The New York Jets fired Rex Ryan on Black Monday! The Buffalo Bills hired him as their new Head Coach! Old news I know, but you’d never know it if you read the local sports coverage!  The Jets new general manager is making less news in New York City than Rex is!

I’m tired of waking up daily, turning to the sports sections to read up on the Jets and finding Rex stories instead! He’s gone! Done! Finished!! Rex Ryan is no longer relevant concerning the New York Jets!! Period! End of Story!!

I get that a lot of fans liked Rex! I can understand the fans that lament the firing! The endless articles, blogs and tweets concerning Rex Ryan have become sickening though. Even yesterday, when the Jets finalized the deal to make Todd Bowles the head coach, the Ryan love affair continued!  It’s time to end the nonsense and move on!

Rex Ryan and Jim Kelly had a beer together on eve of Ryan’s introduction with Buffalo Bills:

Head lines and tweets like the one above can cease now in my opinion! I couldn’t care less what Rex Ryan was doing last night! Rex Ryan and Jim Kelly sharing a beer is not not relevant news! I just hope between the two of them, they had the brains not to drive home drunk! Here’s another we could do without!

Is Rex’s attendance at a Buffalo Sabres game relevant? Hell No! Even the fact that Jets assistants attended the game is irrelevant! We will likely lose some assistants to the Bills franchise, so what!! End the needless love affair with Rex Ryan already!!

Greetings from Buffalo: 5 things to expect from Rex Ryan’s first Bills press conference here Wednesday

I don’t care what Rex Ryan is expected to say in his first Bills press conference either! It’s not Jets news!! In fact, there are beat writers in Buffalo to cover it! It’s ridiculous! The Jets have breaking news, and these guys are still covering Rex Ryan!! Enough already!!

OK guys here’s my promise, I will not mention Rex Ryan again in one of my pieces! This is the last time I will mention Rex until next season when he coaches against the Jets! I’m moving on!

I don’t care about Rex Ryan. I’ve had enough of his press conferences! I don’t care where he eats dinner, or who he shares a beer with. I don’t care who his next offensive coordinator or defensive coordinator will be! I could care less what his opinions are concerning the Jets organization either!  He hasn’t said much, but you know its coming!

More from Jets News

Rex Ryan is the FORMER head coach of the New York Jets. He spent six years with the franchise and won nothing! He left with a losing record and the franchise was a media circus when he was here! You can call me a Rex Ryan hater if you wish. I’ve never been a Ryan supporter and I’ve never pretended to be. I do not have anything against Rex Ryan personally, I’m just of the opinion it was time for him to go. I wish Rex all the luck in the world in Buffalo.

As for him being news worthy in New York City, he’s not. Let’s all move on and put the Rex Ryan era behind us! Let’s instead focus on the New York Jets! Let’s end the “Ryan Obsession”! I’m done, end of my rant. Time for discussion. Let’s talk Jets football!!
