He wrote the book with a bunch of foolish comments and hasn't made the playoffs or had a winning record since. You can make up all the excuses you want, but the Giants won the Super Bowl beating Rex and the Jets along the way.
What is the difference? In 2010 he signed Adam Schefter’s training camp bus, “Soon to be champs “. When asked about it, he said: Again I’m not apologizing I just know what’s going to happen. My crystal ball I’m seeing a Super Bowl trophy in there. Sounds like a prediction to me.
Us having bad coaches since Shula doesn't have anything to do with me wanting a better one than Rex. I said we could do worse than Rex (which we have many times), but I want someone better than Rex Ryan. Rex has had 2 winning seasons out of 5. One of which wouldn't have happened if not for the Colts resting starters. So, he was very close to having only 1 winning season out of 5. Rex also has a losing record against the bad coaches we have had.
He didn't have some the worst talent. Maybe at QB and WR, but the Jets have always had a strong rushing attack and defense. I will give Ryan full credit for the Jets defense, but his focus on D has also hurt the O. Winning 8 games and finishing ahead of the Dolphins on a tie breaker is supposed to prove that he is one of the best coaches in the league?
Rex doesn't act like a professional, and comes off like a buffoon. As a Dolphin fan, it is entertaining, but I don't want a head coach like Rex Ryan. No thanks!
Ross wanted Jim Harbaugh. He turned out alright. We had to settle for Philbin, and the jury is still out. Rex has about as good a chance of being fired after this year as Mr. personality. You wouldn't think that would be the case if he was one of the best coached in the league.
