Rex's biggest failure in recruiting, was not being able to convince Brett Favre to return in 2009. The Jets would've won the Superbowl that season.
This is a stretch. I get what you're doing...you're basically saying that Sanchez had weak numbers that season yet the Jets managed to go to the AFC Conference Championship game, while Favre had a very eye-friendly season with the Vikings, so you're subbing in Favre for Sanchez and assuming it would've resulted in a Super Bowl win.
Favre had 22 TDs and 22 picks with the Jets in 2008...not so sure he necessarily would've done much better as a Jet in 2009...just because he played well with the Vikings doesn't mean he would've done the same with the Jets. And as we all know, Favre was prone to making bad throws and mistakes throughout his career. He was such an unpredictable wild-card throughout his whole career, really (and has the 336 INTs in 302 regular season games to prove it). I can't assume any team with Favre is a lock to win a Super Bowl. Guy played 19 seasons where he was his team's starting QB, and his teams got there twice and won once.
Also, after he got to his second Super Bowl (the loss to Denver), he went 4-7 in his next 11 playoff games (never winning more than one playoff game in any of his next seven postseasons), throwing 21 TDs and 20 INTs. His numbers in the losses were especially putrid (11 TDs, 19 INTs). Three of those losses came at home. There's not much of a compelling case to suggest that his taking the Jets to a Super Bowl win was a foregone conclusion.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!
Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
