Tebow as QB Dominates Rex News Conference

Posted by Randy Lange on November 14, 2012 – 4:01 pm

Update, 5:59 p.m. ET

Rex Ryan could have spoken at length about the St. Louis Rams, the waiving of LB Aaron Maybin or the signing of RB Kahlil Bell. But he wasn’t asked about the Rams and mentioned the transactions only late in today’s news conference.

Mostly reporters wanted to probe the coach’s reactions to a story of named and anonymous team sources in the Daily News on the theme of the quality of Tim Tebow’s play as Mark Sanchez’s backup at QB.

Ryan didn’t deviate from his position on Tebow that he offered back when the Jets traded for him with the Broncos on March 21.

“I’ve said that from day one. We never brought Tim in here to be the starting quarterback,” Ryan said. “We’ve used him in the Wildcat and you saw him throwing the ball [Sunday at Seattle]. Two snaps, 20 snaps, he has done that for us. I recognize the fact that he’s a tremendous football player.

Soon after the trade, Ryan introduced the idea of Tebow working on the punt team. ” ‘You know what? We’d like you to be our personal protector. We think that’s going to give us an advantage in the punting game,’ ” he reformed the statement he made to Tebow at the time. “This might be the best net punting we’ve ever had here, and a lot of that can be attributed to having Tim Tebow as our personal protector.”

As the PP, Tebow has taken three fake-punt snaps, all for first downs. And Robert Malone’s 39.3-yard net punting average, while only 20th among this season’s strong group of NFL punters, would be the best in 47 seasons, or since Curley Johnson registered a 39.7 net for the 1965 Jets that is still the franchise best.

Another main topic was if the anonymous sources quoted in the story indicated that the ’12 Jets were starting to fray as the ’11 Jets did in the second half of the season.

“Did I address it with the team? I absolutely addressed it,” Ryan said. “If you’re not going to put your name on it, I think that’s about as cowardly a thing as there is.

“I don’t think we have the same problem. Even back then I thought it was a little over-exaggerated about the rift in the whole locker room. I do recognize there was something wrong there and I’ve made it my personal agenda to go out and fix it. You can say what you want, but if I’m going to be judged by this team coming together, that’s fine, I’ll be here a long time.”

We’ll post the transcripts of Ryan’s news conference as well as the informal newsers by Sanchez and Tebow at their lockers as they become available early this evening.

The Transactions

On Kahlil Bell and Maybin, Rex said both moves were related to current personnel needs.

“When you look at this roster, I’m not saying [Maybin] won’t be back or anything else,” the coach said. “But you have to do what we always say is in the best interests of our football team. With us having two backs who are questionable injury-wise in Bilal Powell with a concussion and Joe McKnight with an ankle, we felt we needed to bring somebody else in.

“I like Aaron. I love the way he plays. He flies around and does a tremendous job on the practice field. The numbers haven’t been there for him this year. I’m encouraged with the way Ricky Sapp played on Sunday, and I think he showed it on the practice field too.”

Sapp was on the CenturyLink turf for 19 plays, 13 on defense. Maybin got 116 snaps on defense in the first eight games and totaled four tackles, no sacks and nine QB hits, unofficially fourth on the team. He was also in for 90 plays on special teams.

As for Bell, he’s the 6’0″, 219-pound RB out of UCLA who has a healthy 4.5-yard average per carry in his career, but the sample is limited: 131 carries for 589 yards, all in 22 games (three starts) with Chicago in 2009, ’11 and this season. He has one career touchdown, on a 25-yard reception in the Bears’ fall-from-ahead loss to the Seahawks last season. And he had his career-long 72-yard run in his first game as a pro for the Bears vs. the Eagles in 2009.

John Holt, our reporter, will join the locker room scrum to talk with K.Bell following today’s practice for, in case anyone forgot, the Rams game on Sunday in St. Louis.

CB Isaiah Trufant was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after his short-lived reunion with his brothers at CenturyLink Field. Trufant injured his left knee as he and Garrett McIntyre were going for the tackle of Leon Washington at the end of Leon’s opening punt return in the first quarter of Sunday’s game.

