Of course he should be fired but we don't have an owner who can make a qualified GM hire without the league stepping in. There is simply no point in firing Rex Ryan without a GM capable of assembling a staff with a plan to move the team forward.
Guys. Hear me out. Rex Ryan needs to be retained and in addition given a 3 year contract extension. Now is possibly the worst time to be firing your coach. Rex is a proven winner and has had only 1 losing season and has gotten us within 30 minutes of 2 SB appearances.
Look at the following coaches set to be fired next Monday
For sure or highly likely to be fired
1. Andy Reid - Eagles
2. Jim Scwartz- Lions
3. Ron Rivera - Panthers
4. Ken Whisenhut - Cardinals
5. Chan Gailey - Bills
6. Fritz Shurmur - Browns
7. Romeo Crenell - Chiefs
8. Dennis Allen - Raiders
Hot seat if DON'T make playoffs
1. Jason Garrett - Cowboys
2. Lovie Smith - Bears
3. Mike Mularkey - Bills
Rex cannot be fired. There may be a fire sale on coaches and we can do a lot worse than Rex Ryan. At the point if I am Woody Johnson, I am talking to Rex Ryan and talking 5 year extension. He is worth to much to this organization now.
Other than Andy Reid, who in their right mind would hire anybody on this list? These guys are LOSERS. I am not debating the merits of firing REX, but if you do, these are the type of people out there. Buyer be ware.
