Yesterday New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie said that he’s the team’s second best wide receiver now that head coach Rex Ryan plans on having a special offensive package for him.
Schillens wasn’t happy about Cromartie’s comments.
“We’ll address it on the football field,” said Schilens, the 6-foot-4 former Oakland Raiders receiver who signed with the Jets this offseason. “… I think it’s a slight, I’m not going to lie. I just wouldn’t say it, it’s not something I would say but I’m not him I guess.”
Ryan addressed the situation by letting everyone know he’s in charge.
“I’m going to say this right now, listen to me when I tell you this,” Ryan said, “I’m aware of what was said. OK? I’m on top of it, I’m telling you that right now. I’m on top of it, and it will not be a problem. And that’s all that I’m going to say about the whole thing.”
Looks like the Jets have already returned to their 2011 form.

Outside of new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, nobody really knows what the Jets are planning to do with their offense this season. At this point it wouldn’t shock me if that includes Rex Ryan, who we all know is a defensive-minded coach.

It didn’t take long for the New York Jets to undergo some turmoil, as they appear to be a team who just can’t seem to stay out of trouble every time they open their mouths. The best thing about the Jets’ controversy is that it is always someone new.
That is what makes it ever so interesting.
