    Good for Rex. I was one of the loudest critics on here of that butchering, but I totally accept him saying he screwed up. Happens.

    Now let's get a cheat sheet or just hire someone to just sit in the booth and deal with only clock scenarios. Would be probably a relief for Rex to have that off his plate, as long as it's someone he trusts.

    OK, time to separate out the acknowledgement that it was a problem from any idea that because of the problem anyone here thinks that it is time to fire Rex.

    It is not and yet these things are an issue.

    Now if a leader is a big enough man to concede that these problems have occurred before and continue to occur four years into his tenure here then it is a pretty small step towards bringing in someone to close that "hole" in Rex's game. Close it before it costs us a result. It may mean bringing in a Dick Curl type (I doubt it) or it may simply mean empowering people on the sidelines or in the booth to call a "code red" or some such whenever Rex is having a brain fart...

    We want the good parts of what Rex brings to the table and we want to know that there is a plan in place to address the bad parts.

    And it happened twice!
    Only thing I can think of is the assistants had already left the booth to go down to the locker room.

    Rex is a great conceptual thinker, his spatial reasoning is probably good, but when it comes to crunching absolute numbers he is bad.

    I feel like playing so much madden growing up (lol sounds crazy) and watching so much football, I personally know more than most coaches when it comes to end of half and end of game clock management scenarios

    It's not just a Rex Ryan thing, I see so many dumb decisions all of the time around the NFL

    Hate to say it but Belichik is pretty spot on in these situations

    In fairness, the head coach standing on the sideline isn't in a lounge chair, drinking a soft drink or a beer, with nothing else happening during commercials to distract him. Personnel, play calling, dumb penalties, bad officiating, lack of sleep, people talking to him on the headset, people talking to him in person. It's a bit more chaotic than the surroundings of your Xbox.

    I mean, how do you not know to just take a knee? How do you introduce the chance of error in the most winnable situation in football? This just validates criticism that Rex is an awful decision maker.

    What's more interesting is that nobody talked him out of that. And of course we saw the Bucs do it last night as well

    That's a bit too broad a conclusion.

    I assume you mean they did it right. Because they did it exactly right.

    I just think it shows that Rex is willing to admit a mistake and try to grow from it. I know the anti-Rex crowd will find it a reason to criticize... I think it's an example of Rex's desire and willingness to improve.

    I'm not anti-Rex. I'm just anxious for the improvement. It's overdue.

    I wasn't saying you, specifically. Didn't mean to imply that. Sorry.

    I personally think that Rex shouldn't be asked to deal with this; we know what he's good at (coaching defense) and what he's not (coaching offense and clock management). At this point, it's unlikely that's going to change. The only reason we have Rex continuously flubbing these types of situation is because that's the way the NFL has always done it. There's no reason not to have someone on the sidelines dealing with things like challenges and clock management, except for the fact that no one has really done it before.

    We've seen Rex's impulsive nature hurt the team with challenges this year (against Buffalo) and he's never been a good clock manager. I think he's a better than average NFL coach, but I think the best thing he could do would be to recognize his flaws in these areas and essentially outsource them; it's what he'd done with the offense, and I think the offense is better for it.

    Not entirely. This isn't the lone reason why people criticize Rex, it just lends support to their criticism.

    Fair enough....it's also part of their job though

    Overall, teams are too by the book and not aggressive enough in end of game/half decisions

    Not nearly as bad as coaches butchering timeouts though, especially with regards to the 2 minute warning

    Atleast once a week I'm baffled just watching the end of a close game
