Rex Ryan disputes Belichick’s claim of pushing by Jets

dawkins-great-discovery

It continues.  And we like it.

A day after Patriots coach Bill Belichick accused the Jets of doing the same thing the Patriots were caught doing in overtime on Sunday, Jets coach Rex Ryan responded.

“That’s not true,” Ryan told reporters regarding Belichick’s claim that the Jets had been illegally pushing players on the line of scrimmage while defending against field-goal attempts.  “He’s got to make up his mind.  Was he aware of this thing?  Was it second level, all this kind of jazz, or now the story is we did it? . . . .  The fact is we’re moving on. We earned that victory plain and simple, and we’re focused on Cincinnati now.”

In fairness to Belichick, he wasn’t offering an alternative explanation for the violation that gave the Jets a field-goal Mulligan in overtime.  Instead, he was responding to a question regarding reports that the Jets alerted the officials to the Patriots breaking the rule.

Really, it wouldn’t make sense for the Jets to alert the officials to a rule that the Jets planned to break.

As explained earlier in the day, however, the Jets’ violation was trivial in comparison to the two-man horse costume routine the Patriots attempted directly in front of the official who threw the flag.

And the only thing we know with certainty going forward is that Belichick and Ryan will never be attending a Halloween party together in a two-man horse costume, because they’ll never be able to agree on which one should be the ass.

    Ok, that last part was funny I don’t care who you are……

    The picture says it all.

    The horse costume depiction and now the picture is just priceless. I can’t think of a better way to make Belichick look silly for this whole topic that has befuddled him from every angle and before during and after it was all going on.

    All Bill has to do is to tell us which FG attempt to look for and which number was on the jersey of the guy that was playing “back-half” horse for that play.

    Oh yea, good point. Belichick was asked a question and we all know that once he’s asked a question, he ALWAYS answers and he didn’t really have a choice.

    Yea right- Belicheck never answers a question he doesn’t want to. If he responded to the question it’s because he wanted to and he had something to say. You can’t use the “just answering a question” excuse for Bill, it just doesn’t work.

    Belichick really hasn’t moved on and that is unusual for him, at least publicly. Better get over it soon…….It was illegal and cost them the game.

  8. Foghorn The IKonoclast says: Oct 23, 2013 10:37 PM

    Belichek is as honest as the day is long.. amen!

  9. pastabelly101 says: Oct 23, 2013 10:37 PM

    Florio your anti Patriots bias is shining through, not only is the Jet violation clear it is far more egregious than what Jones did.

  10. jetsclaps says: Oct 23, 2013 10:37 PM

    The brashness is back in full swing, and this Jets fan loves it!

  11. cursedvikings1998 says: Oct 23, 2013 10:39 PM

    Anyone see the irony in Belichick accusing another team of cheating? Anyone? Bueller?

    LOL I hate the NY Jets and Rex Ryan, but that was hilarious!

    That right there would be an appearance of the rare two assed horse…. One a bit bigger than the other but hey, with two asses who’s paying much attention.

  14. doublezero74 says: Oct 23, 2013 10:44 PM

    Whatever, let’s move on. The jets will finish another year in the quagmire of mediocrity and the the pats will contend for hardware like always.

  15. jonbeck316 says: Oct 23, 2013 10:44 PM

    Rex Ryan is a foot fetishist – icky!

  16. nomoreseasontix says: Oct 23, 2013 10:44 PM

    Really? Who really cares what the future ex Jets head coach says.
    Maybe he’ll be relevant again as a coordinator.

  17. tincansailor981 says: Oct 23, 2013 10:44 PM

    Good one.

  18. Patskrieg dot com says: Oct 23, 2013 10:45 PM

    They did it. IT’S ON VIDEO. Why is there still a debate?!

  19. jonbeck316 says: Oct 23, 2013 10:47 PM

    I wish they’d tied that lap band around Rex’s mouth instead.

    Hiyoooo!

    “Really, it wouldn’t make sense for the Jets to alert the officials to a rule that the Jets planned to break.

    Unless the Jets warned the refs after they had already done it and just before the final attempt, knowing the Pats had done it earlier. It’s not just about informing the refs, but the strategic timing that gets the most bang for the buck.

    There just not going to let this go jeeezzzz!!

  23. deejayehn says: Oct 23, 2013 11:05 PM

    The Pats should have never lost this game by a s hit ty call like this.

    Something isn’t right with Brady though…

  24. coltzfan166 says: Oct 23, 2013 11:10 PM

    The picture says it all.

  25. deadlevelbest says: Oct 23, 2013 11:13 PM

    The Pats organization might be collapsing right before our eyes.

  26. j0esixpack says: Oct 23, 2013 11:41 PM

    The best part about this week is that the win may have saved Wrecks his job

    And that’s GREAT news for every fan of comedy and football (in that order)

  27. alskdh says: Oct 24, 2013 12:07 AM

    Let them eat it up. It’s the highlight of their season, and with all hope will keep the staff in place and the circus going through the rest of toms career.

  28. truths4all says: Oct 24, 2013 12:16 AM

    Does anyone dispute the fact the Jesters needed the officials to help them steal a win?

  29. ryann252013 says: Oct 24, 2013 8:14 AM

    Yes! Rex is back!!

  30. whatjusthapped says: Oct 24, 2013 8:42 AM

    If Belichick made the accusation, I will assume he has it on videotape to back it up. I can’t believe the Patriots out of all the teams, wouldn’t have extensive video tape to prove the point.

    Can someone remind me again on how many Lombardi’s Belichick has won since he got caught illegally videotaping?

  31. 315judman says: Oct 24, 2013 9:02 AM

    Billy either got out coached or out foxed. It’s Thursday, keep talkin’ boys!

    Go Bills.

  32. pj608 says: Oct 24, 2013 9:38 AM

    Belichick is going to be watching that tape until next Christmas

  33. backdapack4evr says: Oct 24, 2013 10:05 AM

    Rex and Bill would make a good 2 headed clown!
    It would be an easy transition when they get fired to become part of the circus!!

  34. kev86 says: Oct 24, 2013 1:34 PM

    Rex put Folk in for 56 yarder? What a genius.

  35. patriotenvy says: Oct 24, 2013 3:36 PM

    Rex says they earned that win plain and simple. Now he know a little of what it’s like to be a Patriots fan. Tuck rule anyone??
