Being a fan I've seen my fair share of bad GMs, I like to go on record and say that Mike Tannenbaum is not on that list.
Never a dull offseason with mike tannenbaum
yeah, because Mike Tannenbaum doesn't have a history of destroying a teams salary cap. Look up his time with the Jets, smart guy.
Mike Tannenbaum must have really blown it with Jordan Phillips if the Phins are looking for a defensive tackle already. Smdh...

Ferguson was Pick 1 of the Tannenbaum/Mangini regime. Mike T decided to take a LT (and not a QB) in '06, b/c Jason Taylor killed NYJ in '05.
Fun fact: Mike tannenbaum drafted both Ferguson and Mangold in the first round of the 2006 draft. What a draft. Ten years of solid lineplay
It just dawned on me that Colangelo just did to Hinkie what Mike Tannenbaum did to Dennis Hickey.

with Mike Tannenbaum leading the way it'll scare off all big name coaches.
The Dolphins are a mess right now, but at least they have Mike Tannenbaum to right the ship. Oh.
Nobody creates positive media coverage in the face of abject failure (in 2 cities!) like Mike Tannenbaum
Mike Tannenbaum and Dennis Hickie get them bums the fock outta here!
So then keep everyone else out of the room.RT Mike Tannenbaum’s hires have actually been pretty good
Mike Tannenbaum's hires have actually been pretty good
So you think mike Tannenbaum would of gotten us Jarvis Landry? I think not. It's time to let Hickey make some decisions. That Baum gotta go.
Only Mike Tannenbaum can make & fans agree , I'm so thankful he'll be making our Division that much easier for years to come
Dolphins getting everything they deserve with Mike Tannenbaum. Top heavy roster moving in a rudderless direction.

Report: Exec VP of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum to lead charge in HC search
as a Dolphin fan it makes me so sad that Mike Tannenbaum is calling the shots. No matter who the coach is this wont end well

If you think Tom Garfinkel, Mike Tannenbaum and Dawn Aponte are the reasons why this franchise is a mess, I've got a bridge to sell you.
It's crazy how sold on Mike Tannenbaum some of you are.
Report: Mike Tannenbaum to lead the charge in finding a new HC
Nearly 80% of people feel uncomfortable discussing salary. Here's how to get what you want:
Bleacher Report is saying that Mike Tannenbaum will be "point man" in Dolphins head coaching search.
Mike Tannenbaum is connected and a salesman. All I got for you
Mike Tannenbaum is supposed to be an NFL expert. He destroyed the Jets & took Phins to a new low in '15. Trust him?
this franchise is doomed. Mike Tannenbaum can destroy a franchise like nobody else can.
hate to say it Phins fans but as long as Mike Tannenbaum is leading HC search this team is FINISHED
I trust Tom Garfinkel more than Mike Tannenbaum to make a good HC hire for And Marino should be involved.
Dolphins HC search will be done by Stephen Ross, Matt Higgins, Mike Tannenbaum, Dawn Aponte, Tom Garfinkel» Doomed to fail
Mike Tannenbaum, who will be the point man on the coach search, may have surprises. He's confident in ability to ID little known talent.
Would LOVE the hire. There will be a ton of competition for him. Remember Mike Tannenbaum was his agent.
What will Mike Tannenbaum bring to the Miami Dolphins? Let's look at his past. Shall we?
...are players Mike Tannenbaum picked/signed. 7 of those are on defense.

