The reasoning behind your disagreement on this point really makes no sense.
First, Rex has 2 years left on his contract. If you think Woody values "stability" above all else, then he wouldve extended Rex. Woody didn't, which means that Rex could easily be fired after next season with only 1 year on his deal and the cost not being prohibitive.
Second, Coughlin was lame duck TWICE with the Giants. He got a contract extension after his final year of his contract, both being championship years. Coughlin was set to be let go both times if his teams didn't produce in the final years of his deals.
Thus, if Woody is really having "Giants-envy" then he would only extend Rex after the final year of his contract and only if the team had a good year. In that instance, the Jets job wouldn't be bad because Rex is here. He only stays if the team gets better with him as HC.
