Rex Ryan just finished with his press conference and was wearing a Jets hat with Ping stripes for Cancer awareness this week. I missed the beginning of the video, but was able to back track on the beat reporter’s tweets.
The Highlights include:
Mangold and Cromartie did not practice today. Rex is hopeful both can play but stated that Cro is ahead of Mangold.

Rex address Aaron Maybin Saying “we kind of liked what we saw”. He states that there is a possibility he will be active for the Ravens game.

Rex said that if Kyle Wilson will get the start if Cromartie isn’t ready for action.
Rex hasn’t though much about returning to Baltimore but says that he’s still bitter for not getting the head coaching job.
Rex on Baltimore: “Was I bitter about not getting the head coaching job? Yeah.” #Jets9/28/11 2:48 PM
Rex addressed the pass to rush ratio and said that it has little to do with playing from behind so much. He stated that he will NOT give up on the running game.
Ryan said it’s “alarming” that the Jets have been 31st in the league in rush defense. Wow.
Rex on Jets run defense being bottom of the league: “That’s a number that worries me.” #Jets9/28/11 2:53 PM
Rex was asked about Jason Taylor’s comments about him saying Chad Henne is better than Mark Sanchez. He said “I’d keep Mark Sanchez”.
Rex continues to rave about Mark’s performance in Oakland. That isn’t realistic. He is afraid to EVER say anything bad about his QB – ever.
