    except for the fact that it was the basis and probably is the basis for his wealth together with his jets ownership

    For only 50Gs a seat in owners box at every home game???? I ll take two-my grandson would love it. How many seats are there??? I have a few friends who would do it too.  But fortunately or unfortunately depending on your viewpoint-  Woody ( who seems like a nice man) won't do it for estate planning reasons.  Plus he doesn't need the money despite the recent drop in JNJ stock price. Got to be a joke

    you are being overly generous but he seems to be a decent kid, studies hard, but is slow on the reads and late on his throws which are sometimes accurate

    I  believe that the Philly trade was made to use Bradford as a pawn to move up get Mariotta (no surprise) and the resigning of Sanchez was ease Mariott's  transition if necessary. Whether Bradford is used to trade with the Jets or another team is still up in the air. Bradford may not be perfect but is certainly an upgrade over anything on out roster and if we were to complete a trade with Philly and pick up Bradford, their No. 1 plus other considerations (their No. 1 plus plus)I say go for it

    I am not knocking anyone but Dan Quinn and Todd Bowles both appear to be fine DCs. Don't know enough about the talent they are working with. Did either one coach without  CBs who are not NFL quality? Just believe Rex covered the deficiencies with fine schemes and limited talent.

    I love Ryan-he is a great defensive coach and anything we get to replace him will be step down. I am not sure is a great HC and have questioned his in game decisions. That being said, given the paucity of HC talent available, the lack of front office support this year, the force feeding of a QB thrust upon him I would say let a new GM decide his fate.

    To equate the movement with firing Pete Carroll with the firing of John Idzik is patently wrong. Carol went back to college, got a measure of education and experience and was ready for the next step. Whether he would have succeeded without the experience of the interceding years we will never know. Idtzik has thus far shown he can manage the cap but not the draft . Further that he did not fill the fill the prime needs of the team or the pieces that fit the coach.   Idzik should be moved into a pure administrative position in the back office or given his outright release.

    Rex is gone and hopefully Idzig is transferred to the bookkeeping dept.

    what has Idzig done to warrant his continued employment with the jets. There are those who keep pointing to Richardson-as I recall he was the second of his two first round draft choices. The first hasn't proven a thing. The cap space was created at the expense of not signing competent corner or other NFL caliber player. If his mission was to sabotage the existing coaching staff-he was a success. There were numerous one year contracts he could have brought on board without hurting future cap space including one competent former jet corner.
     
    12 or 13 draft choices this year and how many seem destined for a long NFL future?? Tanny had his faults but filled in the blanks in the lineup with far more quality and seemed to satisfy cap requirements along the way. I seriously doubt Woody Johnson put money restrictions on the I man.
     
    I believe there is little question that Ryan will have offers from both the network and NFL teams within hours of his departure-How many offers will Idzig  get if we are fortunate to his release as well??

    The first one out the door should be Idzik. The new GM should be given the choice of extending or terminating Rex. Love Rex and with the cast he has been given in the defensive backfield. 4th in rushing D and 15th in passing D with a QB who put a lot of point on the board for the opposition.

    It would be an upgrade and probably a more coherent press conference
