We do this poll every week. It usually fluctuates with the team's performance, but it is generally overwhelmingly positive. It is the Rex Ryan approval poll.

Looking at the job Rex has done in the first half leaves greater weaknesses than we usually see. The run defense has really struggled, ranking 26th in the league. The decision to go with Eric Smith starting over Brodney Pool at safety seems questionable. There have been frustrating undisciplined moments with too many penalties.

The one thing I will say for Rex is the team has shown the same resiliency it has in Ryan's first two years. He probably deserves some heat for the three game losing streak. Teams usually have rough stretches during the year, even successful ones. What frequently separates good teams from bad teams is the ability to bounce back from the bad moments. The way the Jets have responded is a credit to the way the coach has set the tone in the locker room to straighten things out and prevent panic.
