The New York Jets finished off a surprising season with a win at Miami, eliminating the Dolphins from playing post season football. With that win, the Jets finish with an 8-8 record and second place in the AFC East.

Initial Reaction – That’s How You Finish: Jets Win…Rex Returns

Joe Caporoso with reaction to the New York Jets week 17 win and the announcment of Rex Ryan’s return

The New York Jets ended the season with an exclamation point today in Miami, knocking their division rival Dolphins out of the playoffs with an impressive 20-7 victory. Basically immediately after the game, Owner Woody Johnson announced that Rex Ryan will return as the Jets head coach in 2014. We haven’t received word about a contract extension but it is likely the Jets will add a year or two on to his deal. There are also rumblings that the defensive coaching staff could be shook up a little bit, so stay tuned for further information on that front.

Turn On The Jets 12 Pack, Week 17 Edition

Joe Caporoso with predictions for Jets/Dolphins and the final week of NFL action

Another year of 12 Packs is in the books, which means another season of covering the New York Jets is nearly in the books.
