What moves are they? Schlegel? Gholston?
When Mangini was shown the door, Tannenbaum was given the credit for all the the team's good moves, and Mangini was credited with the above. You're the one with the revisionist history lesson.
I agree with you that Rex had too much say in personnel decisions, but disagree on your reasons. My feeling is that Tannenbaum was weak, lacked any personnel evaluations skills of his own, and leaned too heavily on Rex as a result. Tannenbaum may've been partnered with Mangini, but he hired Rex. He was Rex's boss. He just sucked at it. Now he's gone. But this is a failing of the boss, for relying on underlings who are also not qualified to do the job that he was ultimately responsible for. That's why I believe he was fired.
I want Rex out of the personnel decisions. I'm hoping Idzik really is the adult in the room.
1) Schlegal and Gholston were attrocious picks, but to say they did not fit what they were TRYING to accomplish is completely clueless. Schlegel was drafted to be a MLB in the 3-4, Gholston was drafted to provide a much needed pass rush.
They were both God awful picks, but I never once argued they did a great job with scouting, my argument was they had a plan and stuck to it, never even said it was a good plan.
2)That is always, always the case when a "team" is broken up like that, and one stays. Just like now, Tanny is getting all the blame, and Rex is getting more power. Open your eyes, take off the beer goggles you have for Rex.
3) I don't like Tanny, nor defend him at all, I am glad he is gone, but Rex should be gone too. If you cannot rely on your HC for personnel input, you have a major, major problem. Rex has proven time and time again, he sucks as a personnel evaluator, which for this and many, many other reasons, I don't want him as HC of the Jets.
If you want him to be a DC, I love that, would be thrilled with that, but I don't under any circumstances believe you can have a successful franchise if the HC cannot strongly contribute to personnel decisions, they don't have to be the final say, but you damn well better be able to evaluate talent, it is a core fundamental job responsibility as HC.
