Rex Ryan Is Making IK Enemkpali (The Quarterback Murderer) A Captain For Their Game Against The Jets
I have a request. Can we collectively come together and just admit that we love Rex Ryan? I'm not saying we need to say that he's a great, or even a good, football coach. I'm not saying we need to acknowledge his antics as anything other than childish. I'm just saying that I love the guy, and if you appreciate a good laugh then you should too. Do I want him in charge of my team? Of course not, but I need him to remain in the league. If for no other reason than to continue trolling, either successfully or unsuccessfully, the other players and coaches that he calls coworkers. There's no one else is willing to go out on a limb and say "we are trying to create a team of bullies" and mean it. There's no other coach that is worried about who he's sending out for the coin toss in hopes of poking fun at his competition. Do those tactics create a winning environment? Well, judging by the amount of penalties the Bills have been taking and their perfectly mediocre record I am going to say probably not. However, they do create an environment of entertainment, and I think I speak for fans of all teams when I say we could never get enough of that.
I got to say, I was on board when Rex sent out all the ex-Dolphins for the coin toss against their former team, but I just don't see this move going over as well. If the point is to mock your opponent than this falls an lK Enemkpali arm length short of the intended goal. The players that the Jets send out for the coin toss might actually get on bended knee and kiss the hand of IK Enemkpali. The best thing he ever did for the Jets was knock out their starting starting quarterback. If he didn't then Ryan Fitzpatrick would probably still be starting this game, but it would be because Geno Smith played them into an 0-8 hole. This wouldn't be a joke at the expense of the Jets, it would be a joke at the expense of Geno Smith. Which, now that I think about it, makes perfect sense, considering his failures are what inevitably got Rex canned. This might turn into a full blown lovefest at midfield and Geno Smith might be the only person not invited. Poor bastard fucked around and literally got knocked from the ranks of starting quarterback, and his chances of getting it back are so slim that his former head coach feels comfortable laughing at his misfortune. Let that be a lesson to you. Bad things happen can happen when you don't settle your debts. A nationally broadcasted celebration of your mistakes might be an extreme example of that, but it's an example nonetheless.
