For all those Rex Ryan apologists...ehm supporters



Ian O'Conner is dead on with this assessment:

quote:

Rex Ryan should have been fired, too, as he is no less responsible for the state of the New York Jets than is his former business partner, Mike Tannenbaum, the general manager thrown to the baying wolves by an owner who had no choice.


quote:

So Ryan got better than he deserved from his boss, who released a statement saying that the consulting firm of Korn/Ferry International will help him find Tannenbaum's replacement, and that Ryan deserves to remain the head coach because "he has the passion, the talent, and the drive to successfully lead our team." On what planet, Woody? And in what league? Whether it's being ultra-late to discover a player's injury, or being oblivious to the fact an insubordinate star was benched by an assistant (see the Santonio and Schotty show, Miami, Week 17, 2011 season), Ryan is forever the last to know what's happening with his team.


quote:

Ryan's program is out of control, and Tannenbaum is hardly the only one to blame for that. Ryan has been a big voice in the drafting and acquiring of talent, or non-talent. Rex was neck-deep in the night moves Tannenbaum made to land Mark Sanchez on the eve of the 2009 draft, and he was right in there with the hiring of Tony Sparano, too. Widely hailed (especially by himself) as the man everyone wants to play for, Ryan watched the Jets quit on him over the final three weeks of 2011, and again over the final three weeks of 2012. If the players truly wanted to spare their beloved coach from Tannenbaum's fate, they sure had the funniest way of showing it. The Jets closed the season by losing to three wretched opponents, and that isn't even the half of it. Ryan has shown no ability for developing quarterbacks, even one (Sanchez) he positively had to have out of college, a singular truth that should've been enough to scare Johnson into sacking him.


quote:

All in all, the head coach's judgment has been as bad as his team's performance, as bad as Tannenbaum's hires. So even though Woody Johnson gave him a reprieve, Rex Ryan should understand this: He didn't deserve one.


Rexy does it again!

Rex must have some damn good negatives in a safety deposit box.

This is ridiculous. The Jets were falling apart when he came to town. And, when he got to NY, he was handed an aging team with a young quarterback. The front office wouldn't beef up the O-line after letting go of the veteran O-linemen. Rex needed offensive players, and they go out and get him over the hill receivers on parole. Rex still has managed to make the Jets one of the best defenses in the NFL. I think he has what it takes to make the Jets playoff contenders again, but it starts with the front office.

So if you are the Jets what do you do at the QB position?

-Do you draft a QB and let Rex and a TBD OC try to develop him?

-Trade Draft picks for another teams backup?

-Do you go out an sign a FA QB? But then you would be committing $20 million of you cap to that position.

-Go with Sanchez again?
quote:

The Jets will likely be hard-pressed to trade or cut Sanchez, who is due $8.25 million in guarantees next season his contract extension. He would cost the Jets a $17.1 million salary cap hit next season if he is cut, but New York could spread that amount over the next two seasons if he is released after June 1.

this right here should keep you from ever having any type of power in a front office ever again. can you imagine having that stapled to your resume??
