New York Jets
This year hasn’t been particularly kind to sports franchises in the Tri-State area. Every team has something (in certain cases, multiple things) they’d like from Santa.
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.
The Miami Dolphins are flying high following a remarkable come from behind victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
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.
“You can cut it and slice it how you want to. I think we’re — what are we, 3-12? — I think we’re the best 3-12 team in the history of football. No doubt about it.”
A disappointing season for the New York Jets is winding down, and there was almost a victory over the New England Patriots to help round it out. Unfortunately, coming up “just short” is the way to describe a lot of things this year.
Sheldon Richardson, the Jets defensive lineman who has been critical of law enforcement in the past, spoke Sunday in support of slain officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.
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.
He kept the hat on in the tunnel before introductions and held it over his heart during the national anthem. The Jets also held a moment of silence.
New York ranks 30th in points per game (16.4), which is a big reason why Rex Ryan could be coaching his last game in the Patriots-Jets series.
Rontez Miles’ season debut for the New York Jets never made it to game day.
Wilkerson and Harvin could provide the Jets with a big lift on Sunday versus the New England Patriots.
“You name it, I’ll put myself up there. I’m not scared to say it. You don’t get to this point not being confident. If somebody calls me cocky, oh well, they’ll get over it.”
Inspired by what very well could be the last time Rex Ryan coaches against the Patriots, Al Dukes donned his Santa hat and entered the Allstate Studio with a pep in his step (but carrying a heavy heart).
