Jets GM calls Rex Ryan “commendable” for taking Clemson trip
Jets General Manager John Idzik told ESPN's Mike & Mike that he does not agree with the national media that have criticized Ryan for watching his son's first college football game against Georgia.

“For him to get a chance to see his son in his first collegiate game, I think, was really special,” he said. “It was a Saturday night game, we did most of our work Friday night and Saturday, and he stayed in touch with us. So it was commendable that Rex was able to do it.”
