New York Jets safety LaRon Landry seems to be very happy with his new head coach Rex Ryan.
Landry was asked about his time with the Redskins and doesn’t have anything good to say about their doctors or head coach Mike Shanahan.
“That’s why they have great doctors and they have okay doctors, great trainers and okay trainers,” Landry said. “(The Redskins) had people who just had the job title, but not the passion for their job. . . . I don’t respect the training staff at all. I don’t respect the coaches over there. I don’t respect (Shanahan). I do respect Coach (Joe) Gibbs, who brought me there, and Coach Gregg Williams. I respect that 2007 organization. After 2007. . . . nonexistent.”
Landry was shocked head coach Bill Belichick wasn’t around when he visited the Patriots as a free agent
“He wasn’t even there,” Landry says. “So that was a no-brainer. I should have never taken that visit. I was like, ‘Damn, if you’re going to visit, the head coach (should be) there.’ I felt, ‘Okay, that’s a slap in the face.’ ”
Landry is a heck of a player and if he can stay healthy, he may be one of the top safeties in the NFL.
BEST OF MAXIM
LaRon Landry had some harsh words for two NFL coaches, criticizing both Bill Belichick and Mike Shanahan. See what he said.
Belichick The Scholar
A.B. When I found Belichick’s high school senior picture last year, I couldn’t help but laugh. The Lloyd Christmas hair was just too much. But being a fellow I-comb-over-my-hair-because-its-straight-as-an-arrow club member, I can’t hate on Bill’s college portrait here. And in case you were wondering about the quote:

From Victor Green and his wife to beastly Jets safety LaRon Landry lies the story of a hero that Mike Wallace could be in Pittsburgh some day. Read Jim Wexell's column for more.
LaRon Landry is playing for the guy he wants to play for. To hell with the rest of them. Rex Ryan loves Landry’s work ethic and Landry loves Ryan’s unique and aggressive defense, which LaRon says is ultimately why he ended up in New York. However, the safety said the absence of Bill Belichick during his visit with the Patriots made his decision to not sign with New England easy...

Bill Belichick: This is Bill, who the **** is this?
Bob Kraft: God damnit, Bill! I told you to stop answering the phone like that. Anyway, what the **** kind of ship have you been running the last few months? I swear, every single time I go somewhere on vacation, I get...
Bill Belichick surely had an eye on at least one college football score today. It was Belichick's former assistant against the school where the Patriots' head coach first learned to coach under his father as Penn State faced off against Navy. Bill O'Brien got the first win of his head coaching career as the Nittany Lions clobbered the Midshipmen 34-7 at Beaver Stadium...
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick says he doesn't know how long tight end Aaron Hernandez will be sidelined with a right ankle injury.
Asked Monday if Hernandez broke any bones, Belichick said, ''I don't really have any update on his status. I think they're still looking at him.''
ESPN.com reported that Hernandez would not play Sunday night at...
One of Bill Belichick’s favorite hobbies is praising his opponent during the week leading up to a game. Belichick never wants the Patriots to take the opposition too lightly, so he floods the enemy with compliments and fills the newspapers with flattering quotes about them. On Thursday, the subject of his praise was Larry Fitzgerald.
“He’s a great, great receiver, will go down...
The Patriots lost their home opener for the first time since 2001 with a 20-18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It was perhaps the most unexpected loss in recent memory for the Patriots.
The actual game however, will likely be overshadowed this week by scrutiny over the usage of franchise wide receiver Wes Welker.
Welker did not start the game (though he was announced as a starter...
When Bill Belichick drew up his defensive gameplan this week, he completely omitted one of the most promising, young players on the Patriots defenes. Ras-I Dowling was one of three New England players that received zero snaps against the Cardinals on Sunday in what can best be described as a puzzling decision. Backup quarterback Ryan Mallett and guard Dan Connolly were the other...
If one of the Patriots’ Swiss Army Knives Julian Edelman gets cut this week, its pretty much safe to say it’s because he took out one of the team’s superstars.
Edelman rolled up underneath tight end Aaron Hernandez’s ankle during Sunday’s loss against the Arizona Cardinals as he made his way downfield after catching a screen pass from Tom Brady.

Bill Russell and Bill Belichick are two of the region's greatest winners, and at least one of those champions has great respect for the other. At the conclusion of an extended interview with NBA.com, Russell was asked which coaches he admires today. The question was posed in the context of asking about NBA coaches, with Russell's longtime coach Red Auerbach as an example...
Bill Belichick got one of his answers he was looking for in the Titans game. He found out that his defense can shut down a premier running back with speed cold in his tracks. Against Arizona this weekend, the question will be whether they can they shut down an elite receiver in Larry Fitzgerald. Starting quarterback John Skelton has an ankle sprain, so Kevin Kolb will be the guy...
As the 1-0 Arizona Cardinals get set to fly east to take on the 1-0 New England Patriots on Sunday, let’s take a look at some interesting notes in their all-time series:
1) The overall series is tied up at 6-6.
2) The Patriots have won the last five contests.
3) The last time the two teams met was on a snowy day in Foxboro in Dec. 2008. This is one the Red Birds would like to forget...
Even when his larynx is producing sounds and his lips are moving to form those sounds into words and his left temporal lobe is stringing those words together to create whole sentences, Bill Belichick rarely actually says anything.
And that's why, on the rare occasions in which the cliché-dispensing New England Patriots head coach breaks from the status quo and offers...
