    A little shocked Rex Ryan is staying after the way the season ended.

    Jason La Confora - "The Browns and Eagles will both pursue Chip Kelly aggressively. Eagles also high on Jay Gruden. Both like Bill O'Brien as well ..."

    Easy to blame Rex, but it's more on the front office and what he was given to work with.

    Jets lost Holmes, Revis and a few other main pieces for the season earlier on. Organization brought in Tebow, when he obviously didn't want to. He'd never publicly admit that though.

    Sporano was a terrible offensive play caller and the FO never got the right pieces in place to develop Sanchez. Rex Ryan has a ground and pound approach, which is winning football in the NFL, but you need the personnel to do that. Shonne Green wasn't the answer and the FO failed to address the RB issue for two straight years.

    With a banged up defense, Rex Ryan managed to keep the Jets in the top 10 on defense as well.

    Only thing I'd say Rex should be criticized on was how he handled the QB situation. He could've handled it a lot better. It didn't have to get to the point where it wasn't an option playing Tebow. Dude kept saying Sanchez was his guy so often and early that it wasn't even and option anymore to play him. It was like if he played Tebow, he would've lost the team.

    Ugly season for the Jets, but next year Ryan will be on a short leash.

    Couple of things the Jets need to address though.

    1. New Offensive Coordinator
    2. New QB
    3. RB that can actually produce a 1000+ yard season.
    4. Younger linebackers
    5. Pass Rusher
    6. Better Right Tackle
    7. Different approach to the game. Rex has to find a way to get that locker room together. Jets been having locker room issues for 2-3 seasons now.
