We're wasting a year by keeping him here when we already basically know he's gone. We should've fired everyone. Instead next year 1 of 2 things will happen.
1. Rex is fired and we fire the staf. Now we're going on our 4th OC in 4 years.
2. Rex is fired and Woody decides that he wants the staf to stay and just bring in a new HC. And our new HC is hamstrung by not bringing in his guys. Which it turn won't land us a real cadidate.
I hope you are wrong. I hope that Rex gets it right in year 5 and The Jets make that journey back up the mountain. The bottom line, Woody loves Rex so much that he wants to give him one last chance to get the team back to where they were. I think if Rex and the Jets fall flat on their face next season like a 4 win type season. Then, John Idzik is going to get ultimate power over everything in the organization.
