VIDEO: Rex Ryan Gives Hilarious Answer When Asked How He Would Stop The Chiefs Offense
For years, Rex Ryan was considered one of the top defensive minds in football. During his time as the defensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens, Ryan's unit had a top-3 scoring defense twice, as well as a top-8 scoring defense twice as the head coach of the New York Jets.
He seems more than happy to be out of the league and not having to stop today's explosive offenses, however. He made that abundantly clear with his hilarious answer when Pat McAfee asked him how he would stop Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs offense.
His first reaction to how he'd handle trying to stop the Chiefs? Faking sick and handing the keys over to another coach to handle that one.
Ryan even goes on to make the claim that Mahomes, as the highest-paid player in NFL history, is still underpaid.
Eventually taking his answer more seriously, Ryan says "mixing it all" is the only way to try to stop the Chiefs — saying that Mahomes needs to be challenged while defenders need to bring pressure on the receivers and offensive line. The one team he thinks may be capable of doing that is the Ravens.
If you had any doubts about just how dangerous the Chiefs' offense is, they should be erased by hearing this kind of a reaction from such a great defensive coach.
