Many people feared that when things went south in New York, that Rex Ryan may not be able to recover. I have to wonder if people felt you would see this type of spectacular fall from grace.
A year ago, the Jets were making preparations for another Super Bowl run. They had lost two consecutive AFC Championships, but after their recent additions, 2011 was going to be their year.
But after a ton of turmoil, a star receiver that turned his back on his team after an 8-8 record and very little improvements to the roster, the Jets now look like a team ready to fall apart.
Yes, they signed LaRon Landry, who is a very decent safety, and yes, Yeremiah Bell will provide depth for that position.
But the biggest move they made? Bringing in Tim Tebow to apparently be their backup quarterback and special teams specialist.
Let us get real though. The fans already are mixed on who should start, and the moment Mark Sanchez struggles, people will demand that Tebow take the field. All that the Jets have done in bringing in Tebow is create a ton of unnecessary drama and make Mark Sanchez an even bigger head case.
Tim Tebow may indeed start for the Jets later this year and in the future, it just may be without Rex Ryan as his coach after the 2012 season.
