Jets Owner Pops Up in NYC to Chat with Reporters

Posted by Randy Lange on April 2, 2012 – 4:53 pm

Woody Johnson was helping with the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the NFL’s new pop-up store in midtown Manhattan this morning. And in that role he was also available for reporters, who had yet to hear from the Jets owner on several topics of interest to the fans.

One of the big issues was the sudden word of a rumored Jets return to “Hard Knocks” this summer, two years after the team’s first appearance on the annual NFL Films/HBO miniseries. Would they? Could they? Mr. J played it down the middle.

He didn’t deny. “I’ve heard that,” he said of those reports. “We have yet to receive a formal invitation. When we do, we’ll take a look at it.”

But he didn’t confirm: “All those concerns, the positives, the negatives, we’d have to look at, just sit around and say yea or nay. This is not a perfect science. We would use our best judgment at that point.”

One reason the Jets would be of interest to “Hard Knocks” would be the trade for their new backup QB. Johnson also spoke for the first time of the arrival of Tim Tebow last week.

“We never knew Tim would be available,” he said. “In looking at Tim, he brings a versatility and a capability at backup quarterback that we think is unique and will be very productive for us.”

As for how Tebow’s role develops, Woody said, “that’s kind of up to the coaches and Tim. How he does with it, the kind of reps he’s going to get as the second-string quarterback, I’m sure he’ll try to improve any way he can. His passing, that only helps the team, makes him more of a threat.”

Johnson said he’s not worried about the relationship between Mark Sanchez and Tebow, saying he thinks the Jets’ starter is “going to handle it great.” And he dismissed a popular storyline that a “circus atmosphere” on the team this season is inevitable.

“It’ll be a football atmosphere for sure,” he said. “I really don’t think that’s going to be the case. Our goal is to win games and get to the Super Bowl, that’s our goal. We strongly feel this move and other moves we’re going to be making, that we’ve already made and will be making, are going to put us on the track to do that. We also go to Cortland this year, which is a huge part of who Rex is and the way he builds teams.”

That’s Cortland, as in SUNY Cortland, site of the Jets’ first two training camps under head coach Rex Ryan before last year’s labor situation kept the team at home in North Jersey last year. Whether the NFL Films cameras will be patrolling the campus along with the Green & White, we can’t say yet. But the owner’s holding court in New York City today was a timely reminder that three months after the NFL Draft, and after “The NFL Shop at Draft” closes its doors, four months from today, the heat once again will be on Johnson’s Green & White.

Eric Allen talked with TE Dustin Keller at today’s event. He’ll file a report as well as a video on his chat with DK on Tuesday.

    Woody can spin it anyway he wants, this team is a circus. This will be proved as the season goes on and the loses keep mounting. This has diaster written all over it. Thanks Mike, Rex, Tony. You just make Jets fans feel miserable. Maybe I might feel better if they got a bonafide right tackle. Is that asking too much? I guess it is.

    Why does everyone think Tebow is going to unseat Sanchez? That’s the only thing Hard Knocks would concentrate on this year. Sorry, but doing it this year would be very bad.

    Danny… At what point does the long suffering fan turn into a non-fan ? I use to be a total fanatic Yankee fan, then all those years of the best team money could buy,signing every darn big time free agent that came down the pike,trying to blow teams away with their massive payroll, add the biggest idiot loud mouth in modern sports history and I realized I was no longer a fan. I had no respect for them at all. Best team money could buy and they can’t win. Today I’m happily one of the biggest Yankee haters out there cannot stand them never watched them again. Will this happen with me and the Jets…. sometimes I think I’m really close this season might do it… an exercise in futility for over 40 years

    HARD KNOCKS THATS JUST WHAT WE NEED .Interesting to NOTE NO SUPER BOWL winning coach or ORGANIZATION (STEELERS GIANTS PATS ECT )WANTS ANTYHING TO DO WITH HARD KNOCKS .In Bellichicks words, HARD KNOCKS is nothing but a distraction that hinders the organization from its ultimate goal of winning the SUPER BOWLenerio.In our senerio Woodys NO FOOL)HE knows in any case (HARD KNOCKS TEBOW,SANCHEZ ECT )this team isnt winning the SB anyway Any publicity derived from these stunts is a potential big payday in corp ad dollars

    Robert, while i disagree with you on blaming Jet management for the circus atmosphere [last time i checked we got Tebow to be a viable wildcat threat and he is an improvement at backup QB over Brunnell; though far from a valid back up QB] the circus created is by the pathetic people in the media that cannot sell media time or space with stories that NYJ fans actually WANT to read about… like our need for an RT which is 100 % on the money. I am not a fan of Rex’s big mouth and believe football should be played on the gridiron by the players. I have a hard time defending him many times but this one is not his fault. If T Baum has another bad draft though, he needs to be replaced ASAP together with their scout department, Go JETS

  7. By Randy Lange on Apr 2, 2012 | Reply

    40 year, what’s the question? Their preseason games are all televised in the tristate area. Their training camp on “Hard Knocks”? I don’t know the answer to that yet.

