The Jets are interviewing OC candidates who will work under Rex and the Jets don't have a GM. Who do you think is interviewing these guys and part of the decision-making process? We might have a new OC before a GM.
And there ya go!“Having been in business, around football for a while, you can recognize talent when you see it,” Woody said.
“I fervently believe that he has a rare ability,” Woody said.
“One of the things that impresses me about Rex as a leader is that he knows where he wants to improve and he’s committed to do that, and I trust him,” Woody said.
Asked if there was a mandate for Rex to make the playoffs in 2013, Woody said, "No. There's no mandate."
BUT....if you allow the new GM to pick the assistants you immediately improve your chances next year. One, we all know the GM will be here so when he brings in assistant coaches, they will be here long term. So you can improve the quality of coaches you can recruit. Plus, it gets the rebuilding process started because these assistants will be able to evaluate the entire roster over the course of a year vice 30 days after next season is over.
Plus, the GM may be able to bring in the potential new HC.
But as usual, we are not making the most optimal decisions here. The decision to let Rex hire the coach is a statement to Rex that he is 100% responsible for this team next year.
We would be so much better off if they just moved on from him already...
