Keep Rex (it's a personnel, GM or other problem)
Bring back Mangini (we need discipline again)
Bring back Herm (we need Barbeques again)
Go get Bill Cowher (I need to see that scowl on his face at MetLife stadium)
Get a new veteran/retread (Bring in a former NFL HC other than Cowher)
Get a new rookie HC (bring in a newbie like Herm, Mangini and Rex were)
While I am reserved to think Shaw to the Jets wouldn't be possible, I would go with Todd Haley or Mike Nolan. Both were let go too early in their first HC jobs, and both teams were substantially worse when they left. Very hard nosed coaches that would instantly change the culture of our locker room.
As for the other coaches, O'brien isnt leaving Penn State and David Shaw isnt leaving Stanford. Harbaugh wanted to be an NFL Coach (turned down a lot of Michigan $$$).
If you want to poach a college coach, I think our best bet is Chip Kelly. Oregon has rumored sanctions coming and he flirted with the Bucs last year.
I've said before... again and again.
Curtis Johnson is what this team needs. If not as a HC, then as an OC.
Get ahead of the 8-ball for once in your life Jets.
No. This guy is a complete assh#le.I would go with Todd Haley
People actually want to keep Rex? Jeez...
Well, 4 years ago, he was only a year away from the game. And he probably would have named Rex our DC, imagine how awesome that could have been...
Regardless, if the person is motivated, the time off also allows for perspective. The game has changed so much in the past 5 years, and Billick has been analyzing it all. We could do a lot worse than hiring someone like him.
Sweet Sheezus! Marv Levy? Are we serious?
Second, when would you have liked to bench Mark? After last year? And who is he going to put in, Tebow? McElroy? No, Mark is still the best option out of the 3 of them but the future QB of this team lies elsewhere, so Rex is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't in terms of who he puts in at QB.
Why anyone would want Gruden or Cowher is beyond me. You guys think one of those two are likely to end the FACT that no coach has won a super bowl with multiple teams?
And are you willing to give Cowher 12 years to do it?
Even though I disagree with it, getting rid of Rex is fine unless you aren't trying to bring in a replacement that is going to attempt to conquer history. It's just not gonna happen. Especially with this team.
