The state of the Jets

Are Jets coach Rex Ryan and G.M. Mike Tannenbaum already facing a make-or-break season in New York? That’s the question Florio posed to New York Daily News reporter Manish Mehta Tuesday on PFT Live.

Ryan and Tannenbaum’s success together would seem to give the duo plenty of breathing room, but sentiment can change quickly in New York. Especially now that Ryan has successfully raised expectations for the franchise.

Florio and Mehta also discuss the possibility of Peyton Manning coming to the Jets and the future of Bart Scott.

  1. I’d be suprised if Manning even remotely considers being a Jet…and not because of the Eli thing. I don’t think he’d be down with the posionous lockerroom.

  2. I despise Ryan with every fiber of my being, but it is hard to ignore that under him, the Jets made it to the AFC championship game twice and narrowly missed the playoffs twice in what is probably the most competitive division in the NFL. If next season is anything better than being bad enough to “earn” a top-five pick in the 2013 draft and he is let go, it is another compelling reason for why the Jets will never return (?) to greatness.

  3. In Rex Ryan’s 2011 book, Ryan writes “When people ask me what it’s like to share New York with the Giants, my response is always I am not sharing it with them – they are sharing it with me. … It seems clear that right now we are the better team and we are going to remain the better team for the next 10 years. Whether you like it or not, those are the facts and that’s what is going to happen.”

    The Giants beat the Jets in Week 16 the 2011 season and went on to win Super Bowl XLVI less than two months later.

  4. The coaching style employed by Rex typically has a short shelf life, particularly when you don’t win a title. I’m sure that he’s okay this year, but if the Jets miss the playoffs again in 2012, he will be firmly in the hot seat. And given the talent on this team, the over/under for Jets wins in 2012 will be around 8, not enough to make the playoffs in the AFC East.

  5. the state of the jets is new york and right now the giants are runnin NYC. giants beat my team twice in superbowls

  6. Any of you Yets fans who think Peyton will move to NY and compete with his brother have been smoking whatever Rex digs out from underneath his toenails!

    “. . . in what is probably the most competitive division in the NFL . . . ”

    That’s a bit of hyperbole, especially given the fact that the Patriots have won the AFC East eight out of the last nine years, coming in 2nd in 2008 on a tiebreaker when Brady was out for the season.

    Rex has only been there 3 years… Mangini missed the playoffs in 2008 and was dismissed for it.

    ==================================
    Rex shares his wife with other men so I think he would have no problem sharing a stadium with the Giants.

  10. The Jets aren’t a football team they’re more like a good reality show. You never tune in to actually watch the show. Just to see if a fight breaks out or a heated arguement occurs. Other than that don’t care to much for the organization. Too much ego in one locker room. Most of it coming from the Head Coach. Go figure.

  11. I think the Jet fans are drinking kool-aid to think they are the second best team in the east, they are not, Miami will be the favorite for the second spot as long as Brady is playing. Bill
