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.
“You’ve got to have a backbone, because guys are saying, ‘F–k you!’ and ‘I want to kill you!’ It’s crazy, but I’ve been getting death threats from them since my first holdout (in 2010). It’s just bitter Jets fans.”
No lead had been safe for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So it was up to the defense to help them get their first win of the season.

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.

The New York Jets have re-signed wide receiver Ben Obomanu as insurance for the injured Jeremy Kerley.
A video is making the rounds of a football fan being a football fan. Except this particular Jets diehard is in elementary school — he’s just 7 years old, according to the clip posted to YouTube.
Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley went through a third concussion test and was held out of the team’s walkthrough as a precaution
The Jets only have a handful of days to prepare for New England, but Muhammad Wilkerson says that’s enough, especially with head coach Rex Ryan back in the fold defensively.

“I’m never going to panic,” Smith said after beating Tampa Bay. “I’m never in panic mode. It’s a game. It’s something that I’ve been playing my entire life.”
