New York Jets general manager John Idzik has reportedly "alienated" Jets fans, as well as members of the team's front office and coaching staff.
According to Schefter, Idzik has lost support in multiple areas because he has ""not played the game of politics well, internally or externally."
Jets management is aware of the unhappiness being expressed about Idzik and that is expected to be a consideration when Jets owner Woody Johnson decides just how major the changes he makes to the organization will be.
The same group responsible for the plane and billboard have also organized a "Penalty Flag Day" for the Jets' home finale against the Patriots on Dec. 21. This week, 10,000 "protest towels" that resemble penalty flags will be handed out in New York and New Jersey area bars to anyone who shows a ticket to the game.
The towels read, "Attention Woody. Fire Glat! Fire Bradway! Fire Idzik! Clean House!" in reference to asking owner Woody Johnson to fire Idzik, team president Neil Glat and senior personnel executive Terry Bradway.
