Rex should not have greater role in personnel Dan Leberfeld

Since GM front-runner John Idzik is considered mainly a cap guru by some, this has led people to think this way –

“If the Jets go in that direction, it could mean a greater say in personnel for coach Rex Ryan,” wrote a blogger on “The Red Zone” website.

That would be a huge mistake.

Ryan’s role in personnel needs to be lessened, not increased.

He’s way too emotional when it comes to player personnel.

And emotion and personnel decisions are a toxic mix.

But honestly, don’t make the assumption that hiring a guy like Idzik would lead to a great personnel role for Rex.

Woody Johnson said, on the record, that the new GM will have final say on player decisions.
