Jets coach Rex Ryan took a shot at the Baltimore Orioles for refusing to move their previously scheduled game on Thursday, September 5, which required the Ravens to play their opener on the road. The manager of the Orioles thinks Ryan should mind his own business.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter says if Ryan is concerned with anything about Baltimore, he ought to be concerned about the Jets’ meeting with Baltimore this season.
“I think I’d be a little more concerned about November 24 when the Jets come here and try to figure out a way to beat the Ravens, wouldn’t you?,” Showalter said, via CSNBaltimore.com. “I’d think that would be a little bit more of a challenge. I try to stay out of things I don’t know about. Like I don’t know about the NFL schedule and the NFL challenges. So that would be my advice. I would stay in what is my area of supposed expertise.”
Showalter’s use of the word “supposed” there is a nice touch. And it’s a fair point: Ryan has enough to worry about with the Jets, that he’d probably be wise not to get involved with issues that don’t affect his team.
