This leads into the "retaining Rex is a good thing" point.
If 2013 is a "free year" and there is a likely rebuilding mode, isn't it better to have Rex here than have a new HC who could be tainted with a bad initial season?
Think about it. The last 5 Jets HC had a winning season their first year with the team (Parcells, 9-7, Groh, 9-7, Herm, 10-6, Mangini, 10-6, and Rex, 9-7).
Do we want the new HC starting his tenure with a losing record because of a bad roster?
