Very much on the hot seat, Rex does not have great talent to work with this season. He has limited weapons on offense, a young defense without Darrelle Revis, LaRon Landry, Bart Scott, and Mike Devito, and a quarterback battle. The expectations for the Jets this season are low, possibly as low as a three win team, which puts Rex in a seat to exceed expectations. Even if Rex wins six or seven games, I think he could lose his job.
I think to solidify his job with the Jets, Rex will need to win eight games or more. While this team lacks talent, I think they have a chance to have a good season. They have some young studs on defense in Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples, a newly improved running game, and a better offensive line. another thing working in Rex's favor is the Jets schedule. The team plays against many poor teams this season, and should have a chance to win some games.
