One thing that hurts the Jets a little with some candidates Dan Leberfeld

Don’t get me wrong, the Jets should be able to land quality individuals for their GM and head coaching spots, but some candidates are going to say, “Thanks, but no thanks.”

Obviously there are myriad reasons for candidates to not be interested, but one is obvious – the media scene.

The Jets play in the #1 media market in the United States, so with that comes an enormous press corps.

But aside from the sheer numbers that come with this market, the Jets’ media landscape presents an even more difficult challenge than other teams in the New York market, like the Giants, or some organizations in other sports.

Due to the competitiveness of the beat, the team’s eclectic history, the Jets-Giants complex and so forth, the media scene around this team can often resemble a three-ring circus.

And there is no question, some candidates won’t want to deal with it.

There is no way around that.

How John Idzik was chewed up and spit out by the press over his two tumultuous seasons with the Jets, isn’t lost on the candidates

Like I said, there should be quality candidates who are willing to take the challenge.

But don’t kid yourself.

Some will want nothing to do with this media scene.
