In the span of 10 months, the Jets went from being at the top of the mountain to the bottom of the pit in the NFL landscape.
The team went from being a viable Super Bowl contender to a media circus.
Many blame Rex Ryan for the sudden regression. They believe he has no authority over the locker room, and that the team will never be successful again under his leadership.
However, rumors that the bombastic head coach might be coaching for his job are crazy.
Ryan has led the Jets to a 28-20 record in his three-year tenure as head coach. The franchise has appeared in two AFC Championships with him at the helm, despite mediocre play from the quarterback position.
Ryan is also one of the game's finest defensive coaches. His superb blitz packages and defensive schemes have helped the Jets rank in the top five in total defense in every season he has been running the team.
Despite his loud mouth and inability to control his polarized locker room, Ryan is one of the best minds in the game.
He will be in Gotham for a while.
