Re: Jets Defense Not Happy with Rex

Unless you're in an individual sport, like boxing, you should keep your mouth shut. Ali was one of the very few who could mouth off then get into the arena and live up to his hype. Well, mostly.
I personally prefere the rejuvenated George Foreman style. Talk up your opponent before hand. And if you dispatch him quickly or easily, do like George did. Talk about how you felt his power, how you knew he could dispatch you quickly, and "keep me from my cheeseburger if he hit me again. I'm glad I was fortunate enough to land the heavy blows first."
In a team sport, it's best to be like Tom or BB, talk up your opponents before hand, praise them after, win lose or draw. Show some class.
It's like people who score. Be a professional. You should act like you've been there before, and expect to be there again. Stop the stupid dancing.
Rex was dancing in the end zone before the game even started. And even after his drubbing at our hands, and his attempt to be humble, he couldn't leave if alone. He said something stupid along the lines that we'd play again, right now if they'd be willing to go back out there.
What a blow hard, classless ar se. Now we know why his former team chose not to make him their head coach. He's the T.O. of coaching.
