    Let's assume a rollout to the right side of the field from a slot-right formation.

    WR split wide right can run a fly, skinny post (can't run full post because that would be an across the field throw) or comeback.

    Slot receiver on the right can run an out or comeback.

    RB in backfield can either block or become safety valve in right flat.

    Even the worst defenses in the NFL will have a very easy time defending that type of play, and that's why rollouts are not effective in the NFL.

    And Favre early in his career was another one who could do that.

    I don't know that Cutler is a good fit in NY, I can see them having concerns with bringing him here. Either way, Cutler or Sanchez you are rolling the dice again. Cutler is another QB who likes to throw it up and see what happens.

And while he only benched Sanchez for a half, he still did it. that was a big step. he gets crucified on here, but I still think he deserves another year. NY is a tough place, ask Coughlin. the guy had 10-11 years of head coaching experience in the NFL before he "got it."
    Totally agree.

    Honestly I would like to see Rex around here for several more years.

    I was down on Rex earlier this season too, but I think Rex will learn from this season, improve as a HC and hopefully have Suckchez on a much shorter leash next year.

    The fact that the Jets have been slammed with injuries this season and that the team hasn't quit and is still trying to battle, tells me that the players still believe in Rex as a HC, otherwise they would have mailed it in by now.

    My question is will Rex learn from his mistakes?
    I think most of the frustration in Jetsland comes from Rex incessant need to tell us all how great these players are.
    While Tomlin is benching players who underperform in Pittsburgh, Rex sticks by his old guard & the only way they come off the field is through injury.

    While I hate the fact the only face of this franchise,(Namath), likes to constantly belittle the team, the one thing I agree with was his comment that if you keep telling your players how great they are they start to believe it.

    You just don't see this anywhere in the NFL except with Rex.
    It might turn out to be his fatal flaw.

    But, you have to give him his due. We live in a fishbowl as Jet fans but if you look at this team from the outside, our offense is so devoid of talent it's really unbelievable!
    I'm watching Pats vs Texans & you've got the Pats with Welker, Lloyd, Hernandez, Ridley, Vareen, Woodhead, even their backup TEs are better than what the Jets have!
    Then you look at the Texans, Foster, Daniels, Tate, Andre.

    I hope he realizes that we need a pass rusher & a few LBs, and it's time to start feeding the offense.
    With an offense in the 15 range the Jets could win 10 games as long as Rex is running the defense.
    Every team has holes, but the Jets have some nice pcs in place, unfortunately franchise QB is not one of them.
    In today's NFL that's a huge problem, but look at the records of some of the teams with much better QB play & weapons than the Jets have & they have losing records.
    Rex is working with a lot less than most teams, now is he to blame for that or is it Tanny?
    That is the question that Woody needs to ask himself.
    I guess we'll find out soon enough, but if Rex stays he has to start being a leader of this team, instead of a jester telling us what he thinks we want to hear.

    He's not fooling us anymore, he needs to grow up.
    TLDR.

    Why should he?

    His yammering has only one effect, it annoys Jets Fans. So what?

    If you think anyone plays harder against us because of the things Rex says, well, I;d say that is a naive position to take. Rex is not a ****-talker, he's a pro-Jets bloviator. Thats not bulliton board material, and any oppponent who claims it is, is just ****-talking themselves.

    I'd go the other way, that a supportibg coach who talks up his team publicly is a good thing. It also does not mean he doesn't dress them down priovately either, it should be pointed out.

    In short, if you don't like listening to Rex, don't listen to Rex. If you buy in to all his rah rah, you get exactly what you deserve.

    I think Rex is white noise at this point. He is what he is, he doesnt call out guys publicly, and goes out of his way to overly praise his players and staff when he gets the chance to.

    I always thought that Rex would say outloud about his team what other coaches THOUGHT about their own teams. And just b/c Rex said it out loud, he was labeled a blow hard. What are the other coaches then? Suck hards? lololol I just made that one up.

    Rex THIS offseason was talking about how he knows he's a great coach and how he's the best defensive mind in football, blah blah blah. How is that learning from his mistakes?

    I think Rex can be a good coach, just don't publicly announce that "this is the best team I've ever coached" before you play a game!
    If this team was loaded & Rex had young LBs that could tear guys heads off & a franchise QB with a bunch of weapons at his disposal & he wanted to CALL OUT other teams & coaches well be my guest.
    Just don't do it when you have Mark Sanchez throwing to Chaz Schillens & Bart Scott chasing down a RB that gains 3 yards on him with each stride.
    Makes you look foolish & like a complete & utter Doofus.
    He's got NOTHING to back up his bluster. He's the "Wizard of Oz" of the NFL.

    Rex took over a 9-7 team and went 9-7 and 10-5, 8-8 and probably 8-8 again, how do you compare the two again?
    Belichick went 6-10, 7-9, 7-9, 11-5, 5-11 then got fired. Went to Pats and went 5-11 in his first year and then won the Super Bowl the next. He must have just "got it" that year or was it the future HOF QB he got? My point is that a coach is nothing without a QB including Belichick. Lets be honest, if Ryan had a top 5 QB his first 2 years he would have had 2 Super Bowl rings and people would be calling him a genius. Sound familiar?

    Mark Brunell, Tony Boselli, Fred Taylor, Jimmy Smith, Keenan McCardell and that's just on offense. The Jaguars weren't limited on talent.

    Yea, he's a great HC.

    Many people expected Sanchez to be a good QB. You yourself even said so before the Jets drafted him.

    Rex's ability to coach a defense despite limited talent is what has kept the team competitive. All without a five year head start provided by electronic signals interception or jamming.

    Of course, I understand you're wanting to keep his ultimate masterpiece, going from a humiliating 45-3 defeat at NE to turning the tables on Belichick and humiliating him in the playoffs in a month. But hey, who said trolling had to be based on facts.

    I think he is learning. the Giants and Pats in the SB and watching this year has really mellowed him.

    I'd like to see one more year..... Give him a shot. he may actually take this POS team to 8 and 8.
