Mangini was no where near the x and o coach that Rex is but he was a very prepared coach that held people accountable. Seems like a hybrid between the two would be perfect. Not that he should coach again but Parcells was the type of coach that most closely resembles the hybrid of Mangini/.Ryan that can be successful consistently.
I just disagree with this idea that nobody is accountable... The team isn't very high on the penalty lists and that would indicate a real lack of accountability.
People try to complicate the reason why the team isn't good and it really comes down to the offense. It's the same reason Whisenhunt was fired in Arizona, Fisher was fired in Tenn, and the same reason why Reid was fired with the Eagles. All good coaches, the QB's aren't greats.
