We’ve been so busy updating player movement that it’s been easy to miss out on the finer things in the NFL, like a Rex Ryan press conference.
One of our favorite moments from Tuesday, which also included him calling this his best Jets roster and Antonio Cromartie a top-five corner was his plea to the rest of the NFL to beat his biggest rival.
“I think we have to find somebody out there to beat New England besides us, I think that would help,” Ryan said. “Anybody out there that wants to sign up for it? Are you good enough as a team to beat the New England Patriots? Forget about us, are you good enough to go out and beat the New England Patriots? I’m challenging the league.”
As Rex is fond of pointing out, no one but the Ryan brothers beat New England last year. (Rob once in Cleveland, Rex twice.)
The Patriot will try to get revenge on Rex this year with the help of Chad Ochocinco.
“I’ve always said this, when it was Chad Johnson, we could never stop him, but when it was Chad Ochocinco, I’ve been more successful,” Ryan said. “So I hope he doesn’t change his name back.”
