The Other Side of the Rex Ryan Way

It started back with Darrelle Revis in 2009. He praised Darrelle as the best in the league, and rightfully so. I am not saying his praise is incorrect, it’s just over the top. He praised him, and he praised him, and he praised him. Eventually, Revis’ head greew, and he began to know he was the best. Sometimes it’s OK to be the best, but not necessarily “know” that you are the best. Once he knew it, we were headed towards the now famous hold out.

And why shouldn’t Revis have held out? He kept being told that he was the best player in the league on defense. If you heard that every day, especially from your boss, wouldn’t you eventually think you should be paid like it? He couldn’t be blamed for it, he is human. The point is, Revis didn’t start to think like that until Rex started going on and on with his praise.

Now we hear that after last night, it could be spreading to Quinton Coples. Apparently, Rex had to deal with Coples exhibiting a “diva” attitude. Take a look at what he said after the game:

“I wasn’t as happy this game as I was previously,” Ryan said. “I thought he kind of got winded a bit. He kind of had a ‘woe is me’ when we took out the starters. Hey look, you are still a rookie, you’ve got to play the whole game and then some.”
