Rex Ryan, loyalty under fire

Three more for Rex Ryan, three more games until he’ll most likely have to wave the white flag as head coach of the New York Jets.

The Jets, 2-11, are coming off an overtime loss in Minnesota that provided more proof why it’s time once again for a change.

When asked if he’s made peace with the thought of the end being near, his response sounded much like the bravado of the old Rex Ryan (Cimini, Dec 8th).

“I’m not conceding anything, man … I’m not going anywhere. I know I’ve got three weeks, and here we come.”

As bad as it’s been for the Jets, Ryan’s loyalty to owner Woody Johnson has been admirable. It’s reasonable to conclude that Ryan will be among those receiving pink slips from Johnson after the season, however Ryan’s still quick to shoulder all of the blame for what’s gone wrong.

I’ll say this much for Ryan, he’s as loyal a coach as there is out there, that could go a long way in helping him with his future endeavors. That’s if it comes to that, as expected.
