Rex Ryan


Jets Stadium TourWoody Johnson (above), who should make that helmet a permanent component of his wardrobe.

There is no dysfunction quite like that Jet dysfunction.  There are no shit rosters quite like Jet shit rosters (anyone besides myself recall a wide receiver tandem of the little engine that could, Wayne Chrebet, and Arena football player Kevin Swayne?).  There are no blown second rounders like Jet blown second rounders (Browning Nagle, Mike Nugent, Vlad Ducasse, etc.).  Don’t even talk about the 1st round, where the Jets passed on Warren Sapp and once drafted Bryan Thomas over sure Hall of Famer Ed Reed.  But understand this: former owner Leon Hess, while not a football man, was an excellent businessman, was kind and benevolent, and oversaw the drafting of the team’s only franchise quarterback, Joe Namath, in its now 50+ year history, and subsequently, the Jets only Superbowl victory, the historic first ever Superbowl win for the American Football League, which helped force the merger that led to the formation of the NFL.

Did he make mistakes?  Too many to count.  Rich Kotite, anyone?  But Hess also hired Big Bill who led the organization to its most successful decade, sans the Superbowl, in its history.  Mr. Hess, which we call him out of respect, an earned title, was a self made man with courage and character, who, to carve out an empire in oil, had to negotiate with a gun barrel to his nose, and who cared so much for his employees that when Dennis Byrd was paralyzed during play, Hess paid out the rest of Byrd’s contract in full, immediately, and took an enormous personal interest in Byrd’s recovery.  Mr. Hess ensured Byrd would receive the very best medical care, essentially bequeathed him his personal aircraft, and sat with Byrd in the hospital every day for a year.

Once when asked of it, a candid Hess told a reporter that if he knew that a player could get injured so seriously in football, he “would have never bought the team.”  Upon Byrd’s recovery, at the press conference when he was released from the hospital, the former player uttered that most famous line, probably the most pride inspiring line associated with the Jets in all history, when he said, “I came to New York from Oklahoma a young Christian man.  Today I return to Oklahoma a young Christian man and a New York Jet.”

The current owner, Woody Johnson, who gets no respectful moniker from us, should not be viewed by anyone, most especially himself, through the illusory prism that wealth and power equate to success.  Johnson & Johnson had made billions long before Woody came to be.  Unlike Mr. Hess, Woody inherited his billions, gained his various titles through nepotism, and whatever honors bestowed upon him through cronyism, the spoils of privilege.  He’s not much of a business man, so far as we can tell.  Let’s be frank.  Billions beget billions.  He’s not much of a family man either, so far as we can tell.  Johnson, when divorcing ex Sale Johnson, soon after purchasing the team, told reporters of the break up that he was looking forward to ‘spending more time with his team.’  It hasn’t worked out for the Johnson family or the team.

As you may or may not know, Woody’s eldest daughter, Casey Johnson, who once famously became embroiled in a public dispute with her own aunt over a paramour, died alone due to questionable circumstances at the age of 30.  She had been described in the press as a “reckless wildchild”, a “wayward heiress”, etc.  Tragedy strikes and is blind to bank accounts.  Do we feel bad about raising a spectre of questionability around Johnson’s personal life?  No.  And for that matter, the spectre was there long before we raised it.  He’s a public figure and is therefore subject to it, as was Joe Philbin, when his low life, rapist son drowned to death and Tony Dungy, whose son committed suicide, and we haven’t blinked once in criticizing those men, whether they were just absentee football lifer fathers, hypocrites (like Dungy, who perhaps was too wrapped up in Jesus and the scourge that is foul language to worry about his own son), or both.

https://crackbillionair.wordpress.com/2010/09/09/dungy-keeps-bashing-jets-but-will-that-bring-his-son-back-to-life/

Is it overly simplistic to blame an absentee, disinterested parent for his child’s lack of mental well being?  Is it?  You tell us.  In this case, we have discerned with Woody a pattern of failure, from his ownership of the team, to his marriage, to his family, and of course, his politics.  Woody, a staunch Republican, was heavily invested in both recent Bush campaigns, and also served as Mitt Romney’s New York campaign manager.  Do we have to ask how that went?  For all his billions, Johnson is a dimwitted loser.  Anyone with even remedial knowledge of politics knew that Romeny’s chances at claiming NY’s slice of the electoral pie were dead even before arrival.  On that bus, there are still plenty of great seats available.  What about the doomsday quotes from Woody about how he feared for America if Obama was re-elected?

