The New York Jets are all but officially out of the playoff hunt, but don't tell them that. at 3-6, Jets coach Rex Ryan still thinks they can right the ship, pointing to 2009, when Gang Green suffered two three-game losing streaks, including being at 4-6 at one point, yet still got to the AFC Championship game. If they're going to accomplish the near-impossible, it starts in St. Louis against a 3-5-1 Rams team that is playing with a lot of confidence coming off a tie with the 49ers in San Francisco. DECIDING FACTORS: Schotty play-calling. The Jets will be up against former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who was run out of town at the end of last season. Schottenheimer leads an improving Rams offense that has thrived on the run as of late. The cat-and-mouse game between Schottenheimer and Ryan's defense will be entertaining.Running up close. Shonn Greene and the Jets' run game absolutely needs to get things going against the Rams, especially in the red zo...

Debate: Rex Ryan as Patriots Defensive Coordinator in 2013?

It seems impossible, but for the sake of fun, let's not rule it out. Would you want Rex Ryan to come to New England to coach the much maligned Patriots defense? Would Rex want to do that? Would Belichick?  These are the questions we at PatriotsLife had some varying opinions on. Here's a recap of our e-mail debate. Be sure to chime in with your thoughts in the comments section...

Rex Ryan Sidesteps Smack Talk, Says He’s ‘Not Worried About Tweaking New England’

The Jets and Patriots play two football games a year. They also play another game, where Jets coach Rex Ryan says something stupid and the Patriots shove it back in his face. But not this time, apparently.

Jets quickly turn focus to Pats after win vs. Rams

Rex Ryan has no message for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots this week. Nope, no fightin' words this time around. After all, the way the usually brash coach sees it, the New York Jets (4-6) need to focus on themselves and ''punch our way out'' of the hole they got into with three straight losses before a 27-13 win Sunday at St. Louis. The victory...

Cowboys' Rob Ryan ready for Cleveland reunion

Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan doesn't pretend to ignore that the Cowboys are playing Cleveland for the first since the Browns dumped him when they fired Eric Mangini two years ago. Even when he's pretending. ''Honestly, I'm going to say no,'' Ryan said when asked if he had discussed this week's personal motivation with his players. '...

Week 11 AFC East game picks: Jets at Rams

Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' inter-conference contest with the St. Louis Rams. Nick's take: When Jets coach Rex Ryan and Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer shared the field during Schotty's time with the Jets, Rex's defense ran the show. I think that holds true when the...

Lawrence Vickers and Rob Ryan: “It’s personal”

Lots of quotes came out of Dallas Cowboys practice in the last 24 hours, including two notable former Browns. Let’s start with the fullback. Lawrence Vickers, a 2006 6th-round pick by the Browns, left as a free agent following the 2010 season. Here were his comments on facing his former team, as reported by ESPNDallas.com: “It’s personal, why wouldn’t it be? It anybody tells...

Joe Caporoso - 12 Pack  Chris Gross -  Jets 23-Rams 17: Can New York turn a week of internal turmoil into enough motivation to grab a road victory in a must win situation?

New York Post Fires Shot at Bill ‘Butterball’ Belichick, Blames Patriots Coach for Rob Gronkowski’s Injury

It’s still early in the week, but Rex Ryan and the Jets have remained somewhat tight-lipped in advance of Thursday’s Thanksgiving showdown at the Meadowlands. The same can’t be said for the New York media. In what seems to be a customary move, the New York Post fired a shot Tuesday morning with its back cover. The target: Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. The back page of...

No Huddle – Crucial Win In St. Louis Edition

4-6 is not the type of record to go celebrating in the Meatpacking District over. The way New York athletes often do after big victories.
