Rex Ryan Was Right to Attend Son’s College Game Instead of Jets’ Cut Day

The coach is catching predictable flak from New York media

Rex Ryan

Rex Ryan flew to Clemson on Saturday to watch his son, Seth, a freshman walk-on wide receiver, play his first college football game. Ordinarily, this would be a nice story about an NFL coach having his priorities right and putting family first, but this is Rex Ryan. In New York. With an overreactive tabloid media. You can guess where it goes from here.

The oft-maligned New York Daily News reporter Manish Mehta wrote a 900-word column that suggests Ryan’s decision to be at his son’s first college game is a sign he’s not fully invested in the Jets. It was cut-down day, after all, and even though Ryan was excused from being in New York by general manager John Idzik, being absent from such an important day is unprecedented, according to one unnamed NFC executive quoted in the piece. That executive and Mehta firmly believe the path to the Super Bowl is forged while sifting through the rubble of players deemed not worthy enough to play for the Cleveland Browns.

“Rex Ryan was living it up at a parking lot tailgate Saturday, clad in Clemson gear, posing for pictures with coeds far away from where he needed to be.

He shirked his professional responsibilities for personal ones, Dead Coach Walking in Death Valley, furthering the perception that he’s nothing more than a figurehead patrolling the Jets sidelines these days.”
