“This was, for an opening press conference, somewhere between awful and disappointing,” Francesa said. “It was not (a) disaster, but it was close. It was anything but forceful … Nothing in anything you heard would make anybody confident.”
“He owns the team,” a source told the New York Post in regard to Woody Johnson. “All he had to do was say ‘no.’ Nothing is ever forced on Woody.”
Gang Green continues to draw attention to itself, and Deadspin.com reported on Tuesday that Jets head coach Rex Ryan was in an auto accident last week in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
“(It’s a) serious organizational issue at the heart of the Jets’ culture,” one executive told Metro. “I’m not sure if, with all due respect, that what Mr. Johnson is saying adds up.”
Former Denver Broncos executive Ted Sundquist, who interviewed with the Jets for their vacant general manager position, reportedly said that team owner Woody Johnson said that Tim Tebow was “forced” on both him and team president Neil Glat.
Vick and Mornhinweg had issues this past season, according to a report, and neither the four-time Pro Bowler nor the newly-hired offensive coordinator have any desire to continue their working relationship with the Jets.
Gang Green plans to announce its new general manager by Thursday, league sources told CBS Sports. The website reported that all of the finalists will conclude their interviews on Wednesday.
“I don’t have any regrets,” Tebow said. “I believe everything happens for a reason. I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future, and in that there is a lot of peace and a lot of comfort.”
“(Rex Ryan) got up there and said, ‘Hey, I feel like it’s day one! Forget the last four years. I got Mr T. to take the hit for that. I feel like I just got here! I feel like it’s day one!’ Wait, how is it day one? You’ve been here for four years!”
“I’ve come to the conclusion it’s just cheaper to go to road games and buy home games through StubHub,” Kenny Scarabaggio, a season-ticket holder since 1983, said. “This whole PSL process was a rip-off.”
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel for Tim and how it went down,” Jets defensive end Mike DeVito told WFAN co-hosts Evan Roberts and Joe Benigno. “… I think (if) you put Tim in there, I think we win games. I really believe that.”
According to a report, coach Rex Ryan wanted the backup quarterback to be more involved all season, but offensive coordinator Tony Sparano was opposed to it.
The decision to start Sanchez isn’t about Tebow, of course. It’s about the Jets, as always, and their penchant for punting all the goodwill and luster that they muster. And that’s because they do almost everything for the wrong reason every season.
Is Bill Parcells the perfect man to fix the mess that the Jets are currently in? He might be, as current general manager Mike Tannenbaum’s job isn’t safe, according to league sources
The former first-round pick, who was acquired this offseason to back up Sanchez, will request to be traded or released after the season if McElroy starts the final game of the year, according to a report.
