The last three years have been a steady decline and he was little more than a situational specialist last season for the Jets behind Geno Smith.
Vick is a free agent after this season, with his one-year deal with the Jets expiring. He hasn’t ruled out returning to New York, but he didn’t sound all that enthusiastic about the possibility, either.
Stories about dissension in the ranks when a team is enduring a terrible season are nothing new. But when it comes to the Jets, they are usually too juicy to sweep under the rug.
“I don’t look at it as me getting benched, first and foremost, to correct you,” the veteran told a reporter. “But if you want to look at it that way, you can.”
Ryan knows Smith can’t win. He knows that drafting him last year was Idzik’s biggest mistake in a long line of them. Ryan may be defiant, but he is not insubordinate.
Let’s be serious. Forget the Raiders and the Rams. Why don’t the Jets just move to Los Angeles? They certainly aren’t serving any purpose here.
After a couple of 8-8 seasons had us thinking that maybe they’re not so far away, there’s no obscuring the Jets’ true status now.
Despite the limited sample size, Michael Vick has done far more than Geno Smith with the Jets’ offense this season and, as a result, deserves the same respect and courtesy next week against the Dolphins.
In a surprising twist, the New York Jets have announced that Geno Smith will get the start at quarterback over Michael Vick for the game against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night.
In his postgame press conference, Ryan wouldn’t commit to a starter for next week’s Monday night game against the Dolphins.
The Jets looked like they were the team that missed a few practice days because of a snow storm. “We didn’t block, we didn’t tackle, we didn’t do anything,” head coach Rex Ryan said.
After a week of frightening weather and an abbreviated practice schedule, the Buffalo Bills played one of their best games of the season.
The so-called foregone conclusion that was Rex Ryan losing his job at season’s end isn’t so foregone anymore.
Another clunker for Rex Ryan and his team as the Buffalo Bills trounced the New York Jets on Monday Night Football.
Forget that 43-23 loss to Buffalo four weeks ago. This Jets team, Rex Ryan insists, is nothing like that one.
