Jets | Taking time to build foundation

Tue, 25 Mar 2014 11:49:34 -0700

New York Jets general manager John Idzik said it takes time to build a very firm foundation. "I wouldn't mistake deliberate for lack of activity or patience," Idzik said Tuesday at the league meetings. "By deliberate, we're going to be more thought out in what we do, more research in what we do." "We want to win now, we want to win tomorrow, we want to win the next day," Idzik said. "We want something sustainable. We don't want something that's just short-lived. With that, comes a lot of background work and research that go into your decisions for the day. That's what I mean by deliberate… not that we're going to take our time. We're going to kick our heels up. We're going to make very sound decisions. Those sound decisions, we believe, will lead to sustained success, not just a flash."

"Don't be foolish with something like that."

A lot of the people in the building you know through football circles but you've never worked along side each other. So give us that chance and give us the chance to go through our current roster, ultimately that's the basis of comparison to whatever you may contemplate doing. We haven't taken that first step and that's what I relayed to Darrelle."
