Jets owner Woody Johnson has fired GM Mike Tannenbaum today, who was expected to be fired once the 2012 season ended. Mike Tannenbaum has been the Jets general manager since 2006 and led the New York Jets to three playoff appearances including two AFC Championship games. This past season has to be worse year for Mike Tannenbaum who had the worse offseason when it came down to player personal decisions. He had no offensive weapons in the passing game for Mark Sanchez and he brought it Tony Sparano who will be fired soon as the OC is worse than Brian Schottenheimer. I don't ever remember seeing a football team where twenty players who had one reception each in my lifetime. That stat tells me they have no playmakers at all. On the other hand, Rex Ryan will stay as head coach of the New York Jets. Woody Johnson seems to like Rex Ryan a lot and he felt Ryan was the best man for the HC job. Although, I think Rex Ryan needs to be fired. He is part of the problem where this ballclub is currently right now and it is now clear that he is a fluke as a head coach. He has no control of his football team, he has no QB and the team was overrated from the start he took over as the Jets head coach. The last two years the Jets have gone backwards and will go backwards from here on out. There is no hope with Rex Ryan and I gurantee they will do nothing to make the playoffs next season. Woody Johnson did the right thing be getting rid of Mike Tannenbaum, but he should've also got rid of Rex Ryan as well.
