Taking Bad Schotz:
New York Jets
Despite all the huffing and puffing from their loud-mouthed head coach, the foundation of this Jets team was built on straw and stick instead of brick. This team was never built to win. They were built to be entertaining, sell tickets, and sweep headlines, but not contend for championships. Awful decision making, no relevant draft picks since the Mangini era, bad personnel moves and poor judges of talent and character have created a media circus and a culture of losing in New York. You can already see the vultures circling above MetLife Stadium, licking their chops, waiting for the impending doom. A once promising organization on the rise and destined for greatness (in their own delusional minds at least) is now reeling and imploding right before our eyes. And it all starts at the top with Woody Johnson, Mike Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan. Photo Credit: William Perlman/Star Ledger Two years ago, I was their biggest fan. I was convinced if the Jets kept the combination of Tanny and Rex t...

The legal system hasn't been kind to the currently out-of-work wideout, but now a legal loophole helped him avoid punishment for allegedly driving 125 MPH in a 70 MPH zone.
The Jets reportedly are reluctant to bench the struggling Mark Sanchez because the team wants to get its money's worth after signing him to a three-year extension last offseason.
Since the Jets last left us with an abysmal showing against the Fish, Hurricane Sandy ripped through the region. By the time of Sunday’s kickoff we may even have a new Commander in Chief. So much can change in a few week’s time. In the NFL, fourteen days is an eternity. Given the opportunity to reflect during the bye week, here is where we stand on the state of the Jets.
Rex Ryan and the New York Jets did not play this past weekend. That has not kept him or his team out of the news, however, as Ryan rarely remains silent for more than a day or so at a time. he just can’t help himself. But after another disappointing start to the 2012 NFL season that has resulted in a 3-5 start, Ryan admits that his Jets are not really in playoff contention in what...
Have you seen the standings in the AFC at the halfway point of the season? Even the most pessimistic New York Jets fan can’t proclaim their season over yet, particularly when taking the team’s schedule into consideration.
There is no question the next three games are going to be difficult. The Jets are rightfully 6.5 point underdogs this week and will be underdogs the following...
Tim Tebow is openly a "big fan" of many things -- and that may be an understatement.
Tebow's love for Jesus Christ isn't exactly a secret, and the Jets QB recently made news for being a fan of Camilla Belle -- fandom that just about everybody can understand.
However, Tebow's latest announcement of one of his new favorite football teams has...
Rex Ryan’s ‘all in’ speech came the day after the New York Jets suffered an embarrassing 30-9 loss to their divisional rivals at home. The loss dropped the Jets to 3-5 and sidelined their playoffs hopes.
“We have to be all in,” Ryan said. “The only chance we have is we are 100% all in and let’s put it out there. If we don’t play better you can forget about anything...
Florham Park, N.J. - Before we delve into the Jets and their bye week along let me say on behalf of everyone here at Jetsinsider.com we'd like to offer our sincere condolences to everyone who was affected by Hurricane Sandy. I myself just got my power back last night, I live in north Jersey 15 minutes from the Jets facilities and we were fortunate enough to only get hit by wind...
Jets coach Rex Ryan hoped his team would get healthy during the bye week. It has, but it's still not 100 percent.
LB Bart Scott (toe), RB Joe McKnight (ankle) and NT Kenrick Ellis (toe) will not practice Monday. The Jets do have some players practicing on a limited basis who have been out: S Eric Smith (knee), TE Jeff Cumberland (wrist) and RB Bilal Powell (shoulder).
The Jets are returning to work after their bye week and Rex Ryan admitted that he opened up the suggestion box to try to fix some of the issues that have plagued his team throughout the first half of the season, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. Although the Jets are tied for last place in the AFC East at 3-5 at the midway point of the season, Ryan remained optimistic...
Once you go black, you never go back T
Rumor has it that Tim Tebow is voting for Barack Obama for a second term. Our source out of Jacksonville where Tebow has been spending his bye week says ” Tim has been going back and fourth with his own team trying to figure out wether to go public with this announcement. Personally I don’t care who Tebow votes for, but would def like to...
The New York Jets have been a Jekyll and Hyde team so far in 2012. While the Green and White sit at a dismal record of 3-5, they've shown flashes of brilliance and promise despite a disappointing campaign.
Reads like Bart Scott wrote that one.
That adorably blunt detail and many others pertaining to how the Senators scout are contained in this two-part series Garrioch had over the weekend, embedding on the road with Pierre Dorion. The highlight for my money is the inclusion of Dorion's scouting report on Karlsson from the '08 U-18's in Kazan, Russia (a portion...
