    Coples responds to Rex calling him out

    http://www.metro.us/newyork/sports/2...t-by-rex-ryan/

    Last week, head coach Rex Ryan sent a message to linebacker Quinton Coples, calling out the second-year player for what he saw was a lack of effort in the weight room. The former first-round pick says that the message was received.

    Neither player nor coach have talked about the perceived lack of effort with Coples saying it was a “first-time experience for me” and that he has never been called out before. He called it a “wake-up” call.

    “I wouldn’t say I got comfortable, it was during a drill, it was videotaped and I could have given better effort,” Coples said. “The next day when we came back here, I gave a better effort to make sure it wouldn’t happen again.”

    So Ryan haters: He does some things right. Classy response by Mr. C

    "Last week, head coach Rex Ryan sent a message to linebacker Quinton Coples, calling out the second-year player for what he saw was a lack of effort in the weight room. The former first-round pick says that the message was received.

    Neither player nor coach have talked about the perceived lack of effort with Coples saying it was a “first-time experience for me” and that he has never been called out before. He called it a “wake-up” call.

    “I wouldn’t say I got comfortable, it was during a drill, it was videotaped and I could have given better effort,” Coples said. “The next day when we came back here, I gave a better effort to make sure it wouldn’t happen again.”

    In 2011 during his final year as a Tar Heel, Coples was dogged by criticism he would take plays off and lacked overall effort. It was a talking point that stuck with him throughout last spring’s NFL Draft process, despite his strong metrics.

    Coples said he heard about his head coach’s disapproval when his business manager called him about Ryan’s quotes from rookie minicamp. A Google Alert went off in his business manager’s inbox, notifying him of the situation.

    “I wasn’t shocked by it; it was just something he did,” Coples sad. “I responded well. I responded in the weight room and got better.”

    Last week, Ryan said he holds Coples to a very high standard since he “has all the physical tools to be the best player out on the field and that’s what we need him to be.”

    In 2012, Coples played in all 16 games and had 30 tackles. He led the Jets with 5.5 sacks."

    He is down to 285-280.. That shows dedication to me.. Not saying issue Rex scolding was wrong. As far I'm concerned Rex is just making sure he stays focused..I'm excited to see how Coples develops .. His physical presence alone stands out on the field..

    If Coples comes out and plays as well at OLB as we all think he is capable of?

    Rex will be called a genius for getting in his sh*t.

    The only thing is that I'm not sure about the switch to OLB. Is he just gonna stand up and pin his ears back when he's in at the position? I can't imagine actually having him drop back in coverage.

    How do you teach a guy that has never covered to cover ? It feels almost like a desperation move due to Idzik trimming the slow,dead weight from the roster.It seems like a long shot ... But I am hoping he does well.

    You don't because he won't. You guys are really over thinking this.

    Hasn't this been beaten to death? He's playing rush LB. Pace's spot. Have you seen Pace in coverage? Have you seen PAce rush the passer the last two years? Didn't think so. He could set the edge. That's the only thing I'm worried about Coples doing. That, and tackling in space. I think he'll be fine.

    And maybe the Jets are too.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I wouldn't be surprised if he has a rough transition and the Jets decide to put him back to his original position.

    We shall see.

    This was the main thing that Coples said he felt was different for him / something he needed to work on.

    i think he is going to kill it on the edge he sheds blockers at will so when the play gets there he will be free to make the tackle. now in space it not as easy but with his skill set he should do fine out there. i think you will see him drop in coverage 4 times a game max and he runs really so he should be fine in limited reps

    thats not happening they moved him there at the end of last season. you just wont notice if your not looking he jumps back and forth depending on the allignment of the D. we change so much that its hard to know on each play what he is and thats thewhy the D works so well

    I remember thinking Big Kat Ellis was going to going to be a monster in the Warren Sapp role in Herm's defense. He had the size and ability - it looked like a perfect fit.

    Ellis dropped off the face of the earth and literally took two years to recover and start playing well again. I'm on the fence with this move until the action starts.

    It's good that he took responsibility. It's a red flag to watch in the fact that he wasn't a full time starter last year, is in his second year, and needed to be motivated. Sometimes guys take a wake up call and run with it and sometimes guys fall back into old habits.
