It's about talent not coaching, get a top ten QB and you have a shot at making it to the Super Bowl otherwise forget it ... all the coaching in the world will get you nowhere.
Don't look now but it looks like an ex-Jets coach might be favored in the NFC to make it to the Super Bowl ... our very own Pete Carroll. He might even be going up against that other ex HC of the NY Jets .. BB.
I think being a HC in the NFL is very tough, so relying on a rookie coach to beat experienced ones is an uphill climb.
Rex is a good defensive coach but he has A LOT to learn about being a HC. And it appears as though he doesn't think he needs to learn much if anything at all because he still does everything pretty much the same way he always has. For that, he should be fired.
Maybe someday he will grow and learn to embrace offense, but right now, for this team, he is not the right guy. And you can't kick yourself if he wins a SB 7 years from now.
