Rex Ryan hopes Ryan Fitzpatrick leaves Jets
Rex Ryan can’t help but to speak his mind on what the New York Jets are doing, and he hopes they lose Ryan Fitzpatrick.
The Bills coach was full of praise for Fitzpatrick when speaking about the quarterback at the NFL owners’ meetings during the week.
“I hope he goes somewhere else, I do,” Ryan said, via ESPN’s Rich Cimini. “He’s tougher than hell. What’s lost in it is, he might have played poorly against us — it might have been a bad day (in Week 17) — but I think they won five straight with him and he was lighting it up, probably the most yards in the history of that franchise. We’ll see. Like I said, I hope they lose him.”
Fitzpatrick was 102 yards short of the “most yards in the history of that franchise,” but he did have a very good season.
Still, what’s Rex up to here? You know he loves getting the better of the his former team – remember how he reacted when his Bills beat them in East Rutherford last season? He’s had plenty of success against Fitzpatrick in his career, but he’s probably hoping that the Jets get left in the dust at the quarterback position and have to throw someone like Mike Glennon – or even Geno Smith – out to the wolves. Can you blame him?
