One of the major storylines heading into the 2013 season in Jets Land is the status of Head Coach Rex Ryan. The media would have you believe he has one foot out the door and the team has set him up for failure. The organization has supposedly handed him the real life version of the Cleveland Indians in Major League, a group of misfits so terrible that he doesn’t stand a chance to win and he will be fired after the season. We’ve heard it all at this point: He’s a LAME DUCK. He’s been muted. He has no more personnel power. He has to take the bullets this year so the team can start fresh in 2014 with a new coach. He’s only here because Woody doesn’t want to pay him to leave. His tattoo is stupid. He should go back to being a coordinator. Well, I don’t necessarily see it like that, and the first two days of the NFL draft only reinforced my belief. I think the “Rex is a lame duck” stuff is a media creation. Why draft a “QB of the future” if you plan on firing your coach after the season and bringing in a new coach who may want his own guy? No, this team is building for a future that includes Rex Ryan. I think he is here for the long haul. Call it Rex 2.0.
