Rex Ryan confident he can take Mark Sanchez

M. Sancheztub

It’s about time Mark Sanchez started taking some grief for his comments in GQ, not to mention the pictures.

Jets coach Rex Ryan surprised Sanchez during a team meeting on Wednesday morning. A few coaches prepared a “Tale of the Tape” comparing Ryan and Sanchez that looked unfavorably at Sanchez’s chances of winning in a fight.

“My keys to victory were ground and pound,” Ryan said.

The Jets head coach, whose fighting record was listed at 1,000-0, said he didn’t expect to ever pull Sanchez from the lineup.

“I don’t anticipate it. With the way Mark has elevated his play, I don’t think I’ll ever have to pull him,” Ryan said.

Oh, and about those pictures: Nick Mangold told reporters he is going to make Sanchez wear his “painted on” white pants for an upcoming road trip.

    This joke has been beaten to death.

    However, the picture is just fantastic.

    i thought Rex would say his keys to victory would be tickling Sanchez’s feet.

    These two need to get a room already. Rex can massage Mark’s feet while Mark pretends that Rex is a 16 year old girl.

    who isn’t confident they could take mark sanchez??

    Anything that takes the pressure off of the
    “same ol’ Jets” dynamic is a positive in Jets-land.

    One of the reasons the Jets have done so well the last couple of years is because they have three reliable sources of changing the conversation.

    Rex Ryan is the master of this. Bart Scott does it a lot also. And you have to give Mark Sanchez props for making “same ol’ Jets” a non-topic whenever he’s around.

    Look at everybody giving him grief right now for prancing around in his underwear again. He doesn’t do these things on purpose to achieve that effect but it sure doesn’t hurt.

    Look at the Jets other recent successes. Bill Parcells was the whole show, you couldn’t get a “same ol’ Jets” in sideways when he was around.

    Herm Edwards, for all of his faults, had a wonderful grasp of how to hypnotize the media and make them look away from whatever was happening on the field. His Jets occasionally looked like “same ol’ Jets” but that never became the dominant thread while he was around.

    It’s good to have ways to change the conversation built in to the team. It’s better to be the Steelers or the Patriots, but I’ll take loud-mouthed whack jobs over “same ol’ Jets” every day and twice on Sunday.

    PFT has more Jets related stories than the blog that I read to get real content concerning my squad. You guys seriously need more material because it has long since gotten pathetic.

    Rex Ryan needs to stop talking, now.

    The Jets head coach, whose fighting record was listed at 1,000-0…

    wow!!! 1,000-0 — sounds like the number of times he’s loudly mouthed off and been proven wrong.

  16. mike83ri says: Aug 17, 2011 1:26 PM

    Rex Ryan is 0-2 in AFC Championship fights.

  17. juliusanonymous says: Aug 17, 2011 1:27 PM

    You know, the cynic in me really wants to hate Rex Ryan. But the dude is just too damn funny…

    Although seriously, can we bring the volume down just a bit until the Jets actually win something?

    Cant wait to see the comments. I love how Rex messes with your heads.

  21. mike83ri says: Aug 17, 2011 1:29 PM

    Rex Ryan is 0-3 in the last three AFC Championships.

  22. Slackmo says: Aug 17, 2011 1:29 PM

    Rex did give Sanchez props for his improved footwork.

  23. dccowboy says: Aug 17, 2011 1:30 PM

    Silly football players. If you know what you’re doing in hand to hand, size doesn’t matter as much as skill. In fact, size can be disadvantage.

  24. coutre says: Aug 17, 2011 1:32 PM

    Ryan is the NFL’s equivalent of Ozzie Guillen. He just loves the camera and would rather make everything about him than he would the team.

  25. jenniferxxx says: Aug 17, 2011 1:32 PM

    I wish Tom Coughlin and Eli had as much chemistry and personality.

  26. blackqbwhiterb says: Aug 17, 2011 1:33 PM

    I think Rex is a little crazy, but a breath of fresh air, really, in a league that has become full of “Don’t say anything controversial” Belichick-type coaches…..Makes it fun, and you can tell the guys that play there like him a lot, from all I’ve seen on TV, read in the press, etc….

  28. dude317 says: Aug 17, 2011 1:36 PM

    @dccowboy that’s what guys of small size say

    Sanchez could take Ryan in a fight (weight does have its disadvantages) if Sanchez fought correctly.

  29. tjacks7 says: Aug 17, 2011 1:36 PM

    Lots of high school girls have said the same thing.

  30. benh999 says: Aug 17, 2011 1:36 PM

    I hope that Rex Ryan being able to “take” Mark Sanchez doesn’t mean what I think it means.

    Actually, Rex… your career record is 20-12, 4-2 in the playoffs.

    That is, 0-2 in the AFC Championship game, might I add.

