A great point. People don't realize how well respected and liked Rex is around the league.Even BB said as much at one of his pressers this year.It doesn'y mean Rex doesn't have his faults. He's got a big mouth, and needs to edit himself better, like a politician
I have a hard time believing that Rex even let an assistant propose such a thing to the GM. he got away from using the wildcat in the previous year and it was not even his idea, but David Lee's. When Lee left for college it went with him.
I am no savant by any means, but I never understood how how he was going to be used except in short yardage situations. Every time he enters the field the D also subs, For this reason only, I always assigned the blame to Woody. I can not believe that a NFL coach would think that such a thing would be effective.
Throw in Rex's comments about it being a gimmick and that was one of the reason's Smith was not re-signed.
I don't think Rex should be fired as I don't believe you want to straddle a new HC with a team with so many holes and no cap room. Rex benefited from all these contracts 3 and 4 years ago, let him live with the fallout now.
If we get a new GM I would be in favor of Rex getting a sit down to explain why he should be retained while others are let go.
If Rex can convince the new GM he deserves another opportunity to get it right then he stays. Woody needs to stay out of the matter and leave the decision in the hands of the new GM.
I was listening on the radio and people are questioning whether based on total W-L record that they can fire him. I don't think they can. My suggestion is the same as two before. Get a Gm in and have him sit down with Rex to see if they can come to something.
MT's kiss of death was extended Sanchez.. Terrible deal he gave him for no reason... He doubled down on his bad pick and he lost big.. He didnt do anything for WRs...
Passing over Braylon in offseason because they said hes more problem than solution.. but then go running after him after the season is hanging on a thread.. Stephen Hill was not a good pick.. Maybe he will be 1 day but it was obvious from the program he came from he was not going to be ready for NFL this year.. And we are a win now team that needed imediate ready NFL wideout..
Also dont understand why people blame Rex for bringing in Sparano.. I know HC pick their assistant but do they have the final say? no.. Especially that we know rex's huge strongsuit is D, O not so much.. You would think the GM, or whoever would assist Rex is picking Offense assistants, wht else are they doing?? Im glad Rex has the say on drafting D guys.. I wasnt sure about Mo or Coples.. But Mo has turned into great pick now, and Coples is starting to look good..
