Breakfast with Jets coach Rex Ryan

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan isn’t kidding when he says he does things his way and always keeps his body clock on East Coast time. He spoke with the Bay Area media Wednesday morning, more than 2 hours before the Raiders begin practice.
As usual, Ryan had plenty of interesting things to say, including his love for rookie wide receiver Denarius Moore, how he thinks quarterback Jason Campbell is playing and how serious he was about signing former Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha to a long-term contract before this season started.
Here are a few tidbits from the conference call with Ryan, with more to come later.

On Moore, whom the Raiders selected in the fifth round of this year’s NFL draft:
“We really liked him, and I’m sure the young man can tell you that,” Ryan said. “We had him in for a visit. We really did like him. It never worked out for us. I tell you what, he had a huge game this past week, with about 150 yards receiving and a reverse for 25 yards. He really did a nice job. That catch he made in double coverage against Buffalo was big time.”

Ryan also said he recalls seeing Campbell before he entered the NFL.
“I just see a guy that has a bazooka for an arm,” Ryan said. “He can make all the throws. I remember going to his workout at Auburn, and he was sitting on a knee and threw the ball like 60 yards, and I was like, ‘Golllyyy.’ He has that kind of arm talent, he really does. He’s got some mobility and now he’s been in the league a long time, so he’s at his best right now. This is probably the best I’ve seen of Jason Campbell.”

Ryan has worked with numerous current Raiders coaches in the past. It’s obvious he holds them in high regard.
“I coached together with Hue (Jackson) and I coached together with John Fassel,” Ryan said. “Bob Wylie, I coached with (him) at the University of Cincinnati. Rod Woodson, of course, as a player. I know a lot of these guys. It’s good. They’re all good guys, passionate coaches. and I wish ‘em the best … except when they play us.”

Ryan dismissed the notion of the Jets being at a huge disadvantage without the services of center Nick Mangold this Sunday.
“Well, just like Darrelle Revis is the best corner in football, Nick Mangold is the best center in football,” Ryan said. “So, clearly that will hurt. There’s only one Nick Mangold in the league, but we’ve had to replace good players in the past. Revis went out for a couple of games last year. We had Kris Jenkins out, really played five games in two years. We’re a team, we’re not just individuals and all that stuff. We’re a team
“We’ll replace them. Next man steps up. As long as long as you’re wearing that Jet decal, you’re expected to play at a certain level and a certain temperment, and the next guy will be Baxter, and I’m sure he’ll do a good job.”

Ryan said the Jets went after Asomugha hard during the offseason and made an offer, which is more than the Raiders did.
“I’d say we definitely went after him,” Ryan said. “We made an offer to him that we thought was fair and we never came off it one bit. We just made the one offer, and he chose to sign somewhere else for more money. Obviously, we recognize he’s an outstanding player but that’s one that got away. We did not come off our offer one bit.”

    I think the Jets and Pats will sell out. There aren’t too many tickets left in ticketmaster with the exception of Club Seats which aren’t counted towards a sell out
    ****************************

    Those were already guaranteed to sellout….no suprise there…..KC game will be as well so will the Bears and SD game…Denver and Detriot I dont know….Cleveland may be tough unless we are 4-1 then thats sold

    The best thing about playing the Patriots, week 4?

    The Patriots playing the Jets week 5!

    Jacoby Ford (hamstring) missed Raiders practice Wednesday.
    Ford was spotted in sweats near the trainers’ table at the start of the workout, and it’s unclear if he’s anywhere close to practicing. Ford plays flanker in Oakland’s offense, so he doesn’t necessarily affect the depth chart at “X” receiver — where Denarius Moore is pushing Darrius Heyward-Bey (knee). Derek Hagan and Chaz Schilens rotated at flanker in Week 2.

    According to STATS, opponents 4-14 passing against Routt for lowest pct in NFL among any defender targeted at least 10 times….

    I like the Commodores…

  • kokomo

    Chris Johnson isn’t practicing today. Now if he doesn’t play on sun, it’s a big concern. Not that he was great anyway

    does Kell listen to Michael Bolton now days?

