Well, he threw his defense under the bus.
Jets Defensive Players Unhappy with Rex Ryanwww.ffmastermind.com

The New York Post reports Jets DE Shaun Ellis couldn't believe what HC Rex Ryan said after Sunday’s 10-6 loss to the Dolphins. The Jets' defense held the Dolphins to 131 yards of total offense, a total of six first downs (one in the second half) and just five completions. The defense produced five sacks and three fumble recoveries. "According to Rex we played [bleepy]," Ellis said of HC Rex Ryan's words to the defense after the game. "He said we weren't good enough. I guess we needed a shutout. I guess that's what he was talking about." The criticism did not sit well with the defensive players, likely explaining why most of them bolted from the locker room before reporters were allowed in. LB Bart Scott, the so-called leader of the group, had someone bring him his clothes from his locker. "It's frustrating to hear that because we played a solid game," Ellis said. "I guess he just expects so much out of the defense that there should have been zero points on the board, not 10."
