New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan had a few choice words for the Baltimore Orioles for their refusal to move their September 5th game to accommodate the Super Bowl Champion Ravens, who were scheduled to open the season at home.
As we all know, they're forced to travel to Denver for their first game of the season. “Well who really cares, you’ve got 81 at home, maybe you could have done the right thing and given one up and then played 82 on the road and then 80 at home,” Ryan said, among other things.
When Orioles manager Buck Showalter got wind of Ryan's comments, he had this to say.
“I think I’d be a little more concerned about November 24 when the Jets come here and try to figure out a way to beat the Ravens, wouldn’t you?,” Showalter said, via CSNBaltimore.com. “I’d think that would be a little bit more of a challenge. I try to stay out of things I don’t know about. Like I don’t know about the NFL schedule and the NFL challenges. So that would be my advice. I would stay in what is my area of supposed expertise.”
He's got a point there, Rex.
