1. John idzik's first off season as jets g.m. has been quiet and relatively uneventful, which is something this franchise really needed. idzik has found some low cost/high reward free agents like rb mike goodson, g willie colon, olb antwan barnes. tHESE ARE GUYS WHO HAVE SHOWN FLASHES OF BEING PRODUCTIVE NFL PLAYERS IN SMALL SAMPLES. WHETHER OR NOT THAT MEANS THEY WILL SHINE IN BIGGER ROLES REMAINS TO BE SEEN. STILL, IDZIK HAS GOTTEN THESE GUYS IN HERE WITHOUT DOING ANY DAMAGE TO THE SALARY CAP, WHICH HE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH ROOM TO WORK WITH ANYWAY. IN THAT ASPECT, I LIKE WHAT HE'S DONE HERE.
2. I LOVE THE FACT THEY HAVEN'T JUST MOVED DARRELLE REVIS JUST TO MOVE HIM. IDZIK SEEMS TO BE WAITING ON GETTING A BIG HAUL FOR THE BEST DEFENSIVE PLAYER IN THE GAME. ALTHOUGH REVIS IS COMING OFF THE ACL INJURY, IDZIK IS STILL HOLDING OUT FOR A BOATLOAD IN RETURN FOR THE ALL PRO CORNERBACK. RUMORS HAVE SWIRLED THAT TAMPA BAY HAS BEEN THE MOST INTERESTED PARTY, BUT IS REFUSING TO GIVE UP ITS FIRST ROUND PICK. IDZIK MUST GET AT LEAST ONE FIRST ROUND PICK FOR REVIS...AND IT HAS TO BE THIS YEAR. REVIS MAY BE COMING OFF A SERIOUS INJURY, BUT HE'S STILL AN ELITE PLAYER AT A POSITION WHERE THERE SIMPLY AREN'T A LOT OF THEM. REVIS CUTS OFF HALF THE FIELD. I'M STILL IN THE CORNER OF THE JETS KEEPING HIM. I WANT HIM TO STAY. BUT IF HE'S GOING TO GO...IT HAS TO BE FOR A BOATLOAD.
3. The one signing i didn't love was the david garrard signing. garrard hasn't played in two years and at best was never more than a better than average qb. his best attribute was that he was mobile. those days are gone now as he is well past his prime and his legs have certainly slowed down. i know they wanted to bring in competition for mark sanchez, but garrard to me isn't really the answer. the scary thing to me will be if sanchez can't beat out garrard in camp...that will be the final nail in the coffin for mark. Call me crazy, but i still think sanchez can succeed here. last year was horrific, but he he has shown the ability to win here before. he gets one more shot...if he's got any pride...he'll make the most of it.
