You have to LOL as you read the stupidity of his statements and assumptions.
As Geno Smith joins Mark Sanchez, NY Jets GM John Idzik's signals mixed
Although Idzik has been fueled by a big picture plan, he tap-danced around his quarterback mess — the biggest question surrounding the organization — with a myopic 'one day at a time' stance that you know he doesn’t truly believe.

John Idzik may have the last laugh years from now if the players he selected in his first draft flourish, but the Jets don’t look any better on paper than they did a week ago.
The new general manager turned three of the first 39 picks in the NFL draft into only one sure-fire starter (Dee Milliner) this season. He clouded an already chaotic quarterback situation by selecting the polarizing Geno Smith in the second round. He traded away a fourth-round pick for Saints backup running back Chris Ivory before signing him to a three-year contract.
He added no potential game-changing offensive skill position players to help his quarterback (whoever that may be).
“We are very sure of this plan,” Idzik said Saturday. “You’ve seen it in work now for three months and that’s going to continue in the future… We feel like we’ve really improved our team, specifically over these last three days.”
The draft capped a memorable week for Idzik, who made two seismic moves that will impact the future of the franchise. In the span of five days, the new GM traded away one of the best players in team history (Darrelle Revis) and drafted what the organization hopes is the next franchise quarterback.

“They were obviously highly visible moves,” Idik said. “They’re big moves for our organization… You’re going to have certain things to react to, certain things to make decisions on and those came about. We felt like we were prepared to do it. Looking back on it, I feel like all things considered, we made the right moves for the New York Jets.”
Idzik is stubborn, prudent and, as anyone can easily see from press conferences over the weekend, a very bad liar.
He had systematically gutted the roster of a bad team in the past couple months and patched up the holes with cheap, short-term fixes, scotch tape to hold the fort before he hopes to stock the organization with younger, more talented players in the next few years.
“He has a long-term plan,” a source familiar with the team’s draft process told the Daily News on Saturday.
Although Idzik has been fueled by that plan, he danced around his quarterback mess — the biggest question surrounding the organization — with myopic “one day at a time” rhetoric that you know he doesn’t believe.
