    The concerning part isn't the part where Rex said he wasn't on board with the pick. The concerning part is that Rex actually watched Hill's tape and didn't like what he saw. Turns out he was right.

    EDIT: This also shows that Rex didn't have as much influence over the roster as people here claim.

    He definitely wasn't joking. Look at how specific he was. He said he watched Hill's tape and saw nothing. Well, he was right -- he's been getting nothing from Hill.

    This is it for Hill. One more shot, if he can't step up then he's done.

    He said that right after Hill was drafted.

    There's no question Rex didn't want Hill. He was surprisingly vocal about it right after the pick was made.

    I'm sure he wanted a defensive player. It's Rex. He was d-lineman and corners with just about every pick.

    Except in 09 they didn't draft 1 D player and in Rex's time more O players were drafted then D players.. I agree most top picks were D but that was the case before Rex as well when Tanny and Bradway were the GM's..

    Dude he was praising Tanny and the FO for the pick, it was meant to be positive what he said. Holy **** way to take things out of context

    Human nature, what you say to promote your team and players to your fanbase after a draft etc go over your head.

    You hate Rex, whine about everything he does, we get it. You're so tainted you can't even give him credit when its documented and apparent to anyone

    If you're that stupid that you believe he'd trash one of our picks right after the draft then you should punch yourself in the head maybe you'll straighten up. But considering you have one of Rex's balls and one of Geno's balls in your mouth I doubt you'd deal with reality at any point in your life.

    Actually I was going to try and be nice but you're the one who is so retarded that you don't get that even if Rex hated a pick he wouldn't trash him immediately after the draft. You know, what I said above.
    That you rewrote.

    You know, the reasoning you used to think that Rex loved the Hill pick.

    That would make you the retard.

    Only a moron with out an ounce of sense would reach for that idiotic balls in the mouth line. Thats about as stupid and childish as it gets, thats all you have?

    He said he saw nothing on the tape. That's positive?

    He doesn't really value offense so it's not surprising that he'd knock the pick. He probably wanted another corner.

    I have seen Rex make those comments in a news conference and he WAS NOT joking. Rex does joke like that all the time but not in this case.

    He said he saw nothing on tape THAT TOLD HIM HILL WAS READY TO CONTRIBUTE EARLY. That's what the SI guy asked him. Are all Ryan nuthuggers that stupid? Most of them it seems.

    ŽI love the Jets defense and it should keep them in most games. But New York seems to think it has enough playmakers on offense and I just don't see it. In training camp, when I asked him how he knew rookie second-round receiver Stephen Hill was ready to contribute early, Ryan gave me a very honest, but curious answer.

    "Well, nothing told me he would (contribute),'' Ryan said. "Nothing. When I saw the tape (of his collegiate play) I was concerned. But (Jets general manager) Mike Tannenbaum and (senior personnel executive) Terry Bradway and all our scouts were adamant about this guy. They were adamant that this guy can do it. He can run all these routes, he had good hands and he's got 4.2 speed at 6-foot-5. He was the guy they all wanted, but honestly, when it came down to it, a wideout? Not my dream pick. But now that we have him, of course, I want to claim him: 'Oh, that was my pick.' But it really wasn't.''
    Who would be dumb enough to even think a headcoach would bash a 2nd round pick that hasn't even appeared in a game? Do you have any common sense whatsoever? Who'd be dumb enough to think he was trashing the Hill pick and trash his own boss (Tanny), the front office and the entire scouting staff when the kid hasn't even appeared in a game?

    1) Rex didn't say one negative thing about Hill. He was even trying to take credit for the pick if you read his comment.
    2) He gets asked whether he thought Hill would be able to contribute early. Anybody with half a brain would have said no. That's what Ryan said. Everyone knew that.
    3) He was referring to picking a wideout, period. Not Hill. A wideout. He obviously wanted another defender like he usually does. Had nothing to do with Hill.
    4) Ryan handed Tanny the game ball after our W1 win against the Bills a couple days later when Hill scored 2 TD's. Bet you didn't know that either.

    Why don't you come up with the comments he made on Gholston and how he'd basically turn Gholston into Suggs? Because it doesn't make your hero look all that good does it now that Gholston is pumping gas somewhere in Arizona.
