Woody says Rex is coach for next season. No where has it been reported that (a) Rex has a say on who the GM is and (b) GM can't hire a new coach next season. I think it's a smart move and shouldn't affect the hiring of a quality GM. Now if either points I stated are proven to be wrong, I'm in your boat. But until then, this was a good call.

I agree. Pollian lucked out with having the 1st pick and getting Manning. His track record outside of that is average.
