08:02 AM ET 12.06 | Prior to this season, it seemed Rex Ryan reserved his creativity for the Jets' defense. He has always stirred the pot on defense. But in the week leading up to the Jets' comeback victory on Sunday in Washington, Ryan decided to fiddle with the offense and suggested to coordinator Brian Schottenheimer that the team go more often with the wildcat formation. It was a strategy that succeeded on a modest scale, after requiring a considerable amount of preparation. "It was a difficult week of practice," said guard Matt Slausen. ... The change was an indication of just how far Ryan and his coaches have been willing to go in recent weeks to turn around what seemed an almost hopeless cause after the loss to the Broncos.

NO I don't think Rex should be the QB

WILDCAT? How innovative.

At least we get to see more of Sanchez flinching away from DBs like a whipped puppy. I don't see that ever getting old.

The Jets are going to run the Wildcat? Um, Rex, that went out of style last year, kinda like those leg tats you got.

I guess anything to hide the fact that Sanchez is pathetic is good.

How much more damage can this coach do to his quarterback's already fragile psyche? If you don't think you can win with Sanchez, trade him, bench him or cut him. Don't keep messing with him.

Wildcat or not THE JETS SUCK!!!

You know I think I might have heard that before somewhere

Maybe Rex should try the read option. Nah, Sanchez might get an ouchie.

If they deleted all my Jets suck comments, I would probably be in the negative numbers

Great for Rex and a good win for the J.E.T.S. Jets Jets Jets..... but try doing that on some other team. Come on, it's the the freaking Redskins... I guess they had to practice that somewhere.

A ClevelandGuy ripping on somebody else's team. Priceless. Guess you haven't heard the one about pots and kettles.

Getting a decent QB would be a good start... But don't never mind, I love seeing the Jets wallow in mediocrity.... Couldn't happen to a classier bunch of guys.

Everybody is allowed to rip on the Jets, even Browns fans. At least the Browns lose with some class.

He was ripping the Redskins in this case, which is also common practice. At least we Redskins fans acknowledge that we don't have a QB.

Oh I misread it... my bad. But I live in Redskin territory, and well they aren't even fun to rip on anymore. At least the Jets and their fans make it easy and oh sooooo fun to put 'em on blast... I just feel sorry for skins fans anymore.

It's always Cleveland fans and Raider fans that take shots at us for some reason...
