ESPN Reporting that Rex Ryan will be back as HC for the Jets?

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.


I’m in the camp that we should let Rex play out his current contract and keep him for the 2014 campaign.  I don’t think he should get an extension just yet.  Let’s see how 2014 starts out and if it is going well, extend him during the season.  I’m sure his agent Sexton will be pushing hard for one now, but I’d like to let it play out.  I do believe that if the Jets let the coach go after Sunday’s game, they would be taking major steps backwards.


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.

    REX did a great job with the talent he had this year. The team will get him all the players he needs to make a run for it next season. If he fails then perhaps he should go elsewhere. But lets give him a fighting chance with top of the line offensive players and a real cover safety!
