Jets podcast: Thoughts on the GM search

NFL: New York Jets at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The search for a general manager is going to kick into gear for the Jets over the next few days as the interview process gets going. There are currently four candidates being considered for the job now that George Paton of the Vikings has withdrawn his name from consideration. We could still see an extra name or two added to the search before the process is done.

On today’s podcast I will discuss how I view the search for Mike Maccagnan’s replacement. My feelings are different from those of many others. While I think Joe Douglas is a solid candidate, I don’t think he’s the only viable option. I believe all of the candidates are credible, and any hire should be met with an open mind. I also don’t believe in looking solely at the success of the teams these candidates would depart as the method by which to judge them. These and other thoughts will be the focus of today’s show.

Thanks for listening.
