Dyer: Not For Nothing, NFL, But New Jersey Is Not New York City’s 6th Borough

This is being billed as New York City’s Super Bowl even though most of the players on the Broncos and the Seahawks won’t step foot outside of New Jersey this week.

Dyer: #KeepRex — The Fans Have Spoken, And They Want Ryan Back

With even an average quarterback, dare the name of Sanchez be inserted here, the Jets would be a much better team.

Dyer: You Simply Can’t Fire Rex Ryan For This Latest Mess

Ryan can’t be blamed for this latest disaster on offense. His defense, despite a massive overhaul and youth movement, is still clicking relatively well. But an offense that is simply putrid shouldn’t be his fault.

Dyer: It’s Time For Rex To Be Consistent And Bench Geno Smith

The New York Jets are on the cusp of a remarkable season – one that could be squandered if their head coach doesn’t belly up to the bar and make some tough decisions.

Dyer: Reed Signing Signals That Jets Are Rebuilding No More

What was supposed to be a rebuilding year has instead made a complete and total turn. The Jets are now pointed up and the signing of Reed proves it.

Dyer: Jets Finally With A Homefield Advantage? They’re Getting There

Due to some vision from team president Neil Glatt and general manager John Idzik, both of whom get where the Jets fan base currently is and where it needs to go, the team is taking steps towards a true homefield advantage and a true sense of community.

Dyer: Possible Statement Game Looms in Rex Ryan’s Best Year

Emerging from Week 6 with a win would validate Ryan’s coaching job this season. It would also validate him as a head coach against one of the best in the game.

Dyer: Rex Ryan Should Be Applauded, Not Criticized, For Clemson Trip

Leaving on cut-down day took courage, and while it might undercut his standing in the organization, Ryan chose family over football — and that is always the right call from the playbook.

Over the next 48 hours, New York Jets general manager John Idzik will have the chance to prove that he was the right hire seven months ago to finally reverse the curse on this franchise.

Dyer: Red Bulls’ Petke Personifies NY Sports More Than Any Coach In The City

Petke proved why we love him and why he is the personification of New York sports, more than any other coach in this city. Petke didn’t back down, just like a true New Yorker.

Dyer: Geno Smith Just Won The Jets’ QB Battle

Without so much as taking a single snap on Saturday night, Geno Smith became the future of the Jets franchise for the simple reason that he isn’t Mark Sanchez.

Dyer: Memo to Jets Fans — Don’t Boo Mark Sanchez

with a new season and a fresh slate, Mark Sanchez doesn’t deserved to be booed.
