He'll use this interview to get a raise from the Steelers. The Jets are a big MESS right now.

Khan is a cap wizard but kicking the can down the road to keep aging talent is not going to work for much longer

I would feel better if a good draft clearly happened. The 1998-2000 seasons were grim times but the 1998 (Faneca, Hines, Townsend) and 1999 (Porter, Aaron Smith) draft put down the foundation for later success.

he cant replace colbert (who is one of the best in the business just like kahn is).

they do 2 completely different jobs. colbert scouts and evaluates talent. kahn pushes paper and phones and is a money man negotiator.

I agree with that - hoping we already have someone though that can contribute in a big way like those names, someone that hasn't emerged yet out of the past couple of drafts.

care to point all the other longer tenured GMs/Director of pro personell/ Director of Operations with better track records?

maybe ozzie newsome comes close. scott piolli won 3 sb's but that was mostly luck with brady and having belichick calling the shots. patriots have been fine w/o him (mostly with free agents). pioli has sucked since.

who else? dimitrov?

former professionals and colleagues such as bill cowher, pat kirwan and gil brandt regard colbert as one of the best in the biz.

message board jockeys regard him as "average".
