Rex Ryan is a 50 year old, set in his ways head coach. He had 100% say in the roster that's assembled to support him. He had 100% say in the coaching staff that are assembled to go to war with him. He peaked with someone else's roster, steady decline in the years for which his "stamp" was put on the team.
It's easier to believe Mark can turn it around than Rex. And if we're wrong about Mark, well, we just plug another QB in there. But if we're wrong about Rex, ruins the franchise for years.
SAR youve made a good argument, but I still feel we need to bring some legit competition for Sanchez. If a guy like Matt Moore or Carson Palmer is brought in here he will need to beat them to prove that he can start.