Injury Picture Update

The Jets’ injury report after Wednesday’s first full practice of the week:

Did Not Practice — WR Stephen Hill (illness), RB Bilal Powell (concussion). Ryan said Hill was sent home today.

Limited — RB-KR Joe McKnight (ankle), DT Sione Po‘uha (low back/ankle), LB Bart Scott (toe).

Full — TE Jeff Cumberland (wrist), DT Mike DeVito (finger), DT Kenrick Ellis (knee), WR Clyde Gates (shoulder), DT Damon Harrison (thumb), WR Jeremy Kerley (heel), S LaRon Landry (heel), C Nick Mangold (ankle/thumb), G Brandon Moore (hip), LB Calvin Pace (shoulder), QB Mark Sanchez (back), G Matt Slauson (knee), S Eric Smith (knee), QB Tim Tebow (ribs)

Click here for the Jets’ updated injury report each day after 4 p.m. ET.

The Jets have had a longer injury list than any opponent on any day this season, but no foe has had a shorter list than the Rams today. They list only three players, all as limited at today’s workouts near the Arch: WR Austin Pettis (toe), DE Eugene Sims (knee) and S Darian Stewart (knee). All three are backups and only Pettis played in last week’s tie at San Francisco.

    Is anyone surprised? the team is fractured? Really? Gee Wiz we all saw this coming since the end of last season and that is why I advocated firing Rex last year. He is one of the worst head coaches in the league form every view point.
    As for Tebow it is ridiculous for anyone to say he is a horrible QB yada yada but he his a winner! and brings passion to the game something severly lacking on this team. Jamarcus Sanchez is a Zombie out there.
    Secondly Tebow took a horrible Bronco team under Orton and carried the team to the playoffs and beat the Steelers in the playoffs last year two things Sanchize-Not has never done!!!!!!!!
    Play Tebow now!

  2. By Frank on Nov 14, 2012 | Reply

    Does Tebow play ugly? Yes he does…so what he is a winner period end of story. He ia also a natural born leader and elevates the players around him neither of which Jamarcus Sanchez is or does.
    Play Tebow now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tim was brought here , To be a personal protector, His personal agenda to fix locker room, Finally we picked up Bell for his 4-5 per healthy average, Right And Sanchez will be nominated the hall of frame, Man if i weren’t so disgusted. I would nominate Rex for stand up of the year, Lets start with Tim -T as PP LOLOLOL Good one Rex, $10Million door stop. Next him making it his Personal agenda to fix locker room LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.. Why Rex? did you become Interior designer or Contractor Now on Bell, lets see if Rex plays Bell more then one carry a game….Unless he gains a healthy average if so Rex will cut him or we’ll never hear from again. he wouldn’t want Mike -T to look worse then he already does,

    Just finished listening to Rex’s presser. I have always supported Rex, from day #1 when many are calling for his head. That said, I can honestly say I have not heard that amount of double talk since the October presidential debates. The entire presser just wreaked of double talk. Not a good thing.

    Obviously the cancer still remains in the locker room. Can’t bash a teammate like that, no matter what, no matter how poorly they play, it is unacceptable.

    LT seems to think it is Scott and Cro…I hope Cro is not part of it, I really like him, but if it is true then time to cut bait. Scott will be gone next year anyway, Can’t Wait.

    If the Jets already made up their mind that Tebow is not a starting QB, then bench Sanchez and give McElroy a chance. We have to find out what we have.

    Mike T, Rex, and Sparano all need to go. If I was Woody I would have fired them all heading into the bye week. Rex is a good coach, just not a head coach. He needs to go back to D-Coordinator.

    Boy this team is falling apart fast. How could anyone on that team rip Tim Tebow who would run through a wall for them. And on top of it doing it, not even having enough guts to put your name on it. Also have to vent about Rex. How could he not even think about starting Tebow or the kid from Alabama. There is NO WAY either one of them can be as bad as Sanchez is right now. I have been a die hard Jets fan for 35 years, but I have to say i am embaressed and very frustrated with this team right now. Mr.Johnson, you have got to make some major moves or else you will be losing ticket sales and die hard fans like myself!

