-It’s been reported that New York Jets owner Woody Johnson is apparently on the fence on whether or not he wants general manager John Idzik to return next year, and isn’t happy with how the team has performed, or with their overall future direction. The Jets have had an abysmal year, currently sitting at 3-11 on the season, and are in range for a top-five pick in the upcoming draft. Idzik clearly had some cleaning up to do from when Mike Tannenbaum was the general manager, but overall his direction for the Jets doesn’t look very promising. His most recent class in the draft as Jets GM in April included 10 picks, seemingly whiffing on most of them by selecting players who couldn’t really contribute in their first year, let alone REMAIN on the roster. Calvin Pryor; the Jets first round pick has had an up and down season. As well as Jace Amaro, who’s been playing better as of late. Third round pick, Dexter McDougle tore his ACL in training camp, and after the third round… well, you don’t want to know. So, whether or not Idzik will remain the Jets GM is still unknown, but there are cases to be made for either side of him staying or going, the main point to keep him is that he has not gotten to pick his own head coach yet. Another game of wait and see.

-In a season that’s gone terribly and horribly wrong for the Jets the only thing to do at this point is to look for the positives that will help build towards the future. In the game against the Titans on Sunday, one of the bright spots was Jets rookie linebacker, Ik Enkempali who had only played 12 snaps this season going into this past Sundays game. Enkempali played at least 12 snaps on Sunday, and made a bit of a contribution batting down two passes at the line of scrimmage. Enkempali stepped up, and so did Calvin Pryor. As much as I’ve ripped on Pryor for not playing well this year, he had a solid game Sunday against Tennessee, recording five tackles, and holding up well in coverage. Eric Decker, albeit not a young guy had a nice impact for the Jets; going over 100 receiving yards for the first time this season, after doing it so often last year playing with Peyton Manning. If anything at all the Jets clearly need a quarterback, but Decker has proved to be a solid addition to the team this year, and makes plays when the quarterback throws it his way. Over the last two weeks of the season, I will continue to look for the positives in such a negative season for the Jets. There are two weeks remaining, and that gives many younger and hungrier players a chance to prove that they can make an impact in this league.
