The Head Coaches
There has been five former head coaches — Al Groh, Herman Edwards, Eric Mangini and Rex Ryan— and each experienced short term success but ultimately were fired for consecutive losing seasons.
Rex Ryan was the most successful of the five, leading the Jets to two AFC Championship games. A change of general manager, from Mike Tannenbaum to John Idzik, and a slew of personnel changes killed any momentum Ryan had created.
