Now Our Season Is Likely Over Rex, "We're not sniffing the playoffs."

Coach Rex Ryan admits his 3-5 Jets don't belong in that conversation.The already super-hushed Tebow Zone came to a grinding halt; the weekly picking apart of quarterbackMark Sanchez was set aside for more productive pursuits; and we also focused on legitimate playoff contenders.
"I can't tell you how excited I am," Ryan told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News on Monday. "I know we're not where we want to be. We're not even close. We're not sniffing the playoffs. We're not sniffing anything right now. But I want to get there. I'm excited about the prospects in front of us."
"We will be doing some different things," Ryan said. "I don't want to get into the specifics of it ... If there's an advantage to be gained, then I want to gain that advantage without letting our opponent know. I'm excited about trying to implement some of these things."Ryan told Mehta he isn't switching quarterbacks, but used the bye to patch up areas of concern. Ryan borrowed from Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's suggestion box and allowed his assistants to offer tweaks of every flavor and variety.
Added Ryan: "I'm not going to say that they're radical."
Maybe not this week, but radical changes -- not tweaks -- can't be far away if the Jets continue their underwhelming path through what's rapidly becoming a lost campaign.

If they are trying to keep quiet about the changes they are making to use as an advantage
Why bother saying anything!?!?
I agree why say anything just to say you are trying to keep things quiet?
Do you think the fans or other teams are morons???
If there isn't going to be a qb change it absolutely means one thing..... more Tebow gimmick plays.Everyone knows this. Yay.
If you are going to put Tebow in leave him in or leave him out and stick with Sanchez. This switching qb`s hasn't worked so far and it still wont work.
Personally Id be happy if they both left town and Mcelroy was given the job for the remainder of the year. If he sucks we draft a qb if he is good then even better. Either way this team isnt going anywhere long term with Sanchez or Tebow.

They haven't changed anything but want everyone to believe they have
instead they are just refining things.

If we do improve the basics I don't think we'll be good enough to make the playoffs. But we'll certainly have far less to moan about and fewer losses as ugly as those to San Francisco and Miami.
