Rex Ryan Is Coaching For His Job, So There’s Nothing Wrong With Push-Up Rule
There were very few people who projected the New York Jets would be sitting at 2-1 heading into week four this season. It hasn’t been pretty, but wins are wins in the NFL. It’s no secret that Rex Ryan will need as many of them as he can get to save his job. One thing that’s hindering the Jets’ chances of getting wins so far, has been penalties. They set a franchise record by totaling 20 penalties this past weekend, which is just a truly astounding. Overall, New York leads the league in penalties with 34 so far this season.
Ryan has seen enough and decided to implement a new rule – a push-up rule. The gist of the rule is that anytime a player commits a penalty in practice, everyone besides the player must drop down and do 10 push-ups. The rule means everybody, as even team owner Woody Johnson is not immune. Ryan also implemented this same rule back in 2010.
As military-esk as this rule seems, I don’t blame Ryan one bit. The man is coaching for his job and he has no chance of retaining it if his team leads the league in penalties. 20 penalties in one game is just an absurd amount. With a roster that’s not exactly loaded with talent, the Jets can’t afford to shoot themselves in the foot. They have to become a more disciplined football team or they will ultimately suffer the consequences.
