What is Rex Ryan’s job security level heading into the New York Jets 2013 season?
One of the most common questions surrounding the New York Jets this year is “what is it going to take for Rex Ryan to keep his job?” The Jets have low expectations and many argue that the front office has set him up to fail so new General Manager John Idzik can bring in his own guy next off-season. Rex Ryan isn’t an optimum situation but I wouldn’t paint him as a dead man walking quite yet.

Dalbin Osorio breaks down New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr

Cole Patterson finds parallels between the NFL and Game of Thrones
The art of story telling is one of the greatest aspects of humanity. Some have the uncanny ability to spin intricate tales that absorb the audience and create catharsis. George R.R. Martin is one such rare individual. His Song of Ice and Fire series has enchanted millions. HBO’s adaptation of the series, Game of Thrones, brought Martin’s visions to life and inspired a massive cult following. The popular show has turned many of us into drooling, nerd-slaves to Martin and HBO’s genius.
What on earth does this have to do with football you may ask? Little and less. Yet, the NFL and its dramatic matchups, ever evolving rivalries, and team defections create a literary piece all its own. The inner workings of the NFL can be told as a story; complete with plot twists and cliffhangers, antagonists and protagonists. With that in mind we would like to unite the oft overlapping fan bases of the NFL and G of T by drawing parallels between the National Football League and the world of Westeros.

Cole Patterson on New York Jets linebacker Demario Davis, who head coach Rex Ryan believes has “it”
Demario Davis’ career as a New York Jet began with a staggering comparison and 36 tackles. When the Jets called his name with pick number 77 in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Jet fans were left wondering who the linebacker was. This reaction was justified as Davis had not been linked to the Jets and had a fifth round or lower grade from most “draft experts”.

Mike Donnelly examines the New York Jets offense surrounding the quarterback position
With the first round of Jets OTA’s in the books, the debate on who should be the starting QB come week 1 against Tampa Bay is really heating up. The fanbase is as down on Mark Sanchez as ever, and the vitriol directed towards him has reached monumental proportions. Yes, I am aware of the reasons for this, and whether it is a fumble, an interception, a headband, another interception, a silly quote, or a buttfumble, Sanchez has clearly brought most of this on himself. But while everyone was tracking each and ever pass each quarterback threw during OTA’s and coming up with a snarky joke or hateful comment about one of the passers as quickly as possible, I was focused more on who was on the field with the quarterbacks.
