Rex Ryan suggested Wildcat Formation last week?

Makes no bones about it, Rex Ryan has always stirred the pot on defense.

However, in a twist the week leading up to the Jets’ comeback victory on Sunday in Washington, Ryan decided to flip sides of the ball – suggested to coordinator Brian Schottenheimer that the team go more often with the wildcat formation, according to Filip Bondy of the New York Daily News.

It was a strategy that succeeded on a modest scale, after requiring a considerable amount of preparation.

“It was a difficult week of practice,” said guard Matt Slausen. “But it all worked out.”

The change was an indication of just how far Ryan and his coaches have been willing to go in recent weeks to turn around what seemed an almost hopeless cause after the Week 11 Thursday night loss in Denver.
