Rex Ryan The Clown Should Be Fired! Are His Days Numbered as NY Jets Head Coach?
Today's 34-0 loss against the San Francisco 49ers may be the beginning of the end for Rex as a head coach in the NFL.
If the Jets fail to make the playoffs it would be foolish for the organization to keep him as their coach. Then again this is the Jets we are talking about and making dumb decisions seems to be the norm for them. Gang Green is on the decline, they have peaked under Ryan and did not accomplish the ultimate goal of winning a Championship.
Rex is a good defensive coordinator but the head coaching job has been to large a responsibility for him to handle. Making himself the center of attention in order to grab the back pages of the papers in New York is not something seasoned, veteran and professional head coaches do in the NFL. The good ones actually coach and worry very little about headlines.
I can't emphasize this enough, in the Big Apple the media loves to build you up but they also enjoy taking you down when the time comes. In December of 2011 I wrote an article titled Rex Ryan The NFL Clown in which I expressed that same sentiment. Rex has been setting himself up for failure in NYC from the beginning. His antics were funny for a while but when such a talented team starts losing and looking pathetic on the field the fun stops!
Bigger Issues for Rex Ryan The Clown In The Future
Rex Ryan has failed to see the big picture and may have hindered his future in the NFL for ever. I am sure other teams will want him as a coach in their staff, as previously stated he is a good defensive coordinator. With that being said will an organization want a brash, cocky loud mouth to be the face of their team? Will another organization ever give this guy a chance as a head coach if he completely bottoms out in New York?
Head coaching positions (insert corny cliche) do not grow on trees, and when one does become available there are eager, serious and professional candidates out there ready to fill them. Ryan may have allowed his fake confidence (more like low self esteem) to get in the way of his coaching. He bragged, promised Super Bowls, offended the Giants and other teams in the NFL, put pressure on his players and made everything into a joke. Ultimately what does he have to show for all his cockiness? Absolutely nothing!
The chances he gets fired during the season are very low but this current Jets team doesn't look like they have enough to make a playoff run. Forget about the playoffs, this team isn't winning a Super Bowl under Rex Ryan and for that reason alone he should get FIRED!