    Well, glad to see a new thread. I beleive that if by secret agreement all news media treated Tebow as a back up and player who runs the wildcat occasionally like Brad Smith did a lot of this annoying, un-needed fluff would be eliminated. IF Tebow is such a great person and competitor he should evaluate his situation. He was traded from a team that he took from 1-4 to the playoffs. I’m sure Denver wasn’t concerned about fans wanting Tebow over Manning. His current OC loves the wildcat and he is has little playing time. Many players say he is not an NFL QB. That said Tebow should look in the mirror and consider his options. He runs well but is not a starting RB. He needs to practice catching & blocking to become a TE. QB is over.

    This was very easy to predict. The Jets are going nowhere and now controversey has reared its ugly head. Lest you forget Jets fans, I had predicted a 4 or 5 win season. We are right on schedule for that to happen. If they are lucky they might win 1or 2 more but I doubt that. This team needs a complete revamping from top to bottom including Rex and Tanny. who both need to be shown the door. Rex now sounds like Kotite and Tannenbaum is clueless. We are back to square one before Parcells arrived in 1997. What a nightmare!

    Just finished my Jet reading on ESPN/NY/Tebow and something came to mind. The players saying he is terrible can not be without merit. Is he a QB? In college yes. In NFL NO! The list of Hiesman winners who failed in the NFL is a long one. Back to how the HC and OC really feel about Tebow. Watched the very good presser with McElroy going into detail about “playing” Wilson on scout team. It took a while BUT doesn’t the backup QB usually run the scout team? It gives him snaps that he can not get with the 1rst team. I have to wonder if Tebow is not good enough to run the scout team then perhaps he shouldn’ be the backup. Again i am not putting McElroy in the HOF but before we release him and he goes to HOF for another team we need to know.

    Looking into next season, the Jets must absolutely re-sign:
    LaRon Landry
    Dustin Keller
    Brandon Moore

    Now, as for other important players you should really consider re-signing:
    Matt Slauson *
    Nick Folk (I’m shocked even typing this one but he’s been good this year)
    Austin Howard *
    Isaiah Trufant *
    Tanner Purdum (As you can see, I’m considering everyone)
    Mike DeVito
    Josh Mauga
    Lex Hilliard

    * = bit more important

    Respect the veterans on this team but its time to cut ties with Calvin Pace, Bryan Thomas and Bart Scott. We need younger linebackers, Demario should be a good replacement for Scott and David Harris will continue to be an awesome tackler. We seriously need a pass rusher. I don’t understand why Tannenbaum interfered when Rex was set on Chandler Jones during the draft. I like Coples but we really need a legit OLB. Wish we had guys like Von Miller or Aldon Smith on this roster.

    Tim Tebow is famous for two firsts in NFL history and they wont likely ever be taken away, no matter what people say or try to do.

    1. He took a failing franchise into the playoffs and won a game. Then got fired.

    2. Became the first backup quarterback in the history of the NFL to be blamed for the starters ineptitude.

    If anyone really thinks tebow is going to fracture a lockerroom they need the brain examined. You wont find a single NFL player that will call Tebow a bad team mate. He may not be a good quarterback. And he may not be the answer for the Jets.

    But dont say he is the problem.

    Lets all look at the TEBOW DEBACLE REALISTICALLY. John Elway (one of the GREATEST QBS EVER )was kind enough to GIVE TEBOW TO US. Elway (who once again MAY know a thing or two about quarterbacking )didnt even want TEBOW there to back up his 38 year old qb (WHO HAPPENED TO BE COMING OF 2 BIG TIME NECK OPERATIONS )Whose judgement of talent do we trust ELWAY (WITH HOW MANY SB -PLAYOFF WINS )OR MIKE T (GHOLSTEN ,SANCHEZ WILSON DUCCA ECT )If Tebow was brought here to sell advertising dollars fine BUT ONE THING WE DO KNOW HES NOT A LEG NFL STARTER

    Me and Spicer butted heads over Sanchez for months, circumstances this season changed his mind, he’s not hiding, he’s on the site open to shots, as opionated as always. I defended Rex against people who said his big mouth and buddy, buddy leadership style would backfire. It did. I was wrong. There were even a few on this site that thought T-Baum was a good GM. Where are they now?

