Leading the reported crusade to find the Jets’ next head coach is Woody Johnson, which makes sense. What doesn’t make any sense is his wingman on the endeavor, general manager John Idzik.
Idzik, in just his second season as the general manager, might be fired by Johnson after the year, though Ryan’s seat appears hotter.
Woody Johnson told the Daily News he’s still unsure whether Rex Ryan or John Idzik will be employed by the close of business on Dec. 29, one day after the Jets’ final game.
With three games left, the race is on. Next Sunday could play a big part in deciding things with the Jets playing the lowly Titans in Tennessee.
Despite all the mistakes that have led to fans literally taking it upon themselves to force John Idzik out, the Jets’ general manager did make one decision that has worked out well for his 2-11 team.
According to a report, Idzik has lost support within the organization this season, from the front office to the coaching staff.
Stories about dissension in the ranks when a team is enduring a terrible season are nothing new. But when it comes to the Jets, they are usually too juicy to sweep under the rug.
The angry Jets fans behind the “Fire John Idzik” billboards are planning to make a statement at the Jets’ final home game of the season on December 21.
As the season begins to wind down, the future of the New York Jets general manager has to be determined.
“It’s an embarrassment. It’s definitely embarrassing to me. I feel like I’ve let my owner down. I’ve let our fan base down.”
Ryan knows Smith can’t win. He knows that drafting him last year was Idzik’s biggest mistake in a long line of them. Ryan may be defiant, but he is not insubordinate.
Let’s be serious. Forget the Raiders and the Rams. Why don’t the Jets just move to Los Angeles? They certainly aren’t serving any purpose here.
Rex Ryan’s arrogance cost his New York Jets the game on Monday night.
After a couple of 8-8 seasons had us thinking that maybe they’re not so far away, there’s no obscuring the Jets’ true status now.
If Rex Ryan is indeed a goner, it appears the Jets have already set their sights on his replacement.
