Default This how you don't get a job in NFL

Someone needs to tell old Ted Sundquist, that NFL ownership don't you like talking about what happens in the interviews.

http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...sundquist-says

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 was divisive and hard on the locker room, and they wanted an exit strategy," Sundquist told ESPNNewYork.com, sharing the vibe he received from Johnson and Glat.

He must have been told no already. He hasn't been seriously considered in more than half a decade.

I tend to think the media just created this story... how can someone be stupid enough to reveal sensitive info they were told in an interview? The media makes up a couple new stories every day relating to Tebow.

I read this, and couldn't believe that someone who is smart enough to get an interview as an NFL GM would be dumb enough to do this. What the hell is he thinking?
