    Good teams don't give a !@#$% what the media says, that's what the Jets are doing

    They're taking the best player on the board, regardless of what kind of backlash they get in the paper or on TV.

    There's only one important question here. Do the Jets believe Geno Smith is a franchise QB and that Sanchez isn't? If that's the case, then there's nothing else to discuss.

    How would you feel if the Jets didn't draft him because they were afraid of this reaction and he went on to be a stud?

    Tanny would have traded away two picks to trade up for Smith


    good to have a GM that knows what he is doing for a change

    Its not the media as much as its the fans

    They are disciplined to their board - I will give them that

    All through the draft process they praise the RAvens for just taking the best guy on their board. The Jets do it and it's a catastrophe.

    Or he would have picked him at 13.

    I don't hate the value of this pick ... I hate the pick for the Jets.

    Sanchez was either going to turn things around, or he was going to continue to suck and deliver Bridgewater to us.

    So lame ... Words cannot describe it.

    How can you bank on Bridgewater???

    What if Sanchez was below average but not awful? And we went something like 7-9?

    Whichever team is picking 1 or 2 is not trading away Bridgewater

    Or he'd deliver us another 6-10 season and you'd get nothing with the 10th pick.

    The Jets finally have someone at the helm who understands the importance of getting VALUE with each draft pick. The Jets have gotten better with the 3picks so far. Don't see how anyone can spin what's happened so far negatively. Best QB in the draft at 39 without trading up to get him. GREAT job by Izdik.

    I'm open minded ... nice value with the pick ... Would have preferred the kid stayed for day 2, toughed it out, perhaps made lite of the situation ... He'll need to develop thick skin playing for this team

    Idzik is definitely going by his board ... Good for him
