We could've sworn this already happened. It was such a no-brainer that Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano would be fired, that we thought it had already happened along with GM Mike Tannenbaum getting the ax. But it actually happened this morning, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported. Eight days into 2013. So head coach Rex Ryan conveniently goes on vacation while the man he chose to run his offensive gets whacked.

Rex Ryan Finally Explains His Mark Sanchez Tattoo

After being photographed shirtless on a beach resort last week, Rex Ryan finally addressed the New York media and answered questions about a peculiar tattoo spotted on his right arm, one that depicts his wife wearing nothing but a Mark Sanchez jersey in a pose that looks strangely similar to “Tebowing.” What Rex said, according to Business Insider: It’s real.

Report: Jets planned on using Tim Tebow as a running back

According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, the New York Jets planned on lining quarterback Tim Tebow up as a running back, but never got around to it. The team had visions of lining up Tebow at running back in traditional sets when they acquired him via trade from the Denver Broncos last March, according to a person with knowledge of the team’s plans at the time of the trade...

Rex covers up sexy tattoo with 'I heart me' T-shirt

Rex Ryan covered up his tacky tattoo of his wife clad only in a Mark Sanchez jersey with an even less subtle "I heart me" T-shirt.

Jets' Ryan addresses tattoo rumors

Jets reportedly planned to make Tim Tebow a running back

Tim Tebow and the New York Jets are parting ways after what developed into a disappointing season for both parties.

Though Mark Sanchez’s poor play certainly merited a quarterback switch, Tebow...

New York Jets clean house, fire Sparano

The New York Jets are continuing to clean house. Today, the rebuilding management fired their offensive coordinator, Tony Sparano. The move was not surprising considering the Jets terrible season.  Since Sparano  was hired, many wondered if he was right for the job. With a background as an offensive line coach and no experience with quarterbacks, this was yet another move by the...

Rob Ryan And His Econoline Van Are Out Of Dallas

It’s not every coordinator firing that KSK bothers to cover, but not every coordinator is Rob Ryan, a man who never stopped rocking, being real or doing eightballs in the first seat of his 1999 Ford Econoline conversion van. This off-season, both Ryan brothers were almost out of jobs, which would have left this a much poorer league for the sake of depravity. That might sit well...
