Ron Jaworski says Rex Ryan has Tom Brady’s number

rexryan

Jets coach Rex Ryan and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will match wits on Monday, and ESPN’s Monday Night Football commentator Ron Jaworski says that when the two have gone head-to-head in the past, Brady hasn’t been able to deal with the pressure Ryan’s defenses put on him.

“I think the key to the game is going to be Tom Brady,” Jaworski said on ESPN Radio. “Tom Brady has not played well against Rex Ryan defenses.”

Jaworski said Brady looks like he hasn’t figured out Ryan’s schemes.

“Tom Brady has not solved that Jets defense,” Jaworski said. “You just watch the areas of the field where he attacks. He struggles to the outside, the middle of the field, missing blitz pressures. This Jets defense has Tom Brady’s number. And until Tom Brady can solve that defense, this offense is going to struggle.”

The numbers bear that analysis out: Brady struggled in the Patriots’ Week 2 loss to the Jets, completing 20 of 36 passes for 248 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Brady also had his lowest passer rating of the 2009 season in the Patriots’ Week 2 loss to the Jets, although he bounced back nicely and had a big game when the Patriots beat the Jets in Week 11. And Ryan’s defense in Baltimore also played well against Brady and the Patriots; the only game in 2007 when Brady completed less than 50 percent of his passes came against the Ravens.

So Brady has a history of struggling against Ryan. We’ll find out on Monday if he’s solved the problem.

    Ron Jaworski says Rex Ryan has Tom Brady’s number?

    Cool I wanna call Giselle and tell her to dump the ZERO and get with the HERO.

    lol

  4. sportsjustice says: Dec 3, 2010 10:10 AM

    yeah but if i remember correctly Brady still threw 3 TDs in the Ravens 2007 game and oh yeah still won the game.

  5. sportsjustice says: Dec 3, 2010 10:13 AM

    and oh YEAH! and the only reason the Pats won that night back in 2007 was because a fat Defensive Coordinator haphazardly called a last second timeout wiping out a 4th down stop and giving Tom another chance to convert a first which of course he did.

    @ phinfan….hahahahahahahaha

    Over/Under jaws mentioning how many times “he has seen tape” on Monday is currently at 20. Now taking all bets.

  7. all4patriots says: Dec 3, 2010 10:32 AM

    Rex Ryan has the Pizza Hut’s delivery number and the numbers for all the Chinese takeout places. He doesn’t have Brady’s number. Sample size, people.

  8. meattuperello says: Dec 3, 2010 10:39 AM

    Don’t worry Will.

    He’s okay. He’s just with Brady this morning and they are modeling Ugg’s for each other.

  9. bradysdaman says: Dec 3, 2010 10:40 AM

    Brady will own Ryan on monday night!! Its a stone cold Lock baby!!

  10. all4patriots says: Dec 3, 2010 10:41 AM

    When Jaws spoke to the Boston media he sang a very different tune, arguing that “nothing ruffles Tom Brady”

    so Jaws needs to debate this with Jaws.

    Jaws is a moron.
    Do you hear the way Gruden punks him in ev ery broadcast?
    The Pats offense has changed to a ball control short passing game.
    This is more effective against a def like the Jets.
    There will be no more 7 step drops waiting for Randy to get open.
    3 steps quick passes.
    Also the Jets def simply isn’t as good as last years.
    Everyone is scoring on them.
    They don’t get pressure from their front 4 anymore.

  12. bspurloc says: Dec 3, 2010 10:53 AM

    It is more about if REX has officially decided to go back to BLITZING. He stopped doing this after game 6 for some odd reason.
    and also has to do with if REX allows that moron Schottenheimer to call RUN SEMINOLE….
    aka run KNEEL DOWN now its 3-10 what are we going to do now!!!! OMG! ok run punt.

    oh no it is the seminole again… all defenders to the line… oh oh loss of yards AGAIN. just kneel down instead of this stupid play.
    but of course they are going to try ONE pass play with this stupid seminole waste of down in the playoffs and suddenly think its worth doing.

    Hi REX…. please stop this Schottenheimer lunacy…. LET SANCHIZE PLAY!!!! and BLITZ BLITZ BLITZ!!!!!! or your talk is cheap. but dont stop cuz its some funny s h i t!!!!

  13. pukey60 says: Dec 3, 2010 10:56 AM

    Hey Jaws – Let’s talk on Tuesaday, k?

  14. youngs79 says: Dec 3, 2010 11:00 AM

    I must be missing something, Hasn’t Brady won every game against Rex Ryan?

  15. ampats says: Dec 3, 2010 11:13 AM

    As probably one of the Jets biggest haters what Jaworski said is not entirely untrue.

    But he is basing his comment on the 2009 post ACL Brady.

    As anyone who watched the week #2 game, watching Brady chuck it up to Moss 10 X with 2 receptions and a pick, this is a different offense and Brady.

    It is going to be a great game and the Jets have surpassed my comments and jabs. I have actually grown to appreciate Rex’s humor ( not all the time)

    Can’t wait for MNF in FOXBORO !!!

    Brady will make Jaws choke on his comments this morning.

  16. andyprough says: Dec 3, 2010 11:20 AM

    Any team that can put pressure up the middle can kill scared little girl qb’s like Brady and Manning all day long. Look at the last two playoff games for Brady – the loss to the Giants in the Super Bowl and the beat-down by Baltimore in the playoffs last year. Brady gets scared, and has no answer for the up-the-middle pressure.

    If the Patriots are ever going to win Super Bowls again, they are going to need to get a big tough guy qb like Roethlisberger who can peel off defenders and run around and still deliver the ball downfield. The days of the wimpy “technician” qbs like Brady winning big playoff games are over.

