The long off season looms
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:18 AM) what up home dawgs?
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:22 AM) long time no chat, Ya boy has returned from the depths. Good to see everyone alive and well. Another season down the drain... what else is new? Fitz coming back next yr means we wont be going to the superbowl. We seriously need to land a QB. I hope Petty is the future and Im still quietly waiting for Geno to show up. IF they retain him it would speak volumes
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 January 2016 - 11:23 AM) I'm done with Geno. Never really expected much from him from the beginning. So I'm also looking for Petty to be the future.

MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:16 PM) S-Dubb??.Who's that guy?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:17 PM) FIRE S-DUBB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Dubb and Amen? Did I take a wrong turn and land back in 2007?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Haha good to see both of you
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:28 PM) I don't care if Cro comes back, I think Marcus Williams can start opposite Revis. Hes a ball hawk and has performed well everytime hes called on.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) I want Fitz back as starter, he lacks arm talent but he is scrappy
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) The team loves him as a leader and he is a good bridge QB as we groom a QB of the future.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He also has top notch pocket awareness.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He allows our playmakers to make plays. After years of terrible QB play, I'll take 31 TD 15 INTs almost 4,000 yards
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 February 2016 - 12:41 AM) I can't stop thinking about the off season...... what the hell are we gonna do!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Maccagnan is going to have to show his worth
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) They can't have Wilkerson on that franchise tag, they have to sign him long term with a small cap hit or trade him. Otherwise we are in trouble with other FAs.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) We need Harrison back, you can't run a effective 3-4 without a stud NT.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:01 AM) I hope we get Harrison back on a 4 yr contract.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:55 PM) I really think we are going to have to tag and trade Wilkerson
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) If we keep wilk we lose Harrison or Fitzpatrick maybe both
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) And ivory
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:23 PM) We can't keep Wilkerson, Richardson, and Williams. A move has to be made
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) If the Jets want to go cheaper, they can try to trade Wilkerson and have Richardson/Williams for cheap
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Then they can re-sign Harrison, FItzpatrick, Ivory, and maybe Powell.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Kaepernick apparently wants out of SF and wants to join the Jets
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Guess he sees the Jets as a team with a great WR tandem and a quality OC who builds a offense around the players
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) No thanks
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) Unless he's dirt cheap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:30 AM) The jets would be fools to take on that contract
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 02:09 PM) keep powell, snakcs, wilkerson, and fitz. let ivory walk, trade richardson, cut cromartie, restructure brick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 04:18 PM) Marshall said no to Kaepnerick, he wants FItzpatrick as his QB
vjdbbq Icon : (04 February 2016 - 12:07 PM) Where's Rob ? I need some ass shots !!!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:16 PM) its crazy how dead this site is
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:16 PM) its super bowl Sunday!!
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:47 PM) Everybody is at Rob's house ; checking out the asses !!!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (07 February 2016 - 05:17 PM) Hope Cotchery gets a ring tonight
santana Icon : (07 February 2016 - 07:04 PM) Yeah I would rather see a panther win
santana Icon : (07 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Zzzz
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (07 February 2016 - 09:03 PM) I want to see Manning go out on top
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:03 PM) Jerricho got screwed on the call in the first quarter but he dropped a few later on .
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:04 PM) Screw Manning and his chicken parm .
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:29 PM) We need a pass rushing LB!! Look at Denver.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:30 PM) Nothing against manning but he wasn't good at all this year and gives me hope that we can reach a super bowl with Fitzpatrick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (08 February 2016 - 06:42 AM) Denver has two future HOF edge rushers with Miller and Ware.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (08 February 2016 - 08:01 PM) NO to kapergimmick

The Jets' search for a new general manager kicks off Friday with the start of the interview phase. There are six known candidates for the position, with former Browns GM Tom Heckert, 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble and Packers director of football operations John Dorsey scheduled for interviews this weekend.

Heckert is the only person on the Jets' list with GM experience, which is a bit troubling. Like other teams in the GM market, the Jets appear to be focused on young, up-and-coming talent evaluators. Everybody is looking for the next Thomas Dimitroff (Falcons GM).

That said, don't discount Heckert. There were rumblings Thursday that he's deemed a strong candidate by the Jets -- that is, if he doesn't wind up in Kansas City with former colleague Andy Reid. There are five GM openings and most of the teams are interviewing the same guys, so it sounds like it'll be a game of musical chairs.

