Posted 19 Oct 2014So does anyone else agree that the trade for Harvin may have very likely saved Rex's job?
Had the team not grabbed another Offensive playmaker, it was 50-50 that Rex would get the boot after the season. With the acquisition of Harvin, Rex's odds have just been adjust by as much as 25% in my opinion and it swings both ways.
If the Jets finish 6-10 or 7-9, Rex gets 1 more year to make it back to the postseason or he'll be gone. Rex had Woody's sympathy this year simply because of the debacle that is our secondary through no fault of his own. Neither of the starters are around after Milliner couldn't stay healthy and Peterson was a flake who didn't make it to week 1. We're playing 4th stringers basically and getting abused but yet the team has been in every game but one. If you think Woody hasn't been paying very close attention to that, you're insane.
With adding Harvin to the mix of FA's brought in to give Geno some targets, it only bides well for Rex.
Rex tried to improve the team but a few moves have pretty much backfired. I don't know if Amaro was Rex's pick or Idzik's but he's got bust written all over him unless he learns to catch suddenly. Reminds me of Hill honestly. CJ2K has been all but a flat out bust with Ivory being a true beast and outshining the remainder of our RB corps.
So, with Geno AND Rex both basically being placed in a situation where there are no longer any excuses other than the secondary......I think having Harvin (if he can stay healthy) will lead to 5 or 6 more wins out of the next 9 and Rex will be given another year. Geno is being put on notice that he now has offensive playmakers on paper so he had better get the job done or else we'll be shopping for a new QB in next year's draft which I think we may end up doing regardless.
So what are you guys thoughts?

The Jets have indefinitely suspended Dimitri Patterson. (USATSI)
When word filtered out that Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson hadn't shown up for the team's preseason game vs. the Giants this past weekend, nobody in the organization seemed to know where he had gone.
Though Patterson returned to the squad after 48 hours and met with team officials on Sunday, the team announced Monday it was suspending him indefinitely.
"That will allow us to gather more information to what led to his behavior," general manager John Idzik said in a statement.
Patterson was in line to start at cornerback for a Jets squad that currently has a shortage of healthy defensive backs, especially considering cornerback Dee Milliner (ankle) and safety Antonio Allen (concussion) might have to miss the season opener.
Patterson's absence was strange. He attended New York's walk-through before the game, and he even ate at the pregame meal. But after that, he went missing. The only information the team had on Patterson was through his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, who told the Jets that Patterson physically was fine.
As for Patterson briefly going AWOL, this what he had to say to ESPN.
Josina Anderson ✔ @JosinaAnderson
#Jets CB Dimitri Patterson just text me this: "Yes, I'm ok and I'm not going AWOL either. Comical."

The Jets apparently didn't think the stunt was so funny, though. As for how long we might not see Patterson ...
Dennis Waszak Jr. ✔ @DWAZ73
Idzik says he thinks current suspension will be "brief," but #Jets will issue further discipline after going over all facts, etc

