    HE made the personal decision that his football career would only be important UNTIL he started acting full time. Then it didn't matter. And even before that, he would give what effort he deemed to be ENOUGH.

    Sherry has no one to blame but himself.
    Exactly... Safeties that don't tackle are worthless especially to a guy like Rex

    When we replaced that worthless cover safety with a tackling safety our defense was decidedly worse. With all of Rex's complaining the guy started 14 games for the best defense the Jets ever fielded. The guy was an excellent player for the Jets and did pretty well with AZ.

    So he should just live with half A$$ effort?

    He should be DEMANDING 100% effort out of all of his other players, but only what Sherry CHOOSES to give for effort on any given day?

    That's called a double standard and that is BS.

    I guess Eric Smith was a better choice.....Guy can tackle when he actually gets to the ball carrier but got burned by average white tight ends on the reg

    Kerry Rhodes was a damn good cover safety which is way more important.....He also was a playmaker and gamechanger with a lot of strip sacks and int's for us

    Guys who can play, play. We don't pay guys on effort we pay them on results.

    In a competition the better player plays and Rhodes giving little to no effort was substantially better than Leonard or Smith. Effort doesn't get anyone a paycheck. Results do.

    I wish I still had my Kerry Rhodes jersey. I tried to sell it on ebay a few years back and eventually just got rid of it.. i think the market for it just went up in certain neighborhoods of nyc..

    Meanwhile, I'm sure all 30 teams that Rhodes has not played for feel just the same way as you do.

    If you know said player has better effort to give and you choose to let him off the hook?

    You choose to poison your locker room. You choose to create a cancerous locker room.

    RR even went so far as to bench Sherry when he knew he wasn't giving 100%. Benched him for two games at the end of the 2009 season. In other words, he gave him a chance to improve.

    Then, Sherry responded by coming back and playing GREAT in the postseason. RR knew all along that Sherry was lazy.

    Then, the offseason came along and it was likely decided that the two should part ways.

    That's because RR wants to surround himself with players that WANT TO WIN.

    He STILL has great talent even today. But if you don't bring it, you create a problem for EVERY other player on the team.

    You would think that should come across as COMMON SENSE to you?

    Kerry Rhodes played in every game the NY Jets played while a member of this team and started all but 2. He started every game he was healthy in for the Cardinals.

    Rex made Holmes a Captain.

    Rex Ryan has been part of 4 NY Jets teams and the talent has gone down every year since he has been HC. The defense has not been going up it's been going down. Want to win. Every player wants to win.

    Your agenda and hate are obvious.

    Would be good if Kerry was the only change to the D from 09 on.

    That would be a very simplistic and inaccurate

    He had the talent to be a difference maker and wasn't too often.

    Now it's the HC's responsibility to act as GM too?

    I'm not as down on Tanny as many of you guys are, but surely you can't blame Rex for scouting colleges all while coaching The Jets

    Maybe you should look in the mirror when you throw around "agenda and hate" when talking about Rex

    Agenda and hate?

    This thread is about Sherry Rhodes, NOT what you perceive as Rex Ryan's failures.

    So riddle me this Ruth Bader Ginsburg...

    WHY do you think Sherry doesn't have a job right now?

    Rhodes and every safety in the nfl was 100 times better than Eric smith in coverage. He absolutely lost games on his own, he became terribly slow in 10/11 seasons before Rex finally admitted to himself he was too slow to be a starting SS. Leonard was a very solid free safety- you can't say Rhodes was better than him all around. Leonard was very solid tackler, always chased down guys who best smith or Cro. Was good not great in coverage, but his biggest importance was being the field general with calling coverages and getting everyone in front of him in line..Rhodes was not same type of leader out there and he tackled like shhit..

    Coaches coach.

    GMs bring in talent, sign talent, keep the talent.

    You're blaming the wrong guy. Rex has his issues, every coach does but it's just not fair to blame him for that talent fall off. Funny no one gives him all the credit for the 09 and 10 D units.

    From what I remember about the 2009 season regarding "The Results" with Kerry Rhodes:

    Rhodes didn't know his assignment in a MNF game with Miami. Tedd Ginn blew right by him for a 40+ yrd TD. The Jets lost by less than a TD.

    Rhodes didn't know his assignment in a game with Jax. Mercedes Lewis blew by him in the seam for a big play helping close out a Jax win.

    (I believe he lost his starting job after that).

    Rhodes didn't know his assignment at the end of the 1st half of the AFC Championship Game leading to a 4 play 80 yd drive in which a TD pass was completed to exactly where Kerry was supposed to be.

    The Results speak for themselves and is why Rex/Pettine jettisoned the guy. He simply couldn't be trusted.

    Agree 100%...especially if their sexual orientation isn't a fit for the 3-4 hybrid defense!

    Rhodes wasted his talents by not giving it his all. He was still productive, but could of been one of the best NYJ safeties in my lifetime as a Jets fan if he gave it as much effort as his acting career.
