Rex Ryan sometimes says some smart things. No, in fact. Well, at least once.
"Let's get [expletive] snack, & # 39; & # 39; perhaps his most famous expression of turning the Jets 2010 on "Back Knocks" back when he was a coach, an approved philosophy and lifestyle in this space. Yes, Rex, let's have a snack. Maybe two.
He's probably much more well-known for saying … good things, which are not weird. Ryan, who trained the Jets (2009-14) and Bills (2015-16), is now an NFL studio analyst on ESPN, and said one of those things that are not weird on Sunday before the & # 39 compliance ; The Patriots with the Jets, a game that won New England with a lot of lack, 27-13.
Ryan said that Patriots 2018 could be a worst team of Tom Brady's life.
The comment was not much notice – Ryan's great star turned this week into a reluctant movie debate during the "NFL Countdown" Thanksgiving from the famous nickname Mark Sanchez – and his fellow panelists did not live .
But they should have it, because it's a lot of things to say, and coets that spent eight terms in the same department should have an institutional memory slightly better than that.
He won Sunday over the Jets to improve the Patriots record to 8-3. At the moment they are in number No. 2 in the AFC playoff race behind the 9-2 Chiefs, a team that they have beaten this year. They have had an uneven season by their standards, with a number of talented offensive players at different stages of their careers trying to match a quarter of a 41-year-old flash that flashes occasional signs of football deaths at a time first.
They have been struggling with the road (they are 3-3 away from the Gillette Stadium), but mostly, they have been desirable, especially in the lack of victories over teams that turned later to be quite good (Texans, Bears, Colts).
They've won 7 last 8, and despite the loss of the 24th Titanians defeat, optimism with this team should be optimized – even if & # 39; n careful – rather than any white that they did not dominate enough.
They are not the Gloders of 2007, breaking the league every Sunday for her hell, but they seem to be quite good for me, and they prove they have a character along the way. Perhaps we're just like to end this story.
The worst Patriots team of the Brady period? I can not see that there is something close to the final conclusion with this team. Even if Ryan means only pure talent, it's wrong. (Super Bowl champions 2001 had a lesser talent than current lists, for example, even though I heard you on any thing you'd like to do) Josh Gordon / Terry Glenn)

So let's help Rexy out. We will not list all Patriots teams from the Brady period, and we will call 2001-18 although it was on the list in 2000. But we will group them with each other in terms of achievement and appeal, and it should be quite easy to identify which was the worst of the lot. I have already remembered. I'll bet you too.
THE BEST OF BEST: 2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, 2016
Simple control: If you install a banner, you belong to this elite category. Patriots 2001 may have been the most dear team they had ever had because everything was as impossible, all of it. The 2004 team may be the most talented and complete. For me, the Super Bowl victory could be the most satisfactory, because it had been nine seasons without one, and they did that against Pete Carroll that was pumped and a great defense by Seattle. And we'll never see again coming back to some of the Brady ones who have ordered them against the Falcons in 2016. It was 28-3 at one point, you know. I've seen that on a t-shirt.
THE BEST OF BEST, IF ONLY HIS DIFFERENT IN THE END: 2007
Give this like this. If we were able to turn out the 38-35 season-end victory during the Giants with a loss in the Super Bowl, this Patriots team would be considered unambiguously in NFL history. But you can not. We have all tried.
A VERY TIME TEAM DOES NOT DO YOUR ALL: 2006, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2017
This includes the other two Batriots teams who lost in the Super Bowl (11, & 17, 17), team with a fatal deficit (crew of League Arena level talents in the receiver) but he'd still won it all had to be able to catch off the Colts game at the AFC Championship Games, and a 10-minute team took 14-2 in the regular season, but Ryan & # 39; s Jets was shocked in the regional round. If I had to bet it right now, I would say that the Patriots will eventually be in this group. I really like them much better than the team.
TAMS BEAT-UP SHEETS IN YOUR SECTIONS I HAVE FORMED FOR FUTURE: 2005, 2013, 2015
Huge Dynasty Jake Plummer here. He can not still believe that the Patriots have lost a play game for each of those years ago. Or to Peyton Manning the spell three years ago, about that issue.
A VERY TEAM WILL NOT BE BRADY: 2008
I'm not sure how to categorize the season 08, and Brady had lost 15 ¾ games after having a severe knee injury in the opener. The story feels good in the sense that they have gone 11-5 and make a lot of money to Matt Cassel. But they did not make the playoffs, they did not have the chance to wind up at 07, and they found to win five fewer games in the regular season than they did the previous year. If you can have a mulligan season in football, I think that's it.
DIFFIN PATRIOTS TIMES MAKING MAKING THIS THIS WEBSITE WE DO WE DO NOT MAKE IT HERE, REX: 2002, 2009
The season was one long hanging of sports # 01; They started 3-0 – remember hype over Lawyer Milloy, Tebucky Jones and Victor Green's three-dedicated security pack? – but he lost four consecutively after that, and finished with nine wins, the least in Brady's age.
The team? Well, that's just like this period. They were strolled in the first round of the playoffs by the Ravens at the Gillette Stadium. Here is the team that forced Belichick to admit to Brady during an ugly loss to the Saint that can not calculate how to go to some of these men, a clip that was part of part "Football Life" part of Belichick.
You would think that Ryan would remember that the Patriots team for the first time was quite good – he was secondly a career as Jets took them in September.
