Jets owner Woody Johnson: ‘We’re not happy with 3-6′

Jets owner Woody Johnson [1] is not happy with his team’€™s performance this season.

The Jets are just 3-6 and are coming off a dreary 28-7 loss against the Seahawks [2] last Sunday.

“The record says what’s going on,” Johnson said Thursday. “We’re a 3-6 team. Are we happy? Are they happy? Are the players happy? I know the fans aren’t happy. The answer is no. We’re not happy. We’re not happy with 3-6.”

There has been speculation that Johnson was the key behind the offseason acquisition of Tim Tebow [3] in an effort to get more interest in his team. Johnson said coach Rex Ryan [4], general manager Mike Tannenbaum [5], and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano [6] made the decision to bring Tebow to the Jets.

‘€œThis, I really want to clear up,’€ Johnson said. ‘€œ[The media has] been accusing me of this phony story of me being more concerned with [personal seat licenses] or cash or something else. Listen, my job 1, 2 and 3 is to win games. That’€™s why I got into football to begin with — to win games. … That’€™s what my passion is. That’€™s what I want to do. That’€™s why I’€™m spending all this time in this organization. It’€™s not to sell PSLs or to sell hot dogs.’€

Johnson would not speak about any decisions regarding the future of Ryan or Tannenbaum, saying he does not address staffing decisions during the season.

“I didn’t sign up for a 3-6 season,” he said. “We haven’t had one of these in a while. I’m not happy about it, yet I am optimistic that some of these things can be corrected.”

The Jets will try to correct it Sunday when they take on the 3-5-1 Rams in St. Louis.
