    This will be Idzik's 2nd interview. Angelo, Khan, Cohen and Gaine also have drawn follow-up interest from #Jets. Idzik, Khan are cap guys.
    Well we heard last night that Angelo is probably out.

    IIRC, La Confora was mentioning who was coming in for 2nd interviews beginning today. He didn't mention Angelo but supposedly Angelo already had his 2nd

    Idzik is an interesting candidate because he has a varied background in his career. He has been a coach at the collegiate level, worked in the personnel department and managed the cap. He is Ivy League educated and would IMO be a solid choice for the Jets.

    John Idzik begins his sixth season with the Seahawks after joining the club on February 16, 2007. With Seattle, Idzik oversees player negotiations, the team’s compliance with the NFL salary cap, player personnel transactions, all football operations budgets, staff and team contracts, team travel and most aspects of the day-to-day football operations while also remaining active in player evaluations. In addition, he serves as the club’s primary liaison to the NFL Office and represents the club at League meetings.

    Prior to joining the Seahawks, Idzik spent three seasons as Senior Director of Football Operations for the Arizona Cardinals, helping to build an eventual NFC champion. Idzik entered the NFL in 1993 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He spent 11 years with the Buccaneers, first as a Pro Personnel Assistant and then was elevated to Director of Football Administration in 1996 and Assistant General Manager in 2001. Prior to his tenure with the Buccaneers, Idzik spent the 1991-92 seasons as a graduate assistant coach at Duke University, where he assisted with the offensive line and running backs. In 1990 he was the offensive backfield coach for the Aberdeen Oilers (Scotland) of the British American Football League. Idzik’s first coaching assignment came in 1982 as receivers coach at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

    Raised in a football family, Idzik’s father, also John, was the head coach of the Aberdeen club after serving as an NFL assistant coach for the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Colts, Philadelphia Eagles, and N.Y. Jets. They became one of the NFL’s few father-son Super Bowl champions in 2003 when the younger Idzik’s Buccaneers won Super Bowl XXXVII, as his father was the offensive backfield coach of the Super Bowl V champion Baltimore Colts.

    A native of Detroit, Idzik graduated with magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa honors from Dartmouth College in 1982 earning a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, where he also played wide receiver for the Ivy League Champion Big Green. He later earned a master’s degree in liberal studies from Duke University in 1992.

    Idzik and his wife, Carol (a University of Georgia graduate), have two sons, Bryant (a senior and captain of the Formula SAE racing team at Western Washington University) and Bradley (a sophomore wide receiver at Wake Forest University), and a daughter, Holly (a senior at Mercer Island High School).

    Been told Rex Ryan was not in on first round of Jets' GM interviews. Not all together unusual, but worth noting considering coach's status.

    I'm so sick of hearing about guys that are "cap experts".

    It's not that complicated. Anyone with half a brain, some planning ability, and an Excel spreadsheet can manage the cap. What does that take? An hour out of an entire work week? If that?

    Teams that draft well don't stress out about the cap. There's enough room there to build a championship team. Someone does it every year, believe it or not. Only free agency ruins caps if you let it.

    If we hire another Tanny capologist, I'm out

Now Carroll is hinting that he wants a backup quarterback with a similar skill set to Wilson so there will be smooth transition should the starter go down. Flynn is a pure West Coast passer, not a mobile playmaker. "As we move forward we're going to figure it out. ... "It would be nice to have another guy that might be able to be a factor that way. There's some really good kids out there. We'll see."

    I like it. Get on the phone right now to sell Pete the concept.

    Guess we can forget the Boy Blunder reuniting with his college coach.

    Rex Ryan's absence in the room for the Jets GM interviews was certainly notable to candidates, but allowed them to speak more freely.

    Also, the Jets declined comment when asked about Rex's absence from the GM interviews.

    It sounds like he IS the GM. I wonder what the GM's duties are in Seattle.

    Regardless, that sounds like a pretty good resume. I'm in.

    Good luck fitting Sanchez and Flynn under the cap.
