Ellis: Rex Not Happy with Defense

The Jets defense played a hell of game yesterday. They allowed only 10 points, both scores coming on short fields. They had five sacks and three fumble recoveries. They allowed only 131 yards of total offense, 5 completions, and just one first down in the second half.

However, the wasn’t good enough for Rex Ryan, who reportedly lashed out at the defense after the game.

“According to Rex we played [bleepy],” Ellis told The Post of Rex Ryan’s words to the defense after the game. “He said we weren’t good enough. I guess we needed a shutout. I guess that’s what he was talking about.”

The criticism did not sit well with the defensive players, likely explaining why most of them bolted from the locker room before reporters were allowed in. Linebacker Bart Scott, the so-called leader of the group, had someone bring him his clothes from his locker.

“It’s frustrating to hear that because we played a solid game,” Ellis said. “I guess he just expects so much out of the defense that there should have been zero points on the board, not 10.”
