07:49 AM ET 04.15 | If Darrelle Revis departs by way of a possible trade to Tampa Bay, Rex Ryan's world may change a bit. The looming trade to Tampa Bay of the NFL's best cornerback, if executed, would serve as another reminder of ruinous philosophical differences between a GM and a head coach with entirely different visions and agendas. Goodbye, Revis Island. Hello, Ryan Island. ... You trade your best player when you reach the conclusion it is unwise to pay any cornerback, even this cornerback, $15 million a year, when you know full well that your team won't be playing in the first New York Super Bowl until you first and foremost find your franchise quarterback, and then plug the bountiful leaks on the ship that be sinking.

This isn't getting old. It was old a long time ago.

It seems pretty simple , you trade him or you pay him. If you do neither one and he becomes a free agent next year and walks, then the Jets GM and Coach will be fired.

I remember reading that Tampa Bay set a trade deadline, I can't remember if it was set for today or one week before the draft, which would be this Thursday.

I say that the FN interns should be shot if they postpone more Revis story.

It's easy to bang on Rex for all of the Jets woes (and god knows I love to being a Pats fan) but when I look at the situation closely, I really place more weight of the problems (sure, pun inteneded) on the GM and owner. I think he is a pretty decent coach and while he is full of crap at times, he had that team surging the first couple of years. Then came all the meddling.

The Jets were good the first few years and then came the roster turnover, bad draft choices and of course the Tebow prayer circus. If I owned the Jets I would trade Revis tomorrow for a sixth or seventh rounder and cut Tebow.

15M for Revis is too much money. Jets need a lot more than Revis. Better to trade him and save some money and get more draft choices. Maybe the Jets will get lucky and sign some good players. Not that I care for I am not a Jets fan.

The coach and the GM need to work together if they are going to solve this mess. That is one good thing the Saints have, a good GM who works with a great coach. Trust me, Goody, we will rise from the ashes. You put the stink on the Saints to save face because of the lawsuits. You also did it in an attempt to scare other teams from playing hard. Football is not like the Badminton scholarship you got at some nothing school.

RR is a typical Ryan, a good coach who thinks he's a HOF coach and convinces others by proclaiming it loudly and repetitively. The question about those Jets teams is did the addition of Ryan enable them to make the AFC championship games or were they poised to do it anyway and he just came on board at the right time?

It's hard to believe either Rex or Revis will be a J-E-T in 2014.

"weakened Ryan">>> brings to mind>>> "beached Whale"

look at the rosters.he overachieved with those teams BIG TIMEwho did we lose that became a pro-bowler elsewhere?- not saying that they weren't solid players and good veterans- - rex has not been perfect- but he deserves a hell of alot of credit for winning 4 playoff games with a mediocre qb and average talentthe last 2 years, though, his mistake was not adapting to the roster turnover. They brought in receivers and didn't throw them the ball, their O line got worse, yet kept trying to run up the middleBut the first 2 years- rex deserves credit

Good points all and am inclined to agree. Like many I'm put off by his personality and probably tend toward giving him less credit than he deserves.

I don't think Ryan needed Revis to weaken him.

QB's should be over paid. Not a CB, on a bad team. It's wasted money. Trade him for scraps. Either way, the Jets will suck, so it makes no sense to keep him.

Jets wanting to include Sanchez in a Revis trade reveals weakend Ryan. Sanchez is the starter only because Rex Ryan is coach. How much worst does Sanchez have to play before losing his starter role? Sanchez still has a "leg up" on the competition.
