Rex Ryan Has Some Thoughts About This Whole Defensive Player Of The Year Thing

The normally taciturn and reserved Rex Ryan has a few thoughts on the Darrelle Revis snub, and while those thoughts do not include "Charles Woodson is fat," which is what I would have led with, they're worth a read:

"I would like to congratulate the people that voted for Darrelle Revis. These guys obviously really know the game. And you've got to look at all the numbers, not just a number about this, or this stat or that stat.

"A number I think is interesting would be eight. And no, that's not the amount of touchdown passes Green Bay gave up against Arizona. That is the number of touchdown passes we gave up all season. And the biggest reason for that is Darrelle Revis.

"There's plenty of things to look at. We had the No. 1 defense in the National Football League, by 35 yards a game. We were No. 1 in scoring ... basically 187 points is all the defense gave up all season. That might be a consideration for NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

"And it really was for the people that voted for Darrelle Revis. I tip my hat to them because they really know the game. That's all I'm going to say about it."

No, Rex Ryan ain't happy. And when Rex Ryan ain't happy, if you haven't noticed, things usually get pretty entertaining. Stay tuned.
