Found January 13, 2013 on
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 at hand.
A funny thing has happened along the way. The Jets for some odd reason can’t find a general manager, or as Jay Glazer of Fox Sports put it, “they can’t give the job away.”
“They can’t give the position away,” Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reported Sunday. “They are now calling back candidates that turned them down,saying please reconsider.”
Glazer points out that it’s less about head coach Rex Ryan, and more about the salary cap issues, the quarterback issues, and the owner Woody Johnson.
BEST OF MAXIM
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.
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.

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. Cameron was dismissed as the Ravens' offensive coordinator on Dec. 10 and was replaced by quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell. Jets head coach Rex Ryan and...
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...
Try as they might, Jets can't seem to find a new GM.
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...
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...
