    Re: Rex Ryan: "I'm a hell of a lot better football coach than I'm given credit for"



    Funny how once upon a time Flacco and Sanchez were "equals" in people's eyes. Now could the two be further apart? If/when Ryan gets fired, he will surely be bitter about how bad Sanchez is. Sanchez has ruined him. (To be fair, so have many other things, like his own hubris, etc.)

    And to think, Rex himself said that he wanted Sanchez over Freeman, because he liked Sanchez' ability to understand concepts and read defenses.

    I've never seen anyone set themselves up for derogatory remarks than Rex.

    I will admit I was one of those guys who wanted Rex to our HC, but with my impeccable 20/20 hindsight I am so glad he wasn't hired for the job. Just imagine the heartbreak we would have dealt with these past 5 seasons instead of the back to back to back to back to back playoffs run.

    He is awesome as a DC, but he is the Kyle Boller of HC's.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    And yet I'll bet 'analyst' like Hasselback and Evans STILL think they're equals LOL. I think none other then Dilfer actually said he'd take Sanchez OVER Joe as recently as a couple years ago.

    I loved Rex when he was here but glad he isn't our issue anymore. He has become a caricture of himself. And whats more..... his act has now gone stale. Even the national media doesn't drool over his every word and action like they did even a year or so ago.

    This. Rex just can't help himself, he has to constantly open his mouth and make himself look like an even bigger ass with each new quote.

    All of our comments are superfluous: no one can make Fatasaurus Rex look dumber than he can.

    Exactly.

    HARBS would be out of football had he gone to Miami or Buffalo.

    He has Ozzie feeding him. NOt even Andy Reid could blow SB 47 with all the talent Ozzie
    gave him.

    HARBs wouldn't have done any better in NY than Rex and maybe not as well.

    Rex did go to the AFC Championship game twice in a row and with Sanchez. So much for
    offense.

    That said, I can see why Bisciotti wouldn't want Rex as head coach for reasons posted
    above but I still would have loved to see what he might have done with Flacco and
    Rice and especially on the defensive side.

    Of course!
    He is not given a lot of credit for being a great HC, so he has to be better than he is given credit for.

    If you took a test and got a 50/100 and everyone expected you to get 10/100, you did 5 times better than they were giving you credit for. You still failed.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Rex, just don't think he is a great HC. A very smart and savvy DC, but still not a great coach when it comes to overall team issues, not X's and O's
    To understand paranoid people better, follow them around.

    On the other hand, I think Rex could've easily ruined Flacco...

    Sanchez didn't really have the "Cam-Cuffs" on him. I imagine Rex would've tried to turn Flacco loose from the get-go, and Flacco needed some rigidity to pickup the NFL game. Where he would've REALLY had some problems would've been around 2010-2011. We brought in Zorn as QB coach and Flacco did pretty well, but after the season, it was said that Cam and Zorn didn't get along, and Zorn was let go. Joe's development stagnated at that point, and quietly you had some members of the D waffling on their support of Joe.

    Harbaugh is a very diplomatic leader. He focuses a lot more on team unity and respect, and if there are problems, he deals with it more quietly and respectfully. I think Rex at the helm with Joe struggling would've led to a smaller version of what we're seeing in New York. Defense would start ragging on him, Rex would let it happen, and we'd end up with another fractured locker room. Especially when Ray Rice is doing as well as he's doing, D might start questioning why we don't just run the ball more.

    He gets it honest. His dad was the same blow hard, self promoting, ego maniac that Rex is today. However, the truth is that both were great DC's. Their problem is/was that neither understood that being a great DC does not mean that will equate to being a great HC.

    Diplomatic leader? Tell that to Pollard, Boldin and Reed. Everyone left is afraid to open
    his mouth as the players revolted vs HARBS too which led to CAMs dismissal and Caldwell
    taking over and taking us to the SB. Reed was saying on the sideline, this is the lineup
    we wanted. This is the lineup we wanted. It took a revolt to get it.

    Rex would have gone to the SB with Joe and Rice in his backfield.

    HARBs took a page out of Rex's handbook at the end of the SB by blitzing on every play.
    Camden Yard posted some quotes from a business luncheon HARBs spoke at and he told'
    them that he remembered the PHilly game at the end when they moved on us and Vick
    ran it in for the win HARBs said he didn't want K to run it in and ordered his coach to blitz and put the pressure on.

    Rex would have won the PHilly game and the Skins game and would have had the home
    field advantage vs NE the last two years. Every year HARBs loses 2 or 3 games he should
    have won which cost us the home field advantage. Hell, Charlie batch beat him this
    year and Dixon almost beat him. That's 3 wins we should have had and no one from Bmore
    has to trek up to NE.


    That's just a humble freaking opinion.

    LOL...speculation without possibly knowing the outcomes. Meanwhile Harbaugh has 5 consecutive playoff runs, and a Super Bowl ring, but you believe Rex would have done better. I think not! Ask Ravens fans if they would trade JH for Rex, and see the results... Bc
