It's about Rex's defensive legacy, not your stupid team
Rex does nothing but pad his defensive resume' with all these defensive picks. Every pick he wants is a pick designed to further the mythology of his own "defensive mastermind" status. The man don't care about your stupid team, all he cares about is being regarded as a defensive genius.
The Jets will tank this year, but they'll all say "Yeah but Rex Ryan's defense was still good!". We'll go 4-11, but Rex Ryan's defense will still be Top 10. Thats what it's all about... REX RYAN, not your stupid team!
It seems to be more about you, not Rex.
