The New York Jets are on a three game losing skid but there is no reason to panic. Why? Did you know the Jets endured (2) three game losing streaks in 2009, the first season for Rex and ultimately a trip to the AFC Championship Game.
I know, you are going to tell me that the personnel was different and we had a better team, yada yada yada, and that may be true, but I will say this. If Rex can get that team with a Rookie QB to the playoffs with two three game losing streaks, then he certaintly can achieve it with this team.
ULTIMATLEY this season is riding on one thing: Rex’s ability to rally the troops to start winning again.
When things go wrong, Rex Takes the Heat. A sign of a Great Leader.
You can blame Schottenheimer, Sanchez, and wide recievers all you want, but it is Rex’s fault if the bad play calling continues. You can yell at Mason and Plax for poor play as well, but ultimately it’s Rex’s fault if he doesn’t do something. By the way, that’s the reason Derrick Mason was replaced by Jeremy Kerley. Rex is not afraid to make the tough calls. (Remember the Kerry Rhodes benching in 2009?).
The season is young and the Jets showed improvement in that last loss. Rex will right the ship or die trying.
