Mike Francesa, aka loudmouth, has been basically an annoyance to New York Jets’ readers. Whether it was done on purpose go drive the fans nuts. Was he trying to be extra , nasty to Mets issues for the heck of it? I doubt it. You would think he would have the abililty to keep some of that in decline, for the simple good of his team.
So, every year goes by, and we hear more and more of Mike Francesa attempting to teach the world how terribly the organization is run. Even though the leaks have stopped, the breaking stories have stopped, and the image is clearly changing. But, not in Francesa’s eyes. Idzik was a bad idea in his opinion, he has no control. The organization still belongs to Rex. With two new running backs, are they really moving to WCO? Or are the Jets’ screwing this one up a well?
It gets to the point, where the Jets could do everything correctly, and how coaches tell them. But, it will turn up on TMZ. Wait until the news comes out, if Cromartie belches, it will the biggest story in the league. The mainstream media is determined to continue the “circus” image, no matter what?
So I was thinking about it, why do we even pay attention? Because he is so far over the top, that it bypasses rude and goes right to funny. Remember when John Idzik’s opening press conference took place? Mike used the words he wanted to hear to create an opinion. He picks and chooses what he wants to use, and when you look past it and really listen, it’s funny. Take a listen:
Remember when Mike said Idzik never told us he made the final decision. However, you only came to that conclusion from the opening remarks. Someone asked him that question, who makes the final decision, and the response was , “I do.” That is just a microcosm of how Mike does his job. You can’t behave that way. You have to report both sides, otherwise you are not credible on the subject.
Someone of this has to be on purpose, don’t you think? He has gone so far off the deep end negative about the Jets, it’s almost as if the Jets slept with his wife. Am I right? He gets so predictable, ad so annoyed, that it is giggly laughable. Mike pieces together a story that suits his needs, and nobody every confronts him. Isn’t that evidence of at least to some degree, that he is trying to push buttons? Or can he really have this much of a hate agenda against a team in his market?
The scary part is that Francesa has some decent insights on other subjects, and even other NFL teams. But it comes to the Jets, and the pot is stirred daily. It must be on purpose.
But this is a reason to get excited about the upcoming season. The dialog between these players and the new chemistries with coordinators bares watching, and we will watch going ahead through the next few weeks. But whether you like it or not, it is certainly entertaining.
