Has Rex Ryan lost his appeal?
I remember not too long ago when Rex said with confidence that players would prefer to play for the Jets. I think Rex believed that he was a players' coach, and that he made things fun under his regime.
I no longer believe that, and I am sure all of you out there agree. Matt Slausen was a player that Rex personally asked to remain a Jet. Looking back at last season, it was Rex's decision to mix Ducosse in left guard with Slausen, which from what I remember Slausen was not happy about, nor was the O line coach. Result, Slausen leaves to go elsewhere.
I feel that the undoing of this team and ultimately of Rex Ryan will be that he has finally lost his appeal with the players. I feel that given the choice, players want to play elsewhere. Only money or a contract will keep them here. If Rex is to survive, then he needs to make playing for the Jets fun again; if not, then this will surely be Rex's last season as head coach of the Jets.
What say you?
