The long off season looms
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:18 AM) what up home dawgs?
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:22 AM) long time no chat, Ya boy has returned from the depths. Good to see everyone alive and well. Another season down the drain... what else is new? Fitz coming back next yr means we wont be going to the superbowl. We seriously need to land a QB. I hope Petty is the future and Im still quietly waiting for Geno to show up. IF they retain him it would speak volumes
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 January 2016 - 11:23 AM) I'm done with Geno. Never really expected much from him from the beginning. So I'm also looking for Petty to be the future.
vjdbbq Icon : (29 January 2016 - 04:33 PM) GENO SUCKS MONKEY DICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:16 PM) S-Dubb??.Who's that guy?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:17 PM) FIRE S-DUBB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Dubb and Amen? Did I take a wrong turn and land back in 2007?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Haha good to see both of you
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:28 PM) I don't care if Cro comes back, I think Marcus Williams can start opposite Revis. Hes a ball hawk and has performed well everytime hes called on.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) I want Fitz back as starter, he lacks arm talent but he is scrappy
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) The team loves him as a leader and he is a good bridge QB as we groom a QB of the future.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He also has top notch pocket awareness.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He allows our playmakers to make plays. After years of terrible QB play, I'll take 31 TD 15 INTs almost 4,000 yards
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 February 2016 - 12:41 AM) I can't stop thinking about the off season...... what the hell are we gonna do!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Maccagnan is going to have to show his worth
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) They can't have Wilkerson on that franchise tag, they have to sign him long term with a small cap hit or trade him. Otherwise we are in trouble with other FAs.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) We need Harrison back, you can't run a effective 3-4 without a stud NT.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:01 AM) I hope we get Harrison back on a 4 yr contract.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:55 PM) I really think we are going to have to tag and trade Wilkerson
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) If we keep wilk we lose Harrison or Fitzpatrick maybe both
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) And ivory
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:23 PM) We can't keep Wilkerson, Richardson, and Williams. A move has to be made
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) If the Jets want to go cheaper, they can try to trade Wilkerson and have Richardson/Williams for cheap
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Then they can re-sign Harrison, FItzpatrick, Ivory, and maybe Powell.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Kaepernick apparently wants out of SF and wants to join the Jets
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Guess he sees the Jets as a team with a great WR tandem and a quality OC who builds a offense around the players
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) No thanks
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) Unless he's dirt cheap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:30 AM) The jets would be fools to take on that contract
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 02:09 PM) keep powell, snakcs, wilkerson, and fitz. let ivory walk, trade richardson, cut cromartie, restructure brick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 04:18 PM) Marshall said no to Kaepnerick, he wants FItzpatrick as his QB
vjdbbq Icon : (04 February 2016 - 12:07 PM) Where's Rob ? I need some ass shots !!!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:16 PM) its crazy how dead this site is
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:16 PM) its super bowl Sunday!!
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:47 PM) Everybody is at Rob's house ; checking out the asses !!!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (07 February 2016 - 05:17 PM) Hope Cotchery gets a ring tonight
santana Icon : (07 February 2016 - 07:04 PM) Yeah I would rather see a panther win
santana Icon : (07 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Zzzz
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (07 February 2016 - 09:03 PM) I want to see Manning go out on top
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:03 PM) Jerricho got screwed on the call in the first quarter but he dropped a few later on .
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:04 PM) Screw Manning and his chicken parm .
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:29 PM) We need a pass rushing LB!! Look at Denver.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:30 PM) Nothing against manning but he wasn't good at all this year and gives me hope that we can reach a super bowl with Fitzpatrick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (08 February 2016 - 06:42 AM) Denver has two future HOF edge rushers with Miller and Ware.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (08 February 2016 - 08:01 PM) NO to kapergimmick

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has been called many colorful words since becoming Woody Johnson’s face of the franchise prior to the 2009 season. Throughout all the bombastic press conferences, upset victories, disappointments and strange in-game decisions, his one undeniable trait has become an afterthought during discussions about Gang Green: Defensive genius.

Ryan, despite results that almost always point to excellence on the defensive side of the football, isn’t referred to using the “G” word in coaching circles the way Chip Kelly or Andy Reid or college coaches like Kevin Sumlin are on the offensive side of the football. Instead, Ryan’s accolades on defense are always bantered about with caveats such as “he’s supposed to be a head coach, not a defensive coordinator!”

While becoming a more well-rounded head coach is certainly on Ryan’s to-do list if he’s going to become a great leader in the future, denying his prowess as a mastermind, or not giving him the due he deserves, is a disservice to the biggest reason the Jets have been competitive since Ryan arrived in Florham Park five seasons ago.

As many outlets reminded New York this week, the Giants and Jets shared an identical regular-season record (36-31) and have an equal number of postseason victories (four) since the start of the 2009 season. Of course, all four of those victories came in one magical run for Big Blue. Meanwhile, the Jets morphed into what was affectionately called a circus following their last postseason appearance in the AFC Title Game loss at Pittsburgh.

While statistics and perspective were supposed to bring light to the inconsistency and struggles with Tom Coughlin’s team, it actually highlighted a positive Jets fact. Since Ryan arrived, the team has been pretty good. In four-plus years, Jets fans have watched one losing season, but two trips deep into January.

All 36 of those Jets victories — 40, if we include the postseason — have been due to the strength that every Gang Green fan knows the franchise will have as long as Ryan is the head coach: A strong defense.

With the team surprising early in 2013, the narratives understandably have been about Geno Smith, Marty Mornhinweg and a Jets offense with the ability to throw the football down the field for the first time in years. Offensive changes and improvements will help the Jets sustain success, but the foundation of Ryan’s defense is the reason that Jets-Titans is a compelling game on Sunday.
Despite losing the best defensive player in the sport and veterans along the front seven, Ryan’s defense is excelling. Young players like Demario Davis and Sheldon Richardson — along with the best defensive lineman in New York, Mo Wilkerson — have set the tone for a young, dominant defense.


Yet, through the early stage of this season and dating back to 2012, rarely does the Jets’ defense get talked about with the Seattle’s, Houston’s and Pittsburgh’s of the football world. When looking at the numbers, they clearly should.

Since the start of the 2012 season, which included having Revis for only a little over two games, New York’s defense is ranked fourth in total yards, right behind the trio of Pittsburgh, Seattle and Houston. Despite incorporating young players and adapting looks up front to accentuate the strengths of players signed or drafted by general manager John Idzik, the team has stifled opponents on a weekly basis.

When offenses led by “gurus” move the football despite personnel losses or changes, we call those coaches geniuses. When Ryan’s defense stops opponents on a weekly basis, we take it for granted and point to the aspects of coaching that he doesn’t excel at.

Some coaches are motivators. Some are tacticians. Some are more prepared than others. Few are truly gifted on one side of the ball, giving their team an edge there on a weekly basis.

Ryan is one of those rare coaches.
It doesn’t mean he’s headed for Canton, or the 2013 Jets are heading for a winning season, but it is the reason why the Jets have been competitive since he’s arrived.

Eventually, New York will start focusing on what Ryan’s mind does bring to the table instead of focusing on the headlines and issues everywhere else.
