Rex Ryan: "The Problems are Not Only One Man"

After the performance against Miami, a lot of people are calling for it to be Tebow time in New York. Many fans have had enough of Mark Sanchez, and want to see the reigns turned over to Tim Tebow. Frankly, the fanbase is clearly divided over the issue. As anyone who read this blog knows, I am of the opinion that the change will never be made. Here is what coach Rex Ryan had to say when asked about what could be done during the bye to correct the problems:

I think you look at a lot of things. Offensively, the problems aren’t one man. If it was one man, that’s easy to do, but it’s not on one person. Sometimes we’re accurate with the football, we dropped some passes, sometimes the pass might have not been as accurate as we wanted it to be and then there (are) times when protection let us down. So there are a lot of things that go into it. Obviously, our blueprint, if we have to throw that many times, we’re generally not going to be very successful because we need to run the football. That’s part of who we are. I think there were times we were able to run the ball, fairly effectively, and then there are other times where we couldn’t get the length of the football. We just have to look at those things, and really take a hard look at what we’re asking our players to do, and not just offensively, but in all phases. Is there something we can do that we’re missing? I think we have enough talent, it’s just a matter of, really, quite honestly, trying to carry over what we’ve done on the practice field over onto the game field. We’ve had some tremendous practices where I’m extremely confident and (it) just never carried over and I don’t understand why, but those are things we’re searching for.

Without even going into it by name, he said that a change at QB is not what will make a difference. He later reiterated that Mark Sanchez is his guy.

That’s not going to change, ladies and gentlemen. This is how it’s going to be, no matter how we feel about it.
