Sooth is correct, I said this before Rex will not be judged on wins & losses
this year. He will be judged on how he develops the young talent he will
"multiple more years"
Rex is safe as can be after the picks in this draft. Honestly, he has put out great defenses since he has been here and the talent has been worse and worse. Rex and Marty can be a deadly combination given their resumes, and only giving them one year together when the Jets are rebuilding would be crazy. Keep Rex and we will be ready to seriously compete in the 2014 season.
Rex and Marty consistently have their defense & offense in the top 15 respectively. Put them together, give them some talent, and let's watch a strong Jets team. If you think we will be worse than last year than you are mistaken.
I think the Jets retool this year, start Garrard/maybe Geno, and bring Geno along in a few weeks. Jets go 7-9 Rex is extended three years, Geno becomes the starter mid 2013/2014, Sanchez released. High draft picks more help around Geno for a great 2014His boy Sanchez is gone and the pick of Smith puts an exclamation point to the team's gutting and rebuilding.
Unless the team goes like 2-14, he'll get an extension.
Rex is a stopgap in a lost season.
Let him sit and stew in this mess he created with Tannenbaum.
