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.

“That was surely overblown,” Idzik said on Mike & Mike. “I have a son playing. That time is special. . . . It doesn’t last and you’ve got to take advantage of family time whenever you get it.”

Idzik said he and Ryan had already discussed everything they needed to discuss to evaluate their 53-man roster before Ryan left the facility, and Idzik is glad that Ryan could be there.

“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.”
