Ryan endures bashing

|

A sampling of tweets on Rex Ryan’s decision to play Mark Sanchez – who injured his right shoulder – late in the Jets’ preseason win over the Giants, and then Ryan’s reaction to post-game questions:
“I don’t think Rex Ryan understands at all what he did by putting Sanchez in the game. Not a good sign for a head coach.” – Brad Carroll, Executive Sports Editor of The Bristol Press and New Britain Herald
“Rex Ryan should be fired tomorrow for what transpired tonight. To mismanage a franchise in a preseason game that way can’t be tolerated.” – Jason Page, host of NBC Sports Radio
“Story of night, maybe season: Rex erred big time by playing Sanchez, who had already secured starting job. Sanchez didn’t expect to play.” – Rich Cimini, Jets writer for ESPNNewYork.com
“Sanchez has had a history of stingers. Why was he in the game? Dumb.” – Cimini
“The Jets are starting to get to Rex Ryan.” – SB Nation, with a film clip of the post-game press conference