  9. By westcoastJET28 on Apr 2, 2012 | Reply

    Great, instead of trying to secure a RT, this org is trying to sign a rugby star. Hayden Smith a 6’7″ 240 lb aussie rugby players they want to try to turn into a Gronk. He supposedly runs a 4.7 – 40, never played football in college but, he played basketball at Metro State in Denver. This is what i am talking about, there are pressing needs on this team but, this org seem to neglect all of that. Say this rugby player works out, well, we still don’t have a RT (most important need, among other needs). After losing R. Turner you would think there would be a little bit of a panic to secure the line. I don’t get the philosophy of this offseason. I love Hardknocks but, we don’t need anymore fuel to feed this media circus but, that is what WJ wants. Money!! Attention!! Barnum & Bailey!!

    IF it looks like a Duck, walks like a Duck, quacks like a Duck, it is the clueless JETS.

    OG,LB,OLB,S,DT,YOUTH & TALENT, are needs wich needed to be adressed doing the Offseason, but what have we done, realisticly?

    I know the Draft is still upon us, but im not feeling it, you will not adress all the problems there not in the 6 or 7 Round, you lucky if we find 1 Diamond in the rough but 5 or 6, this FO doesnt even have a good Trackrecord in the first 2 Rounds are you kidding.

    Resigning your own guys puts you exactly where we was last year, is anybody telling Mr. T, to get better, you actually need to get some players wich make the Team better than the year before.

    Man im dissapointed.

  14. By DKM on Apr 2, 2012 | Reply

    Here is my thinking come Draft day:
    With the 16th pick, adress the OL or OLB whatever better value is there. If you happen to pick OL than OLB needs to be adressed with the 47th Pick the same vice versa.
    In the 3rd Round go for S or WR whatever value is bigger,whatever we dont pick of these 2, needs to be adressed in the 5th Round. Thats the safest way to go in this Draft and adresses some of our needs.
    With the rest pick as many OL,DL,LB bodys as you can to find some backups and possibley Diamonds in the Rough and see if you get lucky with a RB allthough there is still some servicable FA’s available.

    They handled it well back in 2010 and i was wrong back then. I was against it but it didn’t affect the teams performance on the field. To have it this year i am very against it and think i won’t be wrong if they do it. There are enough distractions with this team right now. Sure you might make the case that the players would be more focused because they have cameras on them so they stay sharp. Sorry i don’t buy that. It would be must watch TV. But is that what football is about or is it winning and getting to the SB? The business end this might be the right move but i am on the football side and think it could be a terrible move. The Jets don’t need to sell themselves anymore. Please don’t do Hard Knocks!

    So the NYJ are thinking about doing “Hard Knocks” again…are you serious?..Really Mr. Johnson? Really Rex Ryan? This team is a ticking time bomb!…so many locker room issues…This is supposed to be the time where as a coach Ryan has to find everyway possible to pull this team together without all this media fanfare. After this media circus with Tebow, NYJ wants more back page attention. Jerry rice said that the NYJ are a media case who cares ZERO about superbowls and 100% about ratings…..it just gets better and better with this FO.
    64Tom, you were right……Johnson…this FO….the GM…..Coaching staff has to go……Curtis Martin & Co. seems to be our only hope to see this Organzation become a winning and respectable Franchise.

    The more I think about it the more I feel there will be No One there at 16 worth drafting at that spot. Absolutely think the Jets should trade out.

    Wilkerson was a good pick for us. At the time I was surprised he was still there. He came right in, started, kept his mouth shut,worked hard and did pretty good considering that was his first year. He will only get better. How about no more gimmicks? How about just some solid, sane practicle draft and FA moves. There is a division 3 kid WHO IS ACUTUALLY A TE, will go way late IF AT ALL supposed to be 6’7” with a 4.7 speed want to try a gamble ? Want to fool around a little maybe get lucky ? Use your last pick on this kid, or pick him up undrafted instead of some Rugby player.