    Man I don’t want to watch Sanchez next week but I think Ron Alexander sumed up Tebow pretty good on the last thread. It ain’t going to be like Denver last year if the put him in as starter. And MacElroy’s got a snowball shot in — to get the nod. Going to be a long ugly season if the Rams win…. Been there before …long and ugly…

    Rex does/t think he will loose his locker room eh. News flash Rex, this locker room has been a getting worse since you got. here. Rex knows defence, but is way over his head as a head coach.

    He have all enjoyed the success of his first 2 seasons and some were excited about Sanchez/s play, but you had to be an idiot to think that this wasn’t going to happen. Signing like Pace, Scott, Sanchez, Tebow, Draft picks Ducasse and Connor. These were horrible moves.

    Here we go again Jets are right back where they left off from last season with the trash’s talking in the locker room and on tweeter. If I was the owner of this team I would want to know who post those remarks on tweeter. I have some idea who they were and I’m sure Woody and Tanny & Rex knows as well who those players are. I would release them and try to make a some trades for them just get them out of town they aren’t the kinda of players you want on your teams.

    I am sorry but Tim Tebow should stop being MR nice guy and refuse to play another down. He has no real team mates just backstabbers who are the ones letting us fans down. The Jets would be better off losing the rest of their games and get rid of every one and start over. Please Tim Tebow tell the Jets to pound sand.

    Wilkerson picked up a fumble courtesy of Mike Devito and ran for a touchdown. What I noticed that his girth is not that of a protypical defensive end. Most like Deacon Jones Joe Green Mark Gastineau, Alex Haley, Jason pierre Paul etc are slim wasted abale to pivot faster to make a pass rush possible…Apparently this goes unnoticed by the Jets at draft time Also Kendal and Faneca today are better than Slauson and Ducasse inblocking,power blocking and running the sweep plays…something the Jets have lacked since their retirement. Even Mawae could hike pivot and run a sweep which Mangold does not seem to accomplish. this is why there is no ground and pound and this is why your quarterback makesdesperate passes and fumbles under pressure

    It seems that the wheels have fallen off completely and, sadly, time again for the same old full make over. You mean to tell me that we cant have a successful regime that can last more than 3 or 4 years before busting it up and starting over? We have been doing that every 3 or 4 yrs since the 70″s! And with the guaranteed money that some of you guys are talking about, it sounds like we are doomed for next year too? Is that why Mr T keeps going to the scrap heap for guys to fill holes? No money left for real talent? No wonder why we cant catch, throw, run or block! We are fielding a bunch of rejects and castoffs from other teams! Where do you begin again? An Elway type to call the shots , GM etc? Truly a circus.

    Frank, Tebow won a few key games on a DEN team with a great D and better RBs and WRS than we have now, so I wouldn’t get too excited. Of course, we got nothing to lose by playing him since we’re going nowhere this yr. If Rex and whoever else in Florham Park could just admit Sanchez might be a bust, we could split the rest of the yr between TT and Mc at QB, see what we’ve got, and prepare to make some smart, forward-looking moves at QB next yr. But that would make too much sense and would involve admitting to mistakes, better to keep wasting time on talk about the playoffs…

    Going into the season my expectations for this group were not very high. Considering the way last season ended the worst move you could make would be acquiring celebrity b/u QB T. Tebow. The team had so many needs that were more pressing(WR/TE/OL/RB/LB and S), most of these problems still need improvement before the person playing QB will have a chance to show his true value.
    In short, GM M. Tannenbaum has dismantled a championship roster in less than two seasons. His moves are wrong more often than they are right and that is never good. He trades up in nearly every draft which has now revealed a roster with razor thin talent due to injuries. I would start fixing the Jets by replacing the GM who has the team in cap trouble too.

