This is interesting, because many here have pointed out that the drafting and personnel decisions were much better under Mangini. To me, this means that either Mangini was the brains behind the operation, or that Tannenbaum is allowing Rex too much say in personnel decisions.
I think personnel is the problem with the team. Rex is a good coach. He's shown what he can do with a capable roster. But maybe he should stay the hell away from personnel decisions.
Personnel decisions have not been dreadful for the most part... but none of the players they have selected in the draft have improved here.
Player development is a glaring weakness with the Jets... and I don't know who's really to blame.
I'm sure the coach gets plenty of say as far as drafting goes. I'm sure Mangini had some say as well. As they should. Not the final decision, but they opinion def. matters.
Rex has shown that he has no grasp of offense... and it's questionable if he even has any interest in that side of the ball, which would explain the dramatic discrepency the draft strategy the past few years. They have pretty much neglected offense early in the draft.
