Ryan will go because Tannenbaum will have one more shot to put a winner on the field and Rex The Clown surely isn't up to the task.
Ryan will also go because Woody Johnson isn't in this for humiliation and that's all that Rex brings to the table. The PSL's are sold. His demeanor no longer helps Mr. Johnson; he hurts him. Back pages over Belichicks rings sells tickets, back pages in clown cars do not.
