LaRon Landry colorfully objects to notion of Jets missing playoffs

Jets coach Rex Ryan is excited for the second half of the season even though his team is not currently “sniffing” the playoffs with a 3-5 record.

Ryan’s not the only member of the Jets with an optimistic spirit. Safety LaRon Landry isn’t ready to stop thinking about the playoffs, a point he made quite emphatically when asked about the possibility that the team won’t make it to the postseason.

“We still can be in the playoff run,” Landry said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “S—, if we don’t get into the playoffs, man, it’s a boring-ass season. F— that.”

Landry has some experience with boring-ass seasons. His Redskins teams failed to make the playoffs in four of his five seasons in Washington and this Jets team has plenty of work to do if Landry is going to avoid another year without postseason football. There’s work to be done on both sides, but Landry will be responsible for helping a defense that Ryan said had been “poor” so far this season.

“Anything is fixable,” Landry said. “It’s all about if we want to fix it. We just got to come together and do it.”

If they don’t, there are sure to be some more four-letter words thrown around and at the Jets this season.

    his seasons are always boring since he spends them sitting on the bench.

    What would he know about making the playoffs? He’s only played in one playoff game(2007) in his career and the Skins got Clownstomped by the Seahawks(35-14), who in turn got Clownstomped by the Packers(42-20) the following week.

    It makes sense based on Landry’s extensive resume of playoff experience during his pro career.

    I don’t think Mark Sanchez is fixable.

    LaRon Landry is such a punk! He and his team do nothing but talk…and can’t back it up!

    The real news here would have been if he hadn’t said anything! He can’t keep his mouth shut.

    Match him jump up from a tackle and flex his muscles after giving up a 20 yard reception

    Is there an easier job right now than Jets beat reporter?

    If Rex doesn’t have something incendiary to say, just pick a player at random and they’re bound to say something brilliant.

    It’s been a while since we saw one of those ‘who do you want to play for’ surveys of NFL players. Do you think NFL players still want to play for Rex?

    I hope LaRon keeps up the weekly idiocy: he is making me feel much better about the Skins personnel department at a time when things aren’t looking so good for my team.

    Now he fits the J.E.T.S mold.. Big mouth Ryan has outsourced his duties to Landry!!!

    Classy. Good representative of the Jets and Johnson & Johnson.
