After blowout loss, Rex Ryan invokes Dolphins-Bears circa 1985

Rex Ryan

As Jets coach Rex Ryan tries to process the 45-3 pasting that his team absorbed on Monday night against the Patriots, Ryan has resorted once again to hubris.

“That was the worst defeat in my coaching career that I’ve been a part of,” Ryan said Tuesday.  “But there’s another defeat that I think was probably just as humiliating, just as bad . . . and that was the ’85 Bears against Miami. . . .

“I hope history repeats itself,” Ryan said. “The goal of the Chicago Bears was to win a Super Bowl.  And that’s our goal.  Whether people like it or not, I really don’t care.  That’s our goal.  That’s our mission going into this season.”

(Unfortunately for the Jets, 31 other franchises have that exact same goal.  Even more unfortunately, one of them is the Patriots.)

Here’s the difference between the ’85 Bears and the ’10 Jets.  The ’85 Bears already owned the NFC when they lost to the Dolphins; there was no doubt the Bears would have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.  The only question was whether they’d finish the regular season without a loss.

The ’10 Jets needed to beat the Patriots to maintain realistic hope for securing the top seed in the AFC.  As it now stands, the Jets are looking at getting to the Super Bowl the hard way, hitting the road for as many as three games before securing a berth in the Super Bowl.

There’s another big difference between the two teams.  The ’85 Bears were dominant, legendary.  The Jets had cobbled together a 9-2 record with some cardiac wins against mediocre teams, and they potentially have been exposed by another AFC team that, as of December 6, looks to be a lot better than the Jets.

None of it means that the Jets won’t turn it around.  But, as of December 8, the 2010 Jets have even less in common with the 1985 Bears than Dan Quayle did with Jack Kennedy.

    Wow, just when you thought a beat-down by the Pats would shut Rex and the annoying Jets fans up for a bit, this verbal diarrhea comes pouring out? Really, the ’85 Bears? That defense was probably the best of all time… this year’s Jets isn’t even the best defense in the league.

  3. ampats says: Dec 8, 2010 9:58 AM

    Still flapping his gums after being embarrassed on National TV.

    Rex, SHHHHHHH

    Right now he should be concentrating on beating the Dolphins which is not a sure thing and hope that because of his big mouth and the target he put on the Jets that they make the playoffs.

    Remember 2008 Jets fans???

    All Rex is doing at this point is proving he can still talk, even with his father’s nipples in his mouth.

  5. ispysomething7 says: Dec 8, 2010 10:03 AM

    This guy is an idiot! At first it was funny, but now his act is getting old. When the Jets lost to the Ravens week 1 they should have looked in the mirror and asked themselves if their goal was attainable. Sure that’s everyones goal at training camp and through 1/4 of the seaon, but then reality sets in. Maybe it hasn’t for him.

  6. gallopingghost says: Dec 8, 2010 10:05 AM

    I know Mike Ditka. And you, sir, are no Mike Ditka.

    well plugged, Florio.

    Please Fatman keep speaking your nonsense! After you lose to dolphins this week you’ll be saying the team shouldn’t be in the playoffs like you did last year.

  8. citizenstrange says: Dec 8, 2010 10:07 AM

    But, as of December 8, the 2010 Jets have even less in common with the 1985 Bears than Taylor Swift did with Kanye West./fixed

    This guy is a fat terrier who just keeps barking and barking and his strongest attack is to grab you by the ankles while growling.

    The loudest attention seeking man in the room is the weakest. A man of strength doesn’t need to broadcast it. He knows it and showcases it when necessary. Who does rex sound like and who does Bill sound like?

  11. camprobot says: Dec 8, 2010 10:10 AM

    Imagine that, a coach that still wants to win and is keeping up the morale of his team up. The comments i read to these articles never cease to amaze me. You guys are like little children waiting to cry about something.

    The Jets DID beat the patriots earlier this year.
    The Denver Broncos embarrassed the Chiefs just as bad as the Patriots did the Jets, and were able to come back and beat them. Anything can happen this year.

