    New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said the game ball he sent Marty Schottenheimer after the Jets' Divisional round victory in San Diego was not because the former Chargers coach provided any intelligence but just for being a good guy -- and the father of Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schootenheimer.

    "I wanted to let him know how much I appreciate him," Ryan said. "And I know how much that game meant to Brian. It's always special after you leave a place."

    Brian Schottenheimer served as Chargers quarterbacks coach under his father.

    It seems Ryan is just a sentimental guy.

    Ryan sent his father, former coach Buddy Ryan, a game ball after the Jets' Wild Card victory over Cincinnati.

    "My dad never won a playoff game," Rex Ryan said. "I know Marty got close."

    :icon_huh:

    Didn't Buddy Ryan coach the defense for the 1985 Super Bowl winning Bears?

    Maybe he was talking as a Head Coach, but still...

    If so, then Marty wasn't close, he won several playoff games, his playoff record is 5-13


    damn dude, have another Twinkie