    Hey a positive post to read. I have tp agree with Bennett Big Moe turned out to be a solid pick last year. I actually felt he had a better year than most do because he really had no spring prep from the early camps because of the lockout last year. I expect him to make a big impact this year. Just keep in mind sacks come from the LB’s usually in this system. So those who think he will notch 10 sacks a year thats not his role.

    I know guys have been talking about the Jets just wanting to get attention but I just read a story that said the Jets told Tebow that he can not do a weekly radio interview so that is a step in the right direction.

    Ira, you have a pretty short memory, a very selective one, or you’re incredibly naive. The abuse that McKnight took on camera was completely unnecessary and his physical adjustment was a good example of something that, like uncle joe says, doesn’t need to be aired around the world. Similar problems of other rookies on other teams sure weren’t. Cro didn’t need anyone making a punchline out of his personal life. And these are only the effects that we can see, not the ones that players may have resented and may still resent. At least you say don’t do HK, though, and I agree as anyone can see that this is the last thing the team needs right now.

    I can just see the Rugby players first pre-season game – Ryan :”OK get in there kid lets see what you got” Rugby guy : ” Right oh mate I’lll give it a go looks like a good bit of fun” Then Troy Polamala levels him coming across the middle and when the get him back on the sidelines he is asking the Dr.”is it time to get up for school Mummy ? “

    I would love the Jets to get there hands on one of those O Lineman but with the Eagels loosing Peters the real good ones are probebly gone. There is to many Teams with OL needs in front of us but maybe there is chance that DeCastro falls to us, but than again the value left on the Board on the Defensive Side might to big to pass on.

    Here is a kid i like the Jets to take a close hard look in the second round cause i think he would be a Burnner with a lot of upside and could have a real inpact half way thru the season Washingtons DT Alameda Ta’amu.
    Combine him and MW, and KE taking over at Nose next year gives you young and versatile DL with PR strenght for at least 5 years.

    In regards to the draft these are guys that will fill needs & are realistic for us to get. On O OT’S Reily Reiff Iowa & John Martin Stanford, WR Mike Floyd Notre Dame & Guard Dave Decastro Stanford. On D Saftey Mark Barron Bama, D line Dontario Poe Memphis & OLB’S Melvin Ingram South Carolina, Quinton Coples North Carolina, Courtney Upshaw Bama, Nick Perry USC & Whitney Mercilus Illinois. We are 100% taking one of these guys if you count the above 11 plus these 5. 1 QB Andrew Luck Stanford, 2 QB Robert Griffith Baylor 3 RB Trent Richardson Bama 4 OT Matt Kalil USC 5 WR Justin Blackmon Okalahoma State. that is 16 right there.

    This is probably going against the main stream here, but I don’t have a problem with the team appearing on HBO again this year. They are all professionals and should not let a thing like that be a distraction, especially considering all the other true to life distractions they are already dealing with. As for the rugby player? If he can run, catch, and block give it a shot, you never know.

    I hear so much talk here about Curtis Martin in an ownership roll. The thing is, NFL ownership is reserved for billionaires, NOT millionaires. Now, if he were part of a group, and I mean a “large” group of fellow millionaires there may be some logic to it. BUT, beware of multiple ownership rolls in any sport today. At some point there needs to be one person and one person only to make those critical decisions. You know what you have, you don’t know what you will get.

Rothlisberger said he “feels bad” for Mark, and “as a QB you want to get into a rhythm, you don’t want to come out of a game and then go back in.” He was also asked how long until fans were calling for TT he said, “the first preseason game.” Both Percy Harvin & Champ Bailey said TT is going in to challenge MS, for the starting job. “Anyone who thinks he (TT) is not going in to win the starting job in fooling themselves.” -Percy Harvin

    scjoe, Martin would be the figurehead for a group of investors, for sure, but I’m certain that he’d have the biggest voice in terms of football decisions no matter who the other money players were. As for fear of what we might get instead of Woody and Mr T, one thing we’d definitely get if Martin played a lead role in a new ownership structure was somebody who knows something about football. And speaking of that, I see Ben R, who of course knows nothing about the game, said the exact same thing that me and so many others have said about the Wildcat and QB rhythm from the beginning. And if there’s ANY QB in the NFL who has trouble getting into a rhythm, either in a single game or over a stretch of ‘em, it’s Sanchez.

