You look at all 4 years and you see this:
If you took a high-school business class that tells you that we are a team that rose, peaked, and is now collapsing.
Here's all that matters when it comes to Rex Ryan's Coaching Record:
At the end of October 2011 we were on an 18-9 run with 5 wins against elite teams.
Since that game, the New York Jets are 9-15 including an unfathomable 1-11 record against teams that end the year with a winning record.
18-9 turns into 9-15. It's practically symmetrical. The moment of "good" going to the moment of "suck". And 1 measly win in 12 tries against winning teams? Rookie Andrew Luck had an off-day and that's our claim to fame?
It's not about this stupid idea "its our first losing season" or this other stupid idea "we need consistency at the HC position". It's all about how we are absolutely headed in the wrong direction and it's because the more Rex Ryan puts his "stamp" on the team the worse we get.
using that logic, how would you define herm and mangini's up and down tenures? seems like the jets were in the playoffs every other year during both. thats just one example that shows your logic is flawed. nfl is way too difficult to predict...
