To be a jets fan you need to be a Kool-aid drinker.
At the same time, if the Jets blowup the entire organization every time they come off a 6-10 injury riddled season after some recent success then I'd also be disappointed.
The bottom line is the Jets are not standing still. The debate amongst fans isn't WHETHER the Jets should make changes, but WHAT changes are to be made. I'd submit that changing the GM, OC, DC, and potentially the QB is a sign that the Jets are not standing still.
Keep Tannenbaum. Fire Tannenbaum.
Keep Rex. Fire Rex.
Keep Sparano. Fire Sparano.
Keep Sanchez. Drop Sanchez.
We've debated the above ad nauseum and no matter what the Jets do, we'll continue to debate.
Just relax and wait for the 20 page thread crucifying the next GM or the next OC.
A good fan is someone who get mooned by the owner of the team he loves and accepts it as the sun coming up.
Beyond that, the owner and head coach simply do not come across as being honest and forthright to the public and fan base.
But there are many valid points being made explaining why and how this franchise is being run poorly. And a fan base that accepts bad leadership gets the team it deserves (that seems like a familiar theme from another forum ) I would be happy to debate them and did make a post in this thread that touched on some of them.
Mangini failed to stop this team from falling hard in 08, can blame farve but if he was hurt and obviously playing bad why not pull him? Rex has outcoached many of the top coaches in the playoffs, teams that were better than the Jets. For 2 years. Tammy Brady and the genius had a far superior team than the Jets in 2010, their offense was on a tear. Rex caught them both totally off guard with new coverages he designed just for them and we saw the result. tammy never looked so confused..
Rex has a lot of faults, hes a genius with the D but obviously needs help with O. He sure hasnt gotten it. Worst QB in the league, worst GM in the league, worst OC in the league- twice. I understand he had his hand in pciking sparano, atleast he admits that was a mistake. If we can get an "average" OC,qb,GM Jets will be back in the hunt
This is a guy who braged about picking the terminator and moving up to take Greene. He also was at the workout for Sanchez and was so in love with him he made him a permenant addition to his shoulder.
Tom Coughlin has *****ed BB twice now when it really counted while Rex's teams were getting their asses handed to them in the AFC finals.

L.T. wore out too. He was broken and retired.
They were replaced with an inferior talent in Greene.
The decline of the running game is not on the O-line. A talent, it should be reminded, most of us wanted to see alot more of at the time.
It's on the GM, on Rex, and the QB, since teams know we reply on the run since Sanchez is a failure at the pass.
D is still loaded, and still Top 5-10 material.a loaded D along with overpaying for Rex's guys from the Ravens and giving a stupid deal to David Harris one of Rex's boys. Not to mention Rex was so in love with Holmes he just had to have him at any cost and make him captain.
Mistakes both, but Rex is Rex, and he talks up anyone and everyone in Jets Green. Clearly, it bites him in the ass now.This is a guy who braged about picking the terminator and moving up to take Greene.
Defend the Jets when others make fun of them- even if you agree with what they're saying- right now is a perfect example- the Rex Ryan/Woody Johnson tandem is a target of humiliation but at the end of the day the Jets are my favorite team and I can't fathom rooting against them although it got tough this season with all the Teboneheads.
I come here to read and write about my favorite team. I want to read thought out, if not well thought out comments/observations, and not rants. To those that come here and say stuff like "just blow the whole thing up" IMHO you are bad fans. There is no joy in reading what you have to say. Now, if you want to say just blow the whole thing up and here's why, and go on to list specifics that if nothing else might be food for thought then I'm more than ok with you. If not, then you are a bad fan as far as I'm concerned because repeated mindless rants become mind numbing and detract from my enjoyment. For that I resent you.
