Rex Ryan just can’t help himself. He’s always going to open his mouth to cause some kind of ruckus intentional or not, but it seems to always take pressure off of his team when going into a big game. Rex said he would have not ONE ring like he predicted in New York, but a “couple” if he had gotten the HC job in San Diego. The Jets play the 4-1 Chargers at MetLife Stadium this week.
What’s un-Rex like is that he then back tracked and reportedly called up Norv Turner, the current HC, to make sure he knew the comments were more for Rex’s ego and less about a dig on Norv.
“Well, I think I would have had a couple of rings,” Ryan said with a laugh on a conference call with the San Diego media Wednesday. “I’m telling you, those teams were loaded. There’s no question about it.
“But things happen for a reason. Obviously, Norv Turner has done a great job there, and A.J. (Smith, the Chargers’ general manager) and everybody. That’s a great franchise. He (Turner) was probably the best guy for the job at that time.”