    64, I see your point and I agree with it re: the GM, not so much the HC or the owner. The GM, in the Jets case anyway, has final say in personnel decisions, he provides the players for Rex, he has not had a very good track record the past few years. I really believe Rex can win with an appropriate supporting cast. Take a real close look at the overall talent on this club. How many “quality” starters can you count? I think, all things considered, Rex has done a decent job, giving what he has to work with. He may not be an offensive genius, but he shouldn’t have to be.

    Some of you need to let go of hate. Rugby is a pretty violent sport. We just rid ourselves of a petty baseball pitcher. Nobody cared. If we bring in a guy that loves violence, we are the winners. If we bring in brutal TE’s along with Tebow, we’re gonna hurt people. Defenses are gonna have 2 prepare for the worst scenario. When that’s not the case.

    In my opinion our Beloved Jets are not as far off as some would want us to believe. Number 1 we need O-LINE help period. They don’t need to be great. Just good enough at run blocking giving Greene or whoever the back is some room. Same thing at pass blocking. Just give the QB time enough for at least two looks and maybe his check-down. We need offensive line-men work hard give a 100% & play hard.On Defense again i don’t think we’re all that far off. A GOOD PASS RUSHING END OR OLB. Would be great. I think a couple more safety’s with some size would be great. This (REX RYAN) scheme you don’t need a great pass rusher. Don’t misunderstand what i’m saying. Yea a good pass rusher or two would be great. But I don’t believe they are a necessity.

    scjoe, the index of Jet loserdom is how often someone says “He’s not perfect but…,” “He doesn’t have to be…” such-and-such, and so on. The great Willis Reed was smart enough, and courageous enough, to know that given how hard it is to really achieve excellence, if you don’t aim high, you’ll score out low. That’s why he said, “Don’t shoot for the moon, shoot for the stars — that way, if you don’t get the stars, at least you get the moon.” This mindset has been sorely lacking on the Jets since back when Weeb would go for the FG and the Shea crowd would boo — or cheer when Joe waved the FG unit off the field and insisted on going for it. Until we get back to that attitude, and that kind of QB, we’re going nowhere.

    Case in pt, scjoe: The Giants just won the SB largely on the strength of their front 4. But here’s ROY23 saying “a good pass rusher or two would be great, but I don’t believe they are a necessity.” I’m not calling you a loser, Roy, but you’re sure talking like one. You don’t hear NE talking about what’s not necessary, you just see them pulling out the stops to get stronger everywhere. And one reason you don’t see any Bradys or Peytons playing on the Jets is because if Rex ever told them to take a knee at the 1 to keep the ball out of the hands of the opposing O, they’d just laugh…if they paid attention to him at all…

    64, I don’t necessarily disagree with what you are saying. BUT, my point is, Rex is not in a position to “go out and shop for the groceries” (in the words of a very successful former head coach) he has to play the hand he was dealt. No, he hasn’t won or even gotten to the big game yet but the team has been somewhat competitive during his watch. If you are competitive year after year the odds are in your favor to not only get to the big game, but to win it. So, it is my logic that the brunt of the blame should be placed on the GM (in this case) not on the HC. In NE, the person who uses those groceries is the same one who goes out and buys them.

    The Giants were a 9 – 7 team that got hot due to Romo missing a wide open wr and cruz 99 yd run on missed tackles vs our Jets. Then a punt hitting off a rookie’s knee because Ted Ginn was hurt and then Welker dropping easy ball to clinch game. Cmonn they were not a great team they got hot at the right time and caught every break possible, You watch they won’t even make the playoffs this yr like after 08 they stunk for 4 yrs. Yes they got there rings but stop making them out to be the greatest team in football. I watched them all season and they stunk. Victor cruz fumbled against the Cards and ref messed up or again no playoffs. They were very lucky and a thing called destiny. They have a great d line and a QB not great team

    I definitely think Rex has done the best he could with what he was dealt, scjoe, especially on D during his 1st yr. Unfortunately, he’s revealed himself to be so clueless on O — first by putting the entire O in Schotty’s hands, now by putting all this faith in Sparano and the Wildcat — that it’s almost as if he’s undermining the O, which in turns leads him to hold the D to impossible standards, i.e. it was the D’s fault we lost 10-6 to MIA in 12/10 and 17-13 to DEN (with a pick-6 from Sanchez) last yr. Rex has FAILED to make use of weapons on O, for example Holmes is clearly being held back by Rex’s Stone Age views on O and MS’s poor execution. Since O and passing is more important than ever in the NFL, I give Rex this yr and that’s it.

