New York Jets and Rex Ryan’s Last SOS: Signing David Garrard?
The New York Jets are the Titanic of the NFL, and much like the movie it is an unfortunately long drama for Jet fans. Scene one begins with the often side-show antics of the Jets skipper, Rex Ryan. The Jets have been starring in the NFL’s professional theater for the past two years. The stage was set in the 2010 season with the showing of “Hard Knocks.” Right after the reality show said, “It’s a wrap,” major problems in the locker room began to air in the 2011 season.
Part of the drama surrounded Jets starting QB Mark Sanchez. ESPN New York reported on January 12th, 2012 that the New York Daily News, “had spoken to key Jets players and they anonymously questioned the young quarterback’s work ethic and said that the team might be better off with a QB like Peyton Manning.” They went on to say that Sanchez was lazy in practice, and knew he wouldn’t be benched.
So the Jets signed Tim Tebow (no drama there). Tebow would supposedly push Sanchez, or maybe just instill a work ethic in the sluggard starting QB. The drama ensued. A sudden qualm fell over New York immediately after Tebow’s press conference, absent of Ryan or any of the Jets front office. Tebow the good Christian man that he is, seemed out of place on the Big-Apple stage.
As the uproar reached its crescendo, the Jets organization told us Sanchez was their starting QB. Tebow, they hinted, would be used in the wildcat with newly signed offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. Tebow could be helpful in New York. Maybe Tebow could change the conversation, or the character of the organization? This made a little sense. It might work. Could it?
The ship took on more water in 2012, and it seemed like the captain didn’t know what to do. Ryan looked all year like the skipper of the S.S. Minnow on Gilligan’s Island.
Ryan and the Jets are stranded, so Ryan is sending out his last SOS to the world of quarterbacks. It was answered by thirty-five year old veteran David Garrard, formerly cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2011.
New York better break-out the lifeboats.
