    We're letting crap players walk, and deciding who is worth paying in the future.

    But to Jets fans everything has to be so dramatic.
    We'll be having about 14 new starters on this team. Gotten rid of mostly all the aging vets. How is this not rebuilding??? It's not being dramatic, it's the truth.

    Rebuilding isn't a bad thing, just something that needs to be done.

    And to the OP: I have no idea why Rex is here, but he's probably gonna cost us a top 5 pick next year if that's what we're aiming for. His defense is probably gonna save us a couple of wins to get us to at least 5 wins.

    He is the head coach because Woody made that a condition of any gm's employment. It is as simple as that. Whether Rex is a good or bad coach is irrelevant. In most cases Gm's will bring their own guy in unless a powerful coach of the likes of Andy Read is chosen 1st.

    We will only find out if Rex has the right stuff to be a good head coach or not in the next year or so. He has done some good things and has made some huge mistakes. If he repeats his errors he is a poor head coach.

    I will do this one more time. Feel free to sticky somewhere so I do not have to do this again.

    The Jets HC job was unsellable this offseason. We were in cap hell. We are saddled with an awful qb we cant cut. We have an overpaid troublemaker at wr that we cant cut.

    Rex still has 2 years left on his deal. Woody does not want to pay 2 head coach salaries for more then 1 year.

    After the Jets finish the season with the worst record in the league, this becomes the hottest job in the nfl.

    We will have money to spend and the 1st pick in every round of the 2014 draft. A coaches dream is to build his own team and get to pick his qb with the 1st pick in the draft.

    This is a brilliant plan by Woody and izdik.

    Wrecks has no such resume.
    Rex has also taken two teams to AFCCGs.

    And for as much as people like to say the Jets were "lucky" to get there, BOTH of the Giants SB runs were full of "fortuity" -- they almost didn't even make the playoffs both times.

    I'm not saying Rex is Coughlin, but for some of you Coughlin isn't Coughlin either (at least what you make him out to be). Sometimes it's the right place at the right time, and as a previous poster said, Rex has a chance to prove he is that person before he is shown the door . . .

    How people can annoint Rex a GREAT coach based on his entire body of work is alarming.

    I know you are down on him, I am not as down BUT he is an average coach at best until proven otherwise.

    barely a 500 coach regular season.

    Rex wins including playoffs in 4 years as jets coach.

    6 wins
    8 wins
    13 wins
    11 wins

    the 6 wins was with a slow team who lost their best offensive and defensive players.....give me a break....he is a good coach.

    2) If the Jets perform as expected, the new coach will inherit a dramatically improved cap situation and a high pick that could, presumably, be a franchise QB or a game-changing defensive player like Clowney. If you're a highly coveted HC candidate, the Jets job looks a lot better next year than it does this year.

    Besides Parcells, he's the best HC this organization has ever seen. He's done more in his first stint coaching than anyone ever has. If that's not proof positive to keep him? I don't know what is.

    If the Colts and Bengals didn't sit all their starters in Wreck's first year, the Jets would have finished 7-9 and miss the playoffs.

    That would have meant Wreck's would have had 3 out of 4 non-winning seasons.

    Or did he somehow "coach" the Colts and Bengals to sit their starters?

    Someone's gotta take the fall for the 4 win season we're about to have. This is a good play by Izdick.

    you obviously don't know how to read.

    the OP is saying that because it appears the jets are rebuilding, then why keep Rex for ONE more year? if he's the coach of the future, why not extend him? and if they don't believe he is, then why didn't woody get rid of him with the rest of the firings?

    it can only be to save money. and not be paying 2 coaches this year.

    they still would have beat the bengals. which they proved, beating them the very next week when it counted. but continue to exaggerate the truth.

    Its retooling...cutting the fat and bringing in players that are young with more upside. We will be "retooling" until we find a ****ing qb. Our defense will still be very solid which is why I am not with the crowd that thinnks we are only winning 4 games. The jets will be beat the bad teams with no qbs like they normally do.

    The only player that will be hard to replace is landry. I believe we will bring back pouha on the cheap. Everyone else is replaced or will be easily replaced via draft or FA.

    Im not considering revis yet because nothing has happened with him, the way this market is going his price may very well come down to the 12 million that I believe we all would accept to sign him at.