  12. BC says: Dec 8, 2010 10:18 AM

    That was a moronic comment by Ryan.
    The most humiliating defeat I can remember was in 1985 or 1986 (I think) when the Bears beat the Cowboys 45-0. Basically ended the Landry era of winning teams.

  13. 8man says: Dec 8, 2010 10:21 AM

    Well as decisive as the game was Monday night, we still have a full quarter of the season to go. And the Patriots have to play both Chicago and Green Bay and finish with two division games against Miami and Buffalo. So nothing has been decided yet.

    And interestingly enough, the tie breaker after division record is record in common games! Not conference record. So those NFC tilts really matter. I just hope there is no let down in that Patriot locker room, because having to face the Bears and Packers in consecutive weeks when those teams are vying for the same division title is a daunting task.

  14. comeonnowguys says: Dec 8, 2010 10:22 AM

    Wow. We’ll find out in a few weeks whether the ’10 Jets can be compared to even the ’10 Bears.

    The way both teams are playing right now, this game doesn’t seem like the “W” for the Jets like it did even a month ago.

  15. joetoronto says: Dec 8, 2010 10:27 AM

    Everyone knew the 85 Bears were going to win the Super Bowl that year, and I mean EVERYONE.

    It was as foregone of a conclusion as there ever was in pro sports.

    The 2010 Jets, really?

    Take a seat, Rex.

  16. marinofreakout says: Dec 8, 2010 10:27 AM

    ahhh perfect timing for a brutal loss to the dolphins at home!

    there are 3 things that dolphin fans hope for in the course of a season, in respective order,

    we win a superbowl
    someone will finally emerge from marino’s shadow
    we make it to the playoffs
    we make every loud mouth “j-e-t-s” fan shut the hell up in december
    we hang on to our perfect season record

    right now we got one of them on lock (usually we get 3)

    any dolphin fan agrees

  17. andyprough says: Dec 8, 2010 10:32 AM

    When did the NFL start awarding extra credit for blowout wins? The two teams split the season series – each winning at home. Four games to play, and injuries are always a factor. Look at how the Patriots sputtered and flamed out last year when Welker went down

    I think both of these teams could be at home by the time of the AFC title game

  18. grpatriot says: Dec 8, 2010 10:38 AM

    I wonder if Rex is a Monty Python Fan?
    The Black Night scene comes to mind…
    Were he is losing limbs left and right and still asking to fight….Hillarious.
    After the complete throttling by the Patriots, I’ll play them right now, I’ll play them in the parking lot! This isn’t over! We still are the better team!

    All I can see is the dismembered knight no arms, legs. Just a torso…saying come on back you chicken!

  19. artiesliver says: Dec 8, 2010 10:41 AM

    This is going to be the downfall of the Jets.
    Rex thinks he has the 1985 Bears when his defense isn’t even on par with the team he had last year.
    Rex is dumb and very fat.

  20. mike32303 says: Dec 8, 2010 10:42 AM

    @andyprough

    Yea they did split the season series but that patriots team is completely different then the one now. And week 2 doesn’t even compare to the fact that we’re now in December which is the most crucial month in the NFL. At the end of the day I’ll take the guy who has proven he can win big games in Brady over the QB who still makes stupid mistakes. Sanchez will be good one day but for now its Brady who is dominating this league and is the best leader in football

  21. rhythmfish says: Dec 8, 2010 10:43 AM

    It’s now easy to understand why the Ravens didn’t want this jackass to be their head coach.

  22. 4sacroc says: Dec 8, 2010 10:50 AM

    11-5.

    Knocked about by Jags in round one.

  23. prior0knowledge says: Dec 8, 2010 10:50 AM

    Hey! if the HC can’t stand up for his team, who will?

    Rex is a good coach, maybe too much bravado, but still a good coach.

    We are so used to the quiet, calm Norv Turner, Bellichick, Landry-type coach, that we forget the Mike Ditka, Bum Phillips, Buddy Ryan-type screamers.

