Here is the transcript of Rex Ryan’s press conference from Jets headquarters in Florham Park, NJ, including an injury report as always, courtesy of the team :
Two things that I guess we’ll start with. First off will be the hat, we’ll be wearing these hats the first responders, one of the three first responders. The port authority, the police department —- the NYPD — and New York’s fire department obviously. They’re going to go on sale. We’ll be wearing these hats on Sunday. They’ll be on sale at the stadium and the proceeds will go to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, so that ought to be a great thing.
Now we’ll talk about the injuries. We have Logan Payne and Rob Turner, out. I’ll mention them every day until they play if you’d rather me do that, that’s fine. Those kids will be out. Guys that were limited in practice were [Mark] Brunell with the calf, John Conner, ankle. Guys that were full but we’ll talk about: Plaxico [Burress] with the ankle, [Jeff] Cumberland, hamstring, [Marcus] Dixon, knee, Kenrick Ellis, hamstring, Derrick Mason, knee, Joe McKnight and Brandon Moore, illness, Ropati [Pitoitua], ankle, Sione [Pouha] with a knee, and [Darrelle] Revis with a hip. With that list, it’s going to be amazing that we can play, but they’re all going to play almost, except for those first two. But either way, that’s the injury list.
On how he’ll feel during the ceremony at Sunday’s game on the 10th anniversary of 9/11…
I think it’ll definitely be emotional, to me and everybody that is there and probably people that are watching around the country. I would assume it’s going to be emotional for everybody. But in particular with this region, this area, when you talk about 2,753 people perishing in New York alone, I think it’s going to be very emotional for a lot of people. But obviously, I’ll be like everybody else, I’m sure.
On how different the defensive style of his twin brother, Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, is from his own…
I think we’re fraternal that way, just like we’re fraternal anyway. There are some differences, a lot. He’ll bring a lot of corner pressures, he’ll do a lot of stuff from under Belichick’s tutelage. So we’re definitely different. He has probably his own trademark of defense, and so do we here. The Rex Ryan, Mike Pettine and Dennis Thurman defense.
