Pettine is probably in line for HC gigs. He's a brilliant football mind. Shame we wont be able to hold onto him.

Why would you look to extend Rex's "right hand man" if you're not looking to keep him on board? Both have talked about their bond on numerous occasions.

Pettine comes from a nuts and bolts no nonsense football family. I cant imagine he wants to be tied to the hip of Rex much longer after whats gone down.

What if Pettine is just sick of being micromanaged, or maybe he just thinks the organization is a joke?

Yep. ESPN chronicled him and Mike Jr(when he was coaching high school too) for a season back in 1999 or so. One of the better football documentaries ever done.

i think it means opposite.
Pettine is loyal to Rex and he 'thinks' Rex may be fired so he is leaving his options open so he can 'follow' Rex to new destination (Philly?)

North Penn HS hired Pettine jr. as their football coach it was a big deal and his "real job" at North Penn was the audio visual director. Lol

So who is next in line? Would be pretty interesting if Rex brought his twin over. Can you picture these two fighting on the sideline after the defense gives up a big td it would be must see tv

If Rex is back next year and Pettine is elsewhere, this will be a disaster. Before everyone says, "hey, it is Rex's defense" remember that we said the same thing about Parcells and he never won without Belicheck running his defense.

As inept as this organization is, it's hard to believe they'd be offering extensions to assistants without first deciding that everybody's coming back.

Both of these things, which indicate the exact opposite about Rex's future here, are plausible.

I think the former is more likely. If Rex is potentially getting fired, why give a coordinator a brand new contract extension that a new GM or HC has to be locked into?

The only plausible explanation would be that a new HC candidate would have to walk into a team in disarray with tons of holes (including QB), very limited cap room to fix them, and the DC just jumped ship also yet Sparano is still here.

Possible, but still I think it means Rex is coming back. I would have been - and still will be - surprised if he was fired prior to next season. Which also means a new GM - if Tannenbaum is even fired, which I will still only believe when I see it happen - would be coming into a situation locked into Rex for one more year.

Everyone knew Belly's importance. I dont think same here.
All knowledgable fans (even Tuna) gave Belly total credit for the Defensive scheme that beat the favored Bills in that wide right SB.

ya Sperm I agree, both sort of right, LOL.
My thinking, and backed up by a conversation I had with The Bergen Records JP Pelzman yesterday, is that Woody will fire Tanny, and then to save cash hire a up and comer candidate for GM. This allows him to dangle job offer with caveat he keeps Rex (and salary committed). If a high profile candidate offered, they would not allow such a caveat as any high profile GM would want 'their guy' to right the ship, especially in the 'free pass' 1st year of a new GM's regime.
Lets not forget that a up and comer may be only choice as any high profile candidate may want to steer clear of this clusterfudge. :)

This defense is overrated, also.

When teams come into play the jets, they know that if they get 17 points, that the deal is most likely sealed as a win. Teams don't have to come into play the Jets with a "wide open" offensive approach. They know if they plod along, don't make mistakes, eventually the jets will give them the game.

How many shoot outs have the Jets been involved with this year where the other team had to open up their offense? 2? (the Bills and the Colts?).

Teams are able to just stay on the ground vs. the Jets and in most cases have the lead, and they don't need to pile up yards.

If the Jets had any semblance of an offense, the reality is that the defensive rankings would be worse.

The hope is, if that happens, that they do not try to salvage Rex into a job saving mode next year, punt with contracts and put all the dead money toward the 2013 cap, suffer the consequences with a horrible year, fire Rex after the debacle, and then truly build for the future.

Interesting comparison, but there are more reasons to think Ryan would be succesful without Pettine than Parcells without Belichick. There were a few times when the team struggled here and Rex went back to calling the D. I don't remember Parcells EVER thinking about that on the defensive side of the ball and he wasn't shy about pulling play calling for O. There may be something to the attention to detail and preparation requirements that Rex may need from the outside, but I think he handles the concepts as well as anybody. Of course Belichick was the detail gollum in his cave plotting, so maybe there is something to your fears.

Honestly, this makes a ton of sense. Woody likes to pinch pennies, and Tannenbaum burned a sh*tload of them on Sanchez's contract extension, but I wouldn't be surprised if he sees Rex as an asset that he'd want to keep on board, anyway. There's a very strong case that can be made that the problem on the Jets is talent much more than it is coaching.

As for the candidates, JiF posted some comments from Charlie Casserly that sounded like he was lobbying for the job, and interested in keeping Rex on board.

My other question here would be: who's offering this contract extension to Pettine? Woody, Rex, or Tannenbaum?

I hear ya Scott, but that is how it will 'sort of' play out I think.
A new GM means Woody unhappy with contracts, depth,draft etc etc.
Keeping Rex (if a up and comer GM is hired) means they are just saving money by not eating Rex's contract.
A high profile GM would fire Rex 2 seconds after hired. Its just the way it works. A Polian would bring in 'his guy'.
So if Rex is here, they will get a vet QB to maybe salvage decent season with still good Defense. if Rex pulls a miracle he survives in 2014. They will get rid of some cap issues before season starts, buy try and maintain a 9-7 (we can make a run) [philosophy.
If Jets flop, then I assume we will see trades for picks at Trade deadline.
