Herm, Mangini and rex all seemed to grow out of the position.
100% right. The Jets haven't been built since the two draft picks used to take Abraham and Ellis by Parcells.
This team hasn't legitimately been built in quite some time.
It would be a breath of air to stink next year, clear cap space maybe sign a marquee Wideout (Bowe?) and then slowly build the team back up through the draft done by somebody who is more NFL GM than CPA.
As for Rex, well, I think he's a top-tier defensive mind. Better than his brother, for sure (who has a ton of talent in Dallas but they can't stop crap.) But I don't think he's a real head coach.
He idolized his dad who, even in '85, was allergic to having anything to do with offense outside of trying to kill it during practice. He HATED Ditka.
No, this team needs a head coach and that head coach should definitely be swayed more towards offense than defense since, simply put, offense is more important. It is, you can't dispute it.
