Rex Ryan = Joe Walton = Bruce Coslet
This is a well- known scenario to any veteran Jets fan. A coach who had early success, no matter how tenuous, is given a long leash and fired only after he's tested a rich, dumb*ss owner's patience way past the breaking point of us fans, whether it's Hess or Woody.
Rex will be back next year even if the team ends up 4-12, short of him giving the finger to a camera during a game. After all, Walton got away with picking his nose on national TV for years. As Marx observed, history repeats itself as history and then farce. And, yes, that makes me a commie, especially when you throw in my opposition to the corporate socialism known as PSLs.
