How Must the New York Jets Perform in 2013 for Rex Ryan to Keep His Job?

Welcome to this week’s edition of “Tweet-Speak”, our new weekly column where you, the J-E-T Press fans and readers, answer a question via Twitter, and see your thoughts and opinions featured here on the website.

Rex Ryan is coming into a big year in his career as the New York Jets coach. Some might call him a “lame-duck”, but we all can agree that he is going to have to get a lot out of the Jets in order to earn the right to come back in 2014. So, I posted the question in Twitter, “How many wins do the Jets need in 2013 for Rex to keep his job?” Here are some of the responses I received from you guys:

An excellent point from our friend Tyson Rauch of “JetNation” and his “the Jets Setter” videos. John Idzik will have to take notice if the team is developing well.


Interesting, at least a bit of a groundswell that Rex needs to get back in the playoffs in order to keep his job. Maybe so. John Idzik would certainly have a hard time justifying letting Rex go if the Jets go back to the playoffs in 2013.



So the general feeling splits at the fact that they need to show progress, without a specific win total, and 8-9 wins with a playoff appearance.

We will find out soon enough.
