    Brian Gaine to Interview for Jets GM Job this Week

    just saw it on twitter per Ben Volin ... damn Jets always trying to pick from our team. most times i don't care when they do it because most times it ends up being a scrub, but this time i'm bothered because Gaine seems like he has a real bright future as an NFL GM

    THOUGHTS?

    In an ideal world Gaine gets the Dolphins GM job this time next year. I hope the Jets dont get him.

    Only plus i can see is it will take whoever their new GM is years to turn that franchise around.

    Old players, $19 million over the cap, horrific quarterback situation with no readily available fixes...That team is in bad shape. If Gaine grabs the job, he will have his work cut out for him.
    "Ignorance is not an excuse" were the words Goodell used when describing why those involved in the Saints bounty scandal would not avoid punishment.

    Honestly it's a very easy fix. You cut Jason Smith (due 12 mil, $0 guaranteed) you cut Bart Scott, you cut Calvin Pace. Even with the cap penalties, you're still taking a full 27 million dollars off the cap. Cut Sanchez in July, spread that cap hit out. You've now got 14-15 million in cap room. Sign Alex Smith to a 3 year/30 million/15 guaranteed contract. Smith is "game manager" to "good", and that's a huge upgrade for the Jets.

    They are in no real trouble, and it shocks me to keep seeing people say they are in trouble for years.

    Oh you armchair GMs that think the NFL is like Madden...lol ya kill me you really do.

    k, say they do that, then they get Alex Smith...who's to say he's not worse than Sanchez with the NYJ's terrible line and skill position talent?

    Remember, Smith was pretty terrible before Harbaugh got there, and apparently Harbaugh still doesn't think he's all that great otherwise he would've never have pulled this Kaepernick move.

    So now, all you've done is add another terrible Quarterback contract, and once again failed to do what the Jets have continued to fail at the past several years...and that's truly building a talented team.

    They don't have the draft picks to do it. They don't have the cap space to do it (and as a side note, the Jets and Eagles for that matter should really highlight to all you armchair QBs that championships are not one through Free Agency, so when we don't make any huge signings this off season, please don't whine like bitches about Ireland being terrible, he's being responsible and setting this team up to be able to re sign the talent it develops within, which is the most cost effective and long lasting form of building a team).

    So again, this Jets vacancy is a poisonous situation (that is of course unless you are taking over as the Madden gm, in which case you can make those signings, and play a season on rookie level with 15 minute quarters so that you can run up the stats, and quickly improve your team)

    we still have a young/i their prime core to build around. The QB needs to be fixed but he ahs shown he can win in this league so the new OC will have to bring that back out of him. There's no job in this league that cannot be turned around quickly, that's how the league is these days. the worst team one year can be a playoff team the next and vice versa.

    Gaine was a Jet before he was a dolphin by the way

    Gaine is a rising star. However, that job is filled with land minds. Not sure if I would want it. It is an opportunity, but that is not a good job.
