New York Jets coach Rex Ryan delivered his usual mix of wit and sarcasm during his conference call with the New Orleans media on Wednesday -- while also throwing in plenty of praise for his brother Rob, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Saints coach Sean Payton. When asked for his thoughts on facing Brees, Ryan said, “Yikes. That’s pretty much it.” “Dude’s a surgeon, man,” Ryan said, expanding on his initial scouting report. “He picks you apart, can make all the throws, all the verticals and things, poised, sees the field, so accurate. Other than that he’s not very good. Extends plays, he’s as good as it gets. “I’m just happy Miami never got him (in free agency in 2006), because we would have had to play him twice. Now, it’s only once every four years.” Ryan later added, “If he saw us play pass defense last week he's probably already left to come here. I have a feeling we'll play a little better than we played this last week -- obviously, we'll have

New Orleans Saints kick off rust, beat Buffalo

Week Eight Jets’ Defensive Snap Count Analysis

Going back into games to look for more insight and evidence is usually a fun and useful tactic, but it took a lot out of me to look back at the Jets-Bengals massacre.  Regardless, I came away with more interesting snap counts of defensive players in Rex Ryan’s complicated schemes and I noted where players were lining up.  For that spreadsheet, click here.  Let’s put aside...

New York Jets Defensive Line Grade Sheet: Week 8 (Midseason Grades)

There’s really no way to sugarcoat Sunday’s performance in Cincinnati, on either side of the ball. Simply put, Rex Ryan & Co. were outmatched and embarrassed on the road. While the defense put together another solid performance against the run (holding Cincinnati to just 79 total yards and a 3.2 ypc average), it struggled to have the same impact vs. the pass. The front four...

Rex Ryan says Saints a team that can 'flat out embarrass you'

If you thought the New York Jets were humiliated after a blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals last week, you don't want to see what happens to Gang Green if they bring the same game Sunday in hosting the New Orleans Saints. Or maybe you do. The Jets did everything wrong against Cincy, falling apart at the seams in the secondary, failing to get a push up front on either side...

Jets remain in playoff picture despite shortcomings

Prior to the start of the regular season, there weren’t too many football fans in New York who would’ve believed you if you said that after eight weeks of play, the Jets would be at 4-4 and in second place, while the Giants would be dead last in the NFC East with a 2-6 record after going winless in their first six games. Heading into Week Nine, that’s exactly the case, and...
