Rex Ryan still pictures himself raising the Lombardi Trophy as a Super Bowl champion. Whether he gets another opportunity to try to deliver that title with the New York Jets remains to be seen.
There have been conflicting reports about the GM’s fate. But according to the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta, the front office has been a mess since Idzik has taken over.
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.
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.
Picture this: Small planes carrying banners circling the workplaces of each of those involved in the “Fire John Idzik” campaign, stating their personal failures.
An angry Jets fans tweeted at owner Woody Johnson, encouraging him to fire general manager John Idzik. Johnson hit the “favorite” button before realizing what he did and undoing it.
Leading the reported crusade to find the Jets’ next head coach is Woody Johnson, which makes sense. What doesn’t make any sense is his wingman on the endeavor, general manager John Idzik.
Idzik, in just his second season as the general manager, might be fired by Johnson after the year, though Ryan’s seat appears hotter.
Decker went from playing in the Super Bowl a year ago to simply playing for pride during the final weeks of this season. Through it all, he has no regrets.
When you sit down in front of the wide-screen Sunday at 4 p.m., pull out those blue, red, and silver pom-poms and root your head off — for those valiant Tennessee Titans.
Woody Johnson told the Daily News he’s still unsure whether Rex Ryan or John Idzik will be employed by the close of business on Dec. 29, one day after the Jets’ final game.
With three games left, the race is on. Next Sunday could play a big part in deciding things with the Jets playing the lowly Titans in Tennessee.
According to a report, Idzik has lost support within the organization this season, from the front office to the coaching staff.
Rex Ryan has faced plenty of calls for his ouster during another trying season for the Jets. After his big gamble in overtime against Minnesota went bust, he’s sure to hear some more.
