Tony Dungy - who actually worked side by side with the man I might add - has said that Idzik knows talent. It has also been reported by numerous sources that Idzik has actively been involved in scouting the last couple of years and has went out on scouting trips which means he has to have been involved in player evaluation to some extent.
It's pretty obvious Idzik is a young bright up and coming football mind that is very well respected by those who know him and have worked with him. Idzik has also excelled at every position he has held within an NFL organization and is coming from a franchise where he was an integral part of rebuilding it & turning it around. His track record of success everywhere he has been is pretty well documented.
Still there are those who will criticize the man and the hire without Idzik having served one full day on the job.
So, my question is this...
What factual basis is there for anybody to think that John Idzik will not excel as general manager of the New York Jets?
Again, I am asking for facts here - not opinions, so, with that in mind, fire away......
SAR knows! He thinks its a return to mediocrity.
I think Sar is wrong! I like the hire of Idzik!
