It looks like the bright lights of the New York media are starting to heat up not only Rex Ryan’s seat but his temper as well. In Ryan’s first two seasons in New York he reached the AFC championship. He has yet to have a winning season since then. The Jets haven’t given fans much to be excited about in the last couple of seasons and I’m sure Rex Ryan is tired of the being the butt (pun very much intended) of many jokes in the wake of a very poor season.
“I don’t even give a sh– about last year. I’m tired of talking about it,” Ryan recently told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.”I’m not worried about being a lame-duck guy,” said Ryan. “I’m not worried about that. I am not. I look at this as an opportunity.” -Marc Sessler of NFL.com July 24th
One thing we know for certain is that if Ryan has another poor season the media spotlight will get that much brighter and his seat will get that much hotter.
