Seriously… It’s not Rex Ryan’s fault…

I’ve got a Christmas post I need to get up, but I wanted to get this time sensitive post up first.

It’s now being reported that Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan wants to be fired if his team owner won’t spend a ton of money to revamp the offense.

Interestingly, if you look at the comments to the story above, his quitter mentality isn’t going over very well. But, I’m sure Rex is right. I’m sure Offensive Coordinator Tony Sparano was a great hire — even though Rex didn’t like him.

And I’m sure it was a great idea to offer QB Mark Sanchez a massive, multi-year contract after you doubted him so badly that you went after Peyton Manning.

And I’m sure you were right when you decided your team didn’t need a team captain and was certainly the best team you’ve ever coached, as you said time after time after time — all the way up until just a few weeks ago.

But go ahead. Blame Tebow. Blame the owner. Blame the media. Blame the offense. Blame whomever you choose. We all know what’s really going on here… (And, no, before you go there, I’m not one of Tim Tebow’s religious fanatical fans.)

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give, a book I believe to be worth $10,000.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. I’m excited to say that Little Man, and the Dixon County War  has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here). My second novel, Sold Outhas also done well, also, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.

  1. To be fair, going after Manning wasn’t that bad a reflection on Sanchez. Everybody that though Manning was going to pull through all that with his neck wanted to take a look at him.

    It definitely IS a circus there in New York, and I don’t think Tebow’s been given a real shot. What can you say? 😉


    1. That’s a very fair point about going after Sanchez, but I still don’t get why they gave him a fat contract. They should have said, “This is a make or break year. You do well, we reward you big-time. You don’t? You get to go shopping.”

      BTW, I noticed the other day we share a very similar upbringing. My Dad is a construction worker and a Missionary Baptist Deacon, though for all intents and purposes he’s been more like a preacher.

      Anyway, I figure we’ve both been to a few thousand church meetings and learned that there is more than just one use for a wide, leather belt! (Still enjoying the book, though I haven’t made much progress lately due to Christmas and being sick.)
