So what do you think? In 2009, Rex Ryan inherited the 9-7 NYJets that failed to make the play-offs & turned them into a 9-7 team that backed into the play-offs. They went on a magical run that culminated with a close loss in the AFC Championship. They followed that up with an 11-5 season & another loss in the AFC Championship game. In 2009, Kubiak's fourth season with the Texans. Considered by some to have underachieved in the previous three seasons (6-10, 8-8, 8-8) finally managed a winning season (9-7), but no play-off appearance. 2010, the Texans field one of the worst pass defenses in the history of the league & finish the season 6-10. =================================== 2011, rumblings from inside the Jets locker room become public. They finish the season 8-8 Meanwhile the Texans finish with a franchise best 10-6 season despite missing many key players throughout the season (Foster, Schaub, & Andre played less than 50 snaps together or something like that)... They host a play-off game as winners of the AFC South, they win that game against the Bengals & lose in Baltimore due to a rookie QB, and sub-par special teams play. 2012, The Jets have got to win out just to finish 9-7. The Texans can lose the rest of the way & finish 10-6. The Texans have been favored to win almost every game this season & are generally considered the favorites to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. ===================================== If you were told that you could be the head coach of either of these teams, but you've got to win in 2013, winning will be defined as simply a winning season. Nothing about division champs, nothing about play-offs, all you have to do is have a winning season in 2013..... which team would you pick? Imagine you can name your price for a wining season & you're permanently banned from any NFL activity in the future if you're 8-8 or worse. Which HC/GM did a better job of building a team?
