Rex Ryan and the New York Jets did not play this past weekend. That has not kept him or his team out of the news, however, as Ryan rarely remains silent for more than a day or so at a time. he just can’t help himself. But after another disappointing start to the 2012 NFL season that has resulted in a 3-5 start, Ryan admits that his Jets are not really in playoff contention in what could very well be his final season coaching in New York unless things drastically turn around.
You all know the back story. Woody Johnson continues to surround himself with bad football people, most notably in general manager Mike Tannenbaum. He brings in the wrong players and re-signs current players to ridiculous contracts. Look no further than the two headed quarterback monster that Tannenbaum created in New York with Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow.
To put it kindly, it has not worked.
Ryan is not lost on the fact that if the team’s struggles continue, it will spell bad news for everyone in the Jets’ organ...
