Why wouldn't this loyalty continue with a player that he has praised so much?
Plus, if he wants to stick around, he needs good players to help him keep his job. Would he want to go into his lame duck season without any good players?
If he feels so secure in his job and feels that he has control over Woody, that leads back to question one.
See, it is a logical cycle.
I guess "logic" is in the eye (or brain) of the beholder.
Remember Rex getting pissed about Revis' situation on Hard Knocks. I even think Rex has his breaking point. And again, the knee is a factor in this. Makes it easier to say goodbye.
Of course Rex needs good players. Every coach needs good players. But he also needs a good team. And paying a CB coming off an ACL injury top dollar makes that hard to do. What Rex needs more than anything is to have a great draft and find a QB. His D got by without Revis.
And Rex is not a lame duck.

If Rex was in charge...... first order of business would be an extension.
Rex isn't a lame duck. He has two years (2013,2014) left on his contract.