  24. kenhawk says: Dec 8, 2010 10:50 AM

    Do your homework Florio. The 85 Bears ARE legendary, not WERE. At the time the offense took plenty of flak every week.

  25. JakeDSnake says: Dec 8, 2010 10:51 AM

    Buddy had a big mouth too, and he parlayed it into a. 500 coaching career.
    Though Buddy did win a SB ring as a coordinator rather than a position coach.

  26. xli2006 says: Dec 8, 2010 10:53 AM

    Pretty sure that Bears loss didn’t cost them the division and send them on the road for the entire Playoffs.

    I also don’t believe that Bears team squeeked through 75% of the season.

    A win is a win, but the Pats just flat out exposed the Jets offensively, defensively, and STs.

  27. dolphinphan says: Dec 8, 2010 10:55 AM

    Fail Fatman!

  31. xtb3 says: Dec 8, 2010 11:10 AM

    As you say – terrible analogy. Just another point – lost 38-24 in 1985 NOT by 42 points.

  32. richm2256 says: Dec 8, 2010 11:14 AM

    Wow …… what does it take to shut this guy up?

    Every team should have as their “goal” to win the Super Bowl. If your head coach doesn’t set that goal every year, you’ve got the wrong guy for the job. So, this doesn’t make Ryan unique.

    What does make him unique (read: “disgusting”) is that he constantly makes un-credible claims and dumba$$ statements, instead of shutting the hell up and learning from his mistakes.

    You boast all across the country how superior your team is to the Patriots, how you’re going to “kick Belichick’s ass”, and on and on and on….. and when they lay a 45 to 3 beating on your sorry a$$ team – a FORTY FIVE to THREE BEATING! – instead of accepting that your team was so clearly out-classed, you immediately start talking trash about playing them again, and comparing your team to one of the greatest teams ever.

    Rex Ryan, your team did SQUAT Monday night.

    You have NOTHING to brag about.

    For once, show your team some leadership by admitting how badly they performed, and set about correcting as many of those flaws that New England so thoroughly exploited, as you possibly can. Miami isn’t a great team, but they’re a decent team, and they know how to break down film too.

  33. avrus says: Dec 8, 2010 11:20 AM

    As I Jets fan I say:

    Keep making fat jokes. They’re just as tired as the people who go on their tirades about how bad Jets fans are, yet week after week the only people spewing hate are not Jets fans.

    Jets are 9-3. You can say the teams are soft, you can say we got lucky, you can say that the Red Sea was parted to give us the wins. The record speaks for itself.

    Our division is tied. We’re 3-1 in the division. Just like the Pats.

    We’ll see you Sunday against Miami, I hope both teams bring their A game.

  34. JeffreyAuburnDixon says: Dec 8, 2010 11:27 AM

    “@andyprough

    =================

    The only difference is one safety injured for the Jets. If you really think your Pats are 42 points better than them 7 days a week, you are fooling yourself. Looking at 8 quarters of football, your team won 4 and lost 4. You blew them out in 2 of the quarters, they dominated you in 2 quarters. You get one big injury, and your season is toast, just like the past two years (Brady, Welker).

    My Steelers trashed the Raiders by 30+ a couple of weeks ago. Do I think the Steelers are 30 points better than the Raiders? Not a chance. If they have to play again in the playoffs, its a whole different game – they will probably be lucky if they can get a win.

  36. florioisatool says: Dec 8, 2010 11:36 AM

    You’re right to a point avrus but the fact is the Jets have only beaten one team with a winning record this year. We all know NY teams are hyped in a big way – NYC is the media capital of the world. But it just seems like Rex is more blowhard media personality than HC.

    If he toned his act down a fair bit then he’d get more credit. “Now let’s go get a &*%@##ded snack…”

  37. comeonnowguys says: Dec 8, 2010 11:39 AM

  41. keabu says: Dec 8, 2010 11:46 AM

    I love it when Miami fans bring up that the Jets haven’t beat anyone with a winning record line. How many teams with a winning record did Miami beat in their undefeated season? Not many. Point is, a win is a win.

