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.
Rex Ryan may want to make this an issue about how real men stand up and don’t hide behind anonymous quotes. But he’s missing the point.
Maybe the winds from Hurricane Sandy can blow the Jets out of town. It can take them all, starting with Mark Sanchez.
His performance in New England showed that he has the stuff to get the job done, but he must now show that over four quarters. Only then will his critics go away, and only Sanchez can shut them up. It remains to be seen if he can do that.
Ryan insisted on Monday that the Jets “go down to win,” and those who think that the team was playing “scared” in a 29-26 defeat are “ridiculous.”
They won’t be favored when they return from a bye week to play at Seattle in Week 10 or when they host the Patriots the following week, but they have an excellent chance of going 8-1 or 7-2 in the final nine games.
One thing is for sure after watching Sunday’s game — make that two things. The Patriots are vulnerable, and the Jets had no business losing that one.
The Jets snatched defeat from the jaws of victory on Sunday — and they managed to do it in as agonizing a fashion as the hardcore and old school fans have ever seen.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Mark Sanchez threw for a season-high 328 yards and had some good moments. It was the plays that gained nothing that had a bigger impact. The Jets quarterback deliberately kicked Shonn […]
Mark Sanchez didn’t exactly make his fantasy football owners happy with 82 passing yards on Sunday against the Colts. But Jets fans would be more than happy to see this from the starting QB here on out.
This is purgatory for Jets fans like me. Look, I’m thrilled that the line was rejuvenated, if only for a week. But I don’t see how it will be enough to get New York to the postseason tournament.
