In his introductory press conference, new Jets general manager John Idzik showed himself to be whatever you want to make of him.
Today’s long-delayed press conference featuring Rex Ryan and Woody Johnson was supposed to signal a new beginning after a disappointing season. Instead, it became another example of the organization’s tiresome predilection for inane narrative-peddling.
So Mike Tannenbaum is gone as the Jets' general manager.(3)
For the better part of his career, Mark Sanchez has been below average, but not awful.

The high point of the Jets' dismal 17-12 loss to the Carolina Panthers last night came halfway through the fourth quarter, courtesy of Tim Tebow.
It was only a matter of time before the Republicans took ownership of Tim Tebow. And Jets owner Woody Johnson, a major G.O.P. donor who once had Sarah Palin up to his owner's box, was just the guy to do it.
In an interview with Fox Business News—most of which consisted of Johnson and reporter David Asman praising Governor Chris Christie's pro-big business policies—Johnson said of Tebow, “He’s a lot like Governor Christie. He is what he is. He’s not afraid to tell you what he believes in. And he will, I think, be a very positive influence in the locker room and I think he’s gonna help us win a lot of games.”