Posted 11 May 2014So now that the draft has come and gone, it's good to see we addressed a couple areas of concern as well as added depth at other positions.
The area that still bothers me obviously is at WR. We missed out on any legit #1/#2 wideouts and passed on those we should have (Cooks & Lee). Cooks is too small and Lee would've been more of a ST guy anyway as he reminds me more of another Stephen Hill with inconsistency. According to ESPN, they tried to trade up in the 2nd to get Lee but couldn't get a deal done.
On that note, do you guys think we may bring in more vets that are out there as F.A.'s?
Miles Austin is a Jersey boy and could always come home and still be cheap enough while also being a mentor to the young guys. Cribbs is still out there as well. I'd go with either of them before calling Santonio in for another visit since they'll both be cheaper than Holmes too.
Posted 23 Apr 2014Jets 2014 Schedule Announced
Randy Lange Editor-in-Chief, newyorkjets.com @rlangejets Blog: Randy's Radar
We Open with 3 of First 4 Games at Home, Then Face Challenging Sixpack
The first 10 games may well tell the tale of the Jets' 2014 season.
Head coach Rex Ryan got a look at his team's schedule before the NFL released all the regular-season schedules tonight, and one thing jumped out at him immediately: three of the first four games will be played at MetLife Stadium.
"I just know the energy and the passion our fans are going to have to open the season," Ryan told Eric Allen on tonight's Jets Talk Live Schedule Special. "Three out of four I think that's the highlight. I just think our players feed off of that enthusiasm from our fans. Our guys, they know how important it is, they appreciate our fans. So we put everything we have into it."
The season opens at home on Sunday, Sept. 7, at 1 p.m. Not unusual. With that game, we will extend our franchise record to five consecutive seasons playing our season opener at home. What is unusual is the opponent: the Oakland Raiders. For the first time ever, the Green & White will play its home opener against the Silver & Black.
Then come three games against the NFC North the first time the Jets will play three consecutive games against NFC opponents since 2001. Game 2 comes against the Packers in the pre-frozen tundra at Lambeau Field. Then come the Bears on Monday night, Sept. 22, and the Lions the following Sunday, both at MetLife.
Then what follows could be our season-making sixpack of games. That Black-and-Blue September will be followed by a brutal six weeks heading into the Week 11 bye: road games at San Diego, New England (Thursday night at Gillette Stadium on Oct. 16) and Kansas City alternating with home games against the AFC Super Bowl representative Broncos, the Bills and the Steelers.
That's four playoff teams from last year with, on paper, a backbreaking combined schedule strength of 59-37 (.615 winning percentage). It's reminiscent of last year's five-game stretch that included games against Atlanta's Matt Ryan, Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger, New England's Tom Brady, Cincinnati's Andy Dalton and New Orleans' Drew Brees. We came out of the stretch 3-2 to come up to last year's bye with a 5-4 mark.
And yes, you probably caught that right: Oct. 12 at home against the AFC champion Broncos and Peyton Manning, then four nights later at the AFC runnerup Patriots and Brady.
"That's interesting how that thing works out," Rex Ryan said with a chuckle. "But you know, hey, we've been there and done it before, albeit not on a short week. But again, we'll be ready. That is a tough stretch. You're facing both teams that represented the AFC in that championship game. It's not going to be easy, certainly."
Any team's NFL schedule is never truly easy. But similar to the past two seasons, if the Jets can survive the first 10 games, there is the prospect of finishing strong against a less imposing array of opponents. From Nov. 23 through Dec. 28 the Jets play at Buffalo, Miami at home on Monday night, Dec. 1, at Minnesota and Tennessee, home for the Patriots and for the third time in four years the regular-season finale at Miami.
That was a very good closer for the Green & White last year as they finished at 8-8 on a high note with the 20-7 win that bounced the Dolphins out of the playoff picture.
This year's final six games feature just one playoff team (the Patriots) and an opponents' schedule strength of 46-49-1 (.484).
However, balancing these thoughts of a strong closing kick is the fact that four of our last six games will be on the road.
One more note on the schedule here is that the Jets will play three primetime games the Monday home games vs. Chicago and Miami and the Thursday-nighter at New England one more than last year's total.
And there is at least the prospect of another primetime game earlier in the schedule than usual. The NFL will extend its "flex scheduling" concept into Weeks 5-10, with the new potential to change only two of those six Sunday night games in that span. The original flex rules of the past eight years will still apply for Weeks 11-17.
Also this year the league is introducing the concept of "cross-flexing," in which a select number of games can move between CBS and FOX to bring potentially under-distributed games to wider audiences.
"It kind of feels like a new season kicks off when you start those voluntary workouts," Ryan said of the players' return to the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center on Monday. "But then when you get the schedule, it's right in front of you and it's like, 'Oh, yeah, here we go.' That's really when the blood starts going a lit bit. Hey, it's time."
