  • I miss Rexxx.. Go GREEN

  • Sam darnold and Zach Wilson will now be compared to each other because Sam is being seen as a draft pick. Let's see who has a better career

  • If they draft Wilson they're dead. He will bust in 2 years. He's so overrated and is a complete media fascination. I've lost a lot of respect for JD and think what they did to Sam was disgusting. I hope Sam destroys them in week 3 because they deserve it. Bet ya they sign some 3rd rate backup QB and they throw Wilson to the wolves. He couldn't even handle any decent defenses in college. This is going to be so bad for the Jets. They could've traded back and actually built a team. And the money thing is just an excuse. Sorry Jets fans but Go Sam. I think Sam will be an all-pro under Matt Ruhl. Panthers got the steal of this trade and Draft. When you actually think about what the Jets could've received for the number 2 pick and then compare it to Wilson its sad. Like Mel Kiper said , Sam with Kyle Pitts is better than Wilson or Wilson with other players. When he busts this franchise will be the laughing stock of the NFL. . Maybe Woddy should sell the team or move to London.

  • Rex is a douche. Hes so insecure and paranoid. Rex the narcissist .

  • Coming from a die hard Jets fan I’m so happy darnold is finally gone. People loved to throw all the excuses in the world for him but didn’t realize he was our biggest problem. Dude isn’t NFL material and it’s that simple. Anyone that says otherwise is a causal.

  • Mark brunell

  • So the C on his Jersey means nothing? 😂

  • I want rex back who wit me!!!

  • What ?! The Best move the Jets ever made besides getting rid of Hase Adams was getting rid of this Wino Rex Ryan !!! 😂 Ask Boomer Essiason the questions not a idiot

  • And this is why Rex is no longer in the NFL. Josh Allen sucked his first two years. Had he been on the Jets, he would have been traded because we would have drafted Burrow with the #1 pick

  • So happy we get to see how “great” Sam darnold is gong to be with good weapons around him.

    • Dude is 💩 and people just love to give him every excuse in the world

  • What would Rex know about a winner??? He’s never been a winner.

  • Imagine if Rex came back as DC woooo man

  • Sam Darnold didn’t start 10 games for the jets in his time there. The Jets won zero of those 10 games. So this whole bs argument "Sam didn’t win enough" is over.

  • Hey Rex, Ground and Pound and one of the league's best defenses, not Mark Sanchez.

  • The grubby gruesome college habitually crawl because index explicitly haunt since a graceful insect. apathetic, puffy gander

  • Wonder what Josh Allen would do if he was drafted by the Jets?

  • 00:34 “I Love Being Right”

  • rex talking sanchez lol

  • Like Rex but Mark Sanchez is why he doesnt have a couple SB rings imo and just went 1 game short of the SB with one of the best D's ever. Rex was loyal to Mark but clearly Sanchez was nothing special

  • Rex forgot Sanchez had Mark Brunell as his mentor. The whole team was also stacked with veterans to provide that guidance, too.

    • Rex talking rookie year of Sanchez in 2009. Brunell with Saints in 2009. He came to the jets in 2010.

  • I ben sayin this ...y wasnt the guy a captain...does he have character issues?

  • So we continue to sweep away injury concerns when your drafting at 2 ? Life of a jet fan 😂

  • More importantly what’s his madden rating gonna be with the panthers next year .

  • The worst weapon on the Panthers is the best weapon Sam ever had. Try to dispute that statement.

  • I would take Fields over Wilson. Wilson hasn't played against anyone. Fields is even better on the run than Wilson is. Wilson is small and the fact that he wasn't captain is a huge red.flag. I watch Wilson and he looks no different than Sam Darnold in college. And Sam played against better competition.

  • A lot of darnold fans in the comments didn’t know he had so many

  • Bengals coaching staff should have had each of their ACL's torn like Joe Burrow had happen to him ! It was a travesty that they got off the hook and if I were Borrow I would want some get back

  • Rex...trippin

  • Love Rex but Sanchez was THE reason we didn't win a Superbowl....

