You knew Jets HC Rex Ryan wouldn't be shy about sharing his thoughts on the NFL Defensive Player of the Year going to Packers CB Charles Woodson -- and he wasn't.
"I wasn't going to comment on it, but I was really going to comment on it," he said. "You know what I would like? I would like to congratulate the people who voted for Darrelle Revis, that these guys obviously really know the game. You've got to look at the numbers, not just a number about this or a number about that, this stat or that stat.
"A number I think is interesting would be eight, and, no, that's not the amount of touchdown passes that Green Bay gave up against Arizona. That is the number of touchdown passes we gave up all season as the Jets, and the biggest reason for that is Darrelle Revis."
Ryan said Revis had the best season by a cornerback that he's ever seen. He also added, "Revis is going for different hardware right now." So take that, Woodson.
I was on the panel of 50 voters, and I'm not going to reveal my choice ... well, let's just say it wouldn't be popular among Cheesehead Nation. I put a lot of thought into it, talking to people and studying the numbers, and I felt that Revis' impact on the Jets' defense went beyond pure stats. Without him, they wouldn't have made the playoffs and they probably would've been a sub-.500 team.
Woodson captured 28 votes, Revis 14.
