Rex Ryan Disappointed With Quinton Coples' Weight Room Ethic

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

According to Brian Costello:

Kristian Dyer then had this to say:

This sounds remarkably similar to last offseason when he critiqued Jeremy Kerley's work ethic, and Kerley then decided to show up and have a great season (especially considering he was really the only threat and who was throwing him the ball). If there's anybody that knows how to push the right buttons on a player, it's Rex Ryan.

As a result, I'm not going to weigh this too heavily. Rex is a master at motivation, and, like I said, knows how to get players, especially on defense, to perform better. He's so rare in his public criticisms of his own players that I have to trust he knows what he's doing on the rare occasion he does so.
