    I actually think this will make our lives tougher...great defensive mind. Time will tell. ESPN has the story.

    On the other hand, his old man was a much better coordinator than he was a head coach. Maybe we'll see a chip off the old block.

    I thought that Ryan was hired by Mangini to be his DC?

    I am surprised that the Jets didn't try and hire Gruden.

    As for Ryan being better or worse than Mangini, we'll just have to see what happens.

    This is the twin from the Ravens as opposed to the twin from the Raiders.

    Unless Ray Lewis and Ed Reed are signing on with the Jets......I am not worried. I think he has benefited from the personal that he has had.


    Lets all hope he has Brett Farve at the controls in 2009.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Ryan is a terrific defensive mind and was a great DC, with a much better track record than Mangini. Whether or not he turns out to be a good HC remains to be seen. Dick LeBeau is probably the best DC since Belichick, and he was a lousy HC with the Bengals.

    Even if Ryan turns out to be a good HC, the Jets are a dysfunctional organization. Dysfunctional in the sense that they have not been able to maintain a consistent system or set of values, and in the sense that the owner and GM have made moves independent of the coaching staff (such as trading for Favre). Those are generally not the hallmark of top franchises. Franchises which maintain a consistent system and set of values and stick to it from the top down, and let good football people make the decisions - such as the Pats, Steelers, Colts, Chargers, and NY Giants - tend to be more successful in the long run. Ryan could turn out to be brilliant and still be sabotaged by Woody and Tannenbaum.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Forgot to add, but the Jets may also find themselves in serious salary cap trouble, depending on what happens with 2010. They have overspent significantly on some FAs and executed some really sloppy contracts, which may come back to bite them - they've been acting like they're the NY Yankees in a league which has a salary cap instead of a luxury tax. So Ryan may find himself in an awkward situation a year or two down the road, and end up being made the scapegoat for it.

    Ryan just reminds me of a buffoon. Not as much as his brother, but still a buffoon. And yes, I realize he has done a very good job with the Ravens defense...but so didn't Marvin Lewis. And how is he working out?

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    ryan maybe good but it helps to have ed reed to man the entire backfield alone and then using the extra player as another lb or safety or dlineman
    really depends how he drafts.

    i bet he agreed to have favre if he comes back and probably one of the reasons he got the job.

    Good signing for the Jets, IMHO. I'm not concerned, though. I am more worried about how BB will improve our defense. We have some holes to fill, IMO.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    There once was another great defensive mind from Baltimore that went on to be a head coach. I believe his team is in the toilet at the moment. :D

    I do think Ryan is a good DC, but how he will do as the main man, remains to be seen. Hasnt worked out so well for Coach Lewis :eek:

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Ryan is a good pick up for the Jets. The problem is that the Jets have no QB, a horrible cap structure, and not as much talent as they should have for the efforts. Not to mention some of their bigger priced acquisitions are on the downside of their careers. Add the fact Thomas Jones is close to the point where he could hit the age wall (as soon as this season).

    Ryan can turn the Jets around, but I think they are already at a point where they have to rebuild.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    Yeah, but between their owner and Corky Tannenbaum, I wonder if the first order of business is to handcuff him. They have at least two guys who would transition well to 4-3, and it might make Gholston go "un-bust".

    I still want to see Brady and Favre on the field together, next year might be my chance!

    Down with the Jets. Like... more down.

    Re: Rex Ryan HC of NYJ

    I agree. You mentioned Marvin Lewis.

    Also, Tony Dungy was a defensive genius in Tampa. He was going to bring that to the Colts. Or how about Brian Billick, an offensive genius with the Vikings. Does anyone remember all those scoring machines in Baltimore?

    The point is that it's all about personnel and your front office needs to be in synch with the coach. That's why I'm glad the x-mas tree is still running the show in East Rutherford.
