NFL Injury Report:
While it’s been widely assumed that the New York Jets will
retain head coach Rex Ryan beyond this disappointing season that ended with the
first meaningless games of his career, he’s yet to receive any assurances that
he’ll be back, reports Dan Hanzus of NFL.com.
A 6-10 record means a second consecutive dark postseason for
coach Rex Ryan, who is 34-30 in four seasons with the Jets. There will be
turnover in Florham Park after this mess, and Ryan was asked after Sunday's
game if he has received any assurances from Jets owner Woody Johnson that his
job is safe.
"Nope," Ryan replied. "Sure haven't."
The Jets finished the season with an ugly loss at the hands
of the lowly Buffalo Bills yesterday, wrapping up their year with a 6-10
record. There has been significant turmoil with the team this season,
specifically stemming from their handling of the quarterback position.
Still, it’s expected that general manager Mike Tannenbaum
will be the “fall guy” and not Ryan, according to Hanzus. Considering the team’s
expectations and the limelight of New York City, Ryan will enter 2013 on the
hot seat if he is retained by the club.
