Rex Ryan has taken some brutal criticism from the New York media for taking the day off on Saturday to attend his son’s game at Clemson amid cuts to get the Jets roster down to 53.
One person not criticizing Rex is his boss, Woody Johnson.
Johnson told the New York Daily News that he had no problem with Rex traveling to South Carolina to watch his son play.

Johnson was noncommittal about whether or not Ryan would return next season, but that’s a conversation for another day.
BEST OF MAXIM
The last several months, Rex Ryan has taken a lot of crap from media and the fans. Rightfully so. You cannot flap your gums as much as Rex did in his first few years, bragging and boasting your way to two AFC Title game appearances, and then not have to also answer for the failures of your football team, especially when you then decide to zip your lip. He is the captain of the ship...
I’m willing to cut Rex Ryan at least a little bit of slack this year. After all, he’s being put into a situation that few head coaches could succeed with.
The Jets’ current problems are many. They’re without offensive weapons, their team has become a lightning rod for negative attention, but biggest of all is the Jets’ lack of a starting quarterback. Geno Smith will...
Everything that is wrong with the media outrage over Rex Ryan going to see his son playing at Clemson can be summed up in one sentence written by Mr. You Can’t Boo New York Daily News writer Manish Mehta.
By all accounts, Ryan has been a great dad, but sometimes the job must take precedence.
Story should be over right there.

It’s been one helluva 14 or so days for Rex Ryan, but today just got a little better for the foot fetish fiend.…
Geno Smith may be the Jets starting quarterback against Darrelle Revis and the Bucs but there is no guarantee he’ll be starting anything beyond that. The Jets unleashed their triple threat Wednesday -- Rex Ryan GM John Idzik and owner Woody Johnson -- and from every angle they made it clear that the competition is continuing into the regular season.

To say the New York Jets are a mess is an insult to the word mess. Jets Owner Woody Johnson implied that Mark Sanchez was to blame for his shoulder injury:
“I don’t have any regrets,” Johnson said, via the NY Daily News. “He’s an experienced guy. I wish he hadn’t gotten hurt, but you got to protect yourself, too.
Rex Ryan (who needs to protect his own job) didn’t...
Mark Sanchez is not starting for the New York Jets against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. If you want to believe his shoulder injury is the reason for that, that’s your prerogative. The truth of the matter is the Jets’ brass is ready to move on from the Sanchez era, and Geno Smith brings […]
