While speculation has led us to believe his job is on thin ice, Rex Ryan has a different design regarding his future.
During an interview with WLNY-TV Friday, Ryan said he hopes to remain the Jets coach for “about another 20 years." In order to achieve that arguably unattainable goal, the team has to perform better than in recent years.
And he knows it.
“Obviously the results weren’t what we wanted last year, there’s no question about that,” Ryan said. “But I’m excited about this team going forward. One things for certain: whoever is on the field is going to have to earn their way on their through competition and I think that’s gonna ultimately really help out team. I believe when we take the field opening day, our guys will be popping out of their skin ready to play.”
Ryan is entering his fifth year in New York, and make no mistake -- the honeymoon is over. No one remembers the 2009 and 2010 runs to the AFC Championship games. What now comes to mind is embarrass...

NOT GOOD ENOUGH, EH?
Warren Moon, who spent six seasons in the Canadian Football League, believes that Tim Tebow has no greater chance of success in that league than he does in the NFL.
Even though free agent quarterback Tim Tebow may not play in the NFL this season, he could still make history. According to the Elias Sports Bureau via USA Today Sports, Tebow would become the second quarterback ever to never start another NFL game right after winning in the playoffs. According to the Elias Sports Bureau (via Mike Klis), Tebow would join Bob Lee, a 32-year-old quarterback...
Quinton Coples is moving to outside linebacker for the New York Jets after a solid rookie season at defensive end.
The team's first-round draft pick last year out of North Carolina confirmed the position switch Thursday during the Jets' first open locker room media session since last season. Coples led New York with 5 1/2 sacks while playing defensive end and defensive tackle...
Top 5 Reasons to sign Tim Tebow to your NFL Team: 5. The running quarterback just became a whole lot more popular with RG3 and Cam Newton. The Redskins led the NFL in rushing last year with their pistol offense.It was so impressive that the 49ers adopted it midway through the season with Colin Kaepernick.So if this is the hot new trend in the NFL, why not pick up a cheap, durable...
Mark Sanchez spoke for more than 20 minutes about the New York Jets' crowded quarterback situation, saying all the right things throughout.
Yes, he believes he'll be the starter, and, yes, he looks forward to the competition.
Then came the question everyone really wanted to know: Hey, Mark, what's up with that headband?
''It's my inner-soccer player,'...
If Tim Tebow can’t get a job in the NFL as a quarterback, a TV career may be on the horizon.
ESPN believes the former Jet will be playing football in 2013, but if not, he’s on the network’s radar as a college football analyst, according to the New York Daily News. There will be competition for Tebow’s services, though — unlike in the NFL, where there is none.

Geno Smith hasn’t had the best time in New York going back to last Thursday. After falling out of the first round, Smith considered not returning to Radio City Music Hall to go on stage when he would inevitably be drafted. Following the draft, Smith fired his agents this...
Freshly liberated from the soul-crushing environment that was the three-ring circus sideshow that the Tim Tebow Experiment became for the New York Jets last season, quarterback Mark Sanchez finally can relax, but apparently not to the extent where he feels able to let his hair down entirely.
Which might explain why Sanchez rocked a nifty little green headband during his interaction...
With the additions of David Garrard and Geno Smith this offseason, Mark Sanchez no longer has a stronghold on the Jets’ starting quarterback job.
But that isn’t deterring the confidence of the man behind the Butt-Fumble.
Per the New York Daily News, Sanchez said Thursday that he expects to top the depth chart and enter Week 1 under center for Gang Green.
“No doubt,” Sanchez...
Already piling on
Emotional posting. No rational writing here. My feeling. Cut the crap on Geno Smith, media. Kill it, fans. Enough already.
Like other Jets fans, I’ve been reading the bad ink on Geno Smith. It’s unavoidable. And it’s getting ridiculous. While I’m not like many other members of Gang Green Nation, passionately obstinate in their disdain of one Rich Cimini...
This week, I thought I would move away from the past and look towards the future of our New York Jets. Last week's NFL Draft was full of surprises and always seems to leave us with more questions than answers.
The Jets drafted two defensive players in the first round, but all anyone wants to talk about is their second round pick of quarterback, Geno Smith. Let me first say...
