From the beginning of time, we have learned about the process of evolution. The evolution of man is a popular topic in school science classes. From the early caveman through today, man constantly evolves and changes. From dinosaurs to today’s animals, same thing. If we take a look at coach Rex Ryan, we see a similar evolution going through today.
2009, Rex Ryan arrived in town. Much like the caveman, he would pound his chest and make exclamations. “Me win Super Bowl”. “Me no kiss Belichick rings”. Then, much like any new species that arrives, the other existing living things aren’t sure what to do with this new creature. As such, the Jets made their way to the AFC championship game, and nearly the Super Bowl. Then, the futuristic mammal (Peyton Manning) just saw Rex Ryan as fresh meat, sized him up for a half, and was able to put the new caveman coach in his place.
In 2010, feeding on his previous successes, Rex Ryan made similar boasts. His communication skills evolved, but still made the same predictions. “We win Super Bowl this time”. A showing of improved communication, much as the evolution of man, but with similar results. The Jets got better, went 11-5, but couldn’t pass the evolved species (Tom Brady) to win the division, and then were taken out again by the evolved(Ben Rothlisberger).
