    Says "It's just a shame..."
    He and Francesa are having a mutual circle-jerk session...
    "Rex is calling all the shots now, 100% of power is Rex's..."

    How the hell do they know this is true?
    why do we care?

    He made a great point about the other GMs all being "personnel guys". I don't even know if that is true but it would be quintessential SOJ.
    Nice doesn't make him smart.

    Neither do his Fatty kiss up calls.

    Why do you defend every whiner

    LOL. As a native Italian, Mike's uttering of, "chicken fran-chase" makes my blood boil.

    I agree he can be a Francesa kiss-ass at times.

    However, in all fairness, Ira is a great Jets fan. So I ask, why in the world would Francesa be his first call to discuss this hire?

    Francesa's hatred for the Jets is obvious, so why try to have a rational discussion on this hire with him?

    Ira is a fool, doesn't seem to understand the game well. Who cares that he can follow the team 24/7 because he apparently has no job or life outside of the Jets, he doesn't understand the sport. His opinion is meaningless. And he's a Francesa kiss-ass which is just sad

    He probably was already on hold with ESPN at the same time. Ira is a serial caller, and has the "need" to be on the air.

    Nor me haha....but he has a point regarding personnel vs. numbers guy. At least he's definitely very bright. Math degree from the Ivy League and he's coming from one of the youngest, strongest organizations in the league. He also has NFL pedigree that he has been around ALL his life.

    Bottom line, if the Jets finally draft a Franchise QB under Idzik's watch he'll be one of the best Jet GM's...instantly. It's that simple.

    How could the Jets ever win a SB when there has been a MONSTER QB, sometimes more than 1, within the AFC East since Joe Namath retired?

    That is priceless, two douchebags in an embarrassingly amateur commercial...