“Well I think you always have to put country first,” Johnson said. “So I think it’s very, very important that for – not only us – but in particular for our kids and grandkids that this election come off with Mitt Romney and (Paul) Ryan as President and vice president.”

You know, America seems perfectly fine to me under Obama.  I haven’t really noticed the pervasive spread of socialism and am rather glad that the war mongering ways of Bush’s patrician fantasy world are for now past.  But I am not a billionaire being taxed at a rate I deem too high.  I’m just a Crackbillionair is all.  And if Woody was such a patriot, pardon the pun, why try to cheat his beloved US Gov’t out of a cool $100M in taxes?  That’s what he agreed to pay back the gov’t, plus interest, in 2001, but in actuality, law enforcement believes it to be a great deal more.

So many superrich Americans evade taxes using offshore accounts that law enforcement cannot control the growing misconduct, according to a Senate report that provides the most detailed look ever at high-level tax schemes.

Among the billionaires cited in the report are the owner of the New York Jets football team, Robert Wood Johnson IV; the producer of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” children’s show, Haim Saban; and two Texas businessmen, Charles and Sam Wyly, who the Center for Public Integrity found in 2000 were the ninth-largest contributors to President Bush.

When Woody bought the team, he had supposedly done so to impress his billionaire buddies.  He was gonna win the big game and then flash the big bling at Tavern on the Green.  How’s that working out so far?  You think his buddies are are impressed?  Do you think they were impressed when Mark Sanchez was found to be entertaining an underage girl at his home?  Or when Rex’s wife’s swinger profile hit on http://www.deadspin.com?

Woody was also gonna build that Jets’ mecca on the Westside, which, we’ll acknowledge would have elevated the Jets’ status from 2nd to 1st class citizens, which would’ve rebranded the team and provided Dallas Cowboy like revenue streams.  See, we think Woody cares way more about money than football and that the Jets’ Westside development project was what was really attractive to him, and not so much the Jets, despite the man’s obvious love of green Oxford ties.  We suspect little Bill knew as much, and is why he hastily tendered his resignation, scrawled on a napkin when Johnson took over (“I resign as HC of the NYJ”).

woodyweb2s-2-web

While no one doubts that Woody put a lot of energy into the Westside project at considerable costs, should we commend a man for spending $1B on a failure?  Instead, we’ll add it to the ever expanding list of Johnson failures–a failure from which the franchise has never recovered that has conscripted the team to permanent second class status by settling for another joint stadium.  Johnson blew that billion and has been penny wise and dollar foolish ever since.  Especially, his practice of forcing unwanted players and coaches on the organization.  Brett Favre, forced on Mangini, for the promotional value.  Disaster.  Mangini holdover Brian Schottenheimer, who when he was considered a hot coaching commodity, was given a big new contract by the Jets, forced on Rex Ryan.  Disaster.  Made Schottenheimer a media scapegoat and ruined his reputation.  Tebow, forced on Ryan.  Disaster.  Not our words either, or rather, ours and Special Teams Coordinator Mike Westhoff’s, who went on talk radio in Miami today to call the Tebow situation, among other things, “an absolute mess” and a “distraction” and said he doesn’t understand the rationale behind the acquisition and that he doesn’t think anyone does.

We though the new personnel guy was gonna be Tom Gamble for a minute, or Dave Caldwell.  Hoped it would be Giants’ executive Marc Ross, all guys the Jets have courted.  and by the Jets, we of course mean the outside consulting firm the Jets have hired to run their GM search, because despite Johnson owning his own near billion dollar football organization, he has not one reasonably knowledgeable football man trustworthy enough to make a solid hire.

