What record does Rex need to save his job in 2013?
If I'm Woody I want to see Rex to go 8-8 with this roster. Getting there would be enough to convince me that he deserves to stay on as this team rebuilds.
However I personally have a hard time thinking they will beat last year's total of six wins. Rex has basically publicly said that he has no good quarterbacks to work with. It's his new schtick in order to get another head coaching job after he gets fired next year. The Rex Ryan era is over and he's a lame duck waiting to be fired after this team goes 6-10 or worse.
Not only is Rex a lame duck but Sanchez is too. Rex has already said Sanchez will get the 1st snap in practice. Tannenbaum's extension of Sanchez was a critical mistake for this organization. When Sanchez is your best out of 4 medicore QBs then you're in serious trouble. Unfortunately it's a terrible draft year for QBs. If Nassib is on the board in the 2nd round maybe you take a shot with him.
Pretty much every fact of offense, defense, and even special teams with Westhoff gone, is in the process of overhaul. Maybe in 2 or 3 years we'll look back and say this was worth it to reload for another playoff run. But for now it just plain sucks after getting to the AFC Championship game twice and coming up short. The only 4 things that matter this year are the organization's decision with Revis, the draft, the head coach search next January, and the QB search.
