But we choose the guy the Ravens passed over for a Special Teams coach.
But hey, we had PSLs to sell.
As I said in the post right above the one you quoted, I get that it's fun for some of you to bash the jets under the guise of being a Jets fan, but let's keep it within reason...
Pedigree? Jack won a national championship. Rex's dad built the single greatest defense of all time, and carried it to a Super Bowl victory. He also helped our Jets defense stymie the explosive Baltimore Colts for our Super Bowl win.
Rex's brother helped changed modern day defense on the pats where he won a super bowl by coaching up 'no-named' linebackers to the point where Belichick initiated a period of 3-4 defenses which emphasize LBs over DL.
And Rex had his own success which was FAR and away more distinguished than Harbaugh.
