It's pretty safe to say every coach is involved in personnel decisions don't you think.
Coach goes to GM/FO and says he'd like another CB or or faster S or whatever. They all discuss and decide how to move forward. Or GM comes to coach and says player X is available any thoughts on picking him up
GM has final day.
It's up to the HC and his staff to coach, teach (coach up), discipline and put the players in position to succeed.
It's clearly obvious the discipline, organization and coaching up of the Jets has deteriorated under Rex.
As for Francesa. I heard him the other day say he's not as clued in on the Jets inner workings as years past.
I understand that the GM has the final say and coaches, no matter who, have input. However, Fatcessa's point was that Rex has had A LOT of influence/say in personnel decisions.
This appears to be a big problem. I'm of the opinion that the problem with the team is the talent. What coach could take this roster to the playoffs? But yes, Rex deserves a lot of the blame if a lot of these players are his guys.
