Taking the Pulse of Gang Green Nation – Part 3

Malcolm DiazCorrespondent IAugust 4, 2009

Well it’s finally our turn to shine in’s continuing series, “Taking The Pulse Of Gang Green Nation“. I must admit I am honored to be a part of this series, where various Jets writers were asked 5 questions about the New York Jets. It is humbling to be considered a part of this elite group of writers.

Here is an excerpt of my answers to John B’s questions;

1. If you could go back to January, would Rex Ryan be your first choice to coach to 2009 Jets. If the answer is no, who would you choose? Eric Mangini? Somebody else?

Emphatically, YES! Rex Ryan would definitely be my first choice if I were to go back. I admit that I was (just like most Jets fans I think) completely wooed by the idea of possibly seeing Bill Cowher come to New York, but when I heard about Rex landing the job I was overjoyed to say the least. I love the swagger Rex brings with him and I really feel his lively, animated way of doing things is truly a breath of fresh air in Jets land. Things like the email he recently sent his team to fire them up about being picked to finished last in the division, just make me love him even more. We haven’t played a single down for this man and I am already a loyal supporter.
