Here’s some comments from a few columnists from Monday about Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum.
Tara Sullivan – The Record
“When you get an unexpected opportunity to add a player like Tim, you’ve got to take advantage of it,” Tannenbaum said after the trade, on a late-night conference call with reporters. “What we’ve become is a more diverse, dynamic offense.”
Halfway through the season, we have yet to see any on-field evidence of Tannenbaum’s claim.
Steve Politi – Star-Ledger
He can’t survive another season like this, not with the Jets showing no signs that 3-5 will become anything but 6-10 in a couple months. The GM might have built a team that reached back-to-back AFC title games in 2009 and 2010, but he’s also responsible for the paper thin roster now.
