Woody Johnson, whose man crush on Rex Ryan was almost embarrassing at their belated season-ending press conference two weeks ago, may not be as enamored with his coach as he appeared, according to former Broncos’ general manager Ted Sundquist.
Sundquist, who interviewed for the Jets general manager’s job before it went to John Idzik and hasn’t stopped talking since, told ESPNNY.com he didn’t think the performance Johnson put on at that Jan. 8 press conference was a measure of the Jets’ owner’s true feelings.
“I know how that press conference came out,” Sundquist told the website. “I’m not sure if that was accurate. I think Mr. Johnson realizes there are weaknesses and deficiencies there.
“He was adamant about how the players love Rex, their connection with him. But then he was like, ‘That said ...’ and he listed X, Y and Z, the things Rex needs to improve upon.”