I'm a better GM than Mike Tannenbaum call me (804) 9089998
a "non terrible" pick to quote Mike Tannenbaum... unfortunately he said that about John Conner
if Mike Tannenbaum was still with the Jets, he'd given Ryan Fitzpatrick a contract extension today.
Im all about hiring Mike Shula as the Head Coach of the but with Mike Tannenbaum running the show I doubt it happens.
Good news: Dolphins loss helps them get a high pick. Bad news: Mike Tannenbaum will likely be making that pick.
What do Mark Sanchez and Ryan Tannehill each have in common? Dolphins GM Mike Tannenbaum signed each of them to huge contract extensions..
And I also have ZERO confidence in Mike Tannenbaum running this organization.
Can the Dolphins be successful with Mike Tannenbaum around?
Mike Tannenbaum is gonna be trusted to build the Dolphins moving forward.
Which is why he hired Mike Tannenbaum. Now he needs to let him do his job.
Mike Tannenbaum has the perfect built-in excuse too... Hickey calls the shots on the roster, "on paper" anyways.
are so 4 any identity that they embraced Rex Ryan/Mike Tannenbaum class
Mike Tannenbaum scares me so much. I fear he'll have to hire Mangini.
"Dolphins vice president Mike Tannenbaum, who was hired in January, is just about the only person who is completely safe.". Oh my god
Know Mike Tannenbaum loves his tremch guys, but man, Miami's back-7 badly needs an infusal of talent/athleticism
Frankly it doesn't matter what the Dolphins do in regards with their next head coach. With Stephen Ross and Mike Tannenbaum making
Maybe Dan Henning or Mike Sherman will take the gig working with Tannenbaum

Dan Campbell said the decision to fire Bill Lazor "was 100% my decision" but added he talked to Steve Ross and Mike Tannenbaum,too.
Campbell: I talked to Mr.Ross, I talked to Mike Tannenbaum and this is it decision."
This season is a total loss. Tannenbaum knew it when he took the job. This year is on Ross. Going fwd, its on Mike T.
Steve Ross, Mike Tannenbaum and Matt Higgins on the war path down in Miami.
Mike Tannenbaum need to be fired too
This was a Mike Tannenbaum move. Stephen Ross not happy, needed scapegoat.
I trust Sean Payton to potentially build a winner here a lot more than Mike Tannenbaum
With Mike Tannenbaum running the show, I completely expect Miami to go after another big name free agent again.
Mike Tannenbaum has already mis-evaluated this team, as he felt it was smart to spend so much on one player with all the roster issues.
When Mike Tannenbaum said that this team is full of talent, was he setting up Philbin and his staff to fail?
How much faith do you have in Mike Tannenbaum to get the OL solidified?
if you people had a clue this would not be happening, congratulations on hiring Mike Tannenbaum!
Mike Tannenbaum is the type to trade the top-10 pick to for Peyton Manning.

Mike Tannenbaum had no interest in Mathis or even Lell Collins once he saw Jason Fox ready to fill in..great call!

Ex-Jets linebacker Quinton Coples claimed off waivers by Mike Tannenbaum's ...
One thing not to be thankful of? Mike Tannenbaum in charge of the franchise with absolutely NO qualifications (i.e. loser)
Rex Ryan was "upset" that Mike Tannenbaum swooped in and grabbed Quinton Coples before he could:
I am a big Mike Mayock fan but why do Browns hire TV guys all the time? I would prefer Mayock in Miami than loser Mike Tannenbaum
Rex Ryan on Quinton Coples: “I wanted him.” Says he was upset that Mike Tannenbaum claimed him.
Rex Ryan "a little upset" that Dolphins GM Mike Tannenbaum claimed Quinton Coples off waivers; wanted to sign him

Mike Tannenbaum is a gambler. Hickey and Philbin are "on the ropes". I'm not saying it's right or wrong. But I could see it.
I love for them to trade up. Mike Tannenbaum is being aggressive. Love it!
Yea, and Mike T probably likes him as well. Tannenbaum wants stars. I wouldn't rule out Gordon either. I know they like him

One of the best things about owning a business is that the owner can’t be fired. Sometimes, however, he should be. When it comes to the Jets, owner Woody Johnson deserves much of the blame for the mess that culminated in Monday’s house cleaning. By firing G.M. Mike Tannenbaum two years ago but ins…
The New York Jets fired coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik on Monday after one of the most disappointing seasons in franchise history. With the Jets (4-12) failing to make the postseason for the fourth straight season, Team owner Woody Johnson opted to start fresh with a new coach and GM. Ryan was 50-52, including 4-2 in the postseason in his six seasons with the Jets. His first few years were filled with guarantees, bold statements and two consecutive trips to the AFC title game. But in the end, there were not enough wins to back up all the big talk. Idzik lasted just two seasons after replacing the fired Mike Tannenbaum in 2013. He was heavily criticized this year for questionable decisions in the NFL draft and in free agency. Now, the Jets will be looking for a general manager and coach for the first time since Johnson promoted Tannenbaum and hired Eric Mangini in 2006. Former NFL GM and current NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly is expected to be brought in by Johnson as a consultant to h ...