    • If the Jets defense shutdown the Steelers on third down in that AFC Championship Game, I think Sanchez would have led a game winning drive to get to the Super Bowl that 2010 season. People forget that he did lead the league in game-winning drives that season.

  • Rex was wrong, the Jets had Mark Brunel, he was a good mentor for Sanchez. Wilson can ask Morgan or White what???

  • Sam is 10000x better qb than Sanchez

  • Did Rex just threw Mark Brunell under the bus? Lol

  • Say what you will about Rex but even in losing seasons his players played their hearts out for him until the end. Maybe our new coach can make that happen cause we haven't had it from our Rex yrs

  • Rex needs to get over the past

  • Mark Sanchez one of my favorite QBs. Yes, he had an elite supporting cast, but it also takes a lot to know how to read defenses, and make correct decisions. Being a game manager does take skill. He outplayed Brady, Manning, and Roethlisberger that year and had ice in his veins when the game was on the line. I really believe if he got the ball back against the Steelers that they would be in the Superbowl

  • If the Jets had any intelligence they should not draft that goober Wilson. Mormons do not fit in a New York market. Plus they don’t draft BYU players just like they don’t draft from the state of Mississippi.

  • Rex Ryan like a boss!

  • Rex's hot takes are terrible.

  • Never bringing up the second best QB in Justin Fields, but I’m a Pats fan so I’m used to the Jets making horrible decisions lol

  • why is the kid, "not" the team captain?

  • So Rex thought Darnold was sub par? And it has nothing to do with environment? Why am I not surprised

    • Ahhh another casual who thinks it’s all the coaching staffs and other players fault but not darnold at all lol you morons don’t realize darnold was the biggest problem the Jets had. He made the team worse. He’s trash and always will be.

  • Bart and Rex are the only ones I trust when it comes to my Jets.

  • Jets still going to be bad

  • I'm glad justin fields is avoiding this disaster of a franchise

  • Lastly thank you Rex, revis, and Sanchize for bringing us the only 2 afc conf appearances we’ve had since 1982

  • Now they can trade back

  • Rex Ryan is a top 4 jets coach maybe top 5

  • Mark Sanchez is the most underrated ah of the decade, he wasn’t great, but he was solid

    • facts. And people forgetting that in 2012 he has no weapons.

  • Mark Sanchez is a top 5 jets qb ever

  • Rex takes are worse than Paul pierce

  • Wasn't Rex in the original Point Break and Big Wednesday??? 😂😂😂

  • Honestly.. if I had to take Sanchez or Darnold.. im taking Sanchez.

  • Why does anyone talk to this blowhard about offense he is the same guy who gave Tannenbaum the ok to dump Edwards and Cotchery and make Holmes the number one. Does anybody remember losing every week 6-3 and him saying after every game Mark gives us our best chance to win. Oh and he replaced Cotchery with Derek Mason, I think he caught one ball that season.

  • Rex makes an interesting point,but then that means the run game would have to be phenomenal..

  • Rex speaks his mind and isn’t afraid to say it; Sam stunk, it’s not the weapons it’s the fact that he stared down his #1 read every play and threw so many boneheaded picks and cost the jets a ton of football games... good riddance.

    • Dude Sam sucked at USC turnover machine deer in headlights.

    • @Ezra Guttmann Everyone treats him as if he’s a good quarterback.

    • People who didn't watch the games really get behind Sam. It's the most frustrating thing besides losing itself to have the QB stare down the receiver and then get intercepted.

  • Darnold will Make The Playoffs Next Season The Jets , Well , Another Top 5 in the 2022 Nfl Draft Good Luck Sam , The Jets Fail with You , Sorry

  • One good point Rex made is you don't throw the ball 50 times a game. Give Zack a break with the run and ease him into the league.

  • Zack gone be hothot trash

  • Wonder if Rex still has his Mark Sanchez tattoo? All kidding aside, Zach Wilson has already had two surgeries on his throwing arm (labrum and hand) in college. The Jets have done nothing so far in the offseason to improve their woeful offensive line. They better find a stout backup for Wilson (if they actually pick him then start him) because I think he will be on the IR list sooner rather than later. Fifty two years and counting....

