In the past decade the highest the offense has ranked is 11th. (Under Rex) were 1 and 2 in rushing his first 2 seasons here and have ranked in the top half in rushing 4/5 seasons under Rex. Don't quite understand where the notion comes from that he ignores the offense or doesn't know what he's doing. It's not his fault the front office over pays for scrubs and has no weapons on offense. Don't take my word for it here's Mike Westhoff's interview on the Stephen A Smith and Ryan Ruocco show today and you can here this myth be put to sleep by a man who coached with Rex for 4 years and he happens to think Rex is a great coach... But he does he know he's not a JI member http://espn.go.com/espnradio/newyork/play?id=10147919
Thanks for proving my point from earlier, OP.
"1 and 2 in rushing" = we ran the ball the most. Don't think we were at the top in yards per carry. Rex's strategy sucks in today's nfl
Is the OP related to Rex?
Rex is a HC like his father was a HC. Overmatched. This was the fear when he came in here. He would be able to field a good defense pretty much every year but the offense would be totally marginalized, ignored and it would suck as a result.
Buddy did this in Philadelphia and Arizona. There is zero evidence that Rex pays any attention whatsoever to the offense.
I like Rex but he is simply not equipped to be a HC and there is zero evidence that he is learning anything on the job. The criticisms of his weaknesses have been constant and he shows no signs at all of addressing them after five years.
On the other hand Woody likes him.

^ Russell Wilson just broke the record for most TD passes during his first two seasons. The Seahawks can pass the ball very well.
So, in 5 seasons -- 2 seasons with Rookie QB's -- Rex is supposed to tell the OC to draw up some game plans where they dissect the opponent with the passing game? Who would be throwing all of these passes? Who would he be throwing to? Give me a break.
He is THE GUY. All problems on the field are his fault. All of them. His and the GM. Why do some people continue to try and find excuses here. If you are not going to be responsible then don't accept the damned job in the first place.

What part of this is opaque?
It is lunacy to believe the HC has greater control over a team's fortunes than the starting QB.
Why does Rex keep getting a free pass for decisions that he either made on his own or at the very least decisions that he must have signed off on? Can I get a stack of get out of jail free cards like that from somewhere?
P.S. I was in the "wait and see" camp on Rex basically until this morning on this thread. I would hire him back as the DC in a heartbeat and even make his retention a strong suggestion to the new HC but he, like his father does not have the tool set to be a HC in my opinion.

2011, 2012, 2013, culminating in an Offense Ranked 30th in Yards, 31st in Scoring & 32nd in Takeaway vs. Giveaways.Don't quite understand where the notion comes from that he ignores the offense or doesn't know what he's doing.
Yes, it is. He has had as much a say as anyone as to whom we've aquired in his tenure.It's not his fault the front....
You may choose to accept mediocrity and three consecutive non-winning, non-playoff seasons, with one of the consistently worst offenses in the NFL, but not all of us do.
Kotite, Edwards, Mangini, they all had their to-the-end supporters too.
