7 of 12

6. Rex Ryan, New York Jets

2012 Record: 6-7

Season High Point: A dominant 35-9 win over the Colts in Week 6.

Season Low Point: An embarrassing 49-19 loss to the Patriots on national television Thanksgiving night.

Outlook: Who knows anymore? A week after Greg McElroy relieved Mark Sanchez and led the Jets to a 7-6 victory over Arizona, the second-year quarterback out of Alabama was relegated to the bench and listed as inactive on Sunday in Jacksonville. Sure enough, Sanchez went out there and led the Jets to victory. Gang Green has been the punch line of countless jokes in New York this season (many by me), but through it all — the Jets are currently a game out of the AFC playoff picture. Woody Johnson has many decisions to make this offseason. What does he do with the team’s quarterback situation? What’s he do with GM Mike Tannenbaum? Does he trade highly-priced injured cornerback Darrelle Revis? Most paramount of all, what’s he do with Rex Ryan? One thing working in Ryan’s favor? The Jets have owned the New York City tabloid back pages all season long. Whether Woody Johnson would ever admit it or not, that’s considered a major plus within those walls in Florham Park, New Jersey.
