Jets head coach Robert Saleh speaks on the story of Brian Kelly making him and Matt LaFleur shovel his driveway back in the day

After the Jets’ embarrassing loss against the Bills this past Sunday, former coach Rex Ryan didn’t hold back when talking about the job first-year head coach Robert Saleh has done thus far.

“This guy is supposed to be a defensive guru,” Ryan said in an interview with ESPN Radio’s DiPietro & Rothenberg Monday morning. “I take it personal. Everything I heard was this guy is a lot like myself, but without the bad part. Some of the bad part you need, because this team doesn’t want to play with any damn heart. That’s the thing that is disappointing to me.

“Don’t ever compare this Robert Saleh guy to me. Statistically, one time they were a top defense. Four out of five years the 49ers were dead last in their division. So, they are going to be dead last again. He’s going to be used to that. To me, I am little pissed off about it when I heard his background is a lot like yours. No, it isn’t. No, it isn’t.”

Robert Saleh held firm when asked about Rex Ryan’s comments.

“I’ve never met Rex. I’ve never had a conversation with Rex,” Saleh said in his weekly spot on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio. “I don’t even know him except for people who know him throughout the league.

“Obviously, if it’s that personal for him, he knows where to find me.”

Robert Saleh’s brother, David, took it a step further on Twitter – poking fun at Ryan’s weight as well as his well-knownfoot fetish.

It’s not overly surprising that Rex Ryan and Robert Saleh now have beef. Ever since he was in the league, Ryan has had no problem opening up his mouth to start some things with coaches around the league.

I think we need Rex back in the NFL purely for the entertainment value.