    • Above is in regards to Rex’s Sanchez tattoo.

    • Lol, I think when he got to Buffalo he removed the number and changed it to a blue Bills jersey. If I remember correctly, NY Post ran the story.

  • Go check out my sports channel pls

  • My concern has been the jets organization anybody who watches football. Knew the outcome once they hired gase.

    • Typical casual throwing the excuse on Gase. If you actually watched Jets game you would see darnold was our biggest problem by far. He’s trash and isn’t NFL material.

  • BYU lost to Coastal Carolina b/c they were a really good team. They were 11-1 REX c'mon... smh

    • BYU should NOT have lost to coastal lmao

  • Rex is crazy🤣

    • He’s crazy for calling the worse QB in the league trash? Sure whatever you say........

  • Rex is a buffoon ... his opinion is useless

  • Rex ryan uses mark sanchez as a comparison like if he’s joe montana lmaoo

  • From reading the comments you can see people don’t listen to what’s being said. This is a problem in life in general as well

  • I like that there's a wide range of opinions on Darnold. Some people think he's going to be special in the Carolina offense and some think he's not even average. We'll see.

    • Yeah, just like the Dolphins had 3 years to see how bad Tannehill was before he was traded away to Tenn and is killing it now. Gase is weirdo and terrible coach.

    • @Bear 7453 in three years the jets been awful buddy

    • Dude, you’ve had 3 years to SEE lmao

  • Trey Lance never played at a high level against high level competition.Justin Fields is a one read quarterback with the ability to use his legs.Why is everybody giving Justin Fields a pass over his inconsistent play against average teams in a weak Big Ten conference? He is no different than the lad five over hyped one year starting quarterback quarterbacks that flamed out.

  • It's a bigger chance Sam is a bust then a great QB. Welcome to NYC Zach Wilson.

    • DARNOLD IS 💩

    • If Zach has the type of OL that Sam did .. he’s on a stretcher

    • @JR SOIL So 1st explain to me how you justify giving Sam almost 20 million dollars next year if we keep him. Zach was a financial decision as well, you don't understand that. Joe is a well known GM in the league with a great reputation, Robert our new head coach is a well respected coach, especially by his old players. We have 80 million in the salary cap, multiple picks in the next few drafts in the 1st and 2nd round and other earlier rounds. We signed some free agents that should help us out. We get Zach Wilson and surround him with talent. Becton and Mims stay healthy, We're gonna be well off. Jets right now are in a better position to rebuild then they ever were in the past. Do your homework before you comment. That's your problem you dont read essays, books, newspapers etc.

    • @LEX Man I'm not about to read your essay report about Zach Wilson! 🤣 Dude hasn't play a minute in the NFL and you trying to crown em. He played for BYU and he's going to the jets. Now do I hope him success I do but I'm not betting on it.

    • @JR SOIL No actually Wilson has been compared to Pat and Aaron. He can make all the throws they can from different angles. He has a rocket arm too. Hes definitely is a better QB coming out of college, and hes smart. He is the number 2 QB in the draft that's almost locked in. Sam please, the Jets are mainly responsible for his performance, but that does not change the fact Sam in his 3rd year still can't read defenses, he still misses wide open receivers, he is a turnover machine, won't throw the ball, away fumbles all the time, Hes not a leader no emotions, Look at other quarterbacks they evaluate less talented players around them. Sam can't do that, hes injury prone, 3 years in the NFL never played a full season, and probably never will. In big moments he always comes up short, look at Sam's career at USC he usually came up short when they needed him to get the job done. Zach has alot bigger upside. How do you justify paying Sam almost 20 million dollars after this year? That's insane he doesn't deserve it. Again the jets are mainly responsible but it's time to start over with a new quarterback. 3 years of Sam hes shown nothing too say hes gonna be a great QB. Wilson also is gonna be a lot more affordable on a rookie contract. All in for Zach Wilson.

  • 104th comment keep pounding Carolina

  • Sanchez had two pro bowl offensive lineman and solid wr in Santonio Holmes and LT with the best defense in the league with revis in cro sam darnold didn’t have one solid oline one solid offensive weapon Robby was his only guy. Sam is so much better then Sanchez lol

  • ... fr?

