    Cliff Notes:

    Jerry might be looking to hire a GM; however, he would give him a different title (consultant or advisor) because Jerry will never give up being the "GM".

    Nick Saban is reported to be burned out and being in his sixties, might want something with less stress.

    Garrett and Saban have a close relationship.

    Yes, that's it in a nutshell. Just some speculative connecting the dots.

    The name "Mike Holmgren" is flaoting around too. He and Jerry Jones are close. In Jerr's last interview he said how he will consuting with others outside the organization for direction. I'm sure Saban and Holmgren need to cehck their voice mail.

    Guys like Cowher, Saban, Gruden, and last year, Fisher, are not coming to Dallas unless they get control that at least matches what Parcells had.

    Nobody wants to come in and have to deal with Jerry the GM. The owner? yes.
    But not the GM.

    I just got very uncomfortable with all this speculation as it falls right in line with Jerry's way of thinking.

    Back when the rumor broke out that Jerry's private plane was spotted in Alabama is when all that ruckus started to happen.

    This is another speculation on my part, from info I read somewhere else, but here goes:

    Joe D might be replaced as the ST coach by Bobby Williams who is the ST coordinator at Alabama with Saban's crew.

    I can almost assure you (since I live here in Bama Nation) that Saban is NOT going anywhere for anything next year. He is currently under contract through 2017 and with the money he is making along with the cost of living here (can you say low property tax) there is NO WAY he is leaving.
    :cool:

    I couldn't even finish the OP because it was so ludicrous.

    What a garbage post.

    Jimmy (and staff) absolutely had an advantage in knowing collegiate talent coming out (since they had been recruiting them out of high school) when he took this job. He had Mike Irvin here ironically. He also had pick 1 overall which is pretty nice to have. Then he backed that up with another top overall drafting team ranking. Then when Jerry wouldn't pay Herschel Jimmy traded him for a mother lode.

    That has absolutely zero to do with anything except that his model of relying upon asst coaches to evaluate talent was terrible after a couple seasons. That is a system Jerry actually kept in place until BP got here.

    This post was completely non-sequitar. If you want a zillionth jimmy/jerry thread go start one.

    Sabin is a great collegiate coach. He is likely ALREADY one of Jerry's bevy of paid advisors.

    This is a non-story IMHO. Sabin isn't coming here in any real official role. And he has likely been advising Jerry for a couple seasons and is one of the reasons Jerry latched onto Redball when he did.
