Shaun Ellis doesn’t feel like Rex Ryan respects him

Jets defensive end  Ellis stands over Patriots quarterback Brady after sacking him during their AFC Divisional NFL playoff football game in Foxborough AP

Jets coach Rex Ryan didn’t wish defensive end Shaun Ellis well in New England on Sunday, but he did mention that he respects Ellis.  The longtime Jet isn’t buying it.

“I have a lot of respect for the guy, obviously. It seems like it’s not mutual. I respect him,” Ellis told Patriots reporters Monday.

Ellis may have a point. The Jets only offered a veteran’s minimum c0ntract, and that’s how you really show respect.

Speaking on NFL Live Monday, Ross Tucker said the Jets had concerns Ellis would be a bad influence on youngsters Kenrick Ellis and Muhammad Wilkerson. Tucker said there was a feeling that Ellis wasn’t totally with the program and didn’t practice hard.  Those concerns were expressed to Tucker before Ellis jumped ship.

The lack of a decent offer to Ellis from the Jets says a lot more than this press conference back and forth.

    So what. Most of these athletes have no idea what that word actually means even though it is a huge deal to them.

    Then use it on the field and show him why he should respect you. Motivate yourself.

  4. jetsfan80 says: Aug 8, 2011 5:27 PM

    Shut up Shaun Ellis! Go play up in New England and be proud of being a traitor. And anyone saying he isn’t I’ll use Andy Pettitte as an example. When he signed with Houston, Boston offered him a better deal but said he could not sign with the Red Sox and do that to Yankees fans. And, the Yankees disrespected him and kicked him to the curb back then too. Shaun Ellis, I wish nothing but the worst on the football field for you

    I think Ryan’s expanded comments about Ellis demonstrated his true feelings more than some twitter excerpt. If the Jets intended to use Ellis as a mentor, that shows they had great respect for his leadership. The pats have shown they are bringing in a boatload of DL for training camp/preseason to see who sticks. Ellis should reveal too much about the Jets before the cuts – he may find the Turk too soon.

    Apparently, the answer is about $3million. Don’t complain, he is entitled to make money. The Jets had the right to make him a better offer.

    Maybe the Jets are strapped for cap space. Maybe they aren’t. I can’t say I’m up on that. However, a vet min deal says they don’t really care too much about keeping him.

    Ryan wished him Health,said the guy is a great football player. I don’t know what else Ellis wants. The press is just turning this into a crap fest by only printing the “Ryan dosen’t wish Ellis well” BS.

    Ellis was a great player for the Jets. Love the guy and still wish he was with us but its time to move on.

  16. toddlvin says: Aug 8, 2011 6:19 PM

    Ill say it again…the only reason Ellis had a “great ” playoff game against the Pats last year was becasue Brady had no one to throw to…and after 6-8 seconds, the pocket finally collapsed and Ellis got his sacks…these were not great moves past a DE that got him in Bradys face…watch the tape…

    He was WAY over paid by the Pats!

    Just curious, is that a 2 way street for you? Do you also have zero respect for “traitors” like Curtis Martin and Roger Clemons, just to name a few??? I am willing to bet you dont feel the same way. You loved Clemons when he jumped at the opportunity to dawn the pinstripes, and you loved Curtis Martin, arguably the greatest Jet of all time. So stop your whining about traitors until you boycot all traitors, including the ones that jump ship from Boston/New England to New York/New Jersey

  22. frankiefiveangels says: Aug 8, 2011 6:45 PM

    I’m a Patriots fan and have no use for Ryan but I think Ellis is wrong. Ryan does respect Shaun Ellis but Ryan’s need to talk smack about the Patriots got in the way of showing respect for Ellis. Ryan is like Obama, he always needs to blame or trash talk the rivals in order to show his base of support what a little tough guy he is. Don’t take it personal Shaun, some people always need a script.

    (1) Most Jets fans HATED Jason Taylor even after he got here.

    (2) The Taylor situation is not comparable because the Dolphins traded him in 2007 and then didn’t offer him a contract to come back after 2008. The Jets offered Ellis a contract to come back.

  24. nfldaddy says: Aug 8, 2011 7:08 PM

    You Jets fans and your coach are a joke. You act like you offered him a comparable contract!