    Keith there is no doubt the drafts since Rex showed up have been abysmal just like the idiotic attempt at Asomuagha all of the personel decisions made with Rex have seen a serious down grade of talent. Every GM tries to get the players the coach wants for his program. Mangini was a lousy coach but he had a great eye for talent and the roster he put together si what Rex won with. Rex’s first year if the Colts don’t default the game at the end of the season Rex finishes 8-8 and misses the playoffs. Rex has been lucky and I said it at the end of last season we have been playing fools gold with Rex. He is an embarrassment and a lousy leader its just that simple.
    All great leaders and men of character admit mistakes and make the adjustments.

    Jamarcus Sanchez has been the worst QB in the NFL over the last 12 games and Rex can’t admit its time to bench him. What is truely astonishing is that he won’t even call him out. He continues to blindly support him and coddle him which is exactly is the propblem here makig things worse.
    Listening to Carrols remarks at the end of the game saying Sanchez is bewildered why Tebow is here sheds the true light on this mess. If TanWoody didn’t intend to play or put pressure on Sanchez in the event he faulters like he did they should have never brought him here in the first place.
    This organization is a complete mess from top to bottom.

    For those who are calling for Rex’s head, in your future comments give your choice on HC – its easy to say fire someone however follow that up with your choice to replace him. There is not much out there – being a HC in the NFL is no easy task. I am not saying I condone Rex’s style however unless Cowher or Gruden are available, not sure who you are going to get that would be better. One thing is for sure, they need to seriously consider a new G.M. with someone from an organization that has a history of drafting well. We are headed for a top 10 (if not 5) pick and I don’t think you want Mike T. handling that pick. The contracts he has handed out have put this team in a salary cap mess and he has proven not to be the best judge of talent

    , Here’s my take on Tim Tebow, as some have said man is a trooper, granted, none here can say he will become Elite even a winner, Had success in College some in NFL. Elway wanted PM for same reason Mike-T go’s after all these Has beens from other teams, Only his has been worked out along with his solid draft picks, What I for one know 4 sure we’ll never know without giving him a fair shot, I think all these players should shut their Mouths, get on the practice field, after apologizing to fans, Owner, and Coaches, and start earning their $$$,. 90% of these players aren’t playing up to standard of a professional team, Let alone run their mouths faster than their feet, Both TT and Gmac need a look, us fans deserve that much

    Lets be kind and say that anyone could see after last year that Sanchez’s future as a starter in the NFL was “uncertain ” A smart GM, no not even a smart GM but any GM would realize this and begin to plan for the eventuality that he is not going to cut it. Any GM must always also plan for the real possibility of season ending injury. Our GM extends this QB with the “uncertain” future with an extension that has huge guar. money and an untradeable price tag way beyond his proven skill set. What some would say was inevitable has come to pass sooner rather than later and there is “no viable option ” This is beyond incompetant, it boarders on the bizzare and gives new meaning to the word unfit.

    I was a pro Rex guy. I thought he was a great defensive mind & that players liked playing for him. I did not mind that he did not know anything about O. Most head coaches are former co ordinators who specialize in 1 side of the ball. What they do is hire a guy who is expericnced & proven in what it is they do on the other side. First Rex talked alot & I was okay with that as long as you can back it up & win. The old saying is dont talk the talk if you cant walk the walk! Also he had the chance to bring in a proven OC this offseason & he brought in Sparano a guy who has never been a OC before. Finally after last year he said I dont know how good our team will be but I am 100% certain that we will not have in fighting & be a better teamates

We need a head coach who is a former OC the NFL with there current rules is all O based. You can not hit the QB high, you can not hit the QB low, you can not touch the WR after 5 yards.

    Because of what has happened this year I now think Rex should go. But even before this year started I said MR.T should go. 1 His drafting track record is not good. Gholston, Wilson, Sanchez, Greene & Ducasse (do i need to keep going). 2 I was happy with some of his trades when they happened but in the end they ultimately did not work out. Trading up for Sanchez, Greene, giving up valueable draft picks for players liek Braylon than not signing them when there contract is up. If you do not intend on signing a guy long term after trading for them. Dont bother to trade for them right? Take those picks & get players! To the failed free agent sigings like Pace to the bad personel decsions like letting Braylon, Cotchery, Woody & Faneca go. Than

    To add to my above post the new GM has to value draft picks & do 1 of 3 things 1 stay where he is & not trade up 2 trade down & get more picks or 3 if he does trade picks it better be to acquire a player long term & not as a 1 or 2 year rental!

