Rex Ryan is almost certainly in his final hours as the head coach of the New York Jets, but he is hardly alone. There are at least five NFL coaches who are on the firing line at the end of Week 17.
The Dolphins are playing for the first time in 11 days. They beat Cincinnati on a safety in overtime to stop a four-game skid about the same time the bullying scandal began brewing.
Revis says on Twitter that he’s happy enough making $16 million per year with the winless Buccaneers compared to the (winning) alternative.
Kyle Flood has the potential to be a better head coach at Rutgers than Greg Schiano ever was.
Former New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis took to Twitter on Tuesday to “clear the smoke” after a report suggested he was unhappy with Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano.
Jets fans — and sports radio listeners — know Revis can sometimes get ornery. So maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the cornerback is reportedly unhappy — already — with his situation in Tampa Bay.
“I moved on from those experiences I had,” Revis said. “I had a great six years there. Now I’ve just got to move on. I’ve got a new start ahead of me, with a new team and I’m excited to be a Buccaneer.”

So what’s the deal with Revis? Is he on the trading block or not?
It’s likely that 2013 will be a tough year for the Jets. That’s why they can’t afford to suffer their first true loss this weekend by speeding up a Revis deal.
Rutgers coach Kyle Flood filled a major need in the secondary and added depth at running back, the defensive line and quarterback Wednesday.
The eight teams left in the NFL playoffs can thank their special teams for a good part of their success. That’s one reason players are still upset that Commissioner Roger Goodell has floated the idea of abolishing kickoffs altogether.
Though a 20-17 loss to Louisville in the finale dashed the Scarlet Knights’ hopes for the program’s first BCS berth, the consolation prize of the Russell Athletic Bowl presents coach Kyle Flood and his players with an opportunity to add another accomplishment.
Not so elite? Half of the league’s 32 teams would make the playoffs if the system were to expand to 16 slots.
