On Friday, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan ripped into 2nd year LB Quinton Coples about his lousy work ethic in the weight room, telling reporters that "If Quinton doesn't do a better job in the weight room, then he might have to ... he's gotta compete like anybody else for a job... so, I was disappointed in Q in the weight room in the last day." On Saturday, Ryan wasn't backing down from his comments. "Let him stew," he said, via Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. NFL.com's Marc Sessler writes: ' That's quintessential Rex, brashly using media channels to tweak a player who hasn't lived up to expectations. It's also a sign that Ryan not only hopes -- but desperately needs -- Coples to fulfill his pre-draft billing. For all the jabs at Rex's expense, he's still one of the brightest minds in the game when it comes to wreaking havoc on opposing offenses. Without much to cling to on the shifting sands of Florham Park, Ryan needs his leaders on defense to rise, or the jig is up in New York. '
