Jets dispute Daily News report

FOXBOROUGH, M.A. — The New York Jets released a statement at 2:37 p.m. EST refuting an earlier report from the New York Daily News today that claimed offensive players went to head coach Rex Ryan to complain about offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

The New York Jets deny a report this morning that wide receivers Plaxico Burress, Santonio Holmes and Derrick Mason have gone to head coach Rex Ryan individually in the past few weeks to question offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s system.”

This comes off the heels of well-chronicled offensive deficiencies in their back-to-back losses to the Raiders and Ravens. Holmes and Mason both have showed their frustrations through the media, with Holmes calling out the offensive line and the play of quarterback Mark Sanchez this week. And Mason citing “cracks” in the offense.

For those who follow the Jets, complaints towards Schottenheimer are nothing knew. Fans continually call for his head during stretches like this current run for the Jets. Between the 20’s he can be masterful. But it’s the documented struggles in the red zone that has haunted him and his unit.

As of the current moment, the Jets offensive ranks are as follows: 25th in total yards, 30th in rushing yards, 16th in passing and tied for 23rd in sacks allowed.

    Shotty is terrible! I am not a football expert but it is very obvious he sucks as an offensive co. He continuously gets the jets starting slow. He is unimaginative and under utilizes a group of guys that any OC that was half decent could spread the ball to set up the pass. He’ll I am almost to the point I miss (dare I say) Hackett. Please fire shotty he is making the jets jets become the “Same old Jets”.

    Hello isn’t Moore here over seeing the offense and Callahan brought the Raiders to the Super Bowl. One of these guys can take schottys place and ut is done in house no outsiders. Please the only way to stop this ship from sinking us fix the hole. Sadly the defense is starting to look like they are playing with no hope. That will happen to the best if them when the team all agree that one person is the problem and yet nothing is being done to fix the issue.

    Shotty must go before the season is lost. Promote Moore or Callahan! Please! How many times must we go through this each year?!?!?
