New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora indicated that they weren’t too happy about all of bold predictions that Jets head coach Rex Ryan’s made last season before they played the Jets on Christmas Eve.
“I didn’t play that game but I was in the meetings and all that stuff, man, they didn’t like that at all,’’ Umenyiora said Tuesday on WFAN, making the media rounds to promote M&M’s new personalized candy, per the New York Post. “I just knew the Jets were gonna get a beat-down after all that trash talking they were doing. I think Rex has pretty much learned his lesson about that. I like the way he coaches, I think he’s a wonderful coach but you really don’t want to be poking a bear with a short stick like that.’’
This is the first year that we won’t have to hear Ryan make some crazy prediction about winning the Super Bowl. It’s really a breath of fresh air to not have to hear him.
