Because life imitates other parts of life, the endless car wreck that is the New York Jets wouldn’t seem right just sitting there unaccompanied by an actual car wreck involving one of its members. Cue Rex Ryan, his red mustang and a red light that went completely unnoticed.
Rex Ryan, who skipped his league-mandated media session to end the season and is instead at the Atlantis in the Bahamas, was photographed without his shirt by the New York Daily News. Looking rather svelte, by the way. It’s just that tattoo. We need to talk to him about it.
We have, like, actually sort-of-interesting, not-really-scandalous Jets news! Rex Ryan is generally supported by his players! He’ll probably be the only one to stay. Why they’re actually standing up for the big man, after the jump.
Forget being the right football decision (which, at this point, it is) – the Jets’ decision to start someone other than Mark Sanchez at quarterback for the first time in the Rex Ryan era is the humane decision. Earlier this afternoon, it was reported that Sanchez will lose his starting spot to Greg McElroy for the Jets’ game against the Chargers Sunday, and if it doesn’t end Sanchez’s career with the Jets, it at least probably ends his 2012 season. And in a season rich with Jets misfires, it’s the right move.
The Braylon Edwards-Dubbed “Idiots Calling Shots” Have Idiotically Claimed Braylon Edwards Off Waivers
Braylon Edwards called the Jets brass idiots recently. The Jets brass just signed Braylon Edwards. So he called his own signing idiotic then, right?
At an 8:00 a.m. meeting with his team today, Jets head coach Rex Ryan announced that Mark Sanchez will be the starting quarterback for this week’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It’s too bad for Greg McElroy, who threw a touchdown in his lone NFL appearance and led the team to a win after Sanchez faltered.
“Same Old Jets” used to be the phrase Jets fans uttered when their team inevitably disappointed them, despite moderately high expectations. Since they assembled an organization in which nobody involved can just shut the hell up, it can also pretty much sum up how Jets fans feel when things like Antonio Cromartie predicting a playoff appearance happen.
The New York Jets have had their ups and downs in Rex Ryan’s tenure, with the majority of the team’s controversy centering around Ryan’s blabbering and Mark Sanchez. The two often combine themselves in the media, with Rex making a habit out of defending Sanchez despite 3+ years of below average quarterback play.
After the Jets’ blowout 34-0 loss to the 49ers, chef Rex Ryan offered a unique “recipe for getting your ass kicked”: four turnovers, 2-13 on third downs, getting a punt blocked, and giving up 245 rushing yards, the most rushing yards given up by the Jets under one of his teams. Video, after the jump.
