John Idzik's Patience is Killing Me!!!
I know John Idzik is doing the right things: Signing free agents who are willing to accept reasonable deals now, waiting for the price to come down on the others, holding out for an offer for Revis that is good enough. It's a smart approach, and it gives me hope that Idzik may be the man to turn things around here.
On the other hand, as a fan he's killing me.
It's been a while since we signed Goodson, Garay, and Colon (moves I liked, by the way). I keep checking, multiple times a day, to see what JI's next move will be. Did we finally sign Dawan Landry? Or Kevin Kolb? Or someone else who will fill a hole, or provide competition at a weak position in our lineup? Have we finally gotten a 2013 first-rounder and 2014 high-rounder for Revis?
Instead, all I find are the following: Kellen Davis signs with the Browns. The Giants re-sign Kevin Boothe. Heyward-Bey is visiting the Colts. Victor Butler is visiting the Browns and Eagles. These aren't household names to begin with, but in this "diamond in the rough" mode we're in, these are actually players I wanted to see join our team.
Where have you gone, John Idzik? Jets Nation turns it's lonely eyes to you!
I guess the good news is, if Idzik's patience is driving me crazy, just imagine what it's doing to the Bucs, Revis, and Revis's agents.
for once the jets seem to have a game plan in place.................
instead of just making additions for you sexy players people out there sake. who will be asking for their heads later in the year. or picking up some one to make headlines or to out shine the other local team. they seem to have a strategy, like not over paying for anyone, building thru the draft my favorite, not panicking and letting the fa market come to them, similar to what bill belichek and new England does. only going after street fa so as to get high comp picks that you guys wonder why we never get each year, also like new England does. being patient may pay off for them this year and it will hopefully start a new trend in new York that will pay off in the long run, like building thru the draft, not over paying for big ticket fa, put being able to plug anyone into your system once you have it going right. all of that takes time and the right person to began. one thing I would do to save money if I was a owner is fire all the cheerleaders. that seems to be a waste of money to me...............
