Jets Hire Idzik

After a long and thorough search, the New York Jets named John Idzik their new general manager yesterday. Idzik was formerly the VP of football administration of the Seattle Seahawks. He previously held posts with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Arizona Cardinals as well. Idzikís father, John, was the offensive coordinator for the Jets in the late 1970ís.

The final candidates in the search appeared to be Idzik, Omar Khan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Scott Cohen. Cohen was the only in-house candidate to interview. The Jets had been looking for a replacement for Mike Tannenbaum who was fired the day after the season ended.

Jets fans are hoping Idzik is not similar in style to Tannenbaum who was widely regarded as a good cap guy but not necessarily the best evaluator of talent. I donít really see that they are the same person as Tannenbaum graduated from Tulane University Law School so he was more of a lawyer type. Idzikís background includes coaching on the college level and also over in Europe.

We as fans can tell if a player looks like he is good or not so itís fair to have an opinion. We donít know how to judge executives that work in a front office for a NFL team. I canít get over the fact that people can get really excited or angry over a general manager being hired. The only thing we can see is how good of a team the Seahawks have become and the fact that they seem to draft very well. Jets fans can only hope that Idzik was an instrumental part of that success and that it carries over.
