Supporting his arguement? i dont see how any way you could come up with that but if your on his team I do.. The question is why couldnt Mangini get his defense to be ranked any better than 16th? if Rex in his 1st year could make the same team #1? He was making the point Rex could only do that because they were "mangini's players" yet mangini had them ranked in the bottom half of the NFL. Which means Rex was the difference, not the players.
The Defense dropped a bit in 11,12. But ranked 5th and 8th overall is still pretty good. Especially when you have a qb who transformed his bad habits into being below average to bad last year, to the worst in the league this year. Im not going to waste my time looking it up but its a fact the D takes more series when the O is going 3 and out every other series, so ofcourse that gives opponents many more chances to rack up yards and points. Mark put the D in terrible field positions with his fumbles,butt or not, INTs, grossly off target throws on 3rd down. Losing 1 of the best defensive players in the NFL hurt a bit too..
Lol to the guy that said Mangini would have taken Jets farther.. He had his chances.. He didnt know how to run a defense, and didnt have the O doing great either.. We only won those playoff games because of D, not our wimp of a qb.. Rex does need help with the O, no arguement from me there. And has had two terrible OCs, and a terrible GM who could not form a winning fantasy team. Those who claim Rex isnt a well respected coach dont have a clue. Ask current and former players, Rex gets the most out of them.
Bottom line is you dont get anywhere in the NFL without a good qb. If you have a great D, you can get by with an average qb we all hoped mark would become.. He has regressed into the worst qb in the NFL. Even if we had the best defense in history it cant solve that problem. Its amazing we won 6 games with Mark Sanchez..
We removed the worst gm in the league who left us a big dump for next year.. If we remove the worst qb in the league, and replace them with just "average" we will be back in the playoffs with Rex. Hopefully we get a qb who is above average in a yr or 2 and can then can compete for superbowl.
