The New York Jets got blown out by the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Rex Ryan can’t bear to watch it again and won’t watch the film. Instead he has handed out grade sheets to the players and instructed them to do some homework, watch it themselves.
“We handed out all the grade sheets to the players and they’re going to watch the tape on their own but for us to sit in there, go over and it again, when we know exactly what happened, I though it would be more beneficial to move on to New Orleans,” Ryan said Monday, via the New York Daily News. “Anybody that was on the sideline or played in that game knows what happened: we got our butts kicked.”
“I never buried the football this time,” Ryan went on. “What happened happened, but you’re better off, we better move forward. That’s why I did what I did.”
Ryan is referencing an incident in 2010, when the Jets were blown out by the New England Patriots. He skipped the team’s film study and gathered the team together to bury the game ball.
