Oh Rex. You should have been fired last season, but for some odd reason you were brought back. It has been clear that you don't have the same power as seasons past and that's good. Maybe if you just concentrate on the X's and O's involved in playing the game the team will do better.
Or you can figure out new and inventive ways to screw up like you did Saturday night against the New York Jets.
Starting Geno Smith was smart; you needed to see what he can do with the first team. It sort of helped that Mark Sanchez had an infected toe and needed to sit anyway. But then you put Sanchez in during the fourth quarter because you wanted to win? Really? In the preseason?
I get it--winning is important no matter if it is preseason, regular season, or post season--but a healthy quarterback even if it is Mark Sanchez is even more important! Especially when your other option--Geno Smith--is making plays like this:
Yeah, Geno is a long way away from being a starting quarterback in the NFL. He was 16-30 for 199 yards and one touchdown--not bad has he not thrown three interceptions and run out the back of the end zone.
So with the comedy of errors that we have come to love as the norm for the Jets we knew it was going to be a great press conference after the game-- which the Jets did happen to win in overtime (because it was real important to do so).
Rex certainly did not disappoint with this press conference. This clip will end up joining the collection of epic coach rants that gets replayed every season. It was truly a classic meltdown.
At least Matt Simms didn't suck. The rookie out of Tennessee was 6-10 for 120 yards and one touchdown.

Rex Ryan gave an entertaining answer in response to being asked about his quarterback situation at a postgame press conference.
It was just a matter of time that Rex Ryan was going to explode, but did we really expect it to happen this quickly?
The New York Jets head coach had his first of what could be multiple mini-meltdowns this season after the Jets’ preseason game against the Giants on Saturday night. Left to answer questions about why Mark Sanchez was playing in fourth quarter, Ryan was eventually...
Rex Ryan faced questions regarding Mark Sanchez's injury in the 4th quarter against the Giants. Ryan decided to go on a post-game press conference rant instead of answering those questions.
Florham Park, NJ "You never know.'A fitting way to describe Ryan Spadola's chances coming into training camp this year, and the words the undrafted rookie receiver out of Lehigh used to describe his thoughts coming into work today: the first cut day.But after a game in which Spadola pulled in three catches for 110 yards and a touchdown, it would've been a shock...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Even with the start of the NFL season nearly two weeks away, you don't need a Las Vegas bookmaker to pick a favorite for the first coach likely to be fired.
It's Rex Ryan.
At the rate he's burning through whatever goodwill is left on the Jets' side of town, he'll be lucky to still be working the sideline...
What a great weekend for Rex Ryan. He starts Geno Smith in Game 3 of the preseason and then throws Mark Sanchez into…
Rex Ryan can’t quit Mark Sanchez. Not matter if the ship is in flames and sinking like the Titanic, Sexy Rexy seems to have Dirty Sanchez’s back. Time to move on if you want any chance of keeping your job pal. See the video and the most awesomest GIF below:
and the Rex Dance is now the hottest thing on the street!

2 Girls, 1 Dirty Mark Sanchez
We knew Rex Ryan was on a hot seat heading into this season, but I don't think anyone predicted this mess.The battle between Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith was a rather dull one, but a starting quarterback battle nonetheless. Both QBs made mistake after mistake and it was clear a starter wouldn't be named until the team saw some preseason action. Well, we're in our final...
Rex Ryan’s plan to start Geno Smith at the quarterback position didn’t go exactly the way he thought it would. Smith still needs time in the NFL to figure out where not to put the football. Smith threw 3 interceptions and he could have done worse. Smith completed 16 of the 30 passes he threw and it shows that Ryan and his offensive coordinators over exposed the young quarterback...
N.Y. Jets coach Rex Ryan needs to be fired. No really, fired. This
is not reaction trolling. I'd actually really fire him before Week
1 if I were Jets general manager John Idzik.
Rarely does anything surprise me anymore, but I never quite thought I'd live long enough to see a state governor go on sports talk radio and call an NFL beat writer an idiot and a dope.
Alas, here we are.
And surprise, surprise, the New York Jets are to blame.

Trouble usually has a way of finding the Jets. On Saturday, Rex Ryan went out looking for it.
After a miserable debut performance from Saturday’s starter Geno Smith, Ryan turned to old reliable — excuse the sarcasm — Mark Sanchez to lead the Jets’ offense behind a second-string offensive line in the fourth quarter of a meaningless preseason game. The decision almost immediately...
New Jersey governor Chris Christie had some harsh words for New York Daily News reporter Manish Mehta today.
Christie clearly didn’t like that his buddy Rex Ryan was asked by Mehta if rookie Geno Smith will start week one now that Mark Sanchez is injured, per The Big Lead.

Besides the Patriots, the rest of the AFC East has essentially been a revolving door with the Jets, Dolphins, and Bills putting their best efforts to upset and occasionally steal a game or two from the Pats. The Jets hit their peak at the beginning of the Rex Ryan era, but since have become a circus. The Bills seemed to be ready to take the next step but quickly tripped and crashed...
