Well unless this Jets thing completely falls apart, which certainly is possible with the media scrutiny from New York and like a 4-12 season, I think Rex is going to be OK.
He's a well respected defensive coordinator, so he's definitely going to get a job in that role even if he's axed by the Jets. And I think he's such a large persona that he seems like he'll get a second gig as a head coach. Herm Edwards, Eric Mangini, Mike Mularkey, Chan Gailey, Romeo Crennel, Wade Phillips, Norv Turner all got second (and some got third) jobs in the league despite not doing ANYTHING in their first gigs to merit it.
You don't think someone will hire Rex again in 2-3 years if the Jets fired him after this year? Like I'm not saying that the Jets just become bad in order for things to fall apart, I'm talking like with Brad Childress last year in Minnesota, where players are calling him out and its obvious to everyone that the inmates are running the asylum.
You're arguing with yourself here, Pudge. I didn't say I thought Rex would get black balled. I said his father did. Rex has bridled his tongue enough to keep options open if things go to shizzle. Jerry never knew when to quit carnival barking. I don't think too many modern coaches would do something like the California Trophy.
