we will start with these then move on to actual coaching failures that happen on the field.
People act as though the year the Jets had never happened. their debacle and circus was 100% on Rex. No thanks.,
Get Well Soon Romo
All on Rex, his first year they took a team with Mark Sanchez into the playoffs and continually had them at medicrity despite being stuck with a horrible QB.
He did what a coach would do with his franchise and he stuck with him over and over again and gave him confidence that he's the starter no matter what until the absolute last moment. Doesn't that remind you of a certain coach who was just let go today??
When was the last time Rex ran his mouth?? This is what I mean about you guys blow **** out of porportions, he made stupid claims his first couple years, but recently has shut his mouth and just did his thing. He's learned his lesson and its hard coaching in a media like NY to boot.
He traded for Tebow like we did with Vick thinking the offensive coordinator he hired could use him in special packages and be creative but he wasn't and it failed and he's taking the blame. But the guys certainly improved a ton since he first was hired, lets not forget where the guy came from, he was a coach on the Ravens, the same Ravens team that had a reputation built up and he tried bringing that to the Jets with his mouth and thought his team could back him up but they didn't.
Jets are **** cause of their QB and lack of weapons, that's not the coaches fault. He's a defensive minded coach, he relies mainly on his O-coordintor to manage the offense just like Andy relies on our d-coordinator because he's an offensive specialist.
Mark Sanchez literally had like 10 fumbles today, the guys absolutely ****.
Rex and Bruce Arians together wouldn't be horrible. With Arians running the show and Rex just handling defense.
Sexy Rexy's brother has really been outstanding in big D.
So again no thanks to Rex or any other Ryan!
Yeah, no thanks.

I'm not a massive Rex Ryan fan, but I'm not going to really blame him for the Jets debacle, either. He didn't trade for Tebow, nor can he control the owner forcing Mark Sanchez down his stupid throat. In fact, it was Ryan who realized from the get-go that Tebow was garbage and barely used him.
Miggy Montero BelievesDo you?
If we are looking for a defensive minded coach next...then Perry Fewell is who we should go after. Somehow I see Josh MCdaniels as our next hc though.
you cannot give rex power of the locker room... give him power of the defense and tell Meco to get it done. Rex can run a freaking defense, heck, anyone with the last name RYAN can.
Arians has ties to philly....BIG TIES... I could really see Arians the next head coach to be honest. I really like the idea of O'Brien too and if you guys dont think that Lurie would spend 9 million to buy him out then you clearly dont know Lurie as an owner at all..
I just really pray that when the new head coach is announced its not like a ......WHO?!? ugh wow....
Man Bill Cowher why wont you come here?!?! Or Tony Dungy
I really want them to hire someone with head coaching experience at some level. I'm all for Kelly, O'Brien (although as a PSU Alum, I would hate to see him leave) and maybe Shaw from the college ranks. It seems like Kelly has a great football mind and would adapt to the pro level well. It looks like he did an amazing job at building a program around a scheme that won games given the program's inherent weakness (recruiting top talent.)
Unlike Spurrier who had access to top recruits and was more or less married to his scheme, it seems to me that Kelly chose to do it that way in order to be successful. I am tired of having a coach that makes the players fit his system rather than building a system that puts his players in the best position to succeed. Kelly seems like a bright young mind that is decisive and knows how to get the best out of his players.
O'Brien looks like the real deal. The growth in McGloin and the entire offense this year was impressive. It may be a year or 2 early for him, but he has a great resume and I would love him in Philly.
I wouldn't hate Shaw either. He was at Stanford under Walsh, Oakland under Gruden, the Ravens under Billick, and Stanford under Harbaugh. That's A LOT of winning. And he has coordinator and HC experience, two things that Big Red lacked when he got the job..to his downfall in my opinion.
On the pro with-experience side, I wouldn't hate Pat Shurmur. I think he did the best he could in a bad (lame duck) situation in Cleveland. He is a solid coach who should get another opportunity in a stable environment with a good front office (that may not be here...) He served under Saban at MSU and was here for a long time.
I'm not excited by any of the coordinator candidates. McCoy is a hot name, but let's face it...Manning coaches that offense. I would rather see someone with head coaching experience at the college or pro level.
