ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) I hope he rips Marty a new asshole
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) yeah cause Rex has perfectly coached many a games
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) morningwheeg what an idiot....hope re4x throws him under the bus during the presser
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) you want the NFL to say sorry and you want Morningwig canned. You're a clown
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) Gotta give credit to greenbay. That's a good football team
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) f*** an apology. It's not going to change anything in the standings which is what matters at the end of the season.
FlyHiJets Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) definitely reminds me of AFC Championship in Denver
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) marty ranks up there with bittfumble
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) buttfumble
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) The should have made sure he knew who was calling the time out. Hell Rex was on his right and Marty was on his left.
mgjetman Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) Getting lazy with a minute 50 on the clock before half was the nail in the coffin.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:48 PM) The ref
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:49 PM) There is plenty of blame to spread around. No team should lose a 17 point lead anyway.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:50 PM) DUDS - Miliner and Marty
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:50 PM) BRUTAL LOSS
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:52 PM) I really don't blame Marty because it's the refs job to make sure he sees who is calling the timeout. Plus the ball had already been snapped before he even noticed somebody was calling a TO.
mgjetman Icon : (Yesterday, 06:53 PM) Just gave that game away. WTH!!!
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:54 PM) He didn't even blow the whistle until Geno already had dropped back to pass. The play was already well underway.
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 07:03 PM) I heard it when the ball was already in the air
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) but it shouldn't of come down to that TO blunder
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) we did give up a 18 point lead
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) so we fucked up and lost
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) True
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) time to get ready for MNF
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) Well it sucks when you start to feel the jets are going to lose the game them selves
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) the Vick play worthless
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) that run on 3rd and 5 worthless
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) chris Johnson also I don't know what his numbers were but ivory seemed to be a better back
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:13 PM) Marty just picks the worse time to call those wildcat plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:13 PM) they are drive killers
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:27 PM) Problem is the corners. We knew this before the start of the season. I was amazed at how well they did last week and the first half but eventually the weakness showed
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 PM) The corner positions will be addressed next year. Technically we are still in a rebuilding phase.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) we did go toe to toe against a SB contender and we really shouldn't be heartbroken but if you call yourself a JETS fan and aren't a little pissed over a W that we had in our control then you need to go and hand in your JETS gear ... I'm looking at you 115
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:24 PM) 18 penalties in 2 games
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:25 PM) unacceptable
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:27 PM) Geno dropped from #1 to #28 in TOTAL QBR
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) Cutler just got popped right in the chest
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:11 PM) that was a squared up right in the middle of the chest hit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:13 PM) nice one handed catch by Marshall
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) NFL rules state that only the head coach can call a timeout on the sidelines…

Except in Green Bay where anybody up to the third row can call a timeout.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) I love NFL memes
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) Well I will be at the game next Monday night
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) So I will be doing everything I can to help our team win!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 10:15 AM) 2nd year in a row we should be 2-0
santana Icon : (Today, 12:17 PM) TIMEOUT!!

Tomlinson: Rex Ryan joked about punching Bill Belichick 'in the face'

Patriots-Jets is Thursday night and while the enduring image of that rivalry may be last Thanksgiving's buttfumble, the matchup is usually much more competitive than that holiday shellacking was. In fact, Rex Ryan's teams usually square off against New England pretty well. And on NFL Network recently, former Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson gave us some insight into one of Rex's motivational tactics.

Rex, per LT, once fired up the team by saying he would "set the tempo" by walking up to Bill Belichick and "punch[ing] him in the face."

"We were playing the Patriots one time," Tomlinson recalled. "As I mentioned, Rex is a master motivator, and it was going to be a big game, a heated rivalry game. Rex got in front [of] us and he said, 'I'm going to set the tempo today, I'm going to set the tempo when I meet Bill Belichick in the center of the field. I'm going to start it off and punch him in the face.'

"We loved that, I loved that from Rex."

Rex was joking. We think. Tomlinson was laughing about the story and obviously Rex was just looking to fire his crew up. But it's certainly a story that calls for a double take and confirmation.

"Yeah, he was motivating his guys and wanted to jump it off," Tomlinson said laughing. "We won [the game]."

In Tomlinson's discussion of Rex on NFLN he routinely mentions that Ryan is a "master motivator," but there's an interesting line that Ryan toes. Does his braggadocio cross into excessive chatter? Or do his players appreciate him covering up their flaws and concerns in public by routinely spouting off?

And is there some concern about having to back up the claims? The answer to the last question, according to Tomlinson, is often "yes."

"That was part of Rex growing up as a first-year coach, as a first-time head coach," Tomlinson said of Rex's infamous guarantees. "He didn't know obviously all of the things that need to happen as a head coach, and some things you can say and some things you cannot say. I credit that to him being a young coach, but absolutely there were times where we had to back up what Rex Ryan said. A couple of years he came out and said we were going to win a championship.

"We didn't really like that but as players we had to back it up."

The great part about Rex Ryan as a coach is he's got his players backs. Look no further than Mark Sanchez to get an idea of how far Rex will go to cover someone's hide. But the bad part about Rex is that he's spent considerable time with his mouth writing checks that his butt can't cash.

Rex has toned down his act a significant amount since his early days. Maybe that's because of concerns over his job or maybe he started learning lessons about what happens when you guarantee something and it doesn't happen.

The guess here is that he isn't long for New York -- though starting 1-0 isn't a bad way to shake off the critics -- but that he'll eventually end up getting a shot to run another team. Two AFC Championship Game appearances will do that for you. And it'll be fascinating to see how Rex approaches his players and the media in his eventual second go-round based off of what he learned at his current spot.

In the meantime Belichick should probably be careful at midfield on Thursday.