    @marinofreakout …someone already brought this up, but learn to count. Five is not three.

    I only have one goal every year. That some team . . . ANY team . . . goes undfeated to shut up those loud mouth Miami fans.

  42. hnirobert3 says: Dec 8, 2010 11:50 AM

    He has to try to say something positive to move on from the loss.

  45. qdubya says: Dec 8, 2010 12:07 PM

  46. belicheckyoself says: Dec 8, 2010 12:37 PM

    This is the most interesting and complex mouthing off ever.
    Miami won out after that game. Won their division too.
    Chicago put up more than 3 points.
    The fact that he mentioned the two teams that NE and NYJ are playing this week suggests to me that NE really got in his head this time.
    Chicago won out after that game and only gave up 33 points for the rest of the season. (3 games).
    NE won the conference that year, beat Miami…So if the Jets are the Bears and they play the Pats in the AFC game this year is that another fictional SB for this clown?
    What if the Bears beat the Pats this weekend, do the Jets get an extra win? If NE beats the Bears and Miami beats NYJ this weekend do the Jets still have a winning record, or did the Jets win the Superbowl? Or do the Jets have to become the Patriots to win the Superbowl?
    That might work. May work for Woodhead anyway.

  49. habsman says: Dec 8, 2010 12:57 PM

    Here is what the Patriots did wrong Monday night:

    1) After scoring their final touchdown, Belichick should have ordered the entire team to midfield, lined them up, have them remove their pants, and MOON Rex Ryan!

    2)Line-up and attempt an on-side kick that will hopefully be recovered.

    3)Bring in Brian Hoyer and execute a play action bomb to Brandon Tate.

    4)Go for two instead of PAT

    5)Repeat steps 1 to 4.

    I am NOT a fan of the Miami Dolphins.

    But

    This weekend I AM

    That having been said – I am a Pats fan now and have been for a long time, especially over the last 10 years. We (spoiled) Pats fans are well aware we are living in a golden age and that sooner or later it will end but for now – we have been consistently excellent over the last 10 years, 3 SB titles, now we have the best record in football, we have 22 1st or 2nd year players on the 53 man roster, we have 7 choices in the 1st 4 rounds of next year’s draft, we just gave the jets a well-earned butt kicking in front of the whole country (Dandy Don would have LOVED it!) and so I say this:

    Bears fans – be afraid. Be VERY afraid – you’re next.

    In conclusion – The Bears team that kicked the snot out of the Patriots in SBXX was the greatest team I have ever seen. For Ryan to compare his team in ANY way to that team is just plain stupid.

    I suppose it’s possible that Ryan keeps yakking in order to keep the attention off of the play of his team, but I think his overall approach to coaching is fatally flawed. You don’t win Super Bowls by talking about them. You focus on your next week’s opponent, put 100% of your attention on that game, and when it’s over, you repeat the process. Do that well enough for 16 regular season games and you get to do it for at least one more week. That’s how it’s done. The Jets shouldn’t be worried about the Super Bowl, they should be focused on only one thing – the game on Sunday with Miami. But because their fat pant-load coach doesn’t understand this, they’re gonna spend time and energy this week talking about last week, and how they can still win the Super Bowl, and how they want to play the Pats again. Keep doing that, Jets, and you’ll find yourself the owner of a 3 or 4 game losing streak.

  58. botully says: Dec 8, 2010 3:34 PM

    Since 2001, the Patriots are 3-1 in Super Bowls.
    Rex Ryan, in less than two seasons, is already 3-1in Super Bowls, albeit regular season ones. Plus, how can you knock a guy whose young quarterback is a franchise player, will have 2-3 rings by the end of his Hall of Fame career, and will be in elite company when he wins his first this year?

    Bottom line is the Jets are a great team, one of the best ever, if you ignore reality.

    “Keep the fat jokes coming…”
    I think Rexy was put on this earth to show how far the human skin can stretch without bursting.

