    Steve Serby KILLING Rex Ryan - "RexGate" In Full Swing

    Steve Serby
    Talk to us, Rex.

    Come out, come out, wherever you are.

    Tell us how you feel now that your trusted crony GM Mike Tannenbaum, is gone, and a new GM is on his way.

    Tell us whether you still want to coach your team, and only your team, now that seven other teams need a new head coach.

    Tell us whether Woody Johnson is right when he says you have the passion, drive and desire to lead his team.

    Your silence is deafening.

    Tell us whether you are all in at a time when your GM/crony, your offensive coordinator, your special teams guru and maybe your defensive coordinator/crony may all be all out.

    Tell us why you say that a lot of Jets fans want you gone. Tell us whether you meant that as a message to the owner. Tell us you didn’t intend it as a death wish.

    Tell us whether you feel guilty you survived and Tannenbaum didn’t, since he didn’t make a football decision without leaning heavily on you first.

    Tell us how you feel entering a season when the owner expects you to make a serious run for the first New York Super Bowl in the stadium he shares with John Mara and Steve Tisch.

    Tell us how you feel knowing a third straight season out of the playoffs will spell your doom.

    Tell us how you feel about being a lame duck, because there is no contract extension to discuss when you have won six of your past 19 games.

    Talk to us, Rex.

    Come out, come out, wherever you are.

    There have been no inside leaks from the Deep Throat(s) in your midst about any sudden bout of laryngitis. So what’s the story, Rex?

    Do you feel the walls closing in on you?

    Are you having nightmares about kissing Bill Belichick’s rings after all?

    Have you given up on the idea the Giants are the Jets’ little brother?

    Have you given up on the idea Mark Sanchez is a franchise quarterback? Or do you have a plan that can somehow get him off his butt?

    Or are you reading the handwriting on the wall in a conference where Peyton Manning and Tom Brady will be standing in your way again?

    Has it sunk in that winning is now much more important to the owner than selling hot dogs, that it is no longer enough for you to shove the Giants off the back page of the tabloids with bluster and bravado and just being Rex? That he didn’t sign up to look his fellow owners in the eye — especially Mara and Tisch — knowing his team has become a buttfumble laughingstock?

    Tell us your plans for the Wildcat next season. On second thought, spare us.

    Are you shaken by the cold shoulder the owner has given you lately? Didn’t he seem a lot different during the good old days, when you were the star of “Hard Knocks”? When he was quick to forgive your indiscretions and overlook your peccadillos?

    When you called your wife on “Hard Knocks” and asked her not to shop too much after you informed her the owner had given you an amazing raise.

    Are you grateful the owner kept you even though you had a worse season than Eric Mangini did when he was whacked?

    Is the only thing that keeps you from telling the owner to take this job and shove it the $6 million he owes you?

    Or does any part of you now want to sing Auld Lang Syne to what is no longer the dream job it was four years ago? Does any part of you think you can score another part in the next Adam Sandler movie? Do you think you can be — BOOM! — this generation’s John Madden, perhaps?

    What gives, Rex? Remember how you left that personal recorded message to season-ticket holders before the home game against the Patriots four Septembers ago? Jets Nation has endured enough across the last 44 years. Your fans deserve to hear from their head coach when the season ends.

    Tough times don’t last, tough people do. You’re no longer the talk of the town. And all of a sudden, you’re no longer talking.

    You’re letting imaginations and conspiracy theories run wild this way.

    Most ominously, has the owner ordered you to shut up, leaving you twisting in the wind in limbo? Is there some sinister RexGate unfolding, the possibility of an unseemly end game that will be sold as a mutual parting of the ways?

    Talk to us, Rex.

    Come out, come out, wherever you are.

    It would be stupid of Rex to say anything other than he was disappointed in the season because until a new GM gets here he should not and can not say where the team needs to go or what he would like to do. Saying anything now would automatically start the relationship with the new GM on bad ground. Serby is jackass of the highest order and is one reason the Post makes good kitty litter

    If they are going to fire Rex, I'd prefer the new GM do it instead of the loudmouth tabloid columnists.

    If Korn/Ferry is advising Woody on Cones Of Silence, yikes.

    Ironic, Rex talks and everyone says he needs to keep his mouth shut take care of his business.
    When Rex for whatever reason, keeps his mouth shut and allows the search process for a new GM to take its course, all the media gets upset because he is not talking.

    Talk about a rock and a hard place, Rex just needs to pull a Tuna next season. Give them nothing and tell every member of the Jets, players, coaches and FO to do the same.

    Serby is the most amateurish sports writer I can recall on the metro NFL scene in quite a while. I find his writing to be clumsy and insipid. But, I agree with the sentiment of firing Rex.

    If I'm Rex, my socks are feeling awfully tight right now.

    Perfect.

    Can't believe that article consitutes journalism.

    There are posters here who write better than than Serby. He's worse than Cimini.

    Rex, please don't say anything to these sleaze. Tell then only what the Nfl requires you to tell them. One of the things i like about Rex is he's obviously a friendly guy, who likes people. He needs to realize these media sharks couldn't give a damn about him or his players. Hope he realizes that now. Read what there writing Rex. Still want to trat them with respect, like there your friends or something

    You lie with pigs you get dirty. He wanted the jets to be the media's friends, by making himself available and the whole team also, in order to curry favor with them.

    Now the writers are being told by their bosses to get get the story as they have in the past. Well Rex is not co-operating and they are pissed. If rex is not going to be their friend maybe the next one will?

    So in how many years will it be fair to expect Rex not to go into a game with one QB? In how many years will he learn to become involved in the offense. How many years is he going to let Sanchez flush down the toilet?

    The issues with Rex are multiple.

    Maybe he is a remedial learner. Maybe we have a "special" coach.

    His dad was praised and vilified in the press for years, he grew up with it there was nothing for him to learn. IMO he needs to have a press conference, as it appears that he is hiding now, because he was always front and center. When a leopard changes his spots it attracts attention.

    I feel bad for him if the new GM lets him go 2 weeks after all these jobs are filled.

    Did you see the look on rex's face after the Titans game when he walked past Sanchez? If you did, you'll know there will be no more excuses for Sanchez. If he had a legit option, Sanchez woulda been yanked mid season. As for Rex not speaking to the press yet. I believe he's been told by Woody, to wait until a new GM signs on.When that happens, Ryan and the new Gm will hold a joint conference.

    I thought that was an amazing thing to see, the funny thing was that Sanchez was in full chase down the opposing coach ass kiss mode and Rex was probably thinking, "Grow a set, you pvssy"
