The T.O. Show appears to be just about played out, wheezing and gasping for a last breath of relevance on Tuesday as he "worked out" for NFL teams, none of whom bothered to show.
ESPN and The NFL Network were there, but that felt kind of like break-up sex -- a last final nod to better days and a reminder of why it is probably best they do not see each other any more going forward. The relationship always was toxic, an immature and psychologically fragile player immolating while chased and chastised simultaneously by media types including myself for soley our own benefit. And your entertainment.
T.O. and his media frenemies like myself need to fist bump and say "good game." It was a pretty good run considering the protagonist was slightly crazy, and we so willingly participated in his every drama.
I once sat in a crowded room of reporters in Dallas after an "accidental" T.O. overdose and diligently took notes as Lil' Kim Etheredge lectured on how ...

Rex Ryan talks to Jeane about the Jets win over the Chargers and a little bye week break.
The day after the Ravens dismantled the Jets , Rex Ryan knew he made a mistake and was ready to admit it.
Ryan realized his team had to get back to running the ball the way it had in his first two seasons as head coach. He met with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and then with the team to tell them that they were going back to Ground and Pound.
Three weeks later, that...
Calvin Pace's play has been talked up by Rex Ryan and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine lately, with both saying they believe he is having the best season in Ryan's three years as coach.
The New York Jets currently sit at 4-3, likely a game or two behind the place many people thought they would be at this point of the season. When looking at their remaining nine games, it is very conceivable the Jets could still finish with 10 or 11 wins. Of course the deciding factor in that is going to be if they play like they did in the second half against San Diego for the remainder...

The New York Jets defense has problems and shortcomings, as any unit in the NFL does. However, thanks to Rex Ryan and Mike Pettine’s ability to gameplan on a weekly basis they can still come up with big time performances, which will allow the Jets to remain a playoff contender throughout the rest of the year.
One of the other reasons for optimism with the Jets defense in their...
The swagger is just part of the DNA of the Jets now, LaDainian Tomlinson said. Wins, losses, no matter the record, the Jets are going to have that swagger. Our coach is Rex Ryan and they say you are a product of your head coach. We certainly are. That confidence is never lacking, Tomlinson said.
In a month, outside linebacker Aaron Maybin has gone from a first-round flameout to a player the Jets are counting on to consistently make plays.
"[I have seen] great production," coach Rex Ryan said yesterday as the team entered its bye week following Sunday's 27-21 win over the Chargers...
