03:33 PM ET 11.14 | Rex Ryan took to the podium on Wednesday for his regularly scheduled media availability, and his press conference was inundated with questions about anonymous Jets bashing high-profile back-up quarterback Tim Tebow. The critical comments appeared in the New York Daily News this week and were made by players requesting to remain anonymous. Ryan took more umbrage with the anonymity than the comments themselves, saying those who were quoted should "put your name to it."

You've got that right, Mangler. Seems crazy to keep putting Tebow in there when you're claiming so much confidence in your starter. Rex may be obnoxious and bull-headed, but he knows the business and he knows a QB can't improve if you keep yanking him off the field like that. I don't believe Sanchez is a starting QB anymore, quality-wise, but I believe they should give him every opportunity to succeed right up until they pull the plug.

Probably not and the Jets started down this road when they hired him as a HC. Ryan is yet another example of a guy who can succeed as a coordinator but not as a HC. Like father like son.

Rex is the one who was quoted anonymously in the newspaper.

... and revamped it into the Mocker Room.

Wonder if Ryan will get on the coaching carousel at the end of the season, before Sanchez QBs for the Pop Warner Alumni Bowl?

For the Jets' next act, they will bring in Michael Vick who has agreed to be the grand marshal at the Westminister Dog Show.

That's a ruff job ...

Rex is so angry he will start Tebow just to prove to the team that its not over. That Tebow is the savior the owner thought he was and everyone should watch out here come the jets. Here come the jets. Ok, so if they don't win, there goes Rex, there goes Rex.
