When the Jets hosted the Cowboys in Week 1, it was the latest opportunity for twin brothers Rex and Rob Ryan to engage in a little sibling rivalry, football style. Rex, in his third season as New York's head coach and Rob, in Year 1 as the Dallas defensive coordinator, matched wits with the Jets eking out a last-minute victory (thanks, in part, to Tony Romo).
As sons of legendary NFL coach Buddy Ryan, it's hardly surprising that Rex and Rob have always been ones to speak their minds. It explains Rex dressing up in a wig last season, and last week Rob calling his brother "a little freaky I guess."
Rob was asked Friday if he'd heard from his brother since the win. Turns out, he has.
"Yeah, he left some really unflattering messages, but it's to be expected,'' Rob said, according to the Dallas Morning News' David Moore. "It's coming back to him one of these days. There is no compassion there at all. No.''
When asked if he could give a PG version of Rex's message Rob offered this: "There was no PG thing about them. I think it was R or worse.''
Sounds about right.
Immediately after the game, Rob could be seen on the field yelling and screaming at no one in particular. It wasn't clear where -- or at whom -- he was directing his anger, but our friends at the Jets Blog speculate it could've been Antonio Cromartie, or perhaps Plaxico Burress, who injured cornerback Mike Jenkins on a peel-back block.
Ryan was asked how long it took to get over the Jets loss.
"Honestly or coach speak?'' Rob said. "Coach speak, Monday. Honestly, probably Thursday.
"It's an unfortunate part of this business. The last few years (I've) lost a lot of games and I'm really sick of it. Each loss seems to be harder. I'm here to win and I know we're going to win. I know we're good enough to win. We've just got to step it up and keep them out of the end zone.''
