Adam Schefter from ESPN put out a tweet Saturday saying that all signs point to Rex Ryan returning to be the head coach of the New York Jets. Sources say that Rex Ryan and John Idzik have met multiple times to discuss the future.
There has been massive support for the coach on twitter as the hash tag #KeepRex has been in full swing. Many feel that Rex has overachieved with winning seven games (so far) and could end the season 8-8 and kick the Dolphins out of the playoffs.
There are now multiple signs pointing to Rex Ryan returning as Jets HC next season, per sources; still some issues to work through, however.
Rex Ryan has that front seven on defense humming, and I know he can make adjustments for the secondary. If Rex leaves, it’s like we are hitting reset and starting over with part 1. It’s like this year was a waste, and I believe we should build upon this year. Geno Smith was a rookie and yes it was the ultimate roller coaster ride, so if you’re not sold on Geno, giving him real competition and the right to earn his starting job should be done.
Give Geno and Rex talent. Surround them with the top players on offense. Give them this next year and let’s see what they can do. If you fire Rex now, you are hitting reset on not only the offense, you are asking for a mulligan on defense too and that would be a major mistake. Let’s keep the same coaching staff in place, Marty Morninweg could do wonders with talent. I’m impressed that we were able to win six games with the personnel we had this year.
Give Rex and his coaches one more year to turn this rebuilding plan around.
