We haven't been able to stop the run consistently since Jenkins went down and everybody knows it. The problem is that rather than addressing the correct areas int he fvcking draft, we dump money on primadonnas like Holmes and Revis. That did us a lot of good. They're both out and the mistake that Rex is making is not putting Revis on IR hoping he can come back for the playoffs. That's just stupid thinking to begin with. If the team managed to make it to the playoffs without him, you keep him out.
I'm FAR from saying Rex is the greatest coach ever for the Jets, but I'm also not ready to fire him considering he hasn't even had a losing season with us yet. Last I checked, his record is 34-23 as a HC including post season. Yeah.....that justifies firing him.
And before San Fran hired what appears to be a truly great coach...they were a 6-10 team in 2010 and on a a pretty horrible stretch of futility for years. But Harbaugh has turned that team around instantly...and he's done it with Alex Smith at QB.
I hate to say it, because I have really liked Rex...but the warning I gave when Rex was first hired has come to pass. I thought back then that Rex could easily be a great coordinator because he can be lax with his players and they love him...but as a head coach he needs to be the mean disciplinarian sometimes. And I wasn't sure he could do that.
If you watch this team this year, it's apparent Rex can't be the disciplinarian. His team is lazy and unprepared.
And the players he has brought in...ugh. I have disagreed with his personnel philosophy since day one. Rex wants to take chances and dumb, immature freak athletes over smart, hard nosed football players...the complete opposite of Mangini. Say what you want about Mangini, but he set this team up for success with his personnel. Remember when the media made fun of how his draft classes had the highest collective GPA in college...yeah well...turns out that was a pretty good strategy.
I really like Rex, and I think he's a good guy and a great DC...but I have to admit...I'm off the train. This team is getting worse every year. I would love to see Cowher in here.
