Jets 0-2 vs bills this year. Does Rex Ryan survive the year?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 10:52 AM) Mehta interprets the muzzling of Rex Ryan as proof positive that, once the season ends, Ryan will no longer be the team’s head coach. Apparently, the team fears that Rex would become more sympathetic in the eyes of the fan base if he’s dumped by the team at a time when his father is fighting a serious illness.

santana Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:25 AM) If colt McCoy lights it up do the jets make a move?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:27 AM) I don't even care what they do for a while
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:28 AM) The team is a catastrophe
santana Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:29 AM) I didn't see the game
santana Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:29 AM) I remember the first bills game though I'm guessing it was like that with more sleeping in the end zone
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:32 AM) I'm with 0099...I hope they keep getting destroyed
Chaos Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:33 AM) it's a very Jets-esque move to sign McCoy if he does well
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:53 AM) I think they sign RGIII, Cutler, or Bradford
santana Icon : (26 November 2014 - 12:10 PM) why not all three
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 12:11 PM) Knowing this team, I wouldn't put that past them
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 02:07 PM) RAUL FOR QB

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:00 PM) Look at what a great system can do for a QB, Sanchez looks like a different QB with the Eagles.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:00 PM) Scanning the field and making quick decisions, I like how Chip has Sanchez throwing on the run which he was always great at.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:01 PM) I really hope we finally bring in a good offensive minded coach.

Free agent safety Kerry Rhodes has generated no interest from NFL teams since being released by the Arizona Cardinals in March. A source told Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com that there is "no buzz" surrounding Rhodes and that, while four teams worked out defensive backs last week, none of these teams worked out Rhodes.

So what gives? Rhodes is only 31 and had a terrific year in Arizona last season, starting 15 games and racking up 67 tackles, 11 pass breakups, and four interceptions while grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 safety. Rhodes would seem to be a valuable asset to any team's roster and it seems criminal that he is no longer in the NFL.

Florio and Drew Magary of Deadspin suggest that rumors about Rhodes' sexual orientation could be behind the lack of interest. Rhodes has denied the rumors but there has to be some reason why a healthy, Pro Bowl-caliber safety remains unemployed.

That's really fucked up.

"It's like going from Alcatraz to Dorney Park."

It is better to destroy than create what is meaningless, so the picture will not be finished.

This is why people are afraid to come out of the closet.

That shouldn't matter. Huge shame if that is the reason teams have not looked to sign him.

This is right on topic... listen to the interview. A grown man is crying on air saying he's sorry... he's sorry... like he did someone wrong. Being gay or whatever he is isn't a crime...terrible that he's gotta feel like if he lives as who he is that he's letting people down. Shit is crazy.

Yeah I feel sorry for someone who passed up a $3m deal and now is unemployed because of it.

Can't imagine it's because he's got rumors about his sexual orientation.

I know Rex and Kerry had their issues but with our issues in the backfield you would think we would take a look. Maybe we have tried but he was unwilling to come back, who knows.
