New York, meet MetaRex.
“If we don’t win this game, it’s going to fall on one person—and that’s the way it should be,” Ryan said on Tuesday. “Right on top of me… and that’s fine. And when we win, it’ll be about the Jets and that’s where I want the attention to be… If we lose, it’s coming right down on me and I can handle it.”
Ryan did this last year with the Patriots, but didn’t explain his logic leading up to the postseason game. Then when the team won, Rex Ryan disavowed that he was the reason why. Days later, he explained this process to the press leading up to the Steelers game — that he basically used the press to his advantage to rile up the Patriots, and use the press as his bear trap.
So this year, in a similar situation with the Giants, he’s making it all about him – the difference is that he’s telling us the process by which he’s making it all about him! How can you not love that?
It’s like he’s a Russian nesting doll of bravado!!!
