I've gone back and forth on what I think Rex's status really is with the Jets brain trust. On some levels Woody has always loved Rex and obviously decided not to fire him. He's praised him publicly and obviously he's coached up some great defenses here. On the other hand he's been reigned in and there have been reports Woody didn't want to get rid of him with so much money remaining on his contract. Some have speculated that Rex's status is much like Lovie Smith's last year -- let him play out the season before the new GM cans him and brings in his own guy.
What do you think is the feeling on Rex? Is a lame duck head coach poised to take the fall for a bad season before Idzik hires "his guy?" Is his status up in the air depending on this seasons results, with a fair chance to keep his job without doing something superhuman? Is he Woody's guy, here for the long haul no matter what?
