Blog Photo - Rex Ryan will return as Jets coachIt was considered a foregone conclusion going into the season that this would be Rex Ryan's final year as coach of the New York Jets. However, after a shocking 8-8 season given the talent involved, owner Woody Johnson has announced that Ryan will return as coach for 2014.

Preseason predictions had the Jets one of the worst teams in the league. While there are still some problems, most notably Geno Smith's lack of development in his rookie season, going 8-8 was remarkable and was a testament to Ryan's ability to coach.

The New York tabloids will have a field day and are probably already popping champagne. As a football decision, I have no idea if it's the right one. As someone who enjoys craziness in the staid world of the NFL, I love it.

With the availability of good coaches mostly non existant, Jets probably feel this is a good move. Also, as I have been told several times, the Jets have won against, NE, and some other teams I forget.
