The presser being cancelled triggered some thoughts...
I think it's a cat and mouse game between Woody and Rex right now. I truly believe Rex doesn't want to coach here anymore, but he doesn't want to quit b/c 1) it makes him look bad and 2) could lose $$$. He's hoping Woody fires him instead.
Woody doesn't want to fire him (yet) because he knows now Rex doesn't want to be here anymore. With the GM search process, he's hoping Rex may quit or ask for a buy out. It could save Woody a few bucks. But if Rex wants out, he won't want to wait forever in limbo with the Jets. This may force Rex's hand somewhat.
And I do understand Woody's quote from today how he wants Rex here...but IMO I think it's just part of this back and forth process that's really going on. We shall see though.
