Buddy Ryan, who helped coach the New York Jets to a stunning upset victory in Super Bowl III and was later the architect of the Chicago Bears' championship "46 Defense," has died at age 82, according to reports.
Most of the people who follow the National Football League know how it works with Rex Ryan. He's going to talk no matter what. Win or loss, the Jet coach will have something to say. Coming off of a 45-19 beating at the hands of the then 5-8 Philadelphia Eagles hasn't discouraged the chatter. Heading into the Christmas Eve showdown with the cross town New York Giants, Rex isn't just talking a big g
The New York Jets have two games left in the 2011 season to avenge the disaster that occurred in Philadelphia on Sunday. It's not often that playoff caliber NFL teams lose 45-19 at the hands of a below .500 team.

Rex Ryan has been described in many different ways since taking over as Jet head coach after the 2008 season.

When the all-pro decided to take his services to Philadelphia, it was seen as a disappointment. Almost a full season in the books, it doesn't look like t
The New York Jets offense can get the job done on any given Sunday, but no one around the league would confuse them with the juggernauts in Green Bay, New Orleans and New England. Citing the need for more explosiveness, Rex Ryan wants to make the Wildcat formation a bigger part of the Jets attack in the coming weeks.
The New York Jets season has been inconsistent and maddening, but still could be destined for a final destination in the postseason for a third straight year. The biggest reason isn't a stout defense, great offense, or opportunistic special teams. Rex Ryan's team might crash the playoff party because of a very favorable schedule down the stretch.
