Let’s end the rhetoric when it comes to who will have the biggest voice when it’s time to name the Jets starting quarterback for the 2013 season opener. It’s not going to be coach Rex Ryan or general manager John Idzik. It’s going to be offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
Why? It’s his offense.
Idzik on Saturday and Ryan yesterday have spent two days trying to convince us the decision on whether Mark Sanchez or Geno Smith will be behind center against the Bucs will be “a collective effort.” Seemingly just about everyone on the staff will be consulted before a decision is rendered.
“It’s always going to be a New York Jet decision. It’s always a team thing” Ryan said yesterday echoing Idzik’s words on Saturday.
Truth is the only voice that matters is Mornhinweg’s. Clearly Ryan has handed over the entire offense to Mornhinweg who joined the Jets after serving as the offensive coordinator for the Eagles the last seven seasons. With a resume that includes working with Brett Favre

Rex Ryan took a picture with a Jets fan this weekend, which normally wouldn’t be a big deal because I’m assuming he does so quite a bit. But this wasn’t just any ordinary Jets fan, this was a Jets fan wearing a shirt that confesses “This Team Makes Me Drink.” And judging by the rosiness of those cheeks, it makes that fan drink a lot. Can’t really blame him, I’d probably...
Football season is almost upon us and now it’s time to make fun of the sh*t show that is the New York Jets. However, Patriots fans don’t even have to break a sweat because Jets fans already know the J-E-T-S is a J-O-K-E.

Love him or hate him, you have to admit one thing, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is entertaining. Ryan might have a career in politics because it’s obvious he’s never met a camera he didn’t like. Never one to shy away from controversy, Ryan appears more subdued this training camp. Gone are all the post season promises. Instead of being the braggart, Ryan seems as if he...
Cortland, NY - The last two seasons haven't exactly gone well for Rex Ryan and the Jets, mistakes were made, games were lost and lessons were learned, but from here on out the focus has shifted to the upcoming season as Ryan tries to distance himself from last year's losing season."Well you go back and you try to learn from it and we spent all offseason trying to learn...
Rex Ryan is trying to diffuse any potential rift between him and new Jets general manager John Idzik.

The media would like to know who’s going to start at quarterback for the New York Jets, but Rex Ryan is in no hurry to name one.
A day after Jets GM John Idzik proclaimed that he would have some say in who starts at quarterback for the Jets, Ryan got on the defensive, and accused the media of making much out of nothing.

Rex Ryan has a prediction: If the New York Jets can draft South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, he won't be the coach.
Ryan, considered by many to be in a make-or-break season, delivered a gem when asked Saturday how much of his daily discussions with general manager John Idzik involve looking beyond this season.
''It's safe to say I won't be here...
There’s an old saying that states a picture is worth a thousand words. For frustrated New York Jets fans, this one might invoke a few more than that.
Last season, the Jets went 6-10, behind a passing offense that struggled mightily with Mark Sanchez at the helm and a Rex Ryan defense that was less intimidating than it had been in past years. Add in the drama that Tim Tebow brought...
It’s rough being the player that replaces a legend, yet those are exactly the shoes Milliner will walk in, as he tries to replace the consensus top cornerback in all of football.
After Darrelle Revis was traded to the Buccaneers, the Jets used the 9th overall pick in the draft, to selected the extremely talented Milliner out of Alabama.
Milliner will face a ton of pressure being...
