The Jets are TANKING the season to get a Top-10 pick. Not intentionally but I think even Rex sees the writing on the wall, so to speak, regarding Mark so he's going to let him continue to "be Mark Sanchez" and then go draft a Pass-Rusher in the 2013 draft, bring back Mark again and hope he craps the bed once more so the Jets get ANOTHER Top-10 pick in the 2014 draft where they can FINALLY get a Real Franchise QB.
I never though I would say this but he needs to go. I finally came to the realization that he has absolutely NO CLUE what to do on offense. He is a defense coordinator not a head coach.
Rex should just face it that this season is OVER. Why still put in Sanchez out there when everyone know he is not the answer for this franchise. If every other coach in the NFL was in the jets situation, they would say "I would evaluate the QB situation". Heck even Andy Reid said that about Michael Vick. But Not Rex, he is too stubborn for that. Why not test how this kid McElroy can do with the 1st team? His stubbornness is killing me. He will live and die with mark Sanchez.
Then Sanchez goes off to say "he is too confident" to think about losing his job. ARE YOU F' KIDDING ME? Both Rex and Sanchez are just DELUSIONAL. Sanchez thinks he is WAY better than he is because he is babied by Rex. And then Rex thinks he still got the 2009/10 team out there.
We need to clean house. We need people who have a clue how to run a NFL franchise out there. Fire everyone, The OC, the DC, the head coach, the GM. Start fresh.
Here it is: Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition in which people have an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme preoccupation with themselves.
Rex is a great D coordinator and paired with the right OC he can be an effective head coach. I think Sparano's playcalling was bad and Sanchez lacks the s.o.b. mentality you need when the chips are down. He has the physical tools - that pass to Kerley was a thing of beauty. Right now he's in a bad space mentally but the alternatives: Tebow and McElroy aren't much better.
OC was bad, OL was crap. But better playcalling and more awareness by Mark would've won the game. I also can't understand this 2 qb system - they can't get into a proper rhytmn when they get thrown in yanked out withou settling properly, you burn a timeout, waste more time then another 3 and out. WTH were they doing in the bye week when this is till a recurring problem???
it's official, Rex is a moron. I just heard on espn radio, the press conference when he is answering playoff questions saying "is a 2% chance but we still going to go after it, no doubt about it". You know you got an idiot of a HC coach when your record is 3-6 and he is answering playoff questions.

Sure was. Didn't hurt that the defender fell down.
But let's stick to the facts: Mark Sanchez sucks. Say what you will about Tebow, but don't deny these facts:
1) Tebow's 3 n'outs burn more clock than Sanchez's.
2) Tebow starting will cut down on inexcusable turnovers.
Speaking of inexcusable, it's inexcusable that we have this level of QB play this late in the season (as in "too late") to make a real change.
All I wanted in the beginning of the season was to win games. As it turns out, Sanchez has hallmark contributions to Jet losses: defensive linemen successfully defending Sanchez passes, turnovers when not protecting the ball when getting sacked, red zone interceptions, pick 6s.
Sanchez is a disaster and he is worse than his stats.
While Rex is a player's coach and always goes to bat for his guys when they don't play well and always talking his guys up at the pressers during the week, his love for his guys will cost him his job. Week after week after a brutal game by Sanchez he comes up to the podium at the post game presser and says "we're sticking with Mark" over and over again. At some point for the benefit of the team, you have to bench the guy if he isn't doing well. Whether you put in Tebow or McElroy, I don't care but for the benefit of the offense and the entire team, you have to make a decision to change it up. I understand Mark was Rex's draft pick and he loves him but if the guy is not producing and causing costly turnovers by staring down receivers, forcing the ball into coverage, and throwing the ball to the other team while you're going down for a sack, something needs to be change.
If Rex keeps being loyal to a fault, it will cost him his job. If not this year, then next year for sure.
At the beginning of the year, even if this team was 7-9/6-10 at the end of the year, I still saw Rex getting another year. But by not making a change at the QB position and sticking with a guy who has regressed mightily over the last 2 years while costing your team games by having an anemic offense and leaving the defense out for most of the game, you're not just hurting the team, you're hurting your job status.
