Congrats on being less than 2000 words, I would offer you a Labatt, but I don't want to offend you.
I don't disagree with you at all, but if Idzik feels this way, he better be drafting a QB pretty damn high this year IMO. You only get so long to put a good team on the field, and if his strategy is that he is not going to put a good team on the field until he can put it around a good QB, he better be doing everything in his power to get that guy. If he does not get that guy this year, either Geno or via the draft, he goes into year 3 without a good QB, and I don't think they will be drafting in the top 10 in 2015 so getting a top QB again will be tough, and year 1 of a QB is usually not overly successful. So does he go into year 4 with an unsettled QB position? Very dangerous.
Personally I don't think his strategy of not signing say Mevi$ has anything to do at all with the QB position, and more to do with Woody and Mevi$ himself. Mevi$ was one of the few guys that was young enough, and talented enough that a 4-5 year deal would still be providing value whenever it is that Idzik plans on really competing, which I hope like hell is within the next 2-3 years.
This team was one half away from the SB with Mark Sanchez, lets not lose site of that. I think Geno is much better, not that, that means anything at all, but if you built up a dominating D, and a dominating run offense, I think between his legs and what an easy offense it would be to run, Geno could make that work well enough to be a very good team. Of course we want more than that from our QB.
