Jets Hire GM Joe Douglas

Recommended Posts

We should know who our new GM is shortly.... 

What are your hopes and dreams regarding the new GM.

Any mention of Mac will bring you great shame.

My hope is Douglas as GM, Kelly as Director of Player Personnel and Jeremiah as Director of College Scouting. Then I hope Douglas expands our analytics department to not only beef up its use for player acquisition but also to help coaches make decisions on gameday.

Interesting.  there is a reason why Champ Kelly was being set for Jets' final interview.  Kelly could join with Jets for either spot in front office.  GM or VPPP.

No matter who takes what job Jets are primed to be having vastly improved front office.

Sounds like we're all in agreement with the Douglas/Kelly pairing.  I love the idea of beefing up the analytical department as well.  If you are not at the front of this movement you are missing out.  Not sure how seriously the Jets take analytics but they should.

Douglas is my first choice but I'd honestly be happy with any of the 4 candidates interviewed.

I know we've all been high on Douglas but I'd be very happy with Fitterer.

I honestly don't see us attached to a name I wouldn't be happy with. Kelly is very interesting to me. I believe if the Bears would have made the FG and had a nice run, it would have made Kelly look better. From the outside, we really like guys who come from winning teams.

Think there will be another round of interviews next week?

Nope. I think they have an idea on who they’re hiring but will wait until after Mini Camp is completed.

 I remember a similar thing with Macc when he was hired. 

Douglas IMO should get a very sizable budget to build his staff.
