Some Xmas thoughts on the Jets:


-- We have the potential to be 8-8,  I thought this was totally achievable after last years 6-10 with the upgrades we made on DL, RB, LB and TE over 2012.  With more consistent QB play (by that I mean just mediocre more games rather than horrific), 9 or 10 wins were easily achievable (NE game definitely , at least one of Pitt/Raven Miami losses)

-- All this with a new offensive system, and rookie starters at CB, DL, OL,FB, and Coples at a relatively new position. 

-- our running game has improved dramatically as the season progressed, Milner started showing why he is#1 pick, and with a full preseason should improve dramatically, and  our running game took off over the last 5 games with improvements in blocking by Bohanon and  our rookie guard

-- Kerley and Nelson showed they are players , Cumberland is a good #2 TE   get a #1 TE and 2 burner WR's from the draft or FA and we are set for a few years. Hill finally getting healthy and developing would be an unexpected bonus

-- Davis and Harris are solid at LB, Pace was great, but will he be able to improve or maintain next year at his age? need another Rush LB

-- Cro played hurt all year, if he can get healthy he will return to form next year

-- Allen mde huge strides at safety, but look another upgrade and  keep Landry.

SO FOR Next YEAR...

-- bring in a veteran credible Backup QB , keep Geno , don't draft a QB unless you can get a high upside bargain in 3rd or 4h round

-- Top three draft picks for offense, WR, TE, OL in no particular order

-- Other draft picks for defense, Safety, LB, best available

--FA  after vet backup QB, get best available  til money runs out of WR, rush LB, safety, TE OL

 -- RB go with Powell, Ivory, Goodsen


With Brady a year older, Miami in disarray from last game loss to us, and Buffalo being Buffalo, we will win the DIv next year, maybe deep into Playofs, and definitely get a super bowl in 2015. But only if we stay the course with our Coach. My new Motto this Holiday Season


" Keep Rex Ryan in REX RYAN NY JETS HEADCOACH"


Merry REXMUS JET FANS!!!

If Idzik was behind the decision to stick with Winters over Vlad all year, he should have granted Rex immunity and owes him another year.

All these stories coming out have me really nervous about Rex's status. He has to stay he is the only coach for this team. There is no other coaches out there unless Idzik wants to get some coordinator form Seattle. 


There are worse coaches out there Shanahan and Schiano to name a few.


KEEP REX!!

The Ny and national media are just plain awful they simple are out for blood, they are out to run Rex Ryan out of town the season isn't even over yet and a good number of them seem to think that this is the only thing that matters. The game Sunday is huge for both teams a loss on either side will almost certainly Guarantee sweeping changes for either organization, I haven't decided which side of the fence I'm on for or against Rex staying all I can do is be patient and wait, unlike the sharks that are circling around this story.

Woody hired John Idzik to work with Rex but for how long 1 year 2 years or Possibly more, only Woody Rex And Idzik know that for sure. last year the daily news had a back page with the headline Rex wants out, this year we are hearing Rex will be fired. Idzik has already traded Revis, drafted Geno Smith so it's likely he will dismiss Ryan too but I just don't think it will happen if the team finishes at 8-8.

This comment seems to be the sentiment.  I like Rex.  his offense needs improvement always, but having Sanchise as your QB for 4 years and a rookie QB this year doesn't help.

Appropriate help from the OC can do wonders.  Rex is a good coach and I'd miss the defense (even if doesn't get enough sacks)

 

 "19. New York Jets (7-8, LW: 20)
I think they're going to fire Rex Ryan just because they feel like that's what they should do, not because they have a better option in mind."

This blog makes me laugh really hard sometimes. If Sanchez and Geno had a baby it would be part Steve Urkel and part Mr. Magoo (I'm talking about vision on the field as a QB). And YET Rex Ryan is to blame for these 2 horrendous QB's and should be fired. This is absurd.


Rex should get a statue for managing to get as many wins as he has gotten since 2009 with these 2 misfits at QB. Now granted Geno is a rookie and we shouldn't give up on him! Woody Johnson is gonna extend Rex's contract (and he should).....Rex has done a great job considering what his GM's have given him to work with.

Well the DN is saying that Dan Quinn heads Idzik's wish list to replace Rex. 