    I the beginning I was a big Rex supporter. Sadly that has gone down hill fast. I don’t know if his decisions are his or sent down from the top. If they are down from the top I feel bad for him. The FO making him a joke by continuing to play people who should be on the bench or cut. If it is all Rex well . . . I guess some co-ordinaters are just not HC material. He looks defeated and frustrated. Next year, which considering saleries, will be a rebuilding year I would like to see Tanny gone, scouts replaced, OC gone, QB coach gone, strenght coach gone, and see how Rex does on his own. Dump the underperforming players now starting with Sanchez. We will not have much money but can look at a lot of players for 2014. Look what Indy did this year.

    Thou I do not think that Tebow is the long term answer at QB. I also totally disagree with Frank about Tebow making the players around him better. Tebow was put into the perfect setting. 1 They totally changed there O to fit his skill set. 2 With Holmes out we do nto have a Thomas or Decker on this roster 3 Greene is no McGahee thats for sure. 4 We do not have close to the pass rush Denver has with Vin Miller & Elvis Dumervil 5 With Revis out there secondary with Champ Bailey & Brain Dawkins is better than ours. Dont get me wrong I think we should play Tebow but he would have NONE of the things with us that he had going for him lat year & I think he wouild get EXPOSED BIG TIME!

    What the Jets are missing is Tebow is not a good practice player. So what they see from him on a daily basis is not what they are going to get in a game situation. While again I do not think he is the long term answer I do think if the Jets want / have any hope of rallying to make a run at the playoffs they should play him. 1st what ever confidence Mark Sanchez had is totally shot as a QB you have to have confidence. Also teams rally around new QB’S when they are put in. As far as Tebow the running game would be better cause he is a threat to run the ball. Greene would do a little better cause other teams would be so worried about Tebow running the ball that would free up Greene a little. Also when Tebow drops back to pass & nothing is open

    he is a threat to run the ball out of the pocket. Lastly the longer drives based off of a better running game will have the D on the field less so they should do better spending less time on the field. Not that I think we can win a Super Bowl with this guy but I think at this point it would be slightly better & we can get the process started now of the front office seeing the he is not the guy & we can ultimatley move on to hopefully drafting a franchise QB!

    I feel bad for Tim, heck for both QBs. Both have been on the end of being backstabbed by teammates in recent memory. Tebow, like 2 days ago and Sanchez last season. Both QBs have nothing working for them, I’ll tell you one thing, if both QBs were to be starters someplace else, they will be more successful there than they are at the current time. This organization is just a mess. These players need to stop being backstabbers. Tebow is a great kid and has done nothing wrong and he’s suddenly a scapegoat. Tebow, I want you to succedd but you will not find success here, please go to Jacksonville or someplace else where you will used properly. He doesn’t have to be the QB but at least use him as a weapon here Jets! As for Sanchez, he’s been…..

    ……horrible the last couple of games. But still, I stand behind him, why?? The guy has NO weapons! As a Jets official said, “its garbage” what he is throwing to. Kerley and Keller as not enough, we need more guys to be consistent like those two. Shonn Greene said recently a change needs to be made and hinted at the QB position. No Greene, the real change that needs to be made is at RB. The guy can barely get 2 yards out of a carry. I hope they cut him next season. Joe McKnight needs to start, he’s fast and needs more experience at running the ball. The guy has potential but this organization does not realize it. Greene and these Schilens like receivers need to be cut or released immediately Thats the CHANGE that this offense needs now.

    JETS, please release Tebow so that NE will pick him up and he can learn from a real QB and a real coach. Sanchez is better in practice? So what, if it doesn’t show at game time than what difference does it make? When the lights are on and the pressure is high that is when Tebow performs not at practice. Rex and Co. are waiting until the NE game to throw Tebow in and when or if he doesn’t do well he will say see I told you Mark was the better choice. Just a bunch of crap!

