The New York Jets have now dropped seven games in a row. The Jets have been a mess in recent years, and after posting a minus 84 point differential with a head coach that has sunk so much into the defensive side of the ball, one has to wonder how head coach Rex Ryan can even survive the 2014 NFL regular season. After being beaten soundly at home yesterday by their division foes, the Buffalo Bills, Ryan said he had no clue who would be the Jets starting quarterback for NFL Week Nine. It appears now that veteran Michael Vick might get the nod. I feel that Jets fans are not rejoicing.
Ryan has skirted around the edges of being fired in a highly dysfunctional club for several seasons now. The Jets have been mired in mediocrity for several seasons and as the front office changed, Sexy Rexy remained at the helm. He is running out of excuses.
Ryan is a great coach as far as bloggers and the media are concerned. He’s a soundbite a minute when he opens his mouth. His skill on the field is something different however. He has presided over several drafts that have focused clearly on defensive players. The New York offense has been grossly overlooked. The Jets have been in turmoil for the last several seasons. The team experimented with a toxic Tim Tebow, then continues to play around with second-year quarterback Geno Smith.
Mike Vick gets the starting nod in Week Nine. He’s his own turnover machine. Any of the Gang Green Faithful looking for Vick to stem the losing streak in Week Nine, needs to buy a scratch off lotto ticket. You have a better chance of winning there than on the field next Sunday.
There is no way Rex Ryan holds his job with the Jets after this season. The coach who is supposedly a defensive genius has a minus 84 point differential during the current seven-game losing streak. New York cleans some salary cap space and has several draft selections in 2015. The Jets have made no progress under Rex Ryan. It’s time for a complete overhaul in New York moving forward in 2015.
Rex Ryan has to go before the Jets can move forward.