  • Tee-hee-hee "What's next..." is Carolina drafting Sam Howell in 2022 since they'll likely have Pick No.1 after a 2-15 season lol Gee, I really needed a good giggle after a hectic-drenched Tuesday at work hahaha

    • they definitely want be 2-15. I beat a hundred that they will win between 6 and 9 games

  • And that’s why Rex Ryan isn’t a head coach

  • Mark Sanchez stunk. Rex Ryan also stunk.

  • This was the same guy who drafted Sanchez lol

    • He's not the GM he was the HC GM drafts guys but im sure he had some say

  • Rex, the Jets lost all ten games Sam Darnold didn't start.

    • Won two in the games he did dating back to week 15 last yr .

    • Oh yeah, he beat the browns who lost half their roster to covid by throwing 130yds and he beat the self imploding rams with a whopping 230yds. He's CLEARLY the better QB

    • @BBG INC Sam Darnold went 7-6 in his starts in 2019 and was the only reason they won those games besides Jamal, then he injured his collarbone after a few games in 2020 and y’all dumbasses blamed him for getting injured even though you praised Burrow for getting schmacked around all year. And if you were a real Seahawks fan, you’d know that Slippery Pete was the sole reason our offense fell off so hard after midseason

    • @BBG INC go hawks

    • @V Knight haha that not my team though, my team won a superbowl in 2014. Russell Wilson and Pete Caroll are far from trash lol

  • Rex Ryan the genius of spotting good QB's had Mr ButtFumble himself Mark Sanchez. Def a great eye for QB's.

  • Good question Bart. Someone needs to speak up for the African American college quarterback.

  • The NFL has seen QB shine/blossom when they leave that coach and horrible organizations like the Jets. I'll said it before i feel for the QB they subject to this organization

    • @Randy Daniels we havent even had the draft yet. we just got the new staff and you're already committing them to failure. if you are a Jets fan, please find a new team for your own mental health. if you're not a Jets fan, then please let us professionals deal with our franchise misery

    • @WH Lewis u hope they can do they are throwing a rookie QB to the wolves with no OL, defense, or weapons Sam was through into the same thing the new regime is making the same mistake that previous regime made so good luck with that

    • It's a whole new group and structure running the Jets now. If the Browns can do it, so can the Jets.

  • This guy is praying on a rookie left tackle to bail him out.

    • Who? Benton? He's not a rookie anymore

  • Dude acts like the Jets aren't a dumpster fire

  • This is a bad comparison Sanchez was in a much better situation & even then he couldn't succeed, those 2009-2011 teams won in spite of him lead by top defenses & a very strong run game & offensive line.

    • @Romeo Tene i was joking sayng "slightly" better. dumb joke - but it should be obvious when u see those 3 names.

    • @WH Lewis mangold was arguably the best center in the league at that time woody was still pretty solid and Ferguson was above average your absolutely clueless if you believe the jets have that right now

    • D'Brickashaw, Nick Mangold, Damien Woody just slightly better than the OL in front of Darnold.

  • Don’t disrespect Darnold to Sanchez. Sam Darnold did not have the offense and coaching that Mark had. The roster was terrible

    • Mark sanchez was clearly a better quarterback , plain and simple.

  • Imagine Rex's Jets with a good Quarterback

    • @Romeo Tene yeah man, I've actually supported our moves this offseason and think we're finally on a proper path, but like you said, with our Jet luck we'll somehow we cant get excited too early

    • @justin shay seems like that’s the trend with us honestly we weren’t bad enough to get Stafford so we ended up with Sanchez we weren’t bad enough in 83 we missed out on jim Kelly and elway and for some god awful reason we passed up on Dan Marino to take ken O’Brien and now we was locked in the drivers seat to end up with the next “generational” talent at QB but we just had to beat the rams 😂 best thing we can hope for now us Wilson ends up as good or better then Lawrence

    • if we were bad enough to get stafford instead of sanchez, we possibly couldve won or continued to be relevant instead of an embarrassment

    • @Thomas Francis he was a defensive minded coach not really his job to put together a great offense and find a great QB that’s what GMs and scouts are for

    • @Blackcobra1981 Mangini built that team ... once Rex and co started fiddling with it it was downhill from there.

