Rex Ryan ‘a little angry’ at Robert Saleh’s barrage


Much like Michael Jordan, Rex Ryan took it personally. Very, very personal.

Former Jets coach current bartender Robert Saleh clashed after the Bills rolled to a 45-17 victory at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

“This guy is supposed to be a defensive guru. I take it personally. Everything I’ve heard is that this guy is like me, but without the bard, ” Ryan said in an interview with ESPN Radio. “Some bad parts you need, because this team doesn’t want to play with any heart. That’s the thing that let me down.

“Never compare me to Robert Saleh. According to statistics, one time he was a top defense. Four times out of five, he was dead last in his division. He dies last, so he uses it. For me, I was a little angry about it when I heard that his background is the same as yours. No it’s not. No it’s not. “

After spending four years as the 49ers defensive coordinator, the Jets were last in the NFL in Saleh’s first season in points allowed (32.9) and allowed (417.1) per game. In those four seasons, the 49ers finished 25th, 28th, 8th and 17th in each game.

Ryan, now an analyst for ESPN, was the Jets’ coach from 2009-2014. He thanked New York for his stubborn personality (the “bad side”) and led the team to its first two seasons of back-to-back AFC Championship games. His tenure declined when he went 26-38 in his last four seasons.

The Jets are now 2-7 after giving up 175 points in their last four games. It was the Jets’ first game of star defense, with Marcus Maye tearing his Achilles tendon when losing to the Colts.

“It’s a terrible defense,” Ryan said. Now they are going to say, we have never had our own safety. What now Everyone has a million injuries, leaving the safety above you are missing. I remember playing without five corners (in one season), it never looked like this. I think we were fifth in the league in defense that year.

This is not the first time Ryan Saleh is going. After a 54-13 loss to the Patriots last month, Ryan called the team “utterly embarrassing.”
