Here is the full transcript of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan’s press conference following the Jets 45-19 loss to the Eagles on Sunday, courtesy of the New York Jets:

HEAD COACH REX RYAN

Obviously a horrendous performance by us, that goes without saying. One thing we entered the game thinking we had to run the table and that we’d control our own destiny. We come out of the game, we need to win the rest of the games to control our own destiny, so it does count just for one game. But obviously, that was about as bad as it gets, especially in the first half and early in the third quarter, we couldn’t stop them on defense, we were turning the ball over on offense. It was just a terrible performance, obviously. But with that I’ll open it up for questions.

On the play of the offensive and defensive line and how to rebound for next week…

With the challenge that’s in front of us, when you look at them, the Giants are, I know they got beat today, but I know they’ve been one of the best offenses in the league. And then obviously on defense, they can really get after the passer. So it’s going to be a similar challenge to what it was this week, but obviously we’d better play a zillion times better.

On his reactions to this loss after playing well the previous three weeks…

Well, I’m obviously disappointed. Shocked, I guess. I never thought they would score six out of seven possessions on us at one point. That’s ridiculous. They’re decent, they’re a good offense and all that, but we made them look…I mean I don’t know what to say. You know, I want to give them credit because obviously they played a heck of a game, Philadelphia did and we didn’t.

On if he is disappointed with WR Santonio Holmes’ game…

Yeah, obviously I’m disappointed. I mean when your best player turns the ball over twice, directly, I mean, that’s a disappointment. But that was kind of the way the day was. We all can look in the mirror and find fault. And it starts with me, I’m sure they feel the same way, all of our guys do—every coach, every player. But that was the kind of day it was for us. And like I say, you got to give the Eagles credit, they made a ton of plays on us.
