People that are impressed by all of Rex Ryan's big talk think he's a great coach (that list includes Woody Johnson). But the reality is he's more entertaining than effective.
Like his brother, he tends to make an early splash and then fade into mediocrity. But even when he's losing, he'll still talk and act like the biggest bully on the block.
So yeah, Rex will keep your team in the headlines, but he won't keep them in the playoffs.
I'm not sold on that. Rex has had to deal with 3 GMs in his tenure... none of which were any good. His teams were always competitive even without ANY talent at the skill positions. He's certainly a blowhard but I've watched a lot of Jets games... and I think he's a pretty damn good coach. I don't want him coaching Atlanta... I think with a real QB and a decent OC he could be very dangerous.
I never said he produced more than Stew has but Fozzy has been focused, decisive and determined. I haven't seen that out of "double trouble" in oh, about 5 years. Stew is the far superior RB but I'd rather have a guy with half the talent and twice the drive than all the talent and no will to use it.
well we got a whole defensive backfield of "lots of heart and no skill" so at least there's that.
