Similarities include both coaches being saddled with QB's they never wanted: Favre/Tebow in order to sell PSL's.
Mangini is 8-4 before the Favre nose-dive. Loses his job over it.
Rex bets the house on Mark Sanchez. And the offense goes from good to bad as the offense disintigrates.
Mangini Drafts: D'Brick, Mangold, Eric Smith, Brad Smith, Leon Washington, Drew Coleman,Revis, David Harris Chansi Stuckey, Keller. Gholston was a bad pick but we that same year we signed Faneca, Pace, Woody, T-Rich, Jenkins and...Favre.
Rex picks: Sanchez, Greene, Slauson, Wilson, Ducasse, McKnight, Connor, Wilkerson, Ellis, Powell, Kerley McElroy FA: Holmes, Cromartie, Shlauderaff, Scott, Leonard
Mangini inherited a 4-12 team and took thento 10-6, back to 4-12, then to 9-7
Rex inherited a 9-7 team and went 9-7, 11-5, 8-8, ?
So. Obviously Tannenbaum is bad at football stuff. But setting him aside, who would you rather have building your team going forward? For me, its not that obvious an answer.
