Two months later, Jets coach Rex Ryan is still relishing his playoff win over the Patriots — and attributing it largely to his own game plan against Tom Brady.
“We mixed it on him. We mixed coverages and all that,” Ryan said. “I think we had a great plan and Tom Brady is as good as it gets at quarterback.”
Ryan also makes no secret that he takes a lot of pride in outwitting Bill Belichick.
“I feel like at times we’re only team that can beat him for whatever reason,” Ryan said. “They lost three game last year. Two to us and one to my brother.”
Belichick didn’t attend the coaches’ breakfast where Ryan made his comments. But I’ve got a feeling Belichick will hear about what Ryan said. And remember it.
