Rex Ryan a Solid Hire for New York Jets

Rex Ryan will be a good hire for the New York Jets.

It may be cliche, but in all sports good defense usually beats good offense and wins championships.

The Ravens had a good defense with stellar personnel. The Jets may still need some players, but those players also need a leader to motivate them to their full potential.

Ryan is a fiery guy.

Good. The Jets could use that.

Grab some headlines. Be entertaining. Enjoy the back and forth with the media.  Look how well threatening to stab someone worked for Jerry Manuel. Overnight, he went from someone we weren't excited about to a really fun dude.

Ryan should consider punching Favre in the nose after his next interception. It might just be the wake-up call this franchise needs.
