Ryan tried his best to sound positive, but he appeared weary and acknowledged he got very little sleep after the Jets’ 31-17 loss to the Broncos on Sunday.
Five games later, the Jets have gone from potential AFC East contender to a downright disappointment, leaving many to wonder if head coach Rex Ryan will make it to the end of the season.
Craig was sad to report this Tuesday morning that, in his eyes, the Rex Ryan he once knew and loved is all but dead.
Starting cornerback Dee Milliner was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a torn Achilles tendon on Monday, and the Jets signed cornerback Josh Thomas to take his spot on the roster.
With five straight losses and a short week coming up, the Jets are spiraling out of control. Next up: the archrival Patriots in Foxboro.
He’s still not much of a quarterback. But Sunday wasn’t all Geno Smith’s fault. Lay this one on a defense that couldn’t keep the heat on Peyton Manning — and paid the price.
Dee Milliner was seen leaving MetLife Stadium on a cart after the game, crutches at his side. Coach Rex Ryan said simply that it was an Achilles tendon injury, but nothing more.
The New York Jets’ refuse to lose attitude kept the team competitive late into the fourth quarter.
Eric Decker will be a game-time decision for his reunion with the Denver Broncos.
“I feel like Rex has had so much success, from Baltimore to the Jets early on in his tenure there, that now that it’s not going his way he does not know how to dial it back and simplify.”
There seem to be two types of Jets fans. The long-suffering fan who toils in tired desperation, the Joe & Evan, “Oh, the pain!” gang. They plod down the decades in quiet resignation. The there is Fan Guy, the disgrace that calls Twitter home.
The Jets’ backup QB was stunningly critical when he acknowledged he wasn’t prepared to play last Sunday. The comments drew the ire of fans and the media — and kudos from his head coach.
Despite statistics that show the Jets are just horrible, Rex Ryan made a strong case Wednesday that denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.
Smith is in a rut, on and off the field. But he’s getting another chance to hold on to his starting job, and knows that if he doesn’t improve quickly, he could end up back on the sideline — maybe for good.
Boomer and Craig tried to forecast what sort of reception Geno Smith will receive when he takes the field at MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon against the Broncos.
