I think the average fan like myself, do know know the GM candidates like we would Head Coaches or Coordinator's.

With that said, I wonder if Korn Ferry search firm is dragging this process out too long, while other teams are getting the pick of the litter ?

I know the GM position is crucial for the Jets future success; however, I know I'm getting anxious to hire both coordinators as well.

Go Jets...Cyborg

I think the litter is full of runts and there all pretty much equal, I don't feel like we missed on anything. Plus I don't think the GM is that big of deal to be honest. I can't think of one team that has made it b/c of the stupid GM. It's QB first and Coach 2nd. We need to get our QB and everyone will look smart, just look north.

quite frankly, all I hear from Steeler country each year is the cap hell they are in and the cuts they have to make to get under. The personnel guys keep the cipboard stocked while this Khan guy cuts payroll. What cap genius moves has he performed?

At the end of the day, it is looking like the novices are not impressing................I am leaning towards Colangelo who has experience building a winner in Chicago.

I think it's pretty much a done deal that Thurman will be the new Defensive Coordinator, so that leaves a HUGE opening at Offensive Coordinator

I really want the Jets to find a diamond in the rough.  The Bears GM did a solid job, but remember Rex Grossman was their QB.  If we can't have a top GM like Polian, I want us to find someone that has a fresh approach and some progressive ideas about how to build a franchise.

Popp is really intriguing with his experience as a successful GM, but I choose Idzik because of his solid and balanced resume.

Tom Gamble.

He has the recent touch......gem after gem in SF....

Normally I would  be all over Pittsburgh guy.... but it seems FINALLY Pittsuburgh is struggling to replace aging players......

Giants guy should be the back-up....

I want to retract my quote on the Bears GM Angelo.  I looked at his drafts - downright awful. This should not be the guy.

It looks like Gamble blew it.  You never know, but it sure sounds that way.

He doesn't seem to be knocking the socks off anyone else though.

I went with Popp.  To be that successful with one organization and really dig and search for talent has turned my head.  I think he has a plan that is worth taking a risk at.

Some of the best GMs are also the youngest.
Who says you have to have a grey beard to draft toddlers for the NFL?
The son of Wolf, Eliot Wolf, is getting to a point where he should be almost up to speed on how to be a GM.
Plus you get Big Bad Pappa Wolf as an unpaid consultant as soon as he's finished picking SD's new GM and HC.

The NFL is all about bloodlines these days, it seems.
GM bloodlines don't come with much stronger DNA than Wolfblood.
Ron Wolf was the architect of the 1976, 1980, & 1983 Raiders SB Champion teams. ('63-'75 & '78-'90.)
He helped lift Tampa Bay ('76-'77) from a 2 wins in 2 years team to a 1979 NFCC contender, before returning to the Raiders in 1978.
Returned the Packers to relevance after 24 years in the wasteland known as "The Dark Years" & put them in back-to-back Super Bowls in '96 & '97.

That's 3 rings and should be 4, (for the '76 Raiders SB XI) - MAYBE a fifth one for SB XXXII, if Holmgren hadn't had his head up his arse thinking about his new gig in Seattle, against Elway in '97.

What MORE could you ask from a GM bloodline? noidea
Son of Wolf - it's his time.
(You can find him in GB these days, picking players for the 2010 SB Champs, where he's worked on and off since he was 14.)

My vote went to the gentleman from the Steelers just look at the players they find in later rounds Antonio Brown, Harrison  etc . I really think that organzation evaluates talent better than anyone in football and if I could get somebody that has been in there warroom I am all for it
