Yeah, SOJF, that is what YOU'VE become.
YOU wake the **** up!
I'm surprised Magnus forgot to put "trading Brett Ratliff" :rolleyes:
Not a controversy, but Rex saying Sparano was exactly like him and jumped at the chance to sign him as our OC.
Then, throwing Tanny under the bus claiming by it was our former GM and not he who decided to sign him.
Girls, no need to get all rustled. SHH NO MAD, ONLY FRIENDSHIP NOW.
I just don't like or agree with your opinion of late, but, that's just my opinion.
But make no mistake about it, I look forward to your posts, you're one of the best on here!!!! :yes:
Loyal to a fault
Stubborn to a fault
Short comings on building a quality coaching staff. (See Cavanaugh/Sporano)
We have seen a four year body of work and many feel that is enough to say, time to move on. These opinions carry all the same merit as yours. You want to disagree with it fine but to continue to constantly retort with disparaging remarks to posters is both childish and quite frankly tiring. Welcome to ignore !!!!
I'm not excusing the last two years, I'm not excusing the faults, although I disagree with half of your list. If anything player development, consider Rex and the coaching staff had minor league talent to work with for most of the year due to all the injuries, if the Jets even had average QB play, they'd be a playoff team, I think that is pretty much taking what the team has and developing that talent.
Offensive philosophy isn't all on Rex
All I've said is that Rex deserves a chance to try and recover from this past year, I've stated why, but you and others refuse to read it. So I applaud when others on the board say things I have said or believe in.
Not sure what is so hard to understand, or what your problem is.
Your a good poster, and have made some good points. Tanny was a parcells disciple,Sparano worked under Parcells. Its not unreasonable to believe it was tanny who wanted Sparano.After he was hired, whats Ryan supposed to say, he's an a..hole
When you see your team completely destroyed (dominated, annihilated, out coached, out prepared) at home against SF to then be followed by similar performances at home against Miami, NE and lay down against a West Coast team traveling East for a 1:00 game with a lame duck coach it's pretty obvious it's time for a new HC...JMO.
Here is the rub!!!
I for one am in favor of Rex getting fired. However, while I think that is the right way to go, it doesn't really matter. The Jets will decide how to move forward.
I see many posters calling for 2013 to be a do or die year for Rex. One poster even suggested that Gamble would hire the heir apparent as OC and if Rex fails he takes over in 2014... My concern with any of that is that it doesn't work!!!!
If the house was cleaned, the new GM would hire a new HC and that coach would get a 3 or 4 yr deal. Rex has 2 years left on his deal. The right business decision in our case is simple. Gamble has one of two choices:
1. Fire Rex and bring in a whole new coaching staff. This allows him to mold the team with players that compliment the new coach's vision and philosophy and demonstrates clearly that he has his man.
2. Extend Rex Ryan back out to three years. This shows in no uncertain way that Rex is his guy! They are in this together and they are committed to working together to get things turned around. It says to the fans that Rex is his man and the best guy for the job and leaves no question that Rex just staying for another year is a money decision by the owner.
Moving forward with Rex's contract as is would basically be the same as letting him coach out a lame duck year. FA are harder to sign because they don't like coaching changes and would be concerned that Rex could be let go in a year. Our draft (#9 pick I might add) would be geared towards trying to clean this mess up quickly and might have us pick players they would be no good for us should we go with a new coach with a new scheme ( see Vilma 4-3 vs. 3-4).
While i prefer we go in a new direction now, I can understand staying the course. However doing so is fraught with peril if you let Rex coach this year with no extension... Just my two cents...
