Oh How the Tide Turns with the Jets' Fan Base

It’s amazing how quickly that the fan base can be swayed.

For days now, there had been all kinds of questions. The fan base had trouble with John Idzik. He waited too long to make moves. He left gaping holes in the Jets’ roster. He pissed off agents, annoyed fellow employees with his slow, deliberate style.

Some of the fan base actually wanted Idzik out the door, without the off-season plan anywhere near being completed. Extreme? Sure, but that is how a football fan base can be. They are passionate, and when you combine that with a long gap between championships, they become extreme.

Then there is one move that brings everyone back to your side.

Michael Vick was signed to a one year contract, and all was right again with the world. John Idzik, to most fans, was brilliant once again. Idzik had restructured the Jets’ offense, to a point where it could actually be competitive.

Now, all of the negativity to John Idzik is gone. One quarterback is signed, one that isn’t a guarantee to work out here, as we talked about yesterday, and the fan base wants to erect a John Idzik statue outside of Met Life.

It’s amazing how one move can change everyone’s outlook, isn’t it?

I just found it interesting, the way the fan base changed its tune this quickly. The team is still nowhere near ready to hit the field, but in one day, the opinion changed for everyone.

So much so that I want to hear what you think. Please vote in our poll below regarding the off-season to date:
