TJB is running at Idziks pace today.

You Folks think CJ would be a good pick-up for say, 2-3m?

Testing

all I said was Idzik will be looking for coupons when CJ is cut today and my post is pending?

A new day in Jet land...anything exciting on the cards today?

Idzik bashing is typical Jet fan knee jerk reaction. Let the guy carry out his plan of building long term stability, instead of the short-sighted Oakland Raider-like quick fix that lasts two years. The guy helped construct the Seahawks as we know them right now, for Godsakes. Calm down

Im don't paying $ 300 a ticket when they have 30 million for free agents and they don't want to spend the money on the good players.. Why should I spend my hard earned money for crap.. Better land some one like CJ2K or Im done paying for garbage players..

Some of you guys don't get it...Idzik doesn't care what the pundits or analysts think! He certainly doesn't care what the bloggers or the fans think, for goodness sakes, he doesn' t even care what Woody Johnson thinks (lol)...so just sit back and let's see what type of team we have in August because obviously you guys have "no more patience" for the bottom - feeder mentality. Idzik, I believe...

I will wait until after I see draft before I consider him to be, officially, an `Idziot`

let it all play out...what if we go 16-0...will you guys still bash idzik???

I finally got It! It doesn't matter to laud or despair over Idziks moves. It will all be exposed by the results of this season. So, I will just wait it out and hope he knows what he is doing, but in no way, and I don't care if there is long term plan, we still should get more than 8 wins this season with the great shape resource wise that we are in. If we cant improve from 8-8 with 12 draft picks and over 30m in cap space now, something is very wrong! 10 wins and a post season or it will be a failure and fans should go on the warpath!!

@jake100  Yes, but it'll be interesting to see where his value is. Most people expect him to get a part-time player salary like Sproles or Reggie Bush ($3.5 - $4 million). Would you take him at that cost?

@jake100  sPam probably identified you as a spam poster and blocked it.

@twin  no I wont bash him...but if we go 6 and 10 i dont want him to be in charge of free agency next year. ,,and he wont be,,

@Monty I don't know if that record alone would get him fired.

@bradysucks  Stop with that! My new quote..."In Idzik, I am baffled" Idzik's mantra" if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with BS!"

@levi @Brendan @jake100

NFL Network was showing tape of CJ and pointed out how badly the OL kept getting beat last year.  There was constant penetration on run plays.  Not sure if blocking is his forte.

@Brendan @jake100   Idzik has been already found guilty, lol He can appeal at the draft though and possibly get a reprieve, but it was a crime what he did, I should say didnt do in Facy.

@Monty  Well...Brady & Peyton are playing BossHogg, Coples, WilkShake, and Big Snacks....and so far as the Raiders; Schaub has to face (see above).

@a57se You are condescending even towards people who are right. That's an achievement.

@Bent @Monty 

ZOMG!!!! Wow, he started 10 straight without getting knocked out!

IN 2010 no less!!!

I'm impressed!

@Monty  "patterson whos never lasted even a half season of regular play"


He started the last 10 games of 2010, having been a reserve over the first half of the season.

@Monty  I agree, I can tell woody is fuming but trying to keep it light. His remark" no more patience" speaks volumes. Heads will roll if they dont make the playoffs.

Monty

they play peyton..they play brady..if thier corners get embarassed ..They play the raiders,A team that seemingly upgraded its talent in free agency greatly..If we get smoked..Our schedule is full with teams that took advantage of free agency... woody is not a stupid man he will make the connections once our record starts to take shape

Monty
Monty

@Brendan @Monty  Imagne the week to week of that record..after were losing close games because of a lack of talent..Tanny spent every dime made every trade he could to upgrade the talent on this roster...and if there was a lack of talent at reciever lets say,  he was crucified..

After letting people like ware , Desean, peppers revis,  davis byrd...and even passing affordable uprades like munnerlyn  verner  mjd  clemons woodly carlos rogers,,

after all of those proven young taleted players you sing a guy like patterson whos never lasted even a half season of regular play.. the papers the fans will call for his head every day,,,woody himself called out for Desean..and idzik stood his ground,

You may be right that record alone might not seemingly do it,,but the months of earning that record..might.. Im not saying hell be fired..but he wont be in charge..but thats my opinion.  Hey I hope they kick ass and its a mute point..but talent wins games and he still hasn't upgraded the talent...commiserate to his opportunity to do so

@jaygo @jake100  really I thought you were calling us drunks five minutes ago because we don't share your opinion.

You broke the code!

Bingo

Can't draft BPA with this many gaping needs not addressed in free agency

UncleJoesJetFarm

@jaygo  No excuse for Idzik to do NOTHING this FAcy with major holes in the roster  with massive cap space, come on dude!!!!!

UncleJoesJetFarm
UncleJoesJetFarm

@williamg1 @bradysucks @jake100   True, but it will be at the expense of this season. We cant expect raw rookies to make a difference so fast. I felt Idzik could have balanced it much better with FAcy and not just rely on a killer draft which is very rare. A sound FAcy would not only have made us competitive this season , but would enhanced the draft also. They both have to work together and that is what makes the very good teams. Idzik failed in part one!

williamg1

@Monty @williamg1 @bradysucks @jake100  I just don't know how we balance BPA in the draft, with the needs we have at WR, TE, O-line and, possibly, CB. I'm a little more bullish than most about our CBs, but we could use a quality CB somewhere in the draft. 


My point is: with needs like those, its tough to go BPA in the first few rounds. 

Monty

@bradysucks @jake100  if his plan was to keep a low profile and build slowly he greatly underestimated the intelligance and passion of the NY fan.

This isnt seattle,,,we dont need a nickname like 12th man to give us identity,

this isnt TampaBay.

We know our stuff MR Idzik and we want to win..now..Rex wants to win now.. Woody wants to win now..you wanted to show you were smarter than everyone else ..you had better be right..


He has the biggest target Ive seen someone build in just a little over a year. :)

I am not worried about the damage control posse for Idzik......They know what's up (even if they don't admit it)


Idzik is ALL IN with the draft.....He better have a good one



UncleJoesJetFarm

@bradysucks @jake100   I could not agree more. It really has me wondering. We better stop this talk before the damage control posse comes riding in with sheriff you know who, lol

How many times do I have to tell you, I was wrong! I wanted to believe, but the more I see, the more I am concerned and perplexed. Let me off the freakin hook already!!!!  LOL

Like I said - Idzik is a SCAVENGER....a vulture....This is how he operates


In Idzik YOU trust.....This was YOUR MANTRA 

Monty

@jake100 @bradysucks  please .. if this is a bad season there will be literal effigies to Idzik burning in the parking lots. You wont need war paint. 

UncleJoesJetFarm
UncleJoesJetFarm

@bradysucks @jake100  Very true, but you still could have increased your odds in the draft by a productive FACY so you dont have to draft for need and can go BPA, but Idzik blew it in FAcy!

bradysucks

@jake100 @bradysucks  


His plan is actually brilliant.....but it only works if he drafts very well


He has not addressed needs as well as he could have in free agency which means he better add depth at WR in the draft......starting quality

@jake100 @bradysucks  


In Idzik YOU trust



lol



It's just like Hank/Naples said earlier today.....You can bet Idzik is putting on his scuba gear so that he can dive into the free agent sewer that remains in search of bargains.....


Our GM is a SCAVENGER.....He's a vulture.....This is his nature


He wants BPA in the draft ......but not in free agency.......very mixed messages
