The Jets are hiring Bears nat'l scout Rex Hogan as their director of college scouting. Chicago has released him from his contract

The Jets are also hiring Rams scout Brian Heimerdinger to a prominent front-office role. St. Louis let him out of his deal.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:48 PM) Heimerdinger is our director of player personnel now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) That is Mike Heimerdinger's son who used to be our OC in 05
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) hopefully his son isn't as horrible as his pop was at play calling
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 PM) Everyone looks like a bad playcaller when you have no QB and have no talent
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:18 PM) When Heimerdinger was our OC it was when we had a ton of injuries on offense, were down to our 4th or 5th string QB

Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:47 PM) Thanks Obama.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:49 PM) But really for all of you complaining about the site. What is there to talk about? We have a new GM and HC that we don't know how good or bad they'll be yet. So there really isn't much to talk about with the draft still months away.
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 09:59 PM) Even I can't blame Obama :drinks:
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) It could be worse

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 09:43 AM) HIRE MR JET
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:17 AM) There are some good OGs available in FA, we have to sign one
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Willie Colon was rated as one of the worst in football last season. So was Winters. Oday shows promise
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:47 PM) we got slammed with snow but the wind didn't knock out our power so I made out pretty unscathed here in RI
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 January 2015 - 01:14 PM) What sucks is that the NFL isn't going to throw the book at those CHEATS even though they may be found GUILTY
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 January 2015 - 08:54 PM) This place is a GHOST TOWN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:24 AM) Nothing really to talk about in the offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:20 PM) Rex bashed Idzik in a interview today lol
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:21 PM) Says Woody didn't want to fire him but had to because of 4 wins. That Idzik had hidden agendas and a plan that never worked.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:26 PM) I expect FA is going to be busy for us, I think public pressure forces them to make a splash because Maccagnan has to prove hes no Idzik and lose out on most FAs. We also have a lot of holes and could fix some with signings

Rex Ryan may be staging his exit after a second consecutive forgettable season if Jets owner Woody Johnson isn’t willing to invest more money into revamping the team’s struggling offense.

The Daily News has learned that Ryan, the swashbuckling point man who dominated the headlines for the past four seasons, has intimated to “anyone who will listen” that he would be better off getting fired if Johnson isn’t willing to rectify player personnel and coaching issues on offense, according to sources.

It’s unlikely that Johnson would fire Ryan, who has two years and more than $6 million remaining on his contract. However, sources told The News that Ryan has not been given assurances about his job security three days before the season finale against the Bills on Sunday.

Ryan declined comment about his future when reached by The News. “If Woody’s not willing to do what it takes to fix the team, then (Ryan) knows he’s better off being fired,” a team source said. “If Woody is willing to eat some money and spend to get us out of this mess, then it’s worth staying.”

Ryan’s recommendations to Johnson would almost certainly include replacing first-year offensive coordinator Tony Sparano with a new play-caller. However, it’s unclear whether Johnson is willing to pay off the remaining portion of Sparano’s deal.
PHOTOS: ARE BUTT-FUMBLING JETS AMONG SPORTS' WORST ALL-TIME TEAMS?

“The million-dollar question is how much dead money is Woody willing to absorb for 2013 with front office, coaches and players?” a league source familiar with the situation said. “If Woody’s not willing to spend, then (Ryan) would want out. He’d be a lame duck. Anybody would want out.”

Sources confirm that Ryan prefers to stay with the Jets if his owner is willing to pour in all the necessary resources to breathe life into one of the most anemic passing offenses in the league. Although Johnson’s bottom-line budget is unknown, sources said that Ryan won’t simply resign if the owner isn’t willing to make sufficient changes.

“He won’t quit,” a team official said.


At that point, one plausible scenario beneficial to Johnson would be to buy Ryan out of his contract with an agreed-upon financial settlement.

Otherwise, Ryan would essentially be coaching for his job next season. Without a significant upgrade in offensive talent, the Jets would be a borderline playoff team at best.

If Ryan were to part ways with the Jets, he would be an attractive candidate for several head coaching jobs expected to be available as early as Monday. He would also be amenable to taking a one-year hiatus and working in television, according to sources.

It would be a stunning end to an entertaining and mildly successful four-year run with the Jets.

With his penchant for brash and daring statements, Ryan quickly transformed the Jets into the most polarizing team in the league. He wasted little time placing a bull’s-eye on the franchise by claiming at his introductory press conference in 2009 that the Jets would be paying a post Super Bowl-victory visit to the White House to meet the President “in the next couple years.”

