PLAYERS: Rex Ryan
New-york-jets-minicamp
Jets fans may have lost all hope after the past couple of seasons but that doesn't mean they still can't find a little humor in their epic slide into Margaritaville. And the same goes for Rex Ryan it seems. During a relaxing night on the town in Cortland, N.Y.,  following the second day of training camp, the Jets head coach and his staff ran into this fan wearing a Jets' green and white T-shirt with the words "This Team Makes Me Drink" emblazoned on the front. The good-natured Ryan even posed for a photo with Joseph Grinwis — the T-shirt wearing fan who cautiously approached the coach to ask for the midnight shot. Grinwis said he first saw Ryan in the Dark Horse Tavern and spoke with the head coach, telling him how much he loved the Jets. He said that Ryan was appreciative of his support and the effort he made to come up to training camp. And even seemed fine with a T-shirt poking fun at his team. “He looked at it and laughed,” Ginwis said. “He didn’t make a comment. He just laughed.” Me and Rex pic.twitter.com/gmYMNUOJnC — Panda (@L7Panda) July 28, 2013

Rex Ryan poses with Jets fan in funny shirt

Rex Ryan took a picture with a Jets fan this weekend, which normally wouldn’t be a big deal because I’m assuming he does so quite a bit. But this wasn’t just any ordinary Jets fan, this was a Jets fan wearing a shirt that confesses “This Team Makes Me Drink.” And judging by the rosiness of those cheeks, it makes that fan drink a lot. Can’t really blame him, I’d probably...

NFL Rumors: Is Rex Ryan realizing his coaching mortality?

Love him or hate him, you have to admit one thing, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is entertaining. Ryan might have a career in politics because it’s obvious he’s never met a camera he didn’t like.

Ryan says Jets brass on same page

Rex Ryan is trying to diffuse any potential rift between him and new Jets general manager John Idzik. "I think you guys are making a mountain out of a molehill, to be honest with you," Ryan told ESPN a day after Idzik refused to say Ryan would have final say in naming a starting quarterback. "Because ever since I've been here, this is my fifth year here, not one...

Rex Ryan: Media “Making A Mountain Out Of A Mole Hill” On QB Decision

The media would like to know who’s going to start at quarterback for the New York Jets, but Rex Ryan is in no hurry to name one.

Jets QB pick ultimately up to OC

Let’s end the rhetoric when it comes to who will have the biggest voice when it’s time to name the Jets starting quarterback for the 2013 season opener. It’s not going to be coach Rex Ryan or general manager John Idzik. It’s going to be offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Why? It’s his offense. Idzik on Saturday and Ryan yesterday have spent two days trying to convince...

Rex Ryan frustrated Dee Milliner not at training camp

Out on the adjacent football fields to SUNY Cortland between the white tents constructed for fans and the metal bleachers there has been a conspicuous absence. Cornerback Dee Milliner the ninth overall pick in April’s NFL Draft and the first of the Jets’ two opening-round selections has been away — submerged in a contract-driven holdout. Defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson...

Rex jokes he won't be coach if Jets draft Clowney

Rex Ryan has a prediction: If the New York Jets can draft South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, he won't be the coach. Ryan, considered by many to be in a make-or-break season, delivered a gem when asked Saturday how much of his daily discussions with general manager John Idzik involve looking beyond this season. ''It's safe to say I won't be here...

New York Jets fan wears great t-shirt to camp

There’s an old saying that states a picture is worth a thousand words. For frustrated New York Jets fans, this one might invoke a few more than that. Last season, the Jets went 6-10, behind a passing offense that struggled mightily with Mark Sanchez at the helm and a Rex Ryan defense that was less intimidating than it had been in past years. Add in the drama that Tim Tebow brought...

Rex Ryan: Dee Milliner Is Never Going To Be Darrelle Revis

It’s rough being the player that replaces a legend, yet those are exactly the shoes Milliner will walk in, as he tries to replace the consensus top cornerback in all of football. After Darrelle Revis was traded to the Buccaneers, the Jets used the 9th overall pick in the draft, to selected the extremely talented Milliner out of Alabama. Milliner will face a ton of pressure being...
