Now Geno will start at the 2 yard line.  Our punt return unit is as garbage as our offense.

This is what happens when you assemble street guys to play receivers. 

I love Rex but this is becoming hard to defend.  Rex is trying to scores a moral victory by losing to the Ravens by less than 15 points.  There is no moral victory in the NFL.   

In going with Max's thread. Fuck Jetsrule

 

My thread is the rule one, because it was first.  I put the time in to test the clock out.  The extra mile.  That's what winning is all about.

Let's be real here. You never want to root against your own team, but it's reached that point with Rex where someone has to put the nail in the coffin, and who better than John Harbaugh, whom the Ravens wisely hired over Rex five years ago. You want purgatory, you hang onto a coach like Rex, or like Herm, and continue hoping year after year that they're going to have some epiphany that turns them into a better coach than they are--and it never happens.

If Rex is going to become a complete coach, he should go take a college job where he has to oversee an entire team from start to finish; where he has to concern himself with everything from his quarterback to his punter to the freshmen cornerback, to the boosters and the networks, etc. Let him go learn the whole job, and not just the part where he moves his linebackers around to try and confuse a blocking scheme. Until then, you get what you got, and it's not good enough.

In the salary cap era, what has become Job 1a for any coach is to develop his players. In the past few weeks, we've watched another young QB take a statistical nose dive, we've watched the #9 overall pick corner get even worse, Stephen Hill is going to be buried on the bench, Antonio Allen get replaced by The Ghost Of Ed Reed. Say what you want about none of this being Rex's fault, but it's on the coaching staff to get the best out of his players, even if those players are imperfect. No GM has ever drafted a perfect player. They all need to be coached up. Under Rex, draft picks are brought in and (other than DL), they quickly become bodies you're stacking by the door. Rex's record with young talent is atrocious and it's not getting any better. Are some draft picks just bad to the point where they can't be coached up? Sure, but there's no conceivable way to pass through five drafts and pick bad players with the frequency that the Rex Ryan Jets have. A six year old with a Street and Smith's Draft Guide is going to stumble across an All-Pro eventually. Tannenbaum drafted Revis once. Matt Millen drafted Megatron. The bottom line is that the far majority of the players being brought in under Rex are failing, and that alone should get him fired. Hell, if you're Idzik and you're looking at Rex's track record with young talent, do you want to hand him another draft class? Simply from the interest of self-preservation, you do not.

To sum up, Rex is just good enough to ruin a franchise for a decade. He's a .500 coach who will give you hope every so often by concocting a nice defensive scheme, and he'll produce a nice DL rotation for you, and those two things alone will cover up some warts periodically, but ultimately that method will fail you the same way a good makeup job occasionally makes Katy Perry appear attractive. At the end of the day, the franchise under Rex is a middle-of-the-pack team in the Age of Parity, and it's stuck in the mud. Just because pop music sucks doesn't make Katy Perry John Lennon.
