It all turned for the worse after that Giants game last year. He put so much emphasis on that game for no reason, how "this game is for NY", and losing that game killed whatever swagger we had since the beginning of his tenure. He's lost the locker room and after all of his talk this past offseason on how this team was going to get the chemistry back...it's never happened.
If there's a defining moment in time that ended the Rex Ryan Jets, it occurred in Week 10 last year at home against the Patriots.
Going into that game, the Jets were 5-3 and Ryan had boasted about how this was the time we were finally going to pass the Patriots and take control of the division. How it was "our time" and the team was going to "step up", all that crap. And, as usual, we got blown out.
Going into that game, we were on a 25-11 streak, including a span where we went 16-4.
Since that game, the Jets are 6-11.
