Thread: Idzik is in Charge! Rex is Neutered!

  1. #1

    Idzik is in Charge! Rex is Neutered!

    I was worried that Rex would try to save his sorry self by convincing Idzik to plug some holes, sign some free agents, and put a team on the field that might go 8-8. Based on the early returns, Idzik is his own man and realizes that MAJOR rebuilding is the only way to get this team on the right track. While doing so, he has essentially established his turf, and perhaps sounded the beginning of the end for the Mouth. As a Jet fan, I am very happy about this. Go Idzik!

    It really is getting sad.

    Rex is a good coach. Too bad some fans can't see this.

    Rex is a fantastic coach. He is kinda crappy at being a head coach though. He needs to be a DC.

    9-7, 11-5 8-8 6-10.

    Poor at developing players and evaluating talent.

    I would say he is average.

    Before you throw the 2 AFC Champ games in the mix...remember, the Cardinals were in the SB.

    How is that being neutered? So Rex is going to coach the team, and Idzik is going to be the GM. There are very few coach/GMs out there, and it usually doesn't work well. I don't get why Rex takes the blame for all the poor personnel/contract decisions that have been made. Well I do understand why he gets the blame. It's because SOJFs love to hate everyone associated with their team. I just don't understand the reasoning behind it.

    The op is mostly correct.

    Rex is a fine coach. He's also a very poor judge of talent and his loyalty to certain players clouds his judgement. He has kept 'his guys' each of the last few years when they simply were no longer good enough to play. He loves guys that know his system and goes with them even if they can no longer run.

    I think Rex will coach better and we will get some over achieving results if he stays out of the picture moreso in the make up of the team and coaches the guys he is provided.

    This is with the worst QB in the league. Our LBers were okay in 2009, and steadily declined with age. So with a terrible QB, and okay LBers we were a 2nd tier contender. With good LBers, and a good QB Rex is a great coach. He is a coach though. Not a GM. Coaches that are great at everything do not exist. If you want one that's okay at everything you'll have an average team. We have one that's great at some things, and we need to augment that with talent evaluators, and a disciplinarian GM...Oh and an edge rusher, and a QB.

    Don't forget that he is still learning on the job.

    REX and his ego had quite a bit involvement here. He is a good football mind, terrible evaluator of talent.

    He, IMO, guioded a lot of the personnel decisions that put us here.

    Allowing mark to go to his sons football games is an example of REX and his management style.

    Lets see exactly how good Rex is this year. Its easy to brag about how good of a defensive coach you are when you have 7 first round picks starting on defense. If Rex is actually the defensive guru he proclaims to be, we will see it this year, if not he is gone.

    Just stop. We all know he's one of the best defensive coaches out there.

    It's the offense he needs to build and get to the top if he wants the Jets to go anywhere, and continue to be the Jets HC.

    We will see just how good he is. Its easy to have a good defense when it is flush with first round draft picks.

    So his evaluations of Wilkerson and Coples are terrible? By all accounts those are HIS guys and people are saying that Wilkerson was a pro bowl snub. Coples started coming on in a big way in the 2nd half of the season and definitely looks to be the player that people thought he'd be when he was dominating in college.

    Please. If you are naive enough that he wasn't all in for Sanchez, then I can sell you some swamp land in Texas.

    2 picks in 4 years is not much of a defense of the man.

    I think there are posters here that could do better.

    His total lack of caring about the O and the entire team is reflected in our current personnel situation.

    Yes, just like the Iggles did last year: 4-12

    Very easy.

    He was all in by default. There was no other choice and he was confident his defense could lead the day. It was very obvious last year, when they got rid of Edwards, got Plaxico, and let Hunter be an 'offensive lineman' that Jets FO had given up on Sanchez being the franchise QB. Tanny's extension notwithstanding.
