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.

    The Jets will extend him after the season. Terrible move in my opinion, but they will extend him. Woody is in love with the guy an Idzik will be left with no choice. The guy hasn’t even produced a Divisional Title, never less his brass Super Bowl prediction! Just my opinion, but I see him as a poor head coach.

      Paul, it must have pained you terribly to write that! Regardless I think we’re a lot closer to our next Super Bowl than our last one. Let’s just hope our young defensive core can get us there. Happy holidays.
