Is Ryan The Secret To Reversing The Curse?

It has come down to the final game of the season for the New York Jets. Win and they're in! I just wish it was that easy.

Facing a Cincinnati Bengals team that has already clinched a playoff berth, the Jets and Bengals get the spotlight as their game was changed to the 8:20PM slot. This means that everyone will be watching this game and all the pressure will be on Rex Ryan and his NY Jet soldiers.

Rex Ryan is in his first year with the Jets. He has led them to an 8-7 record and remarkably, a win against Cincy will put them in the playoffs. But will it be that easy for the Jets to waltz in?

The New York Jets seem destined for football failure. They haven't appeared in a Super Bowl since Joe Willie Namath took them to the promise land in 1969. That was Super Bowl III, this will be Super Bowl XLIV. It seems like a life time because for most it is.

Are the Jets cursed? Many believe so, but my beliefs are very much different. In '69, Gang Green was led by Weeb Ewbank. However, what most people easily forget is that one of Ewbank's assistant coaches was Buddy Ryan, Rex's father.

Buddy Ryan was in his first year as a Jets Assistant and became a part of history. Now, his son Rex could give the Jets a chance at history once again. Nonetheless, they need to take care of business against Cincy first.

Will the Blood Line of Buddy Ryan reverse the curse? Nothing is Impossible...