Ok I'm not saying I miss trader Mike Tannenbaum but I did love the crazy spending spree that brought me much joy only to give me hope and ruin our salary cap. I can't help but feeling like we missed out on Maclin or Pitta. Drafting is best policy long term. I know this I just have to change my mindset that I have had for many many years.

What We Learned from the NFL's 2013 Regular Season 12. Rex Ryan Is A *** Good Football Coach Last offseason, many (including yours truly) were critical of the New York Jets' decision to bring back coach Rex Ryan after firing general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Many (including yours truly) were appalled by Ryan's decision to insert quarterback Mark Sanchez into the fourth quarter of a meaningless preseason game, leading to Sanchez sustaining a shoulder injury that would keep him out for the entire season. Many (including yours truly) looked at the 53-man roster and assumed that Ryan could lead Gang Green to no more than three or four wins and eventually lose his job at season's end. Well, we were all wrong. And that includes yours truly. The job that Ryan did in piloting this atrocious Jets team to an 8-8 record was nothing short of miraculous. Go ahead and check out the team's depth chart. Their dearth of talent is nothing short of stunning. And yet Ryan got this ragtag group to overachieve beyond many of o ...

If the fire GM Jeff Ireland, a few names rumored to be replacements are Eric Mangini, Mike Tannenbaum, Scott Pioli, & Brian Gaine.
In the weeks leading up the 2006 NFL draft, with fans and media debating what Houston should do with the first overall pick, then-Texans general manager Charley Casserly placed a call to Mike Tannenbaum, the New York Jets' new general manager at the time. Casserly was preparing to make a critical selection for a floundering franchise and wanted to explore the possibility of a trade. But when Casserly asked Tannenbaum what he was willing to give up for the pick, he was struck by the reply. "I think you've got it backwards, Charley," Tannenbaum said. "I'm wondering what you'll give me to take that pick off your hands." Casserly can chuckle about that moment today because he no longer has to fret over the difficult decision of deciding on the first pick in the draft. He can relate to the general manager who will find himself in the position next spring to make a choice similar to the one he faced seven years ago. Casserly ultimately chose defensive end Mario Williams over running back Reggie Bush. In May, an ...
Perhaps it has gone a tad underappreciated, but the sea change in NFL front offices the past two years has been almost staggering.

'On Path to the Draft,' Mike Tannenbaum: Former Alabama C Barrett Jones would be a good fit for the Green Bay Packers in the later rounds.
Mike Tannenbaum just said on the NFL Network "I would rather have the lineman than a WR in Wallace." Really? Didn't show that w/the NYJ.
Does Rex Ryan Really Have All the Power with the New York Jets? The Jets always do things a little bit different, don’t they? Most teams hire a general manager, and then a coach. Not the Jets. They change general managers, but making keeping the coach a CONDITION of employment. Pretty weird, huh? Backwards. That’s just how our team acts. But, there is one thing going on with the Jets that is not backwards. There is a perception out there about the Jets’ power structure that needs to be brought back to Earth. It’s a perception of how things work with the New York Jets that absolutely isn’t true. The perception, started most strongly by Mike Francesa here in New York but stated by other parties as well, is that Rex Ryan holds all the power inside the Jets’ headquarters. The perception is, and was before John Idzik was hired, that any player that Rex Ryan wants, Rex Ryan gets. It’s the idea that the general manager, either Mike Tannenbaum before or John Idzik now, is a figure-head, with no real ...
Good insight from former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum about when a player like Mathieu goes from liability to opportunity. His take: 4th round
The fact the Jets want to restructure Santonio Holmes's contract is another example that former GM Mike Tannenbaum was an overrated cap guru

