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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

NEW YORK - The Jets' search for a general manager has taken an interesting turn as Tom Gamble, San Francisco's director of player personnel, has entered as the front-runner to replace Mike Tannenbaum. Gamble and Jets coach Rex Ryan have some history, since their fathers worked together with the Eagles. Harry Gamble was the team president when Buddy Ryan was the Eagles' coach in the late 1980s. Tom Gamble played a key role in helping general manager Trent Baalke turn the 49ers into one of the NFL's top franchises.

SAY IT AIN'T so, Jimmy. Rollins was traded to the Dodgers in December, but, for 15 seasons, he was a fan favorite while playing for the Phillies. In a recent interview with Ken Rosenthal, of Fox Sports, Rollins acknowledged that he "loved" playing in Philly, but also said he felt "free" as he embarks on his first season with the Dodgers. "I feel like I'm free to be myself without someone on my shoulder," Rollins said. "Obviously, everyone has parameters and limits. You have to play within the boundaries.

YESTERDAY WAS a dark day for four NFL coaches, at least three anyway, as they got their pink slips. The first Monday after the regular season is when the ax falls on the neck of those whom management perceives as not getting the job done. The Bears' Mark Trestman was let go because his defense was awful and his quarterback was worse. Rex Ryan was let go by the Jets because his quarterback was awful and, well, it was time. And Mike Smith was let go by the Falcons. His quarterback was decent, but his team wasn't.

IN JANUARY 2009, Mark Sanchez held a news conference to announce he was leaving USC a year early. He shared the dais with his then-coach, Pete Carroll. Carroll made it clear they did not share the same feelings. A blogger for the LA Times wrote: "Carroll was visibly unhappy, refusing to sit down for part of the press conference and saying that he disagreed with the decision based on a number of factors. 'We don't see this decision the same,' he said. 'Mark is going against the grain on this decision.

By now, everyone agrees that the story the Eagles and their fans hope is evolving - the rag-arm-to-riches resurrection of Mark Sanchez - is going to be a great one, if only it would actually happen. If Sanchez continues to win in relief of the injured Nick Foles, and keeps the Eagles on course for a postseason run, then, yes, it will be one heck of a story. Not only would it be a feel-good turning point for Sanchez, who exited New York after four active seasons with the Jets as an object of ridicule, but it would certainly add to the growing legend of Charles Kelly, Miracle Man. The only problem with such a comeback and such a story is that the NFL doesn't appear to offer a precedent of anything quite like it ever happening before.

The low point? You want to know the low point for Mark Sanchez during his career with the New York Jets? You want an understanding of and appreciation for how far he's come, how different everything is for him, now that he has assumed the Eagles' starting quarterback job because of Nick Foles' cracked clavicle? Seriously, you want to know how bad it was? Good luck with that. Good luck plumbing those depths. It's impossible to pinpoint just one moment. Think about this: Over the final 51/2 weeks of the 2012 season, the last one in which Sanchez took a regular-season snap for the Jets, the following happened: He was involved in what might be the greatest gaffe in football history - the "butt-fumble" on Thanksgiving night against the New England Patriots.

To understand just how good the Eagles have it at quarterback with Nick Foles as their starter and veteran Mark Sanchez as his backup, all you have to do is look around the NFL. First, let's head down to South Florida, where it's Week 4 and Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin arrived for work Monday unwilling to say who would start Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders in London. That announcement came from Ryan Tannehill, who had started the first three games of the season and played unimpressively enough that his coach had every reason to wonder about his ability to do the job. "I'm taking the first snap of the game," Tannehill told Dolphins reporters Wednesday.

THE LAST TIME Mark Sanchez took the field in a preseason game, he saw the life crushed from his 2013 season and his New York Jets career. Sanchez, 27, begins his comeback tomorrow night in Chicago. And though he has no idea how much he will play behind starting quarterback Nick Foles, who is scheduled to get about 10 to 15 snaps along with the rest of the first-teamers, at least this time Sanchez knows he's scheduled to play. Last Aug. 24, as a Jet, Sanchez watched rookie Geno Smith quarterback most of a preseason game against the Giants.

MARK SANCHEZ wanted Matt Barkley to take his place. In January 2008, he was the host for Barkley when the high-school junior came for an official visit to the University of Southern California. Barkley liked it enough that he decided in to become a Trojan, and succeeded Sanchez in 2009. Now Sanchez is returning the favor, just on a bigger stage. Sanchez, 27, took the reps with the second-team offense in organized team activities last week, giving him the inside track to back up Nick Foles as Eagles quarterback.

Mark Sanchez passed his physical on Thursday, and the former New York Jets quarterback will sign a contract with the Eagles on Friday, a source close to the situation said. Sanchez and the Eagles have agreed to terms. Fox Sports reported that his contract is for one year and worth more than $4 million. The 27-year-old Sanchez, who spent his first five seasons in the NFL with the New York Jets, arrived in Philadelphia on Wednesday night and spent part of the next day at the NovaCare Complex getting examined.
