Could Rex have learned from Buddy's mistakes w/QB controversy?
I'm absolutely puzzled about why Rex seems so bound and determined to stick with Sanchez, even though some sort of spark and/or change is needed at this point.
I wonder if he remembers, or his father recently reminded him, what got him fired in Arizona in 1994: a bitter QB controversy.
One footnote here - along with the three (!) QBs listed in the article, Buddy considered trying to lure P. Simms out of retirement, adding to the disorder at the QB position. All of this by early October.
I wonder if Rex has just decided that no matter what, he's not going out that way.

I just don't think Rex sees anything in our BUs to be honest. Why he doesn't bring in anther QB? I have no idea. The minute NE dropped Hoyer I thought yes finally we can get a viable BU. What happen? For the 1st time ever Tanny doesn't pick up a NE left over. Hopefully Pitts gets a QB back and cuts him or Batch. I'd take either right now.
Rex completely ignores offensive meetings(eg time outs). You cannot be a HC without participating in all aspects of the game. I love Rex, be he's a liability on O. The only controversy affecting Sanchez is his own deficiencies.
of the three qb's, sanchez does give the team the best chance to win each sunday although a case can be made for mcelroy. tebow can play but anyone see his passes? he makes bubby brister look good. mcelroy? he probably deserves a shot simply because sanchez just doesn't always make good decisions. doesn't matter who's arm is better if the ball goes to the wrong uniform.
Buddy Ryan SUCKED as a head coach. He had 3 decent years with the Eagles getting them to the playoffs 3 times. In all 3 times he was one and done. He sucked in AZ. Much like Rex, he was decent DC but knew squat about offense. Why any Jet fan would want Rex to emulate him is a mystery.
In this case, the apple didn't fall far from the tree.
=ESPNNewYork.com columnist Ian O’Connor was one of the first in town to call for Ryan’s ouster:
He wasn't born to be an NFL head coach any more than his father Buddy was born to be an NFL head coach, and nobody's taking any pleasure in making that claim… he admitted losing control of his team and locker room in 2011, and he no longer needs to make that admission in 2012. His Jets said it all for him when they spotted the Patriots 35 second-quarter points, allowed them to score 21 of those points in 52 unforgettable seconds, and all but put Rich Kotite's worst hours to shame.
