Because you're just wrong?
Now whats your point, other than you don't have a clue about the Jets cap situation and posted something that was wrong. But hey, argue from another angle. You said they're in cap hell. They're easily under now and will be 30+ mil under next year. So yeah, try again.
this is just another non issue. it's too bad garrard couldn't make it out of training camp but he was just there to push sanchez. maybe cimini would rather bring back brunnel. as for the rb. how stupid can these players get. good riddance.
So he is forced to retire and people are already knocking Idzik? When he was first signed it was deemed a calculated risk. Why? BEcause we all knew that Garard was an injury risk.
Trolls like SAR are coming out of the closet (ahem) and acting as if the Jets signed Garard without recognizing the injury risk when the Jets knew all along that this was a possibility. if the Jets had given up a 2nd round pick to get a Garard THEN it would be a blemish, but to waste a few hundred grand on a "possible" starting QB that doesn't pan out is a complete non-issue.
We are getting everyone's leftovers. That's what happens when you rebuild while retaining the head coach who got you into the mess to begin with. They don't call it "lame duck" for nothing. Every coordinator and coach on this team is 70/30 out the door next year, just collecting a paycheck this year, the new HC will want to bring in his own guys.
Nothing is changing here. Idzik, no different than the rest of the circus. Should be a week about the Knicks and Rangers, nice and quiet about the Jets. But no, we have a free agent signing on a drug and weapons charge and our owner quoting DC Comics.
I keep saying "you can't make this up". But we're the Jets. It's what they do.
And what did I say that was wrong? and when did I say they were in cap hell, please find a post. I follow jason's site all the time. Who cares if the jets are under the cap- the point about the jets cap situation was that they were losing starting players and did not have the funds in the last two years to improve themselves in FA at the positions that they lost players.
My point is no one thought of Goodson as a Jag when the jets signed him to the most money that they gave any FA this year.
Excuse my for interrupting the circus music ...
Idzik's pace is often a slower one than others would like, but it leads to confidence in his decisions. To him, they're the right ones because he's made sure they're right.
"He's going to do what's best for the club, period," said Seahawks GM John Schneider, who advocated for Idzik during the Jets' hiring process. "He's not going to get bullied or pushed around, whether it's media influence or whatever."
Perhaps a GM who didn't know Idzik would've bailed when the Revis negotiations sputtered for nearly three months while Idzik waited for the best deal possible.
Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik sat five feet from Idzik when both worked under former Tampa Bay GM Rich McKay. He declined to discuss specifics of the Revis trade negotiations, but Dominik surely knew how deliberate Idzik would be.
What could've been done in February was instead completed at nearly the latest possible point: Revis to the Bucs for a first-round pick this year (No. 13 overall, which Idzik used to select Missouri defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson) and a conditional pick next year.
Just as he did with the release of Tebow, which happened after an exhaustive search uncovered no takers before, during and after the draft, Idzik took his time.
"There's a purpose behind everything he was doing," Dominik said. "John's a very deep thinker. He's trying to play it like chess, like we all do. You can't just live the moment today, you have to look down the road one — two, three years. That's the hardest part of being a GM."
Very happy with Idzik so far :yes:
It is unfortunate for Idzik that the Jets have openly courted controversy and derision in equal measure before he arrived.
The media have their narrative, and outside of winning some games there is very little he can do to silence them.
Water off a ducks back I am sure.
