Rex Ryan on Jets: 'We’re gonna try to kick the s--- out of them'

Eric Edholm, Yahoo:
Ryan believes he has a winner brewing in Buffalo, but he allowed himself — in an excellent piece from MMQB’s Jenny Vrentas, for this week’s Sports Illustrated — to vent a bit on his exit from the New York Jets.

In the long, grueling, slow death of last season, when the free world knew that Ryan (and GM John Idzik) would go down at the end of what would be a 4-12 campaign, the former Jets head coach said he felt neutered and undercut by management, which had been brewing since the year prior.

The hammer was going to fall hard in December in ending the reign of Rex Ryan and his staff. Rex has been kind to New York Jets' owner Woody Johnson in wishing him future success, however. His new damn football family would make sure of those two games against the Jets.

Mike Florio, ProFootballTalk:
“They were trying to pull away from me,” Ryan said. The Jets dispute Ryan’s belief, but it was obvious to anyone paying attention that Rex was walking on eggshells for the last two years. He’s now planning to stomp on anyone who gets in his way, and that’s the Rex Ryan that not only can lead a team to great places but also can make the NFL a lot more fun to follow.

The new landing spot in Buffalo allows Rex to not only go after his longtime foil, the New England Patriots’ Bill Belichick, but keep a close watch on his previous family. Four of the 16 regular season games now have a full dose of animosity. Maybe the Miami Dolphins will do something to antagonize Rex so that they feel the same hatred that the Pats and Jets are granted.
