Ryan muses on Johnson, Jets’ “embrassing” D

Posted by Nick Scurfield on November 17, 2010 – 11:00 am

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan spoke with a group of Houston reporters via conference call this morning.

Here are some snippets from the interview, which lasted a very entertaining 15 minutes:

On the key to getting out of a 4-5 hole last year: “I’ll tell the key after the game. No, I’m just kidding. I just think you do what you believe in.”

On Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson: “He’s a matchup nightmare. Obviously, in my opinion, he’s the best receiver in football, so it doesn’t get any tougher than that. But the only corner in the league that would dare try to cover this guy man coverage is Darrelle Revis. In my opinion, and it’s not even close, he’s the best corner in football, and those two guys go at it. You’ve got the best corner against the best receiver in the game, and that’s going to be a great matchup, great to watch.”

On Texans running back Arian Foster: “Whoo! You know, it’s like, wow. He’s really doing it. I mean, averaging 5.3 a carry, already 930 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns, I think that speaks for itself. But he’s a big, strong guy. He hits it. He’s, uh, you know… wow. I mean, did he burst on the scene this year?”

On the challenges for a rookie corner like Kareem Jackson: “Kareem Jackson’s going to be an outstanding player – an outstanding player… It’s just a different game. The skill level is phenomenal in this league. You may have a guy covered in college, what you think is covered in college, well, that’s open in the NFL… Everybody makes mistakes. They’re all going to get beat. I mean, Darrelle Revis gave up a touchdown this year. You know, those things happen. But the guys that make it are the ones that can learn from it and take coaching.”

On the resurgence of running back LaDainian Tomlinson: “I just see that, you know, this is still LaDainian Tomlinson. And if somebody’s expecting somethin’ else, good luck to you, because he’s still go the great moves, he’s got speed, he’s got vision, he’s great out of the backfield, he’s doing a great job in pass protection and oh, by the way, he can really run the football.”

On the Jets’ defense, which ranks fifth in the league in yards allowed per game: “We’ll end up being the top defense in the league, and that’s my opinion, when it’s all said and done. That’s how it always is. I think the worst I ever finished when I was a D-coordinator was sixth in the league in total defense, so I expect the numbers will improve. It’s a little embarrassing being where we’re at now.”

On the Hail Mary pass that beat the Texans in Week 10: “The young man (Glover Quin) did exactly what you’re coached. You’ve got to knock it straight down, but the kid was doing what you teach a guy. It’s just one of those unlucky bounces … I don’t think I’ve ever seen that, though, with a guy literally knocking the ball down and a guy catching it. It’s amazing.”
