Players Think Rex Ryan Should Stay as Jets Coach

Despite missing the playoffs for the third straight year, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan still enjoys the support of his players.

While Ryan's future with the team boils down to general manager John Idzik's decision, the locker room said he should stay as coach of the Jets.

"I'm 100 percent confident that if the GM and the owner allowed player feedback, then there'd be a lot of guys that would go to bat for him, and speak on his behalf," receiver David Nelson recently told the New York Post.

Rookie defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson echoed Nelson's sentiments, saying "we don't feel like Rex is leaving. We don't feel like he's going anywhere no time soon."

Earlier, Ryan expressed confidence that he will remain coach of the Jets, despite their record.

"I know I'm a good football coach," Ryan said Monday. "I believe in this team, I believe in this organization. I'm determined to bring a winner to this team, there's no question about it."

"I know and I believe I'm the right guy for it. Again, I'm not the guy making that decision. If I was, it'd be easy," he added.

In case the Jets part ways with Ryan, he will not be in the unemployment line for long because he's one of the league's top defensive minds.
