Geez. Even Ira hates the move.
Geez. Even Ira hates the move.
hands. His disdain for the Jets is sickening. Turn him off.
The jets wont go on his show and have shut him out off all things jets so the only thing he does is spew garbage.
Ink isn't dry on the paper yet, and he's getting ripped.
I'll reserve judgement for about 2 years unless he does something really aggregious.
But you are already brainwashed by fatcessa to believe that Rex is in charge with ZERO proof, so there is no point in having a conversation with you.
Did Rex get a 5 year extension? Do you even know his contract status? he is a lame duck head coach that will need to win this year to stay. He had ZERO input in this decision and was just lucky he wasnt fired already. But keep thinking that Rex, with 1 year left on his deal, is somehow running this organization. Pathetic.
What has Idziks responsibilities been over the years?
Which players has he recommended to others involved in drafts? Or who not to draft?
Has he been involved?
How do you or Francessa know?
When he claimed that Rex used injuries as an excuse to save his butt, when he didn't say that.
When he said no one wants the Jets job this hire and then the rip job is reality?
sure, go cry somewher
Why whenever the Jets make a move does it seem like some clown without a clue and a handful of posts start whining about someone they dont have a clue about?
People are nuts if they think that Tanny and Idzik are the "same" Look at Tanny's work history and duties:

Tannenbaum signed a contract extension with the team through 2014.
Following the last game of the 2012 NFL regular season, Jets owner Woody Johnson announced that Tannenbaum would not return for the 2013 season.
Now look at the work history of Idzik:
John Idzik begins his sixth season with the Seahawks after joining the club on February 16, 2007. With Seattle, Idzik oversees player negotiations, the team’s compliance with the NFL salary cap, player personnel transactions, all football operations budgets, staff and team contracts, team travel and most aspects of the day-to-day football operations while also remaining active in player evaluations. In addition, he serves as the club’s primary liaison to the NFL Office and represents the club at League meetings.
Prior to joining the Seahawks, Idzik spent three seasons as Senior Director of Football Operations for the Arizona Cardinals, helping to build an eventual NFC champion. Idzik entered the NFL in 1993 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He spent 11 years with the Buccaneers, first as a Pro Personnel Assistant and then was elevated to Director of Football Administration in 1996 and Assistant General Manager in 2001. Prior to his tenure with the Buccaneers, Idzik spent the 1991-92 seasons as a graduate assistant coach at Duke University, where he assisted with the offensive line and running backs. In 1990 he was the offensive backfield coach for the Aberdeen Oilers (Scotland) of the British American Football League. Idzik’s first coaching assignment came in 1982 as receivers coach at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Raised in a football family, Idzik’s father, also John, was the head coach of the Aberdeen club after serving as an NFL assistant coach for the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Colts, Philadelphia Eagles, and N.Y. Jets. They became one of the NFL’s few father-son Super Bowl champions in 2003 when the younger Idzik’s Buccaneers won Super Bowl XXXVII, as his father was the offensive backfield coach of the Super Bowl V champion Baltimore Colts.
A native of Detroit, Idzik graduated with magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa honors from Dartmouth College in 1982 earning a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, where he also played wide receiver for the Ivy League Champion Big Green. He later earned a master’s degree in liberal studies from Duke University in 1992.
