It says a lot about Rex Ryan’s job security that it has to be reported (see leaked from Rex Ryan’s people) that he will have final say on the Jets’ starting QB. It’s been less than a month since GM John Idzik publicly said that he “would play a pretty big role” in the decision so it’s a pretty big turn of events that Rex will get the call now:

I’m sure John will have his say,” a team source told The News. “But at the end of the day, Rex will consult his coaches and make the decision.”

Listen, we all know that barring a minor miracle Rex is a lame duck coach. If they let him make the decision and that QB fails, the new GM can say he tried to let his coach have authority and give him a final shot before giving him the pink slip. I still don’t think Rex makes it past the bye week.
