    The Firing Hierarchy

    If/when the team continues to struggle, in what order will the firings or demotions go?

    I think it goes:

    1. Sanchez: Tebow isn't the long-term "answer" but neither is Sanchez. All other things being equal, a sub 50 completion percentage QB that can keep defenses honest with the threat of running is better than a sub 50 completion percentage QB who can't.

    2. Tanny: If Jets players aren't getting it done, and the "next man up" can't get it done, that's a talent issue and falls on the GM. Mix in a terrible Sanchez contract extension, and I think Tanny gets the axe before Rex.

    3. Rex. I don't see this happening this season, and genuinely think Rex will be back on a much shorter leash in 2013 regardless of whether or not the Jets win another game this season. That being said, I'm starting to feel more and more like Rex belongs in that awkward position somewhere in-between Defensive Coordinator and Head Coach.

    It has to happen at the end of this year or else we are completely screwed for more than 5 years to come. Just looking at Rex on the sidelines yesterday was all I had to see to tell me he is done as a HC.

    Did we ever get a reasonable explanation for as to why the Jets extended Sanchez's guarantee?

    Rex and Tanny are under contract for 2013 + Woody is a cheapskate = They will both be back for one more go-around.

    We never did. But clearly looking at everything that transpired I would say that it was 80% to give Sanchez a "vote of confidence" after the Tebow trade and 20% maneuvering for cap space in 2012.

    So will Mark. This thread is a non-starter.
