Rex Ryan has talked more than his share of crap since becoming the head coach of the Jets. The “big old joker” had a war of words with Dolphins LB Channing Crowder in the offseason that ignited more hatred between the Jets and Dolphins. Suffice it to say, he’s not letting up in the second matchup between the teams. When asked about the Dolphins being without cornerback Will Allen, Ryan showed no sympathy saying “boo hoo hoo”, while referencing his own team’s injuries. Joey Porter was unhappy with Ryan’s response and here’s what Rex said in return:
“I don’t feel sorry for them losing Will Allen. Obviously, I don’t like it for any player to be hurt, but if they’re looking for sympathy because Will Allen is out of the game, well, we’ve got Kris Jenkins out, and we’ve got Leon Washington out for the season, two guys that are Pro Bowl players.
“No disrespect to Will Allen, but I don’t think he’s going to make a Pro Bowl anytime soon. He’s a decent player, but whatever.”
The good thing about guys like Ryan is that he speaks his mind and doesn’t mix his words. I’d much rather have guys who are truthful than guys who lie and mislead. So what if he has a big mouth? He takes the blame when his team doesn’t perform well and he does nothing but express confidence in his boys. Plus, he’s right — injuries are a big part of the game and everyone has them. The only thing else I could ask for is a steel cage match between Rex and either Crowder or Porter. Maybe Porter since Crowder’s too hurt to play in this one. Now that would be one hell of a match.Google+
