Rex’s monologue on his defense Dan Leberfeld
Florham Park – Aside from a couple of plays they would want back, the Jets’ defense was outstanding in their win over Buffalo
Here is Rex Ryan’s overview of what he saw from his defense against the Bills . . .
“The thing that jumps out at you, or jumped out at me – the play of the defensive line. Any time you get eight sacks, you’re going to recognize that.
“I recognized the coverage as well. I liked the way Dee (Milliner) responded. I thought he played well. Kyle (Wilson) was having a really good game and then I think he let a personal thing affect him. And the thing about that (is that) it affects the team.
“Kyle’s a smart player, but that’s a mistake, so we have to learn from it and we’ll move on. But, learn from it all the same. Cro (Antonio Cromartie) had a tremendous game for us. He gave up one completion, for like five yards.
“Up front, Quinton Coples played 60 plays. Look, did we think he (was) going to play 60 plays? No way. The thing is he was playing great. He did a tremendous job. I think he had a couple hits on the quarterback and he had a couple TFLs (tackle for loss). He was outstanding as a rusher backer, as a defensive end, as a defensive tackle, we moved him all over. (With this being his) first game back, off that kind of injury, (you) just tip your hat to him. The guy wants it. I’ve been telling you he’s hungry and having him out there was a great thing for us.
“Muhammad Wilkerson, ok, a so, so game. (joking) Two sacks, five hits on the quarterback (and) I don’t know how many tackles. So, (we’re) happy with him “I’m happy with the way Snacks (Damon Harrison) is playing, so really that whole group is playing well.
“One guy to say a guy’s overshadowed and it’s David Harris. David was tremendous. This is about as good a game I’ve seen David play in maybe a long, long time. He did not have an interception or anything, but he’s moving fast, he’s blitzing really well and doing a great job tackling.”
