The new general manager will not be able to run the Jets as he sees fit. The new general manager will have to live with Ryan as head coach for another season. That means the Jets’ rebuilding project will take a full year longer than it should.
The Jets have three games to go. They could very well win all three but still not make the playoffs. But they have the right approach, maybe for the first time in a long time.
“The locker room is so confident, guys are so confident,” DeVito said. “I have no doubt that we can win these three games, and then we’ll see wherever the chips fall.”
Ryan’s swagger made for plenty of headlines during his first three seasons in New York. Now, it’s what the coach doesn’t say that raises some eyebrows.
Don’t look now — the Jets could have a respectable record and a chance at the playoffs when it’s all said and done. But is it realistic to think they’ll have a shot?
The NFL season has not even reached the halfway point, but the fire under the seat of 10 head coaches is already quite hot.
Seven weeks into the season the Eagles have fired their defensive coordinator and the Panthers have fired their GM. Atlanta remains the league’s only unbeaten team, and only three AFC teams have winning records.
Peyton Manning led the Broncos to a historic, improbable comeback over the Chargers after being down 24-0 at halftime.
The Jets are not going to win the division, but they can take baby steps, and that will put them in contention for an AFC Wild Card spot. It looks hopeless right now, but the schedule makers have given them a chance to rise up out of the muck.
Houston has put the rest of the AFC on notice with their smothering defense and balanced, high-scoring offense. The Jets? Well, that’s another story.
The superstar cornerback is out this season with a torn knee ligament which he suffered in Week 3. But that won’t dissuade the Jets’ decision-makers from trying to ink the 27-year-old to a long-term contract, according to a report.
If Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow don’t get it done in the red zone, the Jets can turn to Greg McElroy. After all, he was the only quarterback to lead the Jets to a touchdown this preseason.
The New York Jets have become nothing but a bad soap opera.
Jets fans saw it firsthand last night. No, not the Tim Tebow show. The main story last night was the Cincinnati Bengals, and the disasters that loom for all teams in preseason.
The New York Giants have been ranked third in the first-ever AP Pro32 NFL power rankings, a new pro football version of the AP Top 25 college football and basketball polls.
