Per ESPN Radio:

 

Also said Idzik was pissed that Sanchez was lost for the season because of the stupid Snoopy Bowl decision (Sorry "competition" camp). Also said Idzik is faulting Rex for offensive personnel decisions that had some cause of the decline on offense.

I can believe Rex is getting fired but if Snoopy bowl is the reason we are in big trouble with Idzik in charge.  Everyone knows Idzik wanted to start Geno. That's the whole reason why Geno started preseason game 3 even though he didn't earn it.

Got to disagree Bit.  I Like Rex, but said at the time that if it was Rex who was fully responsible for putting Sanchez back in that game at that point, he deserved to be canned.

 

The season was lost at that moment.   Don't like Sanchez, and am glad he's gone, but he's much better then Smith

So it is only competition for Geno?  They only play with the ones?  Simms was supposed to get all the reps with the twos AND threes?  Makes perfect sense.  If only Mark Sanchez weren't such a valuable commodity that we could not risk getting him injured.  I'm sure that Idzik would have preferred starting Sanchez.

 

I wonder what "offensive personnel decisions they are referring to. They haven't cut anybody of any value whatsoever.  The lack of talent is obvious, but it was known at the start of camp.  Maybe which TE they used?  The use of the WRs that were hurt and lagging?  Winters is probably the main guy starting that is below JAG level and you'd think that would be on Idzik.

Only three things can happen in any situation -- results decline; stay the same; or improve.  And two of the three are unacceptable in the case of the Jets. The trend line during Rex's tenure is pretty clear.  The quality of the product on the field stinks and, ultimately, that is on his head.

 

Whether this gets him the axe, who knows with this dysfunctional organization.  Based on five years of results, he deserves to be fired.

Sanchez got mad at Idzik when he got hurt, not Rex.  I think Idzik is making sure to tie that to Rex before turning the page.

 

the whole thing reads like an obvious lie. for idzik to be really mad about sanchez' injury? cmon. no one really believes that

people talk about how firing Rex will bring hope

 

remember when replacing Schotty with Sparano brought hope? 

No, because most of us wanted Rex fired after the season before he had another great hire in Sparano.

 

Nope, HOPE starts December 30th, 2013. Until then, nothing but despair.

LOL

 

Not to me.  I live in South Florida and know how well Sparano handled the Fish.  I was very sad to see him get fired, then beside myself when the Jets hired him

No, that's not true.  Even now after this disastrous season  Jets fans are closely split on if Rex should stay or not.    See the poll thread.   35-30

I'd be more inclined to buy this if Clayton wasn't the only one saying it. Almost everyone else thinks that Rex had overachieved and the Jets will keep him. Unless Clayton is talking to people nobody else has access to, I'd be surprised if he's right.

Its not really shocking. The team once again started faster than it finished and played very inconsistent throughout. You really can't have that three years in a row. If after the 5-4 start the team played well and lost it would be one thing - but they played horrible in some of those games.

This is not going to be a 1 year fix - next year will be more of the same as this year.  If Rex is retained, it's just putting off the inevitable.  Time to move on for both parties involved.

You know for sure that Idzik isn't telling Clayton, so it's coming from an assistant coach who knows he's about to be unemployed. Sanchez's brother has been a fairly reliable source all year, to boot.

Some team will be getting an awesome DC pretty soon. 

 

True, but there are other awesome DC's in the league. Maybe this opens up a chance for Dunbar? Greg Williams will also be available as well as other good candidates. My point is, Rex is not irreplaceable.
