I havent seen all the quotes, but it wouldnt surprise me to see Rex, once again, distance himself from the O while bloviating about the D as if he was still merely the Defensive coordinator, and not responsible for the whole team's effort.
Of course this is all made even more absurd in that no one except Rex and some homers here see an elite defense.
It's going to be interesting to see how Rex and the O are going to handle the next few weeks. It's 1 loss but a lot of the crap that submarined this team last year reared it's head again in the loss to Pitt. What you speak of, Rex basically ignoring the D's poor performance in the second half while pinning it on Mark are a large part of it. It's also worht noting what I've been seeing from some analysts on Twitter. Plenty of people from footballoutsiders and some other scouts/journalists have mentioned that Santiono's attitude was very obvious during the game. He half a$$ed plenty of routes and showed some defiance with the QB when going back to the huddle after a poor throw.
The Jets are going to have to do something about this guy and it may have to be of the Gruden/Keyshawn, Reid/TO variety (if economically possible).