Mike Tannenbaum saying on NFL Network that the draft room was split on Melvin Ingram. They weren't sure about him. Obviously why they passed
Nothing says "expert analysis" like Eric Mangini and Mike Tannenbaum.
The cap-strapped New York Jets began their anticipated salary dump Tuesday, releasing linebacker Bart Scott and three other veterans. In other expected moves, the Jets also cut linebacker Calvin Pace, safety Eric Smith and tackle Jason Smith. Just like that, the Jets created $30.7 million in cap relief. It puts them about $5.7 million under the cap. This starts what figures to be a tumultuous offseason under new general manager John Idzik, although his predecessor, Mike Tannenbaum, was planning to make the same four cuts. This won't impact Darrelle Revis' situation. The Jets had to make these moves simply to get under the cap by the start of the league year, March 12. They also waived injured tight end Josh Baker. "Every one of these players was a major contributor to our football team," coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday. "I was very impressed with Jason this past season while Bart, Calvin and Eric have been an instrumental part of our defense for the past four years." Scott wasn't included in the Jets' initial ...

Why is Mike Tannenbaum's view on QBs making news? This is the man that traded up for Mark Sanchez, and then traded for Tim Tebow...
The New York Jets and general manager Mike Tannenbaum thought they had their quarterback of the future last March, so the team offered Mark Sanchez an extension, making his contract worth more than $58 million over five years. Former GM Mike Tannenbaum said Thursday that he now regrets the decision.
Btw Kate Upton is nearly as overexposed as Mike Tannenbaum these days. Nearly.
Former NY Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum says he had no plans to ... - New York Daily News
New York Jets: Drafting Mark Sanchez in 2009 Was Clearly the Right Move As the New York Jets face a crossroads in their franchise history while they determine the future of their quarterback, head coach and general manager, let's take a time machine back to a happier place. We don't have to go back far, just about three-and-a-half years ago to April of 2009. Jets fans were tired of the bumbling game-management issues of the Herman Edwards era and the staid secrecy and lifelessness that marked Eric Mangini's years. NFL fans across the country couldn't care less whether the Jets won or lost. They didn't know who Mike Tannenbaum or Woody Johnson were. What they knew about the Jets was that Edwards gave funny press conferences and Mangini once appeared on The Sopranos. The team had some successful regular seasons but had won just two playoff games during the decade. During that time, the team bounced from Vinny Testaverde to Chad Pennington as their main quarterbacks with one forgetful season with Brooks Bo . ...

ESPN Video: Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith discuss whether Mike Tannenbaum is to blame for how badly things worked out with Tim Tebow.
Former Jet LaDainian Tomlinson, whose favorite pastime is criticizing his former team, ripped former GM Mike Tannenbaum for the Jets' current salary-cap plight, pointing to the Mark Sanchez contract extension as a major blunder. "That was Tannenbaum's fault," Tomlinson, an NFL Network analyst, told the New York Post at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. "They're still trying to fix what Tannenbaum messed up." Tomlinson, who played 2010 and 2011 with Sanchez, said "they're stuck" with the embattled quarterback because of his hefty contract. He also doesn't believe the Jets when they say they're planning to bring in competition at the position. "They said that last year," Tomlinson told the newspaper. "They brought Tim Tebow in and it wasn't much of a competition because (Tony) Sparano didn't know what to do with Tim Tebow. I just think they're in a situation where they have to stick with Sanchez." Tomlinson believes it would be a mistake to trade Darrelle Revis, but he thinks that could happen because "Rex R ...

