10:08 AM ET 10.26 | This wasn't supposed to work, this shotgun marriage between Rex Ryan and rookie general manager John Idzik. It is working. It is working so well that if Idzik were to walk into the team meeting Saturday night at the team hotel in Cincinnati and announce, "We have decided to offer Rex an extension," Jets players, almost to a man, would stand and cheer. This arrangement can work as long as Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg continue their effective working relationship -- "You got offense, I got defense." If the Jets win, Ryan won't have to hear the constant reminders he needs to be the coach of the whole team. A big key will be whether Mornhinweg can continue to nurture and mold Smith into a franchise quarterback.

If one win could save his job then beating NE last week should've done that already. I think the Jets need to have a winning season to save Rex's job. Just beating one or two good teams isn't enough.

I wonder when he's gonna open his big yap and predict a SB victory?

Probably when he gets that extension.

As a big time Rex Ryan critic, don't like to use the word hater, I must give Rexy some credit for managing to put a competitive team out there, I think he's doing his best job since they brought him in. Could it be, because he's only coaching and staying away from The GM and major decisions that he finally got the message and is drinking the corporate potion? Good for him if that's what he wants!!!

Yep. Most everyone had them last in the East going in.

No one saw this.

There are a lot more head coaches ahead of him on the " hot seat."

They may look back at Mark Sanchez's injury as the best thing that could have happened to the Jets.

It depends on how high the Jets set the bar. Will he have to have a better record than last year ( 6-10 ) , which is achievable with 4 wins already under their belt. Or did they set the bar at making the playoffs, in which case he is a goner.

I think Ryan will talk his way into a new contract.

Yup, I would have lost money betting against a 4-3 record at this stage.

I think it'll take a playoff win to save his job.

Removing that Mark Sanchez tatoo would help.

What will ultimately save Rex's job is that he can look the owners right in the eye and say; "hey, at least we aren't the Giants".

The Giants Season started last week, they had the longest Pre-season in NFL History, they Re now 1-0!

That 4-3 record would be 2-5 if not for two successful last second field goals, both of which came available because of officiating decisions. I'm not sure coaching gets much credit for those wins. Jets are still lame.
