Rex Ryan has always been a fan of guest speakers and this week he brought in Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter, as Brian Costello of the New York Post writes. Carter, now an ESPN analyst, spent three seasons with the Eagles under Buddy Ryan, Rex’s father. Even though he struggled with substance abuse issues in Philadelphia, Carter went on to become a star for the Vikings. More out of Florham Park, New Jersey..
- Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez still has a big fan in Ryan, writes Kimberley A. Martin of Newsday. The Jets could very well be in the market for a quarterback this offseason, but it’s hard to see a reunion going down between Gang Green and the QB once referred to as “The Sanchize.”
- The Jets would be much better off with Sanchez still under center, writes Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Sanchez loved playing in Marty Mornhinweg‘s system and Mehta believes that the team ignored the many strides that Sanchez was making as a quarterback. With more help from the front office in building a better offense, he argues that things could have been very different for Gang Green and Sanchez.
- If it does take a 6-0 finish for coach Ryan to stay with the Jets, fans might as well start saying goodbye to their coach now, writes Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. Despite their stunning upset over the Steelers on Sunday, Walder doesn’t see them running the table on the other side of their bye.n
