    I'm only 5 pages in, and if it were possible, I do believe I am more enamored of Rex Ryan than I was before. Smack me upside the head if I ever lose faith and speak ill of him.

    EDIT- my favorite quote (of many):

    [quote]Being upbraided for swearing around football players strikes Ryan as a little prim. “I’m not a perfect person, never claimed to be,” he says. “Tony Dungy loves Michael Vick. I never tortured or killed animals. I’m an animal lover! I used a few cuss words! At the end of the day, no matter what, I’ll walk out the door and say I always was who I am.”[/quote]

    [QUOTE]Another player, extravagantly well muscled, comes into view, a cloud passing before the sun. “I’d just as soon move on without him,” Ryan mutters. “He’s into something. Roid monster. He shouldn’t look like that.”

    [/QUOTE]

    Now is this a shot at Gholston?????

    If the Jets win a SB, he would be an instant American Legend.

    Great read :yes:

    Seriously, that was probably one of the best Jets articles I've ever read.

    WOW!!

    As if we didn't already love Rex for who he is, awesome.

    My favorite quote:

    [quote]Players also offered Ryan more fundamental gratitude. It has become anathema for athletes to endure serious injuries and play on ó but not for football players. To them, toughness is the essence of the sport and anguish is a form of effort, something you nobly give. As Sutton, the former Army coach, will tell you, like soldiers who fight not for flag or country but for officers and comrades, football players make their sacrifices for their teammates and coaches. In Baltimore, players stayed in games with lacerated kidneys, torn-up knees and shattered hands for Ryan because he was, in turn, all about them.

    iLinebacker Mike Smith incurred a career-ending injury in a game against Tennessee. ďI didnít want to come out of the game,Ē he says. ďIím running around with my arm dislocated, hanging weirdly to my side. I didnít want to let Rex down. Thatís how all the guys felt. Heís like our dad. We donít want to let our dad down. Everybody in Baltimore misses him. Guys in Baltimore who left Rex, they didnít play as well after leaving him. Rex is the guy you drink beer with on Saturday nights, heís the guy you go fishing at the lake with, heís the guy youíve always known, the forever guy. Once you play for him, you donít want to play for anybody else.Ē Now Smith is a Jets defensive assistant, working for Ryan. Scott and Leonhard are Jets players. Sutton calls them ďflag bearers.Ē[/quote]

    When was the last time we had a coach like this?? This just seems like the year where we actually win the super-bowl and with Rex Ryan leading this team I honestly believe we will win it.
