    From the article:
    Ryan fumes as Revis beaten out for top defender

    By Sean Brennan, New York Daily News[/COLOR]


    The Jets coach took a not-so-subtle shot at Woodson, whose Packers gave up 51 points in Sunday's overtime loss to the Cardinals last Sunday.

    "A number that I think is interesting would be eight, and no, that's not the amount of touchdown passes that Green Bay gave up against Arizona. That is the number of touchdown passes we gave up all season at the Jets, and the biggest reason for that is Darrelle Revis."


    My rebuttle to what Rex Ryan said is that what happened to Woodson and the packers secondary on Sunday is what happens to even the best defenses when they face a world class QB and an offense with too many weapons. It will happen again this Sunday!!! :icon_toast:

    NEW YORK – As if Rex Ryan needed another reason to sound off, he got one Tuesday when Darrelle Revis was beaten for one of the few times this season.

    The Jets coach was dismayed when Revis lost out to Packers cornerback Charles Woodson for the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year award.

    "You know what I would like? I would like to congratulate the people who voted for Darrelle Revis," Ryan said. "These guys obviously really know the game."

    The Jets coach took a not-so-subtle shot at Woodson, whose Packers gave up 51 points in Sunday's overtime loss to the Cardinals last Sunday.

    "A number that I think is interesting would be eight, and no, that's not the amount of touchdown passes that Green Bay gave up against Arizona. That is the number of touchdown passes we gave up all season at the Jets, and the biggest reason for that is Darrelle Revis."

    Revis had little to say about losing out to Woodson, although the news seemed to sting the usually affable cornerback.

    "He had a great year, did his thing and he won," Revis said. "(Teammates) say I got robbed, but that's just people's opinion. He's the guy this year. But I have nothing to say about Charles Woodson."

    Revis has done a masterful job of shutting down a Who's Who of elite receivers this season, including Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Andre Johnson, Steve Smith, Marques Colston and, of course, Chad Ochocinco.

    He also made six interceptions, giving many reason to believe the lock-down corner had locked up the coveted defensive hardware. But Woodson, an NFL greybeard at 33, grabbed 28 votes to just 14 for Revis after the Packers cornerback tied for the league lead with nine interceptions, including three returned for touchdowns. While Woodson's numbers - he also had 63 tackles to Revis' 47 - were certainly award-winning caliber, the Jets felt Revis was fleeced.

    "You've got to look at all the numbers, not just a number about this or a number about this stat or that stat," Ryan said.

    "Obviously Woodson had a great year and made a ton of plays," Jets safety Jim Leonhard said. "But with what we asked Darrelle to do on a week-to-week basis, nobody does that, especially against the receivers he went up against. It's unbelievable what he's done. About the only other thing he could have done was hopped a flight during the bye week and went one-on-one with Larry Fitzgerald for a couple of hours because he covered everyone else. There really wasn't a whole lot more he could have done this year."

    Revis smiled when asked if facing brand-name receivers week after week ever wears on him.

    "Nope," he said. "It's a part of my job, man."

    Ryan thinks a victory in San Diego Sunday will make Revis forget about not winning the defensive hardware.

    "Revis is going for different hardware right now," Ryan said. "We'll feel a lot better if we can put a ring on our finger than the individual accomplishment."

    I am getting REALLY sick of hearing about Ryan and the Jets. Can't he keep his mouth shut at all?

    Have you even known any Ryan to be quiet? It runs in the family.

    Did you hear Norv or anyone else in the Chargers organization talking **** about other players/teams because Rivers didn't win MVP or Offensive Player of the Year? No, of course not. Because they have class. Revis and Woodson both had stellar years, so it's not out of line for either to get the award. I probably would have given it to Revis, but it's not like it was some kind of absolute travesty, like Jay Cutler making the Pro Bowl last year over Rivers. Ryan needs to learn some class, and some portion control.

    Everything Ryan says is to motivate his team. There's a method to his madness. He wants an "us against the world" attitude in his team. After writing off their chances, he's building them back up. He has the total opposite management style to our Norval. I'd take Norvs understated approach every day of the week, but I'm sure the Jets fans love Rex.

    In fairness to Revis, he's been pretty classy in defeat. FWIW, I think Woodson was the right choice, he was GBs playmaker on defense. The guy had an awesome year.
