San Francisco and Seattle remain in the NFC with perhaps the two best defenses in the league, while the teams with what might be the two best quarterbacks of this generation are left in the AFC in Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos and Tom Brady's New England Patriots.
As for the Green & White, head coach Rex Ryan has signed an extension, although ST coordinator Ben Kotwica and LBs coach Brian VanGorder have each taken positions elsewhere.
"I've said all along, I'm glad to be a Jet," Rex said. "I'm happy to be a Jet. That's never changed. I know what we all want and we're striving to get there."
