Jets coach Rex Ryan is the heavy favorite to be the first coach fired this season

How far have Rex Ryan and the New York Jets fallen? Wasn’t it only three seasons ago that the team made its second-consecutive AFC Championship game? Wasn't it only a handful of seasons ago that Mark Sanchez was supposed to be the next franchise quarterback? Well, those days are long gone, and after last season’s Tebow-circus the Jets are once again the laughingstock of the league.
 
Things have gotten so bad the oddsmakers believe that Rex Ryan will be the first coach to be fired. Actually, the oddsmakers believe he is a heavy favorite to be the first coach fired. Dennis Allen of the Raiders is a distant second and Leslie Frazier of the Vikings a very distant third. Here is a look at the odds for the first coach to be fire this season (odds come from sportsbook.com).
 
First coach fire odds:
 
Rex Ryan (Jets): -150
Dennis Allen (Raiders): +200
Leslie Frazier (Vikings): +800
Ron Rivera (Panthers): +1200
Mike Munchak (Titans): +1200
Jason Garrett (Cowboys) +1500
Jim Schwartz (Lions): +1500
Gus Bradley (Jaguars): +5000