Originally, the Jets hoped to have a hire in place by the time Rex and ihaveprettyfeet returned from their Bahamas jaunt, someone to begin to spin the stench off the joke, the perennial catastrophe that is the Jets, and to divert attention away from the fact that the Jets organization was so unprepared to face the media that they ignored their compulsory obligation to make the coach and owner available to the press within 7 days of their season’s end.

So last week it was the Caldwells and Gambles, and then this week they have supposedly interviewed six people in the last 2 days alone.  Including the Dolphins Assistant GM, who we’re certain is underqualified.  But a qualified GM would never accept preconditions on the job, such as the shot gun marriage with Rex which Johnson is forcing whomever the new fool to accept.

http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/jets/2013/01/jets-expand-gm-search-will-interview-steelers-executive-omar-khan-and-dolphins-assistan

The expanded search, which now includes way more interviewees than what is a normal when replacing a GM for other teams, is representative of the fact that the Jets are grossly incompetent, clueless, and fucked.  I mean, who but the Jets, would have a hiring search that included Tom Heckert, the GM of a club that lost 40+ games in 3 years in Cleveland, or even worse, personnel people from the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL?  Now I don’t like Wes Welker at all, but when he said that shit about the Patriots “putting their best foot forward” against the Jets, ‘toe the line’ or whatever, we can’t blame him.  The Jets are a joke, continually perpetuated by their own organization, so how can anyone be angry when people joke about them?  In fact, we are pretty sure that the only reason that Belichik came down so hard on Welker was because he feared not doing so would provide the Jets extra motivation.  In short, he fined Welker in order to have a better shot at success in a football game.

The original title for this piece was to be, “NYJ: Woody Johnson, Billionaire Moron, Despicable Human Being, and Gross Incompetent, Should Sell the NYJ”.  But since all of that is dreadfully obvious, truths we hold self evident, we instead opted for a Welkerism.

Same old Jets?  We wish we could somehow return to such a comfortable level of incompetence, one we had come to accept.  Instead, we are mired in incompetence that we can only describe as mind boggling, prolific, and sublime.  After Dennis Byrd returned to Oklahoma, the Jets, as a kindness to their fans, should have disbanded, letting us all root for the Giants.

In loving memory of Dr. Jet.  Now if he would only stop haunting my house.

Mark Sanchez (above) at a recent Knicks’ game between actress Chloe Sevigny and Jet TE Dustin Keller.

We’re not going to say too much about this until more of the story comes to light, but www.deadspin.com is in the process of breaking a big story about Mark Sanchez, a 17 year old New Jersey girl, and some photos apparently stolen from Sanchez that were taken in his bedroom.

On Friday afternoon, Deadspin published a letter from a lawyer representing a 17-year-old girl warning them that there will be legal action if Deadspin publishes a story about his client. A.J. Daulerio, Deadspin’s editor, doesn’t reveal the nitty gritty of the story is, but he doesn’t leave in many blanks either. 

Daulerio writes that they’ve been working on a story about Sanchez “romancing” the girl in question and that they are in possession of photos sent to them by the girl from Sanchez’s bedroom. Daulerio promises that the entire story will be revealed on Tuesday and writes that the Jets have been made aware of the story and are preparing a statement.

Again, it’s hard to know what really happened as of this point, but obviously Sanchez is less than the squeaky clean poster boy he plays the part of.  We are not saying he slept with the girl, but we will tell you we believe the age of consent is 16 in New Jersey.  Although, if something did go on, who really knows when it started?

First lady of the Jets, kids!  A regular fucking Jackie O!  Dating while married, just like JFK.  Woody Johnson, if you’re listening, please part ways with such pitiful trash.  By the way, go check out www.deadspin.com for the latest in “hilarious” foot fetish videos–for non Jets fans, of course.  Yeah, in one she’s got her nips hard and you can catch her in a pair of black panties while she waves her feet at the camera.

Then there’s a 3 minute, 47 second clip of her where she’s reading a paperback on a couch, then kicks her shoes off and starts massaging her toes through panty hose, and then wriggles her feet for a while, and then flexes her calfs for a bit. 