  33. Slackmo says: Aug 17, 2011 1:39 PM

    Tom and Eli will have to settle for a SB ring and concede the personality business to Rex and Sanchez.

  34. nesuperfan says: Aug 17, 2011 1:40 PM

    Rex Ryan’s 1000-1 record is from fighting over food. He’s never lost a fight for the last crumb.

    From the NFL network: “In related news, today Mark Sanchez had to retire from the NFL. After his fight with Coach Rex Ryan, he unfortunately lost an arm, which was taken off and swallowed whole by the rotund coach. Sanchez is in serious, but stable condition, but the coach has a serious case of heartburn.”

  35. damnyoulinelliot says: Aug 17, 2011 1:41 PM

    Maybe Floyd Mayweather will fight Mark Sanchez instead of manning up and fighting Pacquaio

  36. vickismydogg says: Aug 17, 2011 1:41 PM

    This has become a joke. Seriously, where is the professionalism here? A head coach and his starting quarterback talking about fighting each other. How do you expect to do well this season with this tension going on between two important roles in the franchise?

    Are you gonna take that?

    I’ll have my popcorn ready when Sanchez has his first bad game, and Rex goes after him.

    All you have to do to beat Chubbs Ryan is make him chase you around until Captain Foot Fetish falls over dead of a heart attack.

    Sorry Fatty, but you’re not physically conditioned well enough to beat up a High School Football player. Let alone a professional one …

  42. tarken10 says: Aug 17, 2011 2:08 PM

    So, because Rex Ryan is a classless loudmouth, who feigns anger and intensity in the 2nd quarter of the first preseason game, and because Sanchez thinks he’s oh-so-cute for saying he wanted to “fight” Ryan, this site has to turn into a soap opera report called As the Jets Turn?

    The campaign to paint Sanchez as a leader is already stale and boring. There are many other things to report about right now. No?

  43. tunescribe says: Aug 17, 2011 2:08 PM

    Wrecks’ won-loss record is a lie. He was beaten repeatedly as a child by all comers. That’s why he constantly begins press conferences with, “I don’t care what anybody says … “

    would have loved to see one but i don’t think they belong in the same class – Mark is featherweight compared to Rex’s ” Belly weight”

    coincidentally ground and pound is what i think of when i see that sexy sanchez too.

    ——————————————————Couldn’t agree more. Enjoyed many of the posted comments, but the HS dropouts and other humorless Tea Party fools on this site need to lighten up. Loved Mangold’s quote. Dude has always had a serious sense of humor.

  48. paulsdamnblog says: Aug 17, 2011 2:59 PM

    They should change the name of this site to Jets Pro Football Talk, waaaaaaay to much about Rex, feet, Sanchez, and Rex’s love for Derrick Mason’s size. Maybe “don’t ask don’t tell” was good for certain things, like not having to hear about Rex and his fetishes.

    Put them in an 8′ x 8′ room or ring and I’ll take Rex everyday. put them in a gym or field and wellllll, it wouldn’t be pretty for old “toejam”.

    @hoite

    Nice work. Best part is that Brady has ALREADY begun the slide down on the declining side of the curve now, his window to win another title is 3 years.

    By then we will be celebrating Pats 10 year anniversary!

    And counting…

  56. upperdecker19 says: Aug 17, 2011 4:44 PM

    “The Jets head coach, whose fighting record was listed at 1,000-0″

    Must be including pie eating contests at the local county fair in that record…..

  57. davikes says: Aug 17, 2011 4:51 PM

    I think we’ll find out the winner on 11/17 when the Jet’s are trailing the donkeys 14-3 in the 4th, exactly when Plax starts icing his ankle.

  58. ampats says: Aug 17, 2011 4:57 PM

    Yes Hoite Nice Work.

    Jets Record in same span

    2005 4-12 Last Place
    2006 12-4 Lost in Divisional Playoffs to NEW ENGLAND
    2007 4-12 Last Place
    2008 9-7 By the Brett Favre led team that finished begind the Bradyless Pats
    2009 9-7 Gifted in to lose AFCC
    2010 11-5 Greatest Victory in Jets History Loss AFCC

    Once again, Happy 43rd and counting (GreenAsGrass) haha

  59. drunkendegenerate says: Aug 17, 2011 4:58 PM

    So let me get this straight. The Patriots haven’t won squat since their cheating ways were exposed?

  60. arealfan says: Aug 17, 2011 6:56 PM

    Anyone else tired of hearing about the Jets?

  61. j0esixpack says: Aug 17, 2011 7:56 PM

    When exactly did all the members of the Jets turn gay?

    Note: I’m not sure why dunkendegenerate is talking about the Patriots, but I think he’s about to propose that the Patriots post-Spygate 18-0 run is proof that they can’t win without cheating.

    Let’s sit back and watch – this should be fun!
