Could Rex Ryan be on the hot seat in 2012? The senior blogger for CBS Sports thinks so. He ranked the top 10 hot seats in the NFL, and coach Ryan was number 2. Here is his justificiation
Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Despite making two consecutive AFC Championship Games to start his career with the Jets, Ryan’s team stumbled badly in 2011. Or, at least, appeared to stumble badly — they weren’t that far away from making the playoffs. But the combination of brash guarantees and a disastrous locker room made last year look much worse than it might normally have appeared. Ryan brought in Tony Sparano to fix the offense, traded for Tim Tebow and took some craps-table-esque early draft picks in Quinton Coples and Stephen Hill. If the Jets flounder in 2012, Ryan’s rear might be asked to cash a big check.

With all due respect to the blogger at CBS, can’t say that I agree.
Did the Jets have a bad year in 2011? Absolutely. Did Rex lose the pulse of the locker room? Yes. But that doesn’t put him on almost the hottest seat in the league.
