It's interesting that Tannenbaum last year and A.J. Smith this year were willing to dip into the free agent pool to fill what they perceived to be needs.

A.J. Smith has said he feels the Chargers now have a playoff-caliber team.
Quote:
In all seriousness, Smith has surveyed the NFL landscape as well as his own roster and likes what he sees. ďI think we are a very good team, a playoff-caliber team,Ē Smith said.ďWe made changes. We feel we got better. Iím very excited about the upcoming season.
In New York, it was Coach Rex Ryan, not GM Mike Tannenbaum, who had positive comments about the Jets' prospects.

Hope springs eternal on both coasts

OMG! What a meanie poo!

Quote:
ets coach Rex Ryan didnít wish defensive end Shaun Ellis well in New England on Sunday, but he did mention that he respects Ellis. The longtime Jet isnít buying it.

ďI have a lot of respect for the guy, obviously. It seems like itís not mutual. I respect him,Ē Ellis told Patriots reporters Monday.

Ellis may have a point. The Jets only offered a veteranís minimum c0ntract, and thatís how you really show respect.

Speaking on NFL Live Monday, Ross Tucker said the Jets had concerns Ellis would be a bad influence on youngsters Kenrick Ellis and Muhammad Wilkerson. Tucker said there was a feeling that Ellis wasnít totally with the program and didnít practice hard. Those concerns were expressed to Tucker before Ellis jumped ship.

The lack of a decent offer to Ellis from the Jets says a lot more than this press conference back and forth.

They have no 3rd (could turn into 2nd) next year.

Last year they had 3 selections.


This habit, over time, will sink that team imvho. You can not sustain long term success without a constant influx of young talent, and the Jets are not doing that. They are giving up draft picks to rent players. If they win it all, great gamble. But it IS a gamble.
Solid post

I didn't want to merge obviously with the "hot mess" thread, but had to look this old guy up.

Good times.

It appears it was, in fact, accurate.

This thread contrasted general managers Mike Tannenbaum of the Jets and A.J. Smith of the Chargers.

They shared a similarity. Both teams have been backsliding in recent years.

As of today, neither A. J. Smith nor Mike Tannenbaum has kept his job.

It will be interesting to see if they move on to other NFL teams.
