Woody is punishing Rex, giving him back the humiliation Ryan gave our franchise.
I used to hate Woody for holding onto Rex during the rebuild. Now I think it's the most cool, badass move he ever pulled. Rex can't win 4 games with this group, he's an outcast in the building, his loyal players and lieutenants are gone, he's been reduced to a silenced loudmouth.
Might as well let him ride the plane down, next year the new HC escapes the growing pains and gets a fresh start.
Revenge with a personal quarrel at the expense of the entire organization. . Al Davis style!

haha - yes!
I don't see this as some big personal thing - after all despite the OP hate for all things Rex, he's hardly the biggest reason for the current struggles (which I blame more on front office and the whiff on Sanchez).
It's a practical thing - why bother bringing in a new coach just to stick him in a short-term terrible rebuilding situation?
Why would Woody want to "punish" Rex rather than fire him? It's nonsensical.
In before 350 upcoming posts... around post #250 it will devolve into a Sanchez debate before being locked.
because woodrow has to pay the fat loudmouth 3million this yr no matter what. might as well let the fatman crash land the franchise. Then bring in a new coach to rebuild from the ground up with a new QB and tons of cap space.
All I have to add to the OP is, there is going to be a great deal of crow being served in Dec. As I have stated elsewhere, Rex is not going to just lay down and your boy Sanchez will be riding the pine, if he even makes the start of the season.
Woody makes out like a bandit by keeping Rex. Here are the reasons why:
1- Does not have to pay 2 head coach salaries this year
2- He has a sacrificial lamb after the upcoming 3 win season
3- No coach wanted the job this year. Next year with tons of cap space and the #1 pick in the draft, the jets job is the #1 open job in the nfl
Woody and Idzik played this brilliantly keeping Rex around. Unless Cowher wants the job, look for up and coming offensive mind Darrell Bevell to be the named head coach in 2014.
Rex was working as the head coach of the New York Jets
That much is true
But his ass is getting canned at the seasons end
whether he wins 10 games or he wins 2
The five years hes been coach have been such good times
I still love you
But now its time to get a big time offensive coach
one that actually has a clue
