Rex Ryan still pictures himself raising the Lombardi Trophy as a Super Bowl champion. Whether he gets another opportunity to try to deliver that title with the New York Jets remains to be seen.
With a total housecleaning coming for the Jets, we bring to you an animated Mike Francesa raging against the Green machine.
There have been conflicting reports about the GM’s fate. But according to the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta, the front office has been a mess since Idzik has taken over.
One more week. One final game. That’s all that might be left in Rex Ryan’s tenure as coach of the Jets, with his future uncertain beyond Sunday’s season finale.
Is total regime change on the horizon? It’s starting to look like it.
This isn’t just about Fan Guy or the Jets’ current plunge down the rungs of relevance. This isn’t even about the gritty game they played Sunday. It’s about the zero sum reality of pro football and the Jets’ unwillingness to abide by it.
This latest loss to rival New England certainly didn’t make the Jets’ faithful — or coach Rex Ryan and GM John Idzik — feel any better about their situation.
Websites. Twitter accounts. Banners. Billboards. Towels. And now Christmas cards.
Picture this: Small planes carrying banners circling the workplaces of each of those involved in the “Fire John Idzik” campaign, stating their personal failures.
The banner’s message is in reference to “Penalty Flag Day,” scheduled for Sunday’s final home game against the New England Patriots.
An angry Jets fans tweeted at owner Woody Johnson, encouraging him to fire general manager John Idzik. Johnson hit the “favorite” button before realizing what he did and undoing it.
Leading the reported crusade to find the Jets’ next head coach is Woody Johnson, which makes sense. What doesn’t make any sense is his wingman on the endeavor, general manager John Idzik.
Idzik, in just his second season as the general manager, might be fired by Johnson after the year, though Ryan’s seat appears hotter.
Woody Johnson told the Daily News he’s still unsure whether Rex Ryan or John Idzik will be employed by the close of business on Dec. 29, one day after the Jets’ final game.
With three games left, the race is on. Next Sunday could play a big part in deciding things with the Jets playing the lowly Titans in Tennessee.
