Rex Ryan Takes A Minor Shot At Bill Belichick

Rex Ryan talking bad about Bill Belichick. Sound familiar?

The Jets coach is at it again, as he yesterday he took an early shot at the Patriots legendary head coach.

“I don’t believe the one guy up in New England’s got all the answers. I worry about ourselves, what we think of a player and how we evaluate a player. Do I respect the hell out of Bill? Absolutely. But if we think a player can help us, we don’t care how we get him.”

The quote is taken in the context of Ryan hoping that Jermaine Cunningham, and Ras-I Dowling, two former Patriots, will help out his defense in 2014.

I will give Ryan credit for saying he respects Belichick, because you would have to be crazy not to respect him. But at the same time, is it really smart for Ryan to be talking about Belichick again? Generally speaking, when he opens his big mouth, it usually backfires on him and his team.

As for Cunningham and Dowling, I wouldn’t get my hopes up too high if I were a Jets fan. Cunningham never really flashed enough talent to be productive in this league, and while Dowling certainly has some good skills, he simply can’t stay healthy.

I have a feeling that this won’t be the last time we see Ryan open his mouth this season, as always it will be fun to follow his remarks all year long.
