Rex Ryan Goes Beserk Again, Announces Jets' Gameplan vs. Pats




According to Rich Cimini on the Twitterverse, Rex Ryan flipped out at the New York Jets' team meeting today.  Surely you don't have to wonder why.   However, what he said was definitely interesting and made me think on what made the NYJ/NEP rivalry all the more wonderful; the differences in head coaches.

With star Center Nick Mangold out their run-game just hasn't been the same.  Mark Sanchez has been trying to pass the ball.  That has led to less ground-and-pound and more of a chance to see what many had already expected; Sanchez just isn't an elite QB at the NFL level.    The result?  2-2 for a team considered to be amongst the top 10.   Which brings us to Rex Ryan flipping out today and reportedly telling his team that they will return to a "ground and pound" strategy.  Huh?  Yeah.

Per Cimini on Twitter;

"Rex Ryan, furious in today's team meeting, tells team it will shift back to running game. Ground & Pound is back."

 

Keep in mind, Rex Ryan would like to be the anti-Belichick.   Super Honest Vs. Super Hoodie.. or something along those lines.   Anyways, he apparently only believes so much needs to be kept in-house.   It's really stunning not just because it's leaked out but because they're going up against a team that absolutely owned the run-game against Oakland; which ran all over the Jets just the week before.

 

Stevan Ridley out-performed Run DMC.  Take out DMC's longest of over a dozen carries, a 40 yarder resulting from botched assignments, and his average was less than 2.5 yards per carry.   The New England defense is ranked 32nd against the pass.   And here we are, with the Jets coming over here, reportedly to "ground and pound" the Pats in their own house.  Uhuh.

I saw film of Mangold trying to stretch on Sunday.  He looked like he was still aching from that high ankle sprain, and I don't see how he returns to 100% by this coming Sunday.   That means the Jets O-line continues to be liable at center and also right-tackle, and that really makes me question how they can possibly hope to ground-and-pound it.