    Just because you can’t manage your salary cap so that you can pay people what they are worth, don’t blame players for leaving.

    Your offer was insulting before Rex even opened his fat cupcake laden mouth.

    I hate both teams, but it’s easy to see who has the better organization from the top down.

  25. skylark70455 says: Aug 8, 2011 7:17 PM

    Cracks in the foundation of the house of cards Ryan has constructed in Jersey. Only thing holding it together this long has been bombast and pure dumb luck.

    I’m telling you guys… it’s over. Expect an epic implosion out of the Jets this year. 3rd place team in this division, at BEST.

  26. skylark70455 says: Aug 8, 2011 7:25 PM

    green41563 says: “(2) The Taylor situation is not comparable because the Dolphins traded him in 2007 and then didn’t offer him a contract to come back after 2008. ”

    Wrong 3 x…

    Taylor was dealt in 2008 (the first of the Parcells trifecta front office).

    Taylor played for the Redskins in 2008, and the Dolphins in 2009.

    Taylor was offered one of those famous Parcells post-it note contract extension offers at the end of the 2009 season…. but being 50 times smarter than Ricky Williams he insisted his agent had to handle those matters – which pissed Parcells off. the Dolphins basically told Taylor after that… they would revisit an offer to him AFTER the draft. Taylor’s agent then solicited an offer from the Jets, which Taylor accepted prior to the draft.

    Long story short… Ellis vs. Taylor is an apples to apples comparison.

  27. knucklebucket says: Aug 8, 2011 7:33 PM

    As a Pats fan i love the fact that he feels disrespected. Only serves as motivation. Take it out on everyone that passed on you Shaun…..everyone. Especially Mark Sanchez. i heard he called you a washed up bum……just sayin.

  28. flagstaffphotos says: Aug 8, 2011 8:06 PM

    6-8 seconds, you can have old people in wheel chairs to throw to with that much time in the pocket behind that great o-line.
    Meanwhile, JayCutler/Romo are getting killed 2 seconds after they snap the ball….
    Peyton/Rodgers basically have 4 seconds…. just sayin ( points @ jamie dukes)

  32. bcgreg says: Aug 8, 2011 8:36 PM

    @ jetsfan80

    Seriously?

    Jets offer Ellis 1 year at $912K (veteran MINIMUM)
    Pats offer Ellis 1 year at $4+ million
    What would you do? Better yet. What would you do as a 34 year old pro football player?

    Astros offered Pettitte 3 yrs $31.5 million
    Yankees offered 3 years $39 million
    Red Sox supposedly offered 4 years $52 million
    He signed with the Astros (really, to play at ‘home’)

    Looks like he didn’t want to pitch for the Yankees either! Too bad. Pettitte would have had 2 more rings if he went to Boston.

    The difference is that the baseball players get multi year GUARANTEED contracts. The Pats offered QUADRUPLE what the Jets did. If the Sox offered Pettitte quadruple what the Yankees did (that would be $144M over 3 years), do you think Pettitte would have signed with the Sox? Somehow, I think he would have found it in his heart to play for the dreaded Red Sox.

  33. mojosmagic says: Aug 8, 2011 8:40 PM

    For a coach that hasn’t won anything Ryan has a lot to say. All the Ryan’s are cut from same classless cloth. What can you say about a guy who likes to smell dirty feet?

  34. bozzy19 says: Aug 8, 2011 8:49 PM

    Did anyone see/hear the full interview? Rex was completely kidding around when he said he didn’t wish him well, he was smiling the whole time.

    On a side note, there is no doubt who “America’s Team” is now. Any Jet article gets triple the amount of responses as any other team on this site.

    What the “Frack” are you talking about! Can we please just keep loathesome political opinion out of the discussion. Every sicko politician in Washington does nothing but point fingers and blame others for their Bullshyt! Including the ones you voted for. Talk Football. Not BS politics.

    We’ll all see which team is best when the Patriots play the Jets 2 or 3 times this year. My bet is Sanchez won’t like the heat that Haynesworth and Wilfork will bring up the middle. That will force him outside to those young assasin Linebackers. The Patriots have put together a shutdown defense again that could be better than any of their super bowl winners. Their secondary could be unbelievable behind a line and linebackers like they have now. If Ellis can chip in 1 or 2 sacks per game off the Haynesworth/Wilfork, pocket collapsing pressure. He’ll be worth every dime the Pats paid him. And Ryan still won’t respect him. That’s just Buddy! Oops, I ,meant Rex.

