One minute you’re the embattled incumbent quarterback that nobody likes and is probably off the team at the end of the season, the next minute you’re just a dude who wears headbands.
Just say “Matt Simms”, bro.
There are a few subtle differences — notably race, weight, job description and tattoo choices — but Jets coach Rex Ryan and rapper Kanye West are pretty much the same dude nowadays. They both think they’re the best at their respective life positions, and they aren’t afraid to tell us about it.
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?