Quinn has ONE WHOLE year as a defensive Coordinator for the SheHawks. 

Wow!

I'm so done w/ the nonsense, Idzik almost has to make a change, in order to take ownership/responsibility for this team. If he were to extend Rex, & the whole thing fails who's fault is it? It's an offense based game now. How long can we go on w/a head coach who wants nothing to do w/offense? What happens w/Idzik decides to stop drafting defensive players, shifts away from w/Rex has been doing. A GM should get to pick the HC who agrees w/his philosophy/ideas. The HC should be allowed to hire his own staff. That's life in the NFL. If they were to let Rex stay on next year, then the clock on Idzik doesn't start to run for another year.

I usually dont care about how many posts someone decides to put up in this blog but jake100 is just flat out annoying. Dude we get it...you do t want rex back and neither do I but you dont see me posting every 2 seconds. We need to find you a woman!

The bottom line is that if Rex is such a defensive genius, why have his defenses gotten worse in each of the 5 years that he has coached. And his using washed up Ed Reed over Antonio Allen was his biggest mistake. The defense statistically has gotten worse since he made that switch.

So I think he has had a fair shot. He hasn't done it the past three years. So we need a change. But I would keep MM as I believe he is developing Geno into a quality QB.

If they can't get Gruden or Cowher, I would be amenable to giving Rex a one year extension and hiring a new DC AND SPECIAL TEAMS COORDINATORS. But if they don't do that, Rex should be fired.

I found a solution to the Rex debacle!!!!   Fire Rex and hire his brother. Let Rob have lap band surgery, shave his head and presto...Rex 2.0!

I am telling you, Buffalo, not the Pats will be the team to fear next season. Pettine has their defense clicking on all cylinders.  Their D is sick!  All they need is a couple of offensive weapons and a couple pieces on the D and they will be a huge force. This is why we need a killer off season. The phins also are in it. If they upgrade their oline and a couple tweaks on the defense,  they will be a tough out also. It will be a very tight battle in 2014. I haven't seen this much parity in a long time in the afce.

@Johnsbodybyvi Ledo I have to agree, the mobile experience is AWFUL.


However, if they insist on using Livefyre, there is no native mobile app, at least currently.

@theeditor

The answer to your question about the defense getting worse is the offense has turned the ball over at an mind boggling pace over the last 3 seasons, the loss of a healthy Derrelle Revis didn't help either, While I will agree with you starting Reed over Allen didn't help things much getting a new DC under Rex makes no sense, you think some Johnny come lately DC has better Schemes them Rex Ryan?

levi

@theeditor Im not sure if Reed should be starting or not but he has had two picks in the little time he has played for them. You cant argue with results, this team has struggled mightily to get turnovers.

They wont give Rex just a one year ext or the circus will continue, its either fire him or a multi ext.

My guess is Idzik did most of the ground work in the SheHawks research on Quinn......

@levi he does makes some valid points at times but the whole posting the same stuff over and over again has driven me too drink and I hate alchol!

I am against giving him more than one year. So I guess fire him!

@levi@a57se@bob 

The Seahawks hired Quinn the same day the Jets hired Idzik so maybe there was something there and Quinn waited to see if he'd be going with Idzik?

levi

@a57se @bob I could be wrong but I think it was rumored when Idzik was hired thats who he wanted. But I cant remember if it was for DC or HC. Its still just speculation anyway. If weve learned anything this year its that Idzik keeps thing close to the vest.

@theeditor 


I agree.Time for change. He hasn't won two in a row in well over 20 games. No playoffs or winning record in 3 years. We need a new direction or it will be the same up and down gig. The Jets need to cut the loses and move on.

@levi @Zartan , that only changed when the refs called a bs call and Rex showed some emotion by yelling at a ref(never seen him go off like that. The guys were not playing football.

@Zartan Coming from the guy who said the game was over at 3-0 on Sunday.... I dont think I will take your "obvious" opinion to strongly.

@Zartan I'm pretty sure this is due to the change in the system, and nothing to do with Bassett (who I don't think posts more than he has in the past, possibly even less).

@djf1 @Bent @a57se @Brendan Has that not been obvious since OTAs? Basset has been doing most of the posts. It's called a power trip.