    _______________________________

    @andyprough
    You are wrong. The Jets only blew out the Pats in two quarters (2nd half of game one), but the Pats beat them in the other two and they blew them out in 4 quarters of game two. The Jets were behind when the 3rd quarter started in the first game.

    You seem to ignore what everyone else can see. The Patriots are getting better on both offense and defense, and frankly, the Jets do not seem to be playing as well as they did very early in the season.

    Certainly if we lose Brady, our season would be in jeopardy, but you really want to compare the value of a future HOF QB, one of the top 5 ever, to a safety? No comparison. The Jets did not lose because their safety got hurt. It didn’t help, but he would not have saved them. Besides, stop crying about injuries. EVERY team has them.

  60. grpatriot says: Dec 8, 2010 5:58 PM

    You know, don’t compare Sanchez to Brady!!!
    Brady won a SuperBowl in his second year. He has 3 rings, 1 MVP and maybe another on the way? This just pisses me off! Fastest to have 100 wins in history! 26 straight reg. season wins at home. Just broke the Knoll and Bradshaw record for wins and will break Shula’s and Marino 119. QB’s like Brady come around once in a while. What the hell makes any of you think Sanchez is even in the same stratosphere is dellusional.
    I heard the same crap about Romo. There are lumps of coal and then they’re diamonds…They both are carbon. One is a gem, the other a lump of coal!
    Get back to me when Sanchez has at least 2 rings. Then we can compare him to Rothlesberger. Now he isn’t even Matt Cassel.

    I think the real difference is that the patriots young D finally came together and gelled. They’ve done what it took to beat the Jets, Colts, and Steelers, I don’t think they could have done that earlier in the year. Even in the Baltimore and San Diego games, they just got lucky and the oppenents shot themselves. They are playing Patriots December Football. If they come at Chicago 75% as hard as they did NY Cutler will give them the ball all day. (The Bears are awesome but that kids a joke).

    People should give due credit to the 2008 team. I think eventually history will notice that they suffered a TON of injuries and aged out players and still lost on tiebreakers into an unusually strong wild card group. The only team that really dominated them was the superbowl bound Steelers, and I doubt the Steelers wanted to play them again (I’m excluding Miami from this because though they won the gimmick game the Pats shattered them later in the season, when it counts more).
    They were the second team ever to fail to make the playoff with 11 wins, and those were all won through unusual adversity. I want an NFL films on them dammit. And make sure to point out how bad the O-line was that year.

    you know what amazes me…most of the people who write about rex’s weight are fat themselves..

    grow up..

    yeah the Jets lost big to the pats..
    almost every team in the league has been blown out at one time or another..
    so screw you clowns.

    its how they act after this blow out..
    thats what rex is trying to say..

    that if you get blown away.
    you learn and come out and play better

    both Sanchez and rex are in their second year.
    made it to afc championship in their first yr
    (backed in whatever)

    and are 9-3 thier second year, same as steelers (who lost to the pats) and one better then the Ravens (who also lost to the pats)

    in the 2nd yr …how long has harbaugh and tomlin been head coaches..how long has ben and flacco been qbs?

    oh yeah…i still dont hear any crap about those teams…

    so yeah they are not as experienced as bill a check and brady

    but i guess cause its the despised Jets they dont deserve any compliments only fat jokes.

    you guys are unbelievable !

    @gojets

    Some good points. However, the reason you (Jets Fan(s)) or Rex do not receive compliments is because of the BS that we have been hearing for the past two years. When you brag, mouth off, shoot off, and do not back it up, you can expect plenty of vitriol. Big Mouths are generally disliked as witnessed by the comments from just about every fan base on here. So take you licks and quit complaining. You got what you deserved.

    @belichickyoself

    Thank you for putting andyprough in his place.. Brady carved up the steelers and jets. End of discussion. And yes welker was our offense in 09 because we didn’t have anyone else to convert on third downs like he does.. And at home, the pats are big favorites. That’s why we haven’t lost their since 06 lmfao
