You've got a guy blowing his own horn over and over again in a culture (NFL coaches) that normally is pretty low key and it gets attention. If the Jets perform, the medial loves it and Rex is a hero. The problem is that because of all the horn blowing, if you don't produce, the media loves it too because it's a story.
I'm not knocking Rex for his coaching and I'm not putting him down. I just know that in most lines of work, if you brag about yourself over and over again and end up fvcking up, you become the laughing stock of the job. I think most can relate to that.
Umm this was stated by many out here when Rex first ran his mouth. It is fine so long as you win!!!
Not so much when you lose!!!
