if Rex gets fired, can we get Rex back as dc?

Man, I would love to see that.

Side note: watching this Monday night game made me proud to be a Ravens fan. Man, things could be a lot worst. Go Ravens...beat Manning part 2.

Not sure if he's lost his mojo since going to New York.

Beyond that, not sure if I'd want the constant bickering and media circus with his mouth.

His gone completely nuts. His a terrible HC ..thats for sure. Its unbelievable how he is keeping Mark Sanchez playing after that butt-fumble incident. And now with playoff on the line, he kept the Butt-sanchez as starter only to show them a 4INT performance.

The Sanchez homer and Rex thought it was shotty's problem (OC) and fired him. But nope. Now their offense is much worse. But he just keep thinking otherwise.


Hey...that is a oddly similar scenario here in Ravens...HMMMMMMMMMMMM

Though Rex would probably love to come back -- and the emotional reaction of many fans is that they'd be happy to have him back -- we have to keep in mind that this isn't the same team he left. His players aren't here anymore.

Also, Rex's message might have gotten stale -- just look at the mess in NY even with his fingerprints all over that defense.

You can safely make that judgement after one game? Sigh...

I'm iffy on Rex. He's a brash and aggressive guy who talks too much, but that might be what our defense needs. Our defense has no attitude, and no aggression. He's a defensive genius who could potentially get our defense better. I'm not sure if the pros outweigh the cons though.

I'm not sure if I like it or not. I love his aggressive mentality, but his arrogance is a bit much.

He's the kind of DC our defense needs.

Rex Ryan was great as the relatively unknown defensive coordinator but, now, with the circus following him it's not a good fit.

Also I'm starting to believe, more and more, that the derision and egos in the locker room that plagued the Billick era were somewhat of Ryan's doing - look at his dysfunctional team, now. Harbaugh had to make some pretty drastic changes to fix it. Inviting that back here is not a step I want to take.

Additionally, I doubt Ryan would accept a DC job. He was pretty grumpy about being passed over for multiple positions including this one (whatever you may think of Harbaugh, it was the absolute right decision). I don't think he'll come back with his tail between his legs. There's always going to be some team desparate enough for publicity (because that's what Rex Ryan will now get you) that they may sign him up i.e. Arizona, San Diego, Buffalo

Rex Ryan is not getting fired. 2 afc championship games within the last 4 seasons. Dan Pees inherited an injury plagued D this year, he's getting another year to prove his case.

no, leave pees alone people, i dont think people are following the ravens closely , the D is struggling because of injury bug, there's about 4-6 starters out, that is a lot of talent to replace with PS players, mcclain, ellerbe ,suggs, lewis , smith, webb, and not to mention other players that got IRed in early in season, and some that still have lingering injuries, and no rex is not gonna get fired.

Out of curiosity, those that want Rex back, how long have you been Ravens' fans?
Same with those decrying how horrible Flacco is and we need to cut bait on him.

We were a mess of a team both on and off the field pre-Harbaugh/Flacco.

I never want Rex back. The guy was a virus. C'mon Man!

I think it's too early to call Pees out as a play-caller. He had a decent stretch there with the second string, but now those guys are getting bit by that injury bug thing going around. Hopefully he has some tricks to pull out of his hat for the play-offs.....just sayin.

I also think Rex was a better d-coordinator than a head coach. He turned the Jets around defensively and they weren't exactly stocked with hall of fame or A+ talent like the Ravens. He's a good motivator, but a better game planner. I wont forget how we shut down the wild-cat at it's peak, or the organized chaos that was our 08-09 play-off run.

Lastly, I think time of possession on offense is really ultimately what is killing BOTH of these teams defenses. More snaps for the defense is always bad in the stat department.

Rex is useless without a shutdown corner cause of his blitz scheme which was exposed in da 2007 debacle season when the national media said we sucked end didn't acknowledge our injuries like they do now....media gave us mo excuses before the harbsugh era. That's when we lost rolle&mccalister for most of the season and Rex got exposed.

Well, of course we COULD but why would we want to? He's proven who he really is since leaving here. Loud mouthed, blow-hard, media circus type guy. We don't need that here.

And he ran a very undisciplined group his last couple of years here. He was letting the players call the shots. He also cost us that Patriots game.

No way, too much of a mouth. Give us a healthy defensive squad for a season then come to me complaining about Pees.

I like Dean Pees; I want to see what he's capable of when we have our healthy starters back......

Earlier in the season, I gave this some thought even though I didn't and still don't think he'll be fired. Now, I change my mind. Even though I'd like to see us get a more aggressive DC, and I'm not too big of a fan of the "bend don't break" philosophy, I'm willing to give Pees another year up in the box with a healthy defense. It might be a long shot but maybe he'll get more aggressive. I know a guy who's had a certain philosophy for so many years probably isn't going to change completely, I don't necessarily want that though. Just a few new wrinkles on D and with the play calling would be nice.

I think first we should give Pees another year to see what he can do with a healthy group of players. Yes i know he's been conservative and all, but i think when he gets the starters back, we will be more aggressive.

And besides, in all honesty, i don't think Rex would want to come back here. He really wanted the HC job here, and we gave it to Harbaugh. Who knows how that would make Rex feel if he came back here.

In the beginning I thought it was going to be Rex's year, but as of now I have never seen such pathetic football in the leagues history......

Pees is fine, we just need our front office to find better depth and starters through out the draft. We are not making our first 2 round selections matter, those guys should be starters.

You all act like Rex wasn't Rex before he went to NYC. The only difference was he had more cameras on him now. He talked trash when he was here as DC and will continue to do the same wherever he goes. You can say what you want but I guarantee with this same cast of players we would be a top 10 team in yards, points and sacks. His players respect him and he gets the best out of them while putting them in their beat situation. The question is how many people go back to a place they've left? I would definitely welcome Rex back as I'm guessing players here who have played under him would. Not only that our defenses would get its swagger back. The 2 years our defense had an attitude were the years we made Championship games. I feel players like McPhee, Jimmy, Kruger, Upshaw, Ellerbe and Webb(though he's a star) would really take off.

He's a great dc. He's not a hc. We won't jettison Pees unless he's seen to under perform as the management see it. Given better timing it could happen.
