The media, and some fans, will get on Rex Ryan for talking too much and claim they cannot believe a word he says anymore. Rex Ryan will continue to say crazy things. The media, and some fans, will take what he says as big news worth talking about while un-sarcastically talking about whether or not they should be talking what Rex says. (ESPN Radio’s Ryan Ruocco and Robin Lundberg are pros at this sort of double talk)
A scapegoat will be picked. Santonio Holmes and Mark Sanchez appear to be the popular picks right now. Every possible free agent at either of those positions will spark posts about how they can’t win with the player they have now, and need to make a push for this new guy.
A strategy will be touted as what the Jets need to do more, or less, of and favorite players and coaches that eschew the 2011 Jets perceived bad habits will be trumpeted around as guys the Jets have to sign.
We’ve seen it all before with the way the Mets are treated lately. The Jets will try to fan the flames some, but at the end of the day they’ll do what they feel they need to do to get better, regardless of what the fans or media think they desperately need.
One crazy trade that intrigues me as a Giants fan is Peyton Manning to the Jets. I think the two brothers playing in the same city and the same stadium would be an interesting sidebar to next season.
