I remember a young up and coming OC who lost his play calling duties because the well Known Future HOF HC didn't like what was happening with his team offensively. Today, that former up and coming OC is 1 of the most respected HCs in the league with 1 of the highest scoring record setting offenses in pro football.
I said all that to say this. Brian Schottenheimer was never allowed to run the offense he prefers due to a myriad of reasons. When this man became OC of the Jets,Chad pennington was his QB coming back from off season surgery and the offense was special. Since that time, the only QB to spend any time working continuously under this Man was Mark Sanchez. Brett Favre came to the jets at the end of training camp just before the start of the regular season and Kellen Clemens was always the other guy who got reps when the starter needed rest. How can u develop a QB when everytime u give him more to do and he fails, you are forced by your HC to dummy down the offense.
I wish the Jets would fire that Fraud Rex Ryan and give the Job to schotty. Atleast if he fails, he will fail doing it his way. For all the talk about Rex Ryan's prowers as a DC, it shoild be pointed out that Donnie Henderson for the short time he was with the Jets had his miserable Defense playing at a higher level than Rex Ryan Jet defense . 1 thing i remember about Henderson's defense. It didn't give up points or very many points in the 2nd half of games, and or at the end of the 1st half.
By the way, didn't Henderson come from the Ravens.
