NFL Combine: Rex Ryan steals the show
Rex Ryan stole the show. In the button-down world of the NFL, the New York Jets coach stands alone as an entertaining personality. Ryan took the podium Saturday at the NFL Combine and regaled the media with his self-deprecation.
Since coaching the Jets to the AFC title game with the Ryan brand of bravado and bluster, Ryan has made news for flipping off the crowd at a Mixed Martial Arts fight in Miami and wearing a Philadelphia Flyers jersey at a Carolina Hurricanes hockey game, drawing boos.
“I appreciate everybody’s interest in making sure I was still in the papers,” Ryan said. “And the video.”
Ryan was talking about switching jerseys at the hockey game, when his gut was exposed for all to see.
“I’m watching ESPN, ooh, that’s not a real good shot,” Ryan said. “Don’t get me wrong. I get hit on all the time by women.”
But Ryan refuses to apologize for his antics.
“I’m just going to be myself,” Ryan said. “Maybe I have unique way of doing things. But I have to be that way.
