Rex Ryan picked up the phone and called on New York Jets fans for some help against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The head coach recorded a 70-second message that was sent to every season-ticket holder Wednesday, urging Jets fans to make it “miserable for Brady & Co. and seem like there’s 13 or 14 guys out there on defense” during Sunday’s game at the Meadowlands.
“Hey, this is Rex Ryan, the head coach of the New York Jets,” Ryan began the message. “I just wanted to let you know how much we need you this week. You know, I’ve already admitted that, hey, the Patriots have a better head coach and they’ve got a better quarterback than us. But we’re going to see who’s got a better team.” – Associated Press
