is so idiotic it doesn’t deserve that many words.
Making Mike Tannenbaum strictly a salary cap specialist is like making Mark Sanchez a quarterback coach. He has destroyed our salary cap by giving Sanchez arguably the worst contract in sports right now. He has no merit for this position.
No GM that you want running your football team, like Houston’s Director of College Scouting Mike Maccagnan, who has been approached is going to have any interest in this type of power sharing arrangement. As our source has stated all season, Woody and Tannenbaum have a close working relationship and no GM who will want Tannnbaum looking over his shoulder on every move.
Why can’t this organization just flat out fire anybody? Former GM Terry Bradway was just demoted into scouting after an awful tenure, where he could continue to hurt the Jets with his poor personnel decisions. Former Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton, who was awful at his job was only demoted to linebackers coach. Current quarterback coach Matt Cavanaugh stil hasn’t been fired for some ungodly reason. You need to fire ineffective people. Get them completely out of the building.
The Jets are a disaster right now. Woody Johnson can’t be that blind not to see that. The solution is simple. Fire Mike Tannenbaum. Fire Terry Bradway. Fire Tony Sparano. Fire Matt Cavanaugh. Allow the newly hired GM to make the decision on Rex Ryan and go from there.
Happy Holidays everybody!
BEST OF MAXIM
Sometimes, as a professional sports franchise, it’s important to be progressive. And sometimes it’s just a terrible idea. We’ll chalk this one up to the latter.

Jason La Canfora reports that league sources have informed him that the New York Jets are exploring the idea of replacing current GM Mike Tannenbaum with the intentions of keeping him in a ”cap management role.”

The Jets deserved this. This 27-17 loss to the Chargers was Woody Johnson, Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum’s reward for having no plan at all on offense, acquiring Tim Tebow, and failing to improve the Jets skill positions during the offseason. This week’s No Huddle is brought to you by, the Jets offensive line.

Was Sunday the official start of the Greg McElroy era in New York? Chances are the New York Jets will pursue another option at starting quarterback when the offseason begins, which means there is also a good chance Mark Sanchez may have taken his last snap with the team. Otherwise, it would probably cost you more than $10 for his Jets jersey.
As you can see from the photo above...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there’s virtually no trade market for either TIm Tebow and Mark Sanchez. If the Jets want to get rid of either player, they’re likely going to have to release them.
When Sanchez restructured his contract last year to provide cap relief to the team, the new contract language effectively tied the struggling passer to New York through...
NFL sources said it’s a “virtual certainty” that New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow will land a job with the Jacksonville Jaguars next season. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that the Jets will probably honor Tebow’s forthcoming request to be released after this season and become an unrestricted free agent. Mortensen reports that the Jags want Tebow.

Much has been made about the Jets’ quarterback carousel over the past few weeks, but no amount of change under center will matter unless something changes along that offensive line.
Rex Ryan finally made the move away from Mark Sanchez last week, after a five-turnover debacle all but ended his stay in New York. The Jets decided to instead go with second-year quarterback Greg McElroy...
After reports suggested last week that the New York Jets are likely to trade quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow this offseason, the house cleaning is reportedly not going to stop with the quarterback position. CBS Sports reporter Jason LaCanfora is speculating that the Jets organization is going to part ways with offensive coordinator Tony Sparano on what is known as Black Monday...
With Mark Sanchez struggling greatly, the New York Jets surpassed Tim Tebow in favor of Greg McElroy against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Tebow was still active, but the Jets lost 27-17, with many still wondering why he has yet to get a chance.
He was brought into town to be used in Wildcat packages to take advantage of his unique skill set as well as serve as the backup quarterback...