Cro gives Idzik marching orders: ‘Get Mark some help’ By POST STAFF REPORT Last Updated: 4:50 AM, January 26, 2013 It was not Mark Sanchez, it was the talent around him. At the Pro Bowl, Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie defended the beleaguered quarterback while taking an indirect shot at recently fired general manager Mike Tannenbaum. “He needs a better supporting cast,” Cromartie, the Jets’ lone Pro Bowler, told from Hawaii. “That’s something the new GM has to look at and evaluate as he’s looking at the roster. He needs to get Mark some help.” The Jets’ offense was a mess last season, ranking 30th in the league, with Sanchez throwing 18 interceptions compared with 13 touchdowns. Sanchez was benched for a Week 16 loss against the Chargers, but started the season finale after Greg McElroy suffered a concussion against San Diego. He also had to deal with an unheralded receiving corps that lost its only established target when Santonio Holmes tore ligaments in his foot in Week 4 ...
KAPOLEI, Hawaii -- With lots of news swirling around the possibility of the New York Jets trading All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis, the team's ever-controversial quarterback situation has been knocked off the New York tabloids' back pages. Jones: Gang Green's problem solver Kimberly Jones says new general manager John Idzik appears to be the perfect man to rein in the wayward Jets. More ... But it's just as relevant. And the lone member of the Jets in Hawaii this week for the Pro Bowl believes the solution already exists on the roster. More importantly, cornerback Antonio Cromartie insinuates, a change at general manager should be the impetus for improvement. Cromartie -- without mentioning Mike Tannenbaum's name -- threw the former Jets GM under the bus that Tannenbaum left town on earlier this month, saying the problems quarterback Mark Sanchez had in 2013 laid at the feet of Tannenbaum, not Sanchez. "We have confidence in Mark," Cromartie said Friday after the AFC's morning walk-through. "Like I've al ...
The New York Jets, fresh off an exhaustive hunt for new general manager John Idzik, will explore options to deal star corner Darrelle Revis this offseason, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Revis, whose contract voids after the 2014 season, is set to earn $6 million in 2013 (between salary and bonuses), and owner Woody Johnson has strong reservations about the ability to extend Revis's deal, the sources said. Johnson has expressed his desire to attempt to land value for Revis now, rather than risk losing him as an unrestricted free agent a year from now, most likely seeking as much draft-pick compensation for him as possible. The Jets are very much in transition mode, they have cap issues moving forward and are trying to embark on a rebuilding process after firing former long-time general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Revis, who missed almost all of last season after suffering a torn ACL, engaged in a long holdout in 2010 that resulted in a contract extension that was more of a Band-Aid tha ...
For Woody Johnson to smear Mike Tannenbaum about him wanting Tebow, that's not right. It's wrong. It's out of line.
The perception of the New York Jets' trade for Tim Tebow has been that it was the brainchild of owner Woody Johnson, but that's not how it was presented to at least one general manager candidate in his interview with the team. Former Broncos GM Ted Sundquist, who interviewed for the job nine days ago, said Johnson told him it wasn't his idea. Sundquist said it was his impression that the trade was "forced" on Johnson and team president Neil Glat, who also participated in the interview. Sundquist's description of the interview makes it sound as though Johnson was blaming former GM Mike Tannenbaum for the Tebow debacle; in a sense, Johnson did exactly that, firing Tannenbaum one day after the regular season ended. The Jets hired former Seahawks executive John Idzik as their new general manager last week. He will be introduced at a news conference Thursday. Johnson also said, according to Sundquist, that he eventually "jumped on board" with the Tebow idea, deferring to his football people. "They realized it ...
NYJ owner Woody Johnson took his time searching for a general manager to replace Mike Tannenbaum. At the end of this search, he decided to go with Seattle Seahawks’ front office executive John Idzik. This is an excellent hire that should pay off in the long run.
It seems like forever and a day ago when team owner Woody Johnson and head coach Rex Ryan held their season-ending press conference, driving home the point that this will be a “new beginning” for the New York Jets. Out went Mike Tannenbaum, Mike Westhoff, Tony Sparano and Matt Cavanaugh, while other...
Following the hire of new GM John Idzik, we explain why the assumption that he is a clone of Mike Tannenbaum is categorically incorrect. For the first time in a long time, it seems the Jets made the right decision. The Jets for once took their time, interviewing several qualified candidates. The result is the hiring of a man who is respected league wide, and who has been part of successful franchises for the past 20 years. Unfortunately as soon as the news broke, we heard several fans complain that Idzik was just another Mike Tannenbaum clone, that he was a business man and not a football man. This is based purely on the fact that Idzik enjoys a reputation as a salary cap guru, and expert contract negotiator. A title that was handed to Mike Tannenbaum during his time here, although it's hard to see why when you look at our cap situation. You can't continue to back-load contracts and not expect us to someday be in a poor situation. This opinion of Idzik being a clone of Mike Tannenbaum is completely misgui ...
Quick takeaways on the news that the Jets have decided to hire former Seattle Seahawks vice president of football administration John Idzik as their new general manager: 1. What they did: The Jets veered off course. They set out trying to find a GM with deep roots in scouting and personnel, but they chose a longtime executive who made his bones on the business side, dealing mostly with salary-cap management and contract negotiations. The Jets will present Idzik as a hybrid -- he attended personnel meetings in Seattle -- but that's not his area of expertise. Like former GM Mike Tannenbaum, he's a capologist making the crossover. They needed a leader who sees the world from a scout's perspective, not an executive who learned his football in a room. 2. Narrow view: This was a shortsighted decision. Owner Woody Johnson wanted someone to clean up the messy cap situation ($19.4 million over) and the number of bloated contracts. The real problem is a thin roster. One of the candidates told me the Jets need to re ...

