Rex Ryan’s job reportedly safe for now

Good Morning, Broncos fans! There's been talk all week that Rex Ryan is coaching for his job.

According to Ian Rapoport, speaking on NFL GameDay Morning, that's not the case.

In an apparent attempt to quiet that chatter, the Jets are putting out word that owner Woody Johnson won't consider Rex's status until after the season.

Tanier: Jets’ problems go beyond time zone adjustments

NFL Week 6 Picks: Seahawks Triplets, Bengals Psychology, Terrible Kickers

Incomplete Passes in the Flat: Geno fails to account for the curvature of the earth when throwing toward the sideline.
...
Terrible Pass Defense: The Jets did not account for the San Andreas fault when assigning coverage techniques. Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd hit those plate tectonics just right and continentally drifted open.

More problems: Jets fans spend more time booing and heckling their own players than anything else, and crank up the noise when their offense goes for it on fourth down.

Silver: Peyton Manning wanted to run red-zone package for Colts in 2011

Jim Irsay revisits pivotal Peyton Manning-Andrew Luck decision
www.nfl.com

Some of the issues were provoked by Manning himself, who, according to sources familiar with the situation, persuaded some team officials to allow him to conduct unsanctioned workouts late in the season in an effort to push his way back onto the field. Before the Colts’ Week 16 game against the Texans, Manning, despite a severely weakened throwing arm, pushed to return to the field—but only in red-zone situations.

Given the many stories of just how weak his arm was, a Peyton package may have been a disaster. From there, one can imagine many scenarios preventing Manning from coming to Denver.

Thankfully, Jim Irsay did right by nixing Peyton's idea.

Is this Ronnie Hillman’s last big chance with the Broncos?

Good Morning, Broncos fans! It's hard to believe this is just Ronnie Hillman's third season in Denver, isn't it?

It almost feels like he's running out of chances with the Broncos, and that he really needs to take advantage of his current one, which figures to include his first career start.

Perhaps it's the preseason gaffes, or how much his four career fumbles (in only 179 touches) stand out in the mind.
