Robert Saleh applauds the ex-Jets trainer: “He knows where to find me”

It wasn’t long before Robert Saleh, head coach of the New York Jets, reacted after his announcement.

On Monday morning ESPN analyst Rex Ryan made waves on social media after calling Saleh about his team’s heartlessness. As if that wasn’t enough, Ryan also said that he would never want to be compared to Saleh again because they are not on the same pitch on defense.

“This guy is supposed to be a defensive guru. I take this personally. All I heard was that this guy is a lot like me, but without the bad part. Well some of the bad parts you need. This team doesn’t play with a bloody heart. Never compare this guy, this Robert Saleh, to me. “

Just a few hours later, Saleh did his weekly appearance on the Michael Kay Show and was asked about the Ryan Jab:

“Guys, honestly, you know what I’ve never met Rex, I’ve never had a conversation with him, I don’t even know him, except for people who know him all over the league. If it’s so personal for him, of course he knows where to find me. “

He was then asked if he was surprised by Ryan’s comments, to which he replied: “I’m not surprised by him, he always has something to say.”

All of that criticism from Ryan came from the Jets’ recent loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 10, which they were blown 45:17.

Not only was Gang Green wiped out by an AFC East division enemy, but their defenses mimicked a pair of saloon doors as they let the Bills go right through them throughout the game:

There is no denying how incapable and embarrassing to be and Ryan seized the moment and buried Saleh for his fights.

The product on the field was obviously lackluster, but one of the biggest criticisms of Saleh was its lack of emotion on the sidelines.

No matter what happened on the field, whenever the camera switches to Saleh, he appears stoic, robotic and completely emotionless.

What made him unique and attractive in many ways during his tenure as the San Francisco 49ers Defensive Coordinator was his ability to ride the emotional roller coaster.

When the defense got a big stop, Saleh had his emotions up his sleeve and regularly partied with his players and jumped around.

We didn’t see this during his time at the Jets and even though Saleh has stated that this is because he has a more CEO-oriented approach with the team, it still rubbed people in the wrong direction.

The perception when Saleh shows no emotions during blowouts creates the impression that he doesn’t care, even if it is not true that this is the perception.

The antidote to correcting all of this is simply to win. If you win soccer games, no one will care about your emotions or their lack of them.

For what it’s worth, Saleh remains optimistic that this thing will “tip over”. During his open availability to the media on Monday, at a time like this, he was asked for his message to Jets fans and he reiterated that this matter is going to be turned, “he knows it in his heart”.
