John Idzik’s State of a Disaster residence on Monday was a unhappy and pitiable arrangement by an overmatched male non-professional to lead a Jets into a future.
The ubiquitous manager obliged for a unlucky register of a 1-7 group referred to dual typed pages of records orderly placed in front of him during a weird 19-minute digression finish with forced emotion, cloyed articulate points and fallacious babble.
Somehow, this former salary-cap male managed to make Jets fans feel worse about their group 24 hours after a 20-point butt-kicking with a cluelessness that can’t truly be measured.
Idzik didn’t look, sound or act like a personality means of regulating this mess.
He overdramatized a bad state of a authorization as if Anderson Cooper would rush to Florham Park to cover these critical universe events. He praised a overwhelming use habits of Eric Decker, a soldier mentalities of Damon Harrison (he played with a sprained ankle!) and Sheldon Richardson (he returned to a diversion after removing an IV!), and a never-die opinion of Rex Ryan.
Through it all, he pronounced 0 to assure a starving fan bottom that he’s a partial of a solution.
“My opening to date is unsatisfactory,” Idzik pronounced in one of a few genuine moments of a mostly wooden 39-minute press discussion that suggested how misled he has been for scarcely dual years.
Idzik seemed as if he had spent a night rehearsing his lines in front of a lavatory mirror. He was ungainly though a spirit of authenticity. He tripped over one apparently memorized line usually to fast scold himself. He chastised a group for a turnover differential, for Pete’s Sake.
He waxed elegant about Ryan.
“The final time we checked, all a traits that make Rex Ryan a personality − a conduct manager − are still intact,” Idzik said. “He’s an glorious football mind. He’s a teacher. He’s a coach. He’s a motivator. He’s a mentor. He’s means to adapt. He sees both short- and long-term vision. He’s a aspirant to his essence and he will never quit. It comes as no warn that a players wish to play so tough for Rex Ryan and his staff… we support Rex.”
Idzik was so tender by Ryan’s Lombardi-esque skills, so smitten by a mass of Rex, that he stopped brief of guaranteeing a manager would hang around for a final 8 games. Idzik suggested that he spends some-more time with Ryan than his possess wife, though he couldn’t even contend either a manager would be with a group for a subsequent dual months. It was revolting on innumerable levels.
“It’s not not committing,” Idzik said, presumably with his fingers crossed behind his back. “It’s only a process not to concentration on pursuit standing during a season.”
He attempted to clear his sloppiness in giveaway group this offseason by underscoring a coherence of cavernous income top space and significance of creation correct financial decisions. Mission: Not Accomplished.
Idzik refused to acknowledge mistakes in giveaway group and a draft.
“You can’t re-live a past,” he said.
In integrity to a man, there were so many errors to name from. Perhaps he didn’t wish to singular out any one of his litany of gaffes.
“Now and a destiny are a same when it comes to a preference making,” Idzik pronounced with a true face.
Meanwhile, he didn’t sufficient residence vivid needs during cornerback and far-reaching receiver that have helped bury Ryan’s group during a median of a season.
Six rookie wideouts scored a touchdown on Sunday. Seven had during slightest 80 yards. Three surfaced 100 yards and found a finish zone. Idzik’s 3 drafted receivers have a grand sum of 0 receptions… this season. None of a 3 is on any active roster. The pitiable Jets cornerback conditions has had a sputter outcome that has marginalized hard-hitting first-round collect Calvin Pryor.
Idzik has given nobody reason to trust that he’s a right male to name a new conduct manager or breeze a intensity authorization quarterback subsequent year. Can Woody Johnson unequivocally trust this male to make intelligent crew moves?
Idzik’s crew decisions have bordered on brutal. His inability to act decisively valid dear in giveaway agency. His paranoid ways fostered an diseased sourroundings via a classification for a past 21 months.
He’s given a Jets true no discernible reason to get behind him. His past knowledge as a income top manager in Seattle isn’t scarcely adequate to trust that he can indeed make correct choices to get a Jets on a winning path.
“I’ve gifted this plan,” Idzik pronounced of roving a coattails of genuine crew group in his prior stops. “I know it works. we know it works.”
Nobody in a room, listening on a radio or examination on radio believed him.
“I know one thing: He’s perplexing his best,” pronounced Ryan, throwing a life raft to his falling GM. “There’s no doubt about it.”
Idzik’s prepared remarks enclosed stories of assembly Jets fans trimming from 5 to 75 in immature jerseys, a unhappy recklessness of a male underneath fire. He pronounced many bizarre things, though 0 some-more frightening than 9 difference that will haunt constant fans anticipating to stand out of this abyss.
I’m a ubiquitous manager of a New York Jets.
