"Rex Ryan has a month to find his lost team and resurrect the Jets' season..
If he does not and this season spirals into the kind of ignominious ending last year's did, it is hardly a reach to wonder if the futures for both Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum with the franchise might be in jeopardy..
Smart money — hopefully smart thinking by Jets owner Woody Johnson, who has a history of making some drastic knee-jerk decisions — is that Ryan remains with the Jets..
Ryan is a good coach with special qualities, beginning with his player relationships and as a motivator, and we should not forget he did lead the team to AFC title games in his first two years..
But under his watch, Ryan cannot let what transpired Sunday against the Dolphins — a 30-9 home loss in a game his team needed to win and yet looked lifeless and noncompetitive — become a habit or Johnson could become influenced by his angered fan base and become trigger-happy the way he did four years ago..
Ryan got this job because of Johnson's sudden decision to fire Eric Mangini after the Jets missed the playoffs in 2008 and his irate fan base wanted Mangini gone.".
