Pettine “will effectively become a free agent after the season,” Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported Friday.
There are two games left to play before an offseason of uncertainty begins for the New York Jets.
It all began as an intriguing idea. Then it all fizzled — before it really even started.
Winning is a habit. So is losing. And the Jets have perfected the latter. The Jets are so collectively detached that it’s hard to know if they know the difference.
Mark Sanchez blew the second chance that Rex Ryan gave him. Now, it’s Greg McElroy’s turn to be the Jets’ starting quarterback.
This is a full-fledged NFL disaster, and there is no turning back right now. The Jets have no quarterback, their receivers are awful and their coaching staff lacks common sense. There is no saving this team.
If you think there were plenty of empty seats this year, just wait and see what MetLife Stadium looks like in 2013.
Is under pressure Jets’ quarterback Mark Sanchez fixable?
The best thing for the Jets right now is Greg McElroy. Everyone in Florham Park knows it. Let’s see if they make the right decision.
The Jets got back to Rex Ryan family values during their 27-13 victory over St. Louis, dusting off the old cookbook and finding the recipe that made them extremely successful in both 2009 and 2010 — run, run and then run some more.
Just be thankful that for one day, at least, the Jets gave themselves a foundation upon which to build a season. Now we’ll see if they’ve got the brick and mortar to turn it into an edifice worth looking at.
Mark Sanchez is still the Jets’ franchise quarterback despite being mired in one of the worst slumps of his career. Tim Tebow, however, is still the team’s most talked-about quarterback.
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.
“I can control my attitude, my effort and my work ethic,” said Tebow. “Those are things that will never change based on what anybody says.”
According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, the New York Jets are working out free agent running backs Steve Slaton and Kahlil Bell.
