Rex Ryan is a DC, not a HC. In Baltimore, he was a DC with a boss. Here he is a DC without a boss. Still a DC. Always will be.

After all the hoopla and BS ... it could be just this simple

I think the biggest part of the problem is the lack of a boss. If he was working for a strong GM who had total control of football operations, Rex, in turn, would be in a better position to just coach.

If this team had an adequate QB, no one would be talking about Rex as a bad head coach. Middle of the road QB-ing would have this team in the playoffs four years in a row. The problem seems to be that the QBs suck, and Rex doesn't publicly chastise them.

I agree that having an average QB would have produced different results. But the bottom line is Rex is a weak HC. Weakness hires weakness -- that is why Tony Sparano is (was) our OC. If Rex is to stay around it must be under a strong, authoritative GM that comes with a football pedigree. Also, the new OC should not be subordinate to Rex. Call it whatever you like -- Assistant Head Coach, Co-Head Coach -- we need a skilled leader on the other side of the ball who is his own man. Otherwise, just take a Ginsu the whole organization and start over.

I dont think truer words were ever spoken on this board. Noone was doubting Rex in his first 2 years as HC when he was coaching the AFC Champ game. Now 2 years removed, he is a bad HC...If he had a decent QB, not even a good QB, he would have made the playoffs each of his first 4 years as a HC and again, people on this board would be singing a different toon. I hope he gets more chances to prove he is the long term solution to our HC position. As stated earlier, I am not ready to throw the baby out with the bathwater and that bathwater is sanchez...

All true but any HC worth a dam dresses McElroy Monday night knowing how awful Sanchez has been and the slim play-off hopes on the line.

Sorry but one curious move after another followed by idiotic explanations has shown me that he is not HC material.

A strong GM would not make Rex a HC. He is a DC. He was a DC when he got here and he has not grown into a HC. He is like Sanchez, he is what he is.

In the post game PC, after his hand picked QB accounted for 5 turnovers against a bottom feeding Titans team, needing this game to keep his playoff chances alive, his first remarks where. "We did not stop them on 2 runs".

Really Rex? That was the biggest problem tonight? From Rex the DC's perspective, yes. From any real HC, no.

Ya, new GM (if high profile) wil lcan Rex.

Also, Rex still views himself as running D, while he lets Sporano/Schottty run Off.

His comments prove he really doesnt view them as equal parts which a REAL HC would.

This last press conference (which, true to my word i did not watch but read about on this site) was an abomination. His responses to questions about why he made this decision were completely irrational and should disqualify him from future employment as Head Coach of this team. What head coach anywhere could get away with answers like these? It is an embarassment. I do not want my head coach making decisions like this "from his gut." I want him to have specific reasons for his choices.
