Another loss is in the books, dropping the Jets’ record to 6-8. Right away this morning, not only has the debate about Rex Ryan’s job heated up, the talk has even been about possible replacements. People are arguing in the social media world about whether he should stay or go, and who should replace him.
Coach hasn’t even been let go of yet.
There are arguments that can be made either way at this point. You can just as easily justify keeping Rex around, as you can getting rid of him. The point of this is not to give an opinion. The point is, instead of killing each other about it on Twitter now, let’s wait two more weeks, see the result of the ENTIRE season, and make our call.
The next two games are going to tell us a lot. These games are going to show us whether or not Rex still has this team playing for him. Do they play well against the Browns and Dolphins? How does Geno look? Is he showing signs of improvement as we move forward, or is he still doing the same things he has been doing all year?
What about the defense? How are they playing? Do they show signs of getting back to the Rex way? Do they fall backwards, as if Rex has lost them. Every single one of these are key questions that will go a long way in determining Rex’s fate.
That is of course, unless John Idzik has already determined that fate.
But assuming he hasn’t, we need to see what goes on over the last two weeks. The Jets can do a lot in either keeping Rex around, or filling out his pink slip.
But let’s see those two weeks before the Jets on Jets crime gets in full swing again.
