It would be a difficult decision for any coach, but Ryan seems to have a handle on it — at least a better one than when he dealt with the quarterback situation during his rookie coaching season in 2009.
Wide receiver Stephen Hill predicts a postseason run for the Jets this year. “Oh yes, definitely,” Hill told the NFL Network. “We will be in the playoffs, and deep in the playoffs.”
Idzik needs to have a short list of candidates to replace Ryan and his coaching staff. If you see six other teams hire their head coach before the Jets do next offseason, you’ll know Idzik is not prepared.
Smith has many issues, but footwork is the biggest. He is struggling to understand the mechanics, and that leads to overall sloppiness. He is not ready to play right now, and he’ll have to pick it up quite a bit if he is going to be able to contribute this year.
Holmes has been out since last September, when he broke his left foot. He spoke Wednesday about his long recovery and “learning to walk again.”
If you look at the big picture, Monday night’s loss — which mercifully eliminated the Jets from the AFC playoff race — was a good thing for the franchise. And the comic ineptitude made it even better.
Signing Braylon Edwards sends a dangerous message to the rest of the Jets’ locker room.
Dustin Keller and Stephen Hill did not travel with the Jets to Tennessee.
Rex Ryan expects Braylon Edwards and Tim Tebow to ready for the Jets’ Monday night game against the Titans.
Braylon Edwards is back with the New York Jets — a week after bashing them. The veteran wide receiver was awarded to New York off waivers from Seattle on Tuesday as the Jets try to bolster their injured receiving corps with a familiar face.
Concise, humble, understated. Life would have been a lot easier for Rex Ryan if he had acted like that a long time ago.
Ryan’s swagger made for plenty of headlines during his first three seasons in New York. Now, it’s what the coach doesn’t say that raises some eyebrows.
It was ugly, but the Jets survived with a victory in Jacksonville.
A week after leading the Jets to victory, Greg McElroy is listed as inactive against the Jaguars.
Rex Ryan has no bold message for Bill Belichick and the Patriots this week. Nope, no fightin’ words this time around.
