The Jets introduce their new general manager to the media today. Joe Douglas will hold his introductory press conference. The event is scheduled to start around 3:00 p.m. although these events have sometimes started late in the past. It will be Douglas’ chance to introduce himself to the fanbase and the media.
To be honest, this is one of the least important things he will ever do with the team. How he shapes the roster in the years ahead will matter much more than what he says today. These events are typically lacking in substance because the job is about action, not words.
However, we might hear a few interesting nuggets about Douglas’ philosophy and vision for the team that go beyond the typical, “Build through the Draft,” mantra that everybody says when they are first hired. Those might be worth hearing.
The GGN Twitter widget needs no introduction. It will provide updates below.
