There is no conspiracy here people. Nobody is out to get the Jets. If anything, the media has been more than patient especially in light of all of Rex Ryan's antics over the past three seasons.
The narrative exists because the candidate that we are focusing on is simply not a pro player personnel guy. The record speaks for itself, it's been over 10 years since this guy was intimately involved in understanding college talent and picking players. The Seahawks have a GM, that's his job. This guy was making sure that contracts were being signed, the cap was under control, the office staff bought enough Windex, that the charter jet was booked, and that the toilet paper was stocked properly in the bathrooms.
Our owner is going in a bizarre direction. It is perfectly normal for fans and the media to call that out. You guys are living in a dream world where everything is everybody's fault except Rex Ryan. Next year, you'll be singing a different tune.
I got to take issue with everything you just typed. Explain to me the media patience in regards to Rex Ryan's antics over the past few seasons. There has never been a more media friendly head coach than Rex Ryan. When Eric Mangini was the head coach. He treated the media like they were the enemy. Rex treats the media like they are his friends and look at what he gets in return, enemy treatment. What are the antics you are implying? Dressing up like his brother? Is it the tatoo of his wife?
John Idzik has been involved in all personnel decisions. Just go look at the facts and then come back to me. Use some windex on your computer screen when you are reading next time.
How is Woody's direction bizarre exactly?. Was it hiring KornFerry who hired Seattle's current GM? Was that the bizarre direction that you speak of?
As for Rex, Everyone knows that this is a make or break year for him. If the Jets are a failure in 2013. He will not be the head coach in 2014. He knows it, every fan knows it and the whole Jets organization knows it. There are no different tunes but I will tell you who plays the same tune over and over and over again. That would be you. I don't mind someone who is cynical or takes a negative stance or viewpoint but it's all that you can or ever do. So it's hard to give you any credit or respect because you all do is sing the same old tune. That's all you bring to the table.
