In response to Iceman4's comment:
1.) The Jets have declined in total defense every year under Ryan: 1st in 2009, 3rd in 2010, 5th in 2011, 8th in 2012, and finally 12th in 2013. (maybe he isn't a good DC)
RESPONSE: Whose fault is that...Rex's, or the Jet's GM?
2.) Ryan has failed to prove himself capable of developing an offense and, as the 2011-2013 Jets validate, offense wins games. The defense can be absolutely dominant but if the offense doesn’t put up points, it doesn't matter.
RESPONSE: Even BB couldn't develop an offense without an NFL caliber QB, and no talented skill position players. Again, is that Rex's fault, or the fault of the GM? Wasn't Jets' GM Mike Tannenbaum fired?
3.) The Jets have had moderate success but have nothing to show for it. They have not consistently improved. In fact, they have gotten worse. Ryan has been giving many chances but, for whatever reason, has failed to field a winner in three seasons. There is something to be said for continuity but if your head coach isn’t winning you games, it is time for a change.
RESPONSE: You could bring in Vince Lombardi and it wouldn't matter, the way this team has drafted in the past, and the way that this franchise has been run. When Rex first took over, the Jets got a lot of mileage from older, free agent veterans. But, once those guys petered out, there was no one to replace them. That said, they have drafted better lately...but still lack a QB.
Were those QB's drafted as talented . Yes or No.
Texas Pat.....I have to question your support for the NY Jets at this point.
You are blaming Mike Tannenbaum for all of Rexy's failures???? Seriously?
