Don’t expect Mark Sanchez to go the way of Tim Tebow. The quarterback apparently won’t have much trouble finding a job if he’s cut by the Jets this offseason.
Rex Ryan went from the hot seat to some job security. Well, at least through the next two seasons. “I’m glad to be a Jet. I’m happy to be a Jet. That’s never changed,” the coach said Thursday.
As far as Antonio Cromartie is concerned, Jets general manager John Idzik should not be putting too much effort into looking for a quarterback this offseason. That’s because Cromartie sees Geno Smith as the present and future of the franchise.
Now we know why the Jets hired John Idzik as GM a year ago. He’s a get-along guy. He wants to get along with owner Woody Johnson, and he wants to have a comfortable working relationship with Rex Ryan.
“We will always look to improve every position in any manner we can and that doesn’t change going into 2014,” John Idzik said. “We’ll look at quarterbacks. Yes, we’ll look at quarterbacks.”
Wednesday is as good a day as any to lay out five real truths concerning our two football teams. No phony resolutions, but real things that have happened or need to be done in order to avoid a repeat of a sad, unproductive 2013.
Ryan is “comfortable” with his current contract, although the New York Jets’ coach and general manager John Idzik would not address questions about whether an extension is in the works.
Rex Ryan may get an extension from the New York Jets. But it won’t be of the long-term variety, according to Ian Rapoport and Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network.
For all the hoopla that’s followed Rex Ryan around, a lot has not been made of John Idzik and the serious task facing this largely unknown general manager going forward.
The postgame cheer from inside the Jets’ locker room could be heard in the stadium hallways. The reason for the roar: New York was keeping its coach.
Gang Green will watch the playoffs on television for the third straight year, but head coach Rex Ryan will return in 2014. And that’s a good thing.
Jets owner Woody Johnson made a good decision. That’s saying a lot for an organization that has made way too few of those over the years.
Following the Jets’ 20-7 victory over the Miami Dolphins, Jets owner Woody Johnson announced that head coach Rex Ryan will return in 2014.
According to an NFL executive, the Jets will likely opt to bring back Rex Ryan. Neither general manager John Idzik nor owner Woody Johnson have commented on the head coach’s job security.
Rex Ryan won’t take satisfaction if the Jets eliminate the Dolphins. “If you’re not in it, it really doesn’t matter,” Ryan said. “The fact that you’re not in it is painful enough. You’re not going to derive pleasure from knocking someone out.”
