Jets will not change Tannenbaums draft staff.
Idzik told he makes the Rex Ryan decision next season, has authority to fire him.
I know many people don't but I tend to trust Fatty's sauces.
1. Fair point but I don't think anyone gets to pick a player unless they are an owner, HC or GM. So take that FWIW.
2. Is this true? Did he interview anywhere else? This would be a legit knock if true. Would make me think K/F went through their rolodex to make sure the Jets got someone.
3. It was reported that Polian sat in on some interviews. Not sure how many b.c he was at the ESPN "Senior Bowl" this past week. Either way it doesn't bother me b.c I have little faith in our "football people" anyways. Could be a good thing that they weren't involved.
4. I am OK with Bradway staying on as a scout. I would be hugely disappointed if we didn't change a lot of the staff. Makes me think Idzik has no relationship with personnel people of his own. Not a good thing.
5. Glad to hear it. Ryan is as good as gone.
