    If woody does a complete house cleaning and offers gm candidates an absolute clean slate then I am all in and pumped. But if the firings commence and tannenbaum is spared then we will continue to be a joke.

    woody obviously reads what's written about his team and i think he's finally getting the message. the thrust of negativity about the team has been the retro offensive strategy in a league dominated by good qbs and offensive weapons. given this, i think it's a great sign that tebow is gone and sparano is next. if the offensive talent and philosophy is the worst thing on the team, those two guys have to go. then you have sanchez and the guy who drafted him. well, if there's any good news it's that sanchez has at most 1 more year there. i don't think tanny does the drafting even if he remains.

    Why? He sucks!!! Maybe Rex doesn't deserve the chance to fire him, but, if Rex is coming back regardless, let's at least get rid of Sparano and try to bring in a human being at offensive coordinator. Maybe keeping Rex is the wrong thing to do (although I'll be happy to see him get one more chance), but one thing's for sure, two wrongs don't make a right!

    Please fire Sparano!!!!!!

    gonna be a really interesting offseason

    Tanny is toast

    Rex may be too


    I think (after teblow first, off course) Tanny gets his walking papers and Sparano too

    Then we hire a new GM within 17 days and his first decision is to determine whether rex will agree to be JUST the head coach and not be lobbying for guys like Conner or getting otherwise involved in GM and draft duties. Of course that is only if new GM X wants to consider keeping Rex around in the first place

    If Rex stays, the new GM will consult with him as to which assistants and coordinators stay or go. Sparano, Pettine, Westhoff, Sutton, Cavanaugh and the other offensive assistants are clear choices to depart

    I think Thurman and Dunbar should be re-signed on the defensive staff

    If the new GM X doesn't want Rex to stay, then he hires a new HC and he and that HC get to decide who the new coaching staff will be

    just didn't think sparano would go before the others. thought it would be done at the same time.

    I guess Sporano doesn't want to put in the work for the final game when he's getting fired in a week..

    Well, everybody is talked about - Pettine, Tanny, Sparano - but not Rex. If they would just leak that he would be fired then all the others would be clear to go. So, in my hope that Rex stays, I think he is safe for atleast another year...

    Then we will forestall the inevitable and suck for another year behind Rex' cartoonishly inept leadership.

    Rex supporters: Please let the Rex as HC myth go. The luck has run out, and he can't succeed with his limited HC skill set.

    I agree a HC who fantasizes about winning 7-6 games. Bottom line I like Rex but unless he gives carte blanche to his OC he should be fired. Ground and pound doesn't work in today's air NFL.

    I want a Jerry Jones-type owner that actually loves football, then let the $hit roll down hill.

    The only way you're going to get a bonafide candidate for OC and DC and ST coach to come here if Rex is staying is to 1. Give him an extension (which is only money to Woody, so it may happen if Woody thinks he is the right coach) and 2. then either keep Mike T or find a GM that doesn't mind Rex as coach.

    #2 is why I think Woody will totally clean house here...keeping Rex, while he might want to, makes it too hard to replace everyone else.

    I think the new GM will figure out what to do with Rex(assuming he is still in play) and a new staff. I dunno as the Pettine contract thing doesn't add up with these speculations...

    pettine and rex are good friends on and off the field ive seen them out on numerous occasions. something just doesnt add up here. rex isnt the same smash mouth coach the jets hired a few years ago. theres something up.

    i think woody told him if we dont make the playoffs you are fired.
