    A Franchise In Ruins And A Coach's Future In Doubt

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/22/sp...=football&_r=0

    Excerpt: "Until Sunday, the last time anybody had heard from
    Rex Ryan
    about something more significant than his distaste for the Baltimore Orioles was a month ago in a lavish ballroom at the league’s annual meeting. With the recovery from one season almost over and the stress of the next one months away, coaches are usually at their most relaxed and expansive at those gatherings.

    There was a diminished quality to Ryan that morning, though, as he acknowledged being humbled by a six-victory season, being haunted by a Super Bowl prediction that he made a football lifetime ago, being stung by the parade of free agents who left this spring. Asked about a potential trade of cornerback Darrelle Revis, Ryan said that he had his own opinion of things, but that he would keep it to himself, a concession to his new place in the hierarchy so out of character that Buck Showalter must laugh.

    Ryan did summon one moment of throwback bluster while discussing how he felt about being judged for a season that would be played with a roster not wholly of his choosing, perhaps without the player on whom his defense had hinged." Read more...

    Such a huge difference between the states of both New York teams. The giants are one of the most stable organizations in the league while the jets are just a complete and utter mess. I sort of feel bad for their fans. Well atleast the ones who aren't obnoxious
