Rex won't quit ... This is the same stubborn man that trotted #6 out as the starting QB week after week when the rest of the civilized world knew that we were witnessing the worst QB play in franchise history.
HOPEFULLY all of these people Woody or whoever he assigned to lead the G.M. search make it known that if they cannot fire Ryan and bring in their own guy that they are no longer interested in the position. That would be excellent.
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.
This is exactly what I thought as soon as Woody said Rex was staying.
