Only Time Will Tell On Idzik

I Just read this piece by Manish Mehta and I think that he is being overly dramatic and too quick on the draw with his criticism. He accuses Idzik of using catch phrases like "sustainable success" as a cop out for missing out on free agents. But I think Mehta has a short memory. Not long ago people were deriding Tannenbaum for over paying players and handing out badly structured contracts. Now that we have a sensible, clear headed GM, Mehta says he is 'misreading the market' and that he 'overanalyzed free agency'.

I think that we should give Idzik the benefit of the doubt for now. Dynasties aren't built in one off season. We have a great cap situation, our squad isn't strong yet but has a nice core. Our defensive front is unbelievable. We kept Rex, which for now I believe gives us the best chance of winning. And we have yet to see Idzik's draft. So how about we take a step back and put our faith in the man, and wait until it goes truly wrong before we make him the scape goat for what is yet to be a failure.

I think ideally we'd like to fall somewhere in between Washington and Green Bay - in my mind the two polar opposites of the free agency spending spectrum. (admittedly Washington has been unusually quiet this offseason). We should address needs through the draft and maybe get real needs through well thought out trades or frugal spending on free agents. I think DJax would be an amazing addition and give us a really potent WR corps.

But basically, we should give Idzik a chance to prove himself and not rush him out of town because we want what we want and we want it NOW!
