[QUOTE=revischrist;4299345]Also what do you guys think he would say before a big game? You are all aware he could say he loves Schotty today and still fire him after the season? Its not like he is bound by twitter posts.[/QUOTE]
+1 Mangini and Tanny were buds and Mangini went after a 9-7 season..
i don't know what the jets will do. even fatcessa was spewing about how the jets really need to cut ties with schitty. the thing is what on earth should rex be saying before a potentially significant game? i guess he really needs to calm the waters and make it clear schitty will be back but on the other hand schitty is so bad the players may react favorably to schitty getting canned. who knows maybe they'll put up 30 on the news.
and of course if the jets win and the rest of the teams lose the jets will be in the playoffs and we'll have to tolerate the dope for another week or so.
With the hope that Rex Ryan and/or Woody Johnson reads this forum, I will write these few words. To have employed Brian Schottenheimer all these years, and now proclaim that you still want him as OC in 2012, I understand that you are both morons, morally bankrupt, and just another wrung in the ladder of Jet franchise failures.
You have one day after this season ends to jettison the idiotic, incompetent s hit box named Brian Scottenheimer, or--as I've said many times over--you will lose me as a supporter of your team. Something which I have done since 1965. I would rather not watch football, than endure another year of this mess.
What about change frightens the both of you? Do you not see what your OC has orchestrated? Are you happy with his "tutelage" of Mark Sanchez? No other OC candidate could possibly do a better job? Design more efficient offenses and game plans?
Rex, for you to have said these platitudes about Shoddy (sic) today shows me that you are a sell out dunce, who never had the f**king balls to hold your ground and bring in [I]your[/I] OC when you were first hired. How does Woody's dick taste? Maybe one day you will let us know why you sold out. But, I won't hold my breath. Nor, will I give a f**K, as I will be,sadly, "off the Jet bus" forever.
[QUOTE=NxYxJets;4299503]Lol! Pretty ridiculous, huh? Lets fire the guy who brought us to b2b afc championship games after his first difficult season.[/QUOTE]
Rex is the best thing that has happened to this franchise and Woody knows it.
Back to back AFC title games.[/B] What we need is a replacement for Hunter, a Wide Receiver that can separate from the defense & stretch the field, and perhaps another RB.
Did it cross anyone else's mind that Rex is ALMOST POSITIVE that Schotty will be getting a HC job somewhere? Rex is pretty connected throughout the coaching fraternity and I bet he, and Brian, know something that we all don't.....

It's probably 50-50 on that, because I think there's an opportunity for Brian to get a head coaching job this year.
[B]"I thought that the first two years but it wasn't to be[/B]. He certainly would be a qualified applicant as a head coach, that's for sure."
What if Schottenheimer is not offered a head coaching job?
[QUOTE=lovethejets;4299417]This relationship is what worries me the most, personally.
I think in some ways, it's sort of unfair to blame Rex for Schotty being around, and it continuing.
Rex wanted Hue Jackson as OC when he came here, not Schotty. Schotty isn't his guy. At all.
Likewise, Adam Schein, and a couple of others have pretty clearly hinted, said, or will confirm through DM on Twitter that Rex and Schotty? Don't see eye-to-eye... and aren't all that close in ways people would try to paint.
Allegedly, Schotty also has issues with Callahan, again, confirmed through some of the national media sources and others, if you strike up a conversation with them through Twitter, and begin to DM with them. As they don't want their names attached to certain disclosures publicly, thus won't tweet it outright. Allegedly, and apologies if this is incorrect, but per a notable NFLN guy... Schotty is part of the reason that Callahan hasn't extended. As he wants to see where the pieces fall with that, have maximum leverage, weigh options, and see if he wants to stay on, and what kind of capacity he'd be staying on in-- and if the offensive staff would be staying as is, etc.
Rex isn't who is keeping Schotty around, but until IF AND WHEN, Schotty is no longer the OC, Rex has to toe the party line and continue to throw his support behind him.
One) Because they WANT Schotty to get a job elsewhere. For multiple reasons. So disparaging and undermining doesn't aide in that cause, does it?
If he gets hired elsewhere:
A. They're no longer on the hook for his contract. B. The people with close personal ties to him and his father don't have to "fire" him. C. Everyone's happy.
Two) Schotty has lost/is losing some of the players. Multiple. Something the team tries to say isn't the case, repeatedly. Just imagine what happens, if Rex were to publicly acknowledge a crack in things where Schotty's concerned, further fueling an issue where Schotty's trying to hold on to the support of all the players.
Three) They've still got an important game to play. Schotty is still the OC. Rex can't say anything that might show a lack of confidence in Schotty. If the Jets make the playoffs, it's not just one more week of working/dealing with him... If the front office decides to go separate ways.
I don't know, I just don't think the Schotty issue is as small or as simple as might be assumed, and I don't think Rex has as much control in the situation as might be assumed. I think he's just trying to remain even keel, and status quo, for now, and, true to form, stay supportive publicly.[/QUOTE]
If what you post is even remotely true then the Jets as an Organization is a total joke.....
How in the world can the HC be held defacto hostage to one of his underlings!!!:eek:
