There's no question that the Jets have issues to address -- imo, not drafting any playmakers on offense to help Sanchez, Rex's failure to pay attention to the offensive side of the ball; and, as I said before the season began, bringing the Tebow sideshow to NY.
I just love how some are advocating cleaning house and bringing in individuals from organizations like the Texans, LMAO. Houston, despite high draft choices for most of their history, just bacame a playoff team. Just 2 seasons ago, Houston won 5/6 games and had the worst defense in the NFL. So much for that theory. I do agree that if Tanny is relieved from his duty as GM, look at organizations like Pitt, NYG, Baltimore or GB. Each of those respective, and respected, organizations do a very good job on draft day; probably are among the tops in the NFL.
Finally, the comments by some who say that this has been falling apart for years is just not true. Two seasons ago the Jets were 11-5 and in the AFCG for the second year in a row. Last year, the team was 8-5 before losing its final 3 games. That's the wheels coming off?
As a lifelong Jets fan, like most here, I think the Jets need stability at the top more than anything else. I am not opposed to a critical review and possible reassignment of Tanny's personnel responsibilities with a more proven talent evaluator. However, at this point, I think it is very shortsighted to get rid of Rex. Yes, Rex has to change some of his ways but there are other successful coaches who have been given time despite losing (Coughlin, Kubiak, McCarthy, Gruden, etc) seasons. Rex's resume in his first 2 3/4 years (and playoffs) should give him the benefit of the doubt. Rex has to adopt to today's NFL and begin to focus in on the offense. The first move he can make is to fire Sparano and bring in a credible offensive-minded coach. It was my hope last year that he would look south at NO coaching staff. The Sparano hire completely blind-sided me. While it could be argued that the move fits with Rex's philosopsy of ground-and-pound, it lacks creativity and is not today's NFL where the rules dictate you throw the ball downfield. Of course, maybe his philosophy is an acknowledgement that the Jets don't have the talent on offense to air it out.
Lastly, Woody. Please pay less attention to politics and more attention to your investment -- the product on the field. Us fans want to win. We enjoyed the rides back in 2009 and 2010. The past 12 months have been brutal. Get this fixed, asap.
