Say what you want about Rex Ryan, but - as long as he is nowhere near your football team - he is one entertaining son of a bitch. Shit, the fact that he has a sense of humor and a personality might be his biggest downfall as a Head Coach. There's simply not enough hours in the week to prepare for Sunday AND get these jokes off. If there was then is there any doubt that Bill Belichick would have the media in stitches with a weekly string of knee-slappers?
This is Rexy we are talking about though. You can't expect him to let a little game-planning get in the way of his 'Crank Yankers' comedy routine. In case you weren't paying attention, the Bills just beat the Cardinals so their coach deserves to take a little break from strategizing and start prank calling upcoming opponents. Plus, what good is winning if you can't get your 'Walt Patulski' on and remind everyone that you're generally a pretty lovable guy away from the sidelines? What's the point of even coaching football if you don't come off as someone that would be a hell of a time after 8-12 beers?
The irony is that Rex Ryan would probably be better off if his name were Walt Patulski. Sure, him and his brother have been EATING off the reputation their late, great father Buddy, but it all goes downhill once they are put in charge and people realize they didn't get the entirety of the defensive wizardry gene. If Rex's last name wasn't Ryan then he would just be any other sub-par NFL head coach, instead of having to carry-on the family legacy for a legend. Much better spot for a fun-loving player's coach with little-to-no command of how to run an offense to be in.
