Jets coach Rex Ryan ripped into his defense after Monday night’s loss to the Dolphins, during which the Jets gave up 31 points on the night — and 21 in the fourth quarter.
On Wednesday, Ryan was asked whether he has concerns regarding the potential impact of the criticism.
“No, it’s blunt force trauma,” Ryan said in comments distributed by the team. “We accept
that. We always say, ‘You’ve got to have skin like an armadillo.’ We
all know that’s not skin, but so what? We all know what it means.
That’s what you have to have.”
We’ve been saying for several months that Ryan’s big-talking, Captain Lou Albano (RIP, Lou) routine will get even more interesting once the Jets encounters adversity.
