Coaching hot seats

Last week, I had Greg Schiano, Ron Rivera and Rex Ryan as the NFL coaches with the hottest seats entering Week 5. We'll get back to Schiano and Rivera in a minute, but Ryan got a big win out of his New York Jets on the road against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football. That certainly took the edge off the pressure on Ryan. In fact, now at 3-2, the Jets could actually make some noise this season. How the Jets fare over the next month of games (Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, @ Cincinnati Bengals, New Orleans Saints) leading up to their Week 10 bye will play a large role in whether Ryan returns to the hot seat or has his Jets in playoff contention.
