If you watched the press confrence Rex is still standing next to the owner. Tanny's underling is going to get his job. Maybe Tannenbaum wasn't a bad GM. Maybe the 2008 and 2009 squads were pretty good?
In 2011 Tanny guaranteed Scott's 2012 salary, terrible move. Then before the 2012 season Tanny guaranteed Sanchez's 2013 salary, another terrible move. The Scott move handcuffed the Jets in the 2012 FA and now the Sanchez move will do the same in 2013. That is why Tanny got fired. I fully believe if he didn't guarantee Sanchez' salary for 2013 he would still be here with Rex for one more shot. But there was no coming back from that mistake.
