New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has never been known for mincing words whether praising or criticizing his team. He had plenty of the latter to do after Sunday's 45-19 loss to the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The Jets fell behind, 28-0, and, after cutting the margin to 28-13 at halftime, watched the Eagles score the next 17 points. "That was about as bad as it gets, especially in the first half and early in the third quarter," Ryan said. "We couldn't stop them on defense.

MUST HAVE been something in the bleeping air at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Sunday night. The Patriots beat the Jets, 37-16, and apparently - both during and after the game - the teams' head coaches used some, shall we say, colorful language. The New York Post reported that after the game, Patriots coach Bill Belichick hugged his son, Stephen, and said, "Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, suck my [bleep]. " Nice father-son bonding, huh?

Three weeks ago, on the heels on a two-game losing streak punctuated by a dose of Tim Tebowmania, the Jets were a down bunch, unsure of their postseason possibilities. Now, after having beaten the Chiefs on Sunday, the 8-5 Jets leapfrogged Cincinnati, Tennessee and Oakland, all 7-6 after losses, and took over the last wild-card spot in the AFC. "It's just what we've been talking about for the last 12, 13 weeks," linebacker Calvin Pace said. "It all came to form [Sunday], which is what we needed.

Though he was part of the entire coaching staff fired by Baltimore, defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, son of former Eagles coach Buddy Ryan, reportedly will be considered for the Ravens' head-coaching job. Brian Billick was fired Monday after a 5-11 season. The Baltimore Sun said Ryan is a favorite of the players. In Ryan's first two seasons, the defense was ranked fifth in 2005 and first in 2006. The defense was ranked fifth this season. Former Ravens assistant Kirk Ferentz, now head coach at Iowa, also could be a candidate.

With the ink not even dry on the New York Jets' dreadful season, Rex Ryan fled to the Bahamas only to be photographed lounging poolside at a resort hotel, book in hand, with an interesting tattoo gracing his right biceps. It showed his wife, Michelle, wearing an unmistakably green Jets jersey emblazoned with the unmistakable No. 6 of embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez. And nothing else. The New York Daily News ran a front-page photo Friday and by lunchtime it was an Internet sensation.

You've got to love Rex Ryan. The Jets coach is one of those guys who repeatedly shoots his mouth off, abjectly apologizes, and promises to reform. Until the next time. On Wednesday Ryan called Chargers counterpart Norv Turner to clarify comments he made in a conference call with the San Diego media. Ryan was asked if he had reflected on what would have happened if he'd been hired in San Diego for his first NFL head coaching job - the position that went to Turner when both interviewed for it after the 2006 season.

No one has ever compared Fletcher Cox to Jerome Brown - at least not publicly - but Rex Ryan knew what he was saying when he compared the Eagles defensive end to one of the greatest defensive linemen in team history. "That [No.] 91 is a good player," Ryan said of Cox. "I was laughing when I saw him being compared to Jerome Brown, but I'm not laughing now. " Cox is entering rarefied air. He proved worthy of comparisons to Brown with another disruptive performance. Cox led the Eagles with a team-high seven solo tackles, recorded a sack, and had two other tackles for losses Sunday in a 23-20 win over Ryan's Buffalo Bills.

Rex Ryan spent part of his summer vacation running from angry bulls. The New York Jets coach joined thousands of thrill-seekers on Sunday and Monday in the annual running of the bulls at the San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain. The Cleveland Browns are giving a jersey to the family of a fan who asked for six players to serve as pallbearers at his funeral. In an obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, Scott E. Entsminger , 55, a lifelong Browns fan, requested "six Cleveland Browns pallbearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.

PHOENIX - Rex Ryan said the Bills were stunned when the Eagles called in early March and offered running back LeSean McCoy in a trade. The new Buffalo coach said the deal that eventually sent linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Eagles for McCoy took all of 30 minutes. "We were just kind of like stunned there a little bit," Ryan said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. "We were like, 'Really? Like, wow. Let's just take it from there.' Obviously we were interested. . . . We knew it wasn't going to be cheap by any stretch and losing a player like Kiko Alonso is obviously a steep price.

