The lunatics dont run the assylum so this means nothing. The players loved herm too.As the media already reported, and I'll repeat it for you, the players like Rex Ryan and wish that he would remain the HC.
Your quarterback does not need to be Top 10 material if his head coach has decided to win it unconventionally, be the '85 Bears and the run the '59 Packers offense.
If our head coach were trying to win it in the air, Mark Sanchez would have to go, or at least be given the proper set of tools.
Not like it hasn't been done before by another fed-up New York owner who was tired of looking like he was a horses ass. Went and found the best head coach in the league, ripped him away from a division rival, flipped the AFC East on its ear.
I say we go tamper in New England, offer Belichick a massive salary and a piece of the team in exchange for his services, watch the Patriots fall to pieces, watch us get rebuilt in two years under a man who knows how to win.
That's the move to make. Have some balls.
We know a lot about Rex, but the most damning thing against him is judgement. He thinks lousy players are great. He thinks posting a personal sortcore porn video is safe. He thinks the 2012 Jets are the most talented group he's ever coached including the '00 Ravens. Over and over again, terrible decisions, terrible coaching.
Tannenbaum hasn't just blown it this year, but the past 3 drafts were horrific.
The team that Rex inherited was more talented than the one he has today. In Year 4 you'd expect our Ray Lewis or our Terrell Suggs to have emerged. You'd expect that his grasp of the offense would have expanded. You'd expect that he'd realize he's neglected half the team for too long and it's killing us now.
No head coach should celebrate losing two Championship games. We didn't get rings or t-shirts for the accomplishment.
No RB's, No blocking TE's, One reach at guard - while letting the best O-line in the game deteriorate.
If the Jets actually built a Ground and Pound offense I wouldn't have an issues with Tanny, but they didn't...
G&P: Drafted Greene, McKnight, Powell, Connor, Ganaway (5 RB in 4 drafts) ... also traded for Tebow
Plenty of misses, but that doesn't mean the strategy isn't there ... and it's exactly what Rex wants.
And for the people who think Belichick sucks and it's "all Brady," try and figure out why the O-line is always mixing and matching and holding up. Try and figure out why scrubs like Julian Edelman are returning punts for touchdowns. Or why they rarely have horrible turnovers and bad special teams play. The Pats are +20 in turnover differential, the Bears with their celebrated aggressive defense, are next with +14. That's coaching. Brady accounts for a lot, but not everything.

He DESERVES another chance based on two consecutive AFC Championships. What are you missing in this? A HC gets extensions or extra years based on achievements. Things that they, themselves achieve. Rex Ryan ACHIEVED two consecutive AFC Championships. That gives him built up credit.
The soft porn thing is Rex Ryan's own personal business that you are holding against him. It is irrelevant to how good a HC he is. It has no bearing whatsoever on his future with the team. That's a lame attempt at attacking him.
2011 yielded Muhammad Wilkerson and Kenrick Ellis. Those are two players that I think will figure large in the future of this team. I've been a critic of Wilkerson, but recently, like in the last two games, he's been great IMO. That does not constitute a horrific draft. Less than inspiring? Maybe. Horrific? No way.
2010 I'll give you that was a horrible draft. Kyle Wilson is pretty much terrible and Vlad Ducasse is a complete BUST.
2009 You cannot possibly argue with taking Mark Sanchez. He was considered to be a blue chip prospect. Not to mention, the Jets had no viable options at QB. The fact that it didn't work out still doesn't take away from it being a good risk. Also, every QB that gets drafted is a crap shoot. You never know if he'll work out. So you just have to have faith in what your scouting department is telling you.
Dustin Keller is an important player to our offense. When Keller gets involved in the offense, the NYJ normally win.
So once again, saying Tanny's last 3 drafts were horrific si going overboard. In need of improvement? Of Course. But it isn't like we don't have any players left from those drafts.
And no one is celebrating losing two championship games. But it is farther than any HC in the history of the organization has done for us in a very short amount of time. It is at the very least deserving of Rex getting more opportunities to finish what he started.
When you achieve things like what Rex Ryan has achieved, it isn't as simple as one screw up and you are fired. After his success, it becomes a much more delicate matter.
Woody knows this. So do the players. Quitting on Rex too early could turn out to be a very dumb decision.
