Named as one of the most powerful people in sports under the age of 35, DeCosta has played a strong role in the drafting of Pro Bowl players like Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs, Jamal Lewis, Bart Scott, Le'Ron McClain, Haloti Ngata, Marshal Yanda, Ben Grubbs, and Ray Rice along with significant contributors Tony Weaver, Mark Clayton, Chester Taylor, Ed Hartwell, Dawan Landry, Jason Brown, Jared Gaither, Sam Koch, and Lardarius Webb.
Very impressive. Now compare this to the dregs drafted by the Jets over that timespan.
Rex knows defense ... we just need a better GM and a better OC. How this team has not upgraded a pass rush and gotten worse at OL, RB, & Receiver is beyond me. We've been begging for a pass rusher for the longest. At receiver I've watched the Falcons trade up for Julio Jones while we drafted Mo, the Bears get Brandon Marshall, NE get LLoyd, B More trade for Boldin and so on. Instead of trying to put deadly weapons around Sanchez to help him develop better they've gotten a guy fresh out of prison who hadn't played in 2 years, let go of their 1A receiver who Sanchez had the best chemistry with, not upgraded the O line one bit, and sign guys like Schillens, draft an unproven rookie who played in an option offense & got the ball thrown to him 3 times a game in college (needs time to develop), and depend on Shonn Greene as a #1 RB.
Then we have issues with the OC we go out and get a guy who last time he called plays as an OC he was a CO-OC (imagine that) .. and only called the running plays lol. I mean this just can't be written any worse. All this time we gave Sanchez more money and security and traded a pick for Tebow who we've been using as a FB and TE LMAO. I mean ... why not trade the pick for a guy who can actually help Sanchez on offense. Also we go youth youth youth with the D Line like this was the biggest issue with our team all the while we don't have no outside LB pass rushers and we have no youth at LB which was the real weakness in our team. I rather keep playing Vets at the D Line and improve the Linebacking core. Rex and Tanny might have ruined this franchise by Rex's D Line passion. We drafted 1st rounders who aren't playmakers ... I really don't get it. Coples can be something special but boy could we have gotten better value at LB, OLB edge rusher, RB or Receiver first round, TE, etc. Its a mess
I am for Bill Polian as our GM and Jimmy Johnson as our HC.
Lets do the timewarp again. Foget Polian. He is way too old to start a new project. Who wants a 70 year old GM starting his first year? Jimmy Johnson has not coached it seems like since the Reagan administration.

Back in the day Polian was one of the best. But the last 10 years he's pretty much just coasted. Manning alone kept that franchise viable. Once Manning went down the entire NFL saw how horrendous the Colts really were.