Leaning on a wall outside the visiting locker room at Lincoln Financial Field late Sunday afternoon, Mike Tannenbaum didn't dare discuss how Mark Sanchez had helped to win him one more football game. The Dolphins' vice president of football operations, Tannenbaum was the Jets' general manager in 2009 when they traded up to draft Sanchez with the fifth overall pick, so sure were he and Rex Ryan that Sanchez's elite pedigree and affable personality made him the perfect franchise quarterback.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 17 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Jets at Bills. The Jets have a playoff berth at stake, while the Bills have only Rex Ryan's ego on the line. That's never kept opposing teams from trouncing him, though; so look for Fitzpatrick to keep feeding the ball to his consistently productive receivers. Tim Hightower, RB, Saints at Falcons. Hightower has been a late-season gem for the Saints and his fantasy owners, and he's coming off his best game since . . . well . . . ever.

GIANTS (-3) over Eagles Two teams going nowhere, playing for nothing. J effrey Lurie just pink-slipped Chip Kelly , so I guess we can't use the term "Kelly's Heroes" anymore. On the New York side, head coach Tom Coughlin has one foot out the door. So, if anyone can sit across the table from me and tell me that they can figure out the right side in this game, I'll listen. And if you tell me, or anyone tells you, that this game is a stone-cold lock, run. Will the Birds be happy to get out of Chip's cage and go nuts against the New Yorkers?

Chip Kelly and Rex Ryan were geniuses at different times for the same amount of time: two years. That's how long each of them had atop that pedestal before the rest of the NFL knocked them off. If you're a head coach and want to be a genius for more than two years, you'd better have Joe Montana or Tom Brady as your quarterback. Otherwise, there will be a reckoning, and it will be humbling. Kelly's reckoning, of course, began in the final four weeks of last season, his second with the Eagles, and has continued through the first 12 weeks of this one. His up-tempo, simplified-playbook approach to offense doesn't catch opponents off guard as often as it once did, and his reliance on a rigorous sports science program has at times inspired eye rolls from at least some of his players.

While many athletes profess not to care about statistics, Eagles outside linebacker Brandon Graham is candid when speaking of the subject, especially when it comes to quarterback sacks. While Graham emphasized that wins are most important, he was thrilled and relieved to reach a personal sack milestone in last week's 35-28 win at New England against the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots. With his second sack of Tom Brady, Graham boosted his season total to 61/2 sacks. His old career high was 51/2, which he had accomplished twice, in 2012 and again last season.

CHIP KELLY doesn't seem to be getting a lot of love from high-profile running backs. Kelly spent most of his news conference Wednesday trying to explain away the ESPN story about DeMarco Murray sharing his frustrations over his role in Kelly's offense with team chairman Jeffrey Lurie on the flight home from the team's biggest win of the season, Sunday at New England. Then, on a conference call with Philadelphia-area media, LeSean McCoy was asked about Kelly's assertion that he would probably shake hands with McCoy when he saw the Eagles' all-time rushing leader before Sunday's game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Tyrod Taylor would not be the best quarterback to run Chip Kelly's vision of a zone-read offense. He was, however, the best alternative available during an offseason in which the Eagles' coach/general manager paid a high price to bring in Sam Bradford from the St. Louis Rams. This, of course, is hindsight and we know how clear our vision can be with that as an aide. But listen to Kelly talk about Taylor and you wonder if there's just a tinge of regret for not signing a guy who was available as a free agent at the low cost of $3.35 million over three seasons.

IT IS INESCAPABLE, this topic of violence and the NFL. It's as if the league relishes it. On the heels of Greg Hardy's latest battery-related upheaval, Rex Ryan and the Bills have called for a spotlight. To date, Ryan's most remarkable accomplishments since the Jets ran him out of MetLife Stadium center on his hiring practices. First, Ryan signed outcast hazer Richie Incognito in February. Then, Ryan traded for diva running back LeSean McCoy. Finally, Ryan signed fringe linebacker IK Enemkpali off waivers a day after the Jets cut him for breaking the jaw of franchise quarterback Geno Smith in a locker room fight . . . over a $600 debt Enemkpali believed Smith owed him. Thursday, Enemkpali will be one of the captains when the Bills visit the Jets for the first time under Ryan.
