08:02 AM ET 12.25 | Where has one of the NFL's most forthright head coaches gone? After Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Chargers, [Rex Ryan] went from simply not telling the truth about the [Greg McElroy] choice to flat-out fibbing when asked why Jeremy Kerley took Wildcat snaps instead of [Tim Tebow]. Knowing about Tebow's initial refusal to take part in the Wildcat once he was passed over as the starter was the reason, Ryan told reporters the use of Kerley was his choice and it was installed as a surprise tactic for the Chargers. Ugh. ... [Ryan] used to deal with the truth head-on like a bully in a back-alley brawland now has turned into this meek guy running and hiding to cover his derriere.

Interns have no heart. We all know Rex is a scumbag but it's Christmas for crying out loud guys.

Everything in Jet land is a debacle.

They need help badly.

Starting with a new QB and some pass rushers.

No jokes about '' running and hiding to cover his derriere.'' Horse blanket?

Indeed. I'm even starting to feel sorry for Tim Tebow.

Hard to believe, right? How can one coach single handedly turn a decent NFL franchise into a joke so quickly. I'll bet Tebow had no idea what he was getting involved with.

Well it's Christmas after all, "Goodwill towards men" and all that.

Jets need to get rid of the GM & the head coach first before they make any roster changes.

He'll end up somewhere else and be given a chance, something the Jets never did for him. The best Christmas present he could get would be a release, so he could go out on his own and find some team that will be happy to have him.

Rex can be a politician after his coaching career is over
