    Rex Ryan challenges Jets tackles to weight-loss contest

    NEW YORK — Already pegged for their close-up on HBO’s "Hard Knocks" this summer, the New York Jets [team stats] will apparently have their own version of a reality show over the next 11-plus weeks: seeing who can be "The Biggest Loser."

    Rex Ryan has challenged nose tackle Kris Jenkins and right tackle Damien Woody to a weight-loss contest, which officially began with the trio weighing in at the team’s training facility Monday. Ryan, who had lap band surgery in March to help curb his weight and is currently 311 pounds, announced the contest while on ESPN Radio’s "Michael Kay Show."

    The one who drops the most pounds by 9 a.m. July 30 will receive an undisclosed financial compensation that will be donated to the charity of his preference. Woody was listed at 330 pounds last season and Jenkins hovered around 360 before tearing his left ACL on Oct. 18.

    "I just think it’s going to be a fun thing," Ryan told newyorkjets.com before hopping on the radio. "It’s just a thing where I said let’s take a look at some guys who need to shed a couple of pounds ... Damien and Kris. And I’m going to do the same thing. I’ve already lost 37, 38 pounds, but that’s not included in this.

    "The guys are going to have fun with it. There’s an offensive player, a defensive player and a 47-year-old coach. The handicappers, I don’t know how they’re going to view this."

    Maybe if Rex deflated his ego he could drop another 50 pounds.

    Big Man preaching when he's on a diet. Let's see Ryan lose some weight without surgery and then he can challenge anyone he wants.

    Yeah, what a loser.  Charlie Weiss could do it, why can't Rex?

    Honestly, Rex seems like a decent fellow.  Good for him.

    Weis got gastro or something. i remember this because Brady had to take the stand when Weis sued the doctor.

    Ryan gets maybe 1/10 of 1 brownie point for trying to be polite.  He's just called two of his offensive linemen uncoachable fat blobs in public.  He couldn't control either one of them in private and now they'll be suddenly back in shape (which is really a bit out of shape) in September.  I guess when you cashier the heart and soul of the Jets and then bring in high priced cash-only jerks who pick fights in bars, some of the other team members don't give a potato what coach thinks about fitness carrying over into the season.

    There is no way the Jets could have a dominant D with Jenkins or a great running game with Woody.  It's just plain impossible.
