If you really think about it everyone who has criticized the JETS for the past 40 plus years has been right. But that does not mean there are no douchebags amongst those nay sayers. Some criticize based on merits of the situations and belive me I am sure there has been a lot to criticze. But some criticize no matter what and most of the times without any merit. Fatcessa is one of those douchebags.

I will never understand why everyone hates Francesa ,yet still listens to him. Same goes for cimini, mheta, and others. If you don't like them, don't follow them on twitter, don't give them hits to their websites, and don't quote them on the boards. There are still other writers you can give you good information without their bullsh*t slant.

Cimini is actually very good for relaying stats compiled by ESPN Stats & Information that he quotes all the time. His opinion pieces are crap though.

I used to enjoy Mehta's articles before they turned all tabloid with reporting their 'news'. I actually can't even follow Mehta (or Gary Myers for that matter). The Daily News writers have no balls or spines now. As soon as you criticize them, they block you. For me, it was when I told Mehta that my sources told me that his sources were full of sh*t. He didn't like that and he and his butt-buddy Myers blocked me. I was told it's like a badge of honor to get blocked by the NYDN writers now :)

Francessa is an a-hole, but that said, pretty much everything he has said about the Jets for the past 4 years has been dead on when it comes to the Jets, dead on.

The problem with Fatcesa is that even if the Jets resurrected Lombardi himself and won some Super Bowls, he would either bitch and moan about the team before the Super Bowls and then if they win he would act like the other team sucked and wouldn't give the Jets any credit. When you have a radio or television personality who openly admits that they hate the team that they are talking about, they lose any and all credibility they once had.

I don't expect everything to be praised by everyone, but I do expect fairness in what's being said. Jets deserve to be ripped for being a crappy football team but the other stuff is a lot of BS. Francesa just hates the Jets. Idzik has barely sat down in his office and he's already a failure. I mean, come on.

This this and this......he spent then whole month of January in our first run ton the championship game picking apart every missed field goal against us...every bad throw...every tipped pass and calling us the luckiest team in history.....this coming from a guy who roots for a team..( even though he basically denies it ) who won at the time 2 of their 3 ( now 4 ) super bowls on a missed field goal and a miracle play where a hail Mary got stuck to a 7 th string receivers helmet.

You Rex lovers are funny....

Every time you get your panties in a bunch about Rex, it always comes back to the two AFCC games.....

I must have missed the parade for that!

Francesca has been fair and honest with Rex, we completely lucked into both of those games, and this franchise is an absolute disaster because of Rex, and will take years to fix.

Rex had one great win, one, and it was two games short of what we needed.

Even Herm had a few great wins as a Jet HC, and everyone now acknowledges how bad he was.

Rex is a joke, We are a joke under Rex.

Those two AFCC games are long, long gone, and we ain't sniffing one of those ever again under Rex.

Francessa was fair with both Herm and Mangini, nd he tells it like it is with Rex, you Rex lovers just can't handle the truth.

I have no idea who you're talking to. Who are these "Rex lovers" you constantly bring up?

The truth is that Rex is the head coach this year, and it looks like you're the one who can't handle it. I can't imagine how awful this season will be for you if the Jets do something shocking this year like win a few games.

And Francesa is a tool. Always has been. But sports radio is asinine in general, and he fits right in.

There are plenty of Rex lovers on this board.

Most who get their panties in a wad about Francessa trashing the Jets are Rex lovers, as Francessa never did this under Mangini.

I agree that Francessa is a tool, but everything he has said about Rex and the Jets under Rex, has been dead accurate, once again, I will ask someone to bring up something he has said about Rex or the Jets since Rex got here that has been proven to be wrong?

And I know Rex will win games, he is a good enough DC to do that, problem is he sucks ass as a HC, and this team will go nowhere as long as Rex is the HC.

And for the record, as long as the games have meaning, I will root passionately for the Jers to win, regardless of the coach, that's what I do.

I can handle it just fine, I handled Worse than Rex in the past, but that does not mean I like it, or will I support that moron being the HC of the team I love.

Your panties seem to be wadded up more often on this subject than anyone else's. Most people agree with you that Rex is more defensive coordinator than head coach, and that he shouldn't have a lot of say in personnel matters. A lot of the people who support Rex feel that way. Your "Rex lovers" are almost exclusively straw men.

So anyway, this year they have a new GM who'll have final say in personnel matters, and have hired another former head coach to run the offense - one who's actually had success running offenses in this league. In other words, Woody Johnson, for all his faults, seems to recognize Rex's shortcomings, and they've made moves to neutralize them. In fact, we've also had a report that Woody isn't completely enamoured with Rex. Hopefully Idzik's the right hire, because he looks to be the new guy in the organization who has the owner's ear.

Rex is going to have to exceed expectations and impress Idzik to keep his job beyond this season. I'm rooting for him, because if he does that, it's good for the organization. If he doesn't, then I'll root for Idzik to make the right hire next year.

My panties are certainly not in a wad over Francessa.

I was responding to the comments that Francessa is someohow unfair to Rex and the Jets.

You and I are never going to agree on this, that is fine.

If you have a HC you need to neutralize, that is a serious problem. A HC to be effective needs to be a leader in the organization, even if they are not the only leader.

I don't believe anything that comes out of reports about what Woody is thinking. The Jets throw all kinds of BS out to see how their fans respond, everything Woody does is about making money, not necessarily winning.

Most head coaches in this league aren't good at everything, and many aren't as good at any one thing as Rex is with defense. The biggest weakness in the team's leadership last year was Tannenbaum, who was unqualified as as a personnel manager. As a result, he leaned too heavily on the head coach in those matters. Hopefully that's done with now.

The next big problem has been offense. Shottenheimer lasted too long, and Sporano turned out to be a bad hire. And, of course, there's also the Sanchez problem. Looks like Rex has learned a little something by bringing in a guy who at least runs a late 20th century style offense.

I think Rex may've overestimated his ability to coach everyone, and as a result he brought in too many sh*theads. I'm looking forward to seeing what Idzik does to change the culture around here personnel-wise.

Overall, I see some signs of Woody and Rex both learning from past mistakes. Now we need to see it play out. I'm just willing to give them a chance. What choice do I have? Can't fire the owner, we can only hope he gets better. If Rex doesn't pick it up this year, he will be fired. Either way, this was gonna be a rough year.
