"Am I happy about it? No. But it is what it is. But I'm not going to sit here and complain about it by any means. I have this year on my contract and then I'm a free agent. They have not approached me, so obviously we're going to play it out.Rick Sund:
I've still got a job to do. That's the approach I'm taking."
"It's been a good situation for Woody as ownership and the organization stood by him and supported him in the rebuilding years. When I suggested a new contract for Woody, the owners embraced the recommendation and I told Woody's camp that after two years, we'll evaluate it at that time and it seems to be working well."They're both right. Woodson can't be happy not to have been offered an extension after the last season-and-a-quarter but being offered or not being offered an extension is beyond his control. Sund accurately points out that it's extraordinary, even in retrospect, that Woodson got a second contract to coach this team.
"Any time a coach can be successful every season and improve his winning percentage, I think that he deserves a shot."Joe Johnson:
"He's all in all a great coach as far as getting the game plan ready and preparing us day in, day out, for battle."Marvin Williams:
"I think everybody understands the situation, even Joe's situation. I think everybody knows what's on the line. Guys on the team are kind of playing for those two guys right now."
