Rex Ryan feels that if owner Woody Johnson isn't willing to spend the neccessary money to address player personnel and the offensive coaching staff, they he'd be better off fired. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported that "If Woody's not willing to do what it takes to fix the team, then (Ryan) knows he's better off being fired," a team source said. "If Woody is willing to eat some money and spend to get us out of this mess, then it's worth staying." Citing unnamed sources, Mehta says Ryan has been telling this to "anyone who would listen." With 'Black Monday' approaching, it sure sounds like Rex is expecting to be fired, and this is his coping strategy. But Ryan does have a point. The Tony Sparano experiment failed miserably, and the offensive problems are well documented, and even though the organization said bringing in Tim Tebow wouldn't be a distraction, look what happened? The Jets offense, the entire team for that matter, needs retooling, but it probably won't be under Rex Ryan's watch. As a consolation prize, Ryan would likely become the most sought after DC in the off-season (where he belongs).

  • I'm not an expert but my analysis of the Jets' debacle is this: The ownership and management has to fire Rex Ryan! The way I see it, Ryan has been trying to embarrass the management and the owner for bringing Tim Tebow to the team against his wishes, hence he has not played Tebow! He should be fired today, not tomorrow, not Monday! Now he is already cushioning his exit by saying that he wants to be dismissed if management does not spend money to improve the team! Ryan will never play Tebow not only because he does not like Tebow; he hates him! If management does not fire Rex Ryan, then they are just as responsible for the Jets team being doomed! Romeo T.
  • I've said all along, even when the jets played for the AFC Title under this fat lying tub of goo that, he is a phony. The jerk has made the jets the 3 ring circus that they are, and if they bring him back then they're gluttons for punishment. As a Giants fan I love seeing the jets fail, but I also respect the integrity of the game and this guy is a joke, guess the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. His father was full of shiit and so is rex.
