Below are some highlights from Rex Ryan's conference call via beat writers on Twitter.
Ryan why no McElroy: "People have played with cracked ribs and it was said to me that he could play." #Jets #NFL— Jane McManus (@janesports) November 23, 2012
Rex said that he told Sparano & Westhoff this about Tebow: "I don't want you to play him." #nyj— Manish Mehta(@MMehtaNYDN) November 23, 2012
Rex: "I think our offense is improving." #nyj— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) November 23, 2012
Rex says they should have played Bart Scott more #nyj— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) November 23, 2012
After last night's fiasco, nothing Rex said was going to sound great, but it makes you wonder whether he even knows what is going on with this team. Tebow could play. The Jets used a roster spot to activate him. Then Rex ordered him not to be played due to the injury? The offense is improving? Bart Scott should have played more?
What is Rex doing? Maybe he's lying through his teeth in which case he just shouldn't talk to the media because this comes off as absurd. Maybe he actually thinks these things make sense, which would be an even bigger problem.
