07:32 AM ET 12.23 | After the Jets took care of the Browns on Sunday, Rex Ryan joined his players in a MetLife Stadium victory lap. It was a joyous celebration, one the coach with his Jet future in doubt had to enjoy. But according to a team source, Ryan was downright angry during a team meeting Saturday night because he had heard rumors the Jets may have already reached out to potential candidates to replace him. In that meeting, the source said Ryan was riled up, and discussed his job status with the team. The source said part of bringing up his tenuous status was meant to be motivational. ... After his trot around the field, Ryan was asked if he thought it might be his last time coaching the Jets in the Swamp. "No," said Ryan, whose fragile job status remains the last bit of mystery in this Jets season.

But he provides such great fodder, it would be a shame to see him go.

I think we need a coach who will actually develop offensive players.....
He clearly doesn't care to involve himself on that end

If he stays, cause they forced a took that wasn't ready on him? Fine
If he is fired? Fine.....but bring in a coach that gets offense

"Ryan pleaded with Jets to save his job"

Adds a new meaning to the phrase "plea bargain."

With that being said.. He just fired himself.

SHE HAS GOT TO GO-------------->

the patriots don't wanna see him go.....!

Until you right the ship at both the Head Coach and QB positions, this franchise is going in an unknown direction. What if you bring in a coach who doesn't believe in Geno?

I'm not sure that Rex does either. I think he'd rather rehabilitate Sanchez to be the starting QB, if he had his druthers.

How about letting keep doing what he has been (d-coord) and hiring a real nfl coach.
I will miss the comedy/tragedy though. It has been a great few years as Pats fan watching this buffoon.
His wife in a dirty sanchez shirt totooed on is arm! Come on, that's precious.

I'd love him as a DC in Minny.

Keep Rex, these threads won't be the same without him.

December 23, 2013  09:03 AM ET

Hope he doesn't start crying!

Jury is still out on the new GM... guess we will find out if he gets it (and brings in players that support it).
