WHERE IS THE POLL?
CAST YOUR VOTE ON THE IDZIK HIRE:
I'LL BET ITS 50-50 LOL
Gotta love the NY Post. Serby article in there today where they already interviewed Idzik's mom. Serby has got a brilliant, witty way about him. Also, the paper uncovered Captain Kangaroo was a Jet Fan and helped Idzik get into Dartmouth. Can't make this stuff up!!!
I am not a Gary Myers fan. In fact I can't stand him. But every once in a while he makes some sense. Like today:
Unless Idzik shakes up the Jets personnel department, the same people who were advising Mike Tannenbaum will be advising Idzik, and isn't how the Jets got in trouble in the first place? Johnson didn't do more than move around the furniture when he really needed a whole new dining room set.
Johnson decided to keep the same organizational model he had with Tannenbaum, which makes little sense. "Business as usual isn't good enough," an NFL source said.

Idzik hasn't even started yet. Let's give the guy a chance, for god's sake!
All the garbage I've read in the papers, online, and all the uninformed, obnoxious bluster I've heard on the radio has really pissed me off! Let's see what this guy does before we make any statements about organizational models or cap-guy, personnel-guy crap.
As for me, I'm excited and optimistic about the future. We'll see how it all plays out.
one person connected to Idzik told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that Idzik's football IQ is far better than he's being given credit for. "He builds things," the source said. "This is a great day for the Jets."
Again, instead of giving both sides of the discussion fair play for the readers/listeners to decide, we ram home the story line that we decide. In another thread I explained how the narrative was already being formed before Idzik was even hired. No amount of information about his background (like the 11 years he spend on the personnel side in Tampa Bay) was going to get in the way of the story lines.
We will have to wait until may but rest assured that if Idzik does the correct thing and puts his own staff together, the local media will barely acknowledge it. It will be lost in the start of the baseball season and Knicks run. So the perceptions that are created now will linger.
The Jets are a calamity after a 6-10 season? Two years removed from getting to the AFC title game two years in a row followed by an 8-8 season.......The Jets are NOT a calamity....they just have little talent.....some of you truly are caught up in the media hype with the circus talk etc.....lol Calamity???? lol what would you call the lions, Browns etc then???? sheesh
