Just an observation on my part, but, doesn't it appear that Jets GM John Idzik isn't exactly falling all over himself to improve his team through free agency? Though the Jets have plenty of cap room and a ton of needs, he has seemingly chosen to sit on his hands. This begs the question...Why??
Thus, I invite y'all to take this one question pop quiz that I've come up with regarding Idzik's offseason actions...or...perhaps more appropriately, inactions. Please enter your answers below. Note that explanations for your answers are encouraged, and could net you extra credit towards your overall grade. Good luck!!
Please give the best answer to the options given below, to explain why Jets GM John Idzik has seemingly failed to attempt to significantly improve his team through free agency:
a.) Incompetence: Idzik could be in over his head;
b.) Wants Rex Gone: Idzik could purposely be letting the current Jets team wither on the vine, which would give him an excuse to fire Rex Ryan. Like every new GM, he wants to hire his own guy. This is the second straight year that Idzik has done little to help Ryan through free agency. Rex miraculously saved his job last season by leading an obviously talent deficient team to an 8-8 record, while earning the love of his players;
c.) Waiting For a Franchise QB: Perhaps Idzik has decided that the Jets will never be a legitimate threat to win a SB unless and until they find a franchise QB. Because Idzik wasn't sold by the performance of Geno Smith last season, he's decided to "tank", and let the current Jets team crash and burn, while the offense continues to be piloted by the turnover prone Smith;
d.) Waiting For The Patriots to Wither: Idzik by his actions seems to be conceding that there are no moves that he can make that will allow his Jets to currently overcome New England in the AFC East;
e.) All of the above.
Please submit your answer below. Again, good luck!!...LOL!!!!!
