    PATHETIC Green Rats Jumping Ship? DC Pettine Declines An Extension!

    Per PFT

    dd defensive coordinator Mike Pettineís name to the list of Jets employees who may be looking to leave. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Pettine has turned down an offer to extend his contract. Absent a new deal, Pettine will become a free agent after the season.
    The Jets have a top-10 defense this year, despite having a bottom-two offense.
    Unless Pettine is holding out for more money, itís possible that he has grown weary of laboring in the shadow of coach Rex Ryan, who gets most of the credit for the performance of the teamís defense.
    Like the contract of Saints coach Sean Payton, the specific expiration date of Pettineís deal could become a key factor. If the deal doesnít end until, say, January 31 and if the Jets opt not to release him before then, Pettine could miss out on other opportunities.
    Does he know something about Rex being replaced? About Rex being demoted to his position? Is he just being prudent regarding the possibility, if not likelihood of a wholesale housecleaning by Woody and leveraging his nice qualifications from a postion of strength? Or might he be just fed up with Circus Life?






    "Yep. Blow it up. This might the worst team I've ever seen constructed in my life.
    And then you throw in the terrible preparation and in-game coaching. There is no defense.

    I've never heard of a coach being demoted and actually accepting the job. You know of any examples?

    If anything after reading this it sounds like Rex will still be around. Why would they offer extensions to coaches Rex hired if they were bringing in a new HC who would want their own dudes? Either way this is interesting. Not often you see coaching turning down contract extensions.

    Pettine and Ryan go back to college, if I remember from Hard Knocks. I think they were roommates. My guess is that Pettine's just being loyal. He's not going to sign an extension unless he's sure that Rex will be back, and he's probably not sure about that right now, nor should he be.

    Add in to the mix that westhoff is set to retire after the season, no legitimate qb on the roster and I can't see how they keep sporano, looks to be a total rebuilding process beginning on dec. 30th for the jests.

    Can't blame him. I wouldn't want to be associated with that circus. I hope they bring Rex and Sancho back so we can enjoy the laughs next year as we watch them battle for the worst record in the league.

    Financially speaking, I'd bet Sancheez is back.

    He'd be the perfect mentor for M Barkley?

    For the Dolphins sake I hope they get Barkley. I'm not impressed and I've watched a lot of USC football.

    I have watched a fair amount of Trojan football as well & agree.

    p.s. Barkley fears Star Lotuleilei from the real U.

    The Jets are not going to do anything in 2013 and Rex will likely be gone after next season. Smart move by Pettine to get out now.
