New York Jets – Can They Break Ugly Patriots Regular Season Trend?

Since Rex Ryan has taken over as Head Coach of the New York Jets in 2009, there have been a few ongoing trends with the team. They generally play very good defense that can be shaky at holding leads late. Offensively, they prefer to run the football and have had ongoing inconsistencies. Rex owns Buffalo. Miami owns Rex. New England? Boom or bust. They’ve had their good moments...

Rex pleads with fans for help

Rex Ryan made a guarantee for Sunday against the New England Patriots. Issuing a challenge to New York Jets fans Ryan said Monday they will win the game if the fans can re-create the raucous stadium atmosphere from Sept. 20 2009. That day the Jets hit Tom Brady so hard and so often that they beat the stuffing out of his UGG boots -- that is if he wore them in those days. "...

New York Jets Defensive Snap Count – Analysis and Previewing Week 7

Due to Rex Ryan’s complicated defensive schemes that sometimes put players in positions they’re not fully accustomed to, I decided to also note where New York Jets players were lining up, along with tallying their snap count.  For example, I notched down what “techniques” defensive lineman were lined up in, if safeties were playing on the deeper level or in the front seven’s...

Jets rookie Sheldon Richardson: The NFL protects Tom Brady

Sheldon Richardson is an impressive rookie defensive lineman, and is becoming very comfortable in his role as a masher for Rex Ryan's defense. He is also very comfortable speaking his mind with the NY media. With the Jets readying themselves for their second game against the rival Patriots, that is a good recipe for a quote or two in the lead up. Speaking with Steve Serby of...

Rex Ryan wants to beat the Patriots so bad he's telling players to abstain from sex, or maybe he isn't

So, this one's a little bit weird. Josh Cribbs told the New York media that Ryan told the team to "Say no to the wife" this week. Which he meant innocently, as in rest up your legs, don't take out the trash, etc. etc. Of course, in typical Ryan fashion, the comment became a point of mockery. NFL.com: "I can tell he really wants this game," said Cribbs...

Jets injury update: Rex Ryan ‘absolutely’ optimistic Dee Milliner will play

When the New York Jets selected Dee Milliner in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, they were hoping for more instant impact from the player replacing Darrelle Revis.
