Rex has to recognize that he needs help and guidance in managing the QB position and the offense. Hopefully this comes from his new GM...OC and QB coach, as well as any other outside consultant types, that are brought in on these matters.
If there's ever going to be a workable marriage for both Rex and the new GM... that goes beyond the 2013 season. It's going to depend on how open Rex is to learning from these others.
As I've said before...I have mixed feeling about Rex. But a big positive for me, is that I still feel Rex can beat Belichick and Brady's Pats. If he's given the talent...especially at QB, and with a more complementary offense.
IMO...no matter who is HC of the Jets in 2013...it's not likely the Jets are going to end up in the playoffs. And another 4-7 win season is a more realistic landing point. So W-L may not be what is going to persuade the new GM, on whether Rex should stay or go. It may be more on how Rex is coaching...handling the team and its problems. How hard the team is playing. How responsive Rex is to input from the GM and others. And of course...whether the GM and Rex share the same vision and course of action...moving forward from 2013.
Remember what Leon Hess said? Well here at Jets Paradise... fans reactions are like...
"I'm 18 years old and I want results now!"
