TEAMS: New York Jets
Finally something Rex Ryan has some control over as he will be calling the defensive plays in 2013. It seems the Jets front office is making all the moves, but when the team actually takes the field, the defense will be called by Ryan. He will be going back to his roots as the Ryan family (Brother Rob, Father Buddy) are known for being defensive minds. Ryan will have a defensive coordinator in Dennis Thurman, but he will be the one drawing up the game plan. “Dennis and I worked side-by-side with each other literally for years now,” Ryan said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Dailey News. “It’s something that we talked about and we want to do. I want Dennis to just be totally involved like he always is, but I’ll make the calls (and have) the final say on the calls. But again, the process will be very similar.” “I enjoy it,” Ryan said. “There’s no question. I enjoy the meetings, which I’ll be more involved in. I love it, because that’s my roots. I think that any coach loves teaching. That gives me an opportunity to teach and to be really more hands-on with that unit.” “One thing I know for sure about this football team — since I’ve been here and as long as I’ll ever be here — is we will be one of the premier defenses in the league,” Ryan said. “The Jet way is playing great defense.”         var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

The Jets are on a long-term rebuilding plan, and Idzik...

Rex Ryan Gives Sanchez the Nod at Quarterback, But Stressed That the Jets starting QB position Will Be an “Open Competition”
