09:18 AM ET 11.11 | Jets coach Rex Ryan committed himself to being more involved with the offense this season. This week, he took that to a new level. Ryan, a lifetime defensive coach, drew up a few plays in front of the offense. "I had it drawn upside down for them, of course, but I did put a couple of plays in," Ryan said. "I'm more involved. I've been more involved with our offense than I ever have. I feel good about it." Ryan felt he was out of touch with his offense last season and was caught off guard when he learned of some of the chemistry issues on the unit after the year was over. He generally spends a day a week this year going to offensive meetings and spends more time than that talking things over with offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. Sparano said you can expect to see those plays in the game plan this week. Ryan is his boss, after all.

And Antonio Cromartie thinks they're going to the playoffs! :)

I thought Rex was great his first couple years, but I think all of that has worn off. I'm willing to bet he's revising the resume at the end of the season.

My grandfather was an airplane mechanic in the Air Force (I think it had a different name then) during World War II.

As a veteran and a Jets fan the only thing I'm looking forward to is the free dinner at Golden Corrall. As long as Rex doesnt beat me to it. It's been such a mess watching this team this year I'm praying he get his big mouth walking papers..

I'm concerned you are looking forward to a dinner at Golden Corral. It's OK to have standards.
