Rex Ryan Opening Monologue Dan Leberfeld

Here is Rex Ryan’s opening statement from his Monday press conference . . .

“Based on the limited cameras here, you can tell we won the game (joking).

“What you want to accomplish (is) coming out of there going 1-0 and that’s obviously what we did.

“But there’s a lot of things that we need to get better at. You’re in a great spot, especially when you’re coming off a victory, that (if) we get these things cleared up, how much better it could have been and not leaving ourselves vulnerable like that.

“Quite honestly, if you watch the tape, we dominated the game. It’s almost three-to-one in yardage. (We) dominated upfront, I thought (that) was where it started.

“Quarterback, there’s so many positive things when I look at Geno (Smith) and what he did. Obviously, (when) you throw 80 percent completion rate, we’ll take that. I don’t know how many times that’s happened, but I can’t remember it happening with me being a head coach, anyway. Then we had a couple of throws that I think were there also for us.

“Taking care of the football is something that we talk about. Obviously, we have to do a better job of that. And then getting take-aways. We had a couple opportunities where the ball was right there. Mo almost had two of them which obviously would have been great. It’s something we’ve just got to keep working at, and keep stressing it, and hopefully we’ll start taking the ball away.

“We had an injury to (A.J.) Edds. That’s a hamstring. That’s really the only significant injury we had out of this game, so that was good.”
