Rex needs to listen to Trevor Pryce Dan Leberfeld
Trevor Pryce offered Rex Ryan some “friendly-fire” in a New York Times’ editorial.
This paragraph pretty much sums up the thrust of Pryce’s column –
“Being an N.F.L. coach is the ultimate study in “him or me” politics,” wrote Pryce, a former NFL defensive end who played for Ryan in Baltimore and with the Jets. “You have to be willing to sacrifice just about anyone in your organization for the greater good.”
Ryan is loyal to players to the point of hurting his team.
Going back to Mark Sanchez, after Greg McElroy led the team to a win over Arizona in relief, is a perfect example of this.
Ryan seems to have a hard time pulling the trigger on line-up changes, or cuts, that are needed, because he doesn’t want to hurt players.
Unless he changes this personality trait, he’s not going to last much longer as an NFL head coach.
Ryan needs to laminate Pryce’s New York Times piece and hang it on his office wall.
