This appears to be "a process" to appease the fans and not a real GM search
When you persistently insist the opposite, that the Coach < the QB, especially when the coach is staying put for at least 1 more season you are either a troll or a dope. Pick one.
I drank heavily, downed a bottle of anti-depressants, and put my mouth around a tailpipe but unfortunately woke up this morning.
Not all fans 'get' what's going on because they listen to the garbage they are fed by Woody and Rex and think the media is the enemy, not the other way around. You feel bad for these people, but nothing we can do.
Some perspective: We've got a lot of posters here who are between the ages of 25-35. In 1995 they were a mere 7-to-17 years old and just comprehending the NFL. Since that time, we've been averaging 10 wins a season with a healthy quarterback, almost an elite AFC team by all standards. These 30-somethings simply don't know what it's like to have a really bad team and to make things worse they are used to us making a coaching change or a QB change and POOF! like magic we are back in contention.
That's why they scream for Sanchez' head as if it's Testaverde '02 or Pennington '08 or Favre '09. That's why they like Rex's act and don't want it to end. They just don't realize that we are decimated on the lines and have no playmakers, not a situation that ever happened since 2002 in these parts.
These fans simply don't know what you and I know. Two years from now, they'll get it.
Rex Ryan is 50, has been in the NFL for 25 years, has reached his ceiling, isn't going to change.
Mark Sanchez just turned 26, has been in the NFL for 4 years, hasn't reached his potential, has never been coached properly, and has the possibility to improve.
Mark has done more with very little than Rex has with very much. Rex is in control of everything, and we suck. Mark only controls where the balls go and there aren't enough targets because Rex took them away.
Speaking only for myself, I'm committed to the team and season tickets for 27 more years. I have no issue with that, I'm excited about that.
However, I don't feel good about the 2013 Jets at all therefore dishing out $5,000 for my 4 seats + parking feels very uncomfortable for me, it's just a waste of money. So, like 98% of the other PSL owners, I'll either reluctantly go to a few games or sell the 5 prime contests (NE, MIA, OAK, PIT, NO) for as much as I can and hopefully break even.
There's nothing disloyal in that. If Woody Johnson and Rex Ryan can put me into a position where I actually need to root against our head coach in order for us to improve, he's got to expect that I am not going to support that and will sell my 2013 seats to whoever wants them, enemy fans included.

Anyone think Woody will lower the ST prices this year? I read somewhere that an owner once did this due to the poor performance of his team the year before. It would go a long way with the fan base and we all know he can afford it.:loveme::loveme::loveme::loveme::loveme:
Seems to me there is no problem in UD. Technically there are no seasonticketholders in the UD.
It is year to year commitments. When bill comes you pay or dont pay. Currently those folks have not paid anything towards 2013.
Folks in the PSL non-club seats, 2013 is no big deal. We have somewhat low ticket prices. We can afford to eat a few bad years.
I think one concern for Jets is Club Seat Ticket prices. Mezz Clubs, Coaches Club, the season ticket prices are killers. One cannot afford too many bad seasons with those ticket prices. Folks might even walk away from fully paid off season tickets.
How Coaches Club is $300 a ticket higher than Great Hall Club is beyond me. How Mezz Prime is same price as Great Hall Club but no free food is even more confusing.
Screw those in the UL. We the PSL owners are paying our dues. If there are lowered ticket and or parking prices in 2013 it should be for US, not those in the Upper Level.
However, I'm sure there won't be lowered LL/MZ prices and instead all we'll get is that half off parking if you pay with a debit card/check, crap. Frankly, we deserve more.
What I think should be done with that crappy stadium is, have a retractable roof installed and tarp off the entire upper deck just for the Jets games(Giants don`t have the problems the Jets have with ticket sales, plus they wouldn`t be allowed to use the retractable because they are the ones who wanted this craphole the way it is). That will leave 55,000 PSL seats ONLY for Jets games. Tickets will be at a premium if anyone without a PSL wants to go. Maybe even the Coaches Club seats will finally sell out along with the other expensive club seats that didn`t sell. The only time the Jets will ever need to use the UD will be for playoff games. Which is unlikely for them to have at home. On average, the Jets have a home playoff game about once every 7 years. Will this idea I have help Woody? Nope. He`ll still be looking at 27,000 tarped off seats every home game if all the other seats sell out.
I think my idea is what the Jets may have to resort to eventually, not because rich people are throwing their money away because they want to and poor people aren`t spending thiers on the Jets. It has nothing to do with who has money to waste and who doesn`t want to waste it.
Even without a retractable roof, the Jets should simply tarp off the entire UD leaving only PSL seats available. It`ll be the best thing to happen to PSL owners since being given the opportunity to pay for upclose parking spots. You guys would make a killing on ticket brokering. I`m sure it will kill Woody to see the entire UD(27,000)not for sale but I think it will help sell the thousands of unsold PSLs available right now. Once the entire PSL seats are sold out, Woody can than kick everyone in their asses and open up the UD just stick to you even more. LOL I can easily see that happening.
I still think it would be the best move the Jets can do to help sell tickets. Not that I really care either but it`s probably the best move Woody can make right now before everyone says screw it.
