It's so funny watching the young fans make such a hard stance on the doings of the NFL.
He's had 4 years to learn. Oh yeah? That's it huh? That's all he gets? Because you say so? LOL
The DC leaks are complete rumors, nobody knows the truth on that, nobody knows what went down. It was rather telling to watch Ray Lucas' response when Manish's name was brought up, it's obvious this guy is a rat, and there are a LOT of people who have a problem with that hack, players, coaches, and even his own peers. It took another weasel in Gary Myers to come to his defense.
The unpreparedness is a joke, it's just not true. When the team turns over the ball as much as it did this year, and really, the last two, that changes everything, including preparation. Preparation goes out the window when they are forced to change their game plan so often and quickly with self-inflicted wounds due to turnovers.
There is NO way you or anybody can predict what is going to happen next year. Saying they won't is complete crap. It's certainly possible, but you cannot guarantee that, so why bother? Are there question marks for next year? Yep, quite a bit, but every year is a new year, even for the teams that go through drastic changes. Look no further than the Colts team this year, they had every monumental challenge against them, including losing their coach to cancer, look where they are?
Pull the plug, and for who? You don't have an answer, just your chest out high and your foot-stomping, and nothing more.

With the Jets being stuck in the mud for at least another year, we will probably have to wait that much longer.
As rumored the GM hire will have a lot to do with Rex future. A GM that will tell him to stfu about players and drafting, and go coach, may just be the best thing for him and the organization.
I'm sitting here shaking my head at all of the folks on the site who have swallowed the garbage being churned out by the NYDN and other sources.
I'm not going to link to give this hack more hits, but can we turn a critical eye to what stands as the foundation of some of these articles?
So let's break this down. The NYDN quotes an "NFL source." What does that mean? Are we talking an assistant scout in Oakland? An accountant in the NFL offices in NYC? A trainer for the Giants? So as news consumers, we're supposed to take the phrase "NFL source" seriously and care? AYFKM?Now Johnson is going to try to make it work by hiring a more skilled personnel man than Tannenbaum to run the football operation and rebuild the Jets, but making him keep Ryan, who all of a sudden appears to be a lame duck. “I think, personally, Rex would love to be fired,” one NFL source said Monday. “He knows it’s over.”
And to top it off, this person is offering up his personal thoughts: "Rex would love to be fired." There's not the slightest hint he knows Rex, or has any contact to the organization. How's that different than asking any commentator's opinion? Or any fan's?
There's no factual basis for this statement -- except for this garbage - "he knows it's over." Is this source a mindreader?
Maybe this is a person who knows Rex. Maybe it's another GM; or coach. If so, I might take it more seriously, in light of the fact that I'm sure there's a lot of info that passes around at the top levels of NFL leadership. But an "NFL source"? Sorry, NYDN, I'm not buying.
Rex deserves his share of criticism and there's an argument to be made that he deserves to go, but this kind of trash is no better than TMZ style journalism and yet I read posts here where people take this so seriously. We're seeing the absolute worst kind of journalism -- the kind of stuff that I'd expect from 3rd rate blogs -- infecting the Jets beat.
You guys want to keep being played? Enjoy.
I'm done with the NYDN.
I can only speak for myself and I can say that my thoughts on this are not fueled by emotion. I've had 4 years to look at and watch Rex Ryan and my conclusion is that he's not head coach material.
Even if he's surrounded by great personnel and coordinators, I am not confident in his abilities and overall decision-making on game day.
I like an emotional coach as much as anyone. I love John Tortorella's style. But unlike Rex, Totorella seems to know when to push the right buttons at the right time and how to manage a game.
Say what you want about Fatty but he would not stick his neck out like this. And not one member of the Jets or the press has refuted it. Mehta was asked point blank on SNY and he didn't refute it.
these talking heads all claim to know what was gin on at the jets. fact is they have no clue and are grasping. is it logical to assume that rex had some control over the players that tannenbaum brought in? yes. is it also logical that mangini had some control of the players that tannenbaum brought in? again a yes. how about choosing olmes over edwards? but the devil is in the degree of control. did mangini buy into the whole favre thing? ow about gholston? rex is on record about sanchez but what about brunnel as back up? who was the guy that forced pete kendall into the rookie barracks at camp during mangini's second year? and was sparano the choice before or after tebow mania? rex does deserve some responsibility but it's hard to separate the on field coaching ability with whatever goes on in the back room.
here's to hoping rex can do the coaching. imo the next gm will learn very quickly it's woody's team. if he has any trepidations about working with rex he shouldn't take the job.
