09:36 AM ET 12.08 | Rex Ryan was notorious for coddling Mark Sanchez, through word and deed. He has taken more of a tough-love approach with Geno Smith. Ryan knows the honeymoon is over. He was lucky to be spared the guillotine after 6-10 last season. He will keep a short leash on Smith if need be because so much is at stake for him. It doesn't mean he isn't rooting for Smith, because the rookie quarterback's development now trumps whether the Jets make the playoffs in what has deteriorated into the rebuilding year everyone expected. Ryan is counting on offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg to help get Smith right before it is too late for all of them.

If you're counting on Marty Sexy Rexy you better be calling a realtor.

OAK Jets, I seriously hope that's not my only choice at 13:00.

I think Rex already has a few realtors in mind.

Locals here get Det-Philly and Fins-Steelers early, then Gints-Chargers late. Thank you, Sunday Ticket.

Early offerings on the affiliates here are Chiefs/Skins and Lions/Philly.

Colts/Bengals interests me... but DET/PHI has way more meaning in the big picture. I'll probably be locked in on that one.

Strange. One of my Directv receivers says Philly-Lions at 11:00, the other says Vikes-Ravens. Even my dish has a hangover from Ohio State-Mich State, I guess.

Awww, you're no fun, Abe.

Its hard to explain but I think Geno lacks the ability to read defenses. Travaris J was the same. Had all the tools and the Vikes gave him three years to develop then had to pull the plug.
Reading defenses can't be taught. The mind has to envision what people will do on the ball count, most QB's get it others never do and its interception city. I think Geno is one of these guys and will never work out. Too bad the Jets will have to give him a couple years to find that out. Too bad for the fans.

Methins Sexy Rexy is about to be permanently let off his leash.
