JETSfaninNE Posted April 24, 2015 Share Posted April 24, 2015 (edited) Agreed. But he didn't fail here because of how he handled the media, he failed because he just wouldn't improve the team in the offseason and his drafts were horrible. He was in over his head, he didn't know what he was doing. In terms of handling the media I thought he did a good job mostly, despite having Rex there who kept cracking jokes. He was trying to be all business and keep it professinal, he never really said too much, never gave out too much info. I liked that. The rest of him I hated. The thing is when Idzik did speak it never spoke confidently like he know what he was doing. Everyone gave him the benefit of the doubt the first year b/c it was a change most wanted and he was severely handcuffed with the cap. It wasn't really until last year that we saw he was a poor negotiator and apparently was a shut in and not a team player in the organization. Since Macc has come in up until his pre-draft presser he is a man that sounds like he has a definitive plan and has an actual answer for the Jets. (And he already proved his negotiating chops as well for bringing in some big time talent) Only time will tell but I do think this is a night and day difference between GMs and I'm happy we had Idzik for 2 years b/c without a GM steering the Jets into a glacier we may not have gotten the significant change we needed in the organization. I couldn't be more excited about where this org goes from here under Macc and Bowles. Edited April 24, 2015 by JETSfaninNE 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
