    The bottom line is this. If they had fired Rex after this season, the fans would be pissed, the media would be pissed, the players would be pissed. Everybody would be pissed. You support the development of Geno Smith. What do you call the last 4 games of the year?

    Belichick has steadily increased the talent level of this team over the last few years and has turned them into a very deep team. They've probably had many more draft picks than most teams from trading down so much, and they have hit on quite a few of those picks. That and a few key FA additions has allowed them to be successful in spite of losing multiple key players on both sides of the ball.
    They do have depth. They actually lack the same thing that we do. Offensive talent that can stay healthy. Their coaching and QB THIS YEAR, has them on the doorstep.

    Since when does only part of a person's record count?Nice of you to leave out his two first years and cherry pick the three last.

    Perhaps he's highlighting a downward trend?

    You're always wrong. So this is good for the Jets.

    Well, the Jets went from 6-10 to 8-8..... I'm no mathematician, but I'd call that an upward trend.

    As a Pats fan, I benefit by having a very colorful and polarizing HC leading a team that is viewed as fierce rival. Rex will ALWAYS make Pats/Jets games more interesting and fun. My team benefits by having a division opponent being lead by someone who, as of this point, hasn't fully mastered the role of HC, either in game management or in the role as the leader. I'm sure Jet fans hope that he will learn from his mistakes and by the end of this contract, become "the master of his domain".

    At any rate, I'm sure most Jet fans are happy with this announcement....and we'll see how it works out over the next few years.
    Holy crap you are still an amazing ignorant douche bag!

    LOL, you tried convincing yourself for several weeks Rex may still not be back, now that you were wrong again, those who suppport the move are sheep, those who don't are right...

    REX IMO is the best available coach for the JETS. Firing him would be a step backwards.....

    Im glad we have him.

    Idzik is all business. One prominent example is of course Rex's toned-down style in 2013. No more Rex-Tanny Boy's Night Out persona, and that not a coincidence. Extending Rex is good business--among other things we won't get the week-by-week media "analysis" of whether Rex will be back, and that's one less distraction. At the same time, the incentive-laden deal premised on playoff success makes clear that Idzik is not throwing parades about an 8-8 year. As has been said, Rex is the best coach for this team right now, and he very well might turn into a top flight head coach---but Idzik isn't sending Rex to Canton just yet. It's also possible to conclude---and I do---that this reflects a positive self confidence on the part of Idzik. He's responsible for the roster and he expects to continue to improve the players that Rex has been hired to coach. As in, I'll do my job, you do yours.

    And Ray you're an uniformed dick, who can't respond to any post without attacking the poster. It would be one thing if you only attacked Pats fans. But you constantly try to bully Jet fans whose only crime is that they happen to disagree with you. Seriously dude. Seek help, this level of unprovoked anger can't be healthy. \]

    BTW - name anything I wrote in my post that is negative or isn't true. You can't. You don't even try. All you can do is try to bully people. You probably didn't even read the post, you just saw my name and attacked. Your weak attempt to intimidate others is getter really old, tired and pathetic

    Congrats to Rex on his new deal. Now he needs to close the books on his assistants. Mostly these are good coaches. MM is a key, but some of the position coaches are excellent.

    You have to hope the 2 departures were planned. Still a mystery about where Rex's cronies fit in. I assume that the Jets will move quickly to button things down quickly. Not so much the vacancies as the resignings. Failure to do so would be a black eye for the franchise.

    One presumes that if the Jets kept the "fixed" cost of the contract low so that they can fire Rex cheaply if he doesn't get to the playoff's, then the contingent money is above market for comparable success. Agents are generally pretty good at negotiation.

    I think the pressure now shifts to Idzik. Rex is what he is. But John had a good year operating from a position of weakness. Now he has an opportunity to put his stamp on the franchise. He needs to deliver quality FA's and good draft choices creating a coherent, deep and talented roster.

    We all wish him well.

    PS rehire Westy!

    No idea, but fear of the next coach being not as good or worse is not a reason to not make the change.

    The first 2 years were post Mangini, everything he built up, brought over, drafted, coached up. The last 3 years or even 2 years you saw the team that Rex built. And quite frankly it's a piece of ****.

    Exactly what I expected. The redskins were interviewing Perry Fewell, maybe we would have went that route. If you have this bright idea of firing Rex, you should at least be able to name a replacement. Idzik felt Rex was the best guy out there. Who should he have brought in? Just saying anybody, including the Janitor, doesn't cut it.

    We went through this starting in 2009.

    Geno can be good, but don't just give him the job - kind of like Rex was just given an extension.

    We'll see what happens.

    I think Idzik made it clear that the Jet's aren't 100% sold on Geno. We should always have a starter, a veteran backup (or future starter) and an up and comer on our QB depth chart. If the Jets are convinced Geno's not the guy he'll have serious com for the #1 slot.
