Ok, just watched the entire press conf for a second time and like Idzik even more than I did before. Just get the feeling that this guy gets it and is going to do an excellent job.
One interesting thing I did notice that I missed previously - he looks calm, assured and open in answering every question, except one....the question over the future of Mark Sanchez. On that answer, he starts to touch his face a lot, scratch his nose etc when talking about Sanchez's good qualities. As any amateur psychologist can tell you, touching your face like that is an indication that you don't believe what you are saying and attempting to deflect. I found that interesting. He happily knocked all questions on other subjects out of the park - his own qualifications, Rex's future, Revis etc. But with the Sanchez question, there were clear signs he didn't believe what he was attempting to sell on Sanchez's strengths and future. Worth watching.
Just read through this entire thread to see if anyone made this point before posting it...nail meet head.....very polished performance and really impressed but that was a very telling moment of discomfort in an otherwise flawless display.

On staff changes: "I have only been on the job 3 days, been out of state for that time, have been impressed with Rex and Terry and the personnel staff, Scott, Jo Jo, Jeff, Mike, Ari and my initial impressions are that we have a strong group here."
On Rex Ryan: "I look at him as an energetic, engaging, talented coach. He gets them to play hard. I can speak to that from the opponent side. I look forward to our time together. That (having Rex here), to me, was a plus."
Very telling quotes here, I like what our new GM had to say and how he handled the media, he seems like a very no-nonsense guy.
Idzik seems to have a different persona then Tannenbaum from what I have read and heard thus far.
