Kevin Kernan of the New York Post reports Jets coach buried a game ball from Monday night's 45-3 loss by the Jets' practice field as the team watched.
“This morning (Ryan) made us get out of a team meeting and he buried a football in the ground along the sideline on the field and said, ‘Just forget about it, forget about this game.’ It was actually a game ball from Monday night,’’ Darrelle Revis said. “Rex said, ‘We’re burying this game and what happened Monday night, and let’s move forward.’"
Revis said Ryan took the team by surprise.
“He told us to go outside and we were all saying, ‘What are we doing? Going on a field trip or something?'" Revis said. "The hole was right there, already dug, there with the dirt on the side and he threw the ball in the hole. It was a funeral for a game ball.
"That might be the best I ever saw, I never seen a coach do that. You usually hear a coach say, 'Let’s bury this game.' Rex actually buried it. Everybody was in shock, nobody said anything.’’
This guy can coach. The "Field Trip" and burial should stick in his guys' minds and help them get past the terrible defeat.
