Callahan must be retained

It's unclear who the new Jets coach is going to be, but whoever it is, clearly needs to keep Bill Callahan as his offensive line boss. He did a brilliant job in 2008.

Several offensive linemen lobbied with the media on Monday for Callahan to be retained.

Against Miami, Jets left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson gave up no sacks and just one tackle to All-Pro linebacker Joey Porter who has been on fire.

If that doesn't point to the Callahan's significant talents, nothing will. Ferguson took a quantum leap under Callahan in 2008 and should have been the Pro Bowl starter at LT in the AFC instead of Buffalo's Jason Peters.
