Found January 13, 2013 on Helmet2Helmet:
The Jets have cast a wide net in their search to replace general manager Mike Tannenbaum, with the job seemingly up for grabs. Unfortunately for Gang Green, they can't seem to reel anyone in. "They can't give the position away," FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported Sunday. "They are now calling back candidates that turned them down, saying please reconsider." Among the most reliable insiders, Glazer added that New York is getting "rebuffed a lot" due to several circumstances -- Rex Ryan not included. https://twitter.com/JayGlazer/status/290508624395124736 https://twitter.com/JayGlazer/status/290510750261334016 The Jets have interviewed at least 12 known candidates, including ex-Bears GM Jerry Angelo, considered a "name to watch." But most up-and-comers, such as 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble, appear to be wary of a desolate situation, and don't watch to hitch their star to a barren wagon. With Ryan heading ...

  • The Jests have shown their lack of any sense in their teatment of Tim Tebow, their sticking with Sanchez, their sticking with Ryan. Why would anyone competent want to get involved with such a disfunctional Minor League team. Their treatment of Tim Tebow was asinine. They would not even give him a chance. If his throwing motion lacked something, didn't they have a quarterback coach to work with him, or didn't they trust their quarterbacks coach either. Tebow proved what he could do in Denver when given a chance. He certainly did as well as Manning in the playoffs. I've also noticed that there are more quarterbacks who are the leading ground gainers in particular games. Kapernick, Griffin, Wilson to name three. It seems that the NFL is about only seeing things one way, whether its quarterbacks, or linemen who are huge and ferocious(or dirty) like Suh. I guess that tells you where the money is.
  • The differance is those guys could throw the ball.....ryan is no worse than 3/4 of the coaches out there & Sanchez is better than 3/4 of the Qb's out there.....Their OC stunk as did their QB coach...Not to mention he had 0 weapons......Give him Flacco's recievers & Rb and You'll see who's better not to mention a defense that stunk between the 20's & a punt returner that didn't return punts & they were constantly starting at the 10 yard line...They need Linebackes, A reciever & a Homerun RB and You'll see a different team...not too difficult to see..
  • Why would any self respecting GM want to associate themself with that 3 Ring Circus coached by the worst coach in the NFL? The owner already said that the GM will not be able to fire that ******* ryan. But I kind of like that ryan was retained, he's a barrel of laughs when he masquerades as an NFL Head Coach.

No Huddle – New York Jets Continue To Drift With No Direction

It is late January and the Jets are lost in a fog with no direction in place for 2013 yet. Don’t fret folks we have been here plenty of times before. Let’s allow it to all play out, or at least wait for the ink on Rex Ryan’s other arm to dry first. Ryan’s next tattoo that includes a franchise player’s number, is where the ultimate answer lies. We all know that. So make...

Jets will reportedly interview Stanford’s offensive coordinator

According to Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports, the New York Jets will interview Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton on either Monday or Tuesday. Feldman also says he’s in the mix for a couple of other NFL offensive coordinator jobs.  I’m sure if Hamilton has a choice, he would choose the other teams over the Jets who are a mess right now.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI...

Vote: Who Is the Greatest Quarterback in Jets History?

Editor’s note: As part of NFL’s Greatest Quarterback, fans will decide the best QB in each team’s history. Joe Namath: Namath’s career statline may not look overly impressive, but he was one of the stars of the AFL and took part in what might be the most famous moment in the league’s history when he guaranteed a victory over the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III and came...

Oh, What a mess for the Jets

It's amazing how fast can things change and if you're a Jets fan, you know what I'm talking about. The Jets have gone through alot in these last two seasons and they have been a perfect example of how hard it is to compete in the NFL these days, even if you had recent playoff success. The Jets have not only missed the playoffs in the last two seasons, but they have...

Report: Jets to interview Cameron for offensive coordinator job

The New York Jets still have not named a new offensive coordinator, and fomer Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will interview for the position on Monday, the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reported.

New York Jets having problems finding new general manager

Tim Tebow’s Brother Shows Off His Christian Faith After Peyton Manning’s Loss

His brother can’t start for the New York Jets, yet Peter Tebow found time to relish the troubles of Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. I’m not big on the Bible and His teachings, but isn’t the above tweet unbecoming of a good Christian man? (Peter got a preaching gig in suburban Denver because of his last name.) Oh, I get it, Tim Tebow was 1-0 in the playoffs for the Broncos...

The New York Jets are basically begging candidates to reconsider taking their open GM job

The New York Jets have interviewed a slew of individuals for their vacant GM position. But apparently, no one wants the job. We already know that candidates have been told that they are stuck with Rex Ryan for at least next season, but according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports that isn’t the issue for some candidates. The issues that are making candidates apprehensive about the job...

Report: Jets Can’t Give GM Job Away

The Jets mess as I like to call the New York Jets organizational downfall in 2012, is still hilarious even though we have entered the off-season stage of it all. After the Jets fired Mike Tannenbaum, it was assumed that shortly after Rex Ryan returned from his vacation there would already be a general manager in place, and the team would prepare for the 2013 season and the changes...

Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton makes half-court shot

Safe to say it’s been a pretty busy week- and busy month overall- for Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. Reports surfaced on Friday that Hamilton is set to interview for the vacant New York Jets offensive coordinator position sometime in the coming days, a mere two weeks after he helped the Cardinal beat Wisconsin 20-14 in the Rose Bowl. As one of the brightest young...

Former Ravens Whipping Boy Cam Cameron Interviewing With New York Jets

Well, that didn’t take long. ESPN is reporting former Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is interviewing for the open OC position with the New York Jets today. If you recall, Cameron was fired by the Ravens after losing to the Redskins and Steelers in the midst of a three game losing streak in Week 14 (so the Week 15 loss to the Broncos was totally not his fault). In an interesting...
