Rex Ryan picks Rob Ryan’s brain about the Falcons

Rex Ryan, Rob Ryan AP

In Week One, the Saints’ defense did a great job of shutting down the Falcons’ offense. On Monday night, the Jets’ defense will take on the Falcons’ offense. And so it’s good for the Jets that their head coach can get some insight from the Saints’ defensive coordinator.

Jets coach Rex Ryan said today that he sought information from his brother, Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, in preparing for the Falcons.

“Of course, you talk to him,” Rex said about calling his brother. “There’s no doubt about that. I don’t want to get in trouble for insider trading, but absolutely you’ll talk to him.”

It’s not like Rob Ryan has a magic formula for beating the Falcons, but the Saints would be glad to see an AFC team beat one of their NFC South rivals, so it’s easy to see why Rob Ryan would pass along any information he can. And if Rex Ryan thinks his brother can help his team win, then that’s a call he should make.

    Dick Lebeau doesn’t rely on inside information to form a gameplan. The Steelers defense truly won’t be the same when he chooses to retire.

    buffaLOL sucks, with their gimpy QB and Doug MORON.

    ===============

    Judging from the first four weeks of the season, perhaps that’s not the worst thing in the world for them then.

    The steelers relied on hgh/steroids.

    The steelers haven’t been the same since the federal authorities began investigating dr. rydze.

    How can one pick the brain of the other when there isn’t a brain to be had between them?

  13. kaeptaincrunch says: Oct 4, 2013 6:37 PM

    Does Rex also pick Rob’s brain when it comes to the buffet line?

  14. easywolf says: Oct 4, 2013 6:44 PM

    Finally Rex isn’t wearing that stupid golfball shirt he wears on gameday

  15. oldguardof60s says: Oct 4, 2013 6:54 PM

  18. alskdh says: Oct 4, 2013 8:10 PM

    He should have reached out to belichick!!

    Hey Bill,
    It’s Rex. Wondering if you can do me a solid. I can make time to come by and kiss those rings as well if we can work something out.

    Rex Ryan picked Rob Ryan’s brain… Bet that didn’t take long…

  20. thegonz13 says: Oct 4, 2013 8:17 PM

    The Ryan brothers have brains?

    Who knew…

    Saints fan here, that was really funny

  22. jiveturkeygobbler says: Oct 4, 2013 9:43 PM

    Falcons, don’t do what you did against the Saints, the Jets are ready for it

    —————————————————-

    Great argument if you Ignore the fact that Brees played last season when the saints got their teeth kicked in all around the league and oh yea threw a career high 5 picks and ended his consecutive game T/D streak with zero TD passes against…….. Atlanta.

    Give the girthier Ryan some credit, he has turned that defense around

  25. thetooloftools says: Oct 4, 2013 10:52 PM

    You mean “can’t keep a job Rob” is helping by giving tips to his brother. You put those two together and you still wouldn’t have one good coach.

  26. wolfmanpatriot says: Oct 4, 2013 11:35 PM

    They pick each other’s brains.

    Via their noses.

  27. oilman989 says: Oct 5, 2013 12:09 AM

    Shouldn’t Rob be picking Rex’s brain about lap-band surgery??

    Neither has any business being employed in the NFL. Nepotism at it’s finest, fellas.

  28. bunglesandbears says: Oct 5, 2013 12:39 AM

    Who knew Rob’s belly was wider than Rex’s shoulders?

    “Dick Lebeau doesn’t rely on inside information to form a gameplan. The Steelers defense truly won’t be the same when he chooses to retire.”

    I am currently laughing at you.

  30. harrisonhits2 says: Oct 5, 2013 1:56 AM

    Seems like a conflict of interest when these guys and the Harbaugh brothers help each other out.

    Helping any other NFL team should not be acceptable.

  31. RexCanCoach says: Oct 5, 2013 7:02 AM

    Rex needs to find advice on how he can get his offense to score points. Defense is sound this year.

  32. murlikoushik says: Oct 5, 2013 7:19 AM

    How did these guys get this way? Not that there is anything wrong with being so fat . . .

  33. vegaskid21 says: Oct 5, 2013 7:45 AM

    That’s a whole lot of ugly right there.

  34. goawayeverybody says: Oct 5, 2013 10:05 AM

    This is nice, but unfortunately even if the Jets knew every single play the Falcons were going to do, they would still lose because Geno Smith is totally clueless as a football player.

    Just. Totally. Clueless.

  35. cajuntigerman01 says: Oct 5, 2013 10:12 AM

    All you Failcon fans that are posting on here….how does 4-0 going to 5-0 sound to you. Better yet , how does 4 1/2 games up on you sound after the J-E-T-S beat you. So don’t criticise Rob Ryan’s brain–it’s what help beat you!!

  36. surfinbird1 says: Oct 5, 2013 1:38 PM

    Rob: That’s easy Rex. Lock Geno up and hide the key.
