Rex Ryan bashes Robert Saleh, Jets defense following Week 10 blowout

The Jets protection set with each other an additional rough demonstrating Sunday from Buffalo.

The Jets haven’t experienced their No. one quarterback — Zach Wilson — due to the fact 7 days 7.

But that is not even close to the only challenge surrounding this battling two-7 ballclub.

The Gang Inexperienced protection has been horrendous and has authorized at minimum 45 points in 3 of its previous 4 online games. The hottest disaster arrived at the hands of the Charges on Sunday — Buffalo defeated New York 45-17.

Robert Saleh, a former defensive coordinator of the 49ers, was (partly) introduced in to resolve Gang Green’s challenges at that end of the area. Some have minimal self-assurance in the initial-calendar year head coach while, and that incorporates a former head coach of this pretty franchise.

“I search at it as this protection is abysmal,” ESPN’s Rex Ryan explained on the network’s DiPietro and Rothenberg show. “Bart [Scott] was telling that to me, ‘Oh no, their protection is taking part in tough.’ I’m like what? No, they really do not. This is a horrendous protection. Now they are likely to use, ‘Well now we did not have our protection.’ So what? Most people has a million injuries enable alone above average protection you are missing. I recall taking part in without the need of five corners. It by no means looked like this. We have been fifth in the league in protection that calendar year.”

The protection Ryan is talking about takes place to be Marcus Maye, who endured a year-ending Achilles tear in the 7 days nine decline to Indianapolis. The Jets must now shift forward with Ashtyn Davis, Sharrod Neasman, and Jarrod Wilson manning the deep element of the area.

Like Saleh, Ryan was defensive-minded. But if you at any time find oneself talking to the coach-turned-analyst, do not review him to the latest occupant of his former situation.

“This male was supposed to be a defensive guru,” Ryan explained. “I heard almost everything and I get it private on this one particular. Every little thing I’ve heard about was, effectively this guy’s a good deal like myself, but without the need of the undesirable element. Yeah, effectively some of the undesirable pieces you require due to the fact this workforce doesn’t participate in with any damn coronary heart. Which is the detail that is disappointing to me. Do not at any time review this male to me, this Robert Saleh to me.

“Statistically, one particular time they have been like a major protection. Here’s one particular detail they are likely to be familiar with: Four out of five years the 49ers have been dead previous in their division. So he’s likely to be dead previous again, so he’s utilised to that. So to me, I’m a minimal pissed off about it that this male, his background’s a good deal like yours. No it is not, no it is not.

“Quit seeking to tell the New York fan foundation that he’s likely to be like me as a defensive-minded male or whichever. I experienced a clue how to manage a rookie quarterback. I also by no means bought my butt kicked like this in a 4-match extend ever…Never built excuses and by no means set a solution out there like this.”

Although the Jets are without a doubt missing various starters on the defensive end, including Maye and Carl Lawson (who ruptured his Achilles prior to the normal year), the challenges from that device are inexcusable.

Even with a defensive-minded head coach, the team is at the bottom of the league in terms of whole protection and scoring — describing this as “not ideal” would be a whole understatement.
