I know what you mean, however unlike Alderson, Idzik has at least gotten the Jets (with a spotty roster in general and very depleted offense) to .500 in a year that some expected 3-13/4-12. Alderson's Mets have yet to do that

I don't give Idzik nearly the credit for that I do Rex/Morningwheg. It really was a bad roster further compromised by one of their best players (Cromartie) being hampered the whole season.

Like Sandy, Idzik won't do anything unless the value chart tells him it's okay. We'll see what else Idzik does this year. Decker and Vick were a nice start but they were a day late and a dollar short on ninety different corners and god help us if the Pats (who do need a RB) swoop in and kick more dirt in our faces by signing CJ.

Patience needs to be kept here among the fanbase. This is still a new GM we're talking about, with no previous exp. at the role prior to joining the Jets. Yes, we've swung and missed on DRC, D'Jax & Freeney this offseason.. but we've landed a few great pieces also. (and locked up 9 of our own UFA's aswell)

We've got 2 offers out pending to CJ2K & Rice, that could both be locked up by the end of the week. http://www.cbssports...on/228279875965

 

..how angry can the fanbase be with Eric Decker, Michael Vick, Dimitri Patterson, and potentially both Chris Johnson & Sidney Rice? :noclue:  not-to-mention 13 draft picks on tap next month. #PumpYourBrakes

I could care less about Rice to be honest...I get the logic and obviously he wouldn't cost much but god his legs are shot. I'd kind of rather just draft someone in a deep WR draft.

The franchise is in the middle of a paradigm-shift.. and I find it refreshing to see a frugal, resourceful technique.. rather than Mad Mike signing names just to sell god damn jersey's. The Jets had NOTHING last year to work with, and he magician'd an 8-8 record. Nothing! We rolled into training camp last year with: Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, Joe McKnight, Antonio Cromartie and Mark Sanchez.. the same nucleus from 2009. They're all gone, with the exceptions Mangold & Rex.

 

I'm embracing this new modus operandi of a more methodical, disciplined approach. It's a fvcking breath of fresh air, compared to the moron that was in charge before Idzik.

 

EDIT: --and change the name of this thread from 2013 -to- 2014 god damn it! :offtopic:  :thumbsup:

Or we could just start a 2014 thread lol

CJ is a Jet per Schefter on a 2-year deal. Good on Idzik, he had to improve the offense dramatically in FA and he's doing that. I did think the worst when he left town not signed.

For a 28 year old back, that's exactly the right length. Don't want to go any further than 2 years.

 

Now we've got the makings of a real 3 headed monster back there.  Johnson doesn't have to shoulder the load anymore...maybe save some of those 85 yard runs for later in the game when Ivory has already softened the defense up a bit. He can also now become the new Tomlinson in catching the ball out of the backfield. We can expect a solid 40-50 receptions out of him this year.

 

The Jets have been criticized in the past(perhaps justifiably) for not having enough offensive gamebreakers.

 

Is Chris Johnson a game-breaker? Damn right he is.

..quite the offseason for Mr. Idzik, no? :thumbsup:

 

Next up.. Sidney Rice. Couple that with Ivory, Powell, D'Brick, Colon, Cumby, Kerley, Mangold, etc.. we might just have an offense next season.

Seattle made it clear they wanted him the day they released him. Would have been surprised to see him elsewhere, both parties wanted him to be in Seattle.

CJ has bad vision, block good for him and he'll easily put up 1,000 yards, good moves by the Jets this offseason!

I am surprised anyone wanted him. Rice Is pretty worthless as a WR, his greatest contribution seems to be as an IR player.

Jets RB Mike Goodson (ACL, MCL surgery) will be sidelined for the "near future," GM John Idzik stated Monday.
