Rex Ryan says there's ''frustration'' over his New York Jets turning the ball over four times and not being able to pull out a victory over the New England Patriots. Ryan also pointed to the ''way too many'' dropped passes - at least six of them - in the Jets' 13-10 loss on Thursday night. Rookie quarterback Geno Smith also threw three fourth-quarter interceptions, but Ryan says in a conference call Friday that he was impressed by the fact Smith showed poise throughout a rough performance. Ryan says Nick Mangold's dive at Aqib Talib's legs near the sideline that set off a skirmish at the end of the game wasn't intentional. Mangold and fellow offensive linemen Willie Colon and D'Brickashaw Ferguson - both ejected - could face league discipline. --- AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org

Patriots Pulse: Rex Ryan’s Version Of Fantasy Football (PHOTO)

While one confident member of the Jets has already predicted a win for his team tonight, let’s take a look at something a bit more realistic. It is always bold for a random member of the underdog (or any team) to guarantee a victory, but Muhammad Wilkerosn‘s guarantee earlier this week was a bit of a fantasy. And, according to this clever online picture, Rex Ryan knows a thing...

Rex Ryan Not Thrilled About Jets Ejections, Says ‘Apparently Our Team Was the Only One Involved In’ Fight With Patriots

Rain was falling and fur was flying Thursday night in Foxboro, but when the dust settled on the late-game fight that broke out after Aqib Talib‘s fourth-quarter interception, the only two players sent off the field belonged to the team coached by Rex Ryan. Ryan didn’t point fingers after the game but gave some idea what he thought of the ejections of D’Brickashaw Ferguson and...

Rex Ryan To Blame For The Remainder of Mark Sanchez's Career

Rex Ryan is certainly not a bashful man. He thrives on attention. He believes it takes the media's attention away from his players, and most players seem to express gratitude for it.He garners respect from his players, even veterans who have seen every song-and-dance out of a coach. LaDainian Tomlinson, a former Jet brought in at the tail-end of his career, called Ryan a “master...

Rex Ryan: I never said Mark Sanchez won QB competition

Hours before the Jets and Patriots set football back centuries in a Thursday night slopfest Mark Sancheztold NFL Network's Rich Eisen that if he hadn't been injured in the preseason he would be New York's starting quarterback. "I won the competition" he said. "There's no doubt." Maybe not in Sanchez's mind but the revelation was news to coach...

Rex Ryan: ‘I Never Told Mark Sanchez He Won QB Job’

  Mark Sanchez told the NFL Network he felt he won the Jets’ QB competition.  According to NFL.com,  Head coach Rex Ryan doesn’t know where Mark Sanchez got that idea from. “I never said he won the competition. That’s his opinion.  It’s not about a company line. Apparently, if that’s what he said then that’s his opinion. Again there is that ongoing competition...

New York Jets Philosophical Differences: Coverage to Pressure

Football pundits constantly harp on the faddish new formations and mind blowing innovations that NFL coaches and coordinators concoct year in and year out. Even a casual observer of the NFL can witness dramatic shifts in scheme and play on a league wide scale. In 1985 Buddy Ryan’s 46 defense stopped runners in their tracks. In 2001 everyone was captivated by the Tampa 2 defense...

New York Jets vs. New England Patriots: preview of Week 2 showdown

Tom Brady versus Rex Ryan to kickoff Week 2 of the 2013 NFL season. For as typical as that will be, Bill Belichick gets to face a rookie quarterback for the second consecutive week in Geno Smith. Given the Week 1 outcomes, this AFC East showdown won’t be a blowout either way as New England underachieved and New York upset Darrelle Revis’ new squad Tampa Bay. So, how will this...

Patriots Slop Their Way Past Jets: Five Things We Learned

We didn't get a lot of sound bites from either side leading up to this contest between division rivals, but we expect that from Bill Belichick. It seems almost surreal for Rex Ryan. The biggest questions coming in all surround the melding of unfamiliar players in the wake of injuries that have depleted both squads.I'd say those questions were answered, though not all in a...

Foodball: Chicken Schnitzel Sandwiches

I’m on the road this week for a family wedding  – before you start getting all up in arms over fall weddings, remember, we leave that sort of nonsense whining and hysterics to college football fans – which means I don’t have to cook for football for a change. Sort of nerve racking, to be honest. What if I cannot find the right chips? Why do all these bags say “Utz”...

Typically NFL teams do not enjoy having a short week to prepare for their next game. With a Thursday night game Tuesday now becomes "Friday" and the players need to be both physically and mentally prepared to handle it. On a rare occasion a team actually welcomes the quick turnaround to continue to build on positive results. Last week the Tampa Bay Buccaneer's Lavonte...
