Rex Pumped Jets Up By Saying He’d Punch Belichick

Jets_Rex_2013Jets coach Rex Ryan once told his team he planned to beat up Patriots coach Bill Belichick before a meeting between the two teams.

That’s the word from former Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who says that Ryan would say crazy things to pump up his team, and that one of those things included a vow to take Belichick out.

“Rex got in front of us, he said, ‘I’m going to set the tempo today, guys,’ he said, ‘I’m going to set the tempo. When I meet Bill Belichick in the center of the field, I’m going to start it off and punch him in the face,’” Tomlinson recalled on NFL Network.

Tomlinson called Ryan a “master motivator” and said he always knew exactly the right way to fire his players up.