    ______________________________________

    See, this is a stupid comparison, and if you had taken a second to think about it, you’d understand why.

    Martin was a third-round pick who signed that restricted-FA deal in 1998 at age 24 and after three years in the league. Obviously, he hadn’t made any serious money as a third-round pick who was still on his rookie contract, so he understandably wanted his first big pay day. By contrast, Ellis had already made 60 million dollars with the Jets; wasn’t hurting for money; had been treated well here for 11 years; and had maybe 1-2 years left in his career.

    Sorry. 4×39 is 156 not 144. I must’ve hit the wrong button.

    So, if the Sox offered Pettitte 156 mil over 3 years, I think he might’ve taken it.

  40. frankiefiveangels says: Aug 9, 2011 4:57 AM

    OK baboushka I’ll keep the discussion to football. If you think the Patriots linebacker are “assasins” and Ellis could be getting 1 or 2 sacks each game then you are the one with “loathesome” opinions. Get a clue moonbat.

  41. semperfi24 says: Aug 9, 2011 8:42 AM

    Green41563,

    The Curtis Martin comparison was simply a comparison of former Pats, playing for the Jets. But since you know it all, I will follow up with this. Did you boycott the Jets when they hired that traitor Bill Parcells (illegally I might add, you know, cheating). Since you couldnt root for a team with a traitor as head coach. And then, when they hired Mangini, I am sure that you once again couldnt root for the Jets, since you couldnt follow a team with a traitor head coach…

    But really, who knew that a rivalry only counted for Vets, who have made tons of money in their career? It doesnt count for anyone else. I always figured, that any member of one side, that jumped ship to the other side, was a “traitor”. Had no idea there were qualifiers…

    And yes August 1969, I do realize I typed the wrong “dawn”, but there isnt an “un-submit” button, it happens…

  42. bozosforall says: Aug 9, 2011 10:18 AM

    Just wait and see how little the Pats and their fans respect you in a year or so, if not sooner. They show zero loyalty to any former players that leave for another team once they chew you up and spit you out. Enjoy the ride. LMAO

    Clemens went to the Blue Jays from the Red Sox (which gave him time to wash the stink of Boston off of himself) and Martin got kicked to the curb by the Pats, so the situations aren’t even remotely the same. But continue to implement the patented New England revisionist history machine, just like all of you NE morons do. Problem is, you aren’t fooling anyone but yourselves. LMAO

  44. bcgreg says: Aug 9, 2011 10:48 AM

    @ bozosforall

    Martin did NOT get kicked to the curb by the Pats. He was a restricted free agent. The Jets offered him 6 years $36 million. The Pats had the right to match. The only problem was that if the Pats matched it, a poison pill clause would have kicked in. That clause was a provision in which Martin could become an unrestricted free agent the following season if the Patriots matched the offer, allowing him to leave New England without the Patriots receiving a dime or compensation. Also, the deal included a $3.3 million roster bonus that would’ve wrecked the Patriots’ salary cap. As a result, the Pats had to let him go and got a 1st and a 3rd round pick for doing so.

    It was a brilliant move by the Jets, but I hope the leaugue cleaned this up because the whole idea of matching a contract offer is that it’s the SAME offer from both teams. The Jets offer did NOT include the roster bonus OR making Martin unrestricted after the 1st year. So how was NE matching an offer? No one in NE blamed the Pats for letting him go once the details of the contract came to light. Again, I hope the league cleaned up this “poison pill” thing because in this case, NE was NOT matching an offer. If they signed Martin, it would have been to a different contract than what the Jets offered.

    A situation that would have never happened if the Pats hadn’t “kicked him to the curb” (by not offering him a fair contract to begin with). The tightwad Pats only fooled themselves by not valuing Curtis Martin at what he was worth by offering him enough money to keep him from shopping himself elsewhere. Same thing happened when Clemens left the Red Sox for the Blue Jays. Pats missed out on over 10,000 yards of rushing production over the course of Curtis’s career. Their BIG loss.

