For the second consecutive season, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan tries a strategy to motivate quarterback Mark Sanchez.
BEST OF MAXIM
The NFL came down hard on Rex Ryan on Monday, fining him $75,000 for screaming a profanity at a fan.
When Rex Ryan told a customer at the Patriots-Jets game to go “F— off,” Florio said that Ryan would surely get a fine larger than the $50,000 tab he incurred for flicking off a fan at a MMA event. Florio suggested $100,000 sounded about right. It turns out that was $25,000 too much. The NFL…
Rex Ryan's mouth really cost him this time. The brash New York Jets coach was fined $75,000 by the NFL for using profanity while angrily responding to a fan at halftime of New York's 37-16 loss to New England last Sunday. A 49-second video shot by a fan at MetLife Stadium shows the Jets walking off the field and when Ryan appears, someone is heard yelling, "Hey, Rex, Belichick is...
Rex Ryan's mouth really cost him this time. The New York Jets' brash coach will not appeal a $75,000 fine issued Monday by the NFL for using profanity while angrily responding to a fan at halftime of a 37-16 loss Nov. 13 to New England. Ryan received an official notice from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Ryan spoke to Goodell a few days ago to discuss the matter and to apologize to him.
Jets coach Rex Ryan is trying to light a fire under his quarterback, Mark Sanchez. Will taking away some first-team reps do the trick?
The NFL fined New York Jets coach Rex Ryan $75,000 for using profane language to a fan at halftime of last Sunday night's game against the New England Patriots.
The New York Jets defense, Rex Ryan’s pride and joy, has been maddeningly inconsistent this season. They dominated in the second half against San Diego, the entire Buffalo game, and then for the first 29 minutes of the New England game. Since then they were embarrassed on a two minute drive, the entire second half against the Patriots, and after handling the Tim Tebow circus for...
Amount of fine based on Ryan being a repeat offender
During his weekly visit with the media, Mark Sanchez sounded upbeat when he said he thought the team had a good shot of making the playoffs.
You know things are bleak for Rex Ryan's team when a good shot at the playoffs qualifies as pie-in-the-sky dreaming. The Jets have a shot at the playoffs, but is it a good shot?
With half a dozen games left for a team that has played to...

This isn’t about the coach’s $75,000 bad word, though maybe the fine will help even Rex Ryan know that sometimes it’s not against the law to have an unspoken thought around the New York Jets.
The decision to give backup quarterback Mark Brunell some snaps with the first-team offense appears to be yet another “I’ll turn this car around right now” threat from coach Rex Ryan to quarterback Mark Sanchez. We know this because Rex reportedly has said at his Wednesday press availability that he can’t envision taking Sanchez out…
