Rex Ryan says he’ll tone down trash talk before latest “Ryan Bowl”

Rex Ryan AP

Jets coach Rex Ryan surprisingly seemed to tone down the trash talk before his latest AFC Championship loss, a decision that got criticized some.   (We don’t believe it makes a difference.)

He’s also going to stay relatively quiet about the 2011 season opener against the Cowboys, and it’s for a reason no one could criticize.

Ryan vowed on Tuesday to treat the latest “Ryan Bowl” against his brother Rob differently because it will be played on the tenth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.  Ryan doesn’t want to disrespect the somber occasion, even if he’s looking forward to the game.

“I feel honored that we’re going to be playing right there in our stadium,” Ryan told reporters Tuesday night via the Newark Star-Ledger. “It’s obviously going to be an emotional night for everybody, not just in New York/New Jersey, but in the whole country.”

The more we think about it, the more we simply can’t believe the NFL would allow this game and the one in Washington D.C. earlier that day to be canceled because of greed.

No one is that short-sighted.

    one of the few times Rex opens his mouth and something respectable comes out. Truly hope he sticks to it…

    the event and the game are way bigger than any one storyline for that week.

    Rex staying quiet will be quite a feet.

    “The more we think about it, the more we simply can’t believe the NFL would allow this game and the one in Washington D.C. earlier that day to be canceled because of greed.”

    I don’t think the NFL has all of the power to determine if these or any other games are canceled. That rests in the hands of the players and the owners and their ability to come to an agreement. The date is strictly coincidental and I promise you no one in the mediation is thinking about the date of opening weekend as a reason to come to an agreement alone.

    “No one is that short-sighted.”

    The players dont care about the history of the game, the future of the game or the fans…all they care about is “ME and MY MONEY”…so I wont be surpised at all if they dont care about the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

    And to justify my “they dont care”. For those of you that it hasnt clicked with, this legal battle if succesful will kill the NFL as we know it. 32 seperate business, no different than IBM, HP, Dell. No collaborative rules, no draft, no revenue sharing. Nothing. The rich feast and the poor famine. A kicker can make $40,000 and a QB can make $200 million. Buffalo can fall of the map and Dallas can sign the top 5 prospects coming out of college.

    They dont care about us or the game. They care about themselves only. and people like that dont certiantly dont care about a symbolic event like the 10th anniversary of a tradgedy.

    Its not only the NFL allowing the game to be cancelled. the players also have a part in it

    What a fat blowhard toe sucking dbag…….All of a sudden, he’s this great American Patriot……..Give me a break

  8. robzar says: Apr 20, 2011 11:49 AM

    Any reason to keep his fat yap shut sounds like a good reason to me.

    That being said, the next time Rexy keeps his mouth shut will be the first time.Maybe instead of anouncing to the world that he’s going to put a sock in it(pun intended) for one day, he should have just done it.

    I don’t see that happening at all.

    Please don’t use the word Patriot and Rex Ryan in the same sentance its sickening for multiple reasons!!!!

    Nobody who plays in the NFL is ever going to earn $40,000 a year!!!!!

  14. jameswestphal says: Apr 20, 2011 12:23 PM

    Loser of this game has to foot the bill when they go out to dinner.

  15. Kave Krew says: Apr 20, 2011 12:50 PM

    I can see it now…….

    Conf room……in DC…….NFL and NFLPA……11th hour…..

    Mediator: “ok boys, it looks like we are at an impasse here and if we walk away now, the first game will be immediately cancelled”

    NFL: ” well, the Sept 11 games at NYC and DC are very important to us and the country, so we’ll accept the inferior offer to allow the games to be played”

    NFLPA: ” no, WE accept the inferior offer so these games can be played. If anyone is going to take it up the beep, it’s us. WE invented taking it up the beep.”

    @ dolphin80;
    What else is he supposed to say regarding the question HE was asked? When your fish start winning instead of stinking up the place, then you can point fingers …moron!

    Too bad fish and cheatriot fans can’t act the same. I love how they knock Rex for speaking his mind as they themselves do much more frequently.

    Uh, yes, they are that short-sighted.

    The game and all games should be canceled for a day of reflection on haw 12 men armed only with box cutters could have brought our nation to the point it is now. We have become so weak and care more about a game, then a economy and lives shattered, freedoms, liberties and privacy lost, endless wars with no hope of ever knowing when they are won, and a new imperial power, China, replacing us as the most important and respected nation in the world. We are seeing the fall of America, at the hands of 12 terrorist who believed in something more important to them, then if their team won on any given Sunday. How did this happen? Yet we would rather spend more time think about a game on that day, then thinking about our country. Shame on us. We have become fat and lazy and stupid, and we have no one to blame but ourselves.

    Maybe he should Tone down on his weight before he becomes his own NY staduim. Least he blows enough hot air to keep his fans warm. And there wont ever be a belt large enough to keep a LOCK OUT on him!

    They could really do more justice to the memory of the people who were killed on 9/11 by holding a proper inquest into the American Govt’s complicity in blowing up their own towers.

    Rex Ryan keeping his fat oafish mouth shut for once doesn’t really qualify as honoring those who died.

  23. gamedaytrashtalkdotcom says: Apr 20, 2011 1:38 PM

    A little trash talk doesn’t hurt anyone, especially when the one doing the talking loses.

  24. scoops1 says: Apr 20, 2011 2:36 PM

    Let me know if REX trades in his Jets hat for an NYPD hat for that opening game….then maybe i will believe is BSing around

    Yea because it’s obviously worked so well in the past

    I suggest the two of you take a history class.

    I suggest you spend a little more time on your ‘retorts’ – some lame quip about a ‘history class’ earmarks you as intellectually lazy.

    Just the type of person, in fact, that Govt’s across the world love having among their populace.

    Tell that to the families of the victims, the ones who pushed the government to investigate when they didn’t buy the stories they had been told, based on overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

    or in your language: Baaaaaa baaaa baaaaaaa.

    No way. Someone tell this Bag of Fat to keep on running his mouth.

    @3Octavefart

    Go have another look at the towers coming down.

    Then go look at and clip of a building being demolished with explosives.

    I have no idea what your background is, but a basic grasp of engineering principles will tell you that buildings don’t collapse straight down floor-by-floor without any sort of resistance.

    There is plenty of evidence out there, if you look for it, i’m just listing an example that is the easiet to grasp.

    @johnnyshore
    And what history lesson should I learn. I was in a VA hospital when 9-11 occurred. There were three men in each plane armed with box cutters, but the door to the pilot’s cabin could not lock, it was too expensive to be required, the airline industry said. So they terrorized the plane crew on three planes, and the fourth heard what happened to the others and defended themselves. They died but they kept the terrorists from accomplishing their mission. Look it up, you might be amazed. Those twelve men with box cutters changed the course of history, and not in a good way. Don’t you realize their terrorist attack worked perfectly, they accomplished exactly what they wanted to. America is diminished, and every night their leader laughs at us, before he goes to sleep.
