Has Rex put his foot in his mouth? Of course he has, and I think it’s a safe bet that the same will continue to happen. But you know what? I really don’t care. I don’t care because the Jets have never had any swagger before, and now they do. What do you want instead? Eric Mangini? He said nothing to anyone ever, and we know how that worked out. Rich “We were swarming” Kotite? I think not. Go around, there is no one better for this team right now, than coach Ryan, despite everything.
My point there is simply this, that the Jets were always looked at as jokes. Almost like they didn’t belong in the league, that is how they were treated. Not after Rex got here, Rex gave them some attitude. And it has worked.
We cannot forget that it has worked. Even though the guarantees were for Super Bowls, they did get to AFC championship games 2 years in a row, leading one at halftime.
They have become a good road playoff team. No matter what happens, the Jets have not been a push over.
