    I actually think this will make our lives tougher...great defensive mind. Time will tell. ESPN has the story.

    On the other hand, his old man was a much better coordinator than he was a head coach. Maybe we'll see a chip off the old block.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    I thought that Ryan was hired by Mangini to be his DC?

    I am surprised that the Jets didn't try and hire Gruden.

    As for Ryan being better or worse than Mangini, we'll just have to see what happens.

    This is the twin from the Ravens as opposed to the twin from the Raiders.

    Unless Ray Lewis and Ed Reed are signing on with the Jets......I am not worried. I think he has benefited from the personal that he has had.


    Lets all hope he has Brett Farve at the controls in 2009.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Ryan is a terrific defensive mind and was a great DC, with a much better track record than Mangini. Whether or not he turns out to be a good HC remains to be seen. Dick LeBeau is probably the best DC since Belichick, and he was a lousy HC with the Bengals.

    Even if Ryan turns out to be a good HC, the Jets are a dysfunctional organization. Dysfunctional in the sense that they have not been able to maintain a consistent system or set of values, and in the sense that the owner and GM have made moves independent of the coaching staff (such as trading for Favre). Those are generally not the hallmark of top franchises. Franchises which maintain a consistent system and set of values and stick to it from the top down, and let good football people make the decisions - such as the Pats, Steelers, Colts, Chargers, and NY Giants - tend to be more successful in the long run. Ryan could turn out to be brilliant and still be sabotaged by Woody and Tannenbaum.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Forgot to add, but the Jets may also find themselves in serious salary cap trouble, depending on what happens with 2010. They have overspent significantly on some FAs and executed some really sloppy contracts, which may come back to bite them - they've been acting like they're the NY Yankees in a league which has a salary cap instead of a luxury tax. So Ryan may find himself in an awkward situation a year or two down the road, and end up being made the scapegoat for it.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Ryan just reminds me of a buffoon. Not as much as his brother, but still a buffoon. And yes, I realize he has done a very good job with the Ravens defense...but so didn't Marvin Lewis. And how is he working out?

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    ryan maybe good but it helps to have ed reed to man the entire backfield alone and then using the extra player as another lb or safety or dlineman
    really depends how he drafts.

    Another possible 3-4 Defense? Good thing we have alot of picks coming to us in the upcoming Draft.

    Good signing for the Jets, IMHO. I'm not concerned, though. I am more worried about how BB will improve our defense. We have some holes to fill, IMO.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    There once was another great defensive mind from Baltimore that went on to be a head coach. I believe his team is in the toilet at the moment. :D

    I do think Ryan is a good DC, but how he will do as the main man, remains to be seen. Hasnt worked out so well for Coach Lewis :eek:

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Ryan is a good pick up for the Jets. The problem is that the Jets have no QB, a horrible cap structure, and not as much talent as they should have for the efforts. Not to mention some of their bigger priced acquisitions are on the downside of their careers. Add the fact Thomas Jones is close to the point where he could hit the age wall (as soon as this season).

    Ryan can turn the Jets around, but I think they are already at a point where they have to rebuild.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Yeah, but between their owner and Corky Tannenbaum, I wonder if the first order of business is to handcuff him. They have at least two guys who would transition well to 4-3, and it might make Gholston go "un-bust".

    I still want to see Brady and Favre on the field together, next year might be my chance!

    Down with the Jets. Like... more down.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    I agree. You mentioned Marvin Lewis.

    Also, Tony Dungy was a defensive genius in Tampa. He was going to bring that to the Colts. Or how about Brian Billick, an offensive genius with the Vikings. Does anyone remember all those scoring machines in Baltimore?

    The point is that it's all about personnel and your front office needs to be in synch with the coach. That's why I'm glad the x-mas tree is still running the show in East Rutherford.

    My thoughts exactly. This is the same thing that got both Mike Nolan and Marvin Lewis a HC job and look how that turned out...

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    This is the best the Jests could do, given the buffoon they have for an Owner. "Woody" Johnson drove away the likes of Cowher and Shanahan. No premier, proven HC was going to go work for a guy whose idea of a good strategy was hiring a washed up 39 year old QB to sell his PSL's (and then saying he wanted him back after he showed that he couldn't get through a full season!).

    And, even if Rex Ryan is the next Belichick, the Jets aren't going anywhere until they resolve their QB situation. Hopefully, Favre will return, fall apart after four or five games this year and pospone that resolution one more season.

    maybe Gholston might just see the field

    looks like the jets are likely todraft defense?

    what are they gonna do at qb?

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    I listened to some of Mike Francessa's show this past week. I guess continuing to run a 3-4 D and keeping Brian Schottenheimer as OC was a condition any new HC had to accpet in order to get the job. Both were things not favored by Steve Spagnuolo which is why he was not hired by the Jets.

    Agree. That franchise is a mess and Ryan,tho a great signing, will have his work cut out for him. I hope Brett stays:D

    This whole thing (11.5 hours according to PFT).. sounds like tampering to me.. very strange it could happen this quickly... surely someone will think it is fishy.. what goes around may come around, it usually does.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Well, they were already a 3-4 defense. On the plus side, they will probably not need any help in the front seven especially with their cap situation. So they probably won't be stealing Mike Wright nor be in the market for a LB. They desperate need of updating their secondary, but that obviously hurts the Pats who need help there too.

    You can interview and make an unofficial offer during one designated week of the playoffs, but you cannot officially hire a coach until he is done with the playoffs.