    danny, you need serious help, you really do. You’re so used to the Jets losing and to your role as loyal, loony excuse-maker that even the very same team that plays in what’s supposed to be our stadium winning the SB for the 4th time and the second time in 5 yrs — when we’ve won it once, an eternity ago — doesn’t awaken you to reality. This is on the level of those old “Wait till next yr” Dodger fans. I’m sure there’s a psychiatric sports clinic somewhere that can treat you, as your malady is worthy of entry in the DSM-V. As joe keeps saying, the whole pt is to watch your team build over the course of a great season, win the big one, and enjoy all the rewards that come with that, not denigrate success out of love of loyal loserdom.

    64, let me try to approach this from a different angle, see if you agree. Sanchez was pretty much forced on Rex by ownership and the FO. Now, Shotty ran the offense and it is my guess he had to limit the play calling to work around Sanchez’s short comings. There was no contingency plan based upon the depth chart at the QB position. Theses things to me were very clear, so if you agree with them it would be difficult to blame Rex for Holmes being mis used or for the offense in general being what it was. That said, I think we will get a much clearer picture after this season as to who was more at fault, MS or Shotty. Me personally? I will go with MS.

  60. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Apr 5, 2012 | Reply

    scjoe, I don’t know for a fact that Sanchez was forced upon Rex and if he was, Rex sure doesn’t talk like it with all this absurd “He’s our QB for the next 10 yrs” stuff. Then again, Rex is nothing if not the poster child for what shrinks call reaction formation, so between that and his essential dishonesty it’s almost impossible to tell what he really thinks about anything. What IS undeniable is that he gets excited about “ground and pound” and the Wildcat, which have zero to do with the way anyone wins in the NFL today. By dint of these bizarre tendencies of his, Holmes is being wasted and I wouldn’t blame SH a bit if he split first chance he got. And why not, when Jets fans like uncle joe rag on V Jackson and thrill to Chaz Schilens?

Btw you keep saying the league is only about offense yet Peytons colts only won 1 SB, Brees high flying Saints only won 1 SB the Pats top offense the last few yrs won none and the last SB was a low scoring defensive battle ? D wins championships and always will. If Peyton Manning had a decent D all those yrs he would have at least 5 rings on his finger.

    Destiny brought that SB rematch last yr because Lee Evens should have held onto that ball in endzone he’s a pro and that rookie on SF should have known u never go near a football u can’t catch on a punt return. Again that is something u learn in pee wee football and DRILLED in ur head all the way up. Raven vs SF should and easily could have been SB if it wasn’t for destiny which I believe in. Both teams run the football and play great D. Both teams in conference championship play great D but no D don’t win. The Giants D and Pats D both played well in SB and the Giants D is what won it for them (besides welkers drop). Defense will always win championships please go get help MR. NEGATIVE hahahahaha

    Don’t tell me about the Pats SB rings from 7 yrs ago because those were before Spygate and the Pats had great D shutting down the greatest show on turf. Look at the yr they were undefeated breaking records with best offense in the NFL well the Giants D was what won SB in 08 with another low scoring SB. I forget but wasn’t the score like 17 -14 or something like that ?? DEEEEEEFENSE. Packer won SB 2 yrs ago but ummm had the number 1 D in the NFL that yr. Last season the D fell off so they were not as good and lost in playoffs ?? Am I wrong 64 ????

    It’s called joking, danny, or “playing the dozens,” and it’s something athletes engage in on the field, but I guess you don’t know anything about that. Back to this neurotic thinking of yours that you need help addressing, do you really believe in “jinxes”? Yeah, there are some players in LR’s who believe in that, they usually spend most of their time on the bench. But thanks for the best laughs of the day — all these teams that “only won 1 SB” in the last few yrs, something we haven’t done in over 40 YRS! Another thing players say is “You have to be in it to win it” which in terms of SBs means you have to make the playoffs routinely, preferably by winning your division, to even have a shot. Our failure to do that speaks for itself.