Then we got her in one with a beer bottle on another hotel couch, another with a pair of reading glasses on and a hard cover, wriggling some pink pumps, and another outdoor job–11 minutes, 14 seconds–while she massages her feet on what looks like the Ryan back porch.

No disrespect to swingers or foot lovers intended at all.  What makes this horribly wrong is that it’s connected to the Jets, and once again, while the Jets are preparing for an important football game, they are made to answer questions about a dumb coach or a dumb whore.

Jets’ coach Rex Ryan’s wife Michelle Ryan, or as we suspect, banned youtube member ihaveprettyfeet (above).

The indignity never ceases with the New York Jets.  Fresh off a stunning, season saving win over Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, and what may have been a career saving win for the Jets’ 2nd year head coach, comes the news, along with video evidence that Rex’s wife may be a notorious foot fetish video internet poster, and more disturbing we guess, that it seems Rex has played camera man/off camera co-star to his pretty footed wife.

We wish we were making this up.  We prayed it was made up.  But upon seeing the video, we at least, have zero doubts.  And what’s worse?  Dolphins fans were first to the news reported by www.deadspin.com, adding insult to the injurious and pathetic loss to the Dolphags we suffered at home last week in which we dropped but could not score a touchdown.

This May Or May Not Be Rex Ryan’s Wife Making Foot-Fetish Videos (UPDATE)

This May Or May Not Be Rex Ryan's Wife Making Foot-Fetish Videos (UPDATE)There’s a celebrity in the foot-fetish world who posts videos with titles like “Hot Mature Sexy Feet.” The videos feature a woman who looks like Jets coach Rex Ryan’s wife, Michelle — and, in one, a man offscreen who sounds like Rex.

A few years back, YouTube user “ihaveprettyfeet” — who shares a number of personal characteristics with Michelle, though we’ll get to that later — made a series of videos, apparently starring herself. In them, her feet, whether in stockings or shoes or simply bare, are always prominently displayed. An attractive older blonde, “ihaveprettyfeet” became hugely popular, to the point that when YouTube banned her account for terms of service violations, devotees took to message boards to wonder where she’d gone.

Her videos have been reposted by others on YouTube, and with so many followers, it was only a matter of time before one of them happened to be both a Jets fan and a Deadspin reader, too. We received a tip from one such person that “ihaveprettyfeet” was the spitting image of Michelle Ryan, wife of maybe the most popular coach in the NFL. “At least a twin sister,” the tipster said. Michelle Ryan doesn’t have a twin sister, but judge for yourself.

This May Or May Not Be Rex Ryan's Wife Making Foot-Fetish Videos (UPDATE)

We were told by one source that if this is Michelle Ryan, there’s no way Rex knows about it. But listen closely to the voice of the cameraman. Multiple viewers, including a YouTube commenter, have observed that it sounds an awful lot like Rex. Now, we’re not into feet or anything, but if that is indeed Michelle, and that is indeed Rex, well, more power to the both of them. Like many, many people out there, Rex is just in love with his wife’s feet. Shit, it’s almost romantic.

I need to throw up a few times and then plunge myself into great white shark infested waters.  If I survive, I’d respectly request a tractor or tank run me over.  I know it’s true.  Rex talks so much, I could tell his voice anywhere.  This is like Death and the Maiden for me when I heard Rex’s voice–I became Sigourney Weaver.

Don’t worry Jets fans.  Sure, it was hard to top getting trounced by the Pats 45-3 in terms of embarrassment, but of course, the Jets have limitless embarrassment potential. 

The fire Ryan/hire Gruden petition will be together soon, but in the meantime, I’ll be needing a grenade to stick in my mouth.  They dare bring more ridicule to this poor franchise.

Super Bowl winning Giants’ coach Tom Coughlin (above).

On what he did after Sunday’s 4th quarter debacle against the Eagles that culminated in a DeSean Jackson walk off punt return TD, given in a not purposely funny interview:

Asked what he did after the awful loss, Coughlin was rhetorical.

