Tanny should have far more blame coming than Rex. The Jets roster is atrocious, and Tanny has a lot more to do with it then Rex does. You can only polish a turd so much.
Rex gets a lot of heat because he's a windbag and doesn't say the things fans want to hear, but to say he's the sole reason for the Jets woes is way off, in my opinion. Is he the greatest coach in the NFL? Far from it, he's proven he's plenty capable with a good roster though, and right now, we are far, far from a good roster.
No he's not, but he does need to go. His philosophy is outdated. It's not even his fault, the rules changed these last 2 years. Read Rex's book, his defense is predicated on hitting the QB and punishing the WR's. Two things you just can't do anymore. He has not adapted and therefore must go. But when you truly dig to the bottom of the festering wound that is the NY Jets and figure out what's wrong, it comes down to the players. the players are horrible. That lies directly at the feet of Mike Tannenbaum.
Yeah, but we never hit the QB! I think you fire Tannenbaum, hire a professional and let him pick his coach. If it's Rex so be it.
