The outspoken head coach of the New York Jets should be worried about keeping the locker room in check.
The media frenzy and fans’ debate on Mark Sanchez vs. Tim Tebow has temporarily quieted down, but that’s only until the season opener against the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 9.
And this is not the only tough game on their schedule.
Playing away against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Miami Dolphins will be challenging.
And as if that isn't enough, the following game is against the San Francisco 49ers.
By the time the Jets get a break playing the Houston Texans on Oct. 8, they may already have a losing record. That will get fans talking again, or rather demanding that Tim Tebow start at quarterback.
If Ryan doesn’t get it right these first few games, his expertise in coaching the Jets will be seriously questioned.
