Rex Ryan says it feels as though the New York Jets haven't won in ''forever'' and acknowledges that his struggling team is ''desperate'' for a victory Sunday at St. Louis. The Jets (3-6) have lost three straight, with their last win coming against Indianapolis on Oct. 14 - more than a month ago. New York is in last place in the AFC East and could see its fading playoff hopes take a serious hit if the Jets lose to the Rams (3-5-1), who haven't won since beating Arizona on Oct. 4. After facing the Rams, the Jets play the division-leading Patriots on Thanksgiving night. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie echoes Ryan's assessment of the game at St. Louis, saying: ''For us, we have to win.'' --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

  • What he really means is HE is desperate for a win, cause he is gone if they don't make the playoffs...and their not!! But helll, he can always GUARANTEE a loss, THEN HE WOULD BE RIGHT FOR A CHANGE.
  • Damn these jets, they decide to play well enough to win a game this weekend and they were the only game I picked wrong in the pool so far. Need the 49ers to win tonight and I'll be 13 of 14 for the week. I HATE THE JETS!!!!

Debate: Rex Ryan as Patriots Defensive Coordinator in 2013?

It seems impossible, but for the sake of fun, let's not rule it out. Would you want Rex Ryan to come to New England to coach the much maligned Patriots defense? Would Rex want to do that? Would Belichick?  These are the questions we at PatriotsLife had some varying opinions on. Here's a recap of our e-mail debate. Be sure to chime in with your thoughts in the comments section...

Time for Rex to admit Sanchez is not his ‘guy’

I am pretty sure I lost a bet earlier this season when I predicted Mark Sanchez would be benched by Week 10. At the start of the 2012 season, things were looking okay for the Jets. All they really needed to focus on is getting through a tough first half, fix mistakes during the bye, and storm through a much easier second-half schedule. But, the Jets did not do what they needed to...

New York Jets: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#27)

Last week: 27 (-2) Record: 3-6 I’ve been wondering for a few weeks, at least, why Rex Ryan hadn’t benched Mark Sanchez for Tim Tebow. It didn’t make any sense to me why (assuming he had brought Tebow in to be an alternative to Mark Sanchez) he hadn’t swapped out Sanchez, who is completing 52% of his passes for a 3-6 team, for his alternative. Well, he answered that question...

Turn On The Jets Week 11 Roundtable – Jets vs. Rams Match-Ups

Joe Caporoso - I hate to reiterate what most of our writers are saying but how could you not look forward to Rex Ryan’s defense versus Brian Schottenheimer’s offense? Without question a low point in a year full of them would be to watch Schottenheimer hang a 35 spot on Ryan. Considering how much crap Schotty took while he was here and how much pride Rex takes in his defense...

Cowboys' Rob Ryan ready for Cleveland reunion

Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan doesn't pretend to ignore that the Cowboys are playing Cleveland for the first since the Browns dumped him when they fired Eric Mangini two years ago. Even when he's pretending. ''Honestly, I'm going to say no,'' Ryan said when asked if he had discussed this week's personal motivation with his players. '...

Rob Ryan ready for Cleveland reunion

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan doesn't pretend to ignore that the Cowboys are playing Cleveland for the first since the Browns dumped him when they fired Eric Mangini two years ago. Even when he's pretending. "Honestly, I'm going to say no," Ryan said when asked if he had discussed this week's personal motivation with his players...

Lawrence Vickers and Rob Ryan: “It’s personal”

Lots of quotes came out of Dallas Cowboys practice in the last 24 hours, including two notable former Browns. Let’s start with the fullback. Lawrence Vickers, a 2006 6th-round pick by the Browns, left as a free agent following the 2010 season. Here were his comments on facing his former team, as reported by ESPNDallas.com: “It’s personal, why wouldn’t it be? It anybody tells...

Turn On The Jets Week 11 Roundtable – Jets vs. Rams Predictions

Joe Caporoso - 12 Pack  Chris Gross -  Jets 23-Rams 17: Can New York turn a week of internal turmoil into enough motivation to grab a road victory in a must win situation? At what point does this team develop a chip on their shoulders for all the doubters and perceived negativity they are subject to, week in and week out? If I am Rex Ryan, my pregame speech is similar to Lou...

The circus arrives when the Rams face the Jets

ST. LOUIS - Cue the calliope. You thought last weeks tie was a circus? Well, the show must roll on, because the New York Jets land in our fair city with the largest red noses in the NFL. Where to start with the gang thats always green with envy? Theres the 3-6 record, good for last place in the AFC East. There are the three consecutive losses, including a combined 58-16 spanking...

Week 11 AFC East game picks: Jets at Rams

Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' inter-conference contest with the St. Louis Rams. Nick's take: When Jets coach Rex Ryan and Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer shared the field during Schotty's time with the Jets, Rex's defense ran the show. I think that holds true when the...