    64, there is not a single doubt in my mind that if personnel decisions were entirely up to Rex that Mark Sanchez would not be a Jet today. I don;t care what he blurts out now, after the fact. That is just being a good soldier. Rex is defense orientated, that MS pick would have been a defensive player as sure as I am sitting here writing. Of course we wont hear that from Rex as long as he is HC.

    danny, you could just as easily say the Giants won because they had a strong-armed, elite QB who completed a crucial, long, pinpoint pass to their excellent #3 WR. (Actually, you could also say NE lost because Brady and Gronk were hurt.) Obviously you need a good D and a good O but as a fellow suffering Jet fan of as many yrs as me put it, “Every team in the NFL has a high-flying O…except the Jets.” scjoe, you may be right about Rex and Sanchez but even if that’s true, we’d still have needed a better QB than either MS or TT are now. Thanks for keeping up on the facts about Brady, Tebow, etc., joe, some people on this site seem to miss every game other than the Jet game but talk as if they actually know or even watch NFL football.

Randy get in touch with Woody and tell him you found what we been looking for the last 40yrs.

Me personally, I never met anyone all that worried about jinxes who was any good, that kind of talk is for losers. As for belittling people, being a fan of a franchise this mediocre for almost 50 yrs can give you a rather sardonic sense of humor, “You’ll find out when you reach the top,” as Dylan once said.

    My point was that basketball in Harlem back when I was a kid was more like football, danny, but that’s okay, at least now you’re talking more about football and less about “bashing.” I will tell you, though, that if it wasn’t for folks like me in the late ’60s and after, you probably woulda died from an accident at the Shoreham nuclear plant, which we successfully got decommissioned after many years of protests and political action. I actually used to know most of Suffolk very well from visiting several family members since the early ’60s, back when the North Shore waters were pristine and you couldn’t put your hand in the water without coming up with several different kinds of fish. But I’ll get back to O, D. and the Jets in my next post.

  85. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Apr 8, 2012 | Reply

    Anyway, danny, back to football, my main views on the Jets and the NFL, which I first started watching as a very little kid in 1963, are simple. You can’t win big and build a dynasty, which is what I wanna do, without (1) An elite QB (2) A big-time passing game (3) A HC who understands O and looks to put a lot ot pts on the board like at NE, NO, GB, and PIT (4) A GM who’s smart and patient enough to build thru the draft instead of by way of FA spit and chewing gum. Of course you also need a good D and a HC who brings you one but we have a HC who didn’t bother to get involved with the O until his 3rd yr, who wouldn’t know an elite QB if it fell on him, and who disgraces the team and org with his off-the-field behavior. Time for big changes.

  86. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Apr 8, 2012 | Reply

    And of course, danny, my pt about how rough basketball was in Harlem back in the day compared to Long Island, which was mostly a joke anyway, wasn’t about which part of NYC or NY state has the most gang members. Gang members of any race, creed, or gender are sad, sick people who need fathers, mothers, a society that is interested in their plight, and in general a lot of help. To hear that the Suffolk County that I used to enjoy in the ’60s and ’70s has become more like Detroit than Long Island is very upsetting news indeed. PS. One reason there aren’t that many football players from Harlem is because the NFL needs to go into inner cities more, like Major League Baseball has done, to give kids from there a chance to make it in football.

    Wow 64 I finally agree with you about the NFL going to inner cities and finding kids that have talent but don’t have fathers and other role models to help guide them thru school so they have the opportunies. Yes it is very sad what happened to Long Island. The day’s of middle class is gone so it’s either high class beautiful neighborhoods or low income housing which seem to filter Gang members thru them. Getting back to football I agree Rex gave shotty way to much authority the pass 3 seasons due to his lack of knowledge on Offense. When I heard Rex say he finally understood that he was putting pressure on his players due to his BOLD statements I realized he is a first time HC and needs to learn a few things as Mr. Belicheck did himself

You see it in the fan base in NY i mean yrs ago no one was a Jets fan now everyone has Jets gear and been rooting for our team. Those 2 AFC Championships runs hurt when we lost and of course I would say to others we will never win the SB as long as I’m alive but I then realize we are actually closer and a feared team and man I never seen that in all my yrs watching the Jets.

I do agree this is a big season for REX because another 8 – 8 season will put him on hot seat but as of now he has been succesful just hasn’t won the big one in his 3 yrs but he has made us a better football team. Btw as for the Big talk from Rex I already agreed with that and don’t like it but I do give him credit for admitting he was wrong after LT spoke up. He is a 1st time HC and anyone who usually performs a new job makes a few mistakes u must learn from. Just look at Belichecks 1st few seasons. He really learned from his mistakes as HC of Browns didn’t he??
