The wait is a long one...especially now since they have stated they have their guy....so now, you have to close him and get him to sign on the ****ing dotted line. Enough is enough already.
If in fact the Jets offer Idzk the job, the only way he turns it down is if Seattle offers him more money and he still has an out to get a GM gig somewhere else next year and beyond.
But if it is, and I suspect this one actually is, it's still not as simple as something that can come together in 15 minutes. There's still a contract that needs to be worked out. I's to dot, T's to cross.
My guess is something will be announced tonight, just have some ****ing patience.
Jets are very media savvy and could easily have pushed off finalizing the deal until today so as to avoid conflicting with the Mantei/Armstsrong stories.
@JedHughesKF: 2012-13 NFL Playoff TV ratings predictably huge, but not up. http://t.co/Cm25yaDX
The guy came over here to Scotland once for a job. He has worked in just about all corners of the US. I don't think the prospect of moving from West Coast to East Coast for a big promotion and the chance to run his own team is going to freak him out too much.
Idzik and his lawyers are probably getting in his contract that he has final say on all personnel decisions. They are probably putting that on every page in 48 bolded font
I hate to defend our management clowns, but they never claimed to be announcing a GM by a certain date. All we are going on is speculation from media people that have shown to be wrong several times in this process.
The media reports have continuously contradicted one another. Not only that, but they throw their negative spin on everything. Hilariously they quote each other as sources. It's irresponsible reporting to say the least.

Woody Johnson's private jet is currently enroute to Everett, WA, which is about 30 minutes from Seattle. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/EJM826 …
