With all the inner turmoil and media scrutiny the Jets have struggled through over the past few years, one may wonder how much longer Rex Ryan can handle it. But according to the coach, he’s got a solid few decades left in him. In an interview with CBS New York, Ryan expressed his excitement about this year’s Jets squad and said he wouldn’t mind coaching the team for “about another 20 years.” “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 also gave his take on the epic fail that was the Tim Tebow experiment, admitting that trading for the quarterback before last season may not have been the best idea. “With the benefit of hindsight, it’s probably a trade that didn’t benefit the Jets or Tim,” he said. “We made the efforts, we thought it would be a good move obviously, and it just didn’t work out. I certainly hope he has success at other places.” Tebow may be out of Ryan’s hair now, but the Jets’ quarterback situation is hardly more stable. The team has said that all five quarterbacks on the current roster, including second-round pick Geno Smith and incumbent Mark Sanchez, will be in open competition for the starting job.

This is a city where talk radio takes multiple calls every week from fans who complain about Tom Brady & want him gone.
