Who says he wouldn’t be good on television?
The most encouraging thing that came out of Todd Bowles’ mouth this week had nothing to do with rings or toughness or locker room culture. And yet, it had everything to do with them.
One place new Jets coach Todd Bowles won’t compare to Rex Ryan is at the podium. Doesn’t matter. Let the words of late Raiders owner Al Davis say it for him: “Just win, baby!”
Thirteen months ago, the Jets rallied to save Rex Ryan’s job. It was obvious to Nick Mangold that history wasn’t going to repeat itself in 2014.
Does Rex Ryan remind me of Peter Griffin? Absolutely. Is Rex reminiscent of Homer Simpson? There’s no question.
As Jets fans know all too well, sometimes these hires pay off, and sometimes … well, they don’t.
The Buffalo Bills’ new coach opened his inaugural news conference with the team Wednesday by tapping the microphone and saying: “Is this thing on? Because it’s getting ready to be on.”
While the Super Bowl combatants will be decided this Sunday, this is the hiring season in the NFL. Here’s a look at the strengths of those who have either filled positions or are likely to soon.
Ryan is already a hit in Buffalo. He was even greeted by a giant pizza that said “WELCOME REX” after arriving in Orchard Park on Tuesday.
I don’t understand the dichotomy of the Jets fan. At once you wanted to run Rex out of town. On the other hand you’re horrified that he’s still in your division.
As a Jets fan, I’m supposed to feel … what, exactly? Bitter? Depressed? Giddy? How about none of the above?
Bills owner Terry Pegula credited Ryan for bringing “a well of experience and enthusiasm” in a statement released by the team.
If the Jets have their way, the Seattle Seahawks will lose soon so they can hire their next head coach, Dan Quinn.
The team and the former Jets coach are putting the finishing touches on a contract, the report said.
Rex Ryan’s journey to find a job, watching him pinball from town to town, NFL team to TV network, is case in the core competence of pro football. Is there any?
