Those big, bold playoff guarantees from Rex Ryan and the New York Jets are a thing of the past.
Despite his team winning two straight games and putting itself right in the postseason mix, the Jets coach refuses to speak about anything except for New York's next opponent: the Tennessee Titans next Monday night.
Ryan says Monday that he has learned from previous seasons to tone down his guarantees, saying the fact the Jets (6-7) are a game under .500, ''I think you're probably not in the playoff conversation.'' New York actually is, though, despite having a sluggish offense and a struggling starting quarterback in Mark Sanchez.
The Jets are a game behind Pittsburgh and Cincinnati for the final playoff spot in the AFC with three games remaining.

What was hinted at a few weeks ago has been all but confirmed: Tim Tebow is largely unhappy with the Jets.
Following a Week 14 contest in which Tebow received zero snaps, head coach Rex Ryan admitted that the backup quarterback likely is disappointed he came to New York this offseason.

Per multiple sources including Jason LaCanfora on twitter Tim Tebow is active today for the Jets. Tebow has been the second man on the Jets depth chart all year; so, maybe it was a ‘can’t lose your spot due to injury’ piece; maybe Rex Ryan thinks he’s their best backup quarterback; or maybe it was a marketing ploy by Woody Johnson and/or NFL higherups; either way, McElroy...
New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow has been limited

The New York Jets have found themselves in a rather familiar situation throughout the 2012 season. They are making headlines. The Rex Ryan era has been full of promises, successes, disappointments, and turmoil. The last three plus years in New York have been nothing short of a media frenzy, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. Last Sunday, Rex Ryan chose to...
Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell ran for short touchdowns and the New York Jets kept their postseason hopes alive with a 17-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
The Jets (6-7) were shut out at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they didn't need to change quarterbacks to spark the offense this time around.

The Jets have claimed veteran receiver Braylon Edwards off waivers from Seattle.Fantasy Spin:The Jets are dealing with multiple injuries at the wide receiver spot and Edwards will add depth and a goal line target.

Wow, when I saw this poster of NY Jets linebacker Mark Gastineau from the 1980′s, I did TWO THINGS:
Laughed my ASS off
THREW UP in my mouth
There is NO disputing that Gastineau was a great pass rusher, but he was the GEICO caveman before the GEICO caveman.
Patriots quarterbacks of the era, Steve Grogan and Tony Eason may have feared Gastineau on the gridiron...
In the midst of an easy final stretch of the schedule, the New York Jets are facing their usual late-season do-or-die situation. A win improves them to 6-7 and maintains their minuscule hope in attaining a Wildcard beth for at least one more week. A loss could mean a plethora of depth chart adjustments next week.The good thing is, the Jets are in Jacksonville to face an absolutely...
