Seriously, why does his viewpoint mean anything in regards to something he could never properly evaluate. Hold on. From a certain perspective it could be argued that Rex Ryan knows QBs better than just about anybody. I can't ever recall a two week stretch in the postseason where a guy limited both Peyton Manning and Tom Brady on their home fields. I vividly remember the announcer during that playoff game in Indy saying something like, "And here's Peyton Manning, hasn't been sacked in 3 weeks...." the next play Rex schemes an easy sack against him. Tom Brady hadn't thrown an INT in something like 200 pass attempts heading into that game. 1st Quarter, David Harris picks him off. Every body said to pressure Brady, Rex wrote a totally different 2nd Half game plan for that day and at one point was dropping like 9 guys into coverage and suffocated any places Brady wanted to throw the ball. And it's not just those two games, although they were the pinnacle. He made life very, very tough on Aaron Rodgers and other elite passers (15 for 34, 0 TDs and a 59 Rating). The year prior he went into San Diego against a Philip Rivers in his prime and held him to 1 TD, 2 INTs and a 76 rating. There's a lot we can criticize Rex about but he knows QB tendencies, he knows how to defend them and in that regard, he really is a great evaluator of a QBs strengths and weaknesses. 6 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