As far as Sanchez, saying “he feels sorry for tebow” man up and tell the team he is PART of the PROBLEM as a leader admit your own faults. I feel sorry that Tebow is the scape goat.

    Belligerent Blinka nailed it! If Mark Sanchez played at least somewhat like a pro, we would never hear the name Tim Tebow. The fact that they brought him in to be a b/u QB and occasionally run the wildcat would have been a non factor. But, since Mark Sanchez has played horrific all season, we have a full fledged QB controversy, even though we don’t even have one average pro QB.

    Belligerent Blinka was also spot on re: the WRs. For a “real” pro QB, seperation really don’t need to be any more then 12 to 18 inch’s, the WR don’t always have to be “wide open” for a pro QB. A passer with any kind of accuracy will get it done with that limited seperation. Mark Sanchez can not. THAT is the problem, not the WRs. How would anyone rate the WRs in Miami? How is that rookie over there doing so far? An even better question, where do you think he will be in his 4th year?

    If anyone here is still a Schotty supporter, hopefully you watched the end of the 49er / Ram game. When the Rams had the ball in OT on a 3rd and 2, Schotty did what he has done for years – be predictable and conservative and call a basic run play. Sure enough, they got stoned and were forced to go for a field goal. Then, they took too much time to get the kick off and what was initially the game winning field goal, had to be kicked again from 5 yards back and was no good. He is still the same, very predictable and unorganized. Whether or not Sparano works out, getting rid of Schotty was the right thing to do. Why do you think the only job Schotty was offered prior to the Ram job was a college coordinator position?

    The Jets have been through this before. Coaches are hired and after a promising year or two, the front office drafts or trades for fewer talented players. The management then throws their hands up and blames the coach for the lack of winning even though the coach has less tools with which to work. Had the management retained the offensive and defensive lines of 2009 and 2010 the Jets would have many more wins. This management is like previous owners. They have not retained good talent. Tebow was Woody Johnson’s idea and he imposed it on Ryan. There is no other explanation as to the lack of Tebow’s use by Ryan. I’m a season ticketholder since year one (1965) and I’ve seen this before by successive owners.

    I was a fire Schotty guy. In reality he quickly realized what he had in Sanchez and tailored an offense to his short comings ( and in hindsight with great success ). It now becomes apparent why the TE was such a sucessfull and popular target for Sanchez the first 2 yrs. Only when Schotty was forced to take the leash off in the 3rd year did the real and vast weakness of this QB become exposed. Sanchez is for various reasons ( enumerated many times) a very ineffective, even awfull medium to deep passer and a very poor pocket QB.. Schotty had the wisdom to quickly realize that unleashed he was a loose cannon, a human turnover machine and sack magnet in a longer passing based offense. Schotty I apologize,

    Karan, your point about MC not having any weapons is ligit… That being said, it doesn’t account for him under throwing, over throwing, throwing behind or just not seeing wide open receivers. He doesn’t protect the ball, has no pocket presence, and makes the same mistakes over and over. And it’s not just the last couple of games as you say. It started last season and has continued to the present. Not bashing you, just saying you may be giving him too much benefit of the doubt as does this whole organization, for what ever reason. Also, Powell and Mcknight are injured, so getting rid of Greene now would not be wise, as they just picked up Bell to fill in while getting rid of Maybin.

I’m not defending Sanchez as today’s QB, but I am saying we need to give the credit to the kid for what he has done in the past, it’s unfair to just ignore it. I’m not sure what has happened to him but after being present at Centurylink field last Sunday, Sanchez doesn’t even look like a 3rd string QB out there. after this diplorable season is over we look a either Fress agency, the draft, or Greg McClroy, either way the experiment with #6 has to end.

But since you post more than I do, you must be really smart. Tell me, did you even watch MS as a Junior at USC? I did, and I wasn’t impressed. Even so, we picked him and I wanted him to succeed as much as any Jet Fan. But it didn’t take more than two seasons to know he was not the guy. In hind-sight, we should have used our 1st round pick, #17, to select Josh Freeman and then use the picks we traded away to get MS to build the offense around Freeman. Chill Buddy. It’s still just a game.