“What did I do? I sat in a room with the lights out for about two and a half hours,” he said. “It’s not funny. It’s not the way it’s supposed to be.”

Really?

“Yeah. Sure I did. What was I going to do? Join in on what festivities? What time of the year?”

After answering a few more football related questions, the topic returned to Coughlin and the dark room.

How many losses have you had where you’ve gone and sat in the dark?

“A few, unfortunately. Sometimes the Christmas lights weren’t on,” he said.

Is this the worst one that you can remember?

“I’d say it’s the worst one that I want to remember,” Coughlin added.

Sorry Tom.  You’re a fine coach, and we know you’ll pull the Giants through this.  But yo, giving yourself the lights out treatment is so funny to us, and totally understnadable.  Do us a favor and stick Rex in there with you next time.  He can use it.

To get a resolution to Darrelle Revis’ 5 plus week long holdout, the New York Jets signed the all-pro cornerback to a new deal on September 6th, despite Revis’ having three years to go on his rookie contract, which wasn’t exactly a bad deal for the player.  The Jets ponied up a 4 yr/ $46 M contract to their disgruntled star, with a whopping $32 M guaranteed, despite the player having absolutely no negotiating leverage beyond his greatness, and his agents’ ability to scare the Jets by scaring the fan base that the league’s only true lockdown corner would not be in uniform came game 1 against Baltimore.

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/jets/2010/09/05/2010-09-05_rex_ryan_meets_with_new_york_jets_allpro_cornerback_darrelle_revis_to_discuss_co.html

I am always pro player in money disputes with management, in football and hockey especially.  In those sports, careers can go by in a blink, and management, in general, would have no qualms about turning the table on a player who has given heart and soul to the team, once his play starts to decline.  In football, where the money is not all guaranteed, teams are the most cold hearted when it comes to cutting ties.  Football is the only sport where players actually give back money to their teams, or renegotiate their contracts on the team’s terms, if they feel their team may cut them and force them to uproot their families if the player does not comply. 

Good for Darrelle.  He got his money.  Did he exploit the Jets?  Absolutely.  Did Nick Mangold need to do so to get his new $ 57M contract?  No.  Will David Harris need to pull a lengthy holdout to get paid?  That’s highly doubtful.  Woody Johnson has 27 billion dollars.  Everybody’s going to get paid.  Again, I favor the players.  But when I heard that Darrelle Revis was stopped on Friday doing 80 MPH in a 40 MPH zone, and the excuse he gave, the whole Revis situation, in mind, had to be resivited, with no praise forthcoming in Revis’ direction.

(NewsCore) – New York Jets star cornerback Darrelle Revis was ticketed for speeding and careless driving by police in New Jersey, the Newark Star-Ledger reported Friday.

Revis was reportedly pulled over Thursday in Livingston, northern New Jersey, as he headed to nearby Florham Park, where the Jets’ facilities are located.

He was driving 81 mph in a 40 mph zone, according to the Livingston Municipal Court.

Livingston Police Capt. Jeffrey Payne described the traffic stop as “uneventful, normal.”

Since he was traveling more than 40 mph over the speed limit, Revis will have to appear in court Nov. 4 before resolving the issue.

“I’m not a speedster; I was just trying to get here to work,” said 25-year-old Revis, who is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at Denver because of a hamstring injury.

http://www.myfoxny.com/dpps/sports/jets-revis-ticketed-for-speeding-dpgonc-20101015-gc_10136662

Sorry if I am especially sensitive to this issue, but my wife and daughter were in a serious accident at the hands of a careless, wreckless, speeding driver.  And Revis, trying to pull out a common man’s excuse, that he was late to work, is greatly deluded.  First off, Revis was 36 days late to work.  He doesn’t really get to be late to work, after that, after having $32M in guaranteed money bestowed on him. 

