    Re: “Now, we’ll find out if little Johnny can coach.”



    Who are we kiddin, it was Rex. He's the only one stupid enough to say something like that. I've tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and never had any personal animosity towards him with respect to the time he spent here working to make the Ravens better. But I'm done with that idiot. I hope they go 0-16 and they make him suffer through all 16 games and then shitcan him on Black Monday. Then he can spout off like his brother did about being unemployed for 5 minutes while he waits for a month with no offers. Screw him. I am so so glad that Bish went with Harbaugh and brought professionalism to this team. Rex is a clown who's team's are a circus.

    Do you honestly believe that any coach confides in Mike Preston?

    Rex Ryan is a loudmouth. He wouldn't hide behind Preston. He'd come out and say it like all the dumb shit he's constantly talking about.

    Tomlin and Marvin are too classy to do something like this. Belechick doesn't talk to anyone.

    I can't take anything Preston says seriously.

    GOTA brings up a good point, Rex is not smart enough to hide behind the media.

    Besides, if it's even true, when Preston says coach he could be talking about any assistant out there. Now, would an assistant say something like that under anonymity? It's certainly possible.

    Re: “Now, we’ll find out if little Johnny can coach.”

    I believe that the comment is really a misquote. I think what Mike Preston meant was that a wannabe coach and current opinion piece writer for a certain local newspaper's sports section said to himself, "Now, we'll find out if little Johnny can coach, because I know I should be on that staff right now."

    ab-
    Ya beat me to the punch, mon ami! I was literally getting ready to type in thoughts similar to that and others - who in the wide world of sports is leaking snide remarks to Mike Preston, of all people?

    And if you think about this in context, IMHO only someone who is distraught about Harbaugh's success at a personal level would tend to think/comment like that. Sure, every HC in the league is probably a bit "jealous" of Harbaugh, but what would motivate a head coach (and I'm assuming from what I've read in this thread that that is the role we are hearing about) to offer such a shitty remark, knowing that it would be publicized if one were to make it to a "national beat reporter".

    Further, why wouldn't anybody with a hair on their ass not cast these (again, IMHO) misguided aspersions at Ozzie and the Ravens owner? Sure, be jealous and piss on the guy who got the job, but if you haven't got the balls to criticize the guys who made the selection of Harbaugh in the same breath (maybe because you wouldn't want to alienate the guys who MIGHT suddenly decide to switch coaches in midstream??? Right!), please refer to wickedsolo comments, post #2...

    If someone wrote with 'icing' on a donut "AFC COACH" held it up to their ear, I am sure they could get all sorts of quotes from it.

    That is the first thing I thought but the reference is to an AFC Head Coach. When I read the quote I first thought of Hue Jackson until I saw the HC reference.

    Either way, IF it were true (and considering the source that is a big IF), then whoever says something like that is not a professional. Of course, birds of a feather flock together, so one unprofessional person talking to another is credible.

    However, this is a good opportunity to say "Fuck Mike Preston".

    Seriously, fuck that guy.
    Agreed, if it was said it was probably Rex, but it is also something sounds like something Preston may make up. Preston likes to have his stuff wind up on Twitter or national stuff so he is not above that.

    Re: “Now, we’ll find out if little Johnny can coach.”

    I read through the article and thought it was pretty dead-on. People seem to just get pissed at Preston because of his sarcasm and the fact he sometimes delivers truths that people don't want to hear. Yeah, he's gone over the top in the past and gives in to his biases a bit too easily, but overall he's good entertainment.

    If he quoted it, it probably happened. And as he keeps up communications with ex-Ravens (J Lewis, McCrary) it's not a great leap to assume it was Rex who said it.

    I wish you would stop being politically correct and just tell us how you really feel. I have been saying it for years, Rex is his old man. Buddy was a class 1 asshole, but the dude could coach some defense. Same with Rex. The problem with the whole Ryan clan is that what pleasures them the most is killing them. Their mouth!

    Preston's been taking shots about Harbaugh's overly disciplined style, his doghouse, etc. while he keeps beating his made-up drum about now its Harbaughs team. He can't have it both ways. It wasn't Harbaugh's team 5 years ago when he told McAllister to take a hike? That sent a message a new sheriff was in town. I like Lewis and Reed as much as anyone, but Preston's crediting them with being somehow as influential as a HC. I don't buy it. And if not 100% his team that first year, damn sure was after Rex left.

    It might have been a stupid, flip comment from someone like Kubiak or Fox. I doubt it. I can't imagine Tomlin or Lewis would say something like that. Their teams may be (for different reasons) loathesome, but they have both been pretty classy.

    My guess is it's Rex. After all, it's someone who would talk to Preston, right? Tied for a distant second are Kubiak & Fox.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    BS, people don't like Preston not BECAUSE he tells the truth, it's because he rarely does. He's the kind of guy who puts out a bunch of conjecture and throws it against the wall and see's what sticks. Every once in a while he gets it right, well la dee frikin da. The guys is, alwys was, and always will be nothing more than a hack.