    Wasn’t welker out for the first meeting last year and this year, both of which the Patriots lost?

    Maybe the headline should be: Welker has never lost to Rex Ryan in a Patriot uniform.

  18. all4patriots says: Dec 3, 2010 11:38 AM

    Welker played in week 2, though the Jets cheap-shotted him with a blow to the head and he wasn’t effective after that (probably concussed).

    Brady was focused on getting the ball to Moss that game, for some reason. Since that option disappeared, the Patriots offense has been far better.

  19. jetfan4life says: Dec 3, 2010 11:40 AM

    @artiesliver Hey moron the Jets only allow 17 pts per game, 4th in the NFL so how does that equal everyone scoring on them?

  20. nflwatcher says: Dec 3, 2010 11:40 AM

    Sanchize has played 1 game in Foxboro in which he had 4 interceptions and 1 fumble but let’s concentrate on how Brady is going to perform.

  21. mike32303 says: Dec 3, 2010 11:47 AM

    @andyprough

    yea i guess drew brees and eli manning are big tough guys. mmmmm i see rings on their finger.. ur an idiot what a stupid post

  22. nyjalleffingday says: Dec 3, 2010 11:50 AM

    When Brady gets hit multiple times, you see him start to get fustrated, and all he focuses on is not getting hit. Happened Week 2 this and last year, and it will probably happen again.

  23. randolph32 says: Dec 3, 2010 11:57 AM

    Both of those teams are going to lose to the Bears in a few weeks, so strap em’ on!

    I dont know, maybe that was wes’s brother Les who scored there 1st touchdown in the week 2 game this year ..try researching a little before blasting your hollow comments..

  26. j0esixpack says: Dec 3, 2010 12:29 PM

    There’s some pretty big names… and big guys… who play for the Ravens who will be surprised to learn that the fat defensive coordinator on the sidelines had more to do with stopping Brady than they did.

  27. jetsarestacked says: Dec 3, 2010 12:41 PM

    The jets took a cheap shot at welker? No, more like welker is a faker. Eric smith barely touched him. Anyways, welker ended up playing the rest of the game. Your excuse as to why he got shutdown is bs.

  28. robzar says: Dec 3, 2010 12:58 PM

    The Patriots win……THHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA PATRIOTS WIN!!!!!!!!!! God, even your N.Y. play by play guys are boobs.

    ___________________________

    That was a dumb penalty by Smith. The ball was overthrown and out of reach of Welker and Smith was in an easy position to light up Welker without hitting him in the helmet (which still would be a penalty). He purposely went for the helmet. That’s an easy call for the officials to make, and he also got fined much higher than the normal $5K.

    By the way, Smith is a moron. Just like you.

  30. all4patriots says: Dec 3, 2010 1:19 PM

    hey jetsarestacked,

    Why was Eric Smith fined for the hit, then?

  31. hobartbaker says: Dec 3, 2010 1:21 PM

    Ryan has Brady’s number. 12. It’s the only hat size that will fit his fat head.

  32. mistrezzrachael says: Dec 3, 2010 2:14 PM

    Can you imagine what’d be like in NE if Rodney Harrison still was there…with all this talk?

    I expect NE to play w/huge chip on their shoulder…and win by @ least 10. I recall their first meeting where NE thoroughly outplayed the jets in first half…but couldn’t close w/TD’s. That was due more to their play than jets. They flat out stunk in second half.

    Noone has said this, but think NE’s defense will step up big. They have some excellent athletes, alot of speed…and may just be ready experience wise to play 60 strong minutes.

  33. Downtown Printwear says: Dec 3, 2010 3:53 PM

    Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez don’t even deserve to wear Tom Brady’s UGGs! The Jets have a bigger mouth that Mick Jagger, minus the chops to back it up.

    By the 2nd half we’ll have to listen to the women talking about which team has a better looking QB (yes, there’s an actual debate: http://bit.ly/e3XsDi)
    because this game will be over at halftime.

  34. backindasaddle says: Dec 3, 2010 8:41 PM

    Let’s see how the loss of Jets safety Leonard (there QB of the defense) combined with the re-tooled Pats tightend offense (that’s been tearing up other teams) all pans out.

    We’ll see if Rex still “has Brady’s number”….

    …I think with Leonard out the Pats are going to feast on the middle of the field.

    Huh? The Texans scored 20 at the Meadow Lands just in the 4th quarter.

    You better review those status, homey.

    Jets D is OVERRATED clap, clap, clap, clap, clap!

    OVERRATED clap, clap, clap, clap, clap!

  36. robsterny says: Dec 4, 2010 11:09 AM

    As a Jet fan,I have to agree that Jaws is a bit of a blowhard that plays both sides against the other depending on who hes talking to….Having said that,I hope the Pats do think this game will be over at halftime. Its in the second half that the fireworks will start. See ya on the field!

    …yeah, you’re missing something. Rex Ryan is 2-1 vs Brady as head coach of the Jets.

    I’m not saying this as a fan of either team, I’m saying this as someone who can count.

    Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

    and I agree with Bob Spurloc!! now, because Brad Smith had a FLUKE game with the SEMEN-OLE , they will waste even MORE plays running it.

    If they start wasting plays with the SEMEN-OLE in Foxboro, its gonna be a long night for the Jets.

    If you’re a Jets fan, you dream at night that somebody else will hire Schottenheimer as head coach and take the SEMEN-OLE with him, preferably in the division cuz then you can play it twice a year and have the other team waste their plays against you.
