Lets go and cheer our team on lets get a home playoff game and win it all and if not have fun and enjoy the game and fresh air thanks

    He has to run the organization like a meritocracy.

    Rex would be great on Obama's staff

    Sanchez was HAND PICKED by Rex. Remember..Went to see him work out in Cali and said."This is my guy"..Coughlin has 2 Super Bowl rings..Don't compare..The Jets could easily go 5 and 11 which puts him under .500. Look, this is going the wrong way and the Jets organzation better figure it out fast..But lets wait till after the election..Woody has his priorities.

    That's right Coughlin is in his 17th year as a HC and Rex his 4th..

They start well as they did in Pittsburgh and they could have been within a few points against the 49ers at the half too. Now Rex says they were tired. NO SH%#!! They are all out of shape period!!! Bad Coaching period!!!!!
    100% agreed...and all of these hamstring and muscle pulls...all these type of injuries come from a lack of conditioning, its on Rex

    I absolutely agree that it's going in the wrong direction...and it's not easy losing the best defensive player in the NFL and probably our best weapon on offense. Sure, the Jets could easily go 5-11. But don't tell us not to compare coaches when what you did was....compare! lol

    You put some coaches up there and I just wanted to point out that, VERY similar to Rex Ryan, Tom Coughlin has had a slightly better than .500 regular season record and two major championship runs in the playoffs. The Jets took Sanchez at 5 (who knows, if Stafford was there he may have been the pick) and have had to ride that horse. But the Giants clearly have a better QB, as do many of the teams in the NFL who have won Super Bowls lately (Brady, Brees, Rodgers).

    The biggest disappointment is that we likely won't get a good assessment of ANYBODY this year with some of these injuries (other than Tannenbaum who has severely mismanaged the roster). If the Jets lose Revis and Holmes and still find a way to go 8-8 that will be akin to what Parcells did in losing Vinny Testaverde in 1999 and having little or no backup plan.

    Let's see what Rex can do with substandard personnel.

    No he has lost the team.
    I thought he lost them at the end of last season. Now I am certain of it. No doubts. Rex unfortunately must go.

    The same was said of Belichick after 5 seasons in Cleveland where he had a winning season once.

    Not that Rex is the next Belichick or anything.

    Rex still has my (tentative) support. Tannenbaum is the one who needs to go first.

    How about the CBA that limits the amount of conditioning the club can do??

Not just because they made it to two AFCCGs but more because we were strong on both sides of the ball, we attacked and we imposed our will on other teams. The Jets were PROACTIVE on offense (run it against opponents when they knew we were going to run it) and dictated things on defense (blitzing, attacking). Rex's teams were better at the end of the season than at the beginning. The win in New England was probably the 3rd best victory in the history of the Jets franchise. Rex outcoached Belichick and dismantled and befuddled Tom Brady that day.

    So what happened? Well, we clearly don't have the bullets in the gun (personnel) at two key places - offensive skill positions.....(goodbye Thomas Jones, goodbye LT, goodbye Braylon, no Cotchery, no Keller so far this season, etc.) and linebackers (they were old and slow LAST YEAR. They are back again this year).

    I'm not sure whether to blame Rex or not. He's clearly not doing a very good job but I can't imagine a guy falls off a cliff like that.

    Question - If we didn't have the Wayne Hunter problem and the downgrade at WR to Plaxico, would the Jets have been a 10 win team instead of an 8 win team last year?

    Would Rex be 3 for 3 as a HC going to the playoffs? I'm not sure but I think it's possible.

    The Jets were looking GREAT up until about halftime in Week 2 this year. The Jets had totally dominated Buffalo and then were winning in Pitt until Sanchez got hit in the head. The Jets have been trying to tread water ever since. Take Revis and Holmes away and I'm not sure that anyone will be able to be fairly assessed except for Tannenbaum's mismanagement.

    I'm not off the Rex bandwagon yet....athough I'm surrounded by a lot of empty seats. I reluctantly voted yes.
    +1

    Tony Pauline in the draft forum was mentioning that Rex needs to make tweaks to his HC style, but that the Jets would be making a mistake to give up on him. Apparently in league circles Tanny is viewed as the dunce and the big issue that is seen with Rex is that he is too buddy buddy with his players. To be frank I think Rex needs some guidance and structure, neither of which the Jets had upon his arrival. The FO structure here is not conducive to the growth of a rookie HC or QB. Clear out Tanny and get Polian in to mentor Rex. That would be my plan, and if Rex issues continue into the next year can him.

    As far as conditioning and our decline, Jason astutely pointed out nyjetscap.com that it might have something to do with the inability to have padded practices. Now obviously Rex needs to adapt to the new rules, but he asserted that in the past Rex could hold some hard practices to improve tackling and the run game. With the new rules he can't coach up the D in this way and makes game reps all the more important. Future drafts might benefit from players who already have the fundamentals completely down, b/c development has been hurt by the new CBA.

    So how the hell are the other teams getting in good shape and playing aggressive football for 60 minutes not 20-30 like the jets?

    I meant more on the missed tackles, but I think differences in talent level are more apparent now. In past years maybe Rex can coax pretty good play out of some scrubs. I think the players with talent on our team have been playing well on D. The young DL has been playing well sans the hiccup v. 49ers but that's what you get with younger players. Also it might mean giving more reps to the starters during practices in the preseason etc. because there is no time allotted for that during the season. That lack of talent falls squarely on Tanny who has mismanaged this roster completely.

    Which possible GM replacement is going to want to work with Rex?

    It doesn't take long for fans to turn on the HC.

    The same posters that call for Cowher are the same fans who would have called for his head in Pittsburgh before he had a chance to win the Super Bowl.

    Jet fans are truly the worst

    The guy comes in here with no HC experience and immediately takes us a good half from the SB...2 years in a row, last season we were on the same path and had a terrible end to the reg season and miss the playoffs by a game or 2.

    Move ahead to this offseason, instead of retooling with stars as in years past we sit back and do nothing. A few injuries and even at 2-2 we are considerred by TFAGs (typical football analyst guy for people who didnt listen to Max Kellerman) and bandwagon fans the worst team in the league.

    FIRE HIM!


    My problem with Rex is that he doesn't seem to be that good at evaluating collegiate talent. Tannenbaum seems to be asleep at the wheel though. The problem seems to be more of a personnel issue than schematics.

    Also I think we win Monday!

    10 years ago I think Rex would have been a great coach. One of the best. The problem is the game has passed his philosophy by. Defense does not win championships anymore. You need offense. A damn good offense. You need to be able to score 30 points on a regular basis and have a decent, not great defense. The money and draft need to be focused more on the offense and especially the QB. Look at San Fran, outstanding defense. Ridiculously good defense. But they are always going to be hamstrung by Alex Smith. Come playoff time the defense will need to be stellar enough to shut down the elite QB's to win games 23-17, 20-10, scores like that. We had to face Brady, Manning and Roethlisberger all in a row and we damn near did it, but the team wore down finally.

    When you look at Bill Belicheck today you realize how he morphed himself to fit the game. Remember he was the defensive genius in the league. Now he's much more offense oriented and the Pats are constantly trying to improve their offense first. It just is what it is, offense wins these days.
