Intelligent people would never do such a thing, and Idzik, if nothing else, is supposed to be off the charts smart. Sure, he does have alot to learn, and he seems smart enough to know that. Good executives all know that they are always learning. Hopefully, he'll surround himself with good people on both the business and personnel side to start improving this entire organization from day one.
If this process did anything, I think it finally showed Woody what he needs to do to run a real business. I think in the long run, you're gonna see that Rex is the one dancing at the bottom of the strings, not the other way around.
This is my take too, Rex was given a one year mulligan to turn the team around. Now i don't think he needs to make the playoffs to get his last year of his deal, but the team will need to play smart and the coaches need to show that they can substitute without taking a time out or running the clock down to 5 seconds. Rex cannot lose home games by an average of 19 points, no matter who the QB is. Even if they go 6-10 as long as they are competitive he will get another year.
