NEW YORK, N.Y. - A few frustrated — and creative — New York Jets fans have created a website urging the team to fire general manager John Idzik just 24 games into his tenure.

FireJohnIdzik.com is a creation of a few season ticket holders as the Jets are off to a 1-7 start that includes seven straight losses. It highlights the "Idzik Hall of Shame," criticizing some of the GM's moves, such as signing Mike Goodson and Dimitri Patterson.

The fans are trying to raise money to put up a billboard in the vicinity of MetLife Stadium to push their cause, and are selling T-shirts with "Fire John Idzik" printed on them.

Coach Rex Ryan says Friday he understands that "nobody is happy," but adds that winning will "subside some of the other stuff."
