I go back to this old movie title, because I wanted to talk about Mr. T, the guy we know as Mike Tannenbaum. It has been a life with Mikey, hasn’t it? It certainly feels like it. He has been the general manager since 2006, but it feels like it has been so much longer.

He gets some heat, and it is warranted. He did draft Vernon Gholston, and Vladimir Ducasse as well. He left the Jets with no depth at the offensive line last season, which left them in a bad position when Nick Mangold went down. I personally don’t think he gets enough heat for 2011, he has been given a bit of a pass, while guys like Schottenheimer and Sanchez get the blame.

In the end though, we have put our trust in Mike Tannenbaum for a lot of years. Most of them have been good.