He is a free agent after this season & the way he is playing he will either be the backup RB for the Jets or the back up on another team (cause no team would sign him as there starter) or not be on the Jets next year at all.

    JetBlue, Let me guess you knew Rex was bad for years as you suggest above. Um until week 15 of last year we were 8 & 5 looking like a lock for a playoff berth & the 2 years prior to that we made the AFC champinship game. So up until that point Rex was the best thing since sliced bread to EVERY Jet fan. So to say anything other wise is comical at best. FYI it is week 11 of 2012 week 15 of 2011 is less than a year ago prior to that EVERYTHING was 7th heaven. Also did you get that hindesight on Josh Freeman when he had 16 TDS & 22 PICKs last year? Or was it now that he is doing good? About Mark at USC yes I know he was a junior & if being 15 & 1 having 34 TDS & 10 picks & throwing for 5 TDS in the rose bowl to beat penn state the #!1 D in

    Its time for a new GM, Mr T need to go. I don’t like Woody Johnson but we are stuck with him. God Bless Leon Hess. But if Johnson want to sell PSL and more hot dogs he should try hiring Bill Cowher as the GM, and HC, for the NY, Jets. or he Could bring in Terry Bradway as the GM, or to help out Tanny or signed Jon Gruden as the HC,

    Spiceless: There you go with the stats again. The difference between you and me is that I use instincts, not stats. Did you ever think that maybe a team can win despite having a bad QB (Ravens/Dilfer)? As for Rex, I guess I’m in my own world because I never thought he was the best thing for this team. I gave him a chance and despite some success, he never said anything that gave me the impression that has too bright. Face it, take away the 11-5 year and you have 9-7, 8-8, and now 3-6. We were winning game based on a strong running game a defense, most of which Rex inherited. What has he done to improve the team since he got here? Nothing. It’s only gotten worse. Plus, for the 2nd yr in row he has lost the locker room. Cont.

    Cont: Nobody respects Rex as a Head Coach. He’s made predictions and promises and fallen flat on his face. He now looks down at the floor during his press conferences because even he knows that he’s out of excuses. As for MS, Penn St. hadn’t faced a team that could pass the ball all year. Number 1 D coming out of the big 10 means nothing. MS played against defenses where his receivers were wide open and were great after the catch when running slants that started out as 10 yard passes. NFL is so much faster. He’s one of the worst starting QB in the league and is not learning from the many mistakes he makes. Even Jaws says it’s time for him to sit down. He’s awful & you know that I’ve been saying that for over 2 years. Insight!

    Guys, lets stop the bickering & fighting!( apparently,if you believe Menish Mehta,theres enough of that going on in the lockerroom!)Heres the deal in a nutshell; Tannenbaum has proven to be a disaster as a talent evaluator. He must go! Rex is clearly in over his head as a head coach!Its one thing call a bad play or desighn a bad scheme vs. a specific opponent. Its another thing all together to loose the pulse of your own team 2 years in a row! Inexcusable! This pre-season most of us here were looking forward to a new season and getting back to our recent winning ways.However, as the preseason games started it was clear to most of us we were in trouble-

    cont.- like the last three games of last season the offence struggled.W.Hunter was a 100% disaster. Sanchez could not move the team. The recievers dropped passes at an alarming rate. The defence was supposed to be faster as guys lost weight and trained harder? Have any of you seen any sighn of any of these supposed improvements. The answere is obviously NO! So is there really any wonder we are such a mess now? I can understand why guys like S.C.Joe & Ira want to win as many games as possiable and see what happans? But I ask you all, has this group of players & coaches or upper management given us any reason to believe they are remotely capable of turning things around?If you believe they will I have oceanfront property in Nebraska for you?

    I’m not saying he didn’t have his faults nor that he wouldn’t aggravate you but his teams were rarely penalized and well-composed. When you fire a coach who’s had two of three winning seasons having shoved Brett Favre down his throat…karma will be bad….for a while.

    You might need a human sacrifice