  • Mark Sanchez’s weapons, protection, defense and coaching were 50x better than Darnolds

    • @Kevin Warner between getting a coach not named gase and signing Davis, Wilson already has more support than sam ever got

    • If The Jets support Wilson the way they did Darnold, they will trade Wilson in a few years.

    • @Garenthal Have you seen how good of a season Robby Anderson had after he left Jets to Panthers?

    • Sanchez also won a lot more

    • @Randy Daniels well they already got him a better receiver than they ever did Darnold

  • Then you got the wrong cat 🤣💀

  • Uhhhh Rex .. Mark Sanchez had Mark Brunell ...

  • Mark Sanchez was protected those first 2 years. They had an elite defense, their O line was really good, and they had a great running game. Those jets teams were loaded. The verdict still out on darnold we will see how he does in Carolina.

    • @Pablo Snaqz Bodega Just hope we can surround him so he doesn't have to see ghosts too

    • Yeah hes made of glass.... So long ... Glad to be getting a new QB

    • @LETS TALK ABOUT IT Dennis is talking about the 2010-2011 Jets. Sam's Jets had no run game, no pass pro, no WR's to break down D's, bad OL penalties constantly/always in 3rd in long, bad coaching/bad system, and the weight of the franchise on his shoulders, and he was pressing more and more under the weight to make good things happen. Not unexpected that he struggled here.

    • Does an elite defense have both your highest paid linebackers out for nearly 2 seasons? An elite defense was the the jets in 2010-2011, our running game was Leveon bell behind an ok o line , so I would say ok protection, ok line, good defense, solid recievers, awful offensive coaching, but nothing good or great

  • Sam darnold is a great QB

  • Scrolling and saw thumbnail and thought TB12 let go and gained weight lmao

  • 9 straight years of the Jets blowing their 1st round picks, SHEESH 😬

    • Sound like the patriots

    • @Jace macfie ownership. that's the common f*cking denominator. the jets are owned by morons who keep doing moronic things. you can fire everyone but the owner. that's the problem.

    • @James Butler confused what previous regimes have to do with the current one

    • @Jace macfie If you've been married 10 times maybe the problem is you not them. Just a thought.

    • @James Butler well that’s just not true

  • I bet Bart Scott pist the fact this clown Rex Ryan said Sam Darnold wasn't the quarterback expected to be .Before the season started all these clowns said Sam has posed including that Rex Ryan .Now let's see how good this kid is going to be. My opinion he not better than Sam it's going be bad year for Zach Wilson. Hope I'm wrong .Rex so Delusional.

    • @S Thompson I'm actually shocked then.

    • No he actually agrees

  • That’s he’s still a coach

  • They should have never sold you fools ProTools

  • As a Jets fan I'm just happy that Darnold is getting another job

    • @V Knight not true.

    • Wilson will be trash for you too because there are literally no pieces around him at all.

    • I hope Sam Darnold comes back and beat the stuffing out of the Jets.

    • I hope Zach doesn’t became Zuck Wilson

    • @Bear 7453 courtesy of your shitty team

  • Why is he talking about Mark Sanchez like he was a model franchise quarterback

    • Because he had a more successful career than 90% of nfl qbs lol

    • Those were the best two years of his coaching career. Rex has done absolutely nothing after that

    • Because he picked him, and his crowning glory was those two years.

    • @digonto zahid Sam is not goin to make 2 nfc championship games I doubt it next season he has no excuses an bet still be 6-11 next year

    • @digonto zahid I doubt Sam ever makes it into the conference final

  • Glad Rex is gone an idiot

  • Jets pushed that “self destruct “ button again...

    • No they didn’t. They don’t have to pay their QB for another 4 years now. They screwed Darnold but that’s in the past. If they like Wilson more than Darnold then it makes complete sense, and they got more picks out of it.

    • It’s a life cycle
