I hope he stays and they get it done !!
I hope he stays and they get it done !!
if he really does want to stay here, there's nothing to be worked out. Keep him at his same contract and that's it...I think he has talked to other teams about being DC but wants us to pony up some money for him.
If he wants to stay, then I think we should block anyone else from getting him. If he wants to leave, I say let him leave, with or without compensation.
Call me an idiot here (wouldn't be the first time), but it sounds like Rex Ryan will be the defensive coordinator at least for the short term.
Biscotti has said numerous times he'd like to retain Rex if he wasn't hired as a head coach.
Harbaugh has come out and said he loves Rex, and it is basically his decision (Rexs') what he wants to do.
Now we have Rex saying he'd like to remain here and hope it works out.
Sounds like it pretty much comes down to.....
I don;t really believe that but I didn't want to left hanging after asking for it. :jester:
my question is should we up his contract? Don't get me wrong, I think Rex is worth his weight in gold. I think Ron Rivera would do a fine job with the D, but I think Rex would do better. But since he's already under contract, why do we need to "work out financials?" He has a contract for him to work here for X amount of dollars, only reason I can see that changing is if we title him Assistant HC.
They will likely up his pay as a reward for wanting to stay around even though he was passed over for the HC job. It's a pretty common practice.
Didn't Rex just get a raise when he was passed over for the San Diego job last year? It was a 2 year deal with a substantial bump, IIRC.
Lots of people are overthinking this.
Sometimes what's happening is exactly what people say is happening.
Thank you Ravor for returning to us, your common sense is always welcome.
If I had to guess we'll re-sign him and he'll get a nice extension. I think they want our new coaching staff to be around as is (or as soon will be) for a long time unless someone screws the pooch.
IF AND ONLY IF Rex is Harbs FIRST CHOICE for DC, and NOT the Dynamic Duo (of SB and Cass) speaking, then I feel Rex is entitled to a meritorious raise. Along with the raise, give him an extension, to help ease the ignominy of being passed over for HC, after many years of loyal service to both the organization and the fans of Bmore.
Ravenjoe, and others who have said the same thing, could you please point me to some link or source that says Bisciotti and Cass are pressing Ryan on Harbaugh? Or even that they *might* be? Because it really sounds like armchair psychiatry to me, guesses based on fancy and not reason.
There are good, real, substantive reasons why Harbaugh might want Rex, and we were told Harbaugh was given the discretion to form his own staff. Why shouldn't he be allowed to pick Ryan if he wants, without fans second guessing?
I should've prefaced my post with IMO. I hope that I'm wrong, here; but I just have this weird sense that we're heading down a slippery path here, and we all know where that'll end up. Evidence the Bmore Os. I'm paranoid, I admit. But I just smell something fishy here, and it is not my officemate!
Don't let years of disappointment with the other local team ruin your good sense, ravenjoe. Keep the faith!
:jester: :kewl: :patriot:
With only one more season on his contract, it appears that giving him an extionsion with raise that it would be a good morale mood on Owings Mills. It will allow Rex to save face, and frankly the Ravens to have a stronger coaching staff then at any point in recent memory... Cameron and Rex are quite a duo, as long as Harbaugh has the Ra-Ra covered, we should be good to go. Gameplanning should be no issue.
well then, hear's to hoping he comes in tomorrow, and we make him an offer he can't refuse!
Bisciotti has always spoke his mind (and changed it) and there is no reason to suggest he isnt a straight shooter.
Just a possibility is all. No need to get the panties in a bunch! :girlfight
Do you guys really believe he's had no conversations with other team's regarding their DC positions?