No one ever said these guys were smart.  Obviously, Revis, as smart as some may feel he is, a defensive coordinator on the field and whatnot, is football smart only.  We are about 3 weeks removed from Rex Ryan publicly calling for the Jets to stop “being that team” and stop embarrassing their owner with knucklehead decision making away from the field.  Should he have benched Braylon Edwards?  Never.  And he was right on that, and so were we.  We needed him to win, we need to win, therefore, the player must do what he is paid to do: play.  The courts dispense justice, not the Jets. 

I hope the Jets play Revis, as I am sick of hearing about his hamstring, which he hurt because he did not attend training camp.  And I hope he actually contributes this week to their passing defense.  Last week, the Jets hid Revis from Randy Moss, and Revis still got burned by Percy Harvin, and on one play, was tossed to the turf by Harvin like a rag doll.  Revis might be the best Jet–when healthy–but he hasn’t been healthy, and that can be squarely attributed to the player’s greed.

So Revis?  Get to work early.  You are paid well enough.  And do everything right, the way Braylon Edwards has done since getting in hot water.  Because if it’s not about your football greatness and the glory you bring to the New York Jets, then we are all sick of hearing about you.

In Jets’ coach Rex Ryan’s news conference after the Jets defeated the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football America, 31-23, Ryan said he was happy with the win, but that the play of the defense ‘hurt his pride.’  The Jets gave up over 400 yards of total offense and over 350 yards passing to Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne.  That’s not to say the Jets have been awful on defense.  They have allowed only 47 points in 3 games for an average of 15.67 pts a game–a number they should be able to win with.

Still, the Jets have allowed 3 100 yard receivers against them in three games, and they aren’t getting to the quarterback all that much.  Enter Trevor Pryce, who led the Ravens in sacks last year with 6.5, and who is third in sacks amongst active players.  And let’s not forget that Pryce put up 13 sacks for Ryan in 2006 when Ryan still served as the Ravens’ Defensive Coordinator.  The Ravens released Pryce earlier in the week, despite Pryce being a starter for Baltimore at end.  Though the Ravens said they intended to re-sign Pryce, they never got the opportunity.  As soon as the Jets heard of his release, they pounced on Pryce, to the delight of Ryan and former Ravens Bart Scott and Jim Leonhard.

When asked if Pryce, a 14 year NFL veteran had any juice left, the loquacious linebacker replied that Pryce had “more juice than Tropicana.”  Scott also insinuated that several other Ravens must be jealous that Pryce found his way to the Jets.

Now let’s be real.  The Jets picked up a 35 year old pass rusher.  Again (recall Jason Taylor).  But Taylor, a former arch rival, has earned his wings with big hits on Tom Brady and Chad Henne in successive weeks.  Like Taylor, Pryce represents an upgrade at end opposite Sean Ellis.  Vernon Gholston, still looking like a bust from here, has yet to register an NFL sack, despite a few near misses.  The Jets are missing three prominent players on defense–their best player, Darrelle Revis, behemoth Kris Jenkins (out for the year, and possibly his career), and top pass rusher Calvin Pace.  Pryce brings a much needed boost to a squad that could have Revis and Pace back next week for the Vikings on Monday night football, or, the Jets could choose to sit both again, with the bye coming up after Minnesota, which would give the Jets a very healthy squad, hopefully, from then forward.

As for tomorrow in Buffalo, Pryce is definitely what the doctor ordered.  Pryce was given a playbook by the Jets upon arrival, but he doesn’t really need it because the Jets and Ravens run the same defense.  So much for Pryce taking his kids to Six Flags this weekend.  That was what he had planned, but when Ryan heard about the trip, he informed Pryce he would be in several pass rushing packages versus Buffalo. 

Great news.  an upgrade is an upgrade.  Too bad we’ll have to look at Drew Coleman in the starting lineup, who is perhaps the worst corner in the AFC East–but Pryce’s addition almost makes the Coleman thing acceptible.  I look for the Jets to notch a big win in Orchard Park tomorrow, and would like nothing more than to see Pryce contribute to the victory, which means pain for Bills’ new starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

As for Kyle Wilson, who has struggled mightily, we are still very upset that the Jets did not use the 28th pick on Chiefs’ rising star Dexter McCluster.
