You can't bash Rex Ryan anymore.
 
This guy took the Jets to the AFC Title game two years in a row. In 2009 running into Manning in the RCA dome with a rookie QB. In 2010 beating the Pats and your prize is you get to go to Pitt to play them at home.

All this with Sanchez who was never a good QB. He just had a great running game and a even better D around him.

It all fell apart in 2011, 2012 because the roster let Ryan down. I don't care how good of a coach you are. When your QB can't play and turns the ball over more than he completes a pass. And your roster is capped out and very old. It's going to hurt for a little.


Fast forward to this year. With rebuilding the D in the draft with the picks of Wilkerson, Coples, Milliner, Richardson and LB Davis. If Ryan keeps coaching this team they'll always be in games because if you like it or not. He is brilliant defensive mind.

If the Jets keep him as their coach and build this roster. I'm sure Rex will have this team playing in AFC Title games again in no time. And maybe in Super Bowls too.

I don't think i ever bashed Rex. Pats fan here.

I love the way he runs his defenses and players live his moxie. He's a really good head coach and a great defensive coordinator.

I didn't read any of your post.

yup i never bashed rex either I've always felt he was a great coach. but i did think he was gonna get fired this year for the overall dysfunction in new york, but its looking like that wont be the case. good for him. he could be building something special

He's the head coach. He's responsible for fielding the best team possible. He has to take some of the blame. I will say it's hard when the front office is a joke though. The amount of news that the Jets get in general is a joke. Why the **** do people care to report how bad the Jets front office is or every bad decision they make compared to other bad front offices?

Rex Ryan is a horse's ass.

Yup, still possible.

Caulibflower 10-08-2013 03:45 AM

foot. ball.

FUNBUNCHER 10-08-2013 04:59 AM

Everyone needs a QB. Even Rex, which he apparently now has.

God how bad did Mark Sanchez suck.

You can absolutely bash RR. A good chunk of the blame for the fiasco that is the Jets situation right now is on him. He brought the mentality of predicting Super Bowls every year, and then going all in with your roster decisions.

This team in year 5 of the RR era isn't going to get the Jets a SB win. That is absolutely on the head coach. You can blame Tannebaum if you want, but every move they've made since Rex took over has his finger prints all over it. Tannebaum was just the accountant who made it work.

I'll give credit where credit is due, and Rex has coached an undertalented team really well so far. I think from an X's and O's standpoint he's a strong coach defensively, who if he has someone to manage his personnel decisions, and someone to coach his offense, he can be an effective coach in the NFL. He's actually learned to curb some of his worst qualities, and has grown as a leader.

With all that being said, lets wait a few more weeks. Everybody remember that the Jets started 3-3 last season as well. The Jets have always been front runners under Rex Ryan. They're going through the soft stretch of their schedule, and they're relatively injury free. There tends to be a compounding effect when things don't go well for this team. I mean they lost by 25 to the Titans just a week ago.

I think they've done an excellent job in the last 3 drafts, and that is showing positive results on the field. It will be interesting to see if RR survives this year, and if he learned from his roster management mistakes before. This thread however, is laughably premature based on anyone who has seen the Jets play the last 5 seasons.

Anyone who wants to give the Jets credit for being more competitive than we thought after bottoming out their roster, needs to remember that it's Rex's fault they bottomed out their roster in the first place.

I always wanted Rex as our HC after Billick. We didnt make the wrong choice with Harbaugh since we have had great success with him. But I will always be a Rex fan and can only imagine what our D would look like with Newsome picking players for him.

Giantsfan1080 10-08-2013 07:50 AM

I'll never bash Rex Ryan for his defensive coordinator ability. I will bash him for the false bravado he had every year until now.

The only problem with Rex is I'm unsure he can build a competitive offense. Otherwise I love the guy, and I'm willing to think he seems to have learned from his previous mistakes. Time will tell.

vidae 10-08-2013 09:19 AM

I can bash Rex Ryan all I want.

Grizzlegom 10-08-2013 09:55 AM

Or the Falcons just suck?

YAYareaRB 10-08-2013 10:04 AM

how many superbowls were supposed to have won already, according to rex?

bigbluedefense 10-08-2013 10:17 AM

I've always liked Rex and always thought he's a damn good coach.

Best defensive mind in the game if you ask me. My only knock on him is he doesn't know a lick about offense. But there are few coaches in the league who know both sides of the ball anyway. They delegate.

Nameless Ghoul 10-08-2013 10:35 AM

A lot of defensive minded Head Coaches struggle to find the right QB and OC. That's the reason Lovie Smith is not a Head Coach right now. Marty Mornhinweg was a good hire, this offense is a great fit for Geno Smith. Its odd but I'm glad Rex is winning right now.

There is that and the win against the Bucs was pretty much gift wrapped. Could easily be 1-4 and doubt this thread even exists.

D-Unit 10-08-2013 01:54 PM

I hope he gets fired and takes his brother's old spot as DC of the Cowboys.

He is the best defensive mind in football...by far. The guy continually puts solid units on the field without a pass rusher.

His DL is sick this year. Mo Wilk is an absolute beast. Richardson is a stud. Coples is solid. Ellis is good for an occasional double and can stack very well.

If you noticed, Rex isn't blitzing as much this year. Partly bc no Revis, and partly bc his DL is so good. If he still had Revis this defense would be absolutely ridiculous.

Thanks for Bob Sutton Rex.

Sutton was actually a mediocre DC before Rex. But he learned a lot from Rex (self admission) and has incorporated that into his own style.

BallerT1215 10-08-2013 02:35 PM

Rex has always been the man when it comes to defense, but its just the way he came in as a HC guaranteeing **** that has people against him. Plus he has handled the QB situation horribly for about 3 years running.
