    Anyone caught this? It appears in the very end of the CBS story today:

    Patriots prove they're best team in NFL, let alone division - NFL - CBSSports.com Football


    There was a report Ryan was extremely concerned about Patriots espionage, even in the Jets' hotel in the New England area. So concerned, he asked his players to bring their playbooks to team meetings so potential spies couldn't steal them from the players' hotel rooms. CBSSports.com was able to confirm the story from a former Jets player who added that Ryan made a similar request of his players last year when the Jets traveled to New England.


    I needed something to bring me back to earth (and get back doing somethign productive at work), and this did it. :mad:

    Fuming now and hope it drives BB mad enough to get no defeats for another five years.

    He was just laying in a stockpile of excuses to shift the blame for losing. Ryan is a pro at adopting the "victim's" mantle.

    He also asked the players to bring all their snacks to team meetings, but that was for more personal reasons.

    Jay Glazer tweeted about this yesterday.

    Matt Bowen also wrote about this as a common practice last week:

    'Cheating' in the NFL goes beyond the camera - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

    There's probably a long list of precautions BB and his team take on the road as well, but they don't go blabbing to the media so they can go all bogey man about it.

    He should be more concerned with extreme Jets suckage

    It's a nonstory. The Jets got their asses kicked ON THE FIELD. No ifs ands or buts about it.

    These teams have swapped players (Crable, Woodhead) this year and in prior year - I am sure intel has gone back and forth.

    There are no secrets in this league - the Jets know what the Pats run and vice versa. Ryan should've spent more time worrying about execution and less about shenanigans.

    I spy a whimpering blubbery head coach. (This never gets old.)

    Oh, please, you'd have to be an absolute idiot NOT to worry about stuff like this with ANY team.

    But because it's us, I guess it's now newsworthy. And it also makes it seem like its unusual. I HATE the media.

    Looks like the Jets Playbook got leaked anyway. I can understand why Rex took such precautions to make sure he didn't lose it:


    The Pats sure made the Jets look like a bunch of drunks...:eat2:

    I don't think it's fair to hold this against Ryan.

    As a previous poster noted, I'm sure that BB takes similar precautions on every road trip. With BB, it doesn't come across as suspicion because it fits in with his detail-oriented, perfectionist approach to everything. When Ryan does it, it goes against the narrative the media's painted of him, so it seems like its directed at the Pats.

    It's distinctly possible that this is standard protocol for the Jets on away games, and just something that the reporter or his source chose to present out of context to feed the Pats/SpyGate narrative. There's no quote from Ryan saying that he was particularly concerned for this game for any reason other than that it was the most important game of the regular season for both teams.

    Of course it is. Ryan is setting up excuses (OMG spying!), deflecting (OMG spygate!), and needlessly trashing the other team in public (LOL, I'm a professional wrestler in a fat coach's body!), and he got embarrassed last night for it. He is truly an idiot.

    If he's just taking precautions then there's no reason to say it to the media in any way unless you want to get whipped 45-3 on national TV.

    Rex Ryan has no social graces when he wins - why would one expect him to have any when he loses? This is just another page in the Woe is Me book by Rex Ryan. There are tons of things that *all* NFL teams do, I am sure, that are neutralized because *all of them do it*.

    Enough, already. We don't need to know the dirty secrets, unwritten rules, etc... of the league.

    He said this BEFORE the game folks. Nothing to see here. Move along.

    Time to sign Crable off the JETS PS and back on our 53.

    Mission Accomplished!

    Of course. PFT had this posted before. But it doesn't change the douche quotient of the quote one iota.

    Where's the news? I think that every NFL team follows some version of those precautions every time they are on the road, no matter whom they are playing. I don't think that players are ever supposed to leave their playbooks in their rooms unless they are under lock and key.

    Count me among those who get irritated when we are constantly accused of spying and cheating.

    I was irritated when Peter King wrote about what the Colts resorted to a few weeks back. Now this.

    Wouldn't be surprised if the media decides to start another controversy on the recurring allegations of the Pats resorting to shady methods to hoodwink the poor and innocent visiting teams. :bricks:
