The New York Jets' loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday night was the type of inexplicable, embarrassing game that gets coaches fired. Jets coach Rex Ryan says that's not going to happen to him.
"I do, I do," Ryan said when asked if he expects to be coaching the Jets next year, according to The Star-Ledger. "And I think our team will play a heckuva lot better, and I don't think anyone will ask that question by the time the year is over. That's my personal opinion."
He doubled down on the notion Friday.
"I'm responsible for everything. I'm responsible for the 4-7 record," Ryan said. "I'm also responsible for how we'll finish."
Their next five opponents aren't too intimidating: Arizona Cardinals, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills and San Diego Chargers. It's not that crazy to imagine the Jets going 4-1 against that slate and getting to 8-8 which in this watered-down AFC it might get them talking about playoff contention.
"Watching the tape, it's still hard to fathom the one stretch," Ryan said Friday, via the New York Daily News. "I've never seen anything like it in all my years of coaching." Source: NFL.com Attached Thumbnails

If you tuned into the Turkey Day tilt between the Patriots and Jets, you might've noticed the conspicuous lack of playing time for Tim Tebow.

New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller took to Twitter to call out Jets fans who apparently booed when it appeared that Mark Sanchez went down with an injury.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- A couple hours after it happened, Rex Ryan was still in disbelief. "Thirty-five points in a quarter, I thought that was impossible to do," Ryan said. But the New England Patriots are pretty good at making the near-impossible into a commonplace event. The Patriots tied a franchise record by scoring 35 points in the second quarter -- a stretch...
