New York Jets: Who Do You Blame?

Three game losing streaks are a great time to play the blame game. So who do you blame?

Rex Ryan

Why to blame himHe is the head coach after all…doesn’t spend enough time focusing on offense…big mouth inflates player’s confidence too much. Mike Francesa says so.

Why not to blame himWithout him the Jets would still be a middling, irrelevant team so give the guy a break and a chance to turn it around. He has rebounded from two three game losing streaks in a single season already. Plus he is the man…come on now.

Brian Schottenheimer

Why to blame himIn a Jets fans universe, Schottenheimer is the cause of every problem in your life…more seriously, he has presided over a consistently average offense for six straight seasons…play-calling is predictable and he doesn’t utilize all his weapons enough.

Why not to blame himHe has been dealing with a banged up offensive line, a revolving door at wide receiver, and an inconsistent young quarterback.

Mark Sanchez

Why to blame himLook at his career numbers…he hasn’t grown up enough in three years…still turns the football over too much and hasn’t earned full trust of coaching staff…wears questionable outfits in magazine spreads that disgust Aaron Rodgers.

Why not to blame himHe has been dealing with crappy protection for most of the year…he has answered the bell when given the chance in past years…look at his career numbers, he is a winner and clutch.

Alex Rodriguez

Why to blame him He gets blamed for everything in this market.

Why not to blame himTeixeira sucked in the playoffs too.

The Defense

Why to blame themAlot of hype without the results this year…where you at Bart Scott…how much are you getting paid Calvin Pace…Antonio Cromartie stop getting flagged.

Why not to blame themThey have received no consistent support from the offense since Rex Ryan has taken over.
