    So you're saying you can't wait for the Jets to fail?

    Right on observation.

    You overachieve to win 2 road games, as underdogs in each game to get to the AFCCG, but give him no credit for getting you there.

    Just blame him for losing games on the road as underdogs in each.

    This is the resume of the man you fire.

    If you are a moron you do.

    This speculation is only if the jets finish 8-8 or less, a winning season even 9-7 will keep the hounds at bay.

    Tanny wii have at least next year also. He knew that the quest for a championship by Acquiring FA and soon to FA was going to place the team in a bind cap wise and I believe that it was done at Woody's behest.

    I think Woody will need to wait to see how he pulls the team out of the cap mess next off season. He most certainly has his work cut out for him as 1/2 of the starters are FA next year. Rex will last at least 1 more year past Tanny as his record the 1st two years shields him.

    THE NEW YORK JETS OVERACHIEVED ON THEIR WAY TO 2 AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES!

    Year one under Rex we won 9 games with a rookie QB, losing our biggest offensive weapon for the season (Leon) and our arguably most dominant defender (Kris Jenkins) for the year as well. He coached a #1 D with NO passrusher, had top running attack lead by solid, but not spectacular, Thomas Jones and started out with Cotch as out top WR till trading for Braylon a month or so into the season. Then once we made the playoffs we went ON THE ROAD AS UNDERDOGS and still won back to back playoff games at Cinncy and SD before falling to the Peyton Manning lead Colts in the AFCCG.

    In Rex second year we won 11 games with a second year QB (who most call the sophomore slump season), a Defense that again lost Jenkins (granted he was not looked at as reliable player health wise by this time), our QB of the secondary in Jim Leonhard a month before playoff time, and also our RT in Woody prior to the playoffs as well. Our offense did improve personal wise with addition of Holmes and LT (and it showed) despite dropping Faneca and plugging in a 6th rounder as his replacement. We still had a top D without a passrusher, and were running thin on the DLine as well. We went ON THE ROAD AS UNDERDOGS AND BEAT TWO OF THE GREATEST QBs OF ALL TIME IN THEIR OWN BACK YARD........ALL WITH SANCHEZ PLAYING WITH A TORN UP THROWING SHOULDER, before eventually losing a very disappointing game in PITT (who were the favorites lead by a 2X SB winning QB and great D).

    Was it disappointing to lose back to back AFC Championship Games? F*CK YEAH IT WAS!

    Were the Jets favorites to win those games (or any playoff game they played for that matter)? F*CK NO THEY WERE NOT!

    Rex has overachieved and raised expectations through the roof, and Im glad he did. But don't for a second forget where we have come from or what he had to work with to get there in the first place.

    yes in 2008, when Brady got hurt, The Jets were #1 in the AFC before Farve got hurt and just beat the pats and the titans in back to back weeks (the titans were undefeated at 10-0, and the jets were on a 6 game winning streak)

    When did you become a fan of the jets, for crying out loud?

    the jets then lost 4 of 5 and the fins won thier last 5 and beat the pats with the best record of 11-5 on the 5th tie breaker. It was only the 2nd time in the history of the nfl that a team finished with 11 wins and did not make the playoffs.

    Go back into the archives and look

    just did, I could only find espn rankings, other places at the time has the jets #1 after beating the titans in nashiille and the pats in foxboro on back to back weeks. z.

    The New York Giants, who, like the Titans, are 10-1, move up one place to reassume the Power Rankings' summit. But the Titans fall only one rung to No. 2. The AFC East-leading Jets, who are 8-3, rank third. They vaulted three spots after their 34-13 rout of the Titans.

    needless to say all the jet fans thought so.

    Tannenbaum has had six years to build a winning Franchise. A franchise that should not be in a position where it needs to back into the playoffs with a 9-7 record and then overachieve once it gets into the post season. The only "complete morons" in this thread are the ones who want to have the benefit of the over achievement on one hand but without bothering ask the hard question about why it is after six years with this GM that we need to over achieve to begin with. After six years we should not be looking at a roster such as this one with holes all over the place.

    I will leave you to guess who those complete morons might be. And then maybe you might want to try counting them.

    P.S. In your case please feel free to take off your shoes if you need to count to a number larger than ten. Trust me it will not be revealing any information about you to anyone in this thread that they did not know already.

    Tannebaum gets two more years to turn this around and if we are not significantly better than we are today across the board then it is time for him to go after an 8 year trial run.

    1. The Giants get 'hot' in the postseason but manage to win Super Bowl's.

    2. The Jets get 'hot' in the postseason and only make it halfway to Lombardi.

    Very convenient to look at his postseason record and ignore his regular season record, isn't it?

    Look at Rex Ryan in the regular season and you're looking at Herman Edwards or Eric Mangini or Al Groh. Just another coach averaging a mediocre 9-7 record with a healthy starting QB under center, just another coach ekeing out a wildcard while the Patriots clean his clock.

    If Rex Ryan is The Man you think he is, then he'd figure out a way to get 12 or 13 wins out of a team that he's good enough to get to win a few playoff games. He isn't. The inverse of your theory is also very telling. If the team is good enough to beat the likes of the 14 win Patriots and 13 win Chargers on the road in the postseason then surely they'd be able to sweep the scrubs on the schedule unless their head coach was holding them back. A no-talent team isn't going to stuff Tom Brady and Peyton Manning on their homefields in January.

    Show me some areas of coaching improvement that Rex has demonstrated since his very first game in 2009. Clock management, coaches challenges, timeouts, offensive strategy, blitzes, average players that he's mentored into studs, gameplan's, halftime adjustments, locker room harmony. Go ahead. Show me. Ryan's a good postseason coach. That's great news if every sleeping regular season team, you know, made the playoffs.

    Because I have been posting on this site for ten years and during those ten years 1/2 of the time the jet fans thought the jets were better than the pats.

    I would have thought any jet fan would have remembered the few times that they actually were ranked as a superior team.

    Your post made is sound like the jets were a bad team under mangini, when they were not. They had a bad season when Chad was hurt but the other two years they were fine. including making the playoffs in 2006, 2 years before being the #1 ranked team in 2008.

    If Woody did not force Farve down Mangini throat, with the year that Chad had in 2008 the jets would have made the playoffs again.

    This thread is very premature, but I don't think it's out of the question that Rex and/or Tanny both go if we have a non-playoff season. Certainly, I'd say Tannenbaum's seat is hotter, but if the GM goes, then usually the coach is removed as well. Basically, I see the two as linked at the hip. Rex's resume so far is strong, but his brash personality gives him less of a margin for error than other coaches. If you aren't winning games, Rex becomes too much of a distraction with all his talk. Although I still think it would have to go very bad for either Rex or Tanny to be canned after this season. Probably 6-10 or worse. Both could probably survive a .500 season with no playoffs (with the understanding that 2013 then becomes playoffs or you're fired)
