New York Jets general manager John Idzik spent much of his time with the media answering questions about quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith. But Idzik, who was the Seahawks’ vice president of football administration before taking over in New York last year, also talked about Seattle.
“They had a plan, they worked the plan, they were consistent with it and I think that eventually they didn’t alter that,” Idzik said. “When you talk about avenues of player acquisition, that was evident in Seattle. I think John and Pete’s first year there, we may have set a record for transactions. There was no hesitancy for always exploring ways to improve the roster. And then you saw some of those young guys really mature and really come together and really buy into what they were doing. The result was pretty magnificent this past Super Bowl.”
