Let's face it guys, with everybody else being gone do you think that Woody Johnson would have been able to handle that press conference all by himself today? I mean there is no GM, no OC, No DC, no STs coach, no QB coach, hell there ain't even a strength and conditioning guy anymore....all that is left is Scott Cohen and maybe Dennis Thurman....and Rexy....God help us...we so effed

Rex wasn't fired because he's a better coach than anyone available (including Andy Reid, Lovie Smith, etc.)

Rex also wasn't fired because he has an overall winning record and only now has one losing season.

There are people on this board who didn't want to see Herm go who want Rex fired? That's friggin' insane to me.

Rex wasn't fired because based on what he has done so far he deserves to be the Head Coach and Head Coach only of this team. You have Sanchez as your QB and you have only ONE losing season. How is that not a out of this world accomplishment.

The only thing I like about Rex is this team should have collapsed like the Cardinals did. This tells me Rex does have something special as a coach. I just fear he wont realize until after he's fired what he needs to do to be a great coach.


That being said, when reviewing a coach's performance, won-loss record doesnt tell the whole story.

Having Sanchez as his QB for 4 years is why he SHOULD be fired.

Dennis Thurman is actually the new DC.


Light was to bright here for Pettine so he ran off to Buffalo. Rex rises like a phoenix from the ashes

Well, he did say they were leaning towards promoting from within -- so it could be anybody. Not good.

One of the most encouraging things to come out of that press conference was Woody saying the GM would be picking the players.

Rex is helping to pick the GM so who's really in charge? Plus they're now talking Scott Cohen. Rex will be pulling the strings again

No. But with that sh!t show at QB this team shouldnt have won 2 games. How they won 6 is baffling to me. Which tells me Rex has something...

Worst case scenario. Seriously.

I'll wait 'til it happens before I get pissed off about it, though.

Rex wasn't fired because he's owed 6 mil. And that's real money. Rex might have gotten another job right away... or he might have gone to ESPN and pocketed the money.

1. Increase parking fee
2. Increase hot dog cost.


And yes, if the Jets fired Rex, he would be a head coach somewhere else by the weekend.

Definitely, the only other coaching option this year was Doug Marrone and he's off the market

what does that mean? Rex has a contract. terminating that contract early means huge money in rex's pocket for doing nothing. woody can wait 1 year and fire Rex for free. this seems like the rational thing to do.

I see alot of comments about Woody, and i'm not saying he's an amazing owner, but he's pretty much what you want in an owner. Stays out of the day-to-day and doesn't meddle. When he fired Tanny at least he knew enough to know he needed help finding a replacement. In fact the only difference between Woody and Bob Kraft is that Bob Kraft got lucky when his franchise found Brady and woody has been somewhat unlucky finding their Qb. of course he was lucky by being born so i guess it all evens out.
