Maybe but I would of rather gone with guys like Moore, Kolb, Foles, and Flynn. At least you get decet upside with those guys and a stop gap for 2 years so we develop out QB that we draft next year.
    He was being sarcastic about the D&G thing. He's not one of the SOJF trolls. You have some catching up to do. If healthy Gerrard is better than those other guys, but less upside, and cheaper. Perfect if he can last the season. odds are good he won't get hurt three years in a row. It's not like they were the same injury.

    I like the way he's methodilically sp. Building our team. He's not interested in headlines, wants to build through the draft. Let's see what he does come 2 weeks from now. The model franchise repeadetedly draft well.

    At least he has a plan!
    So far....so good. He hasn't done anything huge yet but his lack of action seems smart.

    Would be nice to have a strong GM for the next 10 years.

    LMAO. You clearly have the wrong guy. sg3 is as big a homer as we have. heck, he was blowing Sanchez right up to the butt fumble game. At that point he still gave him hand jobs.

    Lately..he has seen the light.

    "got rid of Sutton"...Sutton got a promo to DC in KC

    "Promoted Thurman and Kotwica...."..that's a Rex decision. Coaches are Rex's decisions..

    On if the new general manager will have the final say on all personnel decisions…
    JOHNSON: Yes, that’s the way we’ve done it, but it’s always been a collaborative process. Yes, (Coach) Rex (Ryan) picks coaches and the general manager picks players in the draft.

    http://thejetsblog.com/nyjets/transc...rex-ryan-1813/


    Again, I like Idzik, but again it's the "new guy can do nothing wrong"...Let's all stop anointing him as great after 90 days on the job.

    the sheep have all gathered together and are bah-ing in unison. Just as they did when Herm replaced Groh ("finally someone who can relate to the players and isn't just a robot"), when Mangini replaced Herm ("finally someone who knows more about football than barbecues"), when Tannenbaum replaced Bradway ("finally someone who knows how to work the cap and handle a contract"), when Rex replaced Mangini ("finally someone who has some personality and can inspire players"). It's flavor of the month, and as with most trends, it's circular.

    All we know now is he's signed a few bottom of the barrel free agents to fill out the roster and that's it.

    You may very well be right and I hope you are but let's at least get through a draft.
    I hope I'm right. His plan is to have competition , build thru the draft & not over pay.

    Yeah well those coaches all had potential, and had relative success in their areas of expertise. Tanny traded for Tebow. Gave a big contract to Wayne Hunter, and gave Sanchez a contract guarantee for no apparent reason. There's no way we're looking back, and wishing we had Trader Mike back.

    Sing me up for an AFCCG!!

    No kidding. I was joking with him.

    Garrard simply is not a good option. I wouldn't be shocked if Sanchez beats him out in camp.

    ...and that's done by getting one of the top 3 picks....which will bring in a new head coach...brilliant... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DPKf7y1F-Q
    Tannumdouche's really bad contracts have tied Idzies hands for now.

    I think he is doing a fine job thus far ... Nothing amazing yet ... The Revis trade will further define his skillet ...


    .... If he drafts Geno 'overrated' Smith ... I will puke my guts out ...

    Perhaps the most interesting part about the Keyshawn trade and mega-salary - Jets GM John Idzik, then with the Bucs, helped negotiate it.

    The Bucs made Johnson the highest paid WR in the league with an 8-year, $56-million deal. Two years later, Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl.

    13 years ago yesterday, the Bucs traded two first-round draft picks to the New York Jets for Keyshawn Johnson.

    That had little to do with KJ and more to do with Gruden as the HC and knowing the Raiders play book.. Johnson had more TD's as a Jet then a Buc and had just 2 1,000 + seasons there..

    Until he gets me a QB, I can't get behind anything he does that much. That's what it boils down to for me.

    Good point!

    Idzik.may come accross as boring & certainly isn't flashy but Rex more than makes up for it. Whoever put the muzzle on rex boasting about Super Bowls it was good. He needs to stop talking & produce!