Jets Offense - TM - Jets Jets hired former Seahawks VP of Football Administration John Idzik as general manager. Although Idzik dabbled in personnel evaluation under John Schneider and Pete Carroll in Seattle, his primary strength was salary-cap management, similar to old Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum. The Idzik hire means coach Rex Ryan should have almost complete control over the Jets' roster, which will be viewed in many circles as a risky proposition. Ryan is a football coach, not a scout. And Idzik isn't a scout, either. The Jets' roster has deteriorated so suddenly over the past 3-4 seasons because they've struggled mightily with player evaluation. Complete head scratcher, but I wouldn't expect anything less from the Jets.
John Idzik named Jets new gm and former Philadelphia Eagle's offensive coordinator Marty Morninwegh named new Jets Offensive Coordinator? Ya ask me anything is an upgrade from Mike Tannenbaum and Tony Sparano.
So the Jets hire John Idzik from the Seahawks organization as their new GM. His background is salary caps and contracts; he has no experience in personnel They just fired Mike Tannenbaum as GM, and he had the same credentials. This means Rex Ryan will be picking the players and Idzik's job will be to clean up the cap... But aren't they in this lousy cap situation BECAUSE they (meaning Ryan) are lousy at talent evaluation? Why didn't they just stop acting like they are smarter than everyone and just make Ryan the GM also? Fellow Jets fans, please spare me the 'let's give Idzik a chance ' nonsense. Anyone who took this job without final personnel say and the right to pick their own coach is just Woody Johnson's puppet. He is a clueless owner and this organization is a joke. Oh well, get ready for the 45th (and 46...47...48th...and so on) without a championship.
Jets to hire Seahawks' exec, John Idzik as GM. A Mike Tannenbaum clone
If this is the choice I think the last sentence of this report sums up what's wrong with the Jets. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Idzik has overtaken in-house candidate Scott Cohen and Pittsburgh's Omar Khan as the "clear frontrunner" to replace Mike Tannenbaum in New York. Schefter reports Idzik could be offered the job "as early as tonight." Idzik's title with Seattle is "VP of Football Administration." He has little to no background as an evaluator of personnel and talent.
The next General Manager of the New York Jets will immediately face a highly scrutinized press conference, where he will answer to a group of bitter beat writers and angry,anxious fans. In hopes of him succeeding and seeing our generally miserable fan-base have something to be happy about, I have prepared the following suggested comments for his first press conference - (Walk out wearing a Jets polo shirt, holding a clipboard filled with player evaluation notes, with a stop-watch around your neck and a visor on. Jets fans permanently hate “accountants or bean-counters” after Mike Tannenbaum the past few years. The worst possible thing you could do is come out wearing glasses, holding a calculator and use the word “process” more than once. So make yourself look like a coach or “A REAL FOOTBALL GUY”) “Hello. Let me begin by asking Manish Mehta, Gary Myers or anybody from The Daily News to leave the room. You are banned from the building this season. Is this fully legal? I don’t know. But you ...
