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 Giants’ chances of winning the NFC East would be slim if they lose, and seven losses might not be good enough to make the playoffs as a wild card.
“It’s absolutely not true,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Monday. “Both of those payers were injured. Connor never returned to the game. Cullen was in a position where he needed to regroup. That really wasn’t orchestrated at all.”
“I don’t think there’s anything to it,” Manning said of his 4-0 record at AT&T Stadium, which allegedly included the Giants quarterback scribbling his name, the score, the date and the words “First Win in the New Stadium” in the visitors locker room.

The NFL season has not even reached the halfway point, but the fire under the seat of 10 head coaches is already quite hot.

Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes and the New York Giants won an all-or-nothing game to claim the final spot in the NFL playoffs, beating the Dallas Cowboys 31-14 on Sunday night.
All that time off watching from the sideline last season, all those offseason practices he led, even getting married — none of it could shake Tony Romo from his habit of reckless gambles that turn into costly late-game mistakes.
Rex Ryan raised his arms and yelled as loud as he could. Then he shouted some more and smiled on the Jets sideline. This one was for New York.
