Rex's problem is that he is too loyal. He strikes as the kind of coach who will be really successful in his 2nd HC job. Sadly, that doesn't help the Jets a lot. Also, he never even had a decent backup QB (Clemens, Old Brunell, Tebow), whether you think that's on him, Tannenbaum, or both (My opinion) - that's part of the reason Sanchez has gotten so many opportunities to succeed.
I agree that good guy and terrible are two VERY different things. As a coach it's your JOB to play the players, higher the best coaches and bench players and fire coaches when it's time to do so.
If you're playing guys because of your loyalty your being selfish and not properly representing the organization and its fans.
