1. The hiring of Tom Gamble as the New York Jets General Manager is not official yet and many are beginning to panic since he is interviewing with San Diego, while the Jets still interview Marc Ross and Scott Cohen. We remain confident in Bassett’s report and think the outline he provided this morning is a sensible explanation. Nothin...

Even when the Jets aren’t playing, the team manages to remain a main topic of conversation in New York by keeping its name in the city’s papers, even if the news of the day has absolutely nothing to do with actual football. Just last week, a photo published by the New York Daily News of head coach Rex Ryan sunning himself while on a vacation on Prairie Island in the Bahamas...
When the New York Jets fired quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh on Monday, the seeds were planted for the removal of offensive coordinator Tony Sparano.
If Cavanaugh was responsible for Mark Sanchez’s personnel development, Sparano was the man who assembled the blueprint for the entire unit’s disaster.

The 6-10 New York Jets have clearly flown off course. The new Jets GM, whoever finally ends up with the job, will be walking into a laundry list of issues the minute those Florham Park doors open. Steering the overall product on the field back to Super Bowl contender status won’t be easy. The following are the keys to the foundation. Questions that the new head honcho upstairs...
When the trade was announced last Spring that would bring Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, many were left scratching their heads. Had the team lost all confidence in Mark Sanchez? Did Rex and Woody fall in love with Tebow after he led a comeback win against the stout Jets defense? Was it a ploy to sell PSLs? The answer to all those questions might actually be a resounding yes. But...
Rex Ryan continues to leave an indelible mark on the New York Jets.
But the head coach also took time at the team's news conference on Tuesday to address his much-discussed tattoo of his wife wearing a Sanchez jersey, something photographers documented while he was in the Bahamas.
The coach said he has had it on his right arm for nearly three years, and was able to joke about...
Several teams had worse years than the Jets, but I don’t think anyone had a weirder year. Turned into a circus in the offseason by the media, the Jets lived up to the hype. Neither Mark Sanchez nor Tim Tebow led a touchdown drive all pre-season, but after a blowout win over the Bills week 1 and another win against the Dolphins week 3, this time in overtime, the Jets stood at 2...
Rex Ryan covered up his tacky tattoo of his wife clad only in a Mark Sanchez jersey with an even less subtle "I heart me" T-shirt.
Yesterday, the New York Jets head coach was spotted at the same Bahamas resort wearing the faded black tee shielding the public from the infamous ink on his right arm.
At least this fashion miscue can be removed without a laser.
Unlike most Jets fans, I wasn't aghast when the Jets didn't fire head coach Rex Ryan. I said all along that this trainwreck wasn't his fault. The Jets started making the right moves when they fired general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Now offensive coordinator Tony Sparano has gotten the axe. It shouldn't surprise anyone.Sparano, a friend of Ryans, was hired as OC when...
The New York Jets continued the overhaul of their offensive coaching staff with the firing of coordinator Tony Sparano on Tuesday, according to multiple reports. The move comes on the heels of quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh being told Monday that his contract will not be renewed when it expires in a few weeks, as first reported by The New York Daily News. Sparano, the former...
