Everyone of Tannenbaum's moves worked out, his only miss could be on Vernon Gholston. But thats to be determine. But he got the right guy with the other first round pick in Dustin Keller, some wanted a WR. But Keller is proving to be a dangerous weapon and is going to be a big time player for us for a long time!
Now we are seeing the effects of going after the "right" players, players that are hard working and good character. This team is a good character team. There isn't a cancer on it.
Also what 2 moves did for a defense is increditable. Kris Jenkins and Calvin Pace have turned around a weak and pathetic run defense so much. They bring so much more toughness and size to the defense. Both are great against the run. Sure Pace isn't the best pass rusher, but his containment on the outside is amazing. Hes worth the money with how good his overall game is.
Mike Tannenbaum is the GM of the year. I haven't seen a team make this many moves and them all working out, people called us the Redskins, but the difference was the Jets got what they payed for. And they knew what they were paying for.

His draft picks have been great, he has found late round steals with Rhodes and Washington, took a future Pro Bowler with the first pick with Revis and then the second with Harris, showed some genius by trading up to get Keller even though we already had Baker and Franks on the roster, with Justin Miller sucking again, he took Lowery who stepped in as a rookie and held down the fort which is pretty good for a rookie.
Then he fills some big holes by getting Jenkins from Carolina, signing Pace, and bolstering the O line with Fanaca and Woody turning one of the worst O lines into one of the best, they sign pro bowler FB Richardson and Bubba Franks to help with the blocking with the running game and it has shown, with Thomas leading the AFC in rushing and Washington being a game breaker whenever he gets the ball,
And top it off with convincing Brett Favre to come to NJ when he wanted to go to Minnesota, Favre has turned our Offense into a high scoring machine that we have not seen on this team since Vinny ran the spread Offense here back in the later 90's.
Everything seems to be clicking at the right time, we are alone id first place, just beatr the unbeaten Titans, and Tannenbaum is a major reason why.
