Dyer: He May Be Gone, But Pernetti’s Work Continues To Live On At Rutgers

Pernetti is not forgotten at Rutgers, and on days like Saturday when a Saeed Blacknall verbals to the program, it is clear that his work continues to live on.

Dyer: Rex Ryan’s Run With The Bulls Might Pay Off

The Jets aren’t known for winning, but under Ryan they’ve done just enough of that to make themselves relevant

Dyer: What Disgraced Rutgers Needs Is For Tim Pernetti To Return As AD

Heading into its final year in the Big East — scratch that, the American Athletic Conference — Rutgers needs to set the ship aright and do it quickly. What it needs is for Tim Pernetti to return as athletic director.

Dyer: Don’t Rush Geno! Jets Need To Resist Temptation With Rookie QB

Though the initial returns are good, it’s too early to claim there’s a quarterback controversy in Jets-land — and there shouldn’t be one this season involving Geno Smith.

Dyer: I Hate To Break It To You, But The Jets Are No Longer A Circus

The selection of Geno Smith was labeled as just the latest gaffe by a Jets team, as just more evidence that this team and management in particular is a “circus.” That line of thinking is now a thing of the past. It isn’t the case around this team anymore.

Dyer: Tim Tebow Stood Tall Through The Jets’ Fall

The Jets lost more than a backup quarterback or even a potential starting quarterback on Monday. They lost a reminder of what exactly it means to be a man of character and conviction, whether it is convenient or not.

If Revis decides after next year that he wants another big payday, then the Jets will be left with no Revis and no compensation were he to depart via free agency.

Dyer: The Jets’ ‘Mess’ Extends Well Beyond Tim Tebow

The next time a Tebow becomes available, this new general manager has to look at the possibilities with calmness and a clear-cut plan on how to utilize such a player. If not, then he should simply move on.

Dyer: Jets Need Bold Change — The Anti-Tannenbaum

Here on “Black Monday” as the team clears out its lockers, the Jets must clear out the dead weight from this season. It started with the removal of Tannenbaum.

Dyer: Jets Slap Tebow In The Face

Tim Tebow deserved this opportunity to start on Sunday but instead fear ruled the decision. Fear of what Tebow in his unconventional style might do. Fear that Jets fans will see the fraud of Sanchez and clamor for more Tebow.

Dyer: Firing Rex Ryan Would Set The Jets Back

Heads will likely roll this offseason, but Jets fans must be out of their minds to consider trashing head coach Rex Ryan. In fact, this might be the finest coaching job he’s done in his time in New York.

Dyer: Jets-Braylon Edwards Marriage Sends Wrong Message

Signing Braylon Edwards sends a dangerous message to the rest of the Jets’ locker room.

Dyer: Rutgers, Pernetti Set To Touch The ‘Skai’ With Big Ten Switch

Rutgers landed Skai Moore in large part because Pernetti was able to do the impossible and get Rutgers out from the sinking ship that was (and is) the Big East, and into a power player in college football.

Dyer: Jets’ Signing Of Braylon Edwards Shows Lack Of Direction

The fact that the team’s management caved in to the pressure of fans and media to re-sign a player who wasn’t ever a part of their future after 2012 is a sign that this team lacks direction at the top.

Dyer: Jets’ Key? KISS — Keep It Simple, Sanchez

It may be a waste of money to ask Mark Sanchez to manage games. But if he wants to take the Jets to the postseason, he can’t be asked to make plays.