The Jets dominated the headlines in 2009 and 2010 with their style and substance. Gang Green’s back-to-back AFC Championship Game appearances coupled with Ryan’s supreme confidence made the Jets the toast of the town.

But the Jets, who are 14-17 over the past two years, went into a tailspin after their early success.

“I’m always going to keep searching because I’m trying to win,” Ryan said after a 27-17 loss to the Chargers on Sunday ensured his first losing season as a head coach. “Whatever it takes, that’s what I’m here to do. Obviously, it’s been a bad season. There’s no question about that, but I’m going to keep competing. I want to win. I came here to win a championship.”

It may make perfect sense for Ryan to leave if Johnson isn’t willing to take the necessary steps to revamp the offense. The dearth of offensive talent on the roster would likely be too much to overcome next season. Ryan could realistically be fired if the Jets miss the playoffs for a third consecutive year. Moreover, Ryan’s market value could dip. It may behoove him to make a move to greener pastures now. Potential openings include the Eagles, Chargers, Chiefs, Browns and Cardinals.

Ryan has deflected questions about his future in the past couple of weeks, but acknowledged on several occasions that this season has been a disappointment.

“Obviously, if you don’t make the playoffs, you’re not going to win a championship this year, but we’ll see what happens,” Ryan said after losing to the Chargers. “I know one thing: I’m always going to keep believing, I’m going to keep working and I’m going to keep trying to search for answers.”

I would welcome Ryan's firing if Johnson was willing to put out the money to do it.

What is with the idea this team is cheap? It uses it's payroll every year. This isn't MLB.

This guy Spano that I follow on twitter, hes been saying since the summer or before that that he has been told that Tannenbaum and Rex don't see eye to eye and they have a feud going. Here are some tweets he made today.

Quote

@NickSpano
Was told in secrecy earlier in the year that the disconnect between Rex and Tanny is not fixable. It's going to be one or the other.
@NickSpano
This same person, who told me about the Tanny/Rex feud, told me it was on Tanny. He got too big for his britches & burnt a TON of bridges
‏@NickSpano
Pretty much, there are a handful of teams and agents/players, that won't even speak to the Jets, because of Tannenbaum.
@NickSpano
So think about the polar opposites. EVERYONE loves Rex (players, etc) and they don't work w/ Mr T. Tell me who should go?




Here are some tweets from Leon Washington's wife today.

@CharityLuvs
If reports are true 3 years ago I called that TanneBUM would be out.. Can't pay undeserving players & trade your leaders.. Bye Bye Tanny LOL

@CharityLuvs
I've always said its not the PLAYERS.. It's the FRONT OFFICE

Since we traded him Washington has under six hundred yards combined rushing and receiving and four kickoff TDs. McKnight has over seven hundred yards combined and two kickoff TDs. Washington was a f***ing overrated player who hasn't done shit since he left and needs to tell his wife to stay off twitter because all she does is remind everyone that they tried to talk all sorts of shit and look stupid for it.

I don't even like Mcknight but I thought it was a good move at the time and I still think it was. You get rid of overhyped players when you have the chance, the Jets' problem is bringing in overhyped players, not getting rid of them-they do that fine.

I brought this up last season in a topic about Schotty. I assumed that Rex always wanted to get rid of Schotty (he came here with his own OC who he had to make a QB coach) and that internal politics were the biggest factor. I totally see what Rex is doing. He knows that even if he keeps his job, he'll be looking over his shoulder in 2013 and will be on the hot seat. Why not force Woody's hand now? If it works, you not only have one year of free reign as the GM/HC but you can also make some moves that will bide you more time. If you end up having a playoff season in 2013, you'll have a job for the next half decade. If Woody plays hardball, you have a severance package and you're free to explore whatever HC gig you want (especially college where I think he'll end up eventually anyway). This is the boldest move he could've made and frankly, I didn't think he was smart enough to turn the tables on Woody. I'm impressed and kinda want to see him as GM now.

I would not be convinced about Rex being in charge of personnel for a year, especially when it comes to the offense. John Conner - a fullback who did next to nothing on the team except generate some headlines while we were on Hard Knocks - was one of Rex's picks, so I wouldn't want to see what a complete draft class he has final say in looks like.
Ryan's supposed wish to see Sparano chopped is interesting too, considering he's the man who helped hire him to run the offense.

Doesn't surprise me that Tannenbaum burns a lot of bridges. Didn't he lie to Pete Kendall's face when asking him to take a goodwill pay cut in return for a future reimbursment? Tannenbaum would be awesome at balancing the books at some major business. But keep that weasel away from my football team from now on.
