it's like shopping in the generic aisle at the supermarket. the fans want Coca Cola and Idzik puts America's Choice Cola in the cart.
Why the long face? Because it sux. Oh yeah it's great for the bottom line. But this season is shaping up to be unwatchable.
we have 3 pages of thread about a player who the Jets won't sign. The jets can only sign players no one wants, for the vet minimum. Um... okie.
It's not like some big signing is going to get us to the Super Bowl, and almost no one wants to be here. I'd rather go the cheap route this year and then next season we can be players on the FA market. Especially if Geno Smith is the goods. Who wouldn't want to be part of a team with an exciting young QB?
Speaking of Geno, he alone makes this season VERY watchable. You get this, right? The prospect of having a potential franchise QB is ALWAYS cause for some optimism.
We're so used to spending big on guys like Calvin Pace and Santonio Holmes we fail to realize that's not how any successful team should be built. Idzik invested heavily in the draft and cut out the fat. Going forward only good things can come from it. How is it not exciting that, for once, we seem to have a solid plan, and the GM is prepared to steadfastly stick to it?