  48. bcgreg says: Aug 9, 2011 9:18 PM

    @ bozosforall

    He was a RESTRICTED FREE AGENT. They couldn’t offer him money because they were up against the cap! How don’t you get that? They had no room to sign him with the poison pill included. Plus, restricted FAs don’t change teams hardly. They gambled on that point and lost in terms of not renegotiating earlier, but how many SBs did the Jets win with Martin? How many did the Pats win after he left? He had a great career and should be in the HOF, but the Pats didn’t miss him that bad. For the record, the Pats would have matched the offer if the poison pill wasn’t in the deal. The extra 3.3 million and the opt out after one year clause killed the deal.

    The Clemens analogy is apples and oranges. No cap in baseball. Clemens was unrestricted. Clemens hated the GM at the time. He wasn’t signing in Boston unless it was an astronomical offer and even then it would be doubtful he’d sign. There wasn’t EVEN an offer to begin with. There was no offer to “match”.

  49. bcgreg says: Aug 10, 2011 7:51 AM

    As for renegotiating before this all came down with Martin, who renegotiates a rookie contract for a 3rd round pick after year 2? No one does no matter what that rookie has done.

    ___

    Here’s one:

    La’Roi Glover, DT, San Diego State, 5th round pick

    The contract James Sims negotiated for La’Roi was impressive for several reasons: first, La’Roi was virtually an unknown draft prospect as a 5th round pick; second, La’Roi was cut in his second year with Raiders; third, upon signing with his new club, the New Orleans Saints, Sims was able to negotiate a $21,000,000 contract for La’Roi midway through the season in only La’Roi’s third year of the NFL.

    Clemens? ONce he left the Sox, he started sticking needles in his arm, and thats why he won after Boston. He quit on Boston, as his record/stats and performance in the last 3 years of his career in Boston declined precipitously – the norm for most MLB pitchers that don’t CHEAT because He is the Most narcissistic, arrogant piece of garbage who threw his own wife under the bus rather than Man-up and admit he cheated consistently, post Boston.

Same thing happened when Clemens left the Red Sox for the Blue Jays. Pats missed out on over 10,000 yards of rushing production over the course of Curtis’s career. Their BIG loss.

    ******************************************

    Big loss alright: since CMart left NE, the Pats went on to win 3 Superbowls, many Division Titles (with Martin in the AFC East), became a Dynasty/TEAM of the decade.
    Damn, where would be without Cmarts 10k in rushing yards??

    Who comments are foolish?

    Your comments look foolish. Particularly since you have no sense of spelling or grammar, fool.

    And you can put an asterisk besides any of the Pats accomplishments that you listed, courtesy of them being exposed in Spygate as cheaters.

    A better question is “Where would the Pats be without their trusty Sonycam?”

    Clemens? ONce he left the Sox, he started sticking needles in his arm, and thats why he won after Boston. He quit on Boston, as his record/stats and performance in the last 3 years of his career in Boston declined precipitously – the norm for most MLB pitchers that don’t CHEAT because He is the Most narcissistic, arrogant piece of garbage who threw his own wife under the bus rather than Man-up and admit he cheated consistently, post Boston.

    ___
    You criticize Clemens for ALLEGEDLY using steroids (he has never been shown to have failed a steroids test), while you seem to have absolutely no contempt for either Manny or Ortiz (both of whom were revealed to have failed their PED tests in 2003)? Why should Clemens “admit to cheating” when he never failed a test, when Ortiz is proven to have failed a test, yet still denies that he ever cheated? The hypocrisy of you NE losers is so palpable that the rest of us can’t breathe — mostly from not being able to stop laughing at you fools.

    How do you know I have no contempt for Manny or Ortiz?
    Your entire reply is based on an assumption!
    That is a brilliant post there bud…

    Also, grammar and spelling? Are you for real? who the F%*& cares about that on a goofy sports website. 90% of the posters on here pay no attention to it and neither should you.

    Just can’t get over the fact that the NE PATS were better than everyone else for a 5 year period and didn’t need Curtis Martin to show it.
    So you continue to hate and lean on the old spygate BS.

    What proof do you have that everyone else wasn’t doing the exact same thing?
    Put the asterisk next to everyone because they all did it!
    Hypocrite my ass, you are a naive imbecile!
