The Jets’ Robert Saleh comparisons have Rex Ryan ‘p***** off.’
Midway through the 2021 season, things appear to be rapidly deteriorating for the New York Jets.
Gang Green has now dropped four of their last five games.
Their porous defense has been the main culprit.
According to ESPN, they have given up 175 points in their last four games, which is the second most by any team since the 1970 AFLNFL merger.
One ESPN analyst has had enough and has decided to go on an epic rant to let the rest of the world know.

The former Jets head coach is sick of being compared to other teams.
On Monday morning, ESPN analyst and former Jets head coach Rex Ryan appeared on DiPietro and Rothenberg, and he didn’t mince words when asked about head coach Robert Saleh:
“This is an appalling defense.
This guy is supposed to be a defensive guru, and I’ve heard it all, and I’m taking it personally.
They claimed that this guy [Saleh] is a lot like me, but without the negative aspects.
Well, you’re going to need some of that bad part because this team doesn’t have any.
Never compare Robert Saleh to me.
Here’s something they’ll be used to: the San Francisco 49ers have finished dead last in their division four out of the last five years, so he’s used to it.
When I hear that his background is similar to yours, I get a little irritated. No, it isn’t.”
Rex Ryan was asked about (hashtag)Jets HC Robert Saleh’s job performance.
It’s worth listening to his responses to @HDumpty39 and @RothenbergESPN.

People compared Saleh’s hiring to the Jets’ initial hiring of Rex Ryan.
In theory, he could still bring creative proven defensive concepts, but he wouldn’t have the “bad stuff,” such as the blusterbravado that the media adored during daily press conferences.
The problem is that Jets fans aren’t getting either right now.
As his team has been beaten to a pulp, Saleh has remained emotionless on the sidelines…
