Rex Ryan says Patriots are a ‘JV team’ and Jets will trample them


The Patriots are in danger of “falling off the mountain,” the former Jets coach said.

As if one “Har-Bowl” wasn’t enough for the NFL, let’s take a moment to look at Rex and Rob Ryan. Rob Ryan served as the defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys throughout the 2012 season, but was fired after the Cowboys failed to qualify for the playoffs. Most famous or infamous in New England, Rex Ryan is the head coach of the New York Jets, a rival the Patriots have faced many times. The last time the twins’ teams met, in 2011, the Cowboys lost a close game 27-24. FR170745AP

The Patriots are struggling as the Jets surge, and former Jets coach Rex Ryan was eager to get on Bill Belichick’s team when the NFL countdown came on Sunday.

“Let’s not twist it, they still have the coach there, Bill Belichick,” Ryan said. “And they have a player that wouldn’t have started on those old Patriot teams, Matt Judon, nobody else. It’s the New England Patriots JV team. So to me, I’m like the Jets trampled them.

With four straight wins, the Jets are on a good streak while the Patriots just suffered an embarrassing loss Monday night against the Bears. Chicago scored 33 over the Patriots. How much could Ryan see New York score?

“You hang 50 on this team today,” Ryan said. “Forget it, man. Change the thing. Because I watch this. I see a team climbing that mountain where the Patriots were. And it takes time, no doubt, but they go a little faster. Let me end with this: there’s a team coming out of this mountain and if they lose this one today, they’re going out of this mountain at breakneck speed. »

Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi was on the panel with Ryan. Bruschi said he thinks the Patriots come in thinking the Jets will buckle under pressure like they normally do.

“Until they prove it, the Patriots will always go to this stadium and play the Jets and it’s like they’re a little brother,” Bruschi said. “Until they prove it, and they haven’t. And you got it all today, okay NY Jets? But now you gotta do it. Because when the score is tight and the game is close in the fourth quarter, the Jets still fold.

Ryan, however, says the past is over. The Jets have a chance to prove this is a new era in this rivalry.

“The Patriots still think they’re better than the Jets,” Ryan said. “Man, they’re no better. You were better when you had Tom Brady at quarterback and Randy Moss at receiver.
