The New York Jets held their long-awaited post-season press conference on Tuesday and it featured head coach Rex Ryan and team owner Woody Johnson.

The theme of the press conference for Ryan was focusing on finding an offensive coordinator that could mimic the attacking philosophy his defenses have become known for.

"I don't think I've done a good job of implementing who I am throughout this team," Ryan said. "I want a physical, aggressive, attack-style of football team. Offense, defense and all that . . . I don't think I've done a good enough job of getting that through to the entire football team. Certainly I think it's gotten through to defense and special teams. I don't think it necessarily got through offensively. That's what I want."

Ryan also revealed that defensive coordinator Mike Pettine would not be returning to the team. A new coordinator has already been hired, but the "ink's not dry," Ryan said.

One other interesting tidbit that both Ryan and Johnson confirmed is that Mark Sanchez's contract will not guarantee him the starting job andthere will be a wide open competition next year.
