Rex Ryan said he needs an offense that reflects who he is, but what is that? Ryan didn’t have any interest in offensive football, he’s a defensive guy.
Now he wants someone who has the same mentality as him, wouldn’t that be newly departed Tony Sparano? Ryan acknowledged that the ground and pound is old and antiquated, but what does he want to develop offensively?
The coach speak sounds good, but how can someone who doesn’t have any interest in the offensive side of the ball have a sound philosophy?
However, before finding the new offensive mind to get the Jets on track, Ryan talked about 2012, and what he did wrong concerning the offense:
“I don’t think I’ve done as good a job of implementing who I am throughout this team,” Ryan said. “I want a physical, aggressive, attack-style of football team," according to Michael David Smith of profootballtalk.com.
Offense, defense and all that. . . . I don’t think I’ve done a good enough job of getting that through to the entire football team.
Certainly I think it’s gotten through to defense and special teams. I don’t think it necessarily got through offensively. That’s what I want.”
“I want somebody with that same type of belief I have,” Ryan said.
