Gang Green will watch the playoffs on television for the third straight year, but head coach Rex Ryan will return in 2014. And that’s a good thing.
Jets owner Woody Johnson made a good decision. That’s saying a lot for an organization that has made way too few of those over the years.
The Jets finish the season on a high note with a resounding victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Following the Jets’ 20-7 victory over the Miami Dolphins, Jets owner Woody Johnson announced that head coach Rex Ryan will return in 2014.
Rex Ryan and the Jets finished strong by defeating the Dolphins 20-7 and ended the 2013 season with an 8-8 record.
According to an NFL executive, the Jets will likely opt to bring back Rex Ryan. Neither general manager John Idzik nor owner Woody Johnson have commented on the head coach’s job security.
Rex Ryan won’t take satisfaction if the Jets eliminate the Dolphins. “If you’re not in it, it really doesn’t matter,” Ryan said. “The fact that you’re not in it is painful enough. You’re not going to derive pleasure from knocking someone out.”
If Rex Ryan knows what his future holds with the New York Jets, he’s not letting on. Ryan was loose and playful after the Jets’ final full practice Friday, appearing anything but a coach on the hot seat.

The Jets enter Sunday’s game relatively healthy. Will Gang Green be able to knock the Dolphins out of the playoff picture?
As far as Joe Klecko is concerned, it’s not really about whether Rex Ryan deserves to come back next season. It’s more a matter of the Jets deciding if they want to get with the 21st-century NFL.