Anyway, here's a closer look at the Jets' situation, examining the candidates and others who should be candidates:

Heckert: There are two schools of thoughts on him, based on people I've talked to in the scouting community. Some see him as a good football man who got caught up in an ownership change and never got to finish the job in Cleveland. Others look at his record with the Browns (14-34) and find it hard to believe the Jets would go for a recycled GM who got fired only a few days ago.

"He has more qualifications than anybody on their list, but guys usually don't get recycled that quickly," a longtime GM told me. "It would defy logic."

Prior to the Browns, Heckert, 45, worked for the Dolphins and Eagles. In Philadelphia, he teamed with Reid to build a lot of successful teams, but Heckert never had final say until he got to Cleveland.

Gamble: He's one of the "hot" candidates, and there are some who believe he's atop the Jets' list. He comes with the blessing of Bill Polian, who is the godfather in this year's GM searches. Teams are coming to him for counsel, and he gave the Jets a glowing recommendation of Gamble.

The thing is, there's competition. Gamble already has interviewed for the Jaguars' vacancy, and he reportedly will meet with the Chargers, too. The head-coaching situation could be a factor for him. In San Diego, he'd be able to hire his own coach. The Jets and Jaguars have coaches. The word on the street is that the Jets are telling potential candidates they won't be considered unless they agree to keep Rex Ryan for a year.

Gamble's stock has risen because of the 49ers' success. Their roster is loaded with talent, and not just first-round picks. If the Jets hire him, will he try to acquire QB Alex Smith?

Dorsey: He, too, has been mentioned as a possibility with the Chiefs, if Reid gets hired. Dorsey, 52, probably has the most well-rounded resume among the candidates, because he has worked in both college and pro scouting, but he has spent virtually his entire adult life with the Packers -- as a player, scout and executive. That means he has been exposed to only one way of doing things -- in a small market, no less.

Dorsey followed Mike Holmgren to the Seahawks in 1999 as the director of player personnel, but returned to the Packers after only 14 months. He turned down an opportunity last year to interview for the Colts' GM job. Curiously, Dorsey hasn't been linked to the Chargers' opening -- odd, because one of his mentors, former Packers GM Ron Wolf, is coordinating the search as a consultant.

David Caldwell, Falcons, director of player personnel: The Jets have received permission to speak with Caldwell. He's getting a lot of love from the Jaguars, who already have interviewed him twice, according to reports. He's also on the Chargers' list.

Caldwell, 38, is young, but we know owner Woody Johnson isn't opposed to hiring young executives. He made Mike Tannenbaum the GM when he was 37. Like Gamble, Caldwell worked for Polian, so that probably will help his cause. He has spent the past five years with Dimitroff, one of the smartest guys in the business.

Interesting note on Caldwell: His college roommate at John Carroll University was Greg Roman, the 49ers' offensive coordinator. Just throwing it out there. Obviously, Gamble also has a Roman connection.

Marc Ross, Giants, director of college scouting: In addition to interviewing with the Jets, he'll meet with the Jaguars, Chargers and Panthers. Ross, 39, has interviewed for at least three GM jobs in previous years, so he's definitely on the radar.

The Princeton-educated Ross doesn't have as much scouting experience as the other candidates, but he works for a quality organization that does things the right way. He has contributed to some excellent drafts, but Ross lacks experience in other areas of the football operation. Plus, would someone from the Giants really want to work for the Jets?

The Jets will satisfy the Rooney Rule by interviewing Ross, a minority.

Scott Cohen, Jets, assistant GM: The top in-house candidate has worked alongside Tannenbaum since 2008, devoting most of his time to pro scouting. He has uncovered a few unheralded players, namely Austin Howard. Cohen is a well-respected football guy, but it would be a tough sell to the fan base, promoting a Tannenbaum lieutenant after a 6-10 season.

Outside looking in: The most qualified guy out there might be former Bears GM Jerry Angelo, but it doesn't appear as if the Jets have contacted him. How is that possible? He built the Bears' 2006 Super Bowl team and compiled a .543 winning percentage in 10 years. He's a proven talent evaluator and knows how to run an organization.

If the Jets are hellbent on finding the next rising star, they should talk to Dolphins assistant GM Brian Gaine, who is well-regarded in league circles. He's a Bill Parcells disciple, having worked with Parcells with the Jets, Cowboys and Dolphins. He's familiar with all areas of the operation -- draft, pro personnel, salary cap, etc. Plus, he's a New York guy.
