Sure I missed a few (dozen) things. But I have to go to work.

Having to teach "Sanchize" how to slide.
The big game booger wipe on Mark Brunnel.
The fact that Brunnell was the backup.
Thinking the team was out of playoff contention in 2009 or 2010.
With 3 games left and at shot at the playoffs, the team collapses. Two years in a row!
Dumbing down the plays for "Sanchize".
Possibly underage girls.
No more team captains rather than confront S Holmes.
No more Jericho.
No more Danny Woodhead.
"The dumbest play in NFL history."
Division rival in last year's Super Bowl.
Rival NY Giants in Super Bowl after Rex said the Jets were no longer the little brother or some such.
Alex Smith (the player that represents Mark Sanchez's ceiling) gets benched and they are in this year's Super Bowl.
Joe Flacco (the guy that routinely got dogged for being worse than Sanchez) leads his team to this year's Super Bowl.
4 years with one of the worse QBs in the league.
Firing everybody but the two people that are failing to execute.
...but it's the media's fault? Brace yourself because if history has taught us anything during Rex Ryan's tenure it's that just when you think things can't get any more embarrassing they do.
And let's not forget the things the Jets have said about each other :
(UPDATED: A quote bonanza, seven more, December 4)
Before we lose track due to the sheer amount of them, let's maintain a list of the words and actions that the team has taken against itself:
signals the alarm after Oakland "You keep telling a player how good he is, he’s going to start believing it to the point that he may not be preparing quite the way he should."
made captain halfway through season.
says "the stupidest play in NFL history.”
says "In reality, Mark kind of got fooled."
"Shut up fat boy."
"When toughest player on team is the coach, you've got problems."
implosion in Miami.
"I was tapped on the shoulder so I came out."
"I wasn't aware of the offense, I was focused on the defense."
points finger "talk to the offense".
flips bird, wants out.
speaks company line.
"leave me alone, won't talk".
cries in front of team.
on Santonio "I don't know that guy."
says "too many captains, that was my big mistake".
"no toughness on this team".
"selfish, corrupt, disconnected locker room."
intimates he's not coming back, needs a win-now team.
article 'unnamed sources' Sanchez lazy.
says "out of touch with team".
says "not going to change, gotta be me."
"they should be (in turmoil)".
"The Maybeast" Intern resigns.
"They created this. This is the type of football team that they wanted."
"Something that happened 3rd or 4th week of season and nobody knew because the players kept it under wraps."
on Rex: "I would prefer him not to say it (calling out other teams) as much as he did."
“I don’t think the whole
locker room was toxic,”
“Basically, he didn’t know a lot of things that were going on behind the scenes. It was just so much stuff. I’m really not going to get into it because some of the stuff is real deep. But he didn’t know a lot of the things. He wanted people to say things to him. But obviously it didn’t come out. It came out on the field.”
“My first thought was, ‘What is going on?"
"Locker room in disarray right now, it's a circus before, will be more of a circus with Tebow now."
“If Sanchez trips (up), then he’ll (Holmes) be on the bench going, ‘Tebow! Tebow!’ like everyone else."
(On whether he's the poster boy for Jets dysfunction) "I don't care."
"(Mark Sanchez) isn't maturing as a leader or a player skill-wise, I haven't seen that."
“It came up in the offseason really, right after the season was over. It was basically what, as a team, could we do better. One of them was conditioning, one of them was focus, and the other one was discipline. And you know, this was a conversation that I think Rex wanted to evaluate himself and see what we could do better as a team.”
"I'm getting our top players into a Leadership Camp."
"I'm taking our team to a Sleep Specialist."
(On Tim Tebow) “It’s not even close,”
(On Tim Tebow) “He’s terrible,”
(On Tim Tebow) “Do I have to answer that question?”
(On Tim Tebow) “We don’t look at him as a quarterback,”
(On Tim Tebow) “We can’t win running that sh--,”
(On Tim Tebow) “Now we’re depending on miracles?”
(On Tim Tebow) “Something where it was just ridiculous. It would take Mark to totally just sh-- the bed and become unglued."
(On Mark Sanchez) “Look at some of the players he’s throwing to, it’s garbage.”
(On Mark Sanchez) “I’ve seen better receiving corps in college than we have on our team.”
(On Tim Tebow) "I made it clear he wasn't going to be our starter. He's our punt protector."
"We're 3-6. I'm with the team in this building every day."
"This week has been a tough week for the team. A team like this, with what's been going on this week, a team will fold."
(On Vlad Ducasse) "Platoon at left guard came from high above me."
"They just don’t understand this organization does everything they can to win games. They bring in great talent, and even better people"
"Quit talking crazy to the media, especially involving your teammates, I think that's the worst, because when you do that, that's when it really gets divided. Because you don't know if you can trust your other teammate."
"Society has lost respect for one another."
"They don't care. They just call us bums. Like they could ever play or can understand the pressure. They are the ones picked last for high school dodge ball, so why explain it?"
"I believe Mark Sanchez can be a championship quarterback as long as he has the right supporting cast, yes I do."
"Don't blame Sanchez. I played there. Blame the idiots calling shots. Mark is a beast and will prove it when given a proper chance."
