09:04 AM ET 12.31 | Rex Ryan reiterated his belief that embattled offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer will return to the staff next season, but he then added a caveat. Ryan maintained that Schottenheimer should be a candidate for head coaching positions. ???If he gets a head coaching job, then ???See ya later.??? I???ll be happy to see that,??? Ryan said. ???Do I expect him back? It???s probably 50-50. I think there???s an opportunity for him to get a head coaching job.???

So many question marks, so little useful information.

I can't see Schottenheimer and Sanchez back with the Jets next season.

One way to get rid of someone without taking responsibility for firing them is to talk them up and give them a good recommendation for another job.

"I think there's an opportunity for him to get a head coaching job." He went on to say, "After all, I got one".

Brian is like his father, over-rated. I don't like the Jets but if they don't do something to create a stable offensive that consistent, then they will have a lot of trouble making Rex's claims come true.

I know I know...it's FFB but....when you have Shonn Greene all year and it's more of a liability than asset it's not hard to understand that Shottsie wasted the best part of his offense this year.

That puts too much pressure on Mark Sanchez. Try mixing in a run now and again... furthermore Rex; try mixing in a salad once in awhile.

Too bad COMMODE-FACE ryan isn't the BOSS.... he doesn't make the final decision on who stays, who goes... JUST LIKE HIS FAT SELF....

The "Buddy Era" in NY is over. He is now officially a joke. His players must now realize he is all talk and no substance. His boasts and predictions are comical, Brandon Jacobs said what the entire league thinks post game last week. Ryan is a capable co-ordinator, but like Wade Phillips, Norv Turner and others have learned, it takes something extra to be a great head coach.

That's ironic. You'd think if there was anyone in the league who understands the concept of "something extra" it would be Rex.

I disagree. Look what's happened with the Jets the previous two years. Hell, I would even take him in Indy over the statue we have at head coach.

Next year is the key. It may show that Rex peaked last year.

Better make sure your own job is secure, before discussing your staff, Rex!

All the best in 2012, FN posters!
