What if he trades revis and gets back 2 draft picks that turn into pro bowlers, but the Jets never win a playoff game in his 5 year tenure? Is he still a success because he handled this ONE decision properly?
Not sure why everyone has to act like the stupid NY Media and make every decision into an apocalyptic moment in a persons life/career.
Can we sit back and let Idzik have a couple of drafts/offseasons before we grade his career?
Edit to add that Idzik inherited this awful situation from Mr. T. He didn't craft the contract allowing Revis to walk after this year. Tough to write off his career as a GM based on how he handles one bad contract that he inherited.
I see your point and I agree. The problem is, media, fans, everyone will continue to grade him out based on situations like these. That's just what they do. Not saying it's right, it's just what they do.
