New York Jets Notes, Quotes 2009-01-30
--One of the concepts new Jets coach Rex Ryan is taking from a year under Baltimore coach John Harbaugh is a weekly Tuesday night meeting involving the head coach, and the three assistants in charge of offense, defense and special teams.


As of Jan. 21, Ryan knew the identity of two of the other three men who will be at those meetings. He hopes soon to know who will be the other one.

Ryan introduced his defensive coordinator, Mike Pettine, who was outside linebackers coach with the Ravens since 2005 and was an assistant with Baltimore since 2002. Veteran special teams coach Mike Westhoff was in the auditorium while Ryan was conducting his first news conference as a head coach, and he is staying on.

Ryan was able to convince offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer to stay in his current position, despite being passed over for the job that went to Ryan.

"If anybody has gone through what Brian has, I know the disappointment he's feeling by not getting this job," Ryan said.

--The status of the team's interest in Brett Favre was the one issue on which Rex Ryan was somewhat vague during his introductory press conference Jan. 21.

"I would think anybody would want him as their quarterback," Ryan said of the 39-year-old icon, who slumped badly down the stretch in 2008. But he didn't add anything more definitive than that.

The Jets are in a tricky spot. They don't want to look like they want to cut Favre loose just yet, because that could hurt their bargaining power in a potential trade.

General manager Mike Tannenbaum told radio station WFAN-AM in New York he would like to have an idea of Favre's plans by the time of the NFL Combine, scheduled for Feb. 18-24 in Indianapolis. "I want to get a feel for the situation by Indianapolis," Tannenbaum said.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I'm ready to play right now." -- SS Eric Smith after attending new coach Rex Ryan's introductory news conference.