    Some of you have issues: saying we match up well with the Jets and its winnable but the pariots will be a tough match? The jets beat the patriots in the playoffs. They have before. They have been in 2 straight AFC championship games. We were 8-8 last year with losses to Arizona, JAX, and I won’t say anymore. This is a great defense (jets) and a Offense that does enough to close out games consistently when the game is close. Denarius Moore looked great riiiight? now he will be defended by Revis/Cromartie. While Bart Scott is blitzing down our throat. This is a very very hard game. If we win this, we have arrived. If not, then expect to lose 3 straight.

    I was just thinking about this Jano story and something just wasn’t adding up. And here is what i got. This chick must have a hell off a pair of lungs on her for someone to hear her screaming while she is in a walkin. As a former chef i know you can’t hear sh*t inside or out especially one in a nightclub.

  • raiderkoolaid

    Beat The Jets. Just come out on fire and do it. Don’t worry about the Pats until it’s time to. When it is time just go out and let it fly and let the chips fall where they may. If The Pats are looking past us one bit to the next week against The Jets they will be in trouble.

    Hey mista brown. … I said a couple of days ago that I wish dhb’s knee is still hurting this Sunday so we can see more denarios Moore… and some fool jumped all over calling me a cold Raiders fan….. shoot man.. I just think dmoore is already much better than dhb.. that’s all. . I don’t want Dhb. Hurt but I don’t want him playing over wr ‘s that are much better than him either..

  • raiderinparadise

    Raiderkoolaid … totally agree. Just get it done. I dont care if we have Special team scores, FG’s, sloppy win or big win, just win baby. This game is crucial …. 2-1 will go a long ways for this team after that Buffalo collapse.

    If we sweep NY & NE that means a couple things.

  • mcthompso

    As far as Nnamdi goes:

    Look at our secondary without him. That in itself should account for something. Also, his interception Sunday–he made a play on that ball. He dropped back on one guy, and then read Ryan’s eyes and jumped the route. He made that play. So what if he made 16 tackles last year? He is a man to man corner. He’s not there to rack up Patrick Willis tackling numbers. My picture of Nnamdi in run support is knocking people down by their legs, and I can remember like one missed tackle since he’d been a star. All Raider players on the roster for the last 9 years, at least, have been atrocious against the run. Can’t blame a CB for that.

    I understand. The guy left. He was our guy, and he left. But being angry at him, or thinking he made too much money as a CB, does not take away that he is one of the best in the game. Come on. It’s pretty obvious that he dominates his position.

    RIGHT ON!

    As soon as he is better DHB will be back starting.He can be a good 3 or 4 receiver.Put D Moore,Ford & Murphy in there with DMC and BOSS at TE and let er rip.Our offense can run with any in this league if Coach Jax just have faith.If we can see this why can’t he?

    To me it sounds like the chick is just trying to get an easy pay day. She won’t get it. She has zero credibility.

  • dpro328

    I read these comments all the time and most of u are spot on. Are u kidding me with #21? long arms great at press coverage. Great attitude. All DB’s give up big plays. #21 does maybe 2-3 times a year but I’ll guarentee if he was there Sunday in Buff we would have won!! He doesn’t get stats cause he doesn’t get action. We will miss him a ton by end of the year when he’s in the playoffs and we Raider fans will be watching.

  • raiderzmaverick

    You guys are full of schite about Aso! He blanketed receivers. I remember him a whole game on L. Fitzgerald where he took him out of the game! I remember him doing the same to Andre Johnson for the whole game until later when we put another CB on him.

    He had these guys covered so well, QBs didn’t even try to squeeze the ball on, even if it was their best receiver.

    Being so damned effective that your receiver gets no catches is not being crapy!

    I think he allowed 1 touchdown last year. If we had another corner like thawed be able to totally take away those high powered offenses that depend almost entirely on the pass.

  • raiderzmaverick

    Al Davis didn’t pay him like a QB because he was crap. He overpaid him and realized he got screwed and because of abysmal failure in negotiating before didn’t even offer him a contract!

  • raiderzmaverick

    When he gets stubborn over something and has a fixed idea about it he doesn’t budge. He thought he got boned (and he did on many other contracts as well). So rather than pay him 18 mil he let him walk. He didn’t even try to give a 10 or 12 mil a year contract like we have to Routt.

    If you don’t think Aso is good look at our passing yards per game given up compared to last year. And it’s not like we played the Patriots, Packers, Saints etc yet.
