After sticking his foot in his mouth about how many rings he’d have if he coached the Chargers, Jets coach Rex Ryan has promised not to talk any more about Super Bowl rings. But Ryan is still Ryan, and that means he’s still talking. And after having a day to reflect on Sunday’s win over…
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Florham Park, N.J. - Just two weeks ago the Jets season seemed to be spiraling out of control. Fans were sending out their 'the sky is falling' warning signals and many members of the media were gloating about how Rex Ryan had 'lost' his team and his 'big mouth' was going to be the end of the Jets 2011 season. But a funny thing happened in these last two...
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Rex Ryan thinks his New York Jets secondary is second to none, no matter what anyone thinks....
The day after the Ravens dismantled the Jets , Rex Ryan knew he made a mistake and was ready to admit it.
Ryan realized his team had to get back to running the ball the way it had in his first two seasons as head coach. He met with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and then with the team to tell them that they were going back to Ground and Pound.
Three weeks later, that...
For much of this season, the Jets' "ground-and-pound" mantra, which formed the basis for their success in the previous two seasons under Rex Ryan, seemed a thing of the past. Rex's dad, Buddy, in his heyday in the NFL, would have described the Jets' offense as "chuck-and-duck."

This was the team that Rex Ryan kept barking like a carnival barker that the Jets would be sooner or later. This was the game the Jets all said they had in them, one finally in the hands of Kyle Wilson in the fourth quarter, when Wilson got one more interception off Philip Rivers and MetLife Stadium got loud enough to be heard in Foxborough.
The New York Jets defense has problems and shortcomings, as any unit in the NFL does. However, thanks to Rex Ryan and Mike Pettine’s ability to gameplan on a weekly basis they can still come up with big time performances, which will allow the Jets to remain a playoff contender throughout the rest of the year.
One of the other reasons for optimism with the Jets defense in their...

Today, the Jets vs Chargers matchup at 1PM. It’s a huge game for the Jets who are at a crucial point in their season, especially with all the negative media attention brought about by Rex Ryan and “feuding players”.

The swagger is just part of the DNA of the Jets now, LaDainian Tomlinson said. Wins, losses, no matter the record, the Jets are going to have that swagger. Our coach is Rex Ryan and they say you are a product of your head coach. We certainly are. That confidence is never lacking, Tomlinson said.
