    Tiny bit of info/news

    Interesting note from Tony Pauline's blog at Draftinsider:

    Several agents who met with the New York Jets during the combine say it seems Rex Ryan is running the show. We hear in several instances general manager John Idzik struggled to get a word in edgewise as Ryan controlled meetings. To be completely fair someone who met extensively with the Jets mentioned its more about personalities than control. Its not that Idzik doesnít have control rather heís much more reserved than the boisterous Ryan.
    The italics were the way it was formatted on the blog, not anything I added. With there being little to no news, I figured I share this find here.

    This is exactly what we were told by Mike Francesa, Adam Shein, and everyone else of note.

    We got the last kid picked for dodgeball and he's a behind-the-scenes operator.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all. Woody wants to run this franchise into the ground, and Rex is the perfect man for such a mission.

    What would be his motivation for this? Maybe he is an incompetent owner, I could buy that, but why would he deliberately try to set up the franchise for failure?

    That makes zero sense.

    Also, before everyone starts fraking out, in the exact same quote it says that it is more of a perosnality trait, meaning that Idzik is more soft spoken than loud moth Rex. None of us know right now who the main decision maker is.

    Stupidity requires no motivation.

    Anytime "Mike Francesa" is referred to as a reliable source, I'm going to write something. Please stop referring to this ass-clown as if he has any integrity or intelligence, whatsoever. He never has and never will give an unbiased opinion regarding the Jets. The fact you give this guy even an ounce of respect is ridiculous.

    Just last week the sports pope blessed the masses with this lie; "all Revis ever wanted was to be in New York and play for the Jets".

    Of course, the fact that he held out every other year and would not leave a nickel on the table during negotiations did not come up during his sermon. He continued by speaking for all Jets fans by saying we should be upset with the owner for not wanting to keep this poor soul who only.....wants...to....be.....a....jet. (And be the highest paid defensive player in NFL history)

    You don't think it makes sense that a billionaire would take his billion dollar investment and actively find ways to ruin it? No? What are you, logical or something?

    As for the thread topic, this "news" means less then nothing. It does not matter who is louder just who makes the final decision. And a tell tale sign will be whether Revis gets traded. If he does then the fairy tale narrative that Ryan still runs the show completely and with final say will be put to rest. Of course since reality rarely matters in the world of the New York sports/gossip media, the stories will probably continue.

    Franchise Tags

    With only fifteen minutes to go and not surprisingly no Jet player was franchised. Franchise tags because of the rising costs seems to be down this year. A list of the top free agents this year found no Jets in the top 50. Highest rated was Dustin Keller at 56

    Who should the Jets try to sign?

    Lets be honest. Does this surprise anybody? This was one of my biggest fears but I am still hopeful for Idzik and will wait until I see the draft picks before I decide if Rex is in complete control.

    Rex is an alpha dog and he will dominate those with weaker personalities.
