Here are examples:
He won 6 games this season with the worst QB (it was not even close) in the entire NFL.
Rex got the Jets to two AFCCG's with a QB in the bottom 16 (and that's being generous) of the entire NFL.
Bad HC's do not out-smart and out-prepare BB and Brady. And Rex did. Rex's coaching and game-planning is the sole reason the Jets beat a more talented Patriot team in the playoffs.
The Jets were 9-1/2 point dogs. They were coming off a narrow playoff defeat of Indianapolis. They had the league's fourth-ranked rushing attack and a top-five defense that forced turnovers, produced sacks and kept opponents close. They also had a club that was hammered five weeks earlier in Foxborough, 45-3.
Now fast forward to Sunday. Houston has Arian Foster and the league's eighth-ranked running game. It has a reliable defense that forces turnovers, produces sacks and keeps opponents close. And, like New York two years before them, the Texans got smoked in Foxborough.
But the Jets pulled the upset, and pay attention, Houston.
They won with defense, flummoxing Brady by rushing three or four, blanketing his receivers and forcing him into atypical misfires and mistakes. In fact, Brady was so rattled he was outplayed by Mark Sanchez, who threw three touchdown passes and led the Jets to their second straight conference championship game.
"You work all week on one thing," a disappointed Wes Welker said afterward, "and then you get something different."
Huh? According to the Patriots' wide receiver, New England expected the Jets to do what they'd done before, which is play man-to-man coverage. Instead, they mixed their defenses, disguised coverages and threw in a lot of zone packages. Result: They confused Brady and sacked him five times.
"I think we got him frustrated," said cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
