If poor coaching and the team falling apart against sub .500 teams and division rivals isn't a reason to fire a coach, what is?
I mean, come on. As much as Steelers fans loved to criticize Faneca, he really did make the night and day difference he was expected to. Last year D'Brickashaw Ferguson blamed his woes on having to cover Adrian Clarke's ***. As it turns out, that was apparently true.
All of the additions the Jets made this past offseason fell into either one of two categories.
1. Improvements. Damien Woody, Calvin Pace, Brett Favre (yes, Favre was an improvement over what we had last year).
2. Drastic Improvements. Alan Faneca and Kris Jenkins.
