    "It's him" said Cav when asked about Sanchez accuracy problems.

    "Just Give Rex A Good QB" should be the mantra for all Jets fans. It looks like a great bumper sticker, too.

    Jets fans are obsessed with blaming coaching instead of talent. Which is hilarious because all of the "heart Rex" threads are arguing that coaches have little influence on the QB, either you have a good one or you don't. Just give Rex a good one!
    Rodgers would not be where he is today without the coaching he got while he sat on the bench for 3 years. His mechanics were completely broken down by the coaching staff and remade. Whether I know his name is meaningless.

    You're smarter than the Bears front office, but if you dare question the wisdom of the Jets front office, you're an SOJF.
    No, that isn't even close to the truth, but you keep fishing Dick Tracy....

    And some douche bag Pats fans are obsessed with preaching to Jets fans on a Jets message board because they feel entitled as some kind of know it all because their team has had a little success by cheating the league.

    So you think Sparano is a good coach, didn't have anything to do with the offensive struggles last year? It would figure...

    Your right if Rex had a good qb in 09/10 we easily win atleast 1 Super Bowl.. Rex has proven he is a much better coach then bellicheat in the big games ( judging by how many wins Rex has as underdog vs how many playoff games bellicheat lost as favorite ) I'm not sure who the bigger choker is between Brady and bellicheat, but clearly they have choked a ton past few years... And now Brady is getting old, if not this yr next yr he most likely will deteriorate.. They already lost big players to FA and murder charges.. They had a good run though, but amount of talent they had should have easily won more superbowls if they didn't choke past few yrs..

    It's interesting though that the two coaches routinely blamed for Sanchez's problems - Schotty and Cavanaugh - both quickly found other jobs in the league. The consensus has been that these two were completely incompetent and unfit to be NFL coaches, and yet, two other NFL teams immediately hired them.
    Doesn't mean a thing. It is a re-tread league.

    No Jets QB showed steady progress under Cavanaugh (he was here before Sanchez)

    And we hired the Bills former QB coach who's last student was the fiasco called Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    Sounds like Cavanaugh is there as a sideline psychologist to ensure the temperamental diva's tender fee-fees don't get hurt during the game. Physical coaching? Not so much

    From wikipedia:
    Cavanaugh served as offensive coordinator for his old college team, the University of Pittsburgh Panthers, until 2008 when he accepted a position as Assistant Coach/Quarterbacks Coach with the New York Jets. Rex was hired on Jan. 19 2009.

    More from Cavanaugh's glowing resume:
    What are his qualifications to be a quarterbacks coach? Yes, he did play the position from 1978-1991, but, how well? For his career as a journeyman quarterback for four teams, he recorded 28 TDs, 30 INTS, and a 71.7 passer rating. Do these numbers sound familiar at all? I know the saying “Those who can do, those who can’t, teach.”, but does that mean we need a coach that is going to teach his pupil to be as bad as him. That is not going to work.
    But yet, he was hired in the NFL. Not sure why, but OK. He first was an offensive coach with the Cardinals from 1994-1995. That offense ranked 27th in the league in both years! He moved on to the 49ers in 1996, and that offense did rank 3rd, but it had Jerry Rice and Steve Young. Sorry, not a testament to the brilliant coaching mind of Matt Cavanaugh.
    He moved up in the world to Offensive Coordinator of the Chicago Bears for the 1997-1998 seasons. Those offenses ranked 28th, and 25th. So goes the glowing resume of offensive mastermind Matt Cavanaugh. He moved on to the Ravens as their coordinator from 1999-2004, which includes the Super Bowl title in 2000. The rankings were: 14th, 14th, 18th, 23rd, 8th, and 20th. In the Super Bowl year they ranked 14th. Two good years out of 11 in the NFL on offense? This is the guy that can teach our quarterback to get it done? Seriously.

    Jets name Cavanaugh QBs coach

    Updated: February 10, 2009, 9:14 AM ET

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets hired Matt Cavanaugh as their quarterbacks coach Monday.

    Cavanaugh, who spent 14 seasons in the NFL, was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Pittsburgh the past four years. He'll oversee the Jets' quarterbacks, including Brett Favre -- if he decides to return for a 19th season.

    Favre is expected to make a decision on his future within the next few weeks. The Jets also have Kellen Clemens, Brett Ratliff and Erik Ainge on the roster.

    New coach Rex Ryan also hired John DeFilippo as assistant quarterbacks coach, and retained Ben Kotwica as assistant special teams coach and Brian Smith as quality control-defense.

    Cavanaugh, 52, has 11 years of NFL coaching experience, serving as an offensive coordinator for Baltimore (1999-2004) and Chicago (1997-98) and as quarterbacks coach for San Francisco (1996) and Arizona (1994-95). After helping Pitt to a national championship in 1976, he served as a backup on Super Bowl-winning teams with the 49ers in 1985 and the New York Giants in 1991.

    DeFilippo spent the past two seasons as Oakland's quarterbacks coach after two years as an offensive quality control assistant with the Giants.

    Kotwica has spent the last two seasons as the Jets' quality control defense-special teams coach. Smith moves to defense after two seasons as the quality control-offense coach.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Cavanaugh

    He spent the previous four seasons (2009-12) in New York working with the Jets quarterbacks. During those four seasons, the Jets made two AFC Championship game appearances. In six postseason contests during that time, Jets signal caller Mark Sanchez had a 94.3 passer rating, ninth highest in NFL playoff history among quarterbacks with at least 100 postseason attempts. Sanchez’s nine postseason touchdown passes are most in franchise history and his 1,155 passing yards in the playoffs are second.

    Prior to his time with the Jets, Cavanaugh spent four seasons as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at his alma mater, the University of Pittsburgh (2005-08)

    You copied that wrong from the same site..On February 4, 2009, it was announced that Cavanaugh would leave his job as offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Panthers in order to take an offensive assistant coaching position with the New York Jets. In other news Cavanaugh was a 2nd rd pick of the Pats in 1978..
