A good Jets team with little noise or distraction doesn't sell papers or get website views. Tattoos, clown car graphics on the back page, a manufactured "mess of a GM search"....that stuff helps the local dooshes sell their tabloids. Simple as that.
The GM hire was a good one IMO. Idzik is talented, well-respected, and a winner in the NFL.
I guess the editors and writers at the local paper sat around and said, "time to write a story that this new Jets GM. Solid guy, Dartmouth, grew up playing and coaching, helped build winning teams around the NFL....hmmmm....how about we say this guy doesn't know football???"
