1/2 the team is FA at the end of the year and there will be little cap space for replacements.
Dbrick has regressed since signing his big contract.
Sanchez play has gone down the tubes and the staff is not doing anything to turn it around.
When a team that in 08 was #1 in november, Then goes to the playoffs two years in a row, then regresses to 8-8 and now appears to be a 6-10 team and you think the fans are over reacting.
Tanny's handling of the revis contract was horrendous. Extending him for two years (2) years before his contract was up with no option to retain him is a firing offense to begin with.
Revis contract should have been structured like Gronk's (best payer at position) 2 year extension that puts 8-10 mill in his pocket two years before FA, a 5X jump in salary those two years, then a 4 year extension at a salary
that made him the highest paid at the position at time of signing. and another 10 mill bonus. Instead Tannenbaum went for a contract wish the smallest 1st year cap hit that he could get.
Rex came in as the "good guy" HC to a veteran team, as in the case with all players coaches, once the goodwill wears off the players have nothing to respond to. For three years he actually ignored the offense by his own admission.
Rex I believe is a superior DC and is a fit as a HC on a veteran team that has some leadership within.
I think Rex has shown enough that he should not be let go after this season, but should stay on under a new GM. It is the right thing to do for him and the team as it will not be an attractive place to attract a top HC if the season progresses as many fear it will.
Can you just become a Jets fan? Lol good analysis, hoping we hold onto Rex and get a GM who causes him to fix some of his issues.
